Accessories

  • 1 (15 ounce) can Organic Garbanzo Beans, rinsed and drained (chickpeas)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup creamy almond butter (just almonds + salt)
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup (or sub honey)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup small wild frozen blueberries OR 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips, plus 2 tablespoons for sprinkling on top (dairy-free, if desired)

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 12 cup muffin tin with 10 muffin liners (we’re only making 10 muffins) and spray the inside of each liner with nonstick cooking spray so that the liners do not stick to the muffins — this is important.


Step 2

Place chickpeas and 1 egg in the bowl of a food processor or high powered blender and process until beans are well blended. Add two other eggs, peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla, baking powder and salt and process again until smooth. Fold in ⅓ cup chocolate chips.

Step 3

Divide batter evenly among muffin cups. Sprinkle remaining chocolate chips evenly among the tops of each muffin batter. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the muffins comes out clean. Place on a wire rack to cool for 10 minutes, then remove muffins from tin and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

3 Tips To Enhance Your Lashes

1. Use a sensitive eye makeup removing cleanser, some makeup removers are very harsh on your eyes!

2. Apply GrandeLASH-MD Lash Enhancing Serum on each lash line, once a day and GrandeBROW Brow Enhancing Serum on each brow once a day. 

3. Stay consistent – it takes 4-6 weeks of consistent GrandeLASH-MD use to start seeing results, and 6-8 weeks of consistent GrandeBROW use to start seeing results. 

Available at Ulta.com or click on the images below to shop.

When we lived in LA, I religiously went to get lash extensions every 6 weeks. I would get a sitter and drive an hour to West Hollywood and pray for a parking spot. Then, I would lay down for 2 hours and pray the stinky glue wouldn’t get into my eyes, which would happen on occasion and my eyes would burn! After two hours, I’d have full, long lashes. Sadly, this didn’t last long especially if I had allergies and my eyes would tear up or itch. I knew eventually that I needed to enhance my own natural lashes, that became so short as a result of the stress of the extensions. Yes, lash extensions can hurt your natural lashes.

Enter the lash serum from Grande Cosmetics, GrandeLASH-MD Lash Enhancing Serum. I saw a blogger friend that I trusted use it and I knew I had to try it. I was hooked.

Why I love GrandeLASH-MD, it’s a one swipe wonder! It helps promote the appearance of naturally longer, thicker looking lashes. It is water based so it’s suitable to use with contacts and lash extensions. And it is Ophthalmologist tested and cruelty free.

Have you tried it?

Topiaries (they come in a set of 2)

I don’t know about you, but I have scored quite a few notable Amazon buys lately. One of which I’d like to share today. I must confess, I used to have a green thumb, but not lately. I’m getting ready for the kids to go back to school in two weeks, we have a business to run and I have zero time to water or trim so artificial for the win!

These topiaries come in a set of 2, have to be assembled (just attach both sides) and look stunning and real! Reid even complimented me on how well these have held up and give our back yard a little feel of Tuscany with zero work.

I love a house that is full of books. 

But it can also be a clutter disaster.  Therefore, I try not to waste our time and storage space on junk books.  I think of our library as I do our pantry.  If there is no nutritional value, don’t eat it.  If the story lacks good content, don’t bother.  Here is my top six list of our favorite books for Levi.

1)    Good Night Moon, by Margaret Wise Brown

2)    Caps For Sale, by Esphyr Slobodkina

3)    Little Bunny Follows His Nose, by Katherine Howard

4)    Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site, by Sherri Duskey Rinker & Tom Lichtenheld

5)    Henny Penny, by Paul Galdone

6) Corduroy, by Don Freeman

Here is what I look for in a good book to read

1)    Plot.  Yes, even a book for toddlers should have a plot.

2)    Repetition.  It is important at this age.  Find books that rhyme, sing, or repeat phrases.  I like to read in funny voices and it makes him laugh.

3)    Illustrations.  I’m a sucker for great graphics and Levi loves pointing out objects he can identify.  Like the burch in Good Night Moon and Goodnight and the teddy bear in Goodnight Construction Site.  These two stories are especially genius.

As I often say, the days are long, but the years are short.  If your kids are already past the toddler stage, you can catch up the snuggle time with grand kids.

Have a lovely weekend,

XO

I don’t love back to school frenzy but I secretly love all the prep and new gear! The kids share this joy with me. I bought the kids new Trapper Keepers, backpacks and jeans from Walmart. I had a blast from the past when I bought the Trapper Keepers home. I used to have one in junior high. Such good memories staying organized and “cool.” Now, my kids get to experience it.

See my picks below for starting off the year right:
