Fashion… January is my least favorite month. It is dreary and cold and everyone is sick and the stores are empty. I am so ready for spring fashions it’s not even funny. All my favorite people are at market this week and I have been getting some glimpses of what is going to be in stores soon and it is so good. Think pinks and reds and blues. Lots of floral and polka dots. Also two piece sets! Shouldn’t be too much longer though and the long days of winter will be over and spring will bloom. Stay tuned this week because Palm Village Mandeville – A Lilly Pulitzer store will be releasing their spring stock this Wednesday.
Family… I have taken my boys a few times to Bayou Yoga’s Mommy and Me class but it seems like it always falls on a weekend we have something to do. I do yoga at home a few days a week and they really like doing it with me. This would be a great opportunity to get the entire family more involved in doing something active especially if you have health goals for your family this year. Here are some great ideas to create a family yoga experience.
Food and Drink… My new favorite lunch or dinner is easy and delicious. I have been taking a rotisserie chicken and shredding the breasts. To a bowl I add avocado, salsa, black beans, jalapeno, lime, tomatoes, red onion and a little shredded cheese. Add the chicken to the top and mix. It reminds me of a Mexican chicken salad.
News… After all of the drainage issues in New Orleans the past year it should surprise no one that they removed 93,000 pounds of Mardi Gras beads from the catch basins. Just in time to fill them up again. Click here for more from Nola.com. I mean what do other cities even do for entertainment?
Health… I love this leg and glute workout!
Lifestyle… The last few weeks have been a little crazy. I had kids with the flu, snow days, Big Daddy out of town and some mysterious virus myself. My sleep has been erratic at best and I definitely have not been getting enough. Trying to get back on schedule this weekend so I feel refreshed on Monday. This graphic is great at explanig why we can’t catch up on sleep and instead need to create better sleeping habits.
Home… Are you familiar with Hygge? It’s the Scandinavian style of creating coziness. I love it and I love these home trends for 2018…
Beauty… The first beauty blender I used the wrong way. Johanna had to teach me how to use it correctly and it was incredible what a difference it made. This is a great tutorial on how to use a beauty blender the right way.
