Weekend Recap




My weekend was consumed by one, Mr. Francis J. Underwood. I'm sad to report that I was pretty disappointed by season three. As a die hard fan of the show, I know what it's capable of. Seeing the direction it took, and having it not work out was such a bummer. Obviously I still watched the whole thing, and love me some icey Claire Underwood more than ever, but there was much to be desired. Sigh.



We popped by the mall Saturday afternoon, and I fell in love with two new fragrances. Ladies brace yourselves, as these are not impulse buys at all, but they are signature scent/investment worthy. Tom Ford's Mandarino de Amalfi is bright, citrusy, and actually unique. If you like Tory Burch's fragrance, I highly suggest this one. The Tom Ford manager at Neiman's was VERY nice and sent me home with a huge sample (helps when your boyfriend spends a little money with her in men's wallets but I digress). If you are more a fan of florals, Aerin's Rose de Grasse is superb. The scent is so light and elegant, it can make even me feel classy. Who knew?




I actually took time to prep breakfast for the week and made Skinny Western Omelet Muffins. There were super simple and I used ingredients I already had in my fridge. A serving is two, but I'll stick to one and a green smoothie this week.


I hope you all had a great weekend, and have as good a Monday as your can because let's be honest: Mondays blow.

    1. I liked some parts of it, but overall it pales in comparison to the first two seasons. Hope you like the new scents!

  2. How long do those muffins last? Do you freeze them then pop them in the microwave or are they okay in the fridge?

    1. I just refrigerate them, and then nuke it in the morning. They will last a few day in the fridge. I have seen recipes that talk about freezing them, but I don't have room in my freezer.

  3. I love recipes that are already in my fridge! I've already seen season 1 & 2 of HOC but I'm now rewatching it with my boyfriend from the start. Sad to hear it was disappointing.

    1. It was just really different from the other two. They do some good character development and it really is all about Frank & Claire this season, which in a way was good.
