Sleep Well, Doughnuts and Pizza

Published in: Daily Photo

I’ve been on this low sugar/carb, high protein temporary meal plan thingy for a couple days because I have to take something called a glucose tolerance test tomorrow (#pregnantladythangs), and I think that’s why these cray-cray pajamas from Target are looking EXTREMELY delicious and comfortable to me right now.

How cute are these though!?

I admit that they’re a little insane…but who cares? They’re pajamas, and Tabs says that I can wear whatever I want.

The button-down one with the doughnuts and coffee is a nightgown ($17.99), but the one with the melty slices of pepperoni pizza on it ($21.99) is a two-piece ensemble.

Between the two of them, we’ve covered breakfast and lunch. ๐Ÿ™‚

In other news…how do you feel about grownups wearing pajamas in public?

Normally, I’m not a fan, because dude, I don’t need to see some grown-@ss man hoofing around Costco in his plaid flannel bottoms (seriously). Keep that to yourself, buddy.

Buuut I’m contemplating breaking that rule and wearing the doughnuts and coffee shirt with a pair of leggings.

Because it’s classified as a “sleep shirt,” and I read somewhere (I think it was Glamour or Allure) that sleep shirts are actually considered perfectly acceptable daywear attire.

So I’m going with that. ๐Ÿ™‚

Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer Holiday 2015 Travel Exclusive three-piece set

I miss the days when El Hub and I would go to Oahu to visit our family over Thanksgiving. His parents lived there (El Hub was born and raised in Hawaii), but now they live here in California.

So we’d visit every year, and oh! — the stories I could tell you about duty-free shopping. I can’t even remember how many times we’d be at the airport and I’d disappear into a duty-free shop while we waited for our flight.

El Hub would come running into the store, his eyes wide with panic, and say, “Sweetie! The flight is boarding NOW! Please put down the makeup!”

I always got a big kick out of it, but he was not amused, let me tell you. ๐Ÿ™‚

High Tea at the Rotunda at Neiman Marcus SF

Published in: Daily Photo

WARNING: Scroll no further, and do not look at any more of these pics, if you are currently so hungry that you could eat a stack of Post-Its.

Not kidding. I’m serious.

OK…if you read any further, don’t say I didn’t warn ya. ๐Ÿ™‚

These are pics from the Signature Tea service at The Rotunda at Neiman Marcus SF right down where the action is in Union Square, and it’ll put the rumbly in that tumbly.

Oh, boy… I can’t even look at these pics without wishing I was there right now stuffing my face with tiny sandwiches, cakes and cookies the size of my thumb.

Little better than than Strawberry Pop-Tarts I’m having for breakfast right now! (Although sometimes a Pop-Tart really hits the spot, I can’t lie.)

I met some friends there last week, Arianne from The Glitter Geek blog, her baby daughter Sarah and my buddy Marisol.

The Signature Tea service is a wonderful way to take a break from shopping for a few hours if you’re ever visiting the city with friends. It costs $45 for ample ambience, a pot of tea for each person (chosen from among a wide variety of flavors) and savory sandwiches, sweets, scones and fruit for noms.

Everyone has a different nom-eating strategy, but I started with the savory sandwiches (the sliced cucumber ones with cream cheese were my favorite, followed closely by the egg salad), then moved on to the scones (which I doused in lemon curd), before finishing with the sweets, which included a gingerbread cookie that made me feel like I was melting into my chair…

SO GOOD.

Of course, the tea was delectable, too. I ordered the vanilla decaf black, and it perfectly paired with the snacks.

I Actually Named My Trader Joe’s Herb Garden

Published in: Daily Photo

The plants on my little deck garden that brightened my spring and summer have bid their seasonal adieu. ๐Ÿ™ And now when I go back there to get some fresh air with Tabs, there are no more gorgeous greens and bright yellow sunflowers for us to look at (and for him to nibble). Just drooping vines and crumbly brown leaves.

But I gotta get my green thumb on somehow, so I picked up this Potted Herb Garden from Trader Joe’s…

I think it was around $10.

It’s sitting just to the left of my kitchen sink… I hope it hangs on through winter.

Cute Betsey Johnson Bag Alert!

Published in: Daily Photo

OK, so maybe it is totally cliche to both love makeup and also be totally into anything and everything with a lip print on it, but to that I say this: “MWWWAHH!” Because I don’t care! ๐Ÿ™‚ I love a cute lip print, ya feel me?

These adorable Betsey Johnson cosmetics bags are at DSW. I spotted them the last time I was there. They were tucked away on a cluttered shelf in the cash wrap area, otherwise known as “Impulse Buy Heaven.”

The bigger bags, the ones with the pink lips, are $29.95, and the smaller ones with the gold lips are $19.95. I thought about getting one as a spare/backup Christmas present for someone, but then I realized, who am I kidding? I’d just end up giving it to myself…

Still cute though, aren’t they? If Baby Girl were of age, I’d fill one with makeup and hair accessories for her. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m not seeing the bigger bag online, but the smaller one with the gold lips is available now on the DSW website.
