3 Things On My Mind Today

It's a rainy Monday morning in New York, and I'm not mad about it. I kind of love rainy days (once in a while) - everything feels a little slower, and you don't feel as bad about putting things off until tomorrow ;). 3 things on my mind this morning...

1. If you follow us on Instagram, you know my newest obsession is tea + milk. Okay, I feel like I got a lot of flack for posting that...I knew people had milk with their tea, but I had never had it myself. Everyone was leaving comments like, "DUH! I have been drinking my tea like that for years!" Okay, I get it! I'm late to the party - but I've never been a huge fan of tea until I tried it with milk and sugar! Some people were saying they thought that was the only way to have tea? Now I'm confused. I have a lot of friends who drink tea on a regular basis, and they do not add milk...sooo what's going on here? Needless to say tea is a touchy subject for many, lol! I need a new tea kettle, I had this one...but ruined it when I forgot to turn the burner off after we moved into our new house (new stove, different knobs than I was used to - oops). I love the modern look of this one a little better than the one I had. 

2. I'm obsessed with earrings, but haven't been wearing any recently. I purchased this pair from the big sale a few weeks ago, and love them! I had been wanting to try an ear jacket, and these did not disappoint (also love the price tag!). My all-time favorite earrings are designed by our friends Smith + Mara (friends in real life!). I met Mara a few years ago, and she was wearing the most amazing earring I had ever seen - when she told me she designed it herself, I was blown away. They started designing and selling them not long after that. They were the original "ear crawler" designers! Sadly, a lot of brands have since ripped off their designs, but theirs are still the best and they are constantly coming out with new ones (my all-time favorite is currently 70% off here). I'm wearing the "big dipper" ear crawler below. Speaking of earrings - did anyone see the RHOBH reunion? Yolanda's earrings were major! I have my ears double pierced, and it makes me want to wear 2 pairs again. 
love this ear jacket via

3. I made the most amazing soup last night - Chicken Avocado Lime, and have to share this recipe with you. It's SUPER simple (I cooked my chicken in the crock pot, then followed the rest of the recipe and added 1/3 cup cannellini beans), and so good! You should definitely try it this week. You can find the recipe here
 

One more thing...Saks is having their Friends & Family sale, be sure to use the code: FRNFAM at checkout! Hope you had a great weekend! xx

  6. Black teas are more commonly consumed with milk/sugar (ie English breakfast, etc), while herbal teas, green teas, etc are better off without.

    Hope that helps! :)
