Another Recipe Roundup

Good morning my friends! While I sit here and sip my tea, let’s recap what I have been making and eating these last few days. I’m linking up with Jen over at Peas and Crayons to bring you my What I Ate Wednesday.

First and foremost I love starting my day with a green smoothie right now.

I feel good after I have it, like I just infused my body with tons of vitamins.

My  recipe as you can see from above is so easy. Just throw all those ingredients in the blender and blend. It’s normally done in less than three minutes and I drink it while I’m getting ready. Starting the day off on the right foot and giving the metabolism a great jump start.

Above are the donuts that I promised I would give you the recipe. The recipe is here. I didn’t take the time to roll them out and make  actual donuts, I just made little munchkins. I am going to try baking them next time, to make them healthier and to also cut down on my apartment smelling for three days after!  photo 4

Next up, Chinese food last Friday for date night. The boyfriend and I found a place near us called All Seasons Table. It was so good, I can’t wait to go back. Normally we get take out and it is the typical greasy food, but this time the boyfriend put a little effort into finding a place for us (which I wasn’t willing to do) and it really paid off. The food isn’t greasy, the stuff is very fresh and it is an actual restaurant. The place is large and it was packed, a great sign that they serve fantastic food. We didn’t get dessert there though, the boyfriend and I were stuffed so we went home. On the way he wanted to stop and get some apple juice so we swung into a small mart.

So those are my eats and a few recipes.

Do you like Chinese? I love it, I also love Sushi as well!

 

October Stitch Fix Review

Finally a Stitch Fix where I kept more than one item! I’m so excited that I added new pieces to my wardrobe. I’m linking up with Becky over at Olives n Wine to bring you my new threds for a Treat Yourself Tuesday.

What is Stitch Fix?

When you sign up for Stitch Fix  you get your very own stylist that handpicks a “Fix” for you with five clothing items and/or accessories that are unique to your taste, budget and lifestyle. To pick out these items she/he looks at an extensive profile you filled out to make sure your unique tastes, sizes and wants are taken into account. You have 3 days to decide if you are going to keep any of the items in your Fix that was mailed for free right to your door. You can buy whatever you like (or nothing) and return the rest, free of charge in their postage paid envelope. There is a $20 styling fee, but if you purchase any of the items in your Fix, it’s credited back to you. You can also leave notes on specific fixes, so if you want a fix for your vacation coming up you can leave that note for your stylist and she/he will include pieces to accommodate your needs. I’ve gotten the most compliments on items that I have gotten from this service.

You can sign up for a fix here and get a one time fix or sign up for how ever many you want. My friend is so hooked she gets one every two weeks!

Abrianna Long Sleeve Knit Cardigan

photo 1

The second I saw this I took it out of the box and put it on. I love the color, I love the feel and I love the way it hangs off my body. I have never found a cardigan that fits so well as this one. The sleeves are perfect, with the length being spot on and it being roomy enough to feel like a comfortable sweatshirt but looking nice enough to wear to work. The tags came off this the second I saw it, it was the best thing I think I have gotten so far.

I can wear this with a t shirt and jeans like above or make it dressy with a skirt or cute dress. I love how versatile it is.

Verdict. Kept.

Marlena Abstract Print Tab Sleeve Blouse

photo 2 I was intrigued when I saw this shirt, I liked the patterns colors but I wasn’t sold on the pattern. I also was a tad unsure on the material as really flowy material doesn’t always flatter my body.

When I tried it on the first thing out of the boyfriends mouth was “that looks like something my grandma would wear”. I went to look in the mirror and had to agree that it didn’t flatter me. It hit the chest weird to make my look really saggy and hung off my body in an unflattering light.

Also on, the pattern looked like a snake print paisley.

Verdict. Sent Back.

Torrance Lace Detailed Sleeveless Blouse

This picture is a tad fuzzy, but I was getting annoyed at the boyfriend because he wouldn’t stand up to take my pictures and I had a bunch up the nose pictures. I really liked this shirt, it is a silky material with a lace top in the front. I loved how it hung off me and I loved how it was so versatile.

I can wear this with a skirt and cardigan when I go to work and I can pair it with jeans for a night  out with the boyfriend when we go to bars. It was a perfect top to cross both occasions.

Verdict. Kept.

Francesca Faux Wrap Dress

When I took this dress out in the office (I get my fixes sent to the office so I can always get them) all the ladies loved it. I wasn’t 100% sure I liked it though, the color wasn’t something I really normally go for but the material was so soft.

It came down to when I tried it on. It hugged my very curvy body perfectly, and made me feel like I was being hugged. The material is so light but it isn’t freezing in the fall. The boyfriend said he liked it and that is a home run in my book since he normally says “looks fine” I’m excited to add a new dress to my wardrobe.

Verdict. Kept

Item 5

I don’t like scarfs that aren’t pashmina, I always try to branch out but when I saw this one I hated it. Sadly I forgot to take a picture because I put it in the return envelop right after I tried it on.

Verdict. Sent Back

 

I really suggest trying Stitch Fix, it is only $20 to try it once and you will probably end up loving it like I do. Trying things on in your own home with your own things and your own accessories really gives you an idea if you are going to keep it or not. I always wear the items that I have kept from here and the ones I got in January have held up so well so far. In comparison the items I get from places like Target already have holes in them.
