Hope you all had a nice and relaxing 4th of July weekend. We took the boat out, went to a pool party, grilled out with some friends and watched the fireworks, it was a perfect long weekend.

I am really loving this color combination for interiors which is funny because I am not a huge purple lover. But I love it mixed with subtle gray.

I have a new chef crush thanks to Bravo. I had heard of Rocco before but didn't know too much about him. I am now hooked on his TV show, Rocco's Dinner Party. He can be kind of an arrogant dick but that makes me like him even more. I think he is so sexy. I have a soft spot for men that know their way around a kitchen.

I have a slight obsession with candles. These are my new favorite candles. They have a sleek modern look and smell amazing! They are made with an Eco wood burning wick instead of a regular wick, so they last longer. I have been loving the Yasmin and Tuberose scents.

Milly makes some of my favorite bikinis. I am partial to a strapless bikini because I hate a strap tan line. I bought my first Milly bikini 4 years ago right before our honeymoon and I have been hooked ever since. They fit perfectly and look cute. Here is my new favorite.

I have had the hardest time finding an eyeliner that I like. One that is not too thick and goes on smooth. I have tried gel, the flat liner kind you wet, you name it I have tried them all. Oddly enough my new favorite is a good ole black pencil by Nars. It goes on perfectly smooth. Their bronzer is also amaze, it is the perfect color without being too orange.

Enough said, I am making these this week, even though I am supposed to be on a diet after my binge filled weekend. I can't resist. I love a Reese's Cup and I imagine these are scrumptious.

I totally agree with the eyeliner thing, might need to try this one. Hope y'all had a fab fourth!

The Nars bronzer is my favorite too! And totally agree about the purple and grey, gorgeous combo! Hope you had a great 4th! xo

Jill said...

OMG your recipes are the best!!!

I love the purple/grey combo every time i see it, but that combo would not go with my house.

Love Rocco's dinner party and half of his charm is that he can be an ass!!

That bikini is fabulous, go treat yourself to it today:)

I love Milly swimsuits, but sadly they do not fit me. I usually tend to stick with Vix becuase they fit so well on top. I also hate tan lines, but very rarely do I find a strapless suit that will hold me up. ;)

Not a huge fan of purple, but I really like all three pictures that you posted. That tablecloth is fabulous!

MMM those peanut butter cups looks so yummy! Let us know how they go! Also, love that bikini..super cute!

Val said...

I've made those peanut butter cups before and they are seriously addicting. Speaking of addicting....Nars make-up is my biggest weakness when I go to Sephora. Happy Tuesday!

Taylor said...

Nars eyeliner and bronzer are my two make up staples (and chapstick)! I haven't found anything better than those two. I have been loving Rocco's dinner party too, but have to admit, I feel like in person I would want to slap him. He seems like a total ass, but the show is great!

Michaela said...

Ah, one of my favorite color combos for sure!

Chassity (Look Linger Love) said...

Luv the color combo, rocco does rock, and pretty please bring me a homemade reeses!! ;)

Tiffany said...

Homemade Reeces cups...I can't even! They look delicious!! And Rocco and Candles...you had me at hello.

Becca said...

I'm excited to attempt those Reese cups! Love Rocco too!


Julip Made said...

That first images has been in my inspiration files forever!! and those home made reeses cups!!! yummmm!

Aubrey {All Things Bright and Beautiful} said...

Oooo...also crushing on this color combo (even though I am also not generally a purple person)...I am just on a gray kick in general. And homemade REESES??? GAH! I am going to weigh about 400lbs soon and I'm going to come sit on your couch and cry about it! Naw, I have some self restraint...I won't cry (c:

designchic said...

The color combination is gorgeous, and I know better than to even look at the reese cup recipe...it would be deadly for me to know how to make these!!

Carter (The Mean Mom Chronicles) said...

Ummm....the Reeses cups? *swoon*
Looks like I picked a bad week to stop eating sweets.

Liz at Style and Ease said...

Hilarious description of Rocco - love your honesty!

Sundresses and Smiles said...

I NEED to make those Resses!

Natalie said...

Ashley said...
