Dead or Alive

Day of the Dead Figurines from Polanco

I'm in absolutely in love with these earrings I have, but I'm stumped with what to wear them with. Since all of you lovely bloggers have amazing taste, I figured that y'all could help me out. Any suggestions?

I Swear I'm Not Obsessed...

Two bruschetta recipes on one blog? just happens that I have 2 really delicious recipes. You can do a lot of variations with this recipe. I like to mix this with some tortellini and steamed veggies to make a scrumptious pasta salad. Don't bother measuring everything, just taste it along the way and add what seems right. It's a super easy and looks pretty impressive when you make it. Enjoy!

Start with about 2 cups of quartered cherry tomatoes (note:if doing this as a pasta salad base, you'll have to increase everything a little bit)

Add about 2-3 handfuls of parmesean cheese.

Finely chop 8-10 basil leaves and mix in.

Stir in about 1/8 cup of balsamic vinegar (I prefer white balsamic)

Finely chop (or use a garlic press) 2 garlic cloves (I actually doubled that cause I'm kind of a garlic freak...lovely right?)

Finally add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste. I usually like to add some chopped sun dried tomatoes in oil, but I was out this time.

Scoop onto toasted baggette slices and voila!

ps:I swear my next recipe will be a totally different fromt the last two!

Roses Are Red...


"Florals are back"was obviously last night's message on GG ....or was it that Chuck Bass can't ever change (did you really expect him to just prance off to Europe with Blaire with absolutley no drama?)?

Of course I beelined for my computer and searched for some tamed down (and cheaper!) versions of their attire as soon as I heard the "xoxo" sign off. So here, my friends, is some flowered garb you can afford.

(The name says it all, sells any sort of flower hair acessory you can imagine)


(My favorite of all of these pieces, hopefully I can get it for my friends' graduation)

This One's For the Ladies

Check out this new(?) Flight of the Conchords video.Not only is it hilarious, but it also totally inspired me to embrace the whole 70's skating on the boardwalk vibe (another activity my 70's playboy pool party alter ego would do,lol).

What I would give to spray paint these gold, and cruise around my neighborhood.

Ch-ch-check them out here.

ps: Speaking of Flight of the Conchords, I got my friend the movie Eagle Vs. Shark for her bday. She loves FOTC, so I figured she'd adore it, but I've never seen the movie. If any of you kids have, is it good or not so much?

My Summer Uniform

Green Romper from H&M

I'm planning on wearing this everyday during the summer. Low maintenance,comfortable and will go with most everything. It'll help me get some serious summering (yay for making up new verbs) done.

(ehh, sorry for the low quality pic. I'm slowly learning that I'm no photographer)

One of Those Nights

I've had a pretty stressful week (banquet, upcoming finals, job applications,etc.) so of course I was THRILLED when my aunt sent me this late birthday gift(aunt working at Ulta=best packages in the world). It was perfect because I LOVE baking (especially cupcakes) and who can resist a nice bath every now and then?)

It's basically a 2 in 1 bath fizzer. The "cake" part fizzes away in the bath, leaving the "frosting" as soap. And it has a candle on top, just for extra fun ( I made my sister sing Happy Birthday to me while I blew it out,just to make it legit).

Had the banquet last night. It went really well. I'll post more on that as soon as I get my friend to burn pictures of it.

Now stop reading this and go give your mother a hug! (like I'll be doing

ps: Really idiotic blog question...but what exactly is tagging? Is it just answering those questions or what? Don't mock me to harshly for asking, I'm kind of one of those people that have to look up any type of lingo or slang on urban dictionary. Lame, I know.
