Beauty, Fashion, Food
What up, Snack Pack! Photographs from my lovely weekend are already organized in a manner that reminds me of departments of a magazine: Beauty, Fashion and Food. So let’s indulge my SnackFace Magazine fantasies and pretend this post is like pages of a periodical. Hello, alliteration!
SnackFace: How To Get the Night Look
There is a distinct difference between what looks good at night versus during the day. Actually, it’s about what you can get away within the dimly lit hours versus the harsh sunlight. Why not vamp it up when you can?
-Use a small, round brush dipped into a dark brown shadow (I used the second to darkest shade in the L’Oreal Studio Secrets Professional Eyeshadow Quads Earthscape palette). Starting from the outer corner of eye’s crease, draw the brush to the inner corner, following the lid’s arch and your brow bone. Swipe back and forth. Feel free to use your fingers to blend– I find that works best when things get out of whack.
-Using a flat angle brush, dip into black eyeshadow. Use this as a liner from the outer, top lashline to above your pupil. Gently line bottom lashline, too. The angled brush + shadow combo creates a less-harsh line that lasts longer.
-Coat lashes with your fave mascara. I used Maybelline The Colossal Volum’ Express in Glam Brown.

As stated before, a night out means you can vamp it up. As long as your wobbly bits are properly covered, you’re set. I may have risked it with this look:
I’d like to blame my watching The Real Housewives of New Jersey while getting ready for Friday night for this look. But really, I just like a little animal print in my life:
Snack Your Face Off: Ultimate SnackFacing
Over a long, leisurely weekend, meal times get thrown off, some are forgotten and some are over-the-top. The only thing you need to make sure of when it comes to weekend–hell, anytime– food is this: That on a scale of 1 to 10 of deliciousness, it is off the charts.
ReciPlease: Back on Track
Chips, pie and brews (and enchiladas and burritos and margs and…) are fun, but sometimes it feels incredible to get back to “normal” eats. (What is “normal,” anyway?) Here’s how I get to feeling more balanced come Sunday morning:
In the bowl: one container Chobani vanilla Greek yogurt mixed with 1/3 C oats. Oats were made stovetop with 1 C water, 1 packet PureVia, cinnamon and a pinch of chia seeds. A crunchy peanut butter drizz is essential:
More often than not, I have no idea what I really want to eat. That’s when I call on snack plates:
Maybe I was reading Gliding Calm before I made that plate. Maybe.
Following snack plates with snacks is entirely acceptable, if not expected:
CiaoChow: Midnight Snack(s)
No matter what you’ve eaten in a day, be sure to end it with a fabulous midnight (or bedtime or 10pm) snack(s). You should know I’m working on my third mug of Honey Bunches of Oats. Definitely feeling 100 percent SnackFacey.
Ciao for now,
QUESTIONS: Are your weekend eats different from your weekday eats? AND Is leopard a Do or a Don’t? AND Has a man (or boy—they’re all boys) ever cooked for you? If so, what?
