Delightful Dishes

I am absolutely positively in love with Walmart’s new line of dishes from The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond. You can get yours here. It’s literally like Ree climbed into my head and created my dream line of dishes to perfectly complement my home. See for yourself, you’ll be drooling too.

Pretty in Pink, the final chapter…

This week I have featured two takes on styling a tulle skirt, or adult tutu. A classic look and a vintage look. Today’s look? A modern twist on the tutu. 
  
You know I love a good statement necklace, and I’ve been finding some great inexpensive ones on eBay lately. The one I’m wearing can be found here

Who says leopard can’t be a neutral?! I’ve had this pair of velvet leopard heels forever but you can find a similar pair here 
Pink lips are one of my favorite looks and I am currently obsessed with this Stila All Day Liquid Lipstick in the Bella shade. 
   
And of course, my lovely tutu is from the Jessica Kane collection on Cool Gal Blue and I paired it with a soft chambray shirt from Target’s plus size line, Ava & Viv. 

Doh! 

Homer Simpson isn’t the only one who loves donuts, apparently they’ve become all the rage. Instagram is flooded daily with donuts; donut craft projects, purses, pillows, stools, you name it. Some of my favorite insta bloggers feature them constantly…  

Kelly Mindell from studiodiy.com makes donuts into colorful accessories & works of art and has the best time doing it!


Sam Ushiro or aww.sam on Instagram even calls herself a “donut aficionado” and not only features the fried confection on the regular but even creates her own delicious donut recipes like donut s’mores! 
 

So when I saw this ever popular pastry turned pool float at my local target (buy yours here) I had to get it and try it out myself. Thanks to my super professional photographer aka husband, who was suspended over the pool Mission Impossible style to take it (just kidding..sort of), I got a picture of myself lounging in this sweet treat.  

 I still think eating donuts is more fun, but I’ll let this be a close second.
