- Ooh yeah. Edamame Hummus from the always super-classy Pink of Perfection – I'm trying to clear out our freezer before we move so now I know what to do with the ye olde bag of edamame!
- Skinnies for Curvies – this is an old post on You Look Fab in which stylist extraordinaire Angie declares that you shouldn't be afraid of skinny jeans if you have curvy hips and thighs then gives some great styling tips. My sister tried to convert me to skinny jeans, especially with the knee boots, but I was traumatised by my one skinny jean trying-on experience when I couldn't get the bastards past my ankles. I have THIGHS, baby… wide leg or flared jeans fit like normal on me. Le sigh.
Anyway, I found that post via Angie's newer entry about PZI Jeans, a company that makes skinny jeans for unskinny legs (albeit limited to sizes 4-16). Overall You Look Fab is a brilliant site with realistic tips and ideas and a great community (where I lurk most stealthily), perfect if you are totally clueless about how to get dressed in the morning.
- The New Mom's Pantry – If you're a new Mum struggling to find time to eat healthily Debbie at Words To Eat By has a cracker of a post about how to stock your pantry for easy cookin'. Debbie's running a wee course for new parents from her Brooklyn home called Parents Need To Eat, Too to pass on the things she learned as a frazzled new Mum. What a great idea. Speaking As A Childless Lazybones, I found the post very helpful!
