eat / taco tuesday

I made these tacos last week and am already planning to make them again. They were SUPER easy and a nice change up of my usual Tex-Mex style tacos. I did make a few small changes: I added some finely chopped scallions to the beef at the end, added a little minced garlic (from the jar) with the garlic oil to the vinegar mixture, and did thinly sliced radishes instead of the cabbage. Find the whole recipe from BHG here!

Last weekend I made this recipe to freeze. I wanted to take advantage of the tomatoes at their best!

I love a good statement necklace, but this post makes me way to try statement earrings! I admit I'm a baby about heavy things on my ears, so we'll see how that idea goes...

I have been searching high and low for the perfect fisherman's sweater for years and A finally found me the men's department! I should have known. 

I have only a vague idea of our wedding venue, but I am really enjoying earmarking things for a registry. Right now my eyes are on this, this, and this

This nail polish may be the only color I ever need. It's the only color I will take off only to put on a fresh coat of the same thing. 

I love the pretty lacquer boxes from places like West Elm, but can't justify the cost. I am eager to try this DIY! I admit the idea of removing the hardware seems like too much work, so I would try this box without the clasp in the front.

decorate / copper french press

PSA: Bodum now makes a copper French press. As someone who has loved copper since middle school, this is very good news. 

Find one for yourself at West Elm, Crate and Barrel, or Starbucks. True life: Ours broke so I had an excuse to buy one and I bought mine where I had the best coupon.
