I've been in Southern Utah for the last week and it has been so fun. Warm weather, lots of friend catch ups, some missed food, and warm weather. Oh, did I mention the weather was Sooooooo warm?
Today, us LOTM are sharing some of our favorite recipes. Recipes that will help give you energy before, during, or after that mountain activity.
This is one of my favorite recipes- and it's SO easy! I've been doing this for years and just recently added Peanut Butter. It is seriously like ice cream. The peanut butter not only adds protein but makes it INCREDIBLY creamy.
Give it a try and check out the other recipes!
and our guest blogger-
Last week I had the opportunity to attend a Blogger's Night at Old Navy in SLC. They invited a few of us bloggers in to choose an outfit, style some mannequins, then help any customers that wanted it.
Can you guess which mannequin is mine??
The shift dress, of course!
I really kind of wanted to take home this outfit as well. I loved the necklaces (which actually sold, thanks to my mannequin!) and the shoes (not that i could wear the shoes. :P
The other bloggers involved were Amy, Jessie, and Sasha. (yes, I'm tiny) I love each of these ladies!
We had so much fun hanging out together!
Old Navy had set up a refreshment table and handed out tote bags to customers.
One of my favorite parts was meeting one of my favorite bloggers- Megan from The Beauty Snoop! (you may remember her spring hair trends post HERE)
Old Navy has really stepped up their game! We were all so impressed with everything (especially the fact that no "Old Navy" logos were in sight! Well, at least on the clothing. I will definitely be shopping at Old Navy more, the pants I chose are seriously my favorite pants, currently! Incredibly comfortable and cute!
I'll be posting photos of my outfit, next week.
Summer is coming. I promise! I have been in the South for a few days, and it is practically here. Don't worry northerners, it will come!
THIS dress from Head Over Heels is a perfect dress for Summer. The bright pink bottom with the cream lace top have "fun in the sun" written all over them.
To make the dress a bit more modest I added a chambray shirt (honestly, what DON'T I add a chambray shirt to? someone stop me), then- add the hat and it made for a perfect "day in the desert" outfit.
I promise I'm not pregnant, this picture just looks like it because I was arching my back apparently...
Be sure to check out Head Over Heels new website or if you're in Utah, check them out in person!

When Blowfish contacted me about styling a pair of their shoes, I was excited... except for the fact that they don't make my tiny size 4. I told them this and they said "well, let's just let your sister pick out a pair and she can style them.". As you can imagine, my sister was pretty excited.
She chose the Tacita wedges from the Spring collection and has worn them multiple times already. They're bright and funky, yet comfortable and can go with more than you would think! They're shoes, so they're an accessory, and I say- have fun with your accessories!
Lucky you, Blowfish is giving away a pair of shoes to one of my readers! Enter below!!

I was able to have dinner with the lovely Jet from Fashion Utah. This girl is amazing, I want to be like her when I grow up. If you live in Utah and are looking for a way to be informed about Utah fashion events, style tips, local boutiques, and more- check out Fashion Utah!
On another note-
I was able to get my hands on a new lens for my camera (been working with the kit lens since I got my camera in July) and wow... Just WOW! The difference is amazing. Don't have a lens for your camera? Get one.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
This is where i will be for the next few days... Back to the south. I was so excited to leave that place, I missed my mountains in the north. But now, 6 months since I moved home, I find myself craving that desert. While I didn't make a lot of friends in my time there, the ones I did make are so dear to me. I can't wait to see them! Oh, and my favorite smoothie is there, super excited for that!
I spent the other day hanging out with one of my best friends, her mom, and her younger sister. Her sister is celebrating her birthday, so her mom wanted to give her something special. This beautiful girl you see just needed a pick me up. Something to make her see her true beauty (because, hello! She is gorgeous inside and out). So I went over, did her makeup, picked out her outfit (why yes, that is the SAME shirt you have seen everyday on my blog... get your own here), and snapped some photos.
We had a blast. I love this family so much, and this girl is so incredibly sweet.
You may remember seeing her sister on this here blog, a few times. It's only right that she take a turn.
What's a birthday without cake...pops?! I love that we added that fun little bouquet to the shoot.
Then just for fun, her sister and mom jumped in. Such a happy family, I love it.
Remember to contact me for all your makeup and styling needs!

I messed up yesterdays "flyer". So pay attention to this one!!
I'm pretty much obsessed with this shirt from Lulus (the mint is gone, but you can still find it in taupe/yellow). I've tried to not wear it, I really have... But I can't help it. Plus the mint shade kept me pinch free all day, yesterday.
These earrings (I hope you can see them) are from Color by Amber and I'm loving them as well. They're a lovely gem stone shape.
I've never really celebrated St. Patricks Day, have you? What do you do to make it a fun holiday? The most I do is wear green and maybe eat some chocolate coins...
I hope you are all having a great start to your week! Don't forget to transfer your google reader blogs over to Bloglovin!!
St. Patrick's Day is only a couple days away, and we need to be ready to avoid those pinches. So here is some green style inspiration for you! More of my outfit will come next week (after the holiday has passed, of course...) but you can check out my Daily Dish segment and all the photos below!
