Summer Snackage From the Garden

Published in: Daily Photo

Now that’s a hot pepper.

Get it…? Pepper? Hot? :)

Anyway, gardening. I love it, especially this time of year when everyone’s gardens are overflowing with fruit and vegetables.

My current produce bounty: bell peppers and cherry tomatoes from my deck garden.

The lemons, peaches and regular tomatoes are from my uncle’s garden in Union City, and the blackberries are from my parents’ yard.

In a word, yum.

Have you been noshing on any fresh fruit or veggies lately from your garden or someone else’s? What kind of stuff grows there?

My Mind Keeps Telling Me No…

Maneki Neko (2)

But the two maneki-neko cats that live on the windowsill in my office keep telling me, “Do it! You need the Kate Spade Hello Tokyo Cat Purse, Jimi Flats and Cat iPhone 5 Case.”

I’ve had my eye on these for a while…

I’m not sure how much longer I can resist that purse, man. The cuteness is clawing at my soul.

For the record, I’m going to file this under “Crazy Cat Lady Problems.”

“Meow! We need a new friend, Karen. NEED!”

I’m Really Lichen Golden Mossy Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigments Eyeshadow in Forest Fatale

Maybelline’s Color Tattoo Pure Pigments Eyeshadow in Forest Fatale (2)

Next to Downtown Brown, which I love for its practicality, Forest Fatale is my second favorite Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigments Eyeshadow shade.

An ethereal, almost mystical golden mossy color, it’s a beauty all on its own. It doesn’t need any help.

Forest Fatale is like waking up on a bed of leaves in an enchanted forest, and looking up to see sunlight filtering through the branches of the trees above you.

I simply lurve it, but it has a darker side…

Ooh! Mysterious. Don’t worry, though — it’s a good darker side.

Layer it on top of a black base like MAC Smolder Eye Kohl, and jello, drama! Forest Fatale transforms into a total @ss-kicker color worthy of cute brass knuckles and a kickin’ moto jacket (complete with skull and crossbones).

Yes, I said cute brass knuckles…because you know I’m not about to roll with a pair of fugly ones. :)

Fashionable Forest Fatale is also an affordable $7, and you can find it now at Ulta stores and online.

Cat Lady Mystery Novels: Yes, It’s a Thing

Published in: Daily Photo

QUESTION: What do you get when you combine cats and mystery novels?

ANSWER: A friggin’ boatload of awesome.

I was at Barnes & Noble last Saturday perusing the magazines and young adult sections when I saw a familiar greenish yellow glint out of the corner of my eye.

Cat eyes.

There were probably dozens upon dozens of mystery novels with cats on their covers. I learned that there’s an entire sub-genre of mystery-solving cats. MEOW-ZA!

Did you know about this? I had no idea.

I have so many new books on my wish list now…
