Moving on from ickiness this to bigger and better things---croissants! They worked! I made homemade croissants that were delish and didn't burn or deflate. I used this recipe for the dough and then this one for the butter croissants and this one for the chocolate croissants. The recipes said the dough yielded much more than I was able to get but maybe because mine were huge?! LOL Hubs didn't seem to mind. (Note: If you use this recipe, start with only 3 cups of flour, adding more if needed. Mine were really dry the first time I tried it with the full flour amounts). Another item off of my bucket list---funny all of the items crossed off are food related---hehe.
Here is my croissant journey in pictures:
If you look closely, you can see all of the butter and layers in the raw, rolled pictures. I am usually not one to eat so "buttery" but these were really good. I didn't get a picture of the chocolate but they were tasty too. I'm so excited. I think this recipe will be perfect for a yummy weekend breakfast. They are time consuming but so worth it--yay!
This was my outfit for yesterday. I got this top at Banana this weekend and its cute and comfy--love it!
Pants: Ann Taylor
Top: Banana Republic
Shoes: Banana Republic
Makeup: I did a gray, green crease with a shimmery mint in the inner corner.
Lips: This is the NARS Turkish Delight that I purchased this weekend. I really like how light it is. I think it's a nice neutral pink.
While at Sephora, I got a sample of Sephora's Brand Mascara in Atomic Volume. I gave it a try on Sunday (when I had no other eye makeup on). The mascara wand has very distinct bristles and it actually felt like I was brushing out my lashes. It gave me a really separated lash look---just for the heck of it---here is a pic:
I hope everyone has an awesome Tuesday. Just writing this to all you fabulous readers has improved my mood---now if only time would fly by...
