My Life: Binge Watching #YoungerTV


Screen Shot 2016-01-13 at 12.53.47 PM

Ahh! I am so excited for tonight! One of my favorite shows, Younger, is having their season 2 premiere at 9:00! I’ve been binge watching season 1 all morning while I work in preparation for tonight! I’m not going to lie, Hilary Duff is what drew me in in the first place. I mean who doesn’t want to relive their Lizzy McGuire childhood a little bit? Am I the only one? Lol!

If you’ve never seen the show before, it’s about this hilarious 40 year old woman who gets divorced and needs a job to support herself and her daughter after taking years off to raise her. She has to pretend to be 26 in order to land a job that she wants in social media and the rest is just hilarious! TV Land has absolutely KILLED it with this show and I highly recommend setting your DVR if you can’t be home:)

Anyways, I am back to working, planning, and binge watching! See you all tonight in TV Land!

Easy Crock Pot Tortilla Soup

Crock Pot Tortilla Soup

Tortilla soup is one of my absolute favorite things to get at a Mexican restaurant. I love the simplicity of it all, and it doesn’t make me feel quite as full and bloated as all of the other Mexican dishes I love so much. I have been making tortilla soup in the crock pot for years now and have JUST about perfected my version. It’s healthy and light and can easily be made paleo or whole30 for those of us that are in to that sort of thing! When I’m being a good paleo girl, I tend to make the entire soup minus the beans and corn and then add those items to Wes’ soup since he likes them. What a good wife I am:)
Crock Pot Tortilla Soup

  • 2-4 Chicken breasts (depending on amount of servings you want)

Jamberries For Christmas

DSC_5387

Pedicures are one of my favorite ways to relax. I usually try to get one once a month or so, at least before any big events. It’s a very rare day that I ever get a manicure to go with that pedicure though. I sometimes paint my nails myself, but I don’t waste my $$$ on a manicure because I know myself and I will IMMEDIATELY mess it up or pick at it and then be mad at myself. Well, I have found a new obsession! Janet over at Jamberry nails contacted me and offered to send me some to try out! OMG! I love them! They have lasted me an entire week now and for me that is unheard of!

They are super easy to apply once you have done the first couple and gotten a hang of it. Just pick the size you need for each nail and cut off half of it. You stick it on your nail, and then I used a nail clipper and nail file to make the decal fit onto my nail perfectly. I picked the Christmas socks and Friday Flannel ones because I needed a little Christmas spirit in my life, but I am really diggin’ these polka dot and floral ones too. Oh, and just an FYI, Jamberries are all Buy 3 get one free, so you can get all of your favorites!

Janet has so graciously decided to give away some Jamberries to one lucky All That Glitter reader, so enter through the Rafflecopter below and cross those pretty little fingers that you win some for yourself to try!

Mustard & Teal

Fall felt hat with jewel tone outft

When I bought this skirt at Old Navy back in September, I had about 10 outfits in my mind for it. This has been my favorite and I have already worn it multiple times. I wore it in London to walk around, on Thanksgiving for dinner with the family, and a few time just because! My favorite part is the mix of colors. Jewel tones go so well together and these are three of my favorites. This burgundy Rebecca Minkoff bag has been one of my best purchases! I was so worried that the burgundy would make it less likely to be worn, but it has been quite the opposite and I wear it all the time!Mustard and teal outfit for fall Mustard Old Navy Skirt with Teal top Jewel tones for fall Teal and Mustard fall outfit Mustard, teal, and burgundy

A Little Bit About London & Gold Glitter

Black and gold with burgundy

This is an outfit I wore when we went out in London one night. I wanted to get some REALLY good Shepard’s pie since it’s my favorite, and what better place than London to find the best! Well, we looked it up online and found an article saying that The Ivy had one of the best, so we made a reservation. I have to say, it was REALLY good. If you like Shepard’s pie, I highly recommend. I also recommend getting a Strawberry Daiquiri here! It was a scoop of strawberry sorbet in the alcohol, one of the most interesting and delicious drinks I have ever had!

Well, anyways, this was the outfit I wore to the restaurant and I think it fit in well with the unique London styles they have going on over there! I brought a few pairs of my Kushyfoot tights to wear with all of my outfits since it does get much chillier than I am used to here in Austin. It worked out super well that I could still wear some skirts and stay warm at the same time. You’ve definitely heard me talk about Kushyfoot tights before if you’ve been around here long enough because I am a HUGE fan! They have so many different colors and textures, it makes switching up your wardrobe and extending the life of your clothes through different seasons so much easier! I highly recommend checking them out if you need to add some tights or socks to your fall and winter wardrobe!

Hope you are all having a fantastic weekend! Stay warm out there!
