add it to my list: april 2017

I haven't done much lately, but I still feel like I've been busy. I haven't taken the time to try many new things and I'm still in a reading slump. BUT! The link-up should still go on. So glad Bre and I do this together because I need the accountability.

(But true story, I saw her on Saturday and we were both in shock that another month had passed and it was time to do this again).

So to remind you, add it to my list is a place for you to share the things you already recommend to people in real life. Anything goes and all we ask is that you leave comments in a few different places and bonus points for doing so with us. That's it.

Lash Princess Mascara. Steph got it and posted about it last month because Stephanie posted about it and when it was compared to the Too Faced Better than Sex mascara (which I'm tempted to try but I'm just cheap!), I had to go find it. I went to two Ultas and both were sold out of the False Lash Effect but one had a two pack of that one plus the Volume mascara. It was $8 for both so no huge financial gamble. The volume works well for me during the day and the false lash effect is nice at night or for dressing up. I can't speak to how it compares to more expensive brands, but I like it.

Add It To Your Dinner List

These Mediterranean Chicken Bowls. This is a recipe that I feel comfortable cooking that actually tastes good. You can prepare things ahead of time, which I appreciate, and it's plenty for us to have leftovers. It's a lot of garlic, though, so I normally use half of what's suggested. Otherwise, it's perfect.

My husband and his business partner dreamed up chicken enchilada sausage - chicken, enchilada sauce, onions, peppers, and corn tortillas IN a sausage - and it's delicious. I was looking forward to having some over the weekend, but they sold out of food in a little over two hours and I was working so I was late to the event. So sad. I wish making sausage was easier because we would have it every week, at least.

And you know what? That's it from me. Sometimes you're just tapped out of recommendations. I'll work harder to try new things in May. Here's hoping I get some good things to try from you.


  1. LOL when i did my old linkup, i never posted because i always forgot (and was also surprised at how fast the time came to link up) and then we decided to let it rest in peace.

  2. I didn't have a lot of recommendations this month either, April definitely flew by for me.

  3. I'm glad you liked the mascara!

    I'm very into bowls right now. I like to throw a bunch of sh*t together and go from there.

  4. I still have that mascara on my list to buy. Ulta opens in my shopping town on Friday so I am hoping they have it!! They sent us $5 off $15 coupons for the grand opening. Yay!!! I love better than sex mascara so I am hoping I like this just as much.

  5. I'm so glad everyone is trying and loving the mascara, it's such a great, cheap, cruelty free find so I like to spread the word!
    Those bowls look really delicious, I think I'll try them (but minus the chicken and probably all of the garlic because I have a serious garlic obsession in that I'll even eat raw cloves.)

  6. The chicken bowl looks delicious! I think I'd sub the rice for riced cauliflower and I'd be in business!

  7. I had nothing to share last month so I definitely know how you feel! Um, that sausage sounds delicious and I don't even like sausage that much. Awesome idea, but terrible that he didn't same you some! Also wish they had something like that here!

  8. Those Med chicken bowl look delicious! Adding to the menu for next week...

  9. Need to try that mascara. I currently use BTS but it's so darn pricey!!

  10. I might have to try the mascara. I'm not picky about mascaras, but I never know which ones to buy because packaging and products change so often. I can never remember which ones i like. My rule is <$10.

  11. Damn. I forgot about the link-up this month.
    I got that mascara after Steph's recommendation, and I'm loving it too.
    I NEED that sausage in my life!

  12. I love this linkup! What a fun and vague topic to share some awesome finds.


I like comments and read them all but I'm not great about responding to them, so please don't be offended. I would much rather visit your blog instead!
