Georgia’s 5 Favs: Life of Pi and 4 Other Things I’m Into This Week
This week has been crazy for me. I’ve had something different to do each night. That’s a good thing, but I’m exhausted! I’m glad tomorrow is Friday! Besides seeing a new movie, I’ve gotten into a lot of fun stuff this week – check out Georgia’s 5 Favs!
1. Life of Pi
I read this book several years ago. It was really hard to read, but I’m glad I finally made it through the whole thing. It’s one of those books where I had to re-read a lot of pages… But it’s so so so so good. Very inspirational and spiritual. So, when the movie came out a few weeks ago, I knew I had to see it – and in 3-D!! The movie was everything I wanted it to be – beautiful, scary, sad and inspirational. Go see it soon.
2. My Husband’s Homemade Wine
(This is a picture of the container the wine ferments in) My father in law has been making his own wine forever. Several years ago, my husband got in on the action. He’s Italian, so naturally we like to eat and drink! We have no less than 100 bottles of homemade wine in our basement any given day! (What a hard life, I know!!) Today, my husband is hard at work in our basement bottling the wine that has been fermenting for about a year. Tonight, we will have 50 more bottles of Cabernet Sauvignon. Can’t wait to go home!
I ran across this recipe on Pinterest (scroll down if you don’t know what Pinterest is….) this past summer when my garden was full of eggplant. I’m a big fan of prosciutto, so this was the perfect way to eat up all of that eggplant! And it’s budget friendly! The website that posted the recipe is called Budget Bytes. Perfect. Simply perfect. And so are these eggplant roll-ups. Click HERE to see photos and step-by-step instructions for the recipe. Make these soon! They’re like lasagna rolled up in salty prosciutto and eggplant. Yum!
Pinterest is oddly addicting. But what the heck is it? It’s an online pin board. Huh? Instead of going to a website and finding a recipe or an outfit and printing out said outfit or recipe – you can “PIN” the image (embedded with a link to the website) to your Pinterest page. Therefore you always have access to the recipe or outfit. A Pinterest page is made up of “boards” or categories. Click HERE for more info on exactly what Pinterest entails. It took some patience and practice to really understand how it all works, but once you get it – you’re life will be changed! You can follow my boards HERE and follow Cat County’s boards HERE. Happy pinning!
I received a sample of this moisturizer in a Sephora order I placed recently. I use a lot of samples, (between my Sephora purchases and my Birchbox…) sometimes they are just ok and sometimes they life changing. I used this moisturizing gel one night and noticed a difference in my skin the next morning. That’s how I know that a product is good. According to Philosophy’s website, this gel cream moisturizer hydrates and detoxifies. What else does a lady need??
