The Sunday Skim – Spring 2018 – Seventeen

Welcome to the Sunday Skim.  Your weekly recap of all things fashion, family, food and drink, health, social, news, lifestyle, home and beauty.  Get your coffee, sit back and relax and enjoy the Sunday Skim.

Fashion.  This week Nordstrom revealed the line they have been working on with Julia Engel from Gal Meets Glam.  It’s exciting to see an Influencer and Blogger get the opportunity to work with a huge company like Nordstrom and I couldn’t bee happier for her.  I was also surprised to see that she made her dresses from size 2 to 20.  As a former plus sized girl I appreciate so much when a designer chooses to include sizes above a 12 in their line.  Check out her whole line here.

Family.  One of the things I am going to do with the boys this summer is a once a week STEM project.  I love this solar ovenx and I think they will really get a kick out of making s’mores.

Food and Drink.  Big Daddy and I agree on a lot of things.  One of them that we do not is my love for lemon.  If it were up to me just about everything would be lemon flavored.  Especially in the spring.  One of my favorite lemon recipes is Ina Garden’s lemon bars.  If you are a lemon lover too her recipes are the best.

Health.  We love vital proteins and use them daily in our morning coffee.  If you aren’t a coffee person you can put them in just about anything from oatmeal to yogurt.  This is a great recipe from the Motherchic on a vital proteins smoothie.

Social.  Mother’s Day is on my mind and you now only have two weeks to make your reservations!  Lakehouse in Mandeville, N’tinis and the Roosevelt are all excellent places to have a Mother’s Day brunch.

News.  By now every single person on the planet knows that William and Kate had their third baby.  Within hours of delivering Kate was dressed and in heels and out front of the hospital with the baby.  For all three babies Kate has chosen a Jenny Packman dress for the baby’s presentation.  Check out all of them here.

Lifestyle.  We have been Amazon Prime enthusiasts for many, many years.  With the new price hike I am looking elsewhere to see if I can get more for my money with another service.  Target also offers free two day shipping for their customers who use the red card and places like Walmart have free two day ship for orders over $35.  I am definitely looking around but check out this article on some other ways you may be able to qualify for a lower Amazon Prime rate.

Home.  Friday night I went on a super purge of my cabinets.  My friend Kayla was posting on her instasotry about nesting this week and I got inspired.  Big Daddy walked in the door and I was like grab a trash bag.  Sometimes you just have to sit down and do it when it’s not planned.

Beauty.  I love these eyeshadow grids.  Really easy to follow and create the perfect look.
