Easy 30 Minute Pasta Bake Recipe

Let’s face it – no one really wants to cook dinner after a long day at work.  You’re tired, stressed out, and ready to chill out and relax.  What if I told you you could make a wholesome dinner in about the time it takes to go get fast food.

This easy pasta bake recipe is one of the recipes that is a go-to recipe in our house.  I was allowed to cook when I was a kid, usually with adult supervision.  Around 6th grade or so, I just decided that I’d start making dinner.  I made a lot of these types of decisions – good or bad!  This easy pasta bake recipe was one of the things that I went to often.

Recently, as part of my ambassadorship with Kohl’s, I had the chance to sneak preview the new Peter Som DesigNation collaboration, that will be available exclusively at Kohl’s.  Inspired by St Barths, these pieces are flirty and fun with quite a nautical flair.

What’s in this Peter Som for Kohl’s Sneak Peek?

First up was the black and white dress.  This is the type of dress that can take you from day to  night, and back to day again.  Pair it with a blazer for work.  Lose the blazer and add some sparkly jewelry and a pair of fabulous heels to hit up happy hour or for dinner with that certain someone.

As you may have heard, pink is like the IT color for spring 2014.  If you’re not wearing pink, you might as well be wearing a potato sack.  Recently, I had the chance to head over to Kohl’s to see what they had in the way of pink clothing and accessories for spring.

How to Wear a Statement Necklace

Disclosure: How to Wear Statement Necklaces is part of an advertorial. pixel How to Wear a Statement Necklace

Statement necklaces have become so popular in the past year or so.  One of the questions I hear most often is – “How do I wear a Statement Necklace?”

It’s really not that hard!  A lot of it depends on the style of the necklace.  For a necklace like this one, which is loaded with fabric rosettes in various colors, I would pair it with a solid colored top.

I would wear this with a white or black tee or tank, denim capris, and sandals.  For a slightly dressier look, I might switch out some black or khaki pants and a wedge or a heel.

Taking the Olay Regenerist Luminous Glow Challenge #luminousglow

The Olay Luminous Glow challenge is sponsored by P&G/SheSpeaks.  Opinions are my own.

olay regenerist luminous Taking the Olay Regenerist Luminous Glow Challenge #luminousglow

AS much as I don’t really want to admit it, I’m not getting any younger.  While my skin is still in really excellent shape, I’d probably rather be proactive than reactive.  I mean, it’s easier to guard against wrinkles, dark spots, and other damage than to try to reverse this kind of skin damage & signs of aging.

To this point, I’ll be testing out the Olay Regenerist Luminous Skin Care line.  This line is similar to boutique products with a much more pocketbook friendly price tag.  Some of the highlights of the Olay Regenerist Luminous Skin Care line include:

  • Brightens skintone
  • Fades the look of discoloration and dark spots
  • Reduces the appearance of undereye darkness and circles
  • Improves skin’s texture

Follow along on twitter & Instagram with #luminousglow to see how the skincare routine is coming along.  Check back in a couple weeks for  my thoughts, too.
