Vintage Etsy Finds

I’ve recently fallen in love with Etsy.com.  It’s a great way to vintage shop from the privacy of your own home.  I’ve shared some of my past vintage finds, but here are some of my latest acquisitions…

An adorable embroidered linen towel from the 1940s.  I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it, but it was too cute to pass up.   It’s from Pink Chic Boutique

Retro Recipe Redo: Iceberg Wedge Salad

My boyfriend and I have bonded over a mutual love of Mad Men.  So for the mid-season finale I decided to make his favorite salad, the Iceberg Wedge Salad.  I adapted this one from Giada De Laurentiis.  I basically followed her recipe, but I used light sour cream… and since Giada uses buttermilk, this dressing is naturally lower in fat than most.

Audrey Hpeburn Chocolate

I’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about the new commercial featuring Audrey Hepburn and Dove Dark Chocolate.  Some people say it’s creepy.  I think, if it exposes the elegance of Ms. Hepburn to a new generation then it’s worth it.  I’d love to hear your opinion…

Here is the commercial…

Best Sports Bras for Full Figures

Since swimsuit season is coming, this is an Everyday Starlet’s version of training for a big movie role.  So now is the time to grab some cute workout wear, make a fun playlist, and pick your favorite exercise to get that Pin Up Girl figure.  If you’re a busty lady like me, then working out (especially cardio and any kind of jumping) can be challenging.  So I wanted to give you ladies some options for supporting your “ladies”.

Retro Recipe Redo: Spaghetti Squash with Vegetable Tomato Sauce

Spaghetti Squash with vegtable tomato sauce

Starlets love pasta!  Sophia Loren once famously said, “Everything you see I owe to spaghetti.”  So I wanted to do a new take on a classic.  This recipe is Gluten free, and vegan (if you omit the sprinkling of parmesan, or use a non-dairy version).  I sometimes add creamy white beans to add some protein.  So feel free to indulge in this luxurious plate of veggies.
