Tuesday Ten: Fun Pajamas

Hello There! This week's edition of Tuesday Ten will feature some of my favorite PJ's that I have been seeing lately. The best thing about them is that they are fun, cute, flirty, and most importantly inexpensive. These pajamas are all from Forever21 and they all range from $10-$20.00, a steal!!

4th Of July Fashion

Hi Everyone!! I hope your Monday is going well. I wanted to do a post about "what to wear" for the upcoming holiday! I am super excited to spend time with family and friends and get our "EAT" on. I created a few outfit ideas that I just love, whether you are going for a casual look or something a bit fancy.  I personally would probably wear outfit #1 since we are just going to a BBQ!

Share-A-Chef

Happy Hump Day Everyone!
Today I am super excited because my sister and her two kiddos are hopping in the car and headed to NY for our younger brother's graduation. She and the boys will be staying with me for a couple days and I can't wait to see them all. So for this week's Share-A-Chef recipe I decided to whip up my favorite chocolate chip cookies. This recipe comes from a classic chef, Ms. Martha Stewart. I also am sharing my recipe with SweetCheeks and Momfessionals so make sure you check out what they are cookin' in their kitchens. 

Thanks Everyone,

KP




INGREDIENTS 

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature 
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar 
  • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar 
  • 1 teaspoon salt 
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 
  • 2 large eggs 
  • 2 cups (about 12 ounces) semisweet and/or milk chocolate chips 

DIRECTIONS 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter with both sugars; beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low; add the salt, vanilla, and eggs. Beat until well mixed, about 1 minute. Add flour mixture; mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. 
  2. Drop heaping tablespoon-size balls of dough about 2 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper. 
  3. Bake until cookies are golden around the edges, but still soft in the center, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool on baking sheet 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely. Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.

Jessica Murphy was actually recommended to me by a friend and I was so happy she mentioned her to me. I immediately subscribed and haven't regret it since. Jessica is a teacher so I know she is super busy, but she always has videos up without fail, I love that about her! Her focus is makeup reviews, demos,  hauls, unboxings and a little bit of lifestyle as well. She is very sweet and welcoming and I am sure you will enjoy her just as much as I do!


6. Ingrid Nilsen (Find her here)
I have been watching Ingrid for quite some time and I have always enjoyed her videos. Her focus is beauty, fashion, healthy food, how to's and everything else in between. She recently posted a video about being gay and I thought it was incredibly brave of her. I am so happy that now she can "give herself the best chance" Ingrid Nilsen.

Fleur is simply AMAZING! Between her accent, her style and her personality she is the perfect YouTuber! Her focus is on beauty, fashion, tutorials, and a little bit of Lifestyle!

I have been watching Tiffany for years. She really has progressed lovely since her beginning days. Her channel focuses on makeup, fashion, decor, hauls, and tutorials. I feel she has a little bit of everything.  She recently had a baby girl and during the pregnancy she did vlogs once a week. I thought it was a great way to document her pregnancy and it was cool to watch all the experiences she went through.
