Ok so apparently some of you guys think I’m pregnant!!!

Eerrrr…awkward because…

I’m most certainly NOT pregnant; a few of you asked me ( I think maybe I was talking about someone else being pregnant & a couple of people were confused? ). Unless there’s a pic I look preg in?

So before we got started I just wanted to nip that little, fun tidbit in the bud ( no pun intended ).

In fact, I’ll most definitely be enjoying a homemade ginger margarita this Friday ; ). Haha!

Oh & by the way, if we’re on the whole lovey-dovey note…guess what?

I still haven’t planned a thing for our wedding.

Zip. Zero. Zilch.

I literally think I’m the worst soon-to-be bride on the planet. I feel like every other girl in the universe is the opposite of me on this one ( is there anyone out there who took their time on the whole wedding thing? If so, make me feel better— PUHLEASE? ).

I do have a few unopened bridal magazines ( aka stocking stuffers from Christmas ) by my bed with cobwebs on them…& once I envisioned our invitation for a minute & then I got distracted and started watching Real Housewives.

Seriously though, I probably should get on the whole wedding planning bandwagon soon…SO BRIDES/MARRIED LADIES: tips, tricks, etc.? You guys always have the BEST little tippity-tips…so share, share, share. Where the F should I start? What should I do? Can I still have an engagement party? Or do I just suck at #weddinglife?

HELP!

Happy Monday, Lauryn x

New Year’s Eve/NY Ideas!! xx

Today & tomorrow are the last days to shop for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s festivities!!!

As you guys know I made a full TSC lookbook dedicated to winter looks & I definitely included NYE and NY dresses/tops/etc. So if you’re looking for a full NY look don’t forget to check it out.

This velvet dress would be so much for New Year’s Eve because it’s unexpected but also super different & pretty. I wore this little get-up while in Central Park in New York City. I ended up also wearing it to a holiday party the other night too. LOVE!

Hers: red dress || leather jacket ( similar ) || boots ( similar ) || fingerless gloves

This shoot was a real hoot because I made Michael jump in. It’s fun for a change, right?! I think it’s rad because it shows a male’s perspective on fashion. Meow.

As I’ve said, we love to play off each other’s look & this one was really fun to play off. He’s obsessed with his chunky black boots so obviously I had to get a similar pair ( twinzies!! LOL ).

Ok so what are you guys wearing for New Year’s Eve or New Year’s? Anything fun? Share!!

Personally I’m kind of over the glittery, sequin look. This year is all about the gold tones, velvet, & leather.

Can’t wait to cheers to 2015!! Chin, chin.

Another 5 Second Party In Your Mouth: Honey/Fig Jam (!!!) With WEN Hair Care

Ok so if you guys read The Skinny Confidential Lifestyle Guide & this post you already know that I AM OBSESSED WITH WEN cleansing conditioner. Their products are bomb.com ( << just realness ).

So when they asked me to create a fig recipe to match their fig conditioner, I said “uhhhh…duh.”

I genuinely love WEN, so it’s kind of a win/win. The creator of WEN, Chaz Dean just understands a woman’s hair. My locks always look super luscious after using the product.

AND FIGS!!!

YOU GUYSS!!! I mean…it’s all about figs.

So today I present: honey/fig jam.

It’s kinda like this little quick raspberry jam but it’s almost better because what the hell is better than figs x honey ( plus some lemon & chia seed )? So Martha S.

Going off on a tangent here: remember Fig Newton’s? Makes me feel so nostalgic. Everyone ate them when they were younger? Yellow box? Anyway I can vividly remember my parents thinking they were fully healthy.

Whelp- welcome to 2014, because guess what?

They’re filled with GMO’s…UGGGH.

So attention Fig Newton lovers: this raw honey fig jam will replace the so-called ‘healthy cookies.’

And FIGSSSS!! Like, the real figs…they’re full of benefits. To name a few: they are filled ( like, FILLED ) with fiber, they keep your digestive system healthy ( nudge, nudge, wink, wink ), & are a major antioxidant/super food.

A fig recipe by The Skinny Confidential.

For this recipe: cut figs in half, scoop fig-goodness out ( I used the best invention ever: a melon scooper ), add to a tiny bowl, add 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, 2 squeezes of lemon, 3 squeezes of raw honey, & mash/mash/mash ( ‘Crush’ mashing bowl found here ). Spread on your favorite piece of toast ( I prefer a Rudi’s spelt English muffin with this 5 second recipe ). Other options: add to two ingredient pancakes, use as a baked potato or sweet potato topping, &/or crackers with cheese.

So eat your figs, people.

Ok, so I’m totally going to go wash my hair with fig conditioner & eat fig jam.

Peace, Lauryn

Mini DeLites: TSC Takes Miami #2

The Skinny Confidential talks diet, fitness, and health.

{ Saturday night’s black tie event || dress here  }

10:15 PM, bowl of watermelon & chia seeds, on the COUCH, typing….

…come on now, remember the no comp in bed rule?

But if we’re being 100% real, Michael usually staggers out of bed after 15 minutes of me sitting on the couch by myself & pretends to dramatically ( with a full-on theatrical sound effects ) search the fridge for something that doesn’t exist. Sort of like “hmmmm, what should I eat?” or “sigh! What sounds good?”

I don’t answer, because well, I’m working. So minimal attention is given to his fake fridge scan.

Then he will sigh extra, extra, EXTRA loud & say “babe you can come back to bed if you want…with your computer.”

So technically he cheats on our rule, not me.

Honestly though, I’m not too bent out of shape about the rule because remember: we don’t live together…yet. And maybe I’m sort of cheating too. On him. With my computer.

So anyway there’s THAT update.

As far as our trip: we’re back! Miami was amazing & I ended up checking out many of your recommendations, guys!! SERIOUSLY- WHAT A FUN CITY!! I’ll definitely be back soon.

I’m still in a full blown Miami coma but I’m going to drag my ass outta bed suppppper early tomorrow & unpack, clean, do laundry, stock the fridge, shoot a couple posts, work, & bathe the smelly Twinkles ( << the latest & greatest name for the chihuahuas ). I will also say I couldn’t be happier to get back in to a routine.

Woot, woot.

Happy MONDAY! x, Lauryn
