Too Busy To Deal? Try This 5 Second Chia Seed Jam

The Skinny Confidential shares a chia seed jam recipe.

The Skinny Confidential shares a chia seed jam recipe.

Ohhhh yes.

You that read that right: chia seed jam.

Made by yours truly.

Which can be VERY easily whipped up by YOU GUYS in 4.5 seconds.

Jam is my jam.

I LOVE it. It’s just so damn yummy on a piece of toast with a little grass-fed butter. But it’s full of weird fillers.

Don’t worry though, I gotcha covered. Check out this video:

Basically all you do is take your favorite berry ( mine’s raspberries but I also like boysenberries ), 1 to 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, & mash it together with a fork on a cutting board. Spread it on your favorite bread & you’re good to go. For a recipe without chia seeds click here.

& of course, chia seeds are full of healthy benefits: they’re filling, a total superfood, and full of calcium, potassium, iron, & protein.

I seriously make this recipe at least four times a week. & honestly? This jam is ideal for anyone’s who’s always running out the door like a freaking psycho every morning. AKA me.

Sometime I add a pinch of stevia or a squeeze of lemon too.

Ultimately, the goal of The Skinny Confidential is to make things simple for busy people who want to live a balanced life. And this recipe is SO simple!! It’s one that will work EVERYDAY.

Because sorry I’m not sorry, that I don’t have time to make handmade perserves like Suzy f-ing Homemaker.

Try this & let me know your thoughts! Happy Thursday, x.

TSC Series: The Best Damn…

The Skinny Confidential talks jeans.
**Goosebumps** over these jeans.

They’re SO good.

Seriously though, I have three pairs & wear them ALL the time.

(( First things first, little disclaimer: as posted last week, this is a new series I’ve started to showcase my favorite…everything. These aren’t sponsored posts…just some real deal realness. If you want to know a specific product fav, let me know below & I’ll make it happen )).

Ok so back to biz: these jeans…are well, phenomenal.

They’re perfect for a day super profesh day at the office, a night out on the town, &/or lounging around the house.

These aren’t the type of jeans that you want to unbutton when you’re in the car because they’re so damn uncomfortable. No, no the material is like stretchy butter ( if that were a thing? ). So not only are these babies the most flattering jeans ever, they’re superrrrr comfortable. Literally so comfortable you could practically workout in them.

Uhhhhh…so do you blame me for buying three pairs? Plus they’re a measly $59 bucks ( not that $59 bucks is measly, but seriously in this day & age, for jeans it’s kinda a steal…right?! ). I’m not interested in owning a bunch of $300 dollar jeans— because honestly jean trends come & go.

& let’s be real: jeans are hard to find. So when I find a pair I love, I freak out gnarlier than Oprah’s audience during Christmastime.

Anyway I’ve worn these black dimes for three years (!!!). THREE.whole.years— same pair. These jeans have obviously seen some shit ( kind of like The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants but without the sisterhood stuff ). They’ve been everywhere!

Oh, & the best part? If you get these jeans & they don’t fit you like a freaking glove, have them altered. For some reason these particular black skinny jeans are a dream to alter!!! The material just melts to your bod.

Note: they’re kind of high waisted ( which I personally love ).

What’s your favorite pair of black skinnies? Do tell.

Here’s how I rocked these jeans for a business casual Monday:

Oh Heyyyy, Memorial Day Sales!

The Skinny Confidential talks Memorial Day sales.

Ahhhhh!!! F you, sales! They’re so amazing right now— I seriously can’t deal.

I’m so obsessed with the Nordstrom ‘Free People’ selection & the fact that it’s all on sale, makes me want to do a weird jig.

I also want to do the same kinda creepy jig because it’s a three day weekend.

So—- what’s your plan(s)? I’ll be laying low, going to the human torture history museum ( << so oddly excited!! ), reading, & making this pasta salad.

Anyway, check out my favorite, dope-ass pieces below ( <<—— all on sa-sa-sale!! ).

Oh! & happy Memorial Day weekend! xx. le

Some Springtime Obsessions…Like, Seriously-It’s-Prob Kinda Obsessions

The Skinny Confidential talks springtime.

I love black and white…everything.

I really, honestly can’t help it.

So the other day I had a one of those moments ( I know you alllllll can relate on this one ) where I walked over to my closet & threw every single item on the floor that wasn’t black or white. And then I asked myself: “are you actually really going to wear this?” I’m always trying to justify clothes that need to get out of my closet ASAP. For instance: ‘I may need those khaki pants because I possibly could go camping.’ Like, no- it was time to get real. I’m not going camping anytime soon so buh-bye khakis.

& hello clean, mostly black & white closet.

Anyway, here’s what I’m dying over for spring & summer:

The Skinny Confidential talks springtime.

1.} White pumps get me. If I were a shoe, I’d for sure be a white pump. They’re so hot with jeans, a summer romper, &/or a super long maxi.

2.} Jumpers!!! Ahh. They’re so fun for a date night or a girl’s night out. I feel like they’re super chic but doesn’t give off that ‘I’m trying too hard vibe.’ This Flynn Skye one stole my heart ( plus it’s on sale on Shopbop ( << my absolute favorite store ) for the next two days for 25% off, woot-woot ).

3.} I can’t deal when I go on a spontaneous road trip & have a crappy bag. This weekender bag is under $25 bucks & literally is to die.

The Skinny Confidential talks springtime.

4.} A crop top x a maxi skirt are my go-to. Jessica Alba just rocked the hottest crop to the MTV Awards, so I’m all about the crop + a sexy skirt.

5.} WWOD? AKA ‘What would Olsen’s do?” They’re all for nude nails & a fierce lip lately. I’m loving this polish shade called ‘Spin the Bottle’ & this lipstick called ‘Candy Yum-Yum.’

Anything I’m missing? Tell, tell.
