Mood boards

Good evening!  It's been a while since I've posted, I've been busy with my health blog Fig & Pear ,running around with my two girls and preparing for my up and coming Art Open House next weekend which is super exciting!  So this evening as I sit here trying to put my 2 month old to sleep, I decided to create a mood board of my current passions, these colors will eventually make it's way onto a canvas for sure... I'm also currently digging the modern "clean lines" look, black & blush, grays and creams and plush plump florals.


Blue Hues, My Top 5 on IG

I love posting on Instagram and also viewing the lovely artistic photos that float around my feed, such amazing colors to see, such fantastic and talented people behind the photos.

If you don't know by now, I adore the color blue!  (Hence the "Indigo" in my blog name). Within the past few weeks my feed has also become a little happy place for me filled with pretty inspirational blues.. I just thought I had to share, hope you enjoy!

@NectarandStone Has become a fav Instagram of mine, she creates the most magical desserts anyone has every seen, a combination of all sorts of chic colors, not to mention her signature gold leafing.

This marble combo of grays, teals, whites are so sophisticated!

@ZincDoor's Post of this lovely royal blue door is just everything!  Such an amazing pop of color against the white walls..chic chic!

@badgalriri is working that deep blue dress made by the one and only Zac Posen...go on girl rock that dress!

I've been following @Lukeshadbolt and @Garypeppergirl because they continue to amaze me with deliciously vivid photos that just pop out of the screen. This teal water makes me want to dive right in.

@JossandMain just had to serve up this lovely Indigo velvety sofa on their site...so lux!

Slow Cooker Recipe: Lentil Soup

Because I will soon become a mother of 2 and because I already cook 3 different types of meals (that includes one for myself) for my family, I've decided that I need to find an easier, faster way to make healthy foods that I can divulge in without putting in the hard work.

Earlier this week, I decided I needed something healthy in my body after giving in to unhealthy pregnancy cravings all week.  Lentils were in the cupboard along with some handy ingredients to make this soup come to life.

As of right now, I am eternally grateful to whomever invented the "slow cooker".  This handy device saved me lots of time and effort and even made me look at peas in a different light.

Here's what I threw in the slow cooker:

p.s.  I did not measure any of the ingredients, so use your discretion when adding these ingredients

1/2 teaspoon of Sea Salt
2 Sprigs of Rosemary
1/2 of Chopped Garlic
1 Cup of Chopped Mushrooms
1/2 Cup of Chopped Onions
A Sprinkle of Seasoning Salts or vegetable bouillion cube

You can also add: white or sweet potatoes for more of a hearty soup.
