Cochon555 Austin- Don’t Miss Out on This Pig Party!

Mark those calendars for Sunday, August 20th Ladies and Gents! This one’s comin in HOT.  Cochon555 will be in Austin at The Four Seasons Hotel Austin, and you do NOT want to miss this pig party!

My friends at Cochon555 are kicking off an epic weekend full of creative food, artisanal wines and spirits, and heritage breed pork. If you love a good cause and want to attend one of the country’s most talked about culinary events, then clear your weekend calendar when Cochon555 returns to Austin on August 20th at the Four Seasons Hotel Austin! The event features five of Austin’s best chefs cooking five whole, heritage breed pigs in a friendly-ish 😉 competition for a cause. I can’t begin to tell y’all how excited I am to attend this event!

This year’s buzzworthy chefs are: James Flowers of TRIO, Sarah McIntosh of épicerie Cafe & Grocery, Nicholas Yanes of Juniper, Evan LeRoy of LeRoy and Lewis, and Clinton Kendall of East Side King. Notable butchers Bryan Butler of Salt & Time rounds out a stellar lineup. In addition, there are two satellite competitions, the Somm Smackdown (wine/pig matching) and Punch Kings (barkeeps facing off in whole-bottle cocktail tilt).

Those looking to make a weekend of it don’t need to wait until Sunday, as there is an opportunity to attend an exclusive charity dinner experience the night before the big event. On Saturday, we are hosting a Chef’s Course dinner called BESPOKE: An Evening of Culinary Modernity, with 100% of the proceeds going to benefit Piggy Bank, a Missouri farm-in-the-making that will gift free heritage breed pig genetics to family farms in need. For an in-depth look at the Cochon555 movement, a series of stunning videos and tickets to these must-do culinary experiences, please visit www.Cochon555.com.

Can Whiskey Be Green?

Hello Lovers! Happy Fri-Yay!! How’s the week treated y’all?! I’m not going to lie, as I’m typing this I could really use a cocktail. Like I’ve said before “adulting is hard!” some weeks are awesome, others not so much. It should be noted; you’re probably reading this and it’s morning, no, I’m not an alchohalic 😉 I’m typing this blog as I often do, in the evening.

Speaking of cocktails, have you ever heard of Austonian Whiskey? I wouldn’t be surprised if you haven’t. They just prepared their very first shipment back in May. Austonian Whiskey is a new Texas, FIRST ever sustainably matured whiskey, created by two engineering masterminds.

L and F prof final

One night, 2 Austin engineers, Lawrence and Frank (the masterminds above) were at a local bar hanging out, drinking, and having conversations about the growing whiskey barrel shortage, I mean… what else do guys talk about?! Well, these two turned this conversation into an idea, that idea then turned into inventing a new “green” process in the making of whiskey, this then turned into a business and dreams coming true.

austonianwhiskey_1547290515010307032

What sets Austonian Whiskey apart from the other whiskeys? Traditionally whiskey is typically aged in wooden casks/ barrels, generally made of charred white oak. Since Lawrence and Frank have created a magical (closely under-wraps) green technology to get the traditional vanilla oak-y taste of a “barrel aged” whiskey without the barrel, we can have cocktails AND save the trees! That’s right folks, do you get what that means?! NO trees are harmed in the making of this whiskey! (I need a shirt that says that btw 🙂 ) The impact can be HUGE y’all. Just think about it, if everyone switched their whiskey choice to Austonian Whiskey it would save about 95% of the trees otherwise used by “the other guys”

austonianwhiskey_1488026830715051157

It won’t just stop there though…. Do you know what happens when forests are cut down? it’s not just killing trees, it’s also displacing animals. The animals that live in the forests now no longer have their habitat, their homes. I don’t know about you, but that pulls on my heart-strings <3

Just think, there’s a barrel shortage right now; how many trees have already been cut down? How many animals have already been displaced? Now think about the fact that with Austonian whiskey we can directly impact this. We have the ability to help save our planet in more ways than just recycling at home or composting.

Austonian Whiskey Hammock

I don’t want to sound like an infomercial here. I TRULY believe and like this product. I am not and have not been paid $$ to promote this product, however, I was given a sample bottle to try them out and hear their story. I want all you Lovers to know that I will NEVER promote something that I don’t truly love, like, use, or believe in. I will always have transparency and want you all to know that my blogs will always come from a very genuine place.

ALL that to say; I believe in this product. We need to get Austonian Whiskey out there!! Ask your bartender to add it to their bar program. Ask your local liquor store like Twin Liquors or Spec’s to pick it up. Follow Austonian Whiskey on Instagram to find out where they’ll be next. Let’s start our very own whiskey movement!! Whiskey can be GREEN!! even without food coloring and the luck of the Irish 😉

Great whiskey. Great Cause. Go Green.

Can a TeaTox Work? and Amazon Prime Day!

Good Monday to you lovers! How was your weekend? Who else is excited about Amazon’s Prime Day?! Hopefully you know WHAT Amazon’s Prime Day is??! Or have you been living under a rock? 😉 Welp, think Black Friday in July, but better, and only on Amazon.

The idea behind Amazon Prime Day is to entice people to sign up for Amazon Prime by offering INSANE deals – said to be better than Black Friday or Cyber Monday combined. To score on Amazon Prime Day you do have to be a Prime member, which is $99 per year, but they do offer a 30-day free trial. If you are interested in learning more about signing up for Amazon Prime, check out this link. If you’re not all about the online shopping with Prime Day, I do suggest at least taking advantage of their 30-day free trial to score some Prime Day deals! and I’m sure that your mind will quickly change.

Amazon Prime Day officially starts at 9PM ET TONIGHT!! July 10th and runs for 30 full hours. July 11th 2017 is the day they are advertising as “Prime Day”, but I would log on the tonight to try to get some early bird specials. I would absolutely suggest reading Amazon’s official guide on how to make the most out of your Amazon Prime Day shopping.

I have heard that there will be a lot of Amazon specific deals such as on the Echo, Kindle, etc. but you can also expect deals on things like TVs, gaming consoles, and so on. They are also offering an additional 20% off Amazon Home services, I’ve never utilized this aspect of Amazon Prime but I hear it’s pretty rad.

20170710_092936

Now, let’s talk about a “new to me”, Teatox, have you ever heard of it? It’s a detox but with tea! I’m a hot tea girl through and through. I’ve been drinking hot tea’s since I was around 5 years old and my grandma would pick mint from the backyard for our tea. Anyway, going back to glorious Amazon, I was checking out hot tea’s on Amazon and stumbled across all sorts of Teatox options. I’ll admit when I first came across these teas I was a skeptic and thought “Ew!” but to be honest, I already have very personal dark issues with any sort of detox. My issues with lots of detox’ are that a lot require not eating and when I don’t eat I get HAngry! After reading reviews and checking out ingredients, I decided on Zen Organics, 14 Day Teatox, Natural Cleanse.

20170710_092953

Zen Organics 14 day Teatox is entirely natural! When I say entirely, I mean ALL 13 ingredients! the tea itself contains, Senna leaf, Lotus leaf, Chamomile, Pu’erh leaf, Sencha green tea, Lemon grass, Garcinia Cambogia Extract, Rhubarb root, Fennel, Marsh Mallow leaf, Holy thistle leaf, and Malva leaf and that’s it 😉

As soon as it arrived I was excited to give it a try. It comes in a resealable bag to help with freshness, and also included is it’s very own cute little silicone “pea pod” tea infuser.

20170614_162556

Let me tell you, it’s delicious! Surprisingly delicious! I added a bit of organic pure blue agave to it for a little sweetness but it wasn’t necessary at all.

When on this Teatox you drink a hot cup every morning for 14 days on an empty stomach.

Day 1-3: I was loving the taste so much! but wasn’t really feeling much different with the exception of not being overly starving in the morning (I normally wake up so hungry I could eat Jeff’s arm off) and I’m also getting used to the new routine.

Day 4-7: I have more energy and focus and sorry for the t.m.i but…. I also noticed my “bathroom business” was becoming not just more frequent (for me) but also more regular.

Day 8-11: I noticed less of a “heavy /bloated” feeling and oddly enough I felt less anxious. I’ve suffered from clinical anxiety my whole life and I can’t really stand being overly medicated so I prefer all natural homeopathic remedies to anything else. I’m no doctor so I’m not trying to offer any medical advice here, I’m just saying I felt a small difference in my daily anxiety and the only thing new I was doing was using Zen Organics Teatox. When living with anxiety ANY difference is pretty substantial.

Day 12-14: I’m feeling more healthy, lighter, less anxious, and cleansed!! At this point I think it’s safe to say I’m feeling pretty awesome about this product and also kinda sad that it’s ending.

I’m not sure if Zen Organics will be offering a discount for Prime Day or not but it’s definitely worth the purchase. Check them out!

Since I’m on this Amazon and Prime Day kick and it’s just a few short hours away 😉 I’d like to talk about one last thing. If you’re a follower you’re aware of my partnership with JORD Wood watches and how much I love them. Well, I have GREAT news if you’re in the market for a new watch. JORD is now on Amazon!! For Prime Day they are also going to be having great deals! Check out the beauty below that I gave Jeff for his birthday last month.

IMG_0044

I know I’ll be checking out what JORD has to offer us ladies tonight for Amazon Prime Day. They make for fantastic gifts and the customer service is incredible! You can’t go wrong here.

20170509_174728

I’d like it to be noted I’m NOT getting paid to endorse these products, I just genuinely loved my experience with these brands and HIGHLY recommend them. I most certainly will be ordering more Zen Organics Teatox in the future. If you try out any of these products please share with me what you think. If you have any questions please be sure to reach out in the comments.

Good luck with your Prime Day shopping y’all! 

Until next time Lovers!

Not Your Average Drive-Thru

Gooood Wednesday to you Lovers! I’m back from having a longish Mother’s day weekend off of the blogosphere 😉 What’s been going on? Did you miss me, like I missed you?! hahaha!

Let’s talk about our lives and how busy they can get. You’re working, heading into a deadline, which can mean working overtime; or you have an 8-5 (ish), need to get home walk the dog, then head out to an event; or you have a family AND all of the above going on… Life gets busy! When is there even time to go to the bathroom let alone EAT?! 

Enter Sala & Betty and their “Slow food fast” concept. Named for 2 sisters, 1 of which loves the “dining” experience and the other sister who leads a busy life yet wants to enjoy the same type of food you would get in a great restaurant. Our friends had gotten there before us and found awesome patio seating for brunch on a saturday. Austin can tend to get super busy for brunch on the weekends, so I was feeling pretty thankful on this beautiful day. We wanted to celebrate one of my best friends and her new job (YEAH!! JESSY!!) and I think we did a pretty great job with Sala & Betty!

We all were having brain farts when it came to the menu since we all wanted ALL OF THE THINGS. That’s no lie, everything on this brunch menu was screaming “Pick me! Pick me!” luckily our server was patient with us. For the table we started with The Hair Of The Dog, which is a fried egg, layered with pork, amazing fries, queso, and served with a LoneStar beer ($10) or without the LoneStar ($9) Check it out below, it’s a thing of beauty! and I would imagine the perfect remedy to any hangover.

20170506_131034.jpg

20170506_131109

I ordered the Croque Madame for my entrée ($10) let me tell you, this lady was definitely easy on my eyes!! A fried egg on amazing bread, ham, cheese, Bechamel, and a side of fries.
20170506_132206

BFF Jessy ended up “one upping” our Hair Of The Dog by ordering her own topped with avocado. Everyone, I repeat EVERYone should order it this way!! So ding dang GREAT. Talk about instant regrets 😉 haha! I’m kidding (just a little) this dish is awesome however you order it. I don’t think that anyone can go wrong with topping everything with an egg, avocado, or pig (prepared any way), or in this case ALL 3!

20170506_132131

Moving on to the Drive-thru at Sala & Betty. The drive-thru offers what they call “Family meals” serving 4 people (1lb of meat) with options varying from Beef ($34) Pork Shoulder ($32) and Chicken ($32) There are other Ala carte, fresh made sides, kids items, “make at home desserts, and sandwich options. Since we had such a great experience here, I very much look forward to enjoying all the other offerings by this very well done establishment. They have an amazing thing going and I recommend you give them a try! Tell em’ I sent ya.
