Etsy Love: Fleet Collection

It's been such a long while since I've featured an Etsy shop that I love and when I saw the pretty, flowy and feminine dresses and tops of Fleet Collection, I was inspired to share them. 

Isn't this yellow a fabulous color? Perfect for a summer outing. 

I'm a sucker for ruffles but not over the top ruffles and this top gets it just right. That bow on the back and the dreamy color make me a bit envious that this piece isn't in my closet. Hmmm..... 

Glorious green. This is two for the price of one - the scarf and top come together. This would be adorable with a pair of skinny jeans and some bright flats and chunky gold jewelry. 

Hop over to Fleet Collection and check out their fun jewelry too (and the prices are quite reasonable!)

Nibbles and Diapers (but not together)


Hi there. So if you haven"t noticed, this new mom thing has me all tuckered out what with the middle-of-the-night feedings, frequent baths, diaper changes, burp and play times, etc. As my sad absence of posting shows, I've sort of lost my blogging mojo. 
I did however find some inspiration in a bag of fresh apricots I got at the market this week.  Luckily, Ike doesn't like 'em. He can't stand the sort of fuzzy, leathery skin (same goes for peaches) so that' means more for moi. Once little O goes down for his afternoon snooze, I've been enjoying a tasty afternoon snack consisting of an apricot with a handful of raw almonds and a couple squares of Chocolove's Dark chocolate, almond and sea salt bar. Ooo la la. Those rich chocolate squares are so tasty and bonus - they're made an hour up the road from me, so it's my duty to partake frequently and support local business, no? 

Anyway, for another summer snack, I'd love to make the dried apricots dipped in chocolate and rolled in pistachios like the picture above but for now I've got to go change a diaper. 

Have a lovely weekend.
