cute “dad” sneakers

I know this whole big chunky sneaker thing is in. I think it’s a dad sneaker, maybe not? Bottom line is that I’m not super cook enough to wear them, but then I laid my eyes on this pair. It’s a mild version of the dad sneaker in my opinion, and I can pull that off. The price is fabulous too!

White sneaker | $79

These do run SMALL, size up a WHOLE size!

Lululemon Dupes

Hey y’all! Who else here loves running around in their workout leggings probably more then they actually work out in them?! Pahaha! I am totally guilty! Normally if you see me legitimately anywhere besides work, I’m probably in them! Of course I work out in them too, but to me they are the easiest/most comfy thing to throw on and go!!

Black legging | $28

Comes in tons of colors

At this point in my life I’d say I’m a leggings cynosure. I’ve tried them all – and like most things in life, you get what you pay for! You used to catch me wanting a billion pairs of cute cheap leggings from target, forever or wherever I could get them. But that all changed the day I put on a pair of Lulus. I NEVER looked back! Not only do they feel amazing, they LAST, they don’t ride up when your actually working out & they make your booty look fabulous! … the only problem is that they are around $80. That doesn’t stop me, I probably have about 6 plain black pairs and a few other colors. To me they are worth the investment because they are something I constantly wear. The “align” pant is my favorite after the “wonder under” because it’s got a silky smooth feeling that’s light weight and allows your skin to breath while you work out, as opposed to the wonder under that’s thicker and feels very hot to me. (I usually bring these to Colorado when we go every year to walk around in + to wear under my ski pants! That’s how warm they are to me).

Anyway while Lululemon and Girlfriend Collective (the white set I’m wearing in the picture) are my favorite this whole post is about the black leggings pictured above that I recently found!!

You can find those by clicking HERE , I was pretty impressed when I tried these on. After hearing the reviews I was like okay, I gotta find out for myself! These are so similar to the texture of the align but a pinch thicker and they are not cropped! I haven’t worked out in them yet but have worn them running errands and I never found myself pulling them up or feeling like they were ridding either up or down! They are just as high waisted as the Lulus and come in a ton of colors! They are a MAJOR fraction of the price and long story short I bought two more pairs! At lululemon I normally wear a 6 and so I decided to go with a medium here which was perfect for me!!

If y’all have any questions I can always help!!

New Makeup Purchases

hey y’all! Sharing some new makeup purchases in the slider below + also highlighting my two new favorites!

– NEW FAVORITE PURCHASES –

Blush wand | $38

Loving this wand by Charlotte Tilbury! It’s basically a creme blush but has a shine to it so it leaves me looking more dewy then flat!! It’s the first blush I’ve found to do this and I honestly love it because I normally find it so hard to get a shine or “highlight” on my cheeks! This makes it fool-proof!

NYX Spirit Lip Gloss | $8

I grabbed this in the airport in NYC and fell in love with it! It’s always hard for me to find a nude type color that has a pinch of pink. Most nudes make me look washed out so a subtle pink to it helps! I haven’t stopped wearing it since I got it and feel like the color stays so well too!!!

Korean Beef Lettuce Wraps

It’s taco Tuesday y’all! Korean taco Tuesday to be exact! We love this recipe because it’s simple and easy thanks to the slow cooker! All you have to do is get home and throw the cucumber salad together! Great for lower carb days! Recipe below!

Ingredients

Slow Cooker Korean Beef

• 1.5-2 lb beef roast (I used chuck!that’s too fatty for some but it creates more flavor, Use a leaner cut if you wish! )

• 1/4 cup soy sauce

• 1/4 cup honey

• 1/4 cup brown sugar

• 2 tbsp rice vinegar

• 2 tbsp sesame oil

• 2 tbsp garlic chili paste

Sesame Cucumber Salad

• 3 tbsp sesame oil

• 4 tbsp rice vinegar

• 2 tsp sugar

• 3 cups cucumber cut into matchsticks

• 1 1/2 cups bean sprouts rinsed

• 3 cups radishes sliced thinly

To Serve

• 12-16 lettuce leaves I recommend bibb lettuce

• 6-8 tsp toasted sesame seeds

Instructions

Slow Cooker Korean Beef

• In the base of a slow cooker combine soy sauce, honey, brown sugar, vinegar, sesame oil and garlic chili paste.

• Cut beef in half lengthwise, toss in the sauce, and arrange the two pieces of beef side by side in the base of the slow cooker.

• Cook on LOWEST setting for 6-8 hours. *keep an eye on the beef during the last 2 hours of cooking. If sauce starts to reduce too much, add some water. (beef should have a dark exterior, but not burnt)

• Remove beef from slow cooker to a large bowl. Shred with two forks. Toss with some remaining cooking liquid to taste.

Sesame Cucumber Salad

• Combine the sesame oil, rice vinegar and sugar, mix until all sugar is dissolved.

• Toss with veggies.

• Serve immediately, sprinkled with sesame seeds.

*** we place the beef in the lettuce leaf and put the cucumber salad on top to keep low carb! Ryan needs something with a little more substance so he does add rice to his lettuce wrap. Rice first then layering the rest as I do!

Tonight we served with a salad & Trader Joe’s toasted sesame dressing! SO YUMMY!!
