I am so excited, because I'm leaving the office early to head over to LA's Style Fashion Week at the Staples Center in downtown! I've only been downtown a couple times since I moved last year, and I could not be more excited for this opportunity! My friend Jackie of JAKIMAC is a local jewelry designer and she got us some VIP tickets for a night of full of all things fashion.
It's going to be a long night so I had to make sure I packed just enough to get me through the evening! If you see below, I put together a list of my must-haves for a night out watching the runwway!
I've been eyeing my INGRID wedges all season just waiting for the perfect opportunity to wear them out! I'm usually a flats kind of girl, but for special occassions, wedges are my favorite. I love that the INGRID wedges have a little strap over the ankle, to make these really stand out. I chose to pair them with a pair of harem pants, and since I'm at the office all day, I wore a more casual look for daytime, and plan on switching into my heels and blazer a little later on in the evening. With one pair of pants, and a couple tops, I put together three different outfits with three different pairs of Blowfish Shoes. #1 is more of a casual day time look featuring the DAME, #2 is totally office ready featuring the BAEZ and #3 featuring the INGRID is a bit fancier, perfect for a night out on the town! Woo!
So, I just signed up for a CSA box from Farm Fresh to You and I am in love. Seriously. It's the best!
If you're unfamiliar with what a CSA box is, that stands for community supported agriculture and it comes in the form of a box full of local produce, delivered right to your doorstep. I like to imagine little farmer elves dancing by in the night, because when I open my front door at 8am... VOILA, veggies. It never ceases to amaze me. I opt for the small veggies only box, because I don't eat a whole lot of fruit aside from my dried prunes now that figs and peaches are past their prime. I promise I'm not 85 years old, I just really love prunes.
My favorite thing about the CSA box is it really eliminates a lot of the thinking required for figuring out how to feed yourself. I usually supplement with some eggs, cheese and bread and it's totally enough food for the week. Salads for lunch, roasted veggies for dinner... you get the idea. Last week I got a pumpkin in my box and went totally wild. I prepared and froze a week's worth of meals and I am still impressed with myself. I whipped up stew, pumpkin lasagna (and seeds!), buffalo cauliflower, and kale frittatas - then double wrapped individual meal portions in aluminum foil and popped them in the freezer for this week! WHAT?! Real, live, responsible adult, capable of cooking, and did I mention I'm single? Probably goes without saying, given how much vegetables and premade frozen dinners excite me.
Anyways... now that it's fall I am really embracing spending time at home with the contents of my CSA box. No shame. Because there's really nothing better than throwing on a pair of super thick socks, a really good album and cooking up some warm soup. (Smells of pumpkin wafting through the air...) Am I right?
Hi friends!! So I was trying to find an alternative to eating pasta noodles with spaghetti sauce. As I was researching, I found spaghetti squash but the process took a bit long for my liking(baking ithe squash in the oven for an hour, then scraping the insides with a fork). Then I stumbled on a recipe for zucchini noodles! Not only were they really easy to make, it took me no more than 15 minutes.
With 1 and 8 women now developing invasive breast cancer within their lifetime, it's safe to say, we all have some association with the disease. Whether it's a family member, or a friend of a friend, it's affecting all of us and it's scary.
For me personally, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010. She underwent surgery for a double mastectomy and lymph node removal, chemotherapy as well as radiation, and now, has been cancer-free for almost a year. During the course of my mom's treatment, I was living hundreds of miles away, but her journey to recovery still had a profound effect on me. Her bravery was inspiring, and her struggle, something I wanted to do everything in my power to avoid myself. It was the impetus I needed to take charge of my own health. I am aware of the risks with taking birth control pills, getting regular breast exams, and eating a healthy diet.
Whether you are personally affected by the disease or not, it's so important to raise awareness and understanding. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Blowfish is hosting a Think Pink campaign, to encourage women to think about the risks, the women who have fought for our lives, and what we can do to prevent or at least detect breast cancer in the early stages. Raising awareness, and starting a discussion is a sure way to educate women on the various ways they can 'Think Pink' and keep healthy!
