Fruity ice cubes and a GIVEAWAY!
Hello Friends! How are you all this week? We are in the middle of a heat wave here in MA! It's hot and humid, temperatures in the high 90's! Air conditioning is a blessing~
Saturday we spent the entire day at the beach and I had the best hot dog that I've ever had in my life! Why do hot dogs always taste so good at the beach? I don't know if it was the salt air or the grilled bun (in butter!) but BOY was it good! Truth be told that I ate it so fast that I didn't even have time to think about taking a picture of it. You will just have to take my word for it.
Anyway, I have two things that I'm excited to show you today. First, something special for your summer drinks, and then a Giveaway! Yahoo!
Here's a cute idea. I saw this in a magazine and I had to try it...
Want a way to fancy-up your summer drinks? How about fruity ice cubes?!
The ones I saw were made with blackberries, but this is what I had in the fridge : )
You could use any fruit to do this - strawberries, oranges, or raspberries?!
Just add your favorite fruit in the ice cube tray and viola!
I'm on a blueberry kick right now so I immediately went for the blueberries! When the ice cube eventually melts, you get a treat!
I drink lemon water all summer, so why not in ice cube form? Looking at this pictures I'm thinking I should do some lime ones too? A lemon-lime water would be very refreshing! Yes, definitely!
These ice cubes are so pretty and elegant. They even make my ice tea look fancy~
I hope you enjoy these!
And now let me tell you about my Giveaway -
A few weeks ago this blog celebrated it's 100th post! I thought that was a great reason for another giveaway! July is also my birthday month and I love having something to look forward to.
Here's what I have for you:
A 12.8oz container of the most beautifully scented rose potpourri. Perfect for a bedroom or bathroom.
It's feminine, soft, and lovely.
I also have this vintage style LOVE tin. Adorable.
Both items came from Michael's and are from the Ashland Collection. I have many of their Paris/shabby chic inspired pieces. Check out my tea bag tin (here) and my Paris luminary (here). Two of my favorite things from Ashland.
To enter just leave me a comment on this post and I'll draw a winner next Tuesday - the 24th - which happens to be my birthday! I'm super excited to be able to celebrate it with you ; - )
Good luck & stay cool!!!
