Spring and Summer Forecast

I feel it coming and it's going to explode. Well, maybe not EXPLODE, but if you're smart and fashion forward, you'll hop on this.


But not just any floral. Floral with a stark white background. Like the dress in the middle which is actually not a good representation. I'm not sure about the gauzy-ness which you'd think would go with spring.  Naw, the fabric I see is a much more study cotton, and the style is a more traditional A-line. Something a woman in the 50's would wear.

Oooh, look at this link I found!!  It's a perfect picture of the look!  Spring floral

The next thing I'm going to say is a delicate one.  Like polka dots and stripes together, only the savviest of the savvy should attempt it.  Some will try, most will fail and be talked about.

I've seen it too many times EVERYWHERE for it to not be the hot thing for the season.  I'm trying really hard to conjure up how to be fly in it... Maybe a tank-top with minimal colors??  I can't get with the rainbow brite look... 

IDK, I'll make it a project with my class and we'll see how it looks!

Happy Shopping


Wow.  I went to this jean site and look what showed up for women. I knew I was onto something...  it's still ugly.  Maybe the rainbow would be a better look IF you dare to try.


Cowboy Hash

I had been wanting to try this recipe since I saw it in one of the Rachael Ray books I bought myself for Christmas at the crazily low price of $5 each. Those books never go on sale so I snapped them up with the QUICKNESS even though I was supposed to be buying gifts for others. It had to be done. The cowboy hash was DELICIOUS!! For the spices we used cayenne pepper, salt, black pepper, cumin, oregano, rosemary. All yummy. I would have used a touch less cayenne but Mr. Hot Food Rashan loved it. We even made the fresh salsa and included the juice of two limes which made it so unnecessarily full of love. Look! The eggs are in the front and oh yeah we subbed chorizo for the bacon in the hash. The salsa is in the back.


Funeral Attire

I've heard two points of view.

It's a celebration, a homegoing party. Wear your brightest colors cause the pain and suffering of living in this world is over. Now the good life begins in heaven.

Its a time a mourning. The world has lost an angel. Black or navy for the somber occassion.

Which side do you take?
