A Beautiful Place {Thoughts}

Some people look for beautiful places. They look for a beautiful condo on the beach or a beautiful place to visit. But some people have the ability to make a place beautiful! You're smile, and your actions can turn a ugly and sad place into a place of joy and gladness! Just think about it! You have more influence on the world than you think you do!

We've all had the horrific moment when an eyeshadow (it always seems to be my favorite eyeshadow) or another product cracks and gets all over your makeup bag. If yours is still mostly together, give this a try! You might just be able to save it!

Beautiful Living Spaces {Interior Design}

One of my favorite things to look at is interior design. Although I don't have my own house right now, I love to get ideas for my future home! What do you think about these spaces? 
I love the Antique feel of this room. The light pink and cream go together very well! I'm loving the chandelier too! 

Beautiful idea for an enclosed porch! 

This porch has a southern feel to it. It looks like a great place to relax! :)

This old chest would look great in a guest bedroom, the color is beautiful!

I love big kitchens. This one looks beautiful!

Vintage {Fall 2012 Style Watch}

There's a new trend that's been occurring over the past several years. Vintage. I can remember the pearl fad of 2006 that got me searching for that certain look. Ever since then, I have been in love with vintage fashion. The styles of today can, sometimes, be so confusing and dramatic. But the vintage style is so simple, but so adorable! I'll be bringing back the vintage fad this fall with my pearls and winged eyeliner. How will you be bringing back the vintage?   
With Love,

Fall 2012 Trend: Scarves

Scarves are always a way to add a little more to your outfit. This fall, a scarf is going to be one of my main pieces for outfits. Check out a few of these scarfed outfits for inspiration for your fall fashion planning!

I love this outfit. So simple, but so cute! 

Add scarves to your outfits for the end of summer and fall for a great look! I like to go simple and wear jeans and a solid long sleeved T-shirt and put a scarf on with it. Or, add a scarf to pull all the colors of your outfit together. Have fun scarving! :) 

With Love,

Step 3: Take a small section of hair from the ponytail to use for the braid.

Step 4: With the remaining hair, make a bun and secure it with a few bobby pins. 

Step 5: Braid the small section of hair that you separated earlier and wrap it around the bottom of the bun. 

Step 6: Secure the braid in the back of the bun with a bobby pin. 

Step 7: Give your bun a light spritz of your favorite hairspray.

Baked Creamy Chicken Taquitos!

Check out this yummy recipe for baked creamy chicken taquitoes from!

1/3 cup (3 oz) cream cheese
1/4 cup green salsa
1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
3 Tablespoons chopped cilantro
2 Tablespoons sliced green onions
2 cups shredded cooked chicken
1 cup grated pepperjack cheese
about 12 small corn or flour tortillas (we liked flour better)
kosher salt
cooking spray

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly coat with cooking spray.

Heat cream cheese in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds so it's soft and easy to stir. Add green salsa, lime juice, cumin, chili powder, onion powder and garlic powder and mix well. Add cilantro, green onions, chicken and pepperjack cheese and combine well.

You can prepare up to this step ahead of time. Just keep the mixture in the fridge.

The corn tortillas are harder to roll without cracking. For the corn tortillas: work with a few tortillas at a time and heat in the microwave until they are soft enough to roll without cracking. It helps to place them between damp paper towels. Usually 20-30 seconds will do it. If you find yours are cracking when you roll them or come unrolled right away, just try heating them longer and try the paper towel thing.

Place 3 Tablespoons of chicken mixture on the lower third of a tortilla, keeping it about 1/2 inch from the edges.
Then roll it up as tight as you can.
Place seam side down on the baking sheet. Lay all of the taquitos on the baking sheet and make sure they are not touching each other. Spray the tops lightly with cooking spray or an oil mister and sprinkle some kosher salt on top.

Place pan in oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until crisp and the ends start to get golden brown. Makes around 12 taquitos.

Dip in salsa, sour cream, guacamole, or Tomatillo Dressing. They would be great with black beans and this Cilantro Lime Rice.
