Whether I am painting, crafting, reading magazines, blogging, or watching movies in bed, I make a little glamorous environment with light snacks and a drink. Life is too short to not spoil yourself and feed into your creative indulgences. I made fresh squeezed grapefruit, orange juice mimosas, and grapes, figs, and cheese. Oh and dark chocolate covered marshmallows, yum. I always light candles, being near fire is so comforting. Just put together a tv tray full of pretty things and elegant snacks, light candles, and pick at it as you do your thing. Pretty lingerie makes it even better. A few more pics of how I like to live. Wine, cheese, fruit, and bed.

I have always ate tons of grapefruits. I used to love watching my mom sugar and eat them with a jagged little silver grapefruit spoon. I never put sugar on mine, I usually eat it fresh, but sometimes I do sprinkle them with Truvia sugar. When I get the munchies on a diet,I always reach for a cold juicy grapefruit, and slim tea. I really do eat one a day. The cute little cookies are from Brasil, diet coconut! So yummy, and I love the little beach hut scene embossed on them.
Low in calories, and high in fiber and vitamin C, grapefruits are a super healthy choice, and aid in weight loss. Grapefruit is high in enzymes that burn fats, has high water content and has less sodium. A combination of these three characteristics make grapefruit a perfect food for increasing your body’s metabolism. So if you want to shed some extra pounds, eat or drink grapefruit juice, every day. Eating one a day can also lower your cholesterol. It is also good for your skin and aids in a beautiful glowing complexion. You can even toss the peels in a bath for extra skin softening and a wonderful scent. Between these ruby red gems, and coffee, I am battling my appetite one day at a time. And so my love affair with grapefruit has resurfaced. Trader Joes has big bags for $3.99 each. You can get the Tripple Leaf super slimming tea from most supermarkets, really good in aiding some weight loss.
I love Fresh fruits for breakfast, especially honey yogurt on papaya! It’s also fun to eat new kinds like dragon fruit. So sexy and colorful. Fruit is so yummy, full of fiber, digestive enzymes, vitamins, and it does wonders for your complexion. A healthy Glow. A perfect way to start your day, along with tea or coffee.
I love spending nights alone in bed, in my vintage pjs, watching movies,making my little pony mimosas, and eating breakfast for dinner. Pink fluffy pancakes with pink whipped cream, and strawberries, drizzled with agave. Yum. So happy.
I just had to make this tonight. I saw this in some Womens World magazine when I was in line at VONS and it has been on my mind ever since. Plus I really love sharks. This is so easy to do. First you cut a slant of the bottom so it sits up.(thats what part you use to make the fin later. Then you get masking tape as your guidelines as you cut out the mouth, remove some rind, and last cut triangles into it to make teeth. Then melon ball scoop out the flesh, and throw it back inside with fruit salad and gummy fish. Oh and feel free to use blueberries as eyes, and put on some sunglasses. A new summer party staple. DUDE.
I love these little laughing cow wedges, and when I saw these strawberry and cream ones in my aunts fridge last week, I died! I could not wait to get off work the next day to go buy some,but my aunt suprised me at work with them, with multigrain crackers, and strawberries. Whats not to love, its yummy, healthy, and it’s baby pink wrapped up in a gold package. So when you get the munchies and you want to eat something cute and low in calories, this is perfect. I will come up with some recipes soon and post them.
