Recipe Review: Fresh Cucumber Salad

Found Here

Today I was craving something that tastes fresh and light and instantly remembered making this salad last summer and loving it. The sweetness of the honeydew mixed with the tart greek yogurt and a kick of jalapeno really makes this a salad to remember.


I highly suggest this as a quick summer snack or the perfect plate to bring to an upcoming barbecue. Recently I have been trying to eat healthier and this salad is a great healthy and filling alternative (just go easy on the salt!)

Sinfulcolors in Summer Peach

While walking through Walgreens today I saw this amazing color on sale and had to pick it up… for $2.00 who can resist?! I am so excited about the way it came out and the brightness is just the right amount. 





Personally I am a Sephora by OPI snob and never buy any other brands of nail polish, but surprising this brand is great quality for the price. I only needed two coats and it came out with such a great bright color. Between this intensely bright nail polish and the absolutely beautiful day out today it is really starting to feel like summer!
