Friday Roundup

Hey guys, happy Friday! Sorry I haven’t been posting much lately. My life is crazy busy right now. Work has picked up a ton and I’m in the process of buying a house, so between realtor appointments and house viewings, I really don’t have time for much else. On a positive note, the weather looks like it’s going to be great this weekend, I have a hair appointment tomorrow and I have a dinner reservation at Corso 32 with the BF (we made this reservation 2 months ago…that’s how long it took to get a 7 pm rezo on a Saturday night!).  I hope everyone’s weekend looks as promising as mine; in the meantime, here are my favourite Pins from the past week:

Monday night spinach salad

After a weekend of eating snacks, treats, pub food and beer I am craving a healthy and light dinner tonight. On nights like this I like to throw some chicken on the BBQ and make a fresh, tasty spinach salad. Here’s what I put in mine:

Ingredients

  • ¼ medium sized red onion (thinly sliced)
  • 2 bunches baby organic spinach, rinsed
  • 4 cups sliced strawberries
  • ½ cucumber, diced
  • 1/4 cup almond slices, toasted
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
  • 2 large chicken breast, grilled and cut
  • Blue cheese salad dressing

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, toss together all ingredients. Pour dressing over salad, toss and serve.
  2. For a different flavour combination, replace the almonds and blue cheese with pecans and goat cheese.
  3. Pairs nicely with a crisp white wine. I like Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio (see my review here)

Does anyone else have a go-to healthy meal they’d like to share? If so leave your recipe in the comments!

 

Bangs or no bangs?

So, I have a hair appointment on the 20th and I have yet to decide whether or not I want to get bangs. The majority of celebrities whose hair I admire do not have bangs, however I can’t pull off the middle part…I’ve tried, it doesn’t work.

No bangs
