Victoria's Secret Sleeveless Ponte Top + Mashed Potatoes

As I've mentioned before, I'm never one to toss away circulars without at least browsing through them first. Firstly, I just want to say that the new updated design and layout of Victoria's Secret's catalogs is really great and makes their product look so much more appealing. Not only that, but they accept returns in stores now, which is a big incentive to purchase from them even more now. This outfit below really caught my eye when I was flipping through their catalog so I impulsively purchased both pieces to try.

Unfortunately, the Pleated Mini Skirt is too big on me but I love the clean simplicity of a pleated pleather skirt in white. Though the skirt didn't work out, I loved the Sleeveless Ponte Top as much in person as in the picture. What attracts me the most is the unique cut-out neckline and how I'm also partial to ponte because it's a more structured material that is comfortable.

My goal is to share all my favorite recipes so here's my fail-proof mashed potatoes recipe. I'll be specific when I post recipes that are healthier versions of the original but this here is a classic mashed potatoes dish:


1 1/2 lbs yukon gold potatoes, peeled and quartered lengthwise
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoon heavy cream
2 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon milk
salt & pepper

1. Put potatoes in saucepan. Add 1/2 tsp salt. Add water until potatoes are covered. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, 15-20 minutes, or until done - a fork can easily poke through.
2. Warm cream and melt butter, together, either in microwave or stove. Drain water from potatoes. Put hot potatoes into a bowl. Add cream and melted butter. Use potato masher to mash potatoes until well mashed. Use a strong spoon to beat further, adding milk to acheive the consistency you want. Salt and pepper to taste.

Serves 4.

Leaving you with the fortune cookie quote, "You show your true face to the people who really matter."
