This Month's Favorites

I'm going to start a new series on here where at the end of each month I share some of my favorite things I've discovered, worn, purchased and learned throughout the month! The topics will probably change a bit from month-to-month, but I think it will be a great way to reflect on life (because it really does fly by) as well as share more of what I love!

Suede Ankle Boots

Favorite Purchase

I love the pointed toe and the price!

Quick and Easy Vegetarian Pita Pizza

Favorite New Recipe

Quick Pita Pizzas [Vegetarian]

Serving size: 1 person
Cook on a cookie sheet at 425 for 10 minutes
  • 2 pitas
  • a couple of spoonfuls of pizza sauce spread over the pitas
  • shredded mozzarella 
  • 1 diced roma tomato
  • any other veggies you want! I sometimes add sliced mushrooms like above, as well as onions, bell peppers, banana peppers and more
  • a sprinkle or two of garlic salt and black pepper
  • bake at 425 on a cookie sheet for 10 minutes
  • cut fresh basil over the top & enjoy!
I kind of came up with this idea myself (a small miracle) and found a bit of guidance online with cooking time and temp, but I think I can actually claim this recipe as my own! It's sooooo yummy! And a very simple, light, quick dinner. This time of year, Trey has football practice or games pretty much every night, so a few nights a week I'm on my own for dinner. I had to come up with some ideas that were easy to cook for just one person (because I'm not going to go to a lot of work for just myself). This is what I keep coming back to!

MAC lipsticks and Almay primer

Favorite Beauty Finds

Almay Smart Shade CC Luminous Primer && MAC Lipsticks in 'Velvet Teddy' and 'Pink Plaid'

This primer - oh my goodness it's fantastic! I've tried a boatload of high-end primers trying to find one that would help even my skin tone and help my makeup stay longer. I picked this one up on a whim at Wal-mart and haven't used my previous favorite since. It helps my foundation and concealer stay in place, improves the appearance and smoothness of my skin underneath my makeup, is SPF 15, and hasn't made me breakout! At around $10 it really can't be beat. Just give it a couple of minutes to sink in before applying foundation!

I also picked up a couple of new MAC lipstick colors a couple of weeks ago and love them both! 'Pink Plaid' is a really pretty light pink that adds some color to your lips and face but is subtle enough to wear on a daily basis and in the office. 'Velvet Teddy' is one that I had wanted forever and finally tried and it's what I've been wearing nearly every day and in all of my outfit posts lately! The girl at the MAC counter sold me on pairing it with the liner in 'Whirl' and they are the together. It's a brown-nude and is so flattering. Trey even noticed it and loved it ;)
