Shoe Find Du Jour 5.27.12

Personally, I am not a fan of Bebe. It is usually just not my style at all. However I was walking along 3rd Avenue and something grabbed my attention.

A pair of butt kicking gold wedges, I didn't even look up to see what store it was because I fell in love in .2 seconds. Ran in and realized it was Bebe. I was shocked. Anyway, grabbed them and the matching flats and even more shocking they had my size! I am a small size 5.

These shoes remind me of Tom Ford for Gucci back in the day. Around 2002 or so (I believe, I could be wrong), Some of my favorite shoes ever made. Tom Ford is a god.

Anyway, I would suggest checking Bebe out for these! Super hot and comfortable. I can't wait to rock them!

Nails Du Jour 5.26.12

Current manicure is Zoya nailpolish in "Pippa" and Deborah Lippmann nailpolish in "Shake Your Groove Thing". Love it, so fun, bright and summery with a splash on sparkle.

Zoya Pippa took three coats to cover opaquely but after looks beautiful and creamy. Formula is a touch streaky, three coats solves that though.

Deborah Lippmann Shake Your Groovedl this is one coat of sparkles. You can really build up opacity easily as well. One of my very favorites I own. I hear Milani has a great dupe for this.

What's on your nails?

Quick Hello, a healthy recipe+ a little haul 5.15.12

Hola Everyone-

I missed you all. I am finally settling into my new apartment. I will share some photos when it is in more of a normal state. I am still organizing and cleaning. Why whenever I am about to move I completely forget the hell that moving is?

Anyway, I posted on instagram photos of my dinner I was making and I got a ton of questions on the recipe. It is SO easy and SO healthy and SO tasty so I thought I would share with you guys (that was a lot of SO's).

 Recipe for Marinade:
Blend all in a food processor- mine of choice is Cuisnart. I love that thing!
- Half a bunch of Italian or flat leaf parsley
- 4-5 cloves of Garlic (More if you like it super garlic-y, or less if you aren't a garlic freak like me!)
- 3 pinches of Kosher Sea Salt
- 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- Squirt of Lime juice

- Marinate your chicken breasts for up to 6 hours. I throw them in a plastic bag with the marinade in the morning and when I get home from work they are ready to go.
- Use a grill pan and throw on the chicken, no need for oil as it is already in the marinade.
- 5-6 minutes on each side to get nice good charred grill lines.


SO easy, tasty and very healthy.

I hope you try it out and enjoy! Definitely let me know, I would love to hear!
