Valentine's Day | Pink Party Popcorn Mix






 I absolutely love popcorn, especially when it's mixed with other goodies.  This adorable popcorn mix is not only perfect for a Valentine's day treat, but great for girly functions such as baby showers, bachelorette parties, and birthdays.  I found some recipes on Pinterest and did my own variation based on ingredients I had.  I also thought it might be cute to package in little treat bags and hand out as Valentines. You can also switch up the colors for other themes.  To go over-the-top pink, I enjoyed with some old-fashioned strawberry milk.

What You'll Need:
  • A package of your favorite popcorn (or you can pop your own).  I love Boom Chicka Pop.
  • 5-6 drops red food coloring (or color of choice)
  • 1/2 cup water 
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup Candy- I used Pink candy corn and M + Ms
Directions:
Heat oven to 200 degrees.  Boil the sugar, butter, water and food coloring for about 4 minutes.  Let cool for 5-10 minutes. Pour popcorn onto a cookie sheet and then evenly pour the sugar mix over the popcorn and toss.   Let the popcorn bake for 7-10 minutes.  After popcorn cools, mix in the candy and serve. 


Ever After,

Winter Weekends






   The last few weekend have been full of errand-running, kid's birthday parties, and relaxing.  I'm not complaining about the low key weekends for now because I know this will be short-lived.  I have been taking full advanatge of dressing downin comfy sweaters, sneakers, and denim.
     I am in love with sweaters that have detailed backs such as the one pictured above, and one of my all-time faves from last year from Free People.  There is something about a fun cut-out or lace on the back that is just the right amount of sexy yet not too revealing.

Wearing Many Hats

One of my fashion goals for 2017 is to wear more hats.  When I look at other fashion blogs or notice an awesome hat, I always get a tad bit jealous that someone is pulling off an amazing hat to put together an outfit.  I find myself a little serf-conscious with some hats yet I love them on other people. I finally feel comfortable with a winter beanie but would like to expand my hat selection and try a cool panama hat this summer or a bold floppy hat.

Here are some hats I'm totally crushing on.  Where are you with your hat game?

1.  Rag + Bone Fedora
2. H+M Coachella Hat
3. Pink Metallic Baseball cap
4. Coal Frena Beanie

5. Forever 21 Ribbon Trim Hat
6. White Woven Panama Hat
