These are a few of my favorite things…

I love Sundays! I feel such a sense of renewal. It’s a day to take your time waking up and enjoy some fresh air! Many are obsessed with football games and I regret to inform you that I could careless. Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy the occasional beer, wings, and game. I just don’t build my Sunday Fundays around it. I guess I’m just your average girly-girl.

So here are a few of my little moments and things that I love on any given Sunday…

I can’t think of a better way to wake up on a Sunday! Plus I love the pumpkin they draw on my latte! Check out Gelateria Tavolini in downtown St. Louis, MO.

Minimal Makeup and glowing skin is my general rule to Sunday. Today I spritzed a hint of CHANEL’S “Mademoiselle” onto my scarf. My Sunday attire was inspired by the lovely CHANEL polish colors! I love EcoTools Sheer Finish Kabuki for giving my foundation an airbrushed finish. Blissoma’s “Intense Hydration Tonique” is perfect for setting my makeup and giving me that extra bit of moisture I am looking for.

disheveled braids

Who needs perfect hair all the time? Not me! For this quick and easy style I created two French braids in an asymmetrical fashion on both sides. I then intertwined the braids when they reached my neck to create one. Need added texture? Try a bit of Davines Sea Salt Spray!

My main man Charlie and I love cuddling up and posting away! 🙂

Pack for a picnic

The weather is more beautiful each day. Call a few girlfriends and have a picnic in the park. Be sure to wear your SPF and a big floppy hat.

Sunday Funday

My Sundays are all about getting organized. It’s such a great way to ease into Monday! My hardwood floors are now sparkling , my mountain of laundry is clean, and The Oz Monster has been walked. Now for my reward! A smoothie!

 
INGREDIENTS:

8oz Silk Vanilla soymilk

4oz Market Pantry tropical blend frozen fruit (pineapple, banana, mango, & peach)

1 Tablespoon peanut butter

The truth about soymilk—>http://silksoymilk.com/content/myths
Question: “Is frozen fruit as healthy for you as fresh fruit?”

Answer: For the most part, yes.

“With shipping and storage, fresh fruit can often sit around for as long as two weeks before it hits your supermarket,” says Suzanne Henson, RD, director of the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s EatRight Weight Management Program. “During that time, it can lose a lot of its nutrients, especially vitamin C.”

In contrast, frozen fruit is often picked and frozen at the peak of freshness. It’s also a better choice for concocting smoothies. But watch out for frozen fruits in syrup — it packs extra calories.

Originally published in Fitness magazine, May 2006.

  Dr. Richard Mattes, a professor of nutrition at Purdue University, says, “A  tablespoon or two of peanut butter is all it takes to net a world of benefits  for both the heart and the waistline.”
