Bites with Beau – Quick Refrigerator Pickles.

Pickles

Hey there bow friends,

As you might be able to tell, we’re diving into a guest food post today and by we I mean B, my very handsome partner.  He’s notorious for being creative in the kitchen and coming up with the most delicious meals so I’m not surprised he’s come up with an easy way to make delicious pickles.  I’ll leave the rest of the post to B.  Enjoy!

Refrigerator pickles, or “quick pickles” are a great way to get a snack or sandwich topping without the trouble of fermentation or sterilized canning. These won’t keep as long as pickles made with those other methods but they can be finished overnight and will last 1-3 months.

Hey there bow friends,

Back in June, B and I were in New York and we happened to stumble into a Tony Moly store.  I had never used any Tony Moly products before, but I knew they had a reputation for having incredible masks so I needed to get my hands on some.  I over heard the girl working in the shop describing the Tony Moly Water Bomb Sleeping Pack to a girl with oily skin and she made it sound down right magical.  I quickly grabbed a bottle and am so glad I did.

Hey there bow friends!

As I’ve mentioned before, B and I moved in together this summer!  Between the two of us, we have a lot of furniture, decor, and household items, but there are still a few things here and there that are missing.  I’ve been scouring the internet for some unique home items and I think I found some real gems at ModCloth.  Some of my favorites are just as much practical as they are cute.

OOTD – Birds of a Feather feat. Jord

Hey there bow friends,

Today I’m doing a little summery outfit inspired by the Jord Fieldcrest watch in Maple*.  Ever since graduating I’ve been struggling with feeling adult.  Things like carrying a nice purse, wearing a nice watch, or dressing a little more put together feels so strange because I’m not feeling too adult.  A mini shopping trip with my mom and a cup of tea later and I have been feeling so much better.  I’m embracing the more grown up me as much I can and getting dressed up in little ways everyday has been helping my confidence a ton.

Beauty Exploration: The Summer Oranges.

An assortment of Tara's favorite orange productsHey there bow friends,

One of my absolute favorite lip colors for summer is anything orange or coral.  The hard thing is that some shades of orange aren’t blue based so they give you the appearance of extra yellow teeth.  The great thing is that I have a slew of orange lip picks to suit any skin tone in a variety of formulas and finishes.  I’ve 100% got your back.

Bowtube – Collective Haul feat. Tony Moly, UD, Rimmel, Maybelline, and more!

A photo of moments from Tara's Haul video

Hey there bow friends,

Today I’m showing you all of the goodies I’ve been collecting over the last couple of weeks as well as my fancy graduation present.  I picked up a bunch of these products on our New York trip and the rest have come from many drugstore trips to CVS.  I’ve been all about CVS recently and found my favorite one in my new town.  I never realized how much money back you end up getting when you’re a rewards member there and so it helps me justify beauty purchases.  It’s a dangerous game, but I’m addicted.
