Who doesn’t love a ripe rich tomato in the summer. I sliced one up yesterday morning for my omelet and the feeling of joy came over me. It was just so rich and colorful. It tasted out of this world.
I am really lucky to live in a community that has daily farmer markets from April-October. We also subscribe to a weekly produce box from a local farming co-op. Fresh local fruit and vegetables are not a scarce item in our home during that time. This week, we had a yellow watermelon in our produce box. It was the first time we had one, and it was delish. It isn’t as sweet as your traditional watermelon, but my entire family enjoyed it. No fancy preparation; I just cut it up and we devoured it.
Here is a salad recipe that includes yellow watermelon, tomatoes and cucumber. What are some of your favorite summer produce?
Recently I noticed that my skin had lost some of its glow. I felt that my complexion looked very dull. I had really slacked off of my nightly skin regime, which includes face washing, application of various face and eye lotions, and the hope is not enough face serum.
With in about a week of using the serum again, my face’s glow was back. There is something in this sweet little bottle that just works. I am never going to stop using it. I swear there is magic in there. What product in your beauty regimen can you not live without?
This past weekend my husband and I saw The Dark Knight Rises. We have been waiting for this film for a long time. It really exceeded our high expectations. If you haven’t seen it I urge you to please go see it. It will not disappoint. Here is a good Entertainment Weekly article to read before going. It recaps key events of the previous films. It does not contain any spoilers of the new film. It is safe :)!
Two characters really stood out for me. One was that of Selina Kyle aka Catwoman. Anne Hathaway was perfect. She sizzled! Seeing her in the Catwoman jumpsuit definitely has motivated me to spend a little more time at the gym. Here is an article on how Anne got into Catwoman shape.
John Blake was the other character that left a lasting impression. I love Joseph Gordon-Levitt. I think he is a great actor. I have enjoyed all his performances that I have seen. He will likely be holding an Oscar sometime in the future. His character was a breath of fresh air in a city filled with corruption and chaos. He filled the role of an average beat cop with a big heart very well.
I hope you all have a great week! xoxo
