Fashion Friday – Navy and Gold for work

I’ve recently gotten hooked on Polyvore, thanks to the fabulous Emily from Colorado Moms, and I’ve been wanting to start doing a little more fashion-y stuff for a while now, so I’m going to try (note: TRY) to do a “Fashion Friday) series here on the blog.
My first attempt at Polyvore-ing is this navy and gold outfit. It’s one of my favorite color combos for this time of year, so it seemed a great place to start!

Simple Strawberry Sauce featuring @FarmboxSF and @Tillamook #IceCreamCraving

disclosureTillamook ice cream and farmboxsf berriesTillamook ice cream is one of our favorites (Well really Tillamook anything, but especially ice cream! Did you know they’ve been making it since 1947? I feel like I’ve missed out since I just discovered it a couple of years ago!) so when their delicious ice cream is paired with fresh, organic berries from FarmboxSF, it’s sure to be a winner.

I received both strawberries and blackberries from FarmboxSF, but I have to be honest. They didn’t all make it from (from my office, where I had them delivered) Fresh northern California blackberries are the taste of my childhood, so once I started eating them (I had to quality check them, you know) there was just no stopping me.

I love how easy FarmboxSF makes it to get local, organic produce brought right to my door… it showed up well-packaged and fresh and was just waiting to decorate the amazing ice cream we got from Tillamook.

I chose to make the strawberries into a simple sauce topping for our ice cream; I love how it dripped and filled every nook and cranny of my scoops, making the perfect end-of-summer berry filled treat! fresh strawberry sauce farmboxsf Fresh & Simple Strawberry Sauce

  • 2 pints strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1/2 c. sugar (or more to taste)
  • Juice from ½ a lemon
  • Glug of triple sec (that’s a scientific measurement, BTW)

Place strawberries into saucepan, turn heat to medium.
Sprinkle with ½ C. sugar, stir
Cook down until liquid
Add lemon juice and triple sec
Taste, add sugar as desired

Let cool and use to top anything that would be improved by some strawberry deliciousness. (So, ANYTHING)

Store in airtight container, will keep in fridge for a couple of weeks (Not that it will last that long!)

Old Things I Love #1 – Kodak Brownie Holiday camera

My friend Brandi challenged me to do a series of 5 videos this week, so I decided to finally jump into this series that I’ve been thinking about starting. (Seriously; I’ve had this idea rolling around in my head for years!)
I’ll be posting a new video every day this week, and then while I’ll keep doing these “Old Things I Love” videos, I can’t do them daily.
So here’s “Old Things I Love #1: Kodak Brownie Holiday Camera”
