» 10 Tasty, Easy and Healthy Breakfast Ideas

You get up in the morning, you rush to get ready for work, you rush out the door without a breakfast. Perhaps you grab a bagel and cream cheese, perhaps a muffin, perhaps an Egg McMuffin. If you’re lucky, you get a pastry, a hearty breakfast of pancakes and sausage and eggs, or an English fry-up. Unfortunately, when it comes to being healthy, none of these options is a great way to start your day. Several readers asked about healthy breakfast ideas, and in truth, it’s a dilemma that many of us face each day. The first problem is a problem, because it means that you start the day with an empty stomach. The second problem is also a real problem, because traditional breakfasts don’t usually come in healthy flavors. Too sugary or carb-filled. What does that leave us with? But how do you find the time? Oatmeal, flaxseed, blueberries & almonds. Kashi Golean Crunch. Scrambled tofu. Fresh berries, yogurt, granola.

Sarah at Welcome to the Good Life

Call me a big nerd but my heart's pounding because i'm so excited and honored to be here!!! My name is Sarah and i keep a blog over at Welcome to the gOOd life. it's a diary written by me (and sometimes by my hilarious husband) of the good and the ugly as a wife, a stay at home mom, raising two kids under three-just a year apart, and also my weekly DIY sewing projects. so should we get on to my DIY project? Inspiration: squeezebox top from anthropologie picture from an anthropologie review blog. i think i literally gasped when i saw this top online. i instantly fell in love and knew i had to have it! I bought 2 white shirts, one in xs which is my size and one in large. i got the large shirt in round neck for more fabric while i got the xs in a scoopneck. you'll need: 2 shirts scissors matching thread pins estimated time: 1-2 hrs. project cost: very reasonable(mine was $8 for both shirts) skill level: advanced beginner to intermediate 3. take one of the piece and begin making the pleates.

Stenciled Watercolors Tutorial. At the suggestion of a friend, I am posting a tutorial on how to make a nice watercolor painting using plastic stencils!

Stenciled Watercolors Tutorial

It really is quite a simple process and you end up with something that looks professional. I love sharing these little secrets with people. It's fun! So here is what you need to get started... Materials: watercolor paints paintbrush plastic stencils (I found some cheap ones at the dollar store) watercolor paper Step 1: Pick out the stencil you want to use and place it on top of your paper. Step 2: Hold the stencil down tightly with one hand. Step 3: To give it a varied look, add several different colors in random areas of the stencil. Step 4: Fill in the entire area of the stencil and ever so carefully lift the stencil away from the paper.

Step 5: Let your painting dry completely and there you have it... your own mini artwork! Tips and Tricks:If you notice that your watercolors are bleeding around the edges of the stencil you can try mixing less water with the paints. {she made it} jersey weave sweatshirt.

We pretty much got snowed in so during nap time I thought i'd scratch this little diy off my to-do list... This was the inspiration for this diy. i've had it pinned on pinterest for an eternity. so when I came across $3 sweatshirts at wal-mart the other day i felt like it was just meant to be. i resisted grabbing more than two (i am so bad when it comes to good deals) brought them home and gave them both a good wash and dry. the other one is white and i already have something in mind for it... like it? Would love it if you pinned it :) For more fashion DIY posts simply click HERE.
