My (ahem) 25th reunion is in three weeks, it is time to stop all eating and drinking until then. In all seriousness, I am having an easier time with my new diet, thanks to Starkist Tuna's new Tuna Creations. There are many flavors to choose from, they are single-serve pouches and they are seasoned and ready to eat. A few have over 100 calories, but they all clock in at 1 - 2 SmartPoints®. Check out this yummy recipe from Hungry Girl:
Hungry Girl's Sweet 'n Sassy Egg Bites
2 (2.6 oz.) Pouch - Tuna Creations® Sweet & Spicy
1⁄4 cup reduced-fat/light mayonnaise
1⁄4 cup diced red bell pepper
1⁄4 cup diced sweet onion
10 hard-boiled eggs, chilled
In a bowl, thoroughly mix tuna with mayo. Stir in pepper and onion.
Halve eggs lengthwise; remove and discard yolks. Evenly distribute tuna mixture among egg white halves. Enjoy!
Chanel will launch Boy Chanel in the US THIS month. It is the latest addition to the Les Exclusifs collection. The unisex fragrance was developed by house perfumer Olivier Polge, and was inspired by Arthur "Boy" Capel. Captain Arthur Edward "Boy" Capel was an English polo player, and possibly best-remembered for being a lover and muse of fashion designer Coco Chanel.
“My way of working on this fragrance was really not to try to make a unisex fragrance but really more to dive into men’s fragrance…and to show how well it could be worn by a woman,” said Polge, drawing a parallel to a woman putting on her boyfriend’s shirt, thereby rendering it feminine. “So it was not to try to create an in-between fragrance, but a very masculine fragrance. And — like many other things in life — gender is given by the person wearing it.”
Polge described the fragrance as having a duality, with a fresh, aromatic masculine barbershop aspect and its more enveloping element.
Boy Chanel features a masculine fougère accord. Notes include lavender, rose geranium, lemon, grapefruit, rose, orange blossom, sandalwood, heliotropin, vanilla and musk. (via wwd)
Chanel Boy Chanel debuted in May in Paris, and go into wider distribution in June. It will be available in 75 and 200 ml Eau de Toilette. OH!
They had one bottle to cry over when I was at the Saks Chanel counter in New Orleans, it is now my new favorite, I can not wait to snag some.
First Comes Love by Emily Giffin. Can I tell you a secret? Don't meet your favorite authors-it is sometimes a big disappointment. Nada and I met her at Blogging Workshop a couple of years ago and she was not very kind.
However, shamelessly I will still pick this book up, coming out June 28th, because her writing is that good. A pair of sisters find themselves at a crossroads in this dazzling new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Something Borrowed, Where We Belong, and The One & Only. First Comes Love is a story about family, friendship, and the courage to follow your own heart—wherever that may lead.
