Target makes me happy. The equestrian home decor collection from Target makes me even happier!
Target always seems to be creating new and exciting collections. This equestrian home decor collection from Target has been out for a while and some of the pieces are now on sale. You find leather accessories, plenty of horse head statues and vintage looking pieces to compliment the collection.
The only disappointing part about the collection is it’s not sold in stores. While I love online shopping sometimes it”s nice to see the quality of an item beforehand.
Shop my favorites below:
You can check out the remaining pieces in the collection online at Target, I just highlighted a few favorites. Happy shopping!
Blue Stallion Farm is filled with bright bohemian style.
Back in January I featured the beautiful Blue Stallion Farm in a stable style feature. I’m back today with more beautiful photos captured by Rikki Snyder and originally shared on Houzz. I spend a decent amount of time on Houzz and was thrilled to come across these photos. I encourage you to read the original feature and scroll down to see more enticing photography.
Blue Stallion Farm is located on ten acres in Hollywood, Florida and is ran by Jimmie and Gany Bernal. They breed and show Arabian horses and their stunning home is often used as a location for filming television, movies and photo shoots.
I follow Gany on Instagram @BlueStallionFarm and love seeing photo updates and glimpses of life on the farm.
Even the tack room is full of beautiful design and style, I love these wooden saddle racks.
Animals grazing in the lush pasture. Along a farm full of horses, the Bernal family also produces fresh fruits and vegetables for themselves and to sell at the Yellow Green Farmer’s Market located in Hollywood, Florida. They also raise chickens for plenty of farm fresh eggs.
The home and living space at Blue Stallion is filled with lots of color and fun decor.
You can be sure to find pops of color every where!
My favorite things about this home include the colorful leather couches and interesting horse art throughout.
Each room has the perfect blend of equestrian, boho and eclectic style.
The green walls and tile floors open up the room with lots of natural light.
The mismatched prints and blue and yellow are so much fun.
The kitchen has been recently renovated and shows off the well curated collection of glassware, a dreamy mint colored fridge and wooden cabinets.

Easy oven baked lemon chicken over carrots.
I make chicken at least twice a week and always include it in our meal plans. My oven baked chicken over vegetables is easy, healthy and full of flavor. This recipe is perfect for fall and winter meals, whip up a side of mashed potatoes or a green salad to serve with this. I usually cook my chicken over carrots; the carrots slow cook for over an hour in the flavorful chicken juices.
This recipe could work with a whole chicken, thighs or chicken breasts. I usually buy the bone in thighs from Foster Farms because they taste great and I use the bones for soups after.
This oven baked lemon chicken uses one lemon, a cup of white wine, fresh thyme, bay leaves, olive oil, salt and pepper. It’s very basic and full of flavor.
Oven baked lemon chicken with herbs.
- 6 bone in thigh pieces of chicken (can substitute for breasts) with the skin on
- 6 large carrots cut in half lengthwise (or other vegetable of choice)
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1/2 cup white wine
- 3 bay leaves
- 1 lemon
- fresh thyme
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- Pre heat the oven to 315 degrees
- Place the sliced carrots (or other vegetable) in a large oven safe dish. I use an 4" x 11" dish.
- Pour over water and wine.
- Add in bay leaves.
- Place chicken breasts on top of the carrots.
- Add 6 sprigs of fresh thyme to the dish.
- Zest the lemon and then cut into slices. Sprinkle the lemon zest over the chicken and be sure to some zest in the liquid. Arrange slices of lemon on top of the chicken breasts.
- Drizzle the olive oil over the tops of the chicken breasts.
- Sprinkle with a generous amount of salt and pepper.
- Bake for 1 hour at 315 degrees then raise the temperature to 400 degrees and bake for an additional 30 minutes to brown the skins.

The Kacey for Lucchese cowboy boot collection is making its debut!
I love a good pair of cowboy boots and I love a good collaboration even more. I’ve been following Kacey Musgraves and Lucchese on Instagram for a while and was so excited to see this new collection. The Kacey for Lucchese boots are now available for pre-order through October 12th. The collection officially launches November 1, 2015 and those who order now will receive their boots first.
There are currently four styles available for pre-order with promises of more boot designs in the works. Kacey Musgraves is a native Texan and the perfect fit for this fun collaboration with Lucchese. I have seen quite a few comments on Instagram saying the boots aren’t affordable, but trust me – for a Lucchese boot these are affordable! As a boot lover, I tend to get scared of boots priced under $200 or $300 and question their quality. Do I have to save sometimes, yes! Is it worth it, absolutely!
Up first are the Gallop boots in Bridle Brown; they have a beautiful shape, three inch heels and fourteen inch shafts. The boots are made out of nubuck and have fun fringe details. Nubuck is top grain leather which has been buffed on the grain side to produce short fibers and a soft surface. Nubuck is very similar to suede but is made with the outer hide of the skin verses the inner hide which suede comes from.
My favorite pair from the collection are the Gallop boots in Dusty Pink. The outfit possibilities for these boots are endless!!! The Golden Arrow boot has a retro vibe and design, it does remind me of of earlier boot designs. For example, this pair of Stallion boots looks just like them. These are the short and sweet Monterrey boots, they have a nice pop of color and are extremely versatile.

Remember, you may pre-order now through October 12, 2015 online at Lucchese.com

A five ingredient Pumpkin Spice Oreo Fudge that will rock your tastebuds.
Limited edition Pumpkin Spice Oreos are delicious enough on their own, but my Pumpkin Spice Oreo Fudge is even better. If you haven’t tried Pumpkin Spice Oreos yet, you are missing out! Delicious vanilla cookies with a creamy pumpkin spice filling will have you wishing these cookies were always in season. I wanted to create a quick and easy fall dessert for upcoming company so I whipped up this batch of fudge. My recipe inspiration was from last year’s Easy Oreo Mint Fudge, that fudge was dangerously delicious.
All you need are Pumpkin Spice Oreos (available at most of your local grocery stores), white chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, M&Ms, and vanilla extract. I used almond M&Ms in my fudge but you can use any type of M&Ms you prefer; peanut butter, plain, crispy, pretzel or dark chocolate. I also picked out all of the green and blue candies so I had the perfect batch of fall colors.
A simple 5 ingredient Pumpkin Spice Oreo Fudge.
- 1 12 ounce package white chocolate chips
- 20 pumpkin spice Oreos
- 1 cup of M&Ms, any variety (I used almond)
- 1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Line an 8 x 8 or 12 x 12 inch baking pan with parchment paper so it hangs over the sides, pick your size depending on how thick you want your fudge to be. You may also use aluminum foil.
- Crush the M&Ms and pumpkin spice Oreos. Reserve a couple tablespoons of M&Ms for sprinkling on top of the fudge.
- Mix the candy and cookies in a bowl and set aside.
- Add white chocolate and sweetened condensed milk to a pan, stir slowly over a low heat until melted. Do not let the chocolate burn! You may use a double boiler if you want but it's not necessary.
- Once the chocolate is melted remove pan from the heat and stir in vanilla extract, cookies and M&Ms to the batter. Move quickly here and don't over stir.
- Spoon the fudge into a pan and sprinkle remaining Oreos and M&Ms on top of the fudge.
- Refrigerate the fudge overnight and cut into squares.
- Store in an air tight container for up to two weeks.
Ps. this fudge also freezes well if you want to save some for later.
This fudge is a crowd pleaser!
