Hi guys! Happy first day of June! I can’t believe we’re already almost halfway done with 2012–crrrrrrrazy stuff. I’m excited though because in a little less than 2 months, I’m turning 20 which is also crazy. Where is my life going?
I wanted to start doing Friday Faves posts to highlight some of the things I’m currently loving so here goes!
Favorite Song: Titanium (David Guetta ft. Sia)
I don’t know why, but I’m just loving this song. The music video is a little out there, but it kinda goes along with the lyrics. I like them because they’re talking about inner strength, which is something I always need a little more of.
Favorite Nail Color Combo: Teal and sea foam
Apparently I’m taking my nail polish inspiration from the ocean! I really love how these two shades play off each other and work so well together. And they’re bold but not too flashy.
I’m loving random lunches lately. The one above covered all the bases: veggie, fruit, grain, protein, fat. But more importantly, it was delish! If you’ve never tried sprouted sourdough bread, you must. It’s flour free but has that great hint of sourness and is perfect for toast. The mango-glazed tempeh was also a winner and beyond easy to make.
Favorite Website: The F***ing Weather
Don’t go here if you don’t like, um, not so nice language. But it’s kinda hilarious.
Lace anything is my favorite right now, as are neon-colored shorts. What can I say, I like to make a statement! Dark grey and hot pink look amazing together and are just as good of a color combo as black and pink–I hate black, so this is how I roll.
Favorite Thing I’ve Made: Spicy Nacho Cheez Sauce
I love love love cashew cheez! Seriously, it’s perfect in every form–cream cheez, mascarpone cheez and now, nacho cheez. Who would have thought a simple nut could make delicious vegan cheese sauces?! I don’t question it, I just make it! Now you can enjoy some vegan nacho cheez to drizzle on nachos (duh), tacos or whatever. I made mine thick, like a hummus, but you can thin it out with more almond milk. So far, I’ve had it as a dressing on a veggie burger salad and as a carrot dip and it’s sooooo creamy and spicy.
Spicy Nacho Cheez Sauce (vegan, gluten-free)
1/4 cup raw cashew pieces
1/2 can white beans, drained and rinsed (use any kind of white beans that are soft, like navy beans)
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 1/2 tbsp nutritional yeast
sea salt, to taste
1/2 large jalapeno, sliced
cayenne pepper, to taste
In a food processor or blender, process all ingredients until smooth and thick. Add more jalapeno slices or cayenne pepper, if needed. Serve warmed over multigrain tortilla chips, or chilled over salads. Makes about 1 cup.
Favorite Purchase: AE Metallic T-Strap Sandal
They still haven’t come yet (stupid slow mail) but I’m beyond excited to wear them. I love that they’re simple yet still dressy and they’ll go with a lot. Plus I got them for only $18…with free shipping. Score!
