Twist on a black dress: Organza

Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog. I am starting off this last week in June in this stylish head turning number. I was in the market for a tulle dress when I found something even better with this  black organza overlay dress. You might be wondering what the big difference is between organza and tulle, organza is a lighter (less stiff)  higher quality fabric.

Made from scratch healthy Granola recipe

Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog. Today I am sharing a quick, easy and healthy granola  recipe. I am huge fan of granola and it has become a favorite topping in my smoothie bowls. I eat it as a snack as is, add it to my parfait and I am thinking of new ways to add it to my diet. I usually buy it from the store but trust me there is nothing like freshly made granola. The crunch is simply different. The best part of making granola is the liberty to add ingredients that you love. My only advice is to make them with  healthy ingredients, because they are pretty addictive, lol. I made a  few changes to this original  recipe by my friend Young Empress.

Romper: 70's style for the summer

Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog. Summer is here and temperatures are rising. In Atlanta we are already experiencing triple digit temperatures, hey they don't call it Hotlanta for nothing, lol.  I have been gravitating  towards shorter lengths and lighter fabrics with the hot weather. Cotton, viscose and tulle fabrics and shorter length dresses, shorts and rompers are some examples. Today's outfit is no exception. I decided to try something bright and colorful with this 70's style romper.

Parfait my way

Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog. I am sharing the recipe for one of my favorite healthy snacks Parfaits! It is a pretty standard recipe with a few of my personal favorite ingredients. I always have strawberries in my fridge when in season and frozen blueberries is a staple in my freezer. Wild blueberries tend to have more depth of flavor, which is why I prefer it for my Parfaits. I always just grab granola and coconut flakes from my favorite organic store although I am going to try to make my own granola soon.This whole process takes about five minutes and it's the perfect dessert especially during the hot summer months. I will be serving this to my guests during my next summer event:-)
