Friday Favorites...Trays

Tray's just make everything prettier in my opinion. Whether it's on a coffee table, vanity, in your office or as in this case...serving tray's just make everyday objects come to life. My daughter had a few friends over earlier in the week and I made mini smoothies for their after school snack. I sliced  watermelon and decided to keep it simple and healthy. What I loved most was the girls excitement over the presentation of their snack (who would have thought?) and sometimes it's just the little things that can brighten your day. Cheers to the weekend!

A few of my favorite trays here, here and here.

Try It Tuesday-Easy as Shiitake...

I decided that our Monday night dinner needs a theme, so I stole Jessica Seinfeld's Meatless Monday for our family. Last night I made the recipe pictured above and I couldn't help but giggle as I was making it. Maybe it was because I couldn't wait to see the look on Mark's face when he sits down to eat a plate of veggies for dinner or if it's me just thinking of how little the kids complain about eating the green leafy stuff.  I know that with having two different "themed" dinners for the week I feel pretty darn good just "winging it" for the remainder. I thought it would be fun to throw in a couple of other random links that you might want to try just because this week has started off with some much needed good vibes.

I'm sold on any recipe that has six ingredients and is Easy As Shitake.

My aunt has me looking at Baby Foot for my next home pedicure. I've never heard of such a thing...

My bling phase has come and gone but for some reason I want to try these sandals on.

I want to whip out a can of spray paint and try an Ikea hack with this shelving unit.

Friday Favorites-Spring White Out...

One of my favorite looks for spring and summer is wearing all white. It's so on trend right now and I can't help but jump for joy every time I see an all white outfit. I'm so stealing this mannequin's look and wish I would have picked up this blazer last month in Florida. Mom, what was I thinking? I do have a cotton white blazer that I did actually wear more than I thought I would last summer. However, for that dressier look, this Relaxed Boyfriend Blazer takes the cake! Oh and of course...make sure you have stain stick on hand because murphy's law is usually in full effect when wearing white from head to toe ;)

Try It Tuesday...Organic Face Products

As our skin "matures", if you will, I think we all are looking for those magical face products that will make us look and feel young again. My skin is a little sensitive and dry and that's why I'm a lover of this Houston humidity and these three game changing, organic products.  I use them every morning and night to balance the redness that I sometimes get and to moisturize. After cleansing with a clarisonic, I mix one drop of the serum with two squirts of the toner and pat (key word is to pat!) on my face and neck. The toner that I use is for normal to oily skin, but the rose and red tea help to balance my chemistry out. Last but not least, I apply the renewal creme and let dry before I put on my face. Don't worry, these products won't break the bank and have you dipping into your "shoe allowance" to pay for those cute summer sandals you've been eyeing recently.

Easter Weekend...

On Easter Sunday we have taken on this tradition of affectionately "smashing" cascarones (confetti eggs) on each other. I had never heard of such a tradition before we moved here but when in Rome right? We are looking forward to this three day holiday weekend as I'm sure everyone else is too. Life has been way too busy lately and I'm looking forward to some quality family time. #truth. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend doing exactly what your heart desires...Happy Easter Peeps!

Oh Lilly...

"Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink"

It's a bummer that I just took a trip to South Florida without wearing Lilly Pulitzer. Nothing screams "take me to the beach" as much as one of her dresses does. Oh...and by the way, Lilly Pulitzer's capsule collection is coming to Target on April 19th and I'm counting down the days. I wore one of her dresses to my brother's beach wedding years ago and it's something that I will never part with. I'm loving all of the pieces including the home, kids and beauty products and it's going to be a hard decision on what to buy...I want it all!

Try It Tuesday- Spring Into Shoes...

If you know me, you know that it can never be too now...F-I-N-A-L-L-Y that it is truly warming up around here I can start wearing some of my sandals and sneakers that have been hibernating in my closet this winter. Shoes always fit and come back around in style so maybe that's why I have such an obsession with them! I've rounded up 6 pairs of great summer shoes that will put a spring in anyone's step. I have two pairs from this list that are in my closet just waiting to be worn. My Stan Smith's haven't had much love from me since February so it's definitely time to break them out this spring.  On a whim I picked up pair number 2 because they reminded me of a Pedro Garcia shoe without the sticker shock so the jury is still out on them. For now the four other pairs will remain on my wish list which will probably be a mile long before the summer is over.
