The Sunday Skim – Winter 2018 – Five

Fashion...  Can you believe we are already talking about bathing suits???  They started hitting the shelves as soon as the winter coats disappeared.  I for one am not ready just yet but I have been checking out a few things here and there.  Kortni Jeane is a swimsuit line I came across last year and I can’t wait to rock one of their suits at the pool this summer.

Family…  Valentine’s Day is just about a week and a half away.  Because of Mardi Gras the boys schools are celebrating a week early.  I let them choose their own valentines this year but if it had been up to me I would have done these.

Food and Drink…  A friend of mine, Erika, launched a food blog this week.  She is a great cook and will be sharing her healthy and tasty home cooked meals.  So excited for her!  You can check her out here.

News…  Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow.  Six more weeks of winter.  Ugh.

Social…  This week starts the big Mardi Gras festivities in New Orleans.  The Krewe of Nyx rolls Wednesday night and The Krewe of Muses rolls Thursday.  Both of these all women krewes throw some amazing signature throws.  Muses is shoes and Nyx is purses.

My walking Krewe, the Prima Donnas, promenades Friday, February 9th.  We will start the day at Saks Fifth Avenue in Canal Place at 10 am and then start our Grand Promenade at 1pm.  Here is the route we take…

Our route:
Bourbon to St Peters
St Peters to Royal Street
Royal Street to Bienville
Bienville to Bourbon St.
Bourbon Street to the Tropical Isle Balcony

Health…  I know a lot of people start new diets and workout programs in January but here’s to the people who stick to it through January.  I have found it is so much easier to stick to my program when I am planning things out.  This graphic is great for when you need to replace an ingredient…

Lifestyle…  This week I launched an extension of the We Five Kings brand in the form of a newsletter called Adult(ish).  This is a collaboration with my friend Brandi where will be discussing topics for ladies in their 30’s and 40’s.  Join the group here.

Beauty…  I purchased the Jaclyn Hill Morphe eyeshadow Pallet over the holidays.  I have loved it for being able to do some dramatic looks for night events.  I found this tutuorial on Pinterest and it really helps guide you in using the bold colors.
