The combination of rain, a very painful (but much-needed) massage and a sleepless night has left me way too tired to write much. But lest I end the week without posting at all, I’ve rounded up some weekend essentials.
Trendwatching.com reports on it’s July/August trend: “Newism.” What do you think: is there anything all that new about the need for faster and newer?
Also, a bit of shameless self-promotion: a post I wrote on a separate blog was Freshly Pressed, so if you’re interested check it out.
Hungry Hannah’s Honey Lime Baked Chicken. I had my eye on the recipe and finally made it the other night when I needed a no-fuss recipe that was still reasonably healthy. It’s so easy to make and still winds up incredibly flavorful and moist. The cayenne adds a real kick, and it’s easy to adjust the heat level to your liking.
The Olympics closing ceremonies on Sunday! Apparently the Spice Girls will be making an appearance, and if that doesn’t get your pulse up than you clearly aren’t a girl born between 1987 and 1991 (and also aren’t my friend).
If you’re a fan of the xx you have to listen to their newest single, Chained. I absolutely loved Angels, and from the sound of their first few singles Coexist is going to be a good, although not revolutionary or fresh, CD.
Check out SceeneShoes’s hilarious assortment of hand-painted bras on Etsy. For the gamer in you, there’s the xbox 360 controller bra, but I’m partial to the Ninja Turtle motif. The Ninja Turtles and I go all the way back to my first hand-me-down TMNT bike, so they have a soft spot in my heart.
