Day 260: Versatile blue nail color

You know how when you go to a restaurant, and peruse the menu, but always gravitate to the same option.  Mainly it's because you know you like it, and you won't be disappointed.  This is exactly how I feel when I go to get a pedicure.  I gravitate to one of my favorites, OPI's "I vant to be a-lone star" nail color.  

It's a light blue color that isn't so pastel, but more of a frosty and shiny blue.  If Disney's Frozen had a nail color (who am I kidding, it probably does) this would be it.  It's suitable for all seasons, and I'm so pleased with how it looks against my skin tone.  OPI quality is always superb, with just two coats lasting for weeks.  I wore it on the beach last summer, and have it on right now in October!

Day 244: Low Fat Chocolate Chip "Muffins"

Though these are technically muffins, trust me, they taste more like cupcakes.  They are super decadent and rich.  They will not last long!

Find the recipe here.  A few notes on what I did:  I made the applesauce myself, which is easy with a baby food processor that steams and then purees the apples.  And I used regular chocolate chips.  Also, if you go with the recipe as is (no real chocolate chips) it is gluten free and dairy free.

Enjoy with a mug of milk, or other beverage of your choice!
