Today is the day! I have finally crafted the perfect Chilled Peach Soup!
Super cute top from Old Navy, now 20% off! Super cute earrings from Noonday, also on a tremendous sale! Lipstick! I'm wearing lipstick that I bought before I realized the plague that is upon us - Popsicle Lips by Sephora - Popsicle Lips - could you die?
Per our non-legally binding agreement (Parties: BustleandVim.com and The Gentle Rea...
I've taken the week off from Covid Projects. My family has not. Husband continues to bake bread, Younger is making marshmallows, Older has been crafting his own fresh mozzarella. But none of them want to blog about the experience, and I, as already mentioned, am on hiatus.
So, when you're not up to the work, but still need a treat (and I always need a treat), here's what's let do:
Oh, hey there! Take a seat. Need a drink? I know I do! (Laughs hysterically into the void.)
Let me whip up a little something for us.
We need the tonic of wildness... Henry David Thoreau
There's no way I'm the only person who has invented a new cocktail, based on whatever randomness can be found in one's pantry/fridge during the Quar. Can we call it that? R. Eric Thomas calls it that, and if it's good...

I know this because when I made Blueberry Soup for my friend Shelby's birthday brunch a few years ago and presented the soup course, I got a lot of weird and worried looks.

I have my friend Andrea to thank for dragging me out of my quarantine doldrums, and giving me a task with meaning and purpose. Introducing: Baking For Good!
She had the genius idea to take all that stress-baking and sourdough-humble-bragging that's filling our social feeds, and put it to good use: to host an online auction/virtual bake sale to raise money for the Central Texas Food Bank. But she needed a tech-savv...
Hello, fellow quarantiners! Are you having a hard time not letting the days just kind of drift by in a hazy yet absurdist wave of naps, Netflix, Zoom meetings, day drinking, and... more naps? If so, and according to the internet, you are not alone. If you happen to be like me, and are unemployed during this quarantine, it can be hard to keep track of the days, stay productive, and maybe, occasionally put on real...
I know many of you have been baking up a storm this spring/plague season. I, myself, made some Speculoos Brownies earlier this week, and, yes, they are fabulous! But at some point we need to take a break and enjoy a treat that is lower in calories.
While BustleandVim is not a Fashion blog, per se, we do like to think that we are keeping up with current trends. Naturally, we do not do this alone. Diane at Shopaholic Sanctuary always has her finger on the Sartorial Pulse and is always ready to help.
So, what's trending? What's hot? What's current?
Yes, folks have been sporting this latest fashion must-have for what feels like BLOODY FOREVER, but is...
