Frisky Eats: Make Your Own Ice Cream Sandwiches!

Once upon a time, I worked in an ice cream parlor called Scoops. On slow summer days, we would create ice cream sandwiches out of any and everything in the store. Homemade chocolate chip cookies with moose tracks ice cream dipped in fudge? Yes, please. What about lemon poppy pound cake with a cool layer of vanilla bean ice cream and rainbow sprinkles? Amen! We never sold these creations, but I can assure you, they were tasty. Try one of these scrumptious ice cream sandwich recipes or grab your favorite sweets and get creative!

My best friend has been on a bit of a homesteading, make-everything-yourself kick lately. Every time I call her and ask what she’s doing, she replies with, “Oh, just whipping up a fresh batch of nut butter!” or “Melting some coconut oil to make my own deodorant. Want me to make some for you?” So when she came to visit a few weeks ago and said, “Let’s make our own makeup,” I was like, “Umm…yes please!” We put on some music, looked up some DIY makeup recipes, and in less than an hour, we’d both mixed up a batch of our very own powder foundation, using ingredients I already had in my kitchen. Now I’m addicted to DIY makeup, and excited to try to make my own blush and bronzer next. Here are 7 reasons why I’d encourage you to give DIY makeup a try:

New Item For Your Bucket List: An Ocean Massage

Floating in a calm ocean is super relaxing. And getting a massage is blissful. But what if you could do both at the SAME TIME?? Now you can, thanks to the One & Only Resort on Australia’s Hayman Island. The resort opens in July, and One & Only’s spa is offering a pretty drool-worthy incentive to book some time there: “Ocean Dreaming Massages,” AKA massages performed on the freakin’ ocean. Here’s the description from the spa website: Keep reading »

Style Stealer: Olivia Palermo Does The Canadian Tuxedo Justice

Style Stealer: Olivia Palermo Does The Canadian Tuxedo Justice

Olivia Palermo, professional pretty person who shops and attends parties for a living, has done it again! I mean, I guess it isn’t hard when nailing a perfect outfit is basically your reason for existence. But still! I love a Canadian tuxedo — aka denim on denim — but it can go so badly. Olivia’s rocking it well, though, pairing her skinny jeans and denim shirt with a chic black and white blazer, gorgeous gold stilettos and a bright yellow clutch. The next time the temps take a dip, I’m going to copy cat her. And now you can too with these pieces… Keep reading »

Oh My God I Love Your Hair: The French-To-Fishtail Deconstructed Braid

omg-i-love-your-hair-braids

I love my long hair, but I don’t love when it hangs against my face like limp noodles during the humid, summer months. After a quick, much-needed trim, Kelly, a Master Stylist from Hairroin Salon, decided to style my long locks into a french-to-fishtail deconstructed braid to keep me cool and looking chic. She started out by French braiding my hair behind one ear and sweeping the braid to the opposite end of my head, where she finished with a messy, off-center fishtail braid. To hide the elastic holding my braid together, she wrapped small pieces of my hair around the band and used bobby pins to secure it, giving me a pretty, effortless look. In a nutshell, I loved my hair and want her to be my new best friend.

One Home Storage Unit, Three Ways To Use It

Remember those wire storage cubes with the plastic corner connectors? I purchased bright orange ones in college and used them to store DVDs, toiletries, makeup, even my bulky home printer. One day, someone (who shall remain nameless) bumped into it and my world came crashing down. My shit went everywhere. Luckily my printer survived, but I never looked at these cubes the same way. Cheap? Yes. Cute? Yep. Versatile? Absolutely. Sturdy? Hell no. After that incident, I swore off cheap storage cubes.

When iCube contacted me about their new easy to assemble storage cubes, I was doubtful. After receiving a sample, I would have traded my wire mess for these plastic cubes in an instant. These lightweight stackable cubes can be customized with shelves, doors, and drawers to meet any storage need. What is my favorite part? The doors allow you to discreetly stash tampons, condoms, and toys.

Here are three of my favorite iCube storage solutions.

Frisky Eats: A Blueberry Bonanza!

As a kid, I loved blueberry muffins but hated fresh blue berries. I always found tiny, tasteless and pointless. I don’t know what was wrong with me. This year, I have discovered my passion for blueberries. I have been buying them in bulk at Costco and eating bowls of them for breakfast! At first I was adding a few to my granola, but within days, I was sprinkling a little granola over my blueberries. With the Fourth of July quickly approaching, I am considering a blueberry feast. First course … blueberry chicken salad!
