One of the most comfortable summer things are wide legged pants or culottes (a shorter, calf length wide-legged pant). Wear it with a breezy crochet or lace crop top and your ready to take the summer-time weekend!

Beauty Buzz; Peachy Summer Look

This week try out a new lightweight, fresh new summer look. You don't need a lot, just a bronzy cheek  and a peachy lip. Tie your hair back to keep your crazy "fly-away hair" in tact (like me). I used Bobbi Brown  Duo Mascara (one side is Extreme length and the other is No Smudge waterproof), Ideal for vacations along the sea.
Tone your face with fleur d'orange water (orange blossom water), it is refreshing and energizing. 
 Then moisturize, I use a moisturizer with SPF in it and I recently started using a BB cream. The BB cream is nice and light weight with a higher SPF. it evens out red spots and gives the skin a glow without looking like a cake.
I use my fingers to apply the BB cream, the warmth of your hands will make it set well.
Apply Bronzer with a flat brush, right underneath your cheekbones and on your temples  in upward motion.
 Smile slightly and apply a peachy-coral blush to the apples of your cheeks.
This season I am into the peaces and cream orange lipstick to complete the look.
 Et Voila! Your summer look, ready to go!

Weekend by the sea

Rediscovering my island is a delight. Last weekend we drove around and ended up at a fishers bay Boca Sami, St. Michiel. we had an amazing lunch of fresh fish and "funchi hasa" something like polenta fries. For dessert local ladies walk around selling fresh pastries like "tert di coco" a coconut pie-like pastry. 
Spending time along the water is amazing and here in Curaçao this is possible everyday!

Oatmeal Cookie, Ice-cream Sandwich

I made these sour cherry, white chip oatmeal cookies and to make this party complete I added ice-cream and created sandwiches.
I used this recipe ("here") and added dried sour cherries and white chocolate chips. 
Of course you could add anything you like to the oatmeal cookies like; 
Macadamia and white chips, 
Dried apricots and white chips,
Pistachio and dried cranberries, 
Pecans and dark chocolate chips.
Pick your favorite and create a summer party!
Make the basic recipe and spoon in the add-in ingredients last...
Let them cool down completely (I even popped them in the freezer).
Then scoop one scoop of half soft ice-cream in the middle of he flat side of the cookie and lightly press another on top. 
Wrap them individually in foil and pop them back in the freezer for another hour or two.
Et Voila! Serve them straight out of the freezer. Enjoy!!

Flora

Okay, my love for bougainvillea has grown to an obsession, but they are so pretty! My love for black and white stripes combined wit a flower print has also extended to a slight obsession. It is the perfect balance, two opposite prints and color vs monotone.
