Holidays in 2020 look so much different then years past but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate at home. Halloween has always been my favorite holiday. The best part of Halloween is dressing up and hosting parties. Oh, and of course the candy and treats! Since there won’t be Halloween parties to attend this year, try having an intimate Halloween pajama party with your close friends and family. I’m showing you today how to build a Halloween charcuterie board, the perfect balloon decorations and my top 5 favorite Halloween movies to watch this year! Halloween Charcuterie Board I’m such a sucker for a good charcuterie board but I wanted to add a twist and create a Halloween version. My twist? I used an Ouija Board!! Hopefully this isn’t a bad omen…lol! If you already own an Ouija Board make sure to clean and sanitize its before use otherwise you can […]

Nothing screams summer more than celebrating the 4TH OF JULY! When I look back, I realize I never use to be that excited about the upcoming holiday. Sure, I’d attend a BBQ here and there, watch fireworks and parades and always wear a cute festive t-shirt. But I now believe no other day defines summer quite like the 4th of July! So bring on the red, white and blue because I’m ready to celebrate! I’ve linked all the best finds for Americana apparel including this lightweight sweatshirt and the cutest home decor pieces from some of my favorite retailers. Come along and go shopping with me!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin She’s alive! Whoa! I know it’s been awhile. Sorry I’ve been so MIA, but life can be tough sometimes. As I sit here at my little bistro set on my back patio, I question some things that have been weighing on me lately. The main thing being my blog. What am I doing this for? Does it matter to anybody? How do I balance a full time job, a blog, family and a social life? Should I be a part of Reward Style? How can I put myself out there more? Will I run out of ideas? Do I even have a voice? Okay sorry, I sound so melodramatic! I just question if I can keep up with this and will it even matter. I guess if it only matters to me than there’s a reason to continue. I started blogging because I was looking […]

I have found the easiest copycat recipe for Wendy’s Frosty’s. Anything that has to do with ice cream, now that’s my jam! I actually haven’t had a Wendy’s Frosty in about 5 years until about a week ago. What have I been doing with my life that I don’t eat them more? Oh that’s right, I’ve been staying away from fast food. Anyways, when I got a frosty the other day, I thought there had to be an easy way to recreate them at home with my Cuisinart Gelateria Ice Cream Maker. The answer is yes, yes there is! We purchased the 2 qt. Cuisinart Gelateria Ice Cream Maker at Sur la Table over this past summer when we did our first cooking class, Celebration Cakes. It actually was an impulse buy and it took us months to actually take it out of the box and figure out how to […]
