Saturday Coffee & Dish

Happy Saturday!

Hubby’s birthday was February 24th and we celebrated with homemade pizza and cheesecake. I got him a gift subscription to Foot Cardigan, he’s going to get a new fun pair of socks in the mail each month!


Speaking of subscriptions. Have you tried Birchbox? Hubby got me a subscription for Christmas and I love trying new products each month and who doesn’t love getting fun mail?!

I got this eyeliner in my Birchbox back in January and I’ve been using it almost everyday! A lot of liquid eyeliners usually leave me frustrated with mix-matched eyes, but this one releases the right amount of product and the tip is firm enough that it gives you good control when applying it. That’s a win for me. I wear glasses most days so I love bold eyeliner to help make my eyes pop.

You know when you buy stuff for a craft project and you always have leftover supplies that aren’t useful for your next project, so I have an slightly out of control craft supply collection. My crafting goal for 2016 is to use up some of the supplies I already have. So last weekend I made these adorable succulents! I already had the vases and rocks, so all I had to do was pick up the succulents at the craft store. So for $5 and fifteen minutes of time I got these little cuties! IMG_8643

Last spring I purchased these earrings in the multi glitter while they were on sale. I love them and wear them multiple times a week! Last weekend I was at the outlets and found some smaller silver glitter studs on clearance and I couldn’t resist. I couldn’t find them online to link, but trust me they are adorable!

This week hubby and I started a weight loss competition for the next 9 weeks. I think it’s safe to say that I’m losing the competition. Sigh. We’re laying off the chocolate chip cookies and upping our runs at the gym. We’re using the couch to 5k program and I have a love/hate relationship with it. One of the things that makes me like running a little bit more is cute running clothes. I picked up a new pair of these shorts in a fun print over the weekend!

Ok, this month I’m having a hard time picking a favorite recipe. These Double Dark Chocolate Muffins are amazingly moist and chocolaty! Or this Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake which is chewy and delicious!  I give up, I can’t choose. Have you tried either of these yet?

Last month I asked my Facebook friends if anyone had a donut pan I could borrow and someone gave me one! We’ve had donuts 3 times so far and I think I’m hooked! Look for some yummy donut recipes in the next couple months.
