WEEKEND AT HOME: Birchbox Home

 

birchbox-home-snow-dayHere in Memphis, we are scheduled to have great fall weather this weekend. So, I might actually start doing some Christmas window shopping. You know, just trying to decide to get what for who. I already have some thing in mind for some, though.

I have a couple of friends and family who have recently either moved to a new spot and/or bought a new house and this Birchbox Home: Snow Day box would make a great gift for them. This is the third box limited edition box from Birchbox and its filled with some pretty fabulous items for home and personal use.

HOME BODY: Stuff Around My Home I’m Loving Right Now

HOMEBOUND_6_22_13

I had a pretty decent week. I worked everyday this week and everything went pretty smooth there, even though I was doing my job and covering for someone who was on vacation all week. So, combine long work days with hot weather, I spent my evenings at home sucking up A/C while going in on On Demand and enjoying being home and unwinding.

I love having an abundant amount of lemons within reach for ice water and iced tea. Plus, the $5 bouquet I grabbed from Kroger added a nice pop of freshness and color to my living area. The dry erase board I bought to write down notes has turned into a place for my roommate and I to write words of wisdom and even a guestbook at times for our guests to sign and write some very funny and/or inappropriate things….at times. I’m still tripping over the way my pillar candles have melted into bulbous wax entities that I love!

However, my favorite thing that I’ve been loving to do is participating in impromtu water ballon and water gun fights in the late night hours with friends and neighbors. So much fun for these hot and sweaty summer nights.

I’m really enjoying my life and the people and things in it! *grinning*

Inspired by Chevy Malibu Style


When it comes to car, a lot of people look at the outside, but I seem to focus more on the inside. Case in point, Chevy’s new Malibu 2013. A little sidenote, I received a 2004 Chevy Malibu for my college graduation that my little sister drives now and it’s still going strong. Anyway, the interior is sleek, clean, and sophisticated. Chic and appealing. So, I created a Pinterest board inspired by the new Chevy Malibu. Click here to view my Malibu Inspired board.

The images I pinned were images I thought reflected the interior, such as clean make-up, leather outfits, and sleek boots.   Smart technology, impressive styling, a luxurious interior and confident handling all come together in the all-new 2013 @Chevrolet #Malibu to take your drive to the next level. Discover  #MalibuStyle.

The History of the hand shaken Daiquiri

Daiquiris. I love just even saying the word, because it makes me think about the drink and wanting to get one after work to unwind and celebrate surviving another work day. However, I’ve never really sat back and thought about the history of the daiquiri. So, after a quick little search I was quick to find out that daiquiris were invented in a bar in the 1900s in a bar in Santiago, Cuba by a group of American mining engineers. Interesting! They started to become more popular in the 1940s during wartime and the rest is history!

Although there are very different recipes for daiquiris, sometimes the best way is to keep it simple like the Bacardi recipe below.

  • Step 1: Moisten the rim of a tall glass then dip in sugar to rim the edges
  • Step 2: Pour over ice
  • Step 3: Garnish with a lime wedge
  • Step 4: Enjoy!

This summer, rediscover the daiquiri. Bacardi Hand Shaken Daiquiri is the perfect addition to any summer get-together — fun, delicious, and ready to pour. Bacardi Hand Shaken Daiquiri is made with Bacardi Superior Rum, tangy lime and sugar. It is a perfectly balanced cocktail that is not too sour and not too sweet. http://bacardidaiquiri.glam.com

Dressing Up My Crystal Light Green Tea with Raspberry!

Crystal Light’s On the Go packets give you the ease of a delicious and healthy alternative to soda with the same ease and convenience. They offer a variety of flavors to help keep you happy and hydrated all summer!

For the past week now, I’ve been shoving soda to side and instead, reaching for a Crystal Light’s Green Tea Raspberry on the go. As a lifelong Southerner, nothing screams summer like a glass of ice tea in a mason jar. So, I dusted off these jars that I’ve had nestled in my cabinets and fixed me a glass of Green Tea Raspberry splashed and garnished with lemon and lime. Let me say that the Green Tea Raspberry tea ALONE is amazing, but sometimes you have to switch it up and this combination has been my addiction to unwind after work and I do see me shaking this monkey off my back anytime soon!


So, if you are looking for a quick, healthy and delicious alternative to soda, you should definitely check out Crystal Light’s On The Go mix packets. I recommend the raspberry green tea. AMAZING!
