What I’m Loving–May 2023
Happy Day, Reader Dearest!
What’s floating your boat this season?
It could be anything…
Maybe it’s a hobby?
A particular combination of salad ingredients?
An exercise routine?
A color combination?
An outfit worn #onrepeat?
An album, playlist or musician/group?
I’m always interested in what makes you tick, so I thought it’s only fair to share what’s got me by the throat this season.
I can’t even begin to explain. Here you go.
Here’s more about the backstory from the Smithsonian.
Yes, I AM trying to figure out where to catch it on tour!
Sweet Potato Bowl Breakfasts
I’ve been eating Sweet Potato Bowls at least 3 times a week lately… I bake up 3-5 sweet potatoes on the weekend to have them as needed through the week. I just scoop out the right amount and heat it in a skillet on the stove. (I’m a Luddite–no microwave.) If I’m feeling fancy, I’ll add a dash of vanilla extract and some pumpkin pie spice.
Some mornings I add apple, pecans and Craisins. Other mornings it’s Sunbutter, banana and coconut flakes. It’s super flexible depending on my mood and what’s in the fridge and cabinets!
Heinz Culinary Crunch
Especially on soft boiled eggs! Now my problem is finding it. I don’t know if they’ve discontinued it, but no one around me carries it and my special order is frustratingly slow. We’re halfway through our last jar. Sigh.
(There are two foods on my list. Can you tell I LOVE to eat at least as much as I love style?)
Especially flowers! BIG flowers. They make me smile. Big fake flowers make other people smile, too! I mean how can you not be cheered by patently fake enormous flowers?
Nude(ish) Face + Bright Lip
My go-to makeup look this season (Except for days I am making videos!) has been pretty minimal. A quick swipe with some tinted moisturizer, concealer, brows, mascara and a bright lip. It feels light and easy AND it’s wonderful to be wearing lipstick again!
How About You?
What are you crushing on this season? Is it a cyclical crush? Or something new? Do you change up your makeup routine for spring and summer? How is it different? What are you watching? What are you listening to? Do you like musical theatre? What’s your favorite breakfast? Now, what’s your favorite everyday breakfast? What are you doing to stay healthy?
Sally in St Paul
I am sort of obsessed with fruit parfait, a bright lipstick, skirts, and paper bead bracelets so far this summer. Your big “patently fake” floral pendants did indeed make me smile!
Those sound like FABULOUS obsessions, Sally!
