Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Asymmetrical collar jacket.


Rebecca Minkoff Hobo


I'm a sucker for a few things.....
1. A good sale
2. Asymmetrical clothing
3. A really nice leather bag

God, it's been beat to death. And I'm sure you are rolling your eyes at me right now. BUT the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is truly a good opportunity to buy some higher quality, lasting pieces to add to your wardrobe. 

I bought the two items above. It will be my third Rebecca Minkoff bag. I highly, highly recommend her bags. Great price point for super, butter soft leather. 

I tried to find some booties for tailgate season, but nothing sparked my attention. If you find any you recommend send them my way. 

Edited to add: And I was super annoyed their site was down the last few days, I wasn't even going to bother. However, they did try and make it up to people with extra reward points, which was nice.

Grilling a Beer-Can Chicken

Beer-Can Chicken on the Grill


The guys over a eReplacement Parts have come up with a handy beer-can chicken tutorial and graphic.

The beer can helps cook the skin evenly by keeping the chicken from touching the grill, and the beer itself provides more moisture and flavor to the bird. Perfect for your summer barbecues or for tailgating in the fall.
