Happy Friday! I hope everyone had a great week. This week, I got inspired to get my back to baking. Since Matt bought me a kitchenaid mixer for Christmas, the only think I've used it for was for mashed potatoes. Yes, I use it for mashed potatoes. This make them creamier and fluffier! So here's one of my favorite recipes. It's great for breakfast with a cup of coffee.

Dry
1 ½ cups all- purpose flour           
1 Tsp Baking Soda
1 Tsp baking powder
½ Tsp salt

Wet
3 Bananas
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup melted butter
1 Tbsp milk

Crumbs
1/3 cup brown sugar
3 tbsp all purpose flour
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon

2.     Mix your dry ingredients. Set a side
3.     Mix wet ingredients
4.     Mix dry and wet mixture together and put the batter in the pan
5.     In a separate bowl mix the Crumb ingredients and sprinkle on top of the batter
6.     Bake for 50 minutes. Use the toothpick method to check if the bread is fully baked.







I've always wanted to take photos in a field of long grass. When I was growing up I always see it in movies. The kids or the couple roll down the hill of grass. I told Matt of my idea and He just looked it like I'm crazy. "Hun.... you can, but that's going to hurt like a bitch..." Even just running on the with shoes on was uncomfortable. haha! The photos were perfect though. It's just the way I've envisioned them. With this perfect setting, having a perfect flirty summer dress made the whole beautiful. Do you have something you've always wanted to do in your life since you were a child?

You may have notice that I only wear gold accessories. From my stack of rings to my only gold watch I wear. I have mentioned this before that I only go for neutral tones when it comes to my style. My friends always make fun of me for not having too much color on my wardrobe. I prefer neutral tones and have that minimalistic look. I'm always on the look out for any new unique pieces in the fashion world today. And I've found something that was already in my collection. The addition of another Jord Watch was a trill. Something I've been considering to get since I fell in love with my older one. I've paired this watch with a dress, jeans, and even with heels. It may have a laid back look but it goes with everything. I've since guys wearing theirs with a suit and tie. It pairs perfectly with any weather all year round. Having unique pieces in your wardrobe is a must. I believe those key pieces gives more meaning to your look. Something that makes your overall appearance different. Speaking of being different, these watches can be customized as well. Have one engraved with the initials for a special person in your life. Wouldn't that be a perfect gift? Or just your own initials and treat yo self!

I use to hate an "all black" outfit. I use to think its dead or too boring. As I grew older and my style started to change, I've worn so many all black outfits. I keep leaning on them. They are easy and laid back. They are also very neutral and easy to pair with other piece from the closet. Are you also a fan of an all black outfit?

We've been very busy lately since we got back from our trip to St. Lucia. I can't wait to share with you the adventures we've experience from our trip. Another thing we've been busy with is a new addition to our family. A new puppy! Her name is Sage and she's a hand full. Our sleep has been split every few hours every night. What is everybody been up to?

The weather lately has been amazing. This pass weekend I've decided to work on the backyard. There was a lot of rain that came during winter and made the soil very healthy. This was good news for the plants but the weeds were also way too happy about it. The weekend was spent pulling weeds and trimming the plants. We're looking to finish all that cleaning in a few weeks. "Crossing fingers" What has everyone been up to these days?







We are currently in the Caribbean Islands right now and I can't help but fall in love with straw bags. It is also a huge trend right now everywhere. It is the perfect accessory for a nice brunch out with the girls or a stroll by the beach with you better half. Here's a few of the ones I've been eying on from Shopstyle.
