Colorful cowboy boots are always a hit around here and I do like to live by the phrase, “If the boot fits, buy them in every color”. If you love fringe, check out the Santa Rosa boots by Lane Boots. These boots come in four fabulous shades, feature a snip toe, studded details, side pulls and inlay designs.
Lime Green. Blue.
The next question is which color is right for you? While black and brown are always safe choices, I really like the lime green and blue. To purchase any of these boots please visit Lane Boots online.

I was walking around Anthropologie the other day feeling inspired and overwhelmed (as usual) with the beautiful clothes and home décor. Secretly their décor is my favorite section; I saw these big and pristine glass jars filled with fancy gourmet soaps. I thought, “I need that for my bathroom!” Immediately I started doing homemade soap research and decided to make my own.
There are two ways to make soap – the cold press way which is a bit lengthy and intimidating for a newbie like myself or the easy kit way. I went with the easy way and picked up a two-pound block of Goat’s Milk soap base from my local craft store, a soap mold and some essential oils.
I decided to make a poppyseed citrus soap using grape fruit essential oil, lemon zest and poppy seeds. You can make your own delightful combinations with a little experimentation.
Two-pound block of melt and pour soap base like this (it doesn’t have to be just goat’s milk). Please not that I only used one pound and am saving the other pound for later and another “flavor” of soap.
Molds for your soap – silicon are the easiest for getting soap out but tend to be a little pricier. Want to skip the molds? Try using cupcake liners in muffin pans instead.
15 – 20 drops of grape fruit essential oil
1 tablespoon, plus 1 teaspoon of poppy seeds
1 lemon, zested
A glass or plastic microwave safe bowl.
Wooden chopsticks or popsicle sticks for mixing.
Give the soap at least 3 hours to harden before popping out of the molds. I like to do 5 or 6 hours
Now you can wrap your soap with twine or brown paper, give to friends or put it in a beautiful glass jar in your bathroom.
The tiny poppyseed feels amazing on your skin and is a great way to exfoliate.
Stay tuned for another soap making adventure soon because I am saving that other pound of soap for a new kind. Happy soap making!

Vanilla ice cream never goes out of style but ever since the ice cream maker entered my life I have been creating all kinds of ice cream flavors. Imagine traditional vanilla bean ice cream with the addition of sweet and fragrant cinnamon and pieces of milk chocolate… drooling yet? This is a must try for summer and those warm days ahead.
A sweet and creamy vanilla bean cinnamon ice cream with milk chocolate pieces.
One thing I must add is if you do substitutions for heavy cream with a lower fat content your ice cream consistency will not be the same as mind. During the process of my experimentation, I have really learned that ingredients directly affect the texture of ice cream. Also please do not substitute vanilla extract for the vanilla bean, sadly it’s just not the same thing.
Feel free to garnish you ice cream with an additional pinch of cinnamon or add in cinnamon sticks for some fun.

With July over half way through, I feel like summer fashion is a ticking time bomb and soon fall clothes and boots are going to start showing up everywhere. I promise not to do that… yet. These Corral Python Cowboy Boots are full of summer spirit with their turquoise tribal details. Pair these boots with jeans, a dress, skirt of shorts if you’re feeling bold. The boots have the characteristic Corral fashion flair and are full of spirit. You may purchase these boots from Allen’s Boots.

TGIF and welcome to the weekend! Hopefully you have fun-filled or relaxing days ahead of you. Going out-of-town is always fun especially when there is cute luggage involved. I happened to stumble across the brand Sloane Ranger while doing a Google search and knew I had to share a few pieces from the horse print collection.
The duffle bag is durable, fun and weekend ready. A crossbody bag for easy carrying and travel flexibility.
