New Finds At ShopTen25

I absolutely adore Abbe Fenimore and her lovely online store  ShopTen25.  I constantly find myself browsing the shop and adding to my wish list.

Back in November I featured some of my top picks (seen here) so I thought I would share a few more newbies that I'm swooning over!

Spring Trend- Yes or No??


So what do you think about the spring 2011 shoe trend...flat platform sandals??

I have to be honest...It's taking me a little bit to warm up to this trend. 
What about you?? Thumbs Up or Down to Flatforms??

Perfect Pairing

Katherine of Flower and Honey suggested a Mango Rum cocktail to accompany the For The Love of Cooking recipe featured today (seen here). 

My mouth has been watering and it's all I can think about!

How about this...I do believe it's a match made in heaven!!

Pineapple and Mango Rum Cocktail

2 1/2 small ripe mangoes, peeled and cubed (about 2 cups), plus 1/2 mango cut into slices with skin, for garnish
4 ounces best-quality golden rum
4 cups fresh pineapple juice (from a 4 1/2-pound pineapple)
Fresh tropical fruit, such as dragon fruit and star fruit, for garnish

Puree mangoes, rum, and 1/2 cup water in a blender. Pour 2 ounces puree into each of six 12-ounce glasses. Fill glasses with ice, and top off with pineapple juice. Garnish with tropical fruit.

For The Love Of Cooking...

I'm so ready for warm spring and hot summer days!  This past week NC got a taste of spring like temps but, now it seems mother nature is reminding us who is in control and spring has not arrived just yet!

Until then I will dream of warmer weather and plan tropical dishes for summer cookouts!!

Never Gets Old...

There is one bag in particular that I have ALWAYS had my eye on and dreamed of tossing on my arm...

That's right...the always chic and classic Balenciaga handbag!!

At the moment "Rose" is the color I am lusting after but, even though my bag crush doesn't change the color does.

A couple of years back my color crush was "Nuage" so my guy (the sweetheart he is) purchased me the wallet to tide me over until this beautiful bag comes home with me!!

So if you could have any handbag out there...which one would it be??
