Nothing is quite like comfort food like hearty potatoes. These twice-baked potatoes are warm and rich with a southern feel. This Pioneer Woman recipe, is delicious and perfect for the last days of cold weather.
BB Cream's are the latest skincare fad. Popular in Asia, BB Creams provide a variety of benefits to your skin including moisture, SPF 15 to protect your skin from the sun, and give your skin flawless, radiant skin. For an affordable and accessible option, I chose the Garnier Fructis BB Cream. At around $15 at the local drugstore, this will last for a really long time as well, so you get a good bang for your buck.
I bought the shade Light/Medium, and it still applies slightly too dark for my skin, but paired with the right shade of powder it looks natural and beautiful. I recommend this for summer to keep your skin looking glowing and gorgeous, I know it does this for my skin!
This evening I was lucky enough to attend an event hosted at a local ApricotLane Boutique hosted by Whitney Port.
Now if you haven't heard of Ms. Port, you can't say you were an MTV watcher a few years ago. Whitney started off with Lauren Conrad as a Teen Vogue intern in the first episode of The Hills (a show I still watch reruns of). Whitney became a recurring character, but soon left the sunny streets of LA where she worked for cutthroat Kelly Cutrone at People's Revolution, for a new job at Diane von Furstenberg's headquarters in New York City. She has since written her own book, and developed two clothing lines. whitney eve, and her latest WE by whitney eve; a less expensive line carried exclusively at ApricotLane boutiques.
(l-r) my sister, Whitney Port, and me
Whitney was so sweet and looked amazing in her outfit (she even had neon green toes under her sparkly kitten heels). Everything from her line is to die for, from lavender shorts to a flowy apricot tank. The party guest filled the door to take photos with the glowing Ms. Port who also helped girls style her pieces with other items from the boutique. All in all it was a great experience, and I loved meeting one of my style inspirations!

A recent trip to visit family introduced me to Ree Drummond aka The Pioneer Woman. Ree's recipes are delicious homestyle meals that will be a hit at any party. You can watch The Pioneer Woman every Saturday morning at 10am EST on The Food Network. While contemplating what dessert to make for Easter, I decided upon Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie, a rich and delicious pie that takes about 20 minutes to make.
