      Colorful Mocktails: Prickly Pear Pink Champagne

      Colorful Mocktails: Prickly Pear Pink Champagne

      Spring has sprung but only on the calendar in the Northeast. Cold and rainy days lead to frigid nights with the occasional burst of warmth and sun. While it may be a few more weeks before the weather actually reflects the season, I've moved ahead with my budding bevy of beverages.

      To start things off, I give you a celebratory brunch booster - my Prickly Pear Pink Champagne. A friend from my taste tester group has already served this pretty-in-pink, slightly sweet, subtly tangy bubbler at a baby shower and it was a hit!

      Color Collective: Links to Colorful Living, Vol. 14

      You may have noticed that I've been M.I.A. from the blog for over a month. Life has an unpredictable flow - sometimes it moves at a snail's pace then suddenly lifts you out of your comfort zone and tosses you into unfamiliar spaces with no instruction manual. That kind of explains the last few weeks of my life.

      I've moved my personal and professional lives to a brand new city with brand new energy. It's been exciting and unsettling. Anyone who has moved into a new home knows that it takes a village but we only had a tiny hamlet. The adventure continues....

      What is beyond me is that while most everything has been unpacked and put in its proper place, there are still some items from my kitchen that either lost their way, decided they weren't willing to make the move with us or have just vanished into thin air. I thought hosting a small dinner party last week for a few friends was a good idea but in the process, I had to repurchase many things I thought I already had. 

      One thing that was on my side was that I was able to catch a few fabulous sales on dinnerware, drinkware and cookware. Here are a few things I bought or want to buy for cooking and entertaining that may still be available at great prices:

       

      1.  These knives are so durable and stay sharp.

       



      2.  I bought these large bowls in all of my favorite colors.

      3.  This cookware set is the very best, IMO.

      4.  I'm a master Mocktail Mixologist so it's mandatory that I have interesting glassware.

      Colorful Quarters: The Art Of Decorating With Wall Mirrors

      Colorful Quarters: The Art Of Decorating With Wall Mirrors

      Juliet reflected in wall mirror from Target. (sold out but here's a similar one)

      Mirrors aren't just designed for reflecting. They're also the perfect solution for making a space feel larger and brighter. Decorating walls with mirrors really gives you an edge when it comes to adding a new dimension to the rooms in your home!

      The possibilities of decorating with mirrors go beyond seeing what we look like as we head out the door. The latest home decor trends show that decorating walls with mirrors is not just practical, it's also a very effective way to interject your style economically but a necessity. Mirrors are often an inexpensive fix for the need for an energy shift. The strategic placement of mirrors in one place or another can have a dramatic effect on how large a room seems or even how open and light-filled a room can be.

      Everything depends on the size, style, color, shape, natural light of the room. And also the function that the mirror really has to play in that space. Sometimes they are simply there to make the place bigger and others to multiply the sensation of light. Yet, others are only mirrors to look at, but full of style and in harmony with us and our home.

      Using a mirror decoratively is actually treating it like a piece of art. When selecting a position for it, select an area that really shows it off to best attributes. Unlike a picture, though, a mirror's reflection needs to be carefully considered – that reflection will, in effect become a piece of art in itself. So, if you can position your mirror to reflect a beautiful view, fabulous architecture or a wonderful light fixture, you have mastered the art of decorating with wall mirrors.

      Below, I've listed nine wall mirrors that can transform your home with a simple placement. You want your home to be special and each corner to have its own personality? Shop my product board!
