I love these two!!  A very special #MusicMonday Coachella edition, Beyoncé joins sis Solange for a dance party during her set.  Solange is one of my very favorite live performances ever.  I saw her in Los Angeles last summer & it was a straight up party.  (I also ran into her DTLA & I was totally star struck.  I’m a li’l obsessed.)

Sunday Supper: Cacio e Pepe with Brussels

main-recipe

I am very much into simplicity & quality in foods, so a perfectly-done cacio e pepe is one of my very favorite pasta dishes.  This recipe takes it to the next level by adding delicious sauteed brussels sprouts.  It is soooo yummy & super easy.  Enjoy!

Manicure Monday: Charity Edition

One of my favorite brands, Kiehl’s, will debut a nail polish—their 1st ever!—benefiting amfAR in July.  A sleek minimalist black of course!  What else would you expect from this streamlined brand?  I have long been a fan of black polish, which is in my heavy regular rotation, so you can expect me to be 1st in line.  I am deeply involved in HIV/AIDS advocacy & services, so this is a win-win for me.  The formaldehyde-free polish will be in stores and online just in time for the company’s annual LifeRide motorcycle trip, a 20 person ride to raise HIV awareness and funds for amfAR. This year’s 2,000 mile ride will be the longest since its inception in 2010—it begins in Milwaukee and ends at the Kiehl’s original location at Third Avenue and 13th Street in Manhattan. 

Lupita is absolute perfect perfection. Even though awards season is over I just cannot get enough of her. Stunning. Her stylist should win every award ever.
