One. Pinterest Wins
I have had my fair share of flops while trying out Pinterest recipes. Have you searched the #nailedit or googled Pinterest fails? Do it now if you want a good laugh and to waste an hour of your life (worth it). Here are few that got me good.
Anyways, occasionally the Pinterest stars align and something turns out good..really good in these cases. This past weekend I tried out these watermelon salad and potato salad recipes I pinned and was blown away!
I do not like potato salad. Correction, I get violently ill thinking of the yellow mush potato salad that's in a grocery store deli case. But this warm potato salad with mustard vinaigrette was stupid good.
Does anyone else think that watermelon salads are becoming the next kale or quinoa craze? I've seen them everywhere. But it's for good reason because it is delicious. The best way I can describe this recipe is interestingly delicious. The flavors are so unique that it either has to be amazing or disgusting...and it's amazing! I will be making this all summer.
Two. Blacklight Zumba
After taking about a 3 week hiatus from Zumba (out of sheer laziness) I jumped back on the train after seeing a post that the night's class was a "blacklight dance party". It was so fun! A great way to mix up the normal workout. I quickly snapped this pic during a break.
Three. Blogger Love
The Daily Tay is one of my favorite blogs to read and she captured my thoughts perfectly this week with her post on the Duggar scandal. I will just say that they have given me the heebie jeebies from the beginning.
Lately, I have had a serious case of the travel bug. I could spend hours reading Casey's blog Land of Marvels (I certainly have). Check out her posts on the Secrets of Booking Travel Accommodations and the post that has me convinced I need to go to Newport, RI.
I'll go ahead and pat my own back too in case you missed my posts on blackberry yogurt dog treats or my version of Ina Garten's zucchini and cheese tart :)
Four. Charcoal Mask
Anyone else feel the rise in humidity lately? Some days it feels like a sauna out. At the end of the day it's so nice to wash all the makeup off your face. I love using this Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask. I have used Glamglow in the past and I honestly like this mask better, ahem, and it's half the price. Besides feeling squeaky clean after you get to scare your dogs by looking like this...
Five. New Blog Design
I'm so excited to share that (hopefully) by next week this blog space will be sporting a new look. I've been working with the incredibly talented Sarah from Venus Trapped in Mars and giddy about showing you all!
As always I'm linking up today with September Farm, Life in Leggings, Meet @ The Barre, and High Five for Friday.
What are you weekend plans?
