If you’re anything like me, you LOVE lists. Lists always help me stay on task and get work done! Because I am able to see what I have to do visually, it allows my brain to process it and keep all my tasks in order. Staying organized is essential durning these summer months. I tend to want to slack off a bit during summertime, and we all know life doesn’t slow down just because the school year is out! Make this quick DIY To-Do list to keep your responsibilities in check!

Supplies:

  1. Cork board
  2. Craft paper
  3. Scissors, sharpie, push pins
  4. Mod Podge

Begin by cutting the craft paper into an oval shape. Then, trace the oval craft paper onto the cork board. Cut the cork board oval out.

You should be left with this.

Glue the craft paper onto the cork board using mod podge.

Allow that to dry and simply label the board with “to do” at the top!

Nothin’ better than your classic chocolate covered strawberries! I mean, truly… what beats it? We customized this dessert in honor of Father’s Day! These cute tuxedo strawberries are bound to put a smile on Dad’s face! Am I right?

Here’s what you’ll need:

  1. Milk Chocolate (meltable)
  2. White Chocolate (meltable)
  3. Strawberries
  4. Toothpicks
  5. A bit of coconut oil if you need help smoothing out the melted chocolate
  6. Parchment Paper

Begin by melting the white chocolate. Follow the instructions on the bag to melt correctly.

Once all the strawberries have been dipped in the white chocolate, let stand and go ahead and melt the milk chocolate.

Make sure the white chocolate has totally dried. Then, dip half the strawberry in the milk chocolate. Immediately dip the other half creating the look of a tuxedo.

Take a toothpick to create the “buttons.”

Let chill in the fridge for about an hour. Best if eaten the day of.

What’s in my beach bag?

May 23, 2017 — by Chelsey Bishoff

IMG_0215-960x640.jpg

If you are anything like me, you are a total beach bum. I get out in the sun to play in the waves as many chances as I can get! I mean, who wouldn’t in a little beach town? It’s only my most favorite thing to do–duh! Being prepared to spend the day near the shore is important though. And has a mermaid myself, (wink wink) I thought I would show you what I bring along with me! Let’s get started.

First off, having a happy tummy is always important! I make sure to bring along my all time favorite snack. I like to fuel up with smoothie bowls. They are a fresh, light snack perfect for a hot summers day. Now, I walk to the beach so it’s easy for me to grab and go. However, feel free to pour a smoothie in a to-go thermos and bring it along!

Besides bringing along my favorite wrist stack, here are the essentials to a successful beach day!

-My Shibori round towel (Shop it on the website)

-I keep all my little items such as: my favorite pair of sun glasses, tanning lotion to keep my skin hydrated, chap stick and beach accessories in my Ocean Child Clutch! (Coming to the website SOON!)

I always infuse my water with a few frozen berries! This is a must on a hot beach day.

Who else is exited for all the new summer clutches? How cute is my Ocean Child Clutch??
