How to Make 4 Ingredient Scottish Shortbread

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #TeaProudly #CollectiveBias I grew up with a British mother.  So, when we are together we drink a lot of tea.  And we use china tea cups.  No mugs.  My mom uses tea cozies and I've had my share of them also.  We always have a "biscuit" or a cookie, or shortbread to dunk in the tea.  It's just the way things are.  There are no exceptions.  This has been my life.  Tea with mom equals a tea party.  Hover over the image below to start shopping for your tea party! Since I live in Florida, I drink it more when she comes to visit.  So, I dust off the electric …

PicturesOnGold.com Creates Your Personalized Gifts for the Holidays

This is a Sponsored Post.  However, all opinions are my own. I love personalized jewelry.  I am a very sentimental person and jewelry always has a story behind it.    So, I had the opportunity to receive and review a very personal piece of jewelry, a locket, from PicturesOnGold.com. The website it easy to navigate and I started to build my piece of jewelry HERE.  There are 3 sizes to choose from and I chose the smallest, the 2/3 in sterling silver.  You can also choose a birthstone to place on the bail.  I chose April. As your designing your locket, you can choose from clip art, text or monogram  for the front side of it. On the inside I wrote my sons' names, Henri & Oliver and …

Henry's Seasonal Fall/Winter Menu Launches

Henry's Seasonal Fall/Winter Menu Launches

This is a Sponsored Post.  However, all opinions are my own. I had the opportunity make another visit to Henry’s in Delray Beach a few days back and I had a blast. This time I had my husband with me and I was looking forward to sharing the experience with him.   We started with cocktails, well I don’t drink so, he started with cocktails… he tried the Spicy Peach Margarita and the Blood Orange Cosmo. He liked both, but his favorite was the Spicy Peach Margarita. It is a very unique cocktail, not what you would expect from a family restaurant in an upscale neighborhood. It was a great start to a great meal! For the fall/winter menu Chef Dan Moore created 18 new menu items which complement …

My Son Drew a Picture of our Family and Left His Brother Out

My Son Drew a Picture of our Family and Left His Brother Out

My son loves to draw.  He's so creative and is always drawing me pictures.  It's so refreshing to have children that love to color and create.  So, of course I encourage it.  Many times, they color and paint separately.  Which I also encourage. We all need our space. They spend a lot of time together and when they are apart they are always asking for each other.  They are soulmates.  They are bros.  They truly love each other. So, when my son told me he was going to draw me a beautiful picture of our family with a rainbow, as usual, I was excited to see what he would come up with.  I was just like him when I was younger and loved to draw and paint.  …

How Junior's Made Me Fall in Love with Cheesecake

How Junior's Made Me Fall in Love with Cheesecake

This is a Sponsored Post for Juniors.  However, all opinions are my own. Juniors just celebrated 67 years in business. Founded by Harry Rosen in 1950, Junior's landmark restaurant, located in Brooklyn, is known as the home of New York's best cheesecake. It was a pleasure meeting Kevin Rosen, the third generation owner running the business with his brother. As soon as we sat down, we were served pickles, which is nice because it keeps your mouth and your hands busy while not filling you up. I started with the Pastrami smoked salmon, which is exclusive to the Boca Raton menu. At first, I thought it was a combination of Pastrami and smoked salmon (that would have been weird), but it is smoked salmon with Pastrami spices (no meat). Kevin Rosen, the owner, highly recommended it and I'm so glad …

Fit Foodz Cafe Boca Raton

This is a Sponsored Post for Fit Foodz Cafe.  However; all opinions are my own. I try to live a healthy lifestyle.  I exercise and try to eat as clean as possible.  I also try to demonstrate healthy eating habits to my kids and I can say that they are pretty health conscious now.  Neither one of them eat red meat, which was not my choice, but theirs. When I was pregnant with my first son six years ago I had a food aversion to red meat and have not been able to eat it since.  I am not vegan or vegetarian.  I just listened to my body.  I love healthy options. I always feel better eating gluten free, however, I do not have any food …

5 Organic Hacks for Cold and Flu Season

This is a sponsored post for Genexa, however; all opinions are my own. It's that time of year again; the flu and cold season is here, and I am having a flashback of last December.  I was out of state for the holidays and got the flu and bronchitis.  Oh, I was miserable.  Then my father got it, and we were all sick.  I went to the doctor and they gave me antibiotics and a whole list of medications, some which made me feel worse.  It was bad. As I laid on the couch, I remember thinking, "I will never feel like this again..."  Since then, I have looked for gentler, more natural and organic medicines to help alleviate symptoms for myself and my family before …

I Brush My Kids' Hair With a Fork

I Brush My Kids' Hair With a Fork

I brushed my kids' hair with a fork.  Yup, you heard right.  I keep forks in my car.  Along with headbands, LEGOS, pens, plastic bags, napkins, coupons, tampons, lip gloss, paper clips, scissors, etc.  I live in my car. But I now keep a hairbrush in the car.  Mornings get crazy with getting the kids dressed, fed and out the door.  I can't deal with the fight over brushing their hair, so we do it in the car. There are days when things go really smoothly.  But most of the time, there is something. The other day I started having hot flashes and I suddenly realized that it's about time I hit menopause.  Somebody posted a 20-year reunion picture of us ten years ago. Why was I …

Step Forward and Try Something New

This is a Sponsored Post for Famous Footwear and The Shelf.  However, all opinions are my own. The seasons have changed, the Holidays are coming, and I sense a shift with everything around me.  I love this time of year.  It's the beginning of a new school year for my kids, and I usually do a lot of self-reflecting after a hectic summer.  It's time to change up my routine! During the summer, we go on a lot of road trips.  The kids love the theme parks like Legoland and I get my exercise running around with them. But the best thing about staying at the hotel is that I also get to lounge around a little while they play!  It's a win win situation! Because it so busy …

Why We Stayed at LEGOLAND® Water Park for the Whole Day

Why We Stayed at LEGOLAND® Water Park for the Whole Day

  This is a Sponsored Post for LEGOLAND® Parks.  However; all opinions are my own. We recently went back to Legoland for my son's 6th Birthday.  We stayed at the Legoland Hotel which is always so much fun.  This time he brought his best friend, Aaron.  It was his first road trip with a friend.  Usually, we go as a family with his brother, so this was extra special.  He felt really grown up. Right away they went straight to the treasure hunt in the room where they found the first of many future LEGO sets to build. The boys had so much fun in the room getting rowdy in the bunk bed!  We didn't get much sleep, between the giggling and excitement for the next day. Then we hit …
