Things I Love: June Edition

Veev Açaí Spirit
I was chosen by to host a VeeV Summer of the Superfruit Cocktails House Party and boy did I have fun. Not only is Veev my new choice of vodka (hello! Açaí berries FTW) but drinking it also helps the rainforest. Seriously. For every bottle purchased, Veev donates $1 to Rainforest preservation through The Sustainable Açaí Project. Veev is also the only certified carbon neutral spirits company in the world. I received a Veev party pack from and a discount coupon for two bottles of Veev. All opinions are my own.

The ‘Father of the Bride’ House
One of my all-time favorite movies is Father of the Bride with Steve Martin, Diane Keaton, Martin Short and Kimberly Williams-Paisley. The family’s house was my dream home and if only I had a million dollars, actually $1.35 million to be exact, I could buy it. Dream on, Robin.

Pineapple Mango Peach Popsicles

Popsicles and summer go hand in hand and to kick off the beginning of the best time of year, I made these super easy pops out of three ingredients (below). I’d totally tell you how many cups of this and that to throw in the blender but I kind of winged it. Guess that’s why my food/drinks never come out the same each time. Luckily, these popsicles turned out just fine.

  • Plain yogurt
  • Pineapple/mango juice
  • Frozen peaches

Mix the three ingredients in a blender. Pour into popsicle molds. Freeze for at least two hours.

Cake pops
Did Bakerella know that she would inspire millions of people to make tons and tons of cake pops for all sorts of occasions? Probably. That’s why she wrote this book:

Add a little sparkle to this rainy day

With the sun no where in sight, I decided to spend my Saturday afternoon in doors, catching up on work, making cakepops, and Pinning. The apartment feels like a cave without much light coming in through the windows and my 15 minute “sparkle break” began.
