Desert Dream'n Faves

May 31, 2017

It's June! Which means wherever you are it's probably hot or on it's way to becoming hot. While it's not my daily style, I am intrigued with the 'desert' looks going on in the home & fashion pertaining trends. I think mainly because it's bright & fun--plus, really screams 'summer'

Below, I have added a few desert faves & am linking to a past Teen Vogue article I wrote about adding the Desert look into your home/room--read that post here, called: 10 Desert Decor Picks 

Also, I have included a few of my succulents & cactus here. The cactus' name is Flora, but I need YOUR help naming my pink potted plant-leave a comment in the section below.

Stay hot. 😜  {lol} & Don't forget to read the Teen Vogue piece!

'90s Babe: Birthday Post!

May 15, 2017

So...20 plus {I'll leave you guessing ha ha} 😁 year ago today I was born.  Honestly, some things don't change. Growing up in the '90s I went through many phases. Some have come & gone---others remain true & the same. I still love dalmatians, crafting, Martha Stewart {lol} & fun pop songs. Also, I still love ice cream.

{Note, The ice cream was gifted to me to review all opinions are my own}

Does anyone else who's health conscious have a hard time finding ice cream that both healthy & delicious?  Seriously, it's a struggle--which is why I was so happy to try Arctic Zero.

Arctic Zero {c/o} All opinions are mine 
Aside from their assortment of unique flavors {currently, I am working my way through Rocky Road} the pint{s} are 75 calories per serving, GMO-free, low glycemic, lactose-free & contain protein & fiber.

Great right but the taste....Personally, I like it--it's not as milky or creamy as the traditional ice cream, but with all the non-additives & lower fat/calorie content you can dress it up with whipped cream, sprinkles or whatever--if you'd like too. Actually, I enjoy it the way it is--the rocky road has pieces of nuts & marshmallows mixed inside 😍

You can learn more about Arctic Zero here & shop their flavors here--Summer is coming & ice cream is summer's favorite! Have you ever tried Arctic Zero?
