Something Tasty {Chobani Mezè Dips}

Football season is here! Y'all. I love me some football. Our family is a Carolina Panther family!

 You can't watch football without snacks. Obviously. Our go to snack is the classic all American chicken wings. We love to get adventurous with the sauces too. One of our favorite local pubs has these amazing Asian Garlic Wings that are SO GOOD. Like insanely good.  

When we watch the game at the house we love to fix nachos, chips and dip, or just grab a pizza. We love a good dip so when we found out about Chobani's new Mezè Dips we were ready to add it to our list of appetizers. 

These are savory yogurt based dips that add a little bit of Greek flare to your spread. If you wanted to keep the carbs down (which we love to do) use veggies as the carrier pigeons to get this tasty dip in YO MOUTH!

Here's one of my favorite lil' dippers - SUGAR SNAP PEAS!

Chobani has come up with a TON more veggies for inspiration too!

They come in four different flavors:

 Roasted Red Pepper
Three Pepper Salsa
Chili Lime
Smoked Onion and Parmesan

Give it a little stir after you remove the lid and you're ready to chow!

Only 25 calories for 2 tablespoons
1 g of fat
2 g of carbs

I love it. Very creamy, very delicious. The greek yogurt taste comes through. I would love to try the Chili Lime on fish tacos!!!!!

Easing into Fall with...Versona

I am teaming up with Versona to highlight their Fall Look Book and to show you what I selected from my local Versona store to ease into the fall season!

After searching the store and having to make some really hard decisions, I finally when with this very soft and super cute striped tunic top.

Versona also sent me those beautifully earrings that I plan on styling up soon! I have a fun little idea for how to showcase them so I'll be back with that post!

Stripes or tunics may not be your thing so I snapped a couple of quick photos of items that caught my eye while I was browsing at my local Versona store.

This little number caught my eye because I love the color and the texture. It is a soft velvet and reminds me of something Courtney Love would've rocked in the 90s with a flannel shirt.

Now, this is THAT fall skirt that you can pair with tons of sweaters for the fall. I mean, come on. It screams FALL. It has a cute little 60s vibe too.

I'm always looking for items with a little bit of an edge to them. I really like these skinny jeans with the cool zipper detail. And that cropped sweater right next to it is perfect. Walk in, grab these two things, and walk out with a sweet little outfit. Just don't forget to pay for them :)

I think this is a pretty sexy outfit. Would look great for a business casual office party. I'm a sucker for a high waisted pant since I'm a shorty. Pair these with a platform high heel and your legs will look a mile long!

Jewels, laces, and more textures.

Bodysuits! I was so glad to see some affordable body suits in the store. I love these things and I wish they would have never went away. I had at least 3 of them back in high school. I loved never having to fight over getting a shirt to stay tucked into a skirt or pants.

OK! A few more snaps of the top that I went home with!

It has a hood and cute camel colored elbow pads. You know me - I love a great basic and I love attention to detail. The hood and the patches had me sold! I can dress it up or I can keep it casual.

Burgundy or maroon - whatever you want to call it - is still a hot color for fall. I added a pop of color with my earrings and lipstick. But I am feeling the urge to add some burgundy pieces in to my fall wardrobe!

Geometric Dress Girl


These photos are a wee bit old. From May to be exact! I've really been consciously uncoupling from the blog for a while. Just enjoying summer and life. Not documenting very many outfits. Most days I am wearing things that are NOT blog worthy anyway and then, on the other hand, sometimes I am dressing up but not feeling the photo taking chore. 

These photos were taken with my iphone on a date night with my hubby. That's the only reason these photos exist because the phone is easy to grab and snap pics!

Stop and smell the roses...

A tasty little charcuterie board at the Battery Park Book Exchange

Such a enrapturing place...

The hubs

Didn't know dogs were allowed...I doubt our dog would sit still for three seconds for me to be able to bring the coffee cup to my lips...

DIY {Curb Appeal - Mailbox Makeover}

Just wanted to share with you guys our curb side mailbox makeover!

Our mailbox was old and dilapidated and honestly, barely hanging on. The little red arm was long gone and the door barely closed. Pitiful! We think that someone might have backed into at some point. Either UPS or a neighbor. Anyway. We knew we needed a new box but we decided to give the whole area a facelift.


We painted the post a earth-toned, warm, beige color. We bought a larger and more sturdier mailbox, a wine barrel and three plants. The three plants were actually three plants within itself. We cut the bottom out of the wine barrel and slipped it over the post. We did have to cut off the very tippy top of the post to squeak the barrel over it. But it was a great opportunity to add a solar light to the top! It ended up being a great thing that we didn't even consider in the beginning. I love seeing the light when I pull up at dusk.

Now, don't judge the weeds on the ground next to it. I literally just pulled these a few days ago and they are back. We have had SO much rain. Our future plans could be to build out a a rock wall with some weed prevention.

We added our street number to the post as well. That's why there is a little heart in the photo below :)

These little flowers are just exploding!

These flowers are annuals so they will die back, which will be heartbreaking because they are THRIVING!
