What I Wear-Palazzo Pants And Your Advice Needed

No comments:
I'm wearing: blue jean vest-Ross $10//White Shirt-?//Palazzo Pants-TJ Maxx $10





I thought it might be fun to start a discussion in this post. I was recently reading a website where a ton of girls were giving one another beauty/fashion advice, which I thought was awesome!
   That got me to thinking that I have some pretty awesome readers. So...I want you to share your beauty/fashion tips. What's one (or two, or ten!) things that may be obvious, but rock your world? 

I'll start-Halftee! Seriously, I got a gift card for Christmas and recently purchased 3 brown Halftees (tank top, cap sleeve and long sleeve.) THEY ARE AWESOME! Versatile, useful, a great modesty tool. 

I also have a fashion question! In previous Winters I've worn cheapy boots, which kill my feet. Now that I'm working and earning my own money, I'm looking to invest in a pair of comfortable boots, and pay more than I have previously! 
What brands of boots do you girls love?

THM/Trim Healthy Mama-Nutter Butter sugar free, low carb protein shake!

No comments:
Today I'm sharing a new milkshake/protein shake recipe with you. I've gotten a bit sick of the other shakes for breakfast-while good, I can only eat the same thing for breakfast for so long. 

Nutter Butter Protein Milkshake 
SERVES 1

In a blender place;

1 scoop of protein powder
1/4 cup of 2% cottage cheese
2Tbls peanut butter (without sugar!)
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1Tbls Of Erythritol
3 "doonks" of stevia (note: sweetner varies from person to person as to how much)
1/4 cup of water
Ice (the more ice, the bigger the drink, but I only put a handful or so in till it's drinkable but creamy)

BLEND 

Magic Chocolate Chunks-adapted skinny chocolate pg 371 in the book. 

In a bowl, melt 2Tbls coconut oil. 
Then add 1Tbls Erythritol, 1Tbls cocoa powder. Mix. Then add a small handful of cashews to the chocolate. 

Pour the chocolate/nuts into blender. 
Here's the magic! Let it sit till it's turned solid. After it's solid (a minute or so) pulse the blender. If you run the blender, it will just make a chocolate shake! So pulsing it creates chunks of nuts and chocolate. 
'Voila! Enjoy. 
Let me know what you think if you try it!

Coffee Chat With Natasha-Controversial Shorts

One of the questions I received on my survey was about why I'm okay with shorts (as I'm wearing here) but not short skirts? This is a really good question! I hadn't realized I've never covered this subject on my blog before.
    First of all, I'm not being wishy washy or anything like that, but modesty truly is different from person to person. Show me a verse in the Bible where it specifically says "thou shalt not wear ____." And we'll talk. I don't believe pants or shorts are against God's desire for us to wear modest apparel-within reason. We all know there are super tight pants and barely there shorts; we're not talking about those. 

To be honest, I wouldn't feel comfortable in shorts any shorter than these. The reason I'm okay wearing shorts at this length (versus a skirt this length) is for a simple reason: shorts stay in place, skirts don't! Shorts don't really show more at this length when you bend over or the wind blows. Skirts, however, show much more when you bend over and a lot more when the wind blows. 
Am I saying you should wear shorts? That answer is entirely up to you and God. I can't tell you one way or another-this is just my feelings about shorts! 

Now it's your turn: what are your thoughts on shorts?

What I Wear-(Harem?) Pants And DW Questions

I'm wearing: denim vest-Target $10, Black T-shirt-Target $7, "Harem" pants-TJ Maxx-$10







These pants look deceivingly like a maxi skirt. Which is awesome! As my title suggests, I'm not quite sure they qualify as "harem" pants? From googling I guess  they're not, so I don't really know what to call them! So from hence forth I shall refer to them as "harem pants" till someone can tell me something else to call them. I have one more pair I purchased. To be honest, I wasn't sure I was brave enough to wear them ( hint: the other ones are crazier!). But then I decided-"why care what other people are thinking about them? I like them, that's all that matters!"

This past weekend my brother, sister-in-law and nephew moved back to Montana-long story I'd rather not get into on my blog. But bottom line, I got to see my adorable little nephew, Zion. I'm totally biased, he's the cutest! 
I'm making an effort to put blogging as a priority, consistency is key-right?
Today was filled with teaching language arts for my younger siblings, bookwork for our family business, cleaning house, chopping veggies for dinner and a bit of piano practice. 

People who've read my blog for awhile may know I'm a Doctor Who fan. I was recently asked what I think of the latest Doctor-answer; he's growing on me! At first I hated him! He's a bit of a change, but I could get used to him. Only sad to know Clara will be leaving at Christmas, but such is DW, change is inevitable.

What I Wear-THM S Waffles And Hangin Around Outfit

Thank you all so much! Quite a few if you gave taken my survey and I'm gleaning quite a bit from each entry. 
  The main theme I'm seeing is more posting and specifically THM posts. 
I would be more than happy to share more about THM, though I should let ya know it's not going to be mind blowing. 
I would be curious if anyone has specific questions or topics about THM they'd like covered? 
For now I'll share some waffles I made yesterday. They were incredible! They're dense like a "real" waffle, but healthy for you. I took a tip from some of the ladies on the THM facebook page and used the muffin in a mug recipe on page 256 of the Trim Healthy Mama book-only I replaced the cocoa powder with whey protein powder (straight substitution). 
I would love to hear your THM tweaks, or just healthy eating tips!




This outfit is something I commonly wear to hang out. I don't always wear extras like; scarves, jewelry, etc. But I found these scarves at Wal Mart 2 for $4.97! I couldn't resist adding the scarf for a splash of fun. Maxi skirts are perfect for housework and hanging out-they're about as close to wearing PJs as one can get. 
 Thanks for reading!
