Fashion Friday: PINK!

It has been a while, so I thought it would be a good week to link up with Kori at Blonde Episodes for Fashion Friday!

it is all about the PINK today (duh!)

I am loving all of the subtle pops of pink (a blazer, shirt, or shoes!)  Have a great weekend everyone!

Recipe: Salmon and Quinoa Salad

I have started to kick the diet into high gear, which means I have to try to cook MUCH healthier/lighter.  This is something I have tweaked over the last couple of years and it has become a go-to favorite of mine.  I try to make enough for leftovers since it's so healthy!

Salmon Filet (I use enough for four servings)
Light olive oil margarine
Salt to taste
Dill to taste
1/2 Lemon

-Preheat oven to 325
-Cover salmon with two teaspoons or so of margarine
-Sprinkle with a pinch of salt, juice of half a lemon and dill (I like a lot of dill)
-Bake for 25 minutes in a Pyrex dish

Quinoa Salad
1 cup cooked quinoa
3 teaspoons olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Parsley (eyeball, taste)
Feta Cheese (one handful)
Five diced scallions

-Combine quinoa with olive oil, salt and pepper and parsley and stir
-Add in feta and scallions and stir again
-Squeeze in juice of other half of lemon and give a final stir

This is a great summertime meal or when you are in a hurry because it's quick and nutritious! Enjoy :)

Beauty Faves

I haven't been fueling my beauty product junkie habit lately due to a small addition to our family, but I still am getting my hands on what I can when I can (got to do, what you got to do, right?!)

Goody No Slip Headband - These really don't slip!  I wear these when I work out (and a lot of the rest of the time too) and they come in cute colors (my pack had pink, grey and brown) and stay in place!  They cost $5ish for a three pack.

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towlettes - I have tried a lot of makeup removers, mainly for eye make up.  I was using Almay forever but discovered these little goodies on a vacation and haven't stopped using them since.  

Revlon Photofinish Airbrush Foundation - I usually avoid drugstore foundation because you can't try it on, but this is one exception.  The mousse texture makes it go on light and makes it much easier to blend in.  The bottle also made it easy to choose the correct color in Target.

You can get them all at Target!

JCrew Love

Have you all been to JCrew lately?  I popped in the other day and found so many goodies!  They were disappointing me a lot recently but their prices were better and they seemed to go back to their preppier roots.  Here are some of the goodies I have my eye on...

This is just a few!  Anything at the Crew you have liked lately?

This Week in Pictures...

Happy Monday!  This week was BUSY!  It started off super cold and ended up in the 80's!

Top to Bottom:  My girls on a walk, Maggie and her new lobster toy, playing outside in our garden, wearing a star wrap on a chilly walk, my little guy's many faces, with Alexa in LA, fire/candlelight while the power was out.

Have a great week everyone!
