Ginger Rosemary Pommosa

At dinner with the Hubs on Valentine's weekend I had a twist on the Moscow Mule...rosemary infused vodka, cherry hearing, lime and ginger beer. That got me thinking. I love champagne and there's nothing better than a mimosa with some biscuits and gravy and a side of eggs on a Sunday morning. But what about Sunday evening for a girls night and the Academy Awards? I set out to recreate the traditional mimosa using champagne, ginger, lime, rosemary and instead of cherry, pomegranate juice. Perfect for a Academy Awards party!

My Secret to Radiant Skin


Exfoliating is a beauty ritual that always gives me instant gratification. There is nothing better than the feeling of having super soft skin! I always thought for an exfoliator to be effective, it had to have a grainy and scruby texture. Instead, it was more likely to be abrasive and probably resulted in my skin being more irritated and aggravated in the long run. I have a few exfoliators that I love and one of them is NuPeel by Theraderm.

DIY Wine Cork Hearts

If you've followed me for awhile, you know that I love making something fun every season for the branch I have hanging in my breakfast nook. For winter, I made mini pom pom hats and for fall, falling leaves. Hearts are my favorite shape and I'm always looking for a new DIY to incorporate into my Valentines decor. Today I'm going to show you an easy DIY made with wine corks.

Review: Nakd Bars


One of my goals for the new year is to stay clear of processed foods and eat healthier. I always thought cereal bars were healthy but when you look at the nutrition label, you see a long list of ingredients including sugars, additives and colorings. I was thrilled when Natural Balance Foods contacted me and asked if I'd like to try out their Nakd bars. Nakd bars are not your typical cereal or granola bar, they consist of usually two to four ingredients of fruits and nuts and are cold pressed to form a chewy bar. They are low in saturated fat, gluten, wheat and dairy free with no added sugars or hidden ingredients. Suitable for vegetarian and vegan diet plans!
