We just noticed that our all-time favorite candle is available as a 4-pack these days!!!

We’ve taken to burning them en-masse so that the aroma floods the home in no time flat…so the 4-at-a-time deal really rings our belle!!

Get the 4-pack here and the single here at Amazon

PS…this makes a great gift, too. Just sayin’

a belle-icious last minute appetizer…

, ,

We love it when a belle or two drop in for a visit…or being invited to a last minute get together. Impromptu moments require just a few tricks up your sleeve so you’ll always have a lil something to put out or take along.

This delicious hors d’oeuvres is one we’d forgotten about and are so glad we rediscovered it in our repertoire of easy, tasty recipes. We just brought it along to a spontaneous get together and it was a great hit!

The best part is it can be made with ingredients that you likely will have or can keep for quite some time in your larder.

We also like the fact that it’s easy pick up food, no muss no fuss!

Apricot goat cheese delight

Ingredients:

Dried apricots

Goat cheese

Marcona almonds (preferably salted)

Honey

Fresh thyme (optional)

Take out your platter and lay out your apricots. Top with a dollop of goat cheese. Place an almond on each apricot. Drizzle with honey. Sprinkle with thyme if desired .

So delicious….just sayin

Bon appétit, belles!!

We love to share our favorite things…and love to hear about yours as well! So when we find a must-have, we can’t wait to let ya know! Such as…a staple that one of us has in her bag-o-tricks (purse) at all times…

Stila Convertible Color in “petunia” (a peachy coral)

or in “Lillium” (a more reserved nude/ pink)…available at Sephora, Ulta, Nordstrom, and Amazon

The creamy, coral goodness of “petunia” is a great pick-me-up to a tired, washed out face. It’s an instant lift to the spirits and the look! Tap onto cheeks, smooth onto the lips, and you are ready to face the day (or night!)

“Lillium” is a universally flattering pink that’ll make ’em wonder how you got that glow!

They’ll ring your belle. We promise.

We been having a serious love affair lately with J Brand lately. Their fits are consistent, their style classic and their variety makes sure that there is something for everyone.

Our latest purchase was this Jean.

We are huge fans of wearing white denim all year round, and the lace on the bottom of these with its slightly creamier tone will make this is a go-to pair.
