Savory Wednesday morning and a linking party

For-Your-Friendship


Hi Everyone,
I’m sure it’s no surprise to anyone, when you decide to watch your caloric intake it’s much harder to adhere to a strict diet.
I’ve found starting with a savory breakfast, and a great cup of espresso, boil egg, strawberry Greek yogurt all under 350 calories, 7 gram of fat, 11 gram of sugar :)
Tune in Friday as we shared the savory muffin recipe and espresso.
Have you found any tips and tricks on reducing caloric intakes, please share them with us :)

Hi everyone, I’m Maggie sharing with you a simple way to decorate a masculine gift box. I was at big lot and found this Ralph Lauren wallet for a mere $6.00. I immediately thought of a way to redecorate it using the few items I have unpacked since I’ve  moved.

 

 

 

 

Supplies:

  1. Wallet box, sheet music
  2. Smooch spray, Martha Stewart punches and glue
  3. Rhinestones, chipboard stickers, stickles
  4. Bazill Cardstock green and beige, colorbok chalk

Let’s begin!

  1. Tear a sheet of music towards to fit the box to have an uneven edge.
  2. Spray mist the sheet let dry.

3.   Adhere the sprayed sheet music onto the box, by spreading the liquid glue evenly to avoid warping.

4.  Punch a border to 1 inch wide and a circle,  ink the edges

5.   Adhere the circle to the border, add the chipboard letters to the center of the circle, adhere to the box

6.  Punch 3 doves ink the edges, add stickles let dry, adhere to the box be careful to let some of the words pertaining to the theme show.

7.  Adhere rhinestones to the side of the border for an elegant touch

TIP

I buy all the Christmas rhinestones  @ 75% off with the idea of breaking them into different shapes.

Voila very easy ! here’s another look.

All star weekend NBA event with a linking party


SONY DSC


Hi Everyone,
This is shaping to be a very busy week with having our first NBA all star here in Orlando. It is estimated All star weekend will net over 75 millions. I’m not sure how they get this number while we are in the middle of an economic crisis, but most of the venues are already sold out. Obama is going to be in town for a fund raiser I found out a table  for 6 cost $30.000.
Are you an NBA fan? We are hoping to be able to keep Dwight Howard here with the Magic if not to keep him here in Florida with the Miami Heat. 
What sport do you follow if any?
Today I’m going to share with you a simple wallet I purchased at big lot for $6.00, used my stash to give it more humph, no need to worry about breaking the bank on this one.

Dark chocolate Valentine 2012!

It-Is-Well

Happy Valentine day everyone,
Did you know that researchers have found eating 75% or higher dark chocolate is an amazing antioxidant?
It clears up molecules that can cause heart diseases, among other things.
So I say let them eat all the chocolate! after it’s valentine week not day :) Ps make sure it’s not milk chocolate.
