What's Hap-Pinning


Wednesday, July 27, 2016

So I was browsing Pinterest as I always do looking for new recipes, hair tips and tricks, clothes and cocktails.

These carrots look amazing. And the best part is, we are growing carrots in an old wine barrel right now. I can't wait to try this recipe with them.

I eat salads almost daily for lunch unless I have leftovers. I always looking for new salads to try and this one mimics one of my favorite ones from the Cheesecake Factory. It is only missing the jicama and fried onions, which I could easily add on to it.

Another salad I would love to make for myself would be this spinach salad.

Today is National Scotch Day and you better believe I will be taking part of it...tonight...after dinner that is. In honor of scotch day, I would love to be enjoying a glass of Macallan 25, but sadly that isn't in price range right now. So instead I will be enjoying this one.

Last week I had some pain in my armpit. It hurt to lift my arm and even put deodorant on it. It had a slight bump inside of it and I think it was from my deodorant or a clogged sweat gland (per the doctor who I sat next to at the wedding last weekend). But it really got me thinking that I shouldn't be using traditional antiperspirant due to the cancer issue. I have always rolled my eyes at it, but I just don't want to risk it. So I have been looking into other options and Jenn posted about this natural one a week ago. I really want to try it. She says it takes a bit to get used to, but she likes it. So I think I might try it. Have any others tried it before? What did you think?

I am loving this look. Sure it is listed as Spring wear, but I think it is still fitting for the summer. I would love to get a skirt like this and wear it to work or date nights. It would be perfect for Europe!

  7. I too have thought about the deodorant switch. I just have a bad sweat problem and Texas heat is well intense.

  9. I may have to try that deodorant! Especially since it says it won't discolor your clothes. I've been using spray on because I can't stand stick deodorant all over my clothes.

  11. Those salads look great! Try homemade deodorant, it works perfect and is insanely easy to make! Plus WAY cheaper than natural deodorants you can purchase.
