Mother's Day Gift Ideas

My mum and I both love shoes, and since these are the cutest and most comfortable sandals for summer I think they'd make a great mother's day gift. 
Both my Mum and Meeme burn candles constantly, and they both have me addicted to candles. These gorgeous candles would make a fabulous gift in a cute basket.
Whisker Graphics products some fabulous items. One of them being Divine Twine which comes in a variety of colors. It's great for tying packages, cookies or getting crafty with. I know that my mum would be in heaven if she received these. 

What Mum wouldn't be in heaven if she received this bag?

 It's said that the right shoe can change your life- just look at Cinderella. Have you found the right shoe yet?
Throughout the entire year I want shoes that are not only cute, but comfortable as well. Especially during those spring and summer months I want the cutest shoes possible whether I am out shopping or chilling poolside. That's why I am completely obsessed and madly in love with OKA b. Shoes.
  {Tiffany popsicle pink with leopard}
OKA b. was founded on the principle of fashion and comfort. The shoes not only are the cutest things ever, but they are the most comfortable shoe I have ever placed on my foot. Awesome little fact about OKA b. Shoes - they are 100% recyclable, waterproof, MADE IN THE USA and priced under $40. Hello Lover.

Sour Cream and Dill Potato Salad

Sour Cream and Dill Potato Salad
2 pounds small red potatoes, scrubbed
4 eggs(whites only), hard-cooked and diced
3 ribs celery, diced
3 green onions, thinly sliced
2 Tbls. diced dill pickle
3/4 c. mayonnaise
1/4 c. sour cream
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
2 tsp. dried dill
2 tsp. diced dill pickles

Cut the potatoes into bite-size chunks and place in a saucepan. Cover with water and boil for about 10 to 12 minutes, until just tender. * poke with a fork and it'll fall off.  Pour off water, set the pan in a sink or larger pan of cold water to cool the potatoes quickly. In a large bowl, combine the potatoes with eggs, celery  green onions, and diced dill pickle. In another bowl, combine the sour cream, mayo, and Dijon mustard. Add to the potatoes and stir gently to combine. Fold in the dill and add salt and pepper to taste.

Coral Crush

Morning Beauties! I don't know about where you are, but here the weather is a hot mess. Muggy and rainy it is feeling more like mother nature just wants to skip right over spring. While mother nature might not want to embrace spring I am embracing the gorgeous colors, flowers and trends that spring is offering. My current springy color crush is coral. Anyone can wear coral whether it be deep or pastel - it looks gorgeous paired with any complexion. 

(what do you call your grandma?)

What's your current color crush?

Easter Dresses

Easter is on Sunday and I have yet to come up with an outfit to wear! I am thinking the second dress would be perfect. What do you think? What will you be wearing for Easter?

Jalapeno Poppers

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

Fresh Jalapenos, 2-3 Inches In Size
Cream Cheese, softened (I used fat free)
Bacon (I used Turkey Bacon), Sliced Into Thirds

1. Cut jalapenos in half, length-wise. I would recommend wearing gloves with chopping and scrapping - if you touch your eyes you'll definitely be having a bad day. With a spoon, remove the seeds and white membrane. Smear softened cream cheese into each jalapeno half. Wrap jalapeno with bacon pieces (1/3 slice).  Secure by sticking toothpick through the middle.
2. Bake on a pan covered in foil at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes.  Serve immediately, or they're great at room temperature.

Do you host Easter or do you go to someone elses house for Easter?
Do you do themed Easter decor?

I would love to be home for Easter as my Mum always creates a fabulous meal as well as a beautiful tablescape. So I will be hosting Easter at my place, which means this weekend I best go out shopping for my decor. I will be giving my table a color theme which will be soft and feminine.
