Posh Trend Alert! Mirrored Sunnies

When I think mirrored sunnies...images of "The Fly" come to the forefront.  But, I have to admit it is a look that is growing on me...and it is a fun way to update your sunnies collection to be on trend for summer.

If you get on board...I probably wouldn't invest a ton on this one...here today likely gone tomorrow.  Nonetheless, these lovelies are bringing the trend to life in a good good way.  Stay Posh!

Posh Possessions! Converse Studded Leather Sneaker

Ummm ok I haven't done one of these posts in a while but here goes.  So I walked into Bloomies with my focus purely on grabbing some of the new NARs  Satin lip pencils.  First let me say those lip pencils are epic.  More on that later.  Anyhoo, on my way out I saw these beauties and thought...I must take these home.  They were sold out except for this pair...and of course...they were my size.  Love it when that happens!

If you follow this blog you know I'm more stilettos than sneakers but sometimes you just got to mix it up.  I also love these for casual errand days or vacay travel.  Of course they are posh, classic (I mean they are converse) but they will also prevent me from buying the Sandro, Paris version which are about 6 times the price.  Hmmm fabulous and fiscally sound...who can ask for more.  Stay Posh!

Posh Obsessions! Spaghetti Squash Stir-Fry


Hello Poshinistas, I don't do a ton of food posts but this one is relevant to where I am in my life right now.  I am currently on Day #23 of a Whole30.  Quite a journey but one worth taking if you are interested in an easy healthier way of eating without counting calories (yes please!). While experimenting with cooking healthier versions of old favorites--I created this recipe..spaghetti squash with jumbo shrimp and mixed veggies.

I don't really cook from recipes but below is a simple recap of what I did--probably some room for variation or taste (saltier/spicier).

Ingredients
1 Whole spaghetti squash
1 cup shrimp (or other protein)
1 lemon
1 1/2 cups of veggies
Salt, cayenne and pepper to taste
3 cloves of garlic

Time about 20 minutes

Directions
  • Wash and halve a ripe spaghetti squash
  • Bake cut halves down (I recommend spraying lightly with EVVO) on a cookie sheet at 425 degrees for 45 minutes (I covered the sheet with aluminum foil for easy clean up)
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 1 minute
  • "Grate" pulp out with a fork.  It will string like photo 1
  • Heat a skillet with about 2 tablespoons of EVVO until hot
  • Add 3 cloves of garlic
  • Saute protein of your choice until done (I used shrimp but could sub chicken)
  • Add veggies of your choice (I used asparagus, portabello and onion-stir frying for about 3 minutes
  • Add pinch of salt, pepper, and cayenne to taste
  • Next add squash to the veggie/protein mixture
  • Add pinch of salt, pepper and a few squeezes of lemon
  • Mix well let heat for about 1 minute and remove from heat
  • Voila!

Posh Style! Florescent Fashion

Florescent  is so hot right now.  Usually, I don't repeat trends twice.  However, this time around feels fresh and most importantly it is sans side ponytails and off-the-shoulder sweatshirts that say "Totally Awesome."  I love the idea of using florescent as a neutral--take note from these ladies.  Stay Posh!
