Dress up a sugar cookie

Everyone loves a cookie; but, why not dress it up during the summer with some fresh fruit?  I had some ready to bake sugar cookies in the freezer and some strawberries and yogurt from my breakfasts.

You will need:

  • sugar cookie

  • yogurt

This is sooo simple it would be ridiculous to take photographs of every step.  Bake the cookies according to the package.  Once done, and cooled, put about a tablespoon of yogurt on the top of the cookie.  I used vanilla yogurt but feel free to use any flavor.  I then sprinkled coconut flakes on and topped with strawberries.

Another great flavor I tried was peanut butter and banana.  I added a little bit of peanut butter to the tablespoon of yogurt and mixed well before slathering on top of the cookie.  I then put a few slices of banana on top.  Ahhhhh-maze-ing!

Blonde vs. Brunette – Independence Day Challenge

July 4th Celebrations are right around the corner!  Whether you’re going to watch fireworks with a special someone, partying with a group of friends, or cooking out with your family, the 4th of July is the perfect time to play around with fresh and fun outfit ideas.

LOOK #1 – USA All Day

This a comfy outfit that can be worn all day in the blistering sun and be comfy for the cool summer night.  Look at the maxi dress more like a skirt by wearing a cropped shirt over it.  Also try a chambray shirt as fall and cooler weather approaches.  Because this is an all day outfit, I paired a metal detail sandal that is both comfy and chic.

LOOK #2 – ONE OF THE GOOD OLE’ BOYS

This is a casual cookout look.  Nothing beats a good pair of chuck taylor converse and the white are perfect for the summer (if you can keep them clean).  This tank may be in the men’s section but I like the fact that it would be a little bigger in the arm hole.  Grab a red zip up because a good cookout always goes long after the sun goes down.

LOOK #3 – BABY YOU’RE A FIREWORK

This suit is AWESOME.  The retro shape and contrasting lines will be the perfect silhouette for all body types.  And the belt hits at the smallest part of a women’s waist and will create an amazing shape.  This suit is so fierce throw on a floppy hat, sexy wedges, some big sunglasses and work it!

ALEX – THE BRUNETTE

LOOK #1 – BE ALL THAT YOU CAN BE

The theme of this look is tough chick patriotism .  It’s a different take on the usual red-white-n-blue theme, but still shows your love for the good ‘ol USA.  I would wear something like this to a cookout with family and friends.

LOOK #2 – PEACE, LOVE & AMERICA 

Cue Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix music, now please.  This outfit is my modern take on Woodstock meets Fourth of July.  The flower crown doesn’t have to be for the bold and daring; the small flowers are simple and not overwhelming.  I love the look of a high waisted midi skirt and a tube top or bralette; very feminine and fun.  Finish the look off with a pair of comfortable wedges and you’ve got yourself a perfect outfit to wear for your honey while you enjoy the fireworks!

LOOK #3 – American Woman

This look is for all of us wild women out there who just like to have a damn good time and look cool while doing it.  The graphic tee is so freaking fantastic and perfect for this edgy, rock ‘n roll vibe.  Aviators will always be badass and the bright red ankle boots are killerrrrrr.  To keep it not-so-costumey I’d go with a pair of sweet embroidered shorts, to contrast the hardness of the rest of the outfit.  Rock on, America.
