TGIF! Let’s relax and kick up our feet this weekend. You might have seen this photo on my Instagram feed last week and if not, that’s okay. I created these DIY studded flats for Best Friends For Frosting, they are the ultimate girly, girl site with tons of great food, entertaining and lifestyle ideas. You can read the full post and instructions for DIY on Best Friends For Frosting.
Here are the flats before the studs.
Definitely much better, I wore these stylish little flats out with a pair of breeches from Horze.

The weather is FINALLY getting warmer! It’s been a rough and cold winter and I am looking forward to many warm sunny days. I actually had a chance to wear a dress this weekend! I also realized how pale I am from winter… oh dear. Less than two months until the wedding and I really need to start working on my tan.
This strawberry maxi dress from Mundo Looks was the perfect dress for a windy day by the lake. It was comfortable and I love the dip hem on it. And now that I mention Mundo Looks, have you heard of them yet? The newly launched online store has a ton of cute dresses and tops for summer. I even have a promo code for you to use at checkout – horses100 gets you a generous 25% off your purchase!

Egg bakes are an easy breakfast and are also great for “cleaning out the fridge” – you know what I am talking about, add a little of this and a little of that. This egg bake has potatoes, cheese, sausage, scallions and eggs of course! I usually want a big breakfast in the morning especially since I stopped snacking at night, I wake up pretty hungry!
An easy egg bake with potatoes, sausage and cheddar cheese.
- Butter (for greasing the dish)
- 1 medium sized potato
- 3 sausage patties
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded or cubed
- 1 tablespoon Sriracha (can substitute hot sauce)
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- scallions, chopped for garnish
- Pre heat the oven to 300 degrees.
- Microwave the potato for about 5 minutes on the potato setting and grease your baking dish with butter on the bottom and sides.
- Also cook your sausage patties for about 5 minutes while the potato is in the microwave.
- Carefully slice the hot potato and mash it to the bottom of the dish.
- Remove sausage from the pan, blot off any grease and crumble into a large glass.
- Crack eggs and add to the glass.
- Stir in cheese, Sriracha, garlic salt, and pepper.
- Mix everything up with a fork and pour it into the baking dish.
- Bake for 30 minutes.
- Garnish with scallions and serve hot.
Feel free to add or change anything in this recipe and have a great breakfast or brunch!
I have not one, but three pairs of fabulous cowboy boots to share with you today. These are all Anderson Bean cowboy boots from Mule Barn Boutique in Madisonville, Texas.
Above are the “Jungle Fever” boots, they have awesome turquoise stitching on top and wild print on the toes. The Anderson Bean “Viper” boots are red-hot and an exclusive design to Mule Barn. If you like black and red, these are just the boots for you.These Anderson Bean Clyde boots offer traditional square toes and an antiqued tooled turquoise top. Classic style with just a bit of an edge.

I have a quick spring DIY project for you! Turn a display of flowers into an equestrian center piece by adding a few colorful ribbon heads on sticks. Tulips are in abundance this time of year at the market and grocery stores so I picked up a beautiful bunch to display. Creating the ribbon decor on a stick is easy and you can reference how to do it in this DIY: Ribbon Decor post.
Sure, plain tulips do look nice….
But they look even better with my ribbons! Use different colored ribbons or flowers for themed parties, events or just because!
A new show season might have you out shopping for the essentials. Allow me to introduce you to Noble Outfitters, they offer practical products for the rider that won’t break the bank. Above are a few bags, you never know when you are going to need extra clothes or just a little more storage. Buy a bag and keep it packed with extra clothes and first items so you always have it. Extra hoof picks are always a good thing to have in the barn and trailer. Is it just me or do they always seem to walk off? A knife for opening hay bales or other tasks is a do. Picture on the right is the Viper Pocket Knife available in many cool colors. Noble Outfitters sent me the knife with zebra print and it has been awesome, plus I love the girly touches. One extra pair of socks or a pair of riding socks is not enough! Whether you ride english or western, you can use a pair of these. The material is light weight, breathable and keeps you comfortable all day long. I tried the Over The Calf Peddies with lace print (bottom) and was impressed with their thin and breathable technology. Ps. I also wore these socks when I went running and they were perfect so don’t limit them to just the barn if you are an active person like I am. Stay tuned for more from Noble Outfitters.
