Random things I learned last month

Dutch ovens are the best cooking invention ever. And short ribs are way easier to cook than I ever imagined. Big ups to Home Goods (discounted cookware!) and The Butcher and Larder (for the short ribs and tips on how to cook them)!

  
Bobbi Brown‘s Bronze Shimmer Brick is one of my favorite beauty products, but it did not survive my recent business trip. After failed attempts to put it together like a puzzle, it’s just a $48 mess. So sad. 

 When given the opportunity to try a limited reserve tequila, never pass it up! I thought I hated Cuervo until I was exposed to the Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia Extra Anjeo. Where can I find another bottle????

 

There is good gumbo in Chicago!!!! Analogue in Logan Square came with some awesome Cajun recipes. Yum. We went there three times in January. 
 

 
Dog coats are a blessing and curse…helps her in the Chicago cold. But when she wears it she doesn’t want to come home as quickly! 

 
Hope your year has started out fun too! 🎉

Black Matte Nail Polish

I’ve noticed the steadily popular black nail polish trend isn’t going away, and I couldn’t help but try it for myself. After seeing an ad recently that featured a black-on-black french manicure (matte base and shiny tips, which is all over google images) I decided to go for a matte black look and daydream about having enough skill to make it a french someday. In the end I liked it a lot!

Bobbi Brown Party Eye Palette

Just got the “Party Eye” Palette I ordered using a Barney’s gift card that I held onto for WAY too long! So excited to use it this week…. The colors look perfect for a neutral-smoky eye!!
