Life Lately

There is nothing I love to start a blog post with more than, “Happy Friday!” This week was a great one [one of my bridesmaids was in town and stayed with me for a few days] but the beginnings of the month are always exhausting! Accounting, goal setting and website analytics are not my BFF but they all want to date me the first week of the month. :/

I thought I would share a few photos to wrap up the past month and answer any questions I was getting about the products listed! FullSizeRender_1

Headboard: One Kings Lane | Pillow: Arianna Belle

FullSizeRenderMask: Tata Harper

I’m not a mask girl. I don’t really ever see a difference, except maybe I break out 2 days later. So I hold a grudge. This is the one mask that doesn’t break me out but changes the texture of my skin within 20 minutes. I’m not sure what causes that [magic?] but I use this every Sunday night to help me start my week off right! This little jar has also lasted me two years, so the price is definitely worth it for me!


Paul LOVES breakfast. I mean he would eat it breakfast, lunch and dinner [and I’m over here like, “Uhhh when do we get chips and queso?”]. I wanted to try to learn to make one he loved and after two years of trying I think I got it down! If you love breakfast [or your beau does] here is what I did:

1. Brown Sugar Bacon

[Lay bacon on parchment paper on a baking sheet, pour brown sugar on bacon, red pepper flakes and cayenne pepper! I put bacon in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes.]

2. Sautéed Cherry Tomatoes

Sautee cherry tomatoes with 1 tbs of olive oil, a bit of minced garlic, sea salt and cracked pepper

3. Avocado Toast

I used gluten free bread with mashed avocado and lemon juice

4. Eggs Any Style

I wore this to my focus group to meet some of the Chronicles of Frivolity readers! It was the greatest night getting to meet some of y’all, sipping mambo taxis and learning what you want on the site! 🙂

    That breakfast looks amazing! I have never thought to make tomatoes with breakfast (I’ve used salsa and ketchup), but this is such smart way to get some healthy veggies and indulge the meat lover side with that yummy bacon and eggs 🙂

    I tried Tata Harper products and was so excited….but I was SO totally underwhelmed :(. I then tried to leave my honest feedback on her products at her website – and within 5 minutes, my reviews were immediately removed bc they weren’t 5 stars. I then tried to leave another review and again, it posted, then was immediately removed. This may tell you something about their integrity…so just fyi. I don’t trust, at all, companies who only allow positive reviews. Beware bc they clearly have something to hide there….

      Oh no!! That is so sad to hear! 🙁 I will say their brightening serum didn’t work for my skin, but this mask is the only other product I’ve tried and is definitely holy grail for me. I’ve never come in contact with their Pr reps but if I do I will for sure bring that to their attention! I appreciate your feedback!
