Have you heard of The F Factor?  I was recently introduced to it and it founder Tanya Zuckerbrot.  It is a way of life that incorporates more fiber and protein, and less carbs into your diet while still enjoying your lifestyle.  Here is one of my favorite F Factor recipes.   Their healthy Caesar.  Its so easy to make and full of fiber to keep you fuller longer.  You will never miss the carbs.

Monogram Jewelry Gifts

I love monogram jewelry but it is so hard to find a good source to order gifts.  You want the monogram to look good and the quality to match.  I recently ordered from Get Name Necklace and was pleasantly surprised.  The jewelry (necklace in my case) was really pretty and the price was definitely right.  I decided to search through the site and find some other gifts that I need.  I also found some great items for father's day and have featured some of my favorite items below...

Hands Down the Best Grad Gift For Girls

A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon a stylish company Caryn Lawn based in Dallas Texas.  They launched in April of 2019 and since are in 75 stores around the country.  Their Supernova collection is made of glass flat beads with 24k gold accents.  Women are wearing them stacked with other high fashion bracelets or in multiples as shown below.  My daughter has a stack that she LOVES and has been wearing everyday and everyone is stopping her asking where they came from.  The Supernova bracelets are def one of my top picks for Grad Gifts for her and while you are at it grab one or two for yourself.  Click HERE to see the entire collection..

The Great Outdoors

I cannot believe that Memorial Day Weekend is here..Time to spruce up your outdoor space to get ready for all that summer entertaining!!!  I have been to Home Depot 4 times already looking for plants for my patio pot..I think I am almost there..now onto the rest of the decor.  Here are some photos for inspiration.  I am def going to add an indoor outdoor rug and umbrella this year.  I love all of these pops of color against the neutral sofas. 



I love the black and white against all the natural greens!!
