Mango Lassi

When my mom came to visit, she brought me some champagne mangoes.  I love mangoes, especially the ones from the Philippines and champagne mangoes are closest in taste.  Sweet, huge, firm and simply yummy.

When I saw these mangoes, it immediately reminded me of a friend's blog post.  I am a big fan of Indian cuisine and I never fail to order mango lassi when I am indulging myself.  So, with big, fat, yummy mangoes at hand, why not make some lassi?  The only ingredients needed can be found on your pantry/refrigerator (well, except for the mango I guess).

Pop all that in the blender (or in my case, a Magic Bullet) and you get yummy lassi.  A perfect treat for any day!

Since I used a Magic Bullet, my lassi is a little bit more chunky.  But, I do like the little bits of mango in my lassi.  Also, I didn't add any ice cubes so I had to keep my lassi in the fridge until it reached the temp I wanted.  Here's the "recipe":

1 champagne mango
1/2 cup Fage greek yogurt
1/2 cup skim milk
1 tbsp sugar (I used the raw kind)

Pop everything in the blender until it reaches desired consistency.  You may add ice cubes if you want.  If you want a more tart flavor, increase yogurt to 3/4 cup and decrease milk to 1/4 cup.  It's all about proportions so play with it until you find the combination you like.

Enjoy!  xoxo

Tiffany Sunglasses

I just bought sunglasses so I shouldn't even be looking at any more, right?  Well, as soon as I read this post on The Glamourai, I knew I had to check them out. 

I'm not your typical Tiffany girl.  Hell, I didn't even like Breakfast at Tiffany's (the book was better) but I have to admit, I do browse the Tiffany site more often than I should.  I can't help it, I love the Peretti line.  Now that they have added sunglasses to the mix, I'm not sure I can resist.

My faves:
1. Locks- interesting lock detail on the legs.

2.  1837 - what's Tiffany sunglasses without the signature Tiffany blue?

3. Garden - the butterfly detail is a cute touch but I think it's just I can't get enough of aviators.

Big News

I almost forgot about my big news!!  This is what happens when too many things are going on at once.  Anyway, in a little over a week, I will be starting my new job at NYP/Cornell - one of the best hospitals in the country!!  If that isn't amazing news, I don't know what is! 

Thanks to everyone who had my back.  I love you all.  xoxo

Busy Bee

These past few weeks have been hectic.  As I mentioned before, I've been busy with work, I've been sick, I've moved apartments and have played host to my mom and brother.  Listing all that just makes me dizzy. 

For all my hard work, I "rewarded" myself with a new pair of sunglasses.  I haven't bought sunglasses in a LONG time and when these popped up, I knew they were meant to be.  Of course, you have to know that I'm rationalizing but it's ok because I deserve them.


DSquared2 Bi-colored Sunglasses

Additionally, while my mom was in town, despite my sick condition, we stopped by Soho for some retail therapy.  Since I moved to a smaller space with not nearly enough closet space, I couldn't justify new clothes.  Besides, I really don't need any new clothes since I still have some with tags on.  I resisted the temptation, aren't you proud?  Well, not entirely since I didn't get off scot free.  Not clothes, but a small cuff from Madewell.  I kept on hemming and hawing but as my mom loves to tell me...if you like it, you buy it.  So I did. 

Madewell Dandelion Cuff Bracelet

This cuff has a matching pendant/charm and necklace which I might go back for (particularly the pendant).  How cute is it though???  I'll tell you...VERY.  Great job on the jewelry line Madewell.  Can't wait to try on the new Textile Elizabeth & James Madewell Exclusives!!  Will blog when I get my hands on it.
