Tidbits Tuesday: What I'm loving Now

Hi friends!

So this is my first Tidbits Tuesday feature and I have tons of things I am loving at the moment that I want to share with you. But, for the sake of time, I am only going to share 8. 4 random, non beauty items and 4 beauty items. Here is what I am loving the most this week:

My sister in law pinned this amazing pan of 'yummyness' on pintrest and I just had to try it out. It is called Baked Cheesy Chicken Penne and you can find the full recipe here. I made this for my husband last night and it was great. I usually don't toot my own horn but it was so totally restaurant worthy. I'm accepting applications as I type this. I kid, I kid.

If you know me, you know I have a teeny, tiny obsession with Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge. How could you not? (Lauran, I know you will appreciate this.) While I don't think it is fair that the associated press hounds her for baby bump pictures, I am guilty of scouring the internet for her latest pop ups. I don't know about y'all, but I am just dying to see what she wears for her maternity. This is not the last thing you will hear from me about this chick. She pretty much rocks.

I seriously can't believe I am admitting that I watch this. My husband and I both do. I have found this season to be so intense. Drama, drama, drama. All jokes aside, how many of you watch this and are looking forward to next week's episode when supposidly Desiree's brother and Sean get into a physical altercation? I know I am. Bring it. So glad I don't have to watch Tierra's eyebrow raise anymore by the way.

Turn on some Bachelor and let me pop one of these in the oven and I am set. If you haven't tried this exact frozen pizza, get off your butt (and your diet) and run to the store....as fast as you can. I am seriously addicted to this and have to have it at least once a week. Maybe this is a good thing to give up for lent? Or maybe I will just vow everytime I eat one to do a few sit ups. That'll do. Thank me later.


THIS STUFF SMELLS SO GOOD. Perfect for Valentine's Day. I'm not sure if it is a new scent but I picked mine up at Beauty Brands a little while ago and decided to save it for the month of February. No reason in particular, I just wanted something festive. It retails for $24.00 and can be used as a shampoo, bath & shower gel. I love Philosopy. Every one of their scents leaves you feeling fresh and girly. I am also in the market for some Soap and Glory body wash however, I can't find any store that sells it and I want to smell it before I buy it. If you have an idea where I can get some, leave me a comment!

My mom bought me this Mac Paint Pot in the color Constructivist. (Thanks mum!) This has become a holy grail item in my makeup routine. It can be used as an eyeshadow primer or or a cream shadow. It is a warm brown with a slight shimmer and is so flattering. I really like a smokey eye and my favorite way to create that effect is with brown colors. Hit up your local Mac and try it out. They have a lot of other colors too!


I seriously bought this Laura Mercier Lip Stain so long ago. I have recently discovered it again from my makeup collection. I think when I first bought it, I was trying to be brave and wear deep lip colors. Then I stopped being brave and put it away. Well, I am back being brave again. It is in the color Mulberry. It can be applied with your finger or a lip brush. My personal preference is to apply it with my index finger because it is more of a stain so I want it to go on lighter. I love how matte it is! I hope you will try it out and let me know what you think!
I could not find a picture of this Chanel Glossimer on the internet for the life of me so I snapped a pic of my own. I hope you can tell what color it is. (I tried to take a picture under natural light.) This is a deep magenta/purple color perfect for Winter! I have been using it a lot lately during the day and night even though it is really pigmented. For the record, I don't usually spend money on luxury beauty products like this. I think this was a Christmas present from my sister-in-law a year ago. I love this purple color with my blonde hair but I could totally see it on a brunette as well. Love this!

So those are 8 of my favorite things this week. Leave me a comment and tell me what you are loving this week. I always like to see what others are coveting.
