Your Solution to the Same Old Recipes

Happy Friday, Everyone! So I’ve heard a lot of ladies complaining recently (including myself) that they’re sick of making the same old recipes that they’ve been making all summer. Everyone starts the summer all excited by fresh salads and grilled meats, but by the end of the season, understandably so, you grow tired of the same meals, and tired of thinking up new creations. Well …

Wine Opening, Take 2

A few weeks ago I replicated a video I’d seen online of a guy opening a bottle of wine using a shoe and smashing the bottle against a wall. It was my first attempt and a big success – woohoo! There have already been a couple occasions since then, mainly while traveling, that the familiar fear has struck me – “Oh no! I don’t have …

Back to School

Dogfish Head’s PB Tini

I’m back from vacation and though I have lots of fun stuff to tackle over the coming weeks, today I’m just easing my way back into reality by sharing my favorite cocktail from vacation – the PB Tini! It sounds a little weird, but it was DELICIOUS!!!!!! And interestingly I had it at a Dogfish Head Brewery Restaurant in Rehoboth, DE. I also scored this …

Spiked Floats

Last week Simply Entertaining by Kate posted a cocktail recipe that sparked a delicious idea – spiked floats! My kids were introduced to root beer floats this summer and loved them. I mean of course they did…floats are so yummy and refreshing on a hot summer night 🙂 When I saw Kate’s “Creamsicle” recipe last week, I thought it sounded so good, but I didn’t …

Pajama Time

As you’ve probably noticed by now, generally speaking my style is cute but practical and comfortable…well this applies to my pajama selections as well 🙂 God bless you if you’re slinking around on the regular in lacy negligees with your kids, but I just can’t do it. Too many questions about various “buttons,” hair placement, tattoo, bits that jiggle, etc. SO pictured above are a …

Pura Vida (fantastic lifestyle message and beautiful accessories in one)

Being in happy, sunny Florida this week, I figured what better time to post about Pura Vida than now! Originally their cute, colorful clutches caught my eye, but within minutes of being on their website I had 10 different clutches and bracelets in my virtual shopping cart. I ended up ordering the stack of bracelets pictured above with the feather, the “Yoga Girl Pack.” Their …

Ladies’ Wellness Night

Lots to cover today – Ladies’ Wellness Night & who won this past week’s Sunday Giveaway! This past Wednesday I hosted my first Ladies’ Wellness Night and it was a smashing success if I do say so myself! I’d expected 15-20 ladies and ended up with about 35. It involved a backyard, sunset yoga class, plentiful cocktails and shopping…basically my ideal evening 🙂 So let’s …

LOVING my new Spiritual Gangster swag…thanks to my friend, Shelly, telling me that it was on CLEARANCE at a local Chelsea Collective store! https://www.chelseacollective.com/home You may remember from prior posts how much I love Spiritual Gangster – one of my absolute favorite comfort wear brands. Their clothes are so soft and comfortable, but also good quality and stylish! They have fun sayings, funky colors, and …

1 Accessory, 6 Ways to Wear it…$28.

As I’ve mentioned before about shopping, the more useful something is, the better I’m able to rationalize buying it, haha! So check out the accessory in the picture. I found it at Norstrom when I was sunhat shopping last week. It’s by BCBGeneration and only $28! It caught my eye right away because of the colors and dual patterns…I thought it was such a cool, …
