Friday Favorites– McCormick Perfect Pinch

Hello! How was your week?

After driving back home from Vegas with 2 hours of sleep on Monday, I wasn’t sure how this week would go. Buuut, I caught up on sleep Monday night and jumped back into the swing of things by Tuesday Smile IMG_9561 (1280x960) (1280x960)

All that felt like yesterday and now it’s time for my Friday Favorites of the week!

Food Faves:

1. I got this McCormick Perfect Pinch spice jar from Fitbloggin and finally busted it out last week. I am in love! IMG_9736 (533x800)

I sprinkled some on my roasted brussel spouts last night…IMG_9730 (800x533)

and have been putting it on eggs for breakfast too!IMG_9723 (800x533)

2. Pancakes!

We ate at the Grand Lux Café in Las Vegas Sunday morning. I was thisclose to passing on the invite, but it’s Susan’s favorite restaurant ever. So, hung over or not we went.

It’s owned by the same company that does Cheesecake Factory, but it’s better! They have these signature Red Velvet Pancakes that a few people at the table ordered. Luckily, my dining partners shared. Love that.


I tried the Red Velvet Pancakes and yes, they are like Heaven in your velvet pancakes

and Banana Pecan Pancakes. God.Bless.Them.grand lux banana  pancakes

Susan and I shared an omelet and regular pancakes. Pretty sure we must have still been drunk to order regular pancakes with those other options on the menu. grand lux pancakes

Friday Not-So-Faves…

Before I went to Vegas I got my face threaded – that’s when they use thread to remove your eye brow hair or other facial hair instead of waxing. I can’t do waxing because my skin freaks out every time.

Well, the combo of threading and copious amounts of make-up I woke in LV made me break out worse than I ever have in my life. It’s bad. Boo.

In spite of that I’m going to do a make-up post soon. I bought this Smashbox try it kit for the primer and want to review…smashbox primer

I took a poll on twitter, but wanted to check here too – do you prefer makeup tutorials on video or picture posts?

Question: What was your favorite thing this week?


  1. says

    Pumpkin Spice Eggnog I found at Target….you really should try it…I have never liked eggnog but hubs always buys a cartoon at Christmas…this is the first nog I have actually enjoyed. (but the calories and such aren’t pretty)

    Oh well…neither am I if I don’t get my sweets…hahaha!

    Getting a new mixer this week, I’m going to bake all the things this weekend!!

    Also, the Smashbox primer is the best I have ever used, it makes your skin feel so soft and your makeup go on really easily and it stays looking pretty fresh all day. I love that stuff!

    Yum, pancakes! I always get eggs when I have breakfast (will try to get a bite of my husbands french toast or we will share 1 pancake!)

    My favorite thing this week was getting up and in town today at 6:30am to run in Boston with my girlfriends(do it every Friday morning)! I love starting my Friday/weekend this way!!

    We are a “Perfect Pinch” family over here 😉 I love the Vegetable seasoning and the husband is partial to the Garlic & Herb one.

    Oh and I enjoy the video posts-easier to follow along!

    I just bought that kit too! I’ve used their primer for a year and LOVE it. Honestly I bought the kit for the lipgloss and primer (not a fan of the mascara.) I like make-up video posts, but usually just skip to the “meat” of them.

  6. says

    Pop Chips!

    I have to admit to a terrible chip addiction, if it weren’t for Pop Chips, I probably would have eaten two days worth of calories in chips alone today!

    Do a make-up video post, because you don’t do that very often! Also you’re not like those boring superficial peeps on youtube who upload a billion makeup tutorials a day, so thats good!

    Ps, I use the smashbox primer and it’s amazing. I use half the amount of foundation which is great because my foundation is expensive so it lasts forever :) And it doesn’t make your face shiny, AND it lasts all day.

    I LOVE Smashbox primer – I don’t know how I lived before I discovered the green one that corrects too-red skin tones.

    I prefer picture posts – I often read at work (slacker x 50) and it’s tough to watch a video when I’m supposed to be acting productive :)
