Salmon Salad, FTW

I’ve been making a huge effort in bringing my lunch to work to make sure I keep it healthy. I was steaming shrimp or making chicken to put on my salads, but to change it up I started using smoked salmon. How could I not have thought of this sooner? DELICIOUS. Just a little pepper on it, no dressing needed. Enjoy.

Good Morning, Southie

Over the weekend I went for an early morning walk near my apartment. Bay or not, I love that I live so close to the water.  Sure there are plenty of things I may not like about living in Southie, but this is high on my list of “likes.” Seeing this is a great way to start a spring day. It seems crazy to think downtown Boston is literally about 2 miles away.

Simple Sensitive Skin

I recently received some Simple Sensitive Skin products from Klout.

Simple Sensitive Skin

I have really sensitive combination skin with patches that are oily and patches that are really dry. Really, really dry. the moisturizer worked well to help combat the drier parts without making my skin oily. The facial wipes also did a great job of removing makeup. All in all, the isn’t something I necessarily would have purchased to try, but now I would.

I was given a free product or sample because I’m a Klout influencer. I was under no obligation to receive the sample or talk about this company. I get no additional benefits for talking about the product or company.

Late Night Snacks

I take pride in the fact that I’ve been eating healthy lately. I’ve cut back on a lot of sugar (my indisputable weakness: Mike & Ike’s) and carbs (my other weakness…maybe even more so than the previous). I’ve added a lot of protein. All that went out the window last night when Sean and I decided we wanted “something sweet” around 11pm.

For Christmas I was given a baking set from Sur La Table for homemade donuts, complete with mixing bowl, donut baking tray, spatula and mix. While I’ve used the utensils, I hadn’t used the mix…seemed like a good time.

They were delicious. Only problem is now I have a bunch of donuts in my kitchen. I want them to go away, but not because I ate them all. 😉

Hey, a little splurge now and again is OK, right?
