Jewels for less

My Aunt Donna gave me a pair of earrings this past Sunday at Easter. She purchased them from a cute online store I had never heard of before called Bauble Bar, which is so reasonably priced!

Here is the pair she gave me:

I'm loving the aqua color now and lately have been sporting lots of gold toned jewelery.

What I'm eatting.....

This is by far my favorite new recipe, thanks Pinterest for this one!

Zesty Lime Shrimp and Avocado Salad

Finally a recipe, where I actually like all the ingredients! I also love the fact it is a cold salad made with out distrusting mayo. Perfect for the hot summer weather! It's light, healthy, and best of all it tastes great. This recipe is from a great blog for healthy easy recipes- Skinny Taste!


  • 1 lb jumbo cooked shrimp, peeled and deveined, chopped

  • 1 medium tomato, diced 

  • 1 hass avocado, diced

  • 1 jalapeno, seeds removed, diced fine

  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion  (used a bit more)

  • 2 limes, juice of

  • 1 tsp olive oil

  • 1 tbsp chopped cilantro ( I used a lot more)

  • salt and fresh pepper to taste

  • How to:

    1. In a small bowl combine red onion, lime juice, olive oil, pinch of salt and pepper. Let this marinate at least 5 minutes to mellow the flavor of the onion.
    2. In a large bowl combine chopped shrimp, avocado, tomato, jalapeƱo.
    3. Combine all the ingredients together, adding cilantro and gently toss.
    Adjust salt and pepper to taste.

    Here's my final product:

    Cheap or Chic? Fashion Star edition

    Sometimes you see something and you have to do a double this case on the price tag.

    and here is the second look....

    Can you spot which has the larger price tag?

    The first is FOREVER 21 and has a price tag of $17.80

    and the second was on NBC's Fashion Star show and was designed by Orly. There was a bidding war between Macy's and Sacks, but with the bid of $120,000 it is now sold at
    Sacks Fifth Ave for $295

    I was highly disappointed with the way the dress from Orly was changed. The runway version looked a lot better...I honestly was ready to shell out the money for the design, however the final product looks less appealing than the cheap Forever 21 dress!

    Here was the original....I loved the color, length, and the pocket detailing! I do not understand why they changed the look so much and also why did not offer in the other colors shown on the runway.

    Watch Fashion Star Tuesday nights at 10 pm EST on NBC.

    No, not the kind you eat....

    This is the grocery store Giant's home delivery service and my new love!

    I had recently saw a neighbor getting the deliveries and thought it had to be expensive. With work, school, and a lot of other things going on these days (hence why my blogs have been absent) I decided to go online and see for myself if it was worth saving the time of going to the store, doing the shopping, loading and unloading of the groceries. To my surprise it was very affordable! The prices of the items were the same as in store, they accept coupons, and the delivery charge was just under $8- which is waived your first 60 days of ordering and there are also several promo codes online for $15 to $20 off an order!

    Click on the link above to get started! I spent about 20 minutes online doing my "shopping" and when the driver came, she carried everything inside and sat it in my kitchen! Since you pay when you are online, there was nothing for me to give to the driver, but my coupons! The next day you will receive an email with your invoice and the total amount you were charged- since they apply the coupons.

    I cannot say enough good things about this service! Serious time saver and the quality of the produce and meat, was fantastic!
