Palm Print in the Mountains

Fashion/ Travel

Happy Thursday everyone. If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I went to Canada last month for my friend Amanda Miller aka The Miller Affect’s wedding. The wedding was in Canmore, Alberta to be exact. Canmore is a beautiful, quaint town in the mountains about 1 hour away from Calgary. It was my first time traveling to this are of Canada and I was amazed with how picturesque everything was. Canada is absolutely stunning! If you ever have a chance to visit the area, I highly recommend you do so. Read more

Keeping It Fresh: Spinach Salad Featuring Rubbermaid FreshWorks

Until recently I was always throwing away produce that had gone bad, until I discovered Rubbermaid® FreshWorks™ Food Storage containers. I found Rubbermaid FreshWorks in the food storage aisle at my local Kroger. There is no telling how much money I have wasted over the years by not storing my veggies and fruit in these containers. The containers are sized for optimal storage of most commonly purchased produce. I stored mushrooms and strawberries separately in the FreshWorks medium size containers for about a week. I also stored blueberries for over a week inside a small FreshWorks container before preparing them for one of my favorite Spinach Salad Recipes. Read more

My OREO Creation Contest

Food

“Down in New Orleans, where the blues was born. It takes a cool cat to blow a horn. On LaSalle and Rampart Street, the combo’s there with a mambo beat. The Mardi Gras mambo, mambo, mambo. Party Gras mambo, mambo, mambo. Mardi Gras mambo, ooh. Down in New Orleans…” – Mardi Gras Mambo 

Now when I hear the Mardi Gras Mambo, I think of Mardi Gras, and of course King Cake. Since I was born and raised in Baton Rouge, LA, only a one hour drive away from New Orleans, I grew up going to Mardi Gras Parades and eating King Cake. I enjoy eating King Cake because it is such a sweet treat. Recently I was challenged by OREO as part of the “My OREO Creation Contest” to come up with my own unique flavor. So I decided to combine my love for King Cakes and OREO’s into one bite of deliciousness. The King Cake OREO would be a Cinnamon cookie on the outside, and a creamy cream cheese flavored inside; including layers of purple, gold, and green in honor of Mardi Gras’ colors. Read more

Mommy and Me Monday – 4th of July 2017

Fashion/ Little Me and Free/ Mommy and Me Monday

If you have followed my blog for a while then you know that every year we take a trip with my parents to Destin, FL to celebrate the 4th.  Tomorrow I will be driving six hours from Orlando to Destin to meet my parents there. Disney World has been fabulous, I mean it is the happiest place on earth, but Destin is also a fabulous destination to visit. If you have never visited Destin, FL then you should definitely put it on your list. The white sandy beaches and aqua water look like something out of a post card, plus there are lots of good restaurants in the area you can visit while you are there. One of my favorite places to go to while I am there is AJ’s. They always have a really good band, and a lot of people on the dance floor. Read more
