Thanksgiving is the bomb.

Because, duh? Who doesn’t want to eat, drink, & chill?

I did my cooking early in the morning ( I made these Brussels & this skinny pumpkin roll x 2 ) so I could relax instead of running around like a bat-shit psycho ( << AKA per usual ).

& you guys…my stepmom, Julie set the most beautiful table.

She’s so damn creative & inspiring; her cute name tags kill me— like, seriously?!

BTW, I can’t take photo cred for the pics- they’re all from her blog, Burlap and Crystal.

Thanksgiving favorite foods: fresh cranberry sauce & jalapeño corn pudding.

Together.

Fancccccyyy.

Oh, & here’s what I wore ( << this whole outfit is on sale for Cyber Monday (!!) ):

{ If you follow TSConf on Instagram then you know this was taking at ‘The Kitty Den’ AKA my new place : ) }

Anyway, The Evarts’ dinner ended with my sisters & I headbangin’ to Christmas music.

I’d say it was a success.

How was your TG?

Lauryn Evarts, fitness blogger, health blogger, and diet blogger talks skinny tips and tricks for weight loss.Nothing beats Black Friday…in bed.

Yup.

Today I did my Black Fri shopping, online, in bed, while watching Real Housewives.

Multi-tasking at its finest, peeps.

Anyway, here’s the eight online stores I’m loving…( I def did some major damage on Nasty Gal ( because, hello?! 40% off all black?! ) & Planet Blue— FML ):

1.} ASOS: ummmm…20% of EVERYTHING. Die, right?! Promo code: GIMME20.

2.} Nasty Gal: take 40% off everything black ( the best color ever ).

3.} Net-a-Porter: get up to 50% off select merchandise.

4.} Nordstroms: all their Black Friday deals can be found here.

5.} Planet Blue: an extra 25% off all sale items. So basically free, right ; )? Code: BLACKOUT.

6.} Revolve Clothing: up to 75% off the whole site…NBD. 10% off total order. Code: TULIP.

7.} Shopbop: use code: BIGEVENT13 for up to 25% off.

8.} Singer22: 20% off all orders. Code: GIFT.

Cool beans.

My favorite buys: this number, this LOVERS + FRIENDS leather shirt, & this little 20% off gem.

Hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving! My day had a slow, pathetic start…I blame it on the champagne tryptophan hangover.

Lauryn Evarts, fitness blogger, health blogger, and diet blogger talks skinny tips and tricks for weight loss.Yesterday I had a pre-Thanksgivs meltdown.

Well, not really, but kinda.

I wanted to post the PERFECT Skinny Confidential recipe for you guys.

But I didn’t want to make skinny stuffing or nasty gravy ( sorry, not a fan ).

So alllllll day long I was OCD-ing on WTF to post {?!?!}.

At around 6 pm I decided to text my über-healthy friend, Carly.

And obviously she had the best recipe ever. Because, duh.

I mean, seriously— cinnamon/cider Brussels sprouts?

Heaven.

The easiest directions ever ( makes four servings ): in a large pan over medium heat, heat oil. Cook Brusssels sprouts ( cut side down ), flipping once until browned for ten to twelve minutes. Add apple & pear; cook until soft for five minutes. Add cider & cinnamon; simmer, stirring, until all liquid cooks away.

Oh, & NBD: a serving offers about 3/4 of your daily need for Vitamin C.

I made these today & will def be whipping ‘um up tomorrow for TG.

So good it hurts.

Happy Thanksgiving-eve!
