Little Black Romper

My love for Rompers is as strong as my love for Peplum this summer! I may very well own over 10 rompers. But this little black romper is my favorite.

Minimal but it has all I need; neutral color, accent buttons, pockets – I love dresses and rompers with pockets.

The best part, is that it goes with EVERYTHING! I picked this one up at Forever 21 and have found some similar ones that you can check out and buy below, so keep scrolling.

Ps. On repeat are my new favorite earrings from Beck’d, the handmade earrings shop that I found while visiting Columbus, GA. Make sure to check it out.

Cajun Chicken Wings

Chicken wings are a must have here at home. They’re super easy to make, so I make them about once a month. And they don’t need to be thawed out which is great. If I haven’t decided what to make for dinner on any given day, I can take these out of the freezer and have them ready in under an hour.

While browsing around Pinterest I found this Cajun Chicken Wings recipe and decided to give it a try. It was delicious by the way.

Pretty in Pink and Peplum

Is anyone else obsessed with the Peplum Trend?

I clearly am! It’s what I wore for Mother’s Day. While my husband had to work, he was up early to take our oldest out shopping with him. And they surprised me with breakfast in bed, flowers, chocolates and cards.

Since he had a night shift, this meant sleeping all day in order to be awake all night. Not a lot of fun, I know. But that didn’t stop us – the girls and I – from getting dressed and finding something to do. While we didn’t do anything grand, it was nice to take them out and hang out together.

Tassels and Florals

At this point I’m sure everyone is very well acquainted with BaubleBar’s Sugarfix line for Target. While, I tried hard to stay away from these pretty accessories, I failed miserably. I bought two pairs of tassel earrings. At least, I have contained my shopping impulse and only purchased two pairs. 😉

If we’re friends on Instagram, you probably saw them already. If not, go follow me so that you can see sneak peeks of what I share here! This is one of the pairs in photos below.

Making Burrito Bowls is So Easy

Making Burrito Bowls is So Easy

It’s taco Tuesday! And while this is NOT a taco recipe, it’s the same cuisine so keep scrolling. 😛 Last week, I made these super easy and delicious burrito bowls, they didn’t require much effort at all.

If you follow me on Instagram, you got a sneak peek on my stories. And because a promise is a promise, I am sharing the recipe below.

Burrito Bowls Toppings

Rice and Chicken

First, I made about a cup and a half of rice. While the rice was cooking, I seasoned three chicken breasts with a little bit of adobo, minced garlic, salt and pepper to taste. Once cooked, I chopped each breast, added a bit of cilantro and set aside.

Lobster Tails in under 30 Minutes!

Lobster Tails in under 30 Minutes!

Making lobster tails? That was a definite first. Really, how many people think the lobster is a fancy meal?! I’m raising my hand on this one! It’s like steak; a special occasion meal.

Quite frankly, I never thought that lobster was affordable enough for me to buy and make at home. But while shopping I noticed the promotional price on the lobster tails; and I had to buy some.

I’ll confess that I got ahead of myself and bought the tails without having a plan on how to prepare them, but making them wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be.

Cutting the lobsters tails

Cut through the top part of the tail with kitchen scissors. Then flip and crack the ribs through the bottom to open up the shell and loosen up the meat.
