Friday Five

I must be craving Spring cleaning or something, but I found myself itching to find new ideas for home organization.  I think I'll try some of these this weekend!

1/  Weekly menu planner would really help organize grocery lists!
2/  Printable labels for your kitchen basics... find 'em here!
3/  Paint over old tins to hold knick knacks
4/  Use lace to organize bathroom drawers

Then there's my personal favorite...


5/  Cute and feminine labels for all your bath products in Starbucks frap jars... see the full DIY here!

What are your favorite ways to organize?

Have a fabulous weekend!

Wine-O Wednesday... mmm

Last night, my sister and I had a little sister date at a local restaurant called The Wine Guy... needless to say, it was amazing!  It's known for their selection of wine (over 2,000 bottles for sale!) as well as their tapas plates.  We settled on a spicy red wine and multiple plates to share.  I loved the grilled bruschetta and the glazed scallops the most, but the chicken marsala and grilled salmon were also wonderful!

I must say... without a doubt, we'll be back again! Check it out here!

What to Wear Wednesday: Mastering the high low hem

I wore my new high low hem skirt for the first time last Friday night to celebrate a friend's birthday.  I instantly fell in love with how it billows when you walk, creating a glamorous effect.  Since then, I've been daydreaming of how to outfit it more.  A friend of mine suggested a boxy crop top... I liked the sound of it!  Here's what I came up with:

Quick & Easy Upscale Brunch: Breakfast Pizza

A couple weekends ago, I decided to try a recipe found here for a fanciful breakfast pizza. It was really wonderful and so easy to make.  Since this, though, I've created my own masterpiece with scrambled eggs, which I prefer!
