The Marshawn Evans and Jack Daniels Wedding

coupleI’ve been watching Marshawn Evans as a coach for years (she was a former contestant on The Apprentice) and when she got engaged to Jack Daniels I started following him as well. It was so amazing how their purposes collided. When she started planning her wedding I was so excited for her, even their countdown to the wedding photos were so cute. I didn’t attend but I am familiar with several people who did. I wish them nothing but love, long life and happiness as they go forth in their purpose together. After all that’s what the Love Better Institute is all about.

The Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross Wedding

You’ve got to give it to the paparazzi for getting the photo scoop. Granted the photos are grainy, however, it’s either that or getting no photos at all. It appears that many of the celebs are doing the same thing, leaving no proof that they were married, so it’s really left up to family, friends or anyone who can sneak a photo to capture the moment. It looks like Ashlee and Evan are in great company with Gabrielle and Dwayne and Jenny and Donnie. Congrats all!

The Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg Wedding

jennymccarthyweddingSherrie Shepherd attended Jenny McCarthy’s wedding to Donnie Wahlberg this past Sunday (August 31, 2014). Just like Gabrielle and Dwayne this is the second marriage for Jenny and Donnie as well. The two have been dating a little over a year. “The very first time I saw him, I was in the eighth grade and New Kids on the Block was on MTV,” McCarthy has said of Wahlberg’s boy band days. “I thought Donnie was the hottest one.” Donnie’s brother Mark didn’t make the ceremony, however, he did post a video wishing the couple well. We’re happy for them too. Love is in the air!

The Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade Wedding

The Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade WeddingGabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade tied the knot on August 30, 2014. I remember years ago when the blogs started reporting that Gabrielle was dating Dwayne she denied it and lashed out at bloggers in general, but finally she came out with it. Nevertheless, I love to celebrate marriage and I say congrats to anyone who is willing to say, “I love you enough to marry you!” My thought process is please learn how to make a marriage last. Wishing them the best. this is the second marriage for both of them. Uhh, that’s an adorable 8.5 cushion cut ring too!

gwan_jypsea

This past Saturday I was feeling quite stylish in a FAB romper from G’wan by Charon and a GORGE leather and lace belt from Terina Nicole of Jypsea Leather Goods. I’ve been excited to pair them together for a while now. Their styles mesh so well. I made the announcement online that it was inevitable that their styles would meet. I’m just sayin’.

There Truly Is a Bra For Everything

I received an Aerie gift card as part of my relationship with the Quality Blue Community. All opinions expressed are my own.

Just when you thought that your one “staple” bra could make do and go from dropping off the kids at school, to your 9-5 day at work, to running errands, picking up the kids and figuring out dinner and then occasionally date night and everything else in between, you discover that there is truly a bra for everything! Gone are the days of wearing the same sad bra under every outfit and trying to workout in it too only to find that it’s not giving you the kind of coverage that you need. As summer approached and my wardrobe expanded I found myself in this very dilemma, what do I wear under the cute spaghetti strap sundress or strapless sundresses and Aerie solves that for you. What I love the most is that their selections are old-fashion and stuff, they’re fun, hip and will incorporate easily into the trendy wardrobes that many of us already have.

aerieJust like fashion is ever changing every true fashionista should have a bra to fit every style she loves and Aerie has just what you need to stock your wardrobe with the best bras out there. Just check out their 9 Bras that Every Girls Needs chart above (see the full graphic and read more tips on Aerie’s blog). My absolute favorites from their charts are the full coverage that I normally wear under almost anything (and you’ll probably pick it as a favorite too), the demi, that I mostly reserve for date night with hubby and the “bare” that comes in handy for my evening and summer strapless outfits. This is definitely a style to choose when you still want major coverage. Oh and definitely the “sports” for my morning walks and sometimes runs!

I’d love to know: How many bras do you own? Which of these 9 are your favorites? Which do you really need to purchase but haven’t gotten around to just yet?

The Best and Fluffiest Buttermilk Pancakes Ever!

buttermilk_pancake_recipeSix Figure Life is all about pancakes!

My husband loves pancakes. I mean adores them. He can eat them with sausage, bacon, fried chicken, you name it. He can even eat them solo. His favorite recipe so far is one he found from Martha Stewart. She says the secret to fluffy pancakes is to not overmix the batter.

This is Martha Stewars’s Buttermilk Pancake Recipe below and it’s relatively easy:

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 3 cups buttermilk
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus 1/2 teaspoon for griddle
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries (optional)

Directions:

  1. Step 1

    Heat griddle to 375 degrees. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a medium bowl. Add eggs, buttermilk and 4 tablespoons butter; whisk to combine. Batter should have small to medium lumps.

  2. Step 2

    Heat oven to 175 degrees. Test griddle by sprinkling a few drops of water on it. If water bounces and spatters off griddle, it is hot enough. Using a pastry brush, brush remaining 1/2 teaspoon of butter or reserved bacon fat onto griddle. Wipe off excess.

  3. Step 3

    Using a 4-ounce ladle, about 1/2 cup, pour pancake batter, in pools 2 inches away from one other. Scatter with berries, if using. When pancakes have bubbles on top and are slightly dry around edges, about 2 1/2 minutes, flip over. Cook until golden on bottom, about 1 minute.

  4. Step 4

    Repeat with remaining batter, keeping finished pancakes on a heatproof plate in oven. Serve warm.

I serve my pancakes with sliced strawberries and whipped butter. My husband loves his butter melted so it can soak into the pancakes. Either way you like them, enjoy!
