Thursday's Fab Five

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching & I love being at home on the weeknights cooking dinner and catching up on my favorite shows.  Don't you?! 

The weather has been so weird here in D.C., first it was warm and gross, now it's cold and clammy.  I honestly can't keep up with it, and neither can my sinuses!!  The beginning of the week was chilly & rainy, it legit felt like January and gave me the worst sinus headache.  So annoying.

I can't wait to have off from work tomorrow and drive up to NJ for a wedding!  My good friend Mike...we've been friends since pre-k 4, can you believe that...is getting married!!!  It's going to be such an epic celebration, so make sure you're following along on both Snapchat (@elizabethmayce) and Instagram stories, @elizabethmayce!

Here are some things I've been loving recently, some classic favorites and some new goodies too.  Tweet me some favorites of yours @elizabethmayce!

Recipe Wednesday: Taco Tuesday Chicken + Avo-Corn Salsa

Okay, okay, I know, I'm sharing a Taco Tuesday recipe on a Wednesday...

...but really this recipe could work any day of the week, obviously, & I think it would be particularly spectacular on Football Sunday while watching your team.

This recipe is originally from Chelsea's Messy Apron, but I put my own flair on it...and literally just used what I already had in my fridge.  I didn't go shopping for anything in this delicious recipe, I was honestly just trying to use some things up and remembered the original recipe I had seen.  That avocado- corn salsa...omg yum.

Sunday Things: Photo Share


Does anyone else have this feeling...or is it only me?????
I'm pretty sure it's not only me.

Anyway, I haven't posted in a while, life is totally in the way.  Also, I've been so in love with the products I've been using for a while now, and I haven't really switched anything up...which is so unlike me...and doesn't really give me anything to write about!!  Ugh.

I'm usually the ultimate time manager, and as far as teaching goes I still am, but I've realized that for the past month I've totally gotten off track in every other aspect of my life.  So, my big focus this weekend has been to rebalance myself, get some great posts written, and get back to being on my #girlboss grind.

This past month has been so busy and fun, so here's a sneak peek of everything I've been doing lately. 

I decided to take myself out to lunch before an appointment one Friday, I'd been wanting to try Barley Mac in Arlington for a while, so I hopped in and sat at the bar with my book.  I wanted to try a few things, and I knew a pizza would be perfect to take home as leftovers, so I started with the Caesar salad, and then had one of their popular pizzas...the Fresh Fig Prosciutto & Goat Cheese, sans figs because I'm not really a fig gal.  Everything was so delicious!!  I especially loved the cucumber margarita, it was so beautiful and tasted delicious on a Fri-yay afternoon.  If you're in the Arlington, VA area for a day of shopping...or doctor appointments...stop by Barley Mac for lunch!

Lifestyle: So, Should I Think About Buying a Car?

[This is a sponsored post in collaboration with Cars.com.  All opinions are my own.]

I was speaking with a friend the other day about how she's thinking of getting a new car since hers has been giving her trouble lately.  As we were talking I was thinking, when is the right time for me to start brainstorming of new car ideas?  I've been so lucky with my Mercedes, but as it gets older, and racks up the miles (240,000 so far), I know the reality of me needing to purchase a car in the future is real.  Collective sigh.

So, while I know buying a car in the super near future is def not on my to do list, it doesn't hurt to start thinking about the process, and what I should be prepared for.  I've teamed up with Cars.com to think through some key points I need to write down for when that time comes, and I'm hoping my POV of a twenty-something young professional is helpful to any of my readers that may be going through this process, or are like me and are at least getting prepared.

Simplicity Skincare's Reversal Protection Complex Review

I love working with new brands, I've truly never had a bad experience, get introduced to new & innovative skincare, and help small businesses spread the word about their products.  Simplicity Skincare is a bit different from any other brand I've recently partnered with...they have one product, that claims to cover all the skincare routine bases.  Too good to be true right?  Not so fast...
