i am a bougie girl: Spontaneous Date Night Ensemble

Earlier this evening, Chef T invited me out for a quick dinner before his night class. Upon receiving his text, I was rockin' some yoga pants and a stretched out t-shirt. Luckily, I took a shower this morning, so all I had to do was brush out my hair, throw on a cute outfit, and add a little lipstick.

The cold weather made me decide against doing the dress and tall boots route. Jeans and a  crew neck sweater felt a little too casual for a Friday night outing. I compromised and wore a black poncho with light gray slacks, black high heeled loafers, and a belted black coat. 

The look was stylish yet comfortable  and it kept me warm from the blustery February winds.

I am a bougie girl:Mane-BEFORE & AFTER

No automatic alt text available.
BEFORE. I was getting my hair washed and blown out every other week.
After a few days, my fresh from the salon look faded away.  Windy days used to have a different affect on my hair.
AFTER. I am getting my hair washed and blown out every week. Now, my hair is thriving because of the weekly appointments. Also, auburn highlights help to add more glamour to my look.
    

Warmer temperatures in February brought me outside for a quick lunchtime stroll. The surprisingly balmy breezes whipped my natural mane into a bit of frenzy.

i am a bougie girl: Daylight Date Night

Chef T and I are celebrating Valentine's Day a little bit early. We kicked off our Valentine's Day celebration with a hearty breakfast cooked up by Chef T. Later in the day, we are going to catch a matinee of "Hidden Figures" and then end our romantic day with a quiet dinner.


It took us all of 20 minutes to hammer out all of the logistics of today's activities. I prefer a daylight date to celebrate Valentine's Day because venues are less crowded and it is more economical.

i am a bougie girl: Color Swatches

 :

Lately, I have noticed an uptick in my creative inspiration. I credit this recent surge of creativity to my snapping  and posting photos of a variety of color swatches.

I  have started a Pinterest board dedicated to Color Swatches

I try to update this board at least a couple of times a week

i am a bougie girl: SuperBowl Snack Plate

Earlier this week, Chef T and his dog came over to watch the SuperBowl. I decided to incorporate some healthier food onto the snack menu.


I served sauteed Baby Bella mushrooms, garlic flavored naan bread, cubed Mozzarella, beef sliders and Yukon gold potatoes. Chef T enjoyed his meal and we spent the remainder of the game cheering on the Atlanta Falcons. (Alas, our cheers were not enough to bring them a victory.)

i am a bougie girl: Cooking Lessons With Chef T

Chef T has agreed to teach me the ins and outs of Midwestern cooking. (Stay tuned for a more detailed blogpost on this topic.)

My cooking style can be best described as a fusion of the exotic with a bit of the mundane. I have been known to add capers to frozen pizzas and tater tots.


He has a more straightforward approach to culinary pursuits. He uses a few simple ingredients and goes from there.

This handmade scarf became part of my trosseau back in 2007. I have one in brown and magenta. These scarves were made for me by a friend of a friend.
