Tip O the Day: Sequinnimon!

Someone left a tip last week in a comment that gave me an idea for a new feature on ye olde blogge: Tip O The Day!


Recently I waxed poetic about my love for cinnamon, and this little lady suggested my new favorite thing.


TIP: Rather than sprinkling cinnamon on top of your coffee before drinking it, add a lil cinnamon to your coffee grounds BEFORE you start to brew it. That way, no gloppy cinnamon blobs that float on the coffee and mysteriously never dissolve. I tried it, and haven't looked back since. 


SO. GOOD.


So here's to YOU, Julie. If you haven't been to The Daily Julie yet, GO. Girlfriend is funny, and has great tips on shopping, food, health, shopping, fashion, and shopping.

 Here is Julie in Charleston (one of my favorite towns). Julie - if we ever meet, and you're wearing those boots? I will wrestle you to the ground for them. Just kidding (no I'm not).
 I have NEVER considered doing a juice cleanse until I read Julie's post on it. Have I done it yet? No, but that's not because I don't want to. Only because I'm too lazy.
 I'll take one of each. Thanks, Julie!


So whatchooo waiting for? Get over there and check girlfriend out.


And if YOU have a great tip that you leave in a comment or e-mail? Well, I may just feature you in the next Tip O The Day.

Gold Sequin dress as skirt: Alice & Olivia, via eBay

That's a great way to wear the dress! Such a great way to dress down the sequins and dress up the sweater. Love that outfit!

I really love the sequined dress as a skirt. It adds such a great touch having the tiniest bit of sequins peek out of the top of your sweater too!
