How will you be decorating your pumpkin this year?
Summer foods are all about keeping it simple. I’ve been enjoying making this strawberry salad for family and friends and it’s a big hit. It really could not be easier to prepare.
6 cups fresh sliced organic strawberries
1 bunch of fresh mint
2 tablespoons of confectioners’ (powdered) sugar
Wash and slice fruit. Place into serving bowl.
Chop fresh mint into thin slices.
Dust salad with sifted Confectioner’s sugar before serving.
Kombucha is a naturally carbonated and fermented tea that has gained in popularity over the last 6 years or so as a natural energy drink with probiotics and energizing properties. It is viewed as a healthy alternative to mainstream soda.
I’ve been a fan for years and got a kick out of the kombucha brand called Kombucha Dog I spotted in Los Angeles.
Kombucha Dog’s blend was delicious and, as a total bonus, its labels feature photos of adorable pups available for adoption. If one of the pooch models looks like the pet of your dreams, you can visit Kombucha Dog’s website for adoption information. Love it!

For those of you that stop by frequently, you know I rarely touch on fashion topics. Don’t get me wrong, I adore fashion, but I’m more likely to buy a piece of art or a fabulous weekend away than a fancy bag or Christian Louboutin shoes. But this fashion site is right up my alley and I just had to share.
Vaunte is a site where you can purchase clothes literally right out of enviable and truly curated closets. I jumped on some black Gucci sunglasses from stylist, editor and blogger, Tienlyn Jacobson’s closet for only $105. I can’t wait for them to arrive. Go check it out. Total high fashion but affordable and fun…
Need a good winter gift idea for someone you love? Someone who also just so happens to be cold all the time? The husband got me a Little Giraffe Bella Plush throw for Christmas and I love it. Little Giraffe is, of course, better known for its uber soft baby blankets but this one is full sized for us Mommas. I honestly feel like Linus from Charles M. Schulz‘s Peanuts gang. I dragged it all the way to Tahoe for a weekend trip and it’s keeping me warm as I write this very post…
