Happy New Year! Happy Carnival! Happy Day After Twelfth Night! Happy first Sunday Skim on 2018. I am changing up how I chronicle each Sunday Skim post and will now be doing them by season. I am hoping that this will give everyone an easier way to search through old posts.
Yesterday was Epiphany and the official start to Mardi Gras. We are taking down our Christmas tree and focusing on our Mardi Gras plans. This will be the first year that I am marching with the Prima Donnas so I am focused on my bustier and costume for February 9th. So that brings me to my first section…
Also, don’t miss out on our live event tomorrow night on Facebook. You can RSVP here. We will be discussing dressing for parades, balls and parties and talking a little bit about makeup and hair.
Fashion… Mardi Gras on my mind! Looking for the perfect thing to wear to parades? Check out these leggings. // I just ordered these fleece vests for the boys today. // Need the perfect party dress or something to wear to Krewe Du Vieux than take a look at this sequin beauty. // This gown is gorgeous and completely affordable and will be here in 5 to 7 days. // Footwear is something we all need to think about when we are going to be on our feet all weekend at the parades. These sneakers are comfortable and a great price. // I would not leave you hanging on the accessories so check out these earrings.
Family… We spent yesterday at the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans. Sometimes I forget how wonderful our zoo really is. We gave the boys each a map and let them be the tour guides for the day. They loved being in charge and getting to show us the zoo their way.
Food and Drink… This was a favorite from last year. If you are looking to satisfy you king cake craving without all of the calories try turning you vanilla protein shake into a King Cake Shake. Use 8 oz unsweetened plant milk, protein of your choice, handful of ice, dash of cinnamon, dash of vanilla extract, dash of almond extract. Blend and enjoy.
Health… I just finished a juice cleanse with Live Fit Nutrition last week. It was such a great experience for me and I feel and look amazing afterward. I needed something to jump start my clean eating plan for January and this was the perfect thing. If you are looking for an awesome cleanse that tastes as good as it is for your body look here.
Home… I just had to buy new sheets and these are my current obsession. I have a post coming out later in the week about home items that you need and these sheets made the list.
Lifestyle… I get a lot of questions about what kind of planner I use. The planner pad is my favorite and has been for years and I can’t find anything else that works as well for my needs.
Beauty… This is a new section I am going to try out. I am not the biggest beauty buff out there but I do like makeup. I just usually like what I like and I don’t look for a lot of new products. However I just bought the Jaclyn Hill eyeshadow pallet for Morphe and I am obsessed with it. This will also be a topic of discussion for my live event tomorrow night.
