Happy March y'all.  

How is it March already anyway?!   I'm speechless...  The only positive thing about it is the warmer weather that will hopefully be here soon.  

I tried a different camera for these pictures, the Nikon 1 JC3, which I don't use much to know the best setting. Wasn't too impressed this time...too much yellow. Pictures usually turn out great when I'm just messing around with the camera, trying to figure it out....of course.  So let's hope for the best next time...or just better.

Cocoa Almond treats

An easy and delicious sweet treat...

All you need is:

* 1/2 cup coconut oil
* 1/2 cup cocoa powder
* 1/2 cup smooth almond butter (or peanut butter)
* 1/4 cup raw honey 
* 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Melt coconut oil.  Blend all ingredients together in a food processor or blender.  Pour into silicone ice cube tray (different shaped ones are fun) or paper-lined muffin tin cups (or silicone muffin cups).  Chill for 30 minutes or freeze for 10 minutes.  When firm, remove.  Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator or freezer.

Spring must-have Bags for every budget

1  /  2  /  3  /  4 - obsessed   /  5  /  6   /   7   /  8  /  9  /   10  /  

Bags have turned into an obsession (latest one is #4 - what a classic beauty...even though the word "obsession" might be sightly too strong).

With Winter sticking around for way too long, pastels and bright colors are just what's needed to start the Spring the right way. I think it's obvious what colors I seem to be crushing the most. Not only are these colors perfect for Spring but work beautifully year-around.  And there is something for everyone's budget. 

Which one is your favorite?
