I hope you had a lovely Easter! This weekend, we had a little bit of fun in the sun. We don’t have a backyard in our townhouse, just a garden patio, so I grabbed a blanket , a bucket of water and let the baby splash his toys like crazy on our front lawn. We also had some friends and family over for Easter on Sunday, ran out of propane and served brunch waaaaay too late. Thank God for Champagne! Even the baby partied; he refused to nap and was absolutely fascinated with the other little ones.
The holiday is behind us but this week kicks off the Scottsdale Culinary Festival! There are loads of events and parties to go to this week so if you’re not sure what to wear, check out this post on what to wear to the Scottsdale Culinary Festival. For The Great Arizona Picnic, which I think we’ll be checking out this year, try a crop top. It’s going to be hot and it’s one of this spring’s cutest trends!
I’m in still in spring cleaning mode and this article has a few great tips. Finding a “home” for everything and trying to minimize
all my crap too much stuff is where I’m currently struggling. I’m also loving this article debunking many of the myths Food Babe perpetuates. I’m not one to argue or typically take a stand on organic vs. not, GMOs, vaccines, etc. but what drives me absolutely bananas is how things go viral that have no scientific backing. I could never, ever, run a story in the magazine that cites Wikipedia, or someone with a Google degree. And as a journalist, it makes me cringe when I see people sharing posts from websites with crazy names like “natural-food-is-the-best.org” (I made that up. If it’s real, that’s entirely coincidental.) It’s just plain scary and dangerous how much of a following people can get stirring up controversy on a subject matter they know nothing about. Peer reviewed journals are not a conspiracy. Cite a study that hasn’t been debunked (and has more than 50 participants). Even a simple review of the difference between correlation and causation would really clear up so many fallacies people believe.
Ok. Enough about that. Today, I’m crushing on some super cheap and cute style items, like this beautiful feather hair piece under $5! This pretty floral skater skirt under $15, this set of gold midi rings (also under $10) and this Mac Pro lipstick in Fleshpot. Hooray for pretty spring treats for under $20!
How was your Easter weekend?
