Recap of our stay at The Hilton West Palm Beach

It’s no secret we love a quick getaway and a family friendly place to stay. I typically choose Palm Beach, Florida for its under 155 mile drive, the delish food, beautiful sceneries, stellar shopping and to just feel tropical vibes. It was great to be back, it had been over 5 months since our last visit and we have missed the warmer climate. It’s been cooler/cold in Central Florida and when we saw a warm weekend approaching we headed South, as did many others.

Heart Hot Cocoa Bombs

 ... and just like magic, hot chocolate bombs are so trendy right now. I’ve seen some 6 packs on sale for $44. I’ll help you make similar ones for under $20.


Countdown to Valentine's Day

 As a Mom, I want the girls to remember special keepsakes from each holiday. As a child, everything is magical and pure innocence. I can recall certain decorations my mom put out year after year, which have now been passed down to me. Decorations might be things, but they can hold a special place of memories in ones heart... reminiscing the past. Speaking of time, I created a keepsake with the girls that we can count the days, or simply add a marker on a chart to signify a date. I created a Countdown to Valentines Day Calendar for us to pull out for years to come. I'll take you through the process and what you will need. 

Homemade Fluffy Chocolate Chip Muffins

 Homemade muffins are a favorite in our house, the girls ask for them if they are not in the glass container and the aromas from the oven are one thing my husband can actually smell. I had never been a fan of box muffins, ours would be dried out or never baked correctly. When quarantine started a shortage of the only box muffins the girls liked (Krusteaz Chocolate Chip) was out of stock everywhere, so I panicked. It was the one thing I always had prepared in the house to last us a week or so of breakfast/snack worthy food. After much research and searching the web, I tweaked a few recipes and made them into my own. Now, I don't think I will never by a box mix again, trust me if baking isn't your forte, it can be very overwhelming. Stick with the box momma, your doing great. If you utter the courage to start from scratch you wont regret it with this yummy fluffy chocolate chip recipe. 

New Year, an even bigger brighter sale

 It's almost time to celebrate the new year with an even brighter sale, the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Online Sale. I am certain it will be the biggest brightest sale of this new year. I am here to share some sneak peeks, styled looks of us in some amazing styles that are included in the sale and some tips for shopping.

Holiday Gift Guide 2020

 What a year it has been, I've never been happier to see the year come to a close; however, let us not forget the joy this next month brings. December symbolizes new beginnings and a rebirth or to start new. With all that has defined this year all I want the girls to remember is this final month of 2020 as nothing short of magical ... seeing the nutcracker, walking through lights, baking cookies, visiting Santa and much more. 

Now, the magic of Christmas morning begins with the presents. I hope to help guide you with some ideas in your journey to gift your loved ones the same magic mine experience. I must say, I am sharing items the girls either own, have on their wish list or what we have purchased for them this year.
