Shopgirl: Foodie apps offer recipes for success

Food52 is one of my go-to cooking blogs, and it has recently released an app that encourages and helps cooks
who want to do more than just follow a recipe.

 

(Not)Recipes is an app that acts as a sort of community, akin to Instagram, offering cooking tips and advice from other home cooks on everything from secret ingredients to technique.

The Internet has done wonders for the average cook, and I know I find limitless inspiration from what other people are doing with seemingly ordinary ingredients.

(Not)Recipes is a free app, and you can find it in the App Store for iOS.

 

WHAT’S TRENDY: Palm Village, Augusta’s new Lilly Pulitzer store, is throwing a fun fashion party luncheon during Masters Week that is sure to ring in spring in style.

You can find all the details and pretty promo posters on its Facebook page. The event will be April 4 (Monday of Masters Week), from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

There will be an all-star chef luncheon, a swag bag for every attendee, and a Lilly Pulitzer raffle and pop-up shop at the
event.

It all happens at Club Magnolia, one of the beautiful hospitality setups on Magnolia Drive.

Check it all out at www.facebook.com/PalmVillageAugusta.

 

WHAT’S AFFORDABLE: I love drugstore beauty products, mainly because I like having the freedom to switch things up whenever I get bored.

For the truly beauty-adventurous out there, Maybelline is releasing a lipstick line that is anything but expected. Maybelline Color Sensational Loaded Bold lipstick line has 20 shades that are far from the usual pinks, reds and nudes.

This line has everything from white to purple to navy – again, for the truly exciting makeup trends that are hard to get from anywhere besides high-end makeup lines.

The line should be released in July, and at prices in the Maybelline range it might be motivation enough for me to give something out of the ordinary a try.
