Let’s do this!

Gotta find that silver lining.  I had an appointment at the hospital the other day, not fun. But as I pulled up, what a view!!!  The city looked so beautiful and it was a perfect summer day.  Sometimes I really love this city, but most of the time I really love LA more….#truth.

Really puts everything into perspective though, especially with the summer I have had. We are all here for a short period of time, so stop and smell the flowers. Below are some of the best pieces of advice out there.

1. Have the courage to live a life true to yourself, not the life others expect of you.
2. Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.
3. “There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.” Ernest Hemingway
4. Don’t make decisions when you’re angry. Don’t make promises when you’re happy.
5. “Never argue with a stupid person, they’ll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.” Mark twain
6. Only pack what you can carry yourself.
7. Remember you’ll always regret what you didn’t do rather than what you did.
8. “You’d worry less about what people think about you if you knew how seldom they do.” David Foster Wallace
9. If you blame it on someone else, don’t expect it to get better.
10. “You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, but there will always be someone who hates peaches.” Dita von Teese
11. If the grass is greener on the other side, there’s probably more manure there.
12. Don’t give up what you want most for what you want now.
13. With regards to the opposite sex: If you look hungry, you’ll starve.
14. “Never let your sense of morals prevent you from doing what is right.” Isaac Asimov
15. “Remember only enemies speak the truth. Friends and lovers lie endlessly, caught in the web of duty.” Stephen King
16. Never forget your car keys will change your car from one tonne of inert metal into one of the most deadly killing machines that has been invented.
17. Wait 24 hours before getting mad and reacting about anything. If it doesn’t bother you in 24 hours time, it probably isn’t important enough to get mad over.
18. Never make someone a priority who only makes you an option.
19. Try not to take anything personally. No one thinks about you as much as you do.
20. “If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.” Sirius Black
21. Figure out what you love to do, and then figure out how to get someone to pay you to do it.
22. Whenever something happens that makes you sad, ask yourself whether you’d still care about it when you’re ninety.
23. Be persistent. When knowledge and ability aren’t enough, be persistent.
24. “Life is scary. Get used to it. There are no magical fixes. It’s all up to you. So get up off your keister, get out of here, and go start doin’ the work. Nothing in this world that’s worth having comes easy.” Bob Kelso
25. Smart girls like to hear they’re pretty, pretty girls like to hear that they’re smart.
26. Happiness is a choice and everything else is a matter of perspective.

Roasted Sriracha Cauliflower Bites With Peanut Dipping Sauce

Yoooo, hold up, wait a minute, let me put my 2 cents in it!  Ya’ll better stop what your doing, go to Amazon and order this cookbook.  Not only are the receipies delightful, but it’s a delight to read. This Saturday I made the Roasted Siracha Cauliflower Bites with Peanut Dipping Sauce, and it was DIIVVVINNNEEE.

I love hot wings, a lot, more than the normal person. More then anyone I know. So much. I could eat hot wings for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  So a few months ago when I embarked on this vegetarian adventure, I won’t lie. A piece of my heart broke over the fact that I was never going to eat the spicy nugget ever again. Well my friends, where there is a will, there is a way…or a cookbook. Enter this receipe.

I pasted it below right from the tumblr account of Thug Kitchen so you can get a real taste of the hilarity of this book.

Sporting every trend today….feeling like quite the cliche. Case in point:

1. Culottes- the beauty of possibly looking like you are wearing a skirt and trying, but actually wearing pants and doing dancers pose. As a girl who doesn’t wear cut-offs, this is the perfect hybrid for me. The not quite long, but no quite short, not tight, but not shapeless, and  INCREDIBLY comfortable.  Easily dressed up or down, and pereffct for showing off your shoe-game.

2. The tie detail- Well, I’ve had this Reformation bodysuit drilled into me enough times by every Fashion Blogger, Actress, Website and even colleagues to be convinced that now every top I wear must be tied onto my body in one way or another.  I work in an office, so let’s be frank and say I wasn’t about to rock a bodysuit that ties in the front down to my nether regions. So this tank was the next best thing.  I love the look, and maybe I’ll even spring for the bodysuit- if they ever get my size in stock. #alwayssoldout

3. The Ugly Shoe- Whatever man. It’s Friday, they are comfortable and I am not explaining myself any further.
