I am so incredibly thankful to partner with Wisdom Panel on our quest to finally solve the mystery of our beloved Chip. And, most importantly, finally have an answer to “I love the little brown one! What is he?” All opinions are my own. I vividly remember the day I held Chip in my arms for the first time. It’s the… View Post
I think we can all agree that beauty and self-care are super important to every woman. Self-care in our 30s is a little different than that of our 20s. Just the thought of some of my past self-care faux pas in my 20s gives me a knee-jerk cringe reaction…
It’s official–I’ve been bitten by the pineapple passion fever. I teamed up with Alizé Passion to create a delicious Caribbean-inspired cocktail that will make you feel the sea breeze in not time using (you guessed it) pineapple + passionfruit juices!
My happy place–the beach. When family and friends visit us from out of town, trips to the beach are a given. But after a trip to my happy place, between the sweat, sunscreen, and sand, a shower is the first thing on my mind (after food, of course!) Do you have a favorite shower gel?

On one particularly scorching summer day, a kind woman offered me freshly squeezed ‘limonada‘ on my way back to my grandmother’s… View Post
It’s me again, the crazy plant lady! I promise not to bore you with minute details of my garden, but can you BELIEVE the growth of these petunias?! While the Sir Winston Churchill narcissus haven’t bloomed yet (I’m not sure if it’s too early or if the bulbs are too young) the red and white petunias and my Burford hollies have put on quite a show in the front yard.
It occurred to me recently that I am always keeping busy. Designing websites and blogs (if you need a Blogger to WordPress migration, I’m your girl!), gardening, cleaning, walking the dogs, laundry, et cetera, et cetera. Somehow in between all of that I manage to pluck my eyebrows and shave my legs on occasion. Is it any wonder that my skin… View Post
Hello, my name is Lisette and my middle name is “I love me some wine and cheese.” If by the title of my blog you guessed correctly, I am from the North and I now live in the South. It’s treated me well, and while I will always love the North, Florida is my new home. I’ve learned a few new words… View Post
