Beach Checklist

Ever need a beach checklist?  I usually leave for the beach early in the morning and have often forgotten some of the most basic things just because I was in a rush.  (One time I forgot my bikini! That was a sad, sad day!)  Since then, I’ve smartened up and keep a beach checklist on the fridge during the Summer months.  No longer will I sit on the hot sand while everyone else plays in the cool waves of the water.

Peach Margarita Recipe


1/2 cup peach puree
1 lime
1.5 ounces tequila (1800 Silver)
1/5 ounces triple sec
1 tablespoon simple syrup (or more to taste)
sea salt and a peach slice to garnish

First skin and puree two (white) peaches. This should yield enough peach puree. Combine the puree, lime juice, tequila, triple sec and simple syrup. Stir to combine. Rim your glass by placing the rim in a shallow amount of water and then dipping it into coarse sea salt. Add ice and pour the mixed drink over ice. Garnish with a peach slice.

Turquoise for the Home

I love using turquoise to decorate my home with!  It’s by far one of my favorite colors and while it’s bright, it’s also relaxing.  I’ve noticed a lot of people who use turquoise in their home also tend to use a lot of white to balance it out.  At the same time, I think the white helps bring out the turquoise in the room.  Take a look at some inspiration for using turquoise in your home:

DIY – Shell Candles

I love this DIY I spotted on Completely Coastal!  The idea behind it is pretty simple, pick up some wax and wicks at the craft shop.  Place wick into shell and pour in heated wax.  I absolutely love the outcome.  How beautiful would it be to use this as a center piece for a Summer dinner party?!

Feather Ring

Some amazing things have been happening in the jewelry shop and I’m excited to share!  Most of you know that I needed your support in order to get my Open Sky shop opened.  (Thank you to everyone who helped)  Since it’s been open, Bethenny Frankel has loved my feather ring on Open Sky.  What does that mean? It’s really no different than sharing something with your friends on Facebook, and Bethenny Frankel has A LOT of friends!  I will be forever grateful to the Skinny Girl for giving my business a boost.  I’ve been working hard at getting all the orders out and happy that everyone seems to love my feather ring so much.


But wait!  That’s not all.  Shortly after Bethenny Frankel loved my feather ring, Molly Sims mentions the feather ring on her profile.  Here’s what she had to say, “Never met a feather I didn’t love”.  Gotta love Mrs. Molly for her kind words!
