Fave Five: Cotton Candy Treats

It’s Friday, which means it’s time for another fave five! Lately I’ve been noticing cotton candy everywhere. And not just in it’s traditional form. Bloggers are taking the summer treat to a whole new amazing level. There’s cotton candy spiked with alcohol, affogatos, donut sandwiches, ice cream and cocktails! I definitely need to get on board the sugar train and come up with some creative new use for the pastel treat, and quick. It's the last few days of our road trip and I can’t wait to share all the pictures with you soon. Happy weekend! Stay tuned!

Fave Five: Vintage Campers

We’re off! As we speak, Nick and I are driving up North with a car full of stuff, excited and likely sleep deprived. Tonight we’ll rest our heads in the small town of Dunsmuir. In an old train car! I can’t wait to explore this cute train town, and it's preserved 1920’s style. Today’s our longest driving day, at least 10 hours. It’s sure to be a doozy, but we just can’t wait for our wheels to hit that Oregon trail! Stay tuned, I’ve got a week of great stuff lined up for you while I’m off on this adventure. Have a great weekend and keep the recommendations coming!

Fave Five: Fruity DIYs

It’s another fruity fave five Friday! Probably the last one for a while seeing as summer is winding down. Though I won’t swear to it. I can’t predict the fruiture! A few of these DIYs you can make and take with you into Fall like the Pineapple organizing bowls and fruity pen cases. Others should be enjoyed this weekend while the weather's still warm. You can expect to find me poolside tomorrow, watermelon umbrella clad cocktail in hand. Who’s with me?

Fave Five: Creamsicles

Happy National Creamsicle Day! To help you celebrate, I’ve rounded up my fave five creamy popsicle recipes. And don’t forget to add yesterday's cantaloupe and cream pops to the mix! I’m a sucker for creamsicles. They feel much more like dessert to me than an all-fruit popsicle. So this Friday treat yourself to something sweet and creamy! Happy weekend!

Fave Five: Grown Up Slushies

I was all about the slushie growing up. Not to be confused with smoothies, slushies are icy, light and delicious. I probably haven’t had one in 10 years. But recently I’ve noticed a wonderful revival of the tasty treat. And today’s frozen faves are for adults only! Trivia question. What’s better than a frozen lemonade on a hot summer’s day? One with vodka in it! I’m going to need all the cool drinks I can get this weekend. Tomorrow Nick and I are headed to NorCal for our annual week long river rafting adventure! And it’s going to be upwards of 100 degrees. Yikers! Wish me luck. Have a great weekend!
