God Bless America, sweatpants are in this season! They're a thing... Sweatpants!?!?! But we aren't collectively calling them sweatpants, we're calling them 'joggers'. That makes them socially acceptable to gallivant around town in. I googled 'gallivant' just to be sure it meant what I thought it meant, and according to The Googs it means: to go around from one place to another in pursuit of pleasure or entertainment. Considering that I wore these out with my husband on a beer and wine run, I'd say I hit the nail on the head. How much more gallivant-y can you get? These are now my gallivanting pants. In all seriousness, these are actually really fun to play around with. I tried them on with almost everything in my closet. They actually look really cool and fun with heels and a leather jacket. Kendi from Kendi Everyday (if you're not reading her blog, you are doing yourself a disservice) wore them that way and they look fabulous. Then again, everything she wears looks fabulous. I kept it SUPER simple with a white denim jacket, a tank, and some sneakers. The gallivanting had to end at some point because this was on Sunday night and on Sunday nights we cut off all gallivanting at 8 PM and watch The Walking Dead. With our newly scavenged beer and wine. We're totally prepared for The Apocalypse

Are you going to jump on the jogger bandwagon this year? I do have to admit I was nervous to try them because I wasn't sure how they'd work in the hip/thigh/booty region on me. However, my husband assured me that my 'butt looks really good' in them and he's never wrong about how my butt looks. So even though they aren't the most slimming and elongating pants I've ever worn, I'm gonna embrace it, because who knows how long this trend will last? Really. Life is short.

New Photography Gear & Tips

  I think it's pretty safe to say that this blog has created a new love of photography in my life. I've always been a little shutterbug, but until I had a 'reason' to step up my photography game, I simply viewed it as a hobby. In the last year, it has become much more than that. When I purchased my camera, I wanted something I could grow with. I wasn't about to drop a ton of dough on a heavy duty Canon or Nikon when I'd never actually shot anything in manual mode and knew very little about exposure, composition, or editing. So I bought my Samsung (after doing a lot of research), which comes with an 18-55mm zoom lens. The kit lens is great, and I've taken some of my favorite pictures with it, but... I outgrew it. I could have gone out and purchased a new, more advanced camera system, but I still love my Samsung. I think it's a great 'blogging camera'. I opted for a new lens instead ( Samsung 45mm f/ 1.8 prime lens ). I could get pret

How I Pared Down My Makeup Collection

 I think it's safe to say that I have more makeup than the average woman. However, my collection is nowhere near 'professional makeup artist status', and it probably never will be. Especially considering that a few days ago, I got rid of more than half of my collection. And it felt good . See, a funny thing happens when you have too much makeup. You get tired of wearing makeup . Ironic, huh? There are simply too many choices and you can get bogged down, which results in a makeup slump. You end up wearing the same few products over and over again, never actually using all of that makeup that you amassed, which is kind of pointless, right? Wearing makeup and playing with makeup, it should be a fun experience, not a stressful one. When you open up those vanity drawers, it should feel like opening up a box of chocolates. It should be exciting. Not daunting. A makeup collection should be well edited and full of the things you love the most. The things you can'

How To Deep Clean An Electric (Coil) Cooktop

  It was time for me to do some deep cleaning in the kitchen. My cooktop was looking pretty, shall we say, loved . I wish I could say that it ended up like this because I've been crafting from-scratch gourmet meals five nights a week, or that I've been experimenting with exciting new recipes, but in reality, this cooktop has been servicing Joel and I with lots of coffee kettle boiling, egg scrambling, and the occasional batch of Ramen noodles.  On a day-to-day basis, when I'm done cooking, I give the surface a good wipe down, and I try to catch spills as they happen, but in preparation for this post, I let things get a little bit dirtier than usual. You've gotta have a good before picture, right? Since it's a black cooktop, and it hides more than a white or stainless one, I had to let it get pretty dirty in order for things to show up in photos. Oh, the sacrifice. So, let's have a look shall we? So step one in cleaning your cooktop, is to
