Italian grilled cheese sammich :)

Posted by That's What She Said at 8:01 AM 0 comments


(Obviously this is not a picture of my recipe, idk what it is actually...lol)

This is a recipe I came up with when I was on a total grilled-cheese binge-- (blame it on the time of the month, my dears!) After getting sick of regular grilled cheese I tried to come up with ways to spruce it up a bit, this is the result of said sprucing…

You Will need:
Bread (any kind you like, I prefer potato)
Italian cheeses (Mozzarella, Parmesan, etc…)
Cream cheese
Roma tomato
Pepperoni (I get the pizza topping one that comes in a bag)
Butter or Olive oil
Salt & pepper
And a skillet


(Before you start preparing your sandwich, be sure to have your skillet on a low heat to warm it up.) Ok, so, start with your bread and your cream cheese, spread your cream cheese like butter on the inside of your sandwich. (Sounds weird, I know, just go with it!) Next, add your other cheeses and your pepperoni. Slice your Roma tomato in thin-ish slices, salt and pepper them and add them to your sandwich. Next, butter both slices on the outside of your sandwich and slap on the skillet. Should be done when all the cheese is melted and is golden brown on both sides. Cut in halves and enjoy!

Healthier substitute

Posted by That's What She Said at 4:19 PM 0 comments
You know those really yummy taco's you like to make? But you might feel all gross afterwards? That's because of the beef you cooked with it-beef tends to make you feel slightly groggy afterwards.
Just a few days ago my roommate made us dinner and she made tacos with ground turkey. I couldn't even tell the difference! Turkey is a lot healthier than beef so that's an added plus, we also used low calorie taco bell seasoning so it tasted like fast food but much more healthier. Enjoy! :o)

5 Things Jolie-Miette Lovess

Posted by Taylor at 1:27 PM 0 comments
This week's top five is just a few of a favorites I've had for years along with a couple of new favorites as of late. Hope you enjoy this intricate selection of 5 things I love (:




1. Notebooks

I'm sure my family has had hundreds of these borderline-hoarder influencing materials. I mean, who wouldn't? They come in all sorts of styles, colors, sizes, textures; etc. etc. They're just magnificent, and have so many uses! Paper airplane supplies provider, a place to jot down a note, a best friend you can blab to about all your latest adventures without it talking back (although the girl squeals are oh so fun!), etc. etc.

2. Mod Cloth Online Clothing Store

Now, you all know how I love me some vintage - especially the 40s, 50s, 30s, etc. Well, this store is pretty much my heaven: Mod Cloth has modern clothes, vintage clothes and vintage styled clothes with a modern twist. And, they have the most delectable apartment items that are just cute as can be! Shop here to take a look at what I'm talkin' about.

3. Ballet Flats

I have always had a love for Ballet. Ever since I was little I have wanted to be as graceful as a dancer and begged my mother to take me to a ballet class. Unfortunately, we never could, but at least my favorite shoes are in style (: Aren't they adorable? And so comfortable too!


4. Turquoise

I. Love. This. Color. Its absolutely gorgeous! Its flattering, vintage (very popular in the 50s) and just magnificent! Elegant yet modern and urban, I'm very lucky and ecstatic that this color is one of the new 'fads' of our culture (:

5. Audrey Hepburn's "Breakfast at Tiffany's" Sunglasses

Ever since I first saw this movie a few years ago, I have wanted a pair of sunglasses like hers. They're sleek, a snippet of classy and a bit cat-like. I adore them. Luckily, I was able to acquire a pair extraordinarily similar to this pair of exquisite sun-defy-ers. You can also acquire a pair of your own at Walmart from Miley Cyrus/Max Azria's clothing and accessory line. (:

Polaroid Art

Posted by Taylor at 8:50 AM 0 comments


Oh how I love Polaroids. There's something mysterious and mystical about them. Although their production has ceased to exist from my understanding, there are still many people out there who love the quality of a Polaroid instant picture. I'm sure I'm not the only one who appreciates the beauty that this simple yet complex little figure produces with just the click of a button.

I was first introduced to the Polaroid's wonders by my aunt while we were camping. She snapped a photo of me, at the tender age of 5, wearing a giant shirt that belonged to my grandfather, hovering over the fire. My legs were twigs, and I looked like an innocent little girl (although I assure you I was not; I was one of the most mischievous little girls, but that's a story for another time.)

Well, today I'm showing you a Polaroid artist whom I've recently discovered and admire - Grant Hamilton. See the picture above? Yes, he took that.


His way of capturing the vividness of the colors is magnificent; almost gives you a kind of retro, seventies feeling. I love the bold, bright colors in his photos, and how the closeups make you wonder what the whole thing looks like (and makes you want to see what it looks like.)

I hope you like this little find - I know I did. He inspires me to work harder with my own photography in order to capture beauty in a vivid, bold way.
