Add it to your foods like other salts
Soak in a bath with it
Use on face as a scrub (try adding honey with it)

It’s… Friday Friday

It's... Friday Friday

In the words of Rebecca Black ‘It’s Friday’ night …and a lot of you are probably going out on the town. But remember it’s summer, dressing shouldn’t be as difficult…. there is no need for layering or heavy garments and accessories.

Try a simpler approach this summer… a cute little dress is easy to throw on with a great pair of your fav sky high heels.

If you walk like a penguin in heels … then flats are ok too! Summer is the prefect time to throw on a cute pair of flat pumps or oxford shoes. Pair this with a cute tap short, and maybe a crop top and you are ready for dinner and dancing!

But remember the MOST IMPORTANT thing about getting dressed is…. feeling confident! You are HOT honey!

Have fun and be safe

Dinner in the SUN

Dinner in the SUN

It’s hot out today… and getting distracted by Pinterest (as usual), is making me think about the perfect summer dinner.

Pinterest is always full of deliciously looking images, however although my replica’s never look the same they do end up pretty tasty.

Today an image that caught my eye was the summer peach and balsamic pizza (pictured above).

YUMMY!!!!

Below is the recipe, maybe you could make it too! It would be like one big internet dinner.

WHAT YOU NEED:
1 batch pizza dough
1 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
8 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced or grated
2 ounces soft goat cheese, crumbled
4 peaches, pitted and thinly sliced
1/2 cup coarsely chopped basil

COOK:
To prepare the balsamic reduction, pour balsamic vinegar into a small saucepan, bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the vinegar has reduced to 1/4 cup, about 20 minutes. Set aside and let cool.

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F or as high as your oven will go. If you have a pizza stone, preheat the stone in the oven for at least 30 minutes to allow it to get thoroughly hot.

Divide dough into tennis-ball sized pieces. Take one piece of dough and punch it down on a lightly floured surface. Roll the dough out into a circle approximately 1/4-inch thin. Place the pizza on a pizza peel or pan that has been generously coated with corn meal. Lightly brush with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Top with mozzarella, goat cheese, and peach slices. Drizzle the pizza with balsamic reduction. Repeat for remaining pizzas.

Place the pizza in the oven-directly on the pizza stone, if using one, or on the oven rack. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until pizza crust is golden and cheese is melted. Remove from oven and top with basil and drizzle with balsamic reduction. Cut into slices and serve.

Doesn’t seem all that difficult …

Anyway enjoy your dinner in the sun… I’ll be enjoying mine!
