Nutiva Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
For as long as I can remember, I have always loved coconut. From the juicy flesh to the refreshing water, I could never get enough. So you can imagine how excited I got when coconut started to hit main stream. It used to be a task to get good bottled pure coconut juice without preservatives in the grocery stores, but now they are everywhere. Not only are coconut juice everywhere, the coconut oils are too!
There are many uses for coconut oil. I’ve decided to stick with the following 5 simple ways. Continue reading
Happy Monday! Today I am playing with the colors red, blue and nature’s green. The idea came to me as I was tilling my garden box in preparation for the spring vegetable season. After some good ole rain fall, our yard came to life with bright green grass peaking up everywhere and beautiful flowers blooming on every fruit tree.
On the color wheel, complementary colors are the colors that lie directly across from each other. To complement the green grass, I wanted to add some red on me. Of course, dressing all in red would be a bit much and I highly doubt I can pull something like that off. Instead I went for a more subtle style: using red in small dosage.
Bumble Bee and Suki love their daily strolls around the neighborhood. What dog doesn’t, right? An opportunity to go out into the world to sniff all the trees and bark at all the other dogs walking by. It’s a dog’s dream come true.
Hello! Happy Monday everyone. Macy’s recently had a huge clearance sale. And you all know I’m a sucker for sales. =) So I went and I dug through the mess over and over until I finally came out with this cute skirt from BCX. I adore the heavy material and the eye-catching color. The elastic waistband pulls in at the waist to reveal a flattering shape. I paired it with a simple long sleeve cropped top from Forever21.

Hi! Today I want to express my love for the fit n’ flare skirts. The one I have on was a gift to me, and I adore the floral designs. It goes well with the rose tights from Forever21. I am also loving the patterned tights. It brings so much attention to the legs when my wardrobe is plain and simple. These Jessica SImpson tights have designs right above the knee, which can turn a dull outfit into something a little sexier.
Even with the beaming sun in my face, it’s beginning to feel a little more like winter around here. The chilly air calls for lots of scarf days. Since I’ve started to knit, I’ve become a lot more interested in scarves, considering that’s the only thing I can knit at the moment. I find it’s also the easiest project to take on as an amateur knitter. If there are any knitters out there who would like to share their experiences with me, I am happy to hear it. Continue reading

Happy Friday! I hope you all had a wonderful week. The weather has put me in a very bittersweet mood lately. I’m sad that there’s no rain and we are officially in a drought, but on the upside the weather has just been beautiful. The 70 degree temperature in the middle of winter allows me to sport these Daisy Duke shorts from Forever21. I paired it off with a chunky sweater embedded with tiny faux pearls. I hope you all enjoy it. Have an awesome weekend!
Happy MLK Day, everyone. I’m in the office today but if you are lucky enough to get this day off, go out and enjoy a free day in the park. Here is a list of parks in California for you to look through.
I’ve notice my last few outfit posts have been a bit dark, so I’m going to change that by adding a little blue today. This fun sweater is from Kohl’s and I like the playful sequin pockets. They remind me of playing with glitters in my elementary days.
I do most of my gardening in the summer for a couple of reasons. The main two being that the weather is nicer and everything just flourishes in the summer. I’m definitely in the garden more when its warm, but I still tend to the garden when it’s cold. I’m slowing learning that there’s as much to grow in the winter as there are in the summer.
