Urban Outfitters Goodies + Free Shipping

Urban Outfitters Goodies + Free Shipping

I used to work at Anthropologie which is owned by the same company as Urban Outfitters. I used to overlook Urban Outfitters because I thought it was only for cool hipsters living in their studio apartments in Brooklyn. Which yes, their target audience may be that demographic but you can actually find some really fun items there if you’re willing to do a little digging. Plus if you sign up for…

Healthy Chunky Monkey Ice Cream Recipe

Healthy Chunky Monkey Ice Cream Recipe

Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey ice cream has been my all time favorite ice cream flavor / comfort food / basically best friend since my preteen years. The first few bites are downright delicious but if I eat more than a small bowl I get this yucky feeling in my gut – no, not lactose intolerance. but guilt! The amount of calories a tiny pint of Ben and Jerry’s has will make any one feel sick to…

DIY Gray and White French Dresser

DIY Gray and White French Dresser

As I’ve stated in the past, I’m crazy about all things French. From French Fashion to French Decor, those Frenchies just get it right. I’ve been trying to bring a little essence of France to each area of my home and my latest adventure has been to create a shabby chic inspired dresser for our bedroom. I bought a really sad dresser+mirror set at a thrift store for $40 that looked like it was…

10 min. Grilled Peaches

10 min. Grilled Peaches

Now I’m not sure you can really even call this a “recipe post” considering it’s basically a 2 step process but they’re so delicious and easy to make that I couldn’t not share. These are the perfect dessert to make when you are short on time and especially if you’re grilling your main meal already. These grilled peaches are so sweet and taste like summer should: sweet, sticky, and light.

Last week I blogged about how big the Pineapple Trend is and how popular pineapple prints are in women’s fashion and accessories. After I wrote the post I just kept seeing more and more pineapple stuff popping up, especially in home decor items. In fact, while I was out shopping I found the perfect ceramic pineapple at TJ Maxx for $15.00 then on my way home I saw a big sale sign for Tuesday…

Trend Alert: Pineapple Prints in Fashion and Accessories

Trend Alert: Pineapple Prints in Fashion and Accessories

Have you noticed a serious pineapple trend lately? It seems like everywhere you go there is some kind of pineapple print or motif on something. Pineapples have always been kind of a quirky fruit as is so I actually enjoy seeing them everywhere since they are so fun and different! I’ve also noticed the pineapple motif gives a bit of a retro or vintage theme to whatever it’s featured on. Here are a…
