Here’s what I’m loving in February – tell me your favorites below!

Skillet pizzas, but in a different way! Instead of the cast iron skillet method (which is the best, but hello – hot as heck and requires a little more hands-on time which I so don’t have right now), I’ve been using a regular nonstick or stainless skillet and my go-to dough. Throw a bit of oil in the skillet while it’s over high heat. Throw in the dough and cook until bubbles form (think pancake-like) then flip the dough and build your pizza. Finish it in the oven, anywhere from 350 to 450 degrees until the cheese is melty, like around ten-ish minutes. This means no pizza peel nightmares! Above is my cheeseburger pizza from a pizza class I taught last week. So good.

La Croix’s new pineapple strawberry flavor. I found it at Target and it’s to die for.

PARENTHOOD! Gah. I’m so sad I didn’t get into it sooner but I blew threw every episode in two weeks. My love knows no bounds. It quite possibly might be my favorite show of ALL time, which is huge for the TV junkie that I am. I couldn’t even tell you who my favorite character is because I loved them all for so many reasons. The writers knocked it out of the park with that. I feel like they covered so many different personalities and I have no idea HOW they did it so brilliantly!

Hi Feb! Ruary. Whomp whomp.

Real life: it’s like negative 54 degrees here and we are still hibernating. We’ve ventured out a few more times, I’ve had some work commitments out of the house and some events that required (or, well, warranted) more makeup that the nothing that I’ve been slathering on my face these last two months. I’m feeling more normal! Not totally back at it, but getting there.

I am still loving, like L O V I N G the philosophy fresh cream scent in everything. Everything! I’ve even been layering it a bit with my bond no. 9 in west side and OMG. Heavenly. Share, because I love knowing this – what is your signature scent???

The kenra blow dry spray has been great, even if I only have blown my hair dry a handful of times. It really DOES shorten blow dry time for me. And with how dry my hair has been in the cold? Macadamia deep repair masque. Every single time. Do you have a hair mask/crazy thick conditioner you love? Please tell.

On to this month’s stuff! read more
