monday {menu}



Lemon Vanilla French Toast with Strawberries
{Serves 4-6}

1 loaf vegan lemon vanilla challah or another challah/brioche, cut into 3cm/1in slices
375ml / 1 1/2 cups nondairy milk (I use oat)
4 eggs*
1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder or 1 teaspoon extract
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Zest of a lemon
Coconut oil, for cooking


In a shallow bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, vanilla, salt, and lemon zest. Dip the bread slices into the egg mixture, letting them soak for a minute each side.

Heat a large pan over medium heat with about a teaspoon of coconut oil. Once the pan is hot, cook 2-3 slices of french toast at a time, until golden, about 3 minutes each side. Repeat until all of the bread has been used. Serve immediately with coconut yogurt, strawberries, and maple syrup.


enjoy

happy mother's day


A mother is there through thick and thin... A mother will always weather the storm with you... A mother will be your fashion stylist... A mother will shut down a situation when need be... A mother will always be your biggest cheerleader... A mother laughs when your jokes aren't funny... A mother helps each and everyone... A mother stays up late and finishes the job... A mother holds you till you stop crying... A mother listens to everything... A mother teaches you when you need teaching... A mother holds your hand... A mother kisses you when you need a kiss... A mother cherishes every gift given... A mother is your best friend... A mother is your first friend... A mother is your last friend... A mother will never give up on her children... A mother loves you f o r e v e r

I have the most amazing mother who has taught me everything!  She has helped me grow into the woman I am today. She teaches me each and everyday how to raise my children with grace and style. Life isn't always red roses, but watching her keep her head up high and walk through thorns when need be has always captivated me. I will always cherish every day with her... And thank her for all that she has done. You have no idea how amazing she really is!  We have weathered storms like you wouldn't imagine... But I do know we have come out together even better. Strength comes within... Some have it and some do not. Thank you mom for being the best mom ever... I am truly blessed to have you in my life!

I know that I have been so so lucky with the most amazing little family ever. I wouldn't trade my angels for the world... They are my true rocks and I love them so much! I couldn't imagine life not being a mom. I understand that being a mom is a true gift... And I choose to cherish that gift f o r e v e r. I know caring words and positive guidance will help my babies grow in this world. I will never give up on them... Ever! I look forward to many more fabulous adventures with them. Our travels and life really has just begin! I do have to say, I was given the greatest gift ever! I love being mom! Thank you Taylor and Ryan... Mommy loves you! 

Happy Mother's Day 
to all 
the moms out there!

to do list...


And just like that the week is all done... Were you productive? Did you get everything checked off your to do list? I have this college ruled notepad that I've been adding my to do list on and love it. So far it's  working. I know some like to put lists on the computer, but my old school notepad does the trick just fine for me. I think its the fact I can write my list down with a sharpie and  then check everything off with colored pens. I know we all try so hard to get stuff done in a timely fashion, but what i've come to realize If I just do 5 to 10+ tasks for the day I'm a total rockstar! Now, to push yourself harder to get that list done... Set a timer for 22 minutes and kick butt! Ask yourself, "What can I get done in 22 minutes?" I started to do it and ABSOLUTELY LOVE it... I really kick butt and work hard. Seriously, Try it! 22 minutes is all it takes to get TONS done. Then move on to the next project or get out of the house and have fun. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend. I'm looking forward to a little mother love this Sunday!!! Any special Mother's Day plans?

a bag a day...

{all images from rustic rooster pinterest}

Have you heard the word on the street... A bag a day keeps the doctor away. Ha Ha don't we all wish! I would be on cloud 9 if that was the case {wink}. I've restocked our leather Paloma bags.  Summers around the corner... So don't miss out on getting your bag while you still can! They really are the perfect beach {everything} bags!

the right mix



{all images from rustic rooster pinterest}

I'm L O V I N G all of these images right now! Seriously how fun are they! From the 1960's bronco to the boho round beach bag, petal pink kimono style linen dress to the oh so chic bedroom image... I feel the need to freshen up a few things at my house. With summer around the corner and the windows and doors soon to be open wide... I've got to step up my game and do a few changes. Here's what I like to suggest to my clients when they need a little help on fleshing up.  Change out your tray on your coffee table, add a new vase next to your nightstand with fresh color flowers in it and new pillows are always fun and eye catching! Of course adding a new dress to your wardrobe wouldn't hurt either... Hey, live a little and enjoy!
