3 Things On my Mind


So this post is a little different in that there is no one theme, project, product, baby or design I'm talking about. Instead I just want to share 3 totally unrelated things with you that happen to be rolling around in my brain at the moment.

O N E:

Ok, so we have all heard about the popularity of the steam unit as an appliance in the kitchen right? Well, now there is one for the closet! The LG Styler, ever heard of it?

I came across this new (to me) little jewel on snapchat of all places and I was instantly enamored with it. A bunch of fashion bloggers I follow on snap must of been given this unit on the same day because I went from never having heard of it to seeing it multiple times in an hour. Once my curiosity was sparked, I did what anyone would do and I googled that beast. And now....now I want one. OY, great, I know, another thing to add to my every growing wish list, but in all seriousness this thing sounds pretty legit.

So, how does it work? Well, steam blows around inside the unit while the hangers twirl your clothes  around causing wrinkles to fall and your clothes to come out looking fresh from the dry cleaners. The appliance uses a TrueSteam technology in addition to a deoderizer to reduce foul smells that often cling to fabric.

At 17 1/2" wide and 23" deep this unit could easily fit in the laundry room OR inside your closet. The downside? It's $2000........womp womp.

If you know me at all you know I'm no cook, I'm barely even a sous chef and the ultimate bad influence when it comes to food. I could eat cheese dip for every meal and sometimes I do! But, as of late Brent and I have really been trying to cook at home more. Not only is it generally healthier, but it saves money and time, which is nice. My sister Candace has been helping with meal ideas and she recently introduced me to a trick that has blown my mind. Get ready....

Greek Yogurt....you know, this stuff:

IS A SUBSTITUTE FOR SOUR CREAM!!!!!!!!

A legit, tastes-the-same substitute!!! Did you all know this? Am I the last to state the obvious?? Typically when people tell me of these tricks I act like I believe them, but I know deep down they have only fooled themselves into believing it's the same. The truth is I'm a tough critic. I can smell a diet food a mile away, but this trick...this trick is legit. We have made a fajita dish recipe of Candace's twice now and each time we have used greek yogurt as opposed to sour cream and both times Brent and I were shocked at how satisfying and delicious it is.

T H R E E:

Yesterday morning in an attempt to make my bed I somehow knocked over my night stand (because you know... muscles) and broke my lamp. 

The black and white lamp in the photo below. 



Brent witnessed the whole thing and in an attempt to make me feel better was nonchalantly all like "it's just a Target lamp". He was right, it was just a Target lamp, but the thing about Target is....once it's gone, it's gone. This particular lamp was from the Nate Berkus Collection circa 2013 (ish) and while I only paid +/- $30 for it, the fact that now I can't replace it makes it, and all of my Target finds seem that much more valuable. The moral of this little story...I'm not really sure. All I do know is that I'm one lamp short, so if you happen upon this lamp somewhere out there in the cyber world let me know!
