Lentil, Feta and Bruschetta Spread


My girlfriend Lacey told me about this gem. The easiest and most delicious appetizer (or even meal).
All you need is to combine one package of the following goodies from Trader Joe’s:

Crumbled Feta Cheese
Steamed Lentils
Fresh Bruschetta Sauce

Now dip some pita chips and enjoy!  Seriously mouth watering and my new go-to appetizer for parties. Some people on IG suggested adding some chicken and tossing it in a pita for a meal.

Seychelles ‘So Far Away” Leather Sandal

sofaraw9s1LEOA few months back, after a loooong day in high heels, my friend Cassaundra (of the Blue Closet) let me borrow these shoes to give my feet a rest.  So so comfortable! I knew I had to have a pair for myself–now I want every color and style.  I got mine at Nordstrom, here. I would normally order a 5.5 or 6 in this style of a sandal but the 5 actually ended up fitting perfectly, so they run just a little bit big.

Fossil Stella Leather Watch

I stepped into Fossil the other day with no agenda–just to browse.  And I stumbled on this beauty.  It’s even more lovely on! It took every ounce of self control I had to not buy it on the spot.  But you bet it made my wish-list!  And $135 is a great price for a nice watch.  Plus you can switch out the wrist bands.

My “Everyday” J.Crew Favs

I stepped into J.Crew the other day to make a return and I got sucked in. They were having one of those surprise sales where the entire store is 25% off and then another 20% off on top of that–the math confuses me, but I know thats a pretty great discount.  So I treated myself to a few wardrobe staples. This Spring I have a goal of sprucing up my Mom-uniform with some accessories. I still want to be comfy, so jeans and a t-shirt it will be–but perhaps with a bit of pizazz like a bauble necklace or a fun hat.

These shirts–I’m obsessed. They are linen and insanely soft.  And they hand loosely while still giving some shape (i don’t like my shirts to hug).
