Greek Goodness :)

This week I received my #GoodVoxBox courtesy of Influenster and I am just impressed.

20130830-212144.jpg
Particularly, the Zone Perfect Greek Yogurt Bars. Now I don’t get impressed easily, but I was truly happy with this product!

Zone Perfect Greek Yogurt Bars come in 3 flavors, Greek Yogurt Chocolate, Greek Yogurt Raspberry, and Greek Yogurt Vanilla Berry. My Influenster box contained Vanilla Berry.

I’m munching on it now as I write, it seriously tastes like candy. I can’t believe it’s healthy! One bar contains 3 grams of Fiber and most importantly, 12 grams of Protein. Whoohoo for all the health food and fitness lovers out there!

I don’t do food reviews often, so you know it’s good when I do πŸ™‚

Check themΒ out at your local store and online. I know you’ll be obsessed with them πŸ™‚

Talk to you soon!

Love and kisses,

Blueberry YumYum!

There’s something about warm summer days filled with laughter and sunshine and memories of going picking blueberries with my grandmother when I was younger, it’s nostalgic.

It just happened that we had a yummy batch of blueberries growing in our garden that were ripe for the picking, and what better thing to do with ripe blueberries then bake scrumptious muffins?

I owe it to the lovely Mariya from Teacups and Cinnamon for inspiring me and giving me the idea for these muffins. Actually, tempted me and made me drool over her photos would be the real story but shhhh πŸ™‚

Check out her post here and check out her blog, it’s one of my favorites and I love seeing her photos and drooling over her recipes πŸ™‚ oh and it doesn’t hurt that she is drop dead gorgeous!

Anyway back to the recipe, I could barely get the berries away from my sister before she gobbled them all up.

Starstruck!

Today’s look is centered around this amazing handbag brought to you by Forelyse I love the look and style of the bag- Its girly yet has a rocker twist with the studs.

I kept the rest of the look casual, with some fun animal print flats and bright lips.

Happy Monday!!

Every weekend is so much more meaningful and special to me after a long 40 hour week of work, and I really take every moment I have to just enjoy life.

It’s the little things that matter the most.

Fresh Flowers :)

Oh my goodness the past few days have been perfect- sunny skies and not a cloud in the sky.

It’s hard to come back to reality after days like these.

I took a quick getaway to Seattle. It ’twas a good day, bought flowers just because I can, and really enjoyed every moment.

Sometimes you really have to stop and smell the flowers, literally. Oh and the fish. πŸ™‚

Hope you don’t mind all the pictures!

Little red dress and a-thread :)

Hey lovelies!

Hope everyone had a lovely fourth of July weekend!

I had a lovely 4 day vacation, it felt so good to finally sleep in and enjoy the mornings!

I had the opportunity to try out some gorgeous clothes from a-thread, an online boutique that specializes in women’s clothing and accessories; and decided this weekend was the perfect opportunity to wear them out and about in Seattle.

(Please excuse the tan lines- I fell asleep in the sun! )
