March Favorites: Food + Fun.
My blush Cuyana tote. I’ve wanted a Cuyana bag since last fall, but then got word that PASTELS (!!!) would be the spring shades and decided to wait. I signed up on the email list and ordered the blush tote as soon as they came out and oh my word, I love this. I might buy something (or use cardboard) to stuff the bottom so it’s not as flimsy. But this.is.gorgeous.
House of Cards. So much House of Cards. I wasn’t a huge fan of the first few episodes, and I definitely don’t think this season was as good as the past two, but as it’s sat with me over the weeks I really enjoyed it. Especially towards the end. Can I be Claire Underwood please? Or at least, like, grow five feet and have her hair?
Also – Kimmy Schmidt! How does Netflix kill it with every series? They are all so good.
This Samsung NX300 camera – I have it in white. So, my iPhone stinks. I have one month until my contract is up and I’m waiting impatiently because it has spots on the camera and is getting super blurry (yes I’ve cleaned it) – and I’m sick of having ALL of my Max photos be not-so-great quality. My DSLR is HUGE (I use this huge lens regularly for my recipes and it’s just not convenient to grab when I want to snap a photo), so on the rec of Kristen, I got the NX300. It’s AWESOME. Super portable and beautiful quality – plus you can change lenses! Also… get this: it has freaking WIFI capabilities. Meaning I can snap photos and send them to my phone. #OMG2015
If you’re local, I’ve been majorly loving on two restaurants lately. First, Altius. It is SO delicious. And beautiful inside too. Second, Marty’s Market. To-die-for brunch and also where I can find fancy ass things like Jeni’s ice cream and wacky chocolate.
This super simple white button down shirt from Target. I’ve been wanting to find a white button down since before I was pregnant, but I didn’t – and then I was pregnant, so I still didn’t buy one. I really wanted a somewhat fancy one and one that is great quality because it’s such a classic piece. I still haven’t found that, but in the meantime I found this one (for $23!) that I REALLY like. It’s slightly oversized (at least I think? I usually wear a medium in tops and it’s fairly big.) and while some of the reviews online say it wrinkles easily, I actually don’t think it’s very wrinkly at all? Or it looks like effortless wrinkles? I don’t know – this one is great.
This Three Twins lemon cookie ice cream. Ummmmmmm dsjfkvbfskljgirw3uhwilf. That’s how I feel. This is SO FREAKING GOOD. Cannot get enough. You may have seen that I went to the grocery store hungry. GAH. Worth it.
Pineapple bacon guac. That is all I gotta say. This is unlike any guacamole I’ve ever had. Flipping out.
Music, let’s talk about it. I am loving Kacey Musgraves’ new song, Biscuits. It’s in my head constantly and I always belt it out to Max. I have it on a playlist with Bruno Mars Uptown Funk and Maroon 5 Sugar and we listed to the three of them every single day. Also, in the most random of randoms, I’ve been loving on Mariah’s album from 2008ish, E-MC2. I love the songs and it reminds me of a fun time in my life: Eddie and I had just got engaged.
I want to say that the birthday cake frappuccino from Starbucks was a huge favorite, but that’s not fair since it was only available for the last four days of the month. I am still REALLY loving the tiramisu latte. Like really. I think it tastes super mascarpone-y!
I’m pretty sure that this is cheating since I’ve only had them for three days, but they are certainly a favorite of the moment and will be seasonably obsolete next month. GLITTER EASTER EGGS! Do it.
Loving on my plain black Nikes. It’s super cliche but right now with Max, it’s the easiest thing to throw on some workout stuff and these shoes. Can simple black Nike shoes be chic? Probably not.
My favorite ginger kombucha – it’s always a favorite but this month I mixed it with vodka and strawberry puree. DYING. So good. A health drink? SURE.
I am REALLY loving pendant necklaces at the moment, which is just great considering I have a babe and probably only like one more month that I can successfully wear them. I bought one really similar to this (in store at J.Crew, mine had a pink opal stone and plain gold bar) and I love it so much! Especially with the whole white button down shirt thing. Or a white t-shirt. YEP.
I discovered these chocolate covered cashews in Target one day (of course) and took them on our road trip last weekend. UM. I almost ate the entire bag in one day. I even ate them quietly in the back seat with Max so I didn’t have to share. These things are freaking fabulous. Whoa.

I’m DEFINITELY going to watch KS! Heard so many good things. You’re bag is a freakin’ delight to!
I think I NEED that camera for my trip to Europe!!
omg you SO do. i’ve always hated traveling with my DSLR (but i’m not a camera person either) and this is like the best of both worlds!! also, it comes with a samsung guide to lenses (there are so many) and what they are best for. it’s awesome.
I’ve never had a DSLR, only a point and shoot. You think this is a good “transition” camera?
ooooh i’m probably not the best to ask, since i don’t know a lot about photography. i don’t know if *real* photographers would think this is better than a DSLR for traveling, but i think it’s great and would be awesome if you don’t have a DSLR yet. i feel like it has nearly all the benefits without the bulk? especially if you’re a point and shoot girl!
You have to watch Bloodline on Netflix next! Based on previous recs I think you will love it!!
it’s on my list!!
Ahh I want to go to Altius so bad!! How would you rate that camera for a new blogger?
i think it depends on what you want to use it for – do you want to use it for food photos? in my opinion nothing can beat the quality of a DSLR for food. also, this camera is pretty pricey and i think i bought my first DSLR for around this same price. these kind of cameras weren’t around at that time though… so with all of the lenses you can buy now, it might be great? but personally i’d buy a DSLR if you’re looking for blog food photos. it was the best investment i made when i first started.
I think my husband wants to kill me because every time we watch House of Cards, I’m like “I want to dress like Claire Underwood every day”. OMG. I NEED all of her clothes. I just want to prance around in Louboutins 24/7.
And I need American Starbucks. We have yet to obtain coconut milk at Starbucks in Canada. And you are KILLING me with this tiramisu latte and birthday cake frappucino. WHY CAN’T WE HAVE THOSE IN CANADA?!
That bag is just absolutely gorgeous. Just love the blush colour. Have you been stocking up on teething necklaces? I have friends who swear by them for a bit of practical glamor that also provide baby entertainment.
I do have a few teething necklaces that I LOVE! I got them as gifts but want to buy a few more – they are so adorable. I’m going to do a post on those on the baby section.
Robin wright isn’t very tall actually
I’m loving your Guyana bag in blush. What a great color for spring! Looks like a great tote for a decent price too!
re: long necklaces (aka babies ruin everything that’s why they are so adorable
I love Kimmy Schmidt SO MUCH. We blew through all the episodes in about a week so I hope they make more soon!!
is there something you can buy/make to put in flimsy purses ?????
If you can live without the whip (or add your own at home- if anyone can do it you can!) then you can still get the birthday frappucino! It’s just the regular vanilla bean cream frappucino (no coffee) with hazelnut syrup added, so they can make it year round if you order it as a VBCF with hazelnut!
Three Twins Ice Cream is thee best! Best. Best. A local company for me out here in the wine country- they are a super great company and really sweet people. I have actually had their custom olive oil ice cream and it was ridiculous. So yummy. Makes me proud to see their National attention!
Oooh I’ll have to check out Kimmy Schmidt. I just finished Parenthood. All 103 episodes. In a very short amount of time. I’m obsessed. I would like to be an honorary Braverman….. Anyway, now I’m looking for something new so I’ll have to check that one out. I’m going to start Friday Night Lights too. Just for grins. =)
that camera is the cutest <3
Love house of cards – agree about this season
enjoying Kimmy as well……
ok but need a recipe (strawberry pure – do you add anything or just puree strawberry’s? ) for your Kombucha drink! Sounds amazing ~ I LOVE ginger Kombucha especially that brand!!! num! :)
oy now I want those Nikes!
OMGosh Unbreakable Kimmy makes my gut hurt every episode. I am at the point where i am just going to go back and re-watch all the episodes again, because i know there are things I missed from the first episode.
Also loving the same Target White shirt!!
The stars aligned for me to have a birthday cake Frappuccino on my birthday! It was delicious. :-) I think we can wing it later by adding hazelnut syrup to a vanilla bean Frappuccino.
That blush bag is gorgeous!!! Wish they made the zipper ones in blush too!
Amazing ideas that we can use! Thanks
Yes that birthday drink was pretty fabulous. Kind of glad it is gone because It would have been tough to stay away.
I ordered one of these for my Louis and was thinking it could help with your purse.
I’m sure they have different sizes.
Ugh, I missed out on the birthday cake frappe and I’m so bummed. I went to the Starbucks by my mom’s house and ordered one and they said they were out of the stuff they need to make it! I was like, “BUT I ONLY HAVE ONE MORE DAY TO TRY IT!” And of course the next closest Starbucks is not close at all so I missed out.
Jessica, I have been searching for this ice cream forever and I am pregnant and need it so badly! Where do you buy it? Our Whole Foods doesn’t carry this flavor (nor do the three surrounding city’s Whole Foods). I am desperate!
Check the three twins website. It told me I could find it at Sprouts grocery stores, and while it wasn’t there, I did find it at Whole Foods. I would try any sort of “natural” grocery store near you. Good luck, as it is incredible!
UNBREAKABLE…such a cute show. Love it.
Is the tote a good size? I can’t tell how it would feel by the dimensions on the website — it looks like the ideal tote?
