Real Southern Living Favorite Things 2011

It is that time of year to join up to Melissa@320 sycamore blog for her favorite things PaRtY!


My husband and I just had a discussion how I really don’t have a lot of favorites…I’m non committal like that and like lots of things!

Favorite #1 – Foods


Coconut Milk has been my favorite new alternative to regular milk for my fruit smoothies that I make with one of last years favorite my Vita Mixer. My favorite Smoothie is 1 banana, fresh pineapple, ice and coconut milk! Yummy, fresh and healthy Peña Colada!

My favorite snack these days is Emerald’s Sweet & Salty dark chocolate and peanut butter nuts! I ate half a bottle when just trying to take a picture of them today! Yummy! Nuts are healthy and I consider this to be a more healthy snack that makes you feel like you ate a candy bar!

Favorite #2 – Leg Warmers and Boots


Yes, like from the 80’s! Only now you wear them under your boots! So not the best picture…hard to get a picture of yourself wearing leg warmers.  If you want a pair I have a button over  there————> $10 a pair and limited quantities available.

My boots are Furgalicious brand and I ordered them from DSW!

Last but NOT Least!

Favorite #3 – Dressing Your Truth Celebrate Your Beauty Conference

So, last year I told you about Dressing Your Truth! It has truly made such a huge impact on my life and my self esteem.  I always look fantastic and I learned what my true fashion style is to connect my inner and outer beauty together. I was able to travel to Salt Lake City and participate in Celebrate Your Beauty 1st Annual Conference. I met up with wonderful friends I had never met in person and was interviewed by the creator of DYT Carol Tuttle!

Stacey and Carol Tuttle

Truly the most empowering women’s event where everyone felt loved and accepted for who they were and we all looked fabulous too! Every women should check into this program where you help give yourself a makeover to connect your inner and outer beauty! She shows you how the fashion industry has it all wrong and teaches you the tips to be able to shop anywhere for your type, including the thrift store! I have my young girls dressing their truths! They felt so confident starting school this year…below is my 13 year old daughter!

  6. A Vita-mix is on my wish list. Does the coconut milk taste sweet? We usually buy almond milk.. I love any chocolate covered nut (macadamia, hazelnuts, peanuts, almonds, you name it).
