{ #COOKBOOKCLUB }: The Skinny Confidential: A Babe’s Sexy, Sassy Fitness and Lifestyle Guide by Lauryn Evarts!

OKAY so…

it’s been a while but the Champagne at Shannon’s cookbook club is BACK. Holllla!

I’ll be honest with y’all, we haven’t been cooking as much as we’d like. From birthday celebrations, to friends / family in town, to travel to work events, Erik & I relied more on restaurants than our own kitchen.

As soon as we got back from Palm Springs, we made a pact to cook as much as we can this summer. We just feel better, it’s something we both really enjoy, & our time in the kitchen really brings us closer. Cooking & making a meal for someone, I think, is one of the most intimate acts you can ever do. Anyone else agree?

So damn Shannon, back at it in the kitchen… & with a vengence! I have so, so, so many fun {& EASY} recipes to share with you guys. I’ve talked a lot of fashion and not enough food & beverage in my book so that’s finna change.

SO- I’m thrilled to announce this summer’s cookbook club for June & July:

THE SKINNY CONFIDENTIAL BOOK by Lauryn Evarts

+++ buy here

For starters, if you’re a fan of her blog, The Skinny Confidential, you NEED her book. Seriously.

It’s filled with gems & I find myself constantly referring to her tips in it. It’s such a fun Saturday morning read. I like to put on some music, light some candles, get Lucy on my lap, sip some green tea & just flip through the pages. It’s an easy, breezy, fun read FULL of value {!!!!!}

When I first announced the cookbook club on both my blog & instagram, I got  requests for quick, easy, healthy meals. Immediately, I KNEW this would be my summer Champagne book club book back in January.

If you are unfamiliar with Lauryn Evarts, get out of the rock you are hiding under and go stalk tf her blog, you’ll be obsessed. Bet. Stalk her HERE. Also, see her blog recipes here… but I gotta say, her booze category is my favourite 😉

Real talk, but her blog is one that really inspired me to start mine. In fact, she is the first blog I started reading back in 2012 – I randomly found her on Instagram & something about her just RESONATED with me, I can’t explain it {back in the day, you know, when I was using the Kelvin filter thinking I’m so cool #THROWBACK}.  I constantly refer to her as the OG for that very reason.

She is incredibly inspiring & TSC is one of my favourite reads on the web. She just gets it.

I can really go on and on with my love letter to Miss Lauryn so I’ll spare y’all – but first, let me say one last thing about her. she has created an AMAZING community with her blog & I’ve even made some of my good friends through her platform.

Now THAT’s a very cool thing to provide from a blog.

As far as the cookbook club, I am going to make the following for June & July:

A Sex Kitten’s Salad – page 30

Lemon Love Salmon – page 45

Naughty Steak Marinade – page 58

 The Ass Tightener {Smoothie} – page 51

I mean… I couldn’t NOT with that last one, right?!

All of Lauryn’s recipes take literally no time to make, are SO easy & made for babes constantly on the go. They are fun to make, but will make you feel even better… and are so damn tasty!

Her recipes are some staples of mine for weeknights when I don’t have time to even deal. And obvs, I love her cocktails, like her Kombucha Spritzer.

Her book is more of a Lifestyle book vs a full blown cookbook, like her blog, but all her chapters are so fun – she even talks the love chub & how to fight that! It’s also laced with easy ass workouts you can do at home.

If you want more Lauryn & her recipes/workouts, check out her Bombshell Body Guide. I’m also a member there too & let me tell you, those recipes are AMAZING, especially the skinny enchiladas. The workouts are 27 minutes & extremely effective. Join here.

So come hang, cook with me, etc etc. Also, if you’re on instagram, show me what you make with the hashtag #champagnebookclub! Any other Lauryn fans? Come say hi!!

Alllll right y’all – that’s all I got. Erik & I are off to Houston for the weekend since my little from my Delta Gamma days is getting married! So excited to get back to my home base but I gotta be real… I’m REALLY excited for some queso, tex-mex, & bbq. Any fun Houston reccs? LMK! So much has changed!

xx Shannon

  • happy Sunday 💙 just caught up on big little lies and I have soooo many theories 🌊 #momentswithsunday #biglittlelies #hbo
  • one of my fav things about aromatherapy is how different scents appeal to you depending on how you’re feeling. Eucalyptus smelling particularly good right now? it well help bring the clarity you’re craving . Chamomile for tonight? this will make it easier to decompress & relax. 🧖🏻‍♀️ I love the aromatherapy from @aeraforhome - I use the oils on my wrists & in the bath as well as with their seriously smart diffuser for home. It brings a nice luxe hotel vibe & can always set the mood. The diffuser is sleek, chic, & smart: you can connect it to wifi & Alexa to control and adjust! All of Aera’s scents are hypoallergenic, non toxic, cleans, & completely pet safe. Swipe through to see it the diffuser in action + a suuuper satisfying video 💆🏻‍♀️🔮 i have a full review on the smart diffuser {& why it’s so smart} and the aromatherapy oils on www.essellesse.com • link in bio ⚜️#aromaistherapy #aera #aeraforhome #ad
