Suits and Songs

I thought it would be fun to pair bathing suits with summer jams that come to mind when I see them.  You know, for no reason in particular other than it giving me an excuse to bathing suit shop online.

Canadian Girls by The Walkmen

Summertime by Janis Joplin

Suffragette City by David Bowie

Natural's Not In It by Gang of Four

Animal by Miike Snow

Ho Hey by The Lumineers

Bones by The Killers
Check out the songs online if you're interested in hearing them, and the suits are all linked to a site where they can be purchased.  I'll take one of each, por favor!

Arkansas in Oregon

So fellas, we just got in the Arkansas Mid Lace boot by Frye and I just wanted to give you guys a bit of fashion advice. This boot will be your perfect non-work boot work boot.  Wear it with a pair of relaxed, straight leg dark jeans and cuff 'em. Pair them with a button up...solid or print, and make sure you iron and starch your shirt and throw in a matching pocket square for good measure. Get yourself a chocolate brown belt to match the boots, and you're good to go.

Like this.

Mmmmm, and like this, but you know, with boots.

Very sexy.

Somebody Make Me: Buffalo Chicken Rolls

As you know, I have major feelings for Frank's Red Hot sauce, so naturally a hot pocket-esque thing that contains it would appeal to me.  Furthermore, I support food that is perfect for eating in bed while gettin' my Hulu on.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you...BUFFALO CHICKEN ROLLS! BOW DOWN TO YOUR QUEEN!

Buffalo Chicken Rolls

(adapted from Can You Stay for Dinner?)

{I didn't take step by step pictures, but you can find some great ones on Andie's blog using the above link.}

3/4 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (about 2 cups)
1 cup hot sauce
12 egg roll wrappers
1 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/2 cup celery, thinly sliced
nonstick cooking spray
blue cheese or ranch dressing, for serving

Preheat oven to 400 F. Set a wire rack inside a rimmed baking sheet and spray the rack with cooking spray.

Stir the chicken and hot sauce together in a medium bowl until moistened - you can use more or less sauce depending on how spicy you want your rolls.

Place one egg roll wrapper on a clean work surface. Add about 1 tablespoon of the celery on the diagonal of the bottom right corner. Top with about 2-3 tablespoons of the chicken, and finally some blue cheese crumbles. Be careful not to overfill the wrappers.

To fold the roll: Bring the bottom right corner up and over the filling to cover it completely and make it snug. Fold each side over to form an envelope, then roll the wrap almost all the way to the top. Wet your finger with water and moisten the top corner, then fold it over the roll, pressing to seal. Place the roll on the prepared rack.

Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.

Spray each roll lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Bake for 15-20 minutes (flipping the rolls halfway through), or until the rolls are golden brown and crisp. Allow to cool for a few minutes, then serve with either blue cheese or ranch dressing.

Whoever brings me these soon shall have my heart for a thousand years.

DIY: Chalkboard Paint!

Years ago I came across an image (the first one below) where an accent wall was painted not with some unique, bright color, but with chalkboard paint.  The options are limitless.  You can draw decor on that wall if you want.  You can write quotes.  You can let your kid doodle on it.  You can use it for notes and reminders.  I mean, whatever the hell you want.  Since then, I've seen people use chalkboard paint on everything.  Mugs, wine glass bases, pots, refrigerators...you name it.

I found these pictures to be pretty inspirational:







It seems that Hudson makes some pretty good chalkboard paint and they even offer color options besides the classic black and dark green.  Spray chalkboard paint sounds like it works pretty well on smaller projects, especially where there are little crevasses (i.e. a skull).   Sheesh, you can even make your own paint by using the ingredients below...


Pretty cool, right? I decided I'm going to purchase a large piece of wood to paint and to prop against an empty wall in my bedroom.  What are you going to put chalkboard paint on, DIY'ers?
