Printed Pants.

I’ve been obsessing over, bold print pants! They are such a fun way to spruce up your spring wardrobe. I have been a little intimidated by the print pants but I have seen tons of cute ways to wear them that are more subtle by pairing with a solid top.

Today will be Awesome!

Because I am about to run my second half marathon!!! Wooohooo!!! While I would never do a full, I’m so so thrilled for this year’s marathon to try to beat my time from last year! Last year I averaged 11 minute miles pretty much the whole way and came in a 2:32 — Not bad for not training at all. We will see how this Saturday’s race goes! 🙂

Panini Party.

Good sandwiches aren’t just for meat lovers. Ever since I bought my panini maker last year I have been beyond obsessed with making paninis for dinner every night.  It’s time to think beyond hot pastrami and grilled chicken. When it comes to sandwich fixings, you can put almost every type of topping imaginable that is available in your fridge. Everything to me is better in sandwich form including vegetables and different types of cheese. 

My favorite vegetable panini is loaded with good for you ingredients, it feels you up but doesn’t leave you feeling miserably full. I use the 100 calories sandwich thins, spinach, pepper jack cheese, turkey, peppers, avocado and mushrooms. The best part is avocado. It only takes minutes to make and it is delicious!

I always make different easy sides to go along with the panini too. The top picture is tomato mozzarella cheese and balsamic vinaigrette. The bottom picture side is avocado, cottage cheese, corn, black beans and tomato. 

Natural Wave.

1.  On freshly washed hair, towel dry your hair but DON’T brush it out.  If your hair has no natural curl, brushing it will only make it more straight.  Instead just shake it out or run your fingers through it.
2.  Apply curl mousse to the ends, scrunching it up as you apply.  

3.  Blow dry your hair with a diffuser attachment on the end.

5.  Using a 1/2 inch -1 inch curling iron, wrap your hair around the outside of the barrel instead of clamping it in.  This will create a looser wave.
