You will be so pleased to know you can get coffee shop style drinks, right at home! You do not need any fancy equipment, which I absolutely LOVE!!! I have been wondering how in the world to make something like this at home for quite some time now, and when the opportunity came around for me to try out these new International Delight® One-Touch Latte™, I was eager to try it for myself - and from word of mouth, several of my friends and family members ran out to get some for themselves.

Simply use this new frothing coffee creamer from International Delight®, and you have a latte, in seconds. Wow, this tastes absolutely delightful! I cannot believe my tastebuds, I actually had to make myself a second cup! YUM!!!

You deserve something as tasty as this, you hard-working Wonder Woman, you!

I created a graphic to show you the three step process, and how cool it is. My eyes lit up when I made my first cup of coffee, then added the One Touch Latte™ to my glass. It’s super neat, and sprays out with a lot of force to create froth and tasty, creamy, yummy flavors of either Vanilla, Caramel, or Mocha. I had to get all three flavors, and Vanilla seems to be my favorite among my friends and I. Here is a video, to show you how fun and easy these are to use at home, making mornings and afternoons WAY more fun.

Yummy Lattes

It sweetens, it creams, it flavors, ... IT FROTHS! FOR REAL. Just shake it, press, and—ta da!—it transforms your everyday coffee into a foam-topped latte! In 3 simple steps, you have a coffeehouse-style latte in seconds.

Just point and press to transform your home-brewed coffee. Now you can start every morning with a creamy, flavorful latte made by your favorite barista–you! Available in Vanilla, Caramel and Mocha.

STEPS INCLUDE:

Step 1: Fill cup 2/3 with coffee to leave room for froth.

Step 2: Shake the One Touch Latte™ can.

Step 3: Press and hold the can above coffee for 5-7 seconds and enjoy!

I found these products at Walmart in the refrigerated section of the store near where I normally find my other favorite coffee creamers from International Delight®.

Yay! I was so happy to find all three flavors at my local Walmart. Always fun when that happens.

Pinterest Party Inspirations ~ Mermaid Life Party

Vacationing here in Florida makes me appreciate Mermaid Life so much! It's so nice being near the ocean, coral reefs, lots of beautiful boats, and imagining what a mermaid would want for her party :) So, I found some amazing ideas on Pinterest that would work for a woman or girl or just about any age, to help inspire her next party, whether it be a birthday, graduation, retirement, or just about any excuse to get together with friends and celebrate the mermaid life. Click on the photos of links throughout the post to visit the sources, and of course gain even more inspiration.

1.) The Cutest Mermaid Party Award definitely goes to Garvin & Co, for her daughter's Mermaid Inspired Party! Read the whole post here, and be amazed at how much attention she pays to every little detail, from party tablescape, to balloon backdrop, mermaid costumes, and of course, the cutest Mermaid food EVER! I love her whole blog, actually, it's so inspiring - her life looks like so much fun! Also, check out her stunning Instagram page for lots of lifestyle photos that are out of this world beautiful. 

2.) Use Madeline Molds To Make Popsicles! (found on Pinterest here). You could of course go with more tropical themed flavors, like pineapple, mango, coconut, and anything else your heart desires! In fact, you could even make these vegan by using a base of coconut milk, or simply puree fruit, add lemon juice and simple syrup, and freeze them. If you're looking for lots of popsicle recipes, I have a whole Pinterest Board dedicated to Popsicle Recipes, containing over 450 recipes

3.) DIY Mermaid Salt Scrub Party Favors - these salt scrubs are everywhere here in the Florida Keys. They're reminiscent of the salty sea, and can be made in a variety of beautiful, pastel, sea-inspired colors. They would also make amazing party favors for your beautiful mermaid attendees! Here is one idea, below, from Love Vividly (another incredibly adorable blog), which would leave your skin feeling as soft and as smooth as a mermaid! Aren't the colors incredibly perfect?

4.) I also thought that this DIY Mermaid Crown would be fun to create as a party activity! Learn how to Turn A Dollar Store Crown Into A Mermaid Tiara!!! You can simply embellish those dollar store crowns with starfish, seashells, slitter, paint, vintage jewelry, glitter, and shimmery paints. 

5.) Oh my goodness, this jellyfish decor is the best thing ever! While the exact instructions are not given in the post, I would imagine you could start with a paper lantern, paint it teal/aqua, cover it with tulle, then hang coordinating ribbons, yarns, and tinsel from the bottom to create the jellyfish tendrils. They created three colors like lilac purple, pale blue, and aqua.  

And, this name sign is amazing! Start with those paper mache letters, paint them a sea themed color, add glitter (of course), and adorn with some shells and netting. Too cute!

6.) Mermaid Desserts! With a little bit of imagination, you can take almost all of your desserts into the Mermaid Life theme! Below, Sweets With Love shares her photo of these little mermaid tail and seashell topped cookies or donuts! You could use candy molds to create the shapes, then paint them with edible colors in pastels and shimmery gold. Include some edible glitter too, why not?!

7.) Another featured party that would make any mermaid happy would be this one, also featured here, that uses shades of coral, aqua, and sunshine yellow. Each and every details is absolutely perfect, right down to the gold sequin table cloth and shimmering cake pop sticks. 

And, these candies are perfect!

8.) This Barbie Mermaid themed party, from TomKatStudios is beyond amazing! These cute Oyster Pearl Cookies are perfect. The pearl portion could be a gumball, and finding some shell cookie cutters would be easy, too.

Hopefully these ideas have inspired you to create or host a Mermaid Party of your own! Enjoy :)

Best Bully Sticks - We Love These Dog Chews

Our two dogs are the most important aspects of our lives. We spend what seems like every waking hour keeping them happy and entertained (let me just say, they're lucky we both work from home!!). So, when BestBullySticks.com reached out to ask if we could share a review of their products AND a giveaway to one lucky reader, we were more than happy to test out some of these bully sticks and other goodies from their website. My pups were ecstatic when our package arrived via UPS from BestBullySticks.com. Even though these treats are packaged extremely well, the dogs seemed to know the package was for them. Porter was first to notice, so she was eager and more than happy to jump onto the couch and pose for a photo with her new delivery. 

Best Bully Sticks!

When we received a big box of bully goodness from their website, and it kept our pups happy for quite a while. Since our (now 7 month old) Chocolate Labradoodle puppy and our Chocolate Lab are big chewers, and since we also love finding any chew or treat that will keep them happy for longer than literally one second, we find that Bully Sticks are some of their favorites. We tend to like them better than traditional rawhides, because rawhides are known to be bad for their digestion, so when we get the chance to give them Bully Sticks, we are all for it. I also can't believe how low the prices are from BestBullySticks.com, so if you're looking for a WAY better priced alternative to every pet store ever, look no further. 

Next, Cabbie, our Chocolate Lab took notice. She made sure she was involved in the "unboxxing" process, because she also new there was something good inside.

Once I opened the box from BestBullySticks.com, the dogs jumped up and wanted to know exactly what was inside. My goodness, they were excited!

Best Bully Sticks!

Porter's attention span is pretty short since she is still just 7 months old, but Cabbie sat pretty to model the delicacies that she knew would soon be hers. She is such a good girl, I am SO lucky she behaves so well. 

Best Bully Sticks!

I was astounded and thrilled to see just how many amazing products they sent us! Here is a list of what was inside our box:

6 inch odor free bully sticks

12 inch odor free bully sticks

Bully Flakes

Beef trachea grab bag

Best Bully Sticks!

First, I started with the 6 inch bully sticks, and they are truly very low odor. If you opt for odor free bully sticks, the dogs still go bonkers for them, but they make your experience a lot less stinky, let me tell you! These are vey high quality bully sticks, and we thank BestBullySticks.com SO VERY MUCH for sending such amazing treats for the babies! We will be putting in a big order again very soon, because bully sticks are literally the only thing that keeps the pups (especially Porter) happy for an extended period of time. 

Best Bully Sticks!

Even Bobby's mom's Double Dapple Doxie loved her 6 inch chew. It kept her occupied for quite some time!

YUM!!! We love our treats from BestBullySticks.com! Thank you so much :)
