Boil some water for your tea, or grab your kettle. Fill a tea infuser with Some food grade lavender(I bought it at the farmers market) and Organic Guayusa Sage Lavender Tea.(I bought at the market). Let it steep and then add some ice, lemon slices,and the juice of one lemon. Lightly Sweeten however you like, I used some Organic Raw Sugar. I like it a little tart. Let it sit in the fridge until ready to serve. I waited a few hours and it was perfect. I even popped it in the freezer along with prepared glasses for an extra chilly treat. I hand make these little faerie tea infusers. Macymarie.storenvy.com Serve it in a pretty glass with lavender straws, lemon slices, and ice. I would have put a fresh sprig of Lavender but I forgot it.

I love my French Coffee Press! Love It. It makes the perfect tasting, and amount of coffee, plus it is so easy. It looks really pretty too, and perfect for picnics or camping. I really like The coffee a cocoa from Trader Joes, it is so good, and not sweetened. I also scored this adorable baby pink panda mug with a nifty suction topper that looks like a cupcake almost. Great Invention, I even use the top for my wine!! I got in in Little Tokyo in LA, but I’m sure they are online. Coffee is not only comforting, and smells amazing, but it has many health benefits, and a mild laxative, hehe. It is said to help prevent numerous cancers, dementia and Alzheimer’s too, yes please. One more cup of Coffee before I go….
Summer sunsets in the garden with an organic smoothie, candles, and a book. I love taking a little time everyday to spoil myself, relax, play dress up, and day dream. This smoothie is my new obsession and so addicting! I stumbled upon it on a menu at a random restaurant, and had to make it! I am obsessed with grapefruit, strawberries, pineapple, and bananas. Then all blended together with a big hand full of Ice makes for a sexy citrus pink drink. It really is perfection, I love the combination of flavors, and the slimming, and skin benefits. Plus fruit really makes your skin glow. When it is really hot it is hard to eat sometimes, so this is an easy, healthy,filling, and refreshing treat. So Good. I love candles! I can not live without them. I love being by fire in general, especially outside when the sun is going down. Warmth, comfort, and light, whats not to be absolutely mesmerized by. Enjoy your life, and make every little thing you do special, because you only have this one. Take care of it. So If you want to take a further step towards sexy, and radiance, make one of these. Unless you don’t care for grapefruit, you will hate this. My mom taught me to love it, but it wasn’t too hard. Just blend fresh squeezed grapefruit juice, a hand full of each trimmed strawberries, frozen fresh pineapple, ice, a banana, and splash of water. So yummy, and worth every sip.

Blend fresh cut watermelon chunks and toss them in a blender. Use a cookie cutter or fruit popper to make a few heart to garnish, I put them on a skewer. Next toss in a your strawberries, water,and a good splash of rum. Strain into a glass to remove the chunky parts, discard them. Next grab a few glasses,set aside. Also set out a small plate and pour some sugar on it. Mash up a strawberry using a fork to a pulp, add some raw sugar and mash more. Then swirl the rim of your glasses in the strawberry then into your sugar. It should look pinkish, slightly blushing. Slice a few strawberries at the bottom and garnish, then put in your watermelon heart wands! Freeze until you are ready. Remove from freezer, and muddle some fresh organic mint leaves, and limes, with brown or raw sugar. Top with your juice, and more rum if desired, some ice, some soda, then champagne. Enjoy. Oh and put out the leftover ingredients on ice, and make more as you go. Drink up lovelies.
I love Brunch more than the word itself! Nothing better then afternoon drinking, and eating breakfast food! In the process of making a one of a kind brunch book to sell after summer as well. Also search my recipe section, and or food section for sexy recipes. This is a special brunch because it is my 13 year anniversary of dating my boyfriend, my sun and stars. So I set out a blanket, decorated a bit, and set out yummy food, and fresh mimosas. Well Strawberry Watermelon Mojito Mimosas. I also set out our favorite, a bagel bar, with the works: Whipped cream cheese, lox,capers,dill, cucumber, pepper crusted bacon, avocado, and tomatoes. Then some Salami, cheeses, a quince paste, and a few crackers. Also a yummy minted watermelon heart fruit salad, and fresh berries(see recipes). You just keep a bucket of ice going with liquor, beers, fresh juice, and champagne. You make the first cocktail all special and perfect like, with freshly muddled mint, and brown sugar, then top off your drink as you go. It is so fun to share a bottle of champagne as the bubbles flow over your glass, lips, and hands. Thirteen years ago this Beautiful Brasilian, surfer, and guitarist, changed my world. It was love at first sight even though we took it slow. I was his art tutor, hehe. He saved up to take me to Disneyland, and boy did he spoil me. As I curled next to him in bed, and spent the night with him for the first time, He asked me sweetly,” When we go to Disneyland for the weekend, can we go as a couple.” I was like yes, and I love you. He said I love you for the first time to me as we entered Disney Gates, he whispered it in my ear in Portuguese. I melted. Eu Te Amo. Needless to say, here we are 13 years went by faster than a blink of an eye. We have had our struggles, pains, fights, ups & downs, but always remained hot for each other, and I hope this fire never goes out. Electricity still comes through our hands as we hold them, and his warm arms make me feel forever safe. Love conquers all, and I am so blessed for this one. Two beautiful free spirit messes of Virgos, broke, fabulous, and talented. Two Peas in a Pod, with a Lust For Life, who refuse to grow up:) Cheers, to love, life, and the pursuit of Happiness.
The 99 cent store has these cute blue dolphin sandwich cutters right now! The same joy dolphin imagery made me feel as a kid, came right back when I saw this. The angels of the sea. It makes two dolphins, and a heart, perfect. Worth every penny! You could cut other types of dough as well! Summer dolphin biscuits for brunch, or Lisa Frank cookies. Today I made my favorite, PB&J. And had to have a soda, my weakness. It is so easy to make the simplest meal elegant and fun. I love to start with a fun plate, or tray, and straws. Target has these cute little trays for 1.99, and pink and blue clear crazy straws for the same fee. Then just add some decor like shells, brooches, pearls, tiny mermaid bottles, a flounder spoon….anything you fancy really. Eating for me is a ritual and I try to make it special every time. Put love and care into all you do, and make life fun. Enjoy.
