This. Is. So. Good. Oh, this is SO gooooood.

HEY! Hi! How do you do?

This post is sponsored by my friends at Time Inc. just in time for my MUCHO needed ME-TIME. With end of school year activities that piled up, I am ready to unplug, unwind, and do what I do best; read and cook. On my own. No noise. Just me and my magazines, while chillin’ with a cup of coffee and a French Vanilla scented candle.

Like so;

Shrimp, Chorizo and Corn Salad - Start your summer right with this amazing salad chock full of shrimp, tomatoes, corn and chorizo sausage.

Sunday, in particular, is the one day I take some me time to try a new recipe, a new lipstick, too, paint my nails, and catch up on magazines. Carving out a little time for myself relieves stress and is an opportunity to recharge my batteries. If I don’t take care of myself, I can’t take care of the rest of the fam, know what I’m sayin’? You, too?? High Five! 

Banana and Eggs

Usually, I just hop over to our nearby Jewel-Osco (<— click it for coupons!) and hoard all the magazines that I can find; People for some juicy gossip, In Style for some fashion inspiration, and Cooking Light for a bit of good ol’ food inspiration.

I realize that me time means different things to different people. It can mean getting a massage, or a pedicure every Friday after work, even a blow out for the weekend. BUT, to me? Me Time is all about sitting on the couch, flipping through In Style Magazine and pretending that I have $1800 to spend on a new Gucci bag. And those Jimmy Choo shoes. I come back to Earth as soon as I start looking through my recipe magazines and find a recipe that I have all the ingredients for to make right away. And I do.

Evidence:

Banana Pancakes with 2 Ingredients

2 Ingredient Banana Pancakes. Say whaaaat?
YEP! THIS is why I love my magazines; it’s all about learning, it’s about escapism and, of course, inspiration.
