Lily Jade Giveaway!

This Giveaway has ended!  Our winner was announced on Instagram! 

I'm crazy about my Lily Jade Diaper Bag.  It is great - stylish on the outside and easy on the inside!
I love the exterior pockets and the jade green beads and tassel but the best part is hidden.  Once you open that bag you will find all of your baby needs tucked in to the wonderful nylon insert.  But the best part is that the nylon insert can be easily lifted out and placed inside any other bag!  Sometimes I grab it and put in my oversized handbag.  Other times, I stick it in the bottom of the stroller or another light canvas bag.  My Type A personality is in love!

Here is the great news:  We are giving one away thanks to the generous team at Lily Jade!
If you win, they will let you select your favorite from their stylish selection.

Three simple steps to enter:
1. Leave a comment here
3. Like it and re-post it for a chance to win!  

I'll select the winner tomorrow and announce it on Instagram!
Good Luck!

Guest Recipe Post: Mint and Lime Margarita from Esoteric Events

I'm sure you will enjoy this Mint and Lime Margarita as much as I did!  Big huge thanks to the amazing Kristin Alexander or  Esoteric Events for sharing! Her blog is gorgeous and recipe is D-lish!

The margarita is one of my all time favorite cocktails. Did you know that tequila can aid in digestion? It’s also been shown that tequila is a better choice of liquor for those with blood sugar sensitivities. But with the start of the New Year and health goals taking precedence for many, the traditional margarita tends to become a thing of the past (at least until Cinco de Mayo!). But we shouldn’t forget about the cocktail entirely! By reinventing the margarita, with a focus on keeping it fresh and simple, the cocktail becomes a healthier alternative, and one that we can enjoy in moderation while still focusing on our goals. My guilt-free version of the margarita, with mint, lime and agave, preserves the refreshing flavor we all adore while keeping sugar and calories low.

When stacked up against other liquors, tequila ranks healthier than its counterparts. Believe it or not, but 1 oz. has less than 70 calories! I start by grabbing my go-to tequila, Corzo. I add fresh mint and lime juice, simple but ultra flavorful, to a shaker with ice with Corzo, St. Germain and a splash of agave syrup. Then I shake until cold. Why agave? I reach for it in place of another sugar option as the body is able to break down the simple sugars produced by the agave plant more easily. After preparing the rim of my favorite margarita glass with salt (which is optional for those eliminating excess salt from their diet), I pour into the glass, add a mint leaf, and start sipping away. My Mint and Lime Margarita always delivers a fresh zing of flavors while staying conscientious to diet goals. Here’s to sticking to those resolutions!
