Some YUMS and a Tutorial for YOU!


Hello Blog World!  So this is a random post, but it is going to contain 2 wonderful things…yummy food pics and a great do-it-yourself tutorial for a quick and easy hairdo (great for the summer)!

So, on Sunday (post my Broad Street glory) we went to the Famous 4th Street Deli…again. I know, our family really does it up at “the Deli!”  It’s a place where we all enjoy and can all find something we like!  So, without further ado, here are the monstrosities pictures…

My cousin Bess' HALF sandwich! Look at that baby! Chopped liver and corned beef!

My dad's salad and pastrami sandwich...on TWO knishes! PS: Knish= potato pastry

Daily Oscar did that end up there? hehe

OK, so speaking of yummy foods, I just wanted to share a new combo I have been digging big time.  I discovered this amazingly yummy snack while attempting to recreate Caitlin’s wonton cookies.  Recipe here.


So she used banana and almond butter in hers, as I did with half of mine.  But I decided to get funky and unique with a different combo…

Strawberry and Nutella!

I just LOVE LOVE LOVE this combo!  Nutella is sooo yummy and when combined with some strawberries, it’s a party in your mouth!  What a treat!  Try it…like now!

OK, so moving on to the hair-do.  Here is how this got started…I saw my hairdresser rock this cool style and asked her for a quck how-to.  It is a great alternative to a pony tail (as I rock these frequently)…



Messy ponytail...OK, you get the point

So, here are some pics of what you are aiming for… (taken this morning in my lovely rental convertible :-))

OK, so here’s what you need to start (PS:  if you think those pics are dumb, stop reading now hehe)…

One clip, TWO bobby pins and ONE barrette!

Easy breezy…

1.  Separate hair into 4 parts: back, side, side and bangs

2.  Take all of the back hair, twist it upwards and clip into place with the CLIP

3.  Take the side piece, twist it back towards the rest of the gathered hair and pin into place with the bobby pin.

4.  Repeat on the other side

5.  Take your bangs and twist them back, securing with the barette (or another bobby pin if you wish)

See!  SOOOO easy!  Let me know if you try this! I usually spray it with some hairspray if I know I have a long day coming or a workout later in the day 🙂

Good luck and toodles!
