A hint of mint, a bit of basil

I'm not big on burning candles in the summer.  It's just too hot.  But every now and then you need a scented candle to freshen up the kitchen after a particularly "fragrant" meal - but the problem is most candles are just too much for summer - too fruity, too spicy, too flowery... just too much.  This week I was at Target and found the perfect summer scented candle ~ Mint Basil.  The scent is fresh, simply fresh, and the clean, crisp, unfussy jar perfectly complements the scent.

White Peach / Red Mango

We stopped in at Red Mango last night after the band concert.  One of their featured flavors was White Peach.  I was speechless.  Tthe best tasting fresh peach flavor ever!  Topped with some fresh strawberries and blueberries - what a refreshing dessert.  Mmmm.....

Long & Lean Reign Supreme

This Pearl comes from my friend Andria.  She tipped me off to these jeans last year and they have been my favorites ever since!  Long & Lean Jeans by Gap.  What's so amazing, is that these jeans are perfect for both of us, and Andria and I are total opposites when it comes to body shape and size.  The second most amazing thing is the price - $59.50-$69.50 depending on the wash, but with Gap's frequent sales and promotions, I've never paid more than $40.  Much better than the popular designer jeans!  Most days you will find me in one of my pairs of Long & Leans... they are just that good.
