Recipe Wednesday: Fall Cooking Bucket List

Even though it's still quite warm in D.C. I'm totally in the mood for fall, and I cannot wait to cook some great new things with the change in season.  I've been searching all over the web for some new, out of the box, recipes to try & I'm sharing them here, with you today!

Fall screams soup to me, and  I personally love having soup & salad for dinner with some nice fresh bread.  This One-Pot Tomato and Basil Tortellini Soup, created by Gal on a Mission, looks so delish, and I can switch out store bought tomato sauce for my homemade one.


Cooking Classy's One Pan Autumn Chicken Dinner sounds too good and easy to be true, I love it!  Being able to throw all of those yummy things onto a pan, and into the oven, only to have it come out looking so incredible, is a perfect ending to a mid-week work day.  The flavors of Brussel sprouts, apples, and bacon, would taste amazing.  Such a quick & flavorful fall dinner.

A little drink addition for Football Sunday, the Recipe Rebel's Slow Cooker Cranberry Apple Cider would be incredible spiked while watching the football games, or having friends over on a Saturday night.  I can only imagine what my apartment would smell like with the cinnamon and ground cloves slow cooked for 3+ hours.

Cocinando Con Alena's Slow Cooker Pot Roast is described as "melt in your mouth", which makes me want to run to Trader Joes and buy a pot roast right now.  I can also see myself making this on Football Sunday...guess I need two slow cookers!
 I would love to just sit and eat The Night Owl's Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake Dip while drinking a nice glass of wine... on a Tuesday night.  Ya know, when you feel like it should already be Friday!  Serving these with graham crackers and fruit...AH, so yum.

Givenchy Acti'me Color Correcting Primer

If you've been reading LLB for a while now, you'll notice I talk quite a bit about which products I use to calm, combat, and hide, my rosacea.  Even though my skincare game is on point in keeping it at bay, it's still sometimes visible, depending on the weather some days worse than others.  When I do my makeup I don't want to have to wear a ton of concealer (ps: see my review of my favorite, NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, hereto hide the redness, so on days that aren't so great I reach for my Givenchy Acti'me Color Correcting Primer in Acti Kiwi.

I used to be a huge fan of the Smashbox Photo Finish Color Correcting Primer (ps: read my review, here), which is still one of my faves, but when I saw this Givenchy Color Correcting Primer, I was really interested in giving it a try.

Recipe Wednesday: Veggie Orzo Summer Salad

This veggie orzo salad is perfect to whip up on a lazy & hot Sunday afternoon, it'll be perfectly chilled for dinner time & perfect for leftovers all week!

If it even makes it past 2 days, it's so good!

I originally saw this recipe over on Two Peas & Their Pod, a recipe blog I love.  I loved the idea, was bored, had all the ingredients, and was ready to go.  Being that I love love love flavor and all types of fun additions, I made my own version of this salad and it was outstanding!

Thursday's Fab Five

It's such a weird time of me wanting summer to be over, and fall to be starting, it's kind of getting annoying.  I've been trying a ton of new products lately and I've bought some fun new things for my home, so I'm excited to share five with you this week!

Budget Beauty: Nugg Face Masks

One day while perusing the skincare aisles of the bank account killer, but soul gratifier, Target, these cute little face mask packets appeared in my line of view.  I had heard about them for a while, but never purchased, so I figured, let's make today the day I actually try these nügg face masks!

nügg, a cruelty free, natural oil & extract skincare brand, makes a line of face masks that cover a variety of concerns.  Each mask is sold in a little pod, which makes them an ideal face mask to travel with...or just use on a Spa Sunday perhaps.
