Happy Long Weekend

The first long weekend of the Summer season is upon us!

Here in Cali - it really feels like Summer - we've even hit triple digit temperatures over this last week!!
So the grill at our house will definitely be getting fired up this weekend.

I came across these delicious looking burgers online,
 and knew instantly what was going to be on our weekend menu.

A little heat, some fresh avocado and a lovely veggie salad to finish it off.

Is it dinner time already?

Happy Long Weekend!!!

Are you grilling this Memorial Day?

Favorite Things

I like to see what my favorite bloggers are enjoying.
It's led me to some wonderful new products 
that I may not have tried or heard about, without reading about them on their blogs.

So I thought I'd share with you a few of my favorite things that I've been enjoying lately.

I LOVE this face wash!! I'm into my second bottle now and my skin couldn't be happier.
I also love that it's all natural and doesn't have any "junk" in it!
Wonderful line of products!

2. Cool Lime Refresher via Starbucks

With temperatures in the 90's and even into the triple digits last week, 
this has been a lifesaver in the afternoons.  
Cool, tart, just slightly sweet and oh so refreshing!

3. "Fear or Desire" via Essie

This is what's on my toes right now - thanks to a Mother's Day pedicure from my son!
So happy and bright - I love it!

4. Vintage Phillips Radio Poster via ebay

This poster is on it's way to me!!
I'm so excited.
It's just the right color and feel I was looking for.
A small painting project in my kitchen led to a blank wall calling out for a piece of art.
I can't wait!

Do you have any favorites right now that you just can't get enough of?

Focus On Life - Week 18 - Abstract


Here is the definition from

"Of or pertaining to the formal aspect of artemphasizing lines, colors, generalized orgeometrical forms, etc., especially with reference to their relationship to one another."

This was an interesting challenge.
I chose to not make my photo so abstract as to completely lose the original, but enough that there were some abstract qualities to it.

This is a mirror I have hanging in my dining room.
I shot this using my cell phone with the
which is a fun and totally addictive app, with tons of effects that you can apply to your photos.

I like the way the angle of the shot almost made ripple effects in the mirror and the wall texture adds an interesting component.

Want to see more...
Hop on over to 
and see what others have shot for their abstract challenge.

Have a great weekend!
