Happy Labor Day! This is one of the best shopping weekend the year and lucky for us many continue into this week. I’m using the opportunity to stock up on a lot of fall clothes and items for Fashion Week. A lot of the pieces that are currently marked down below can be worn long into the fall and winter. I have never abide but the rule of not wearing white after Labor Day. I disagree completely and actually talked about why in this post. Here’s my Labor Day sales roundup going on this weekend.

BOURBON GLAZED SALMON RECIPEyummy salmon recipehow to make beets, how to make caramelized brussel sprouts

This is my absolute favorite salmon recipe! If you are looking for a delicious and healthy summer dish, this bourbon glazed salmon recipe is it! I have never liked rice so I added to sides of veggies which I’ll also share the recipe! If you love it please comment your results below! For more of my favorite dishes visit my recipes page!

BOURBON GLAZED SALMON INGREDIENTS

3 tablespoons of bourbon
3 tablespoons of brown sugar
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
1 tablespoon of lime juice
1 tablespoon of ginger
3 garlic cloves
1/4 teaspoon of fresh pepper
1 pound salmon (for 2 people)

BOURBON GLAZED SALMON DIRECTIONS

Combine all of the ingredients in a zip lock bag and marinate in the refrigerator for 90 minutes. Heat a skillet and add the marinade and the salmon to the pan. Sear for 4 minutes on each side. I HATE over cooked fish so be careful not to over cook. Plate the fish and drizzle the marinade on top. The marinade should reduce and become thicker.

BRUSSEL SPROUTS INGREDIENTS

10 brussel spouts (I like small ones)
4 tablespoons of wine vinegar (really any vinegar)
1 teaspoon of sugar

BRUSSEL SPOUTS DIRECTIONS

Steam brussel spouts until they are no longer super hard, but not too soft (about 15 minutes). Over medium-high heat combine brussel spouts to pan so they start burning. Slowly add in wine vinegar and sugar to taste. I like mine browned so I burn them a little to give them that caramelized flavor.

BEETS INGREDIENTS

2 beets
Juice from 1 lemon
1 tablespoon of coconut oil (or another kind of oil, but I like coconut oil for cooking, my hair and skin!)
Pepper to taste

BEETS DIRECTIONS

I don’t have the best knife skills so I like to steam the beets for about 20 minute (or until soft) before I cut them. If you don’t have a steamer you can just boil them. Then use a colander to rise them with cold water because they will be hot! Once they are cool enough to handle, use your finger to remove the peal and then cube them. In a bowl add the beets, lemon juice and gently mix. Add pepper to taste.

PEPLUM TOP Endless Rose | SKIRT Temptation Positano | HEELS ASOS | BAG YSL | SUNGLASSES Karen Walker

This weekend I’m headed to Portland! I haven’t been since last December so I’m really excited. I’m staying in the Pearl District and will be exploring more of downtown. I also love 23rd Street and Lake Oswego. One of my favorite restaurants there is Irving Kitchen. For brunch they have egg nachos, okay I know it sounds kind of gross but it so so GOOD! If you have any restaurant, activities or other recommendations I’d love to hear them!

The other day I wore this outfit to an event. So in love with the brand Endless Rose so I was really excited when I found this peplum top. I paired it with this eyelet skirt which I LOVE. I love yellow and lace and I felt like it looked cute with this top that is a little on the short side. Plus these pieces could also be paired with denim jeans or a plane top to dress them down for a more casual look. As I mentioned, Endless Rose is one of my favorite brands, check out this post wear I styled one of their adorable light blue dresses.

PINSTRIPE COLD SHOULDER TOP She In | BAG YSL | SKIRT She In | SUNGLASSES Karen Walker | WEDGES Steve Madden

My last day in Quebec City was amazing because we explored another neighborhood and went back to some of my favorite cafes. If you go to Quebec City check out La Maison Smith to get croissants and other pastries. They are all over the city and so good!! I wore this pinstripe cold shoulder top and it’s on sale for only $10! If you haven’t picked up these wedges yet, trust me you will love! They are so comfortable and I wear them almost everyday. Cue the eye roll emoji.

I have always loved small bags like cross body bags and clutches, very rarely wear a large tote bag. I love this clutch in pink but it also comes in two neutrals. Sad this is my last travel post from Quebec City (if you want to see more check out this post), but I’m headed to Portland this weekend so I’m excited about that!! If you have any recommendations please leave them in the comments below. I know I want to do some shopping when I’m there. I usually do all my shopping online but since Portland has a Nordstrom I definitely want to take advantage! Can you believe there’s not one in NYC?
