My "Friday" Favs

Happy "Friday"! Since today is my "Friday", and I'm off to Key West tomorrow with Pamela and Kerri I thought I'd share my favorites from this week today.

I ordered personalized koozies for us to enjoy on our vacation, and for great memories afterwards. I was so excited with how awesome they turned out, and how quickly the seller turned them around. If you're looking for personalized koozies I highly recommend PureSerenityBoutique on Etsy.
I've raved a lot on here about how I have the best neighbors, well with the best neighbors comes the best neighborhood doggies. Apollo is always so excited when I come by to visit, and who could resist that sweet face?
One of my favorite parts about going on vacation is getting pampered beforehand. I went for a relaxing pedicure on Tuesday, and bumped into Emily who was also there getting pretty for her Vegas trip.
I finally upgraded to an iPhone6 this week, and couldn't be more excited about my pretty pineapple phone case. Love my pineapples!
I'm also excited for Helene's July Instagram Challenge. Her April challenge was a lot of fun, and I found several great new accounts to follow. So, I'm looking forward to seeing all the great pics for July's challenge. Today's prompt is Up, Up, and Away - come join the fun on Instagram with the hashtag #31PhotosInBetween.

Hope everyone has a safe and fun holiday weekend! You can follow me along this weekend on:

4th of July Weekend in Key West

Happy 1st day of July! How is 2015 officially half over already?! I couldn't be more excited that 4th of July weekend is here, but after that can time slow down just a tad? Please and thank you.
4th of July in Key West

On Friday, I'll be packing up the car and heading down to Key West with Kerri and Pamela for a fun-filled holiday weekend. I can't wait to lay on the beach, spend a day on a boat, grill out, and watch the fireworks over the water. I plan on living in a bathing suit most of the weekend, and creating fun memories with two of my new favs! 

What are your fun holiday weekend plans?

Chile Rellenos Casserole

One of my favorite ingredients to add to a home cooked meal is diced chiles as I love the extra flavor they add to savory dishes. I found this recipe on Pinterest *of course* and knew it was something I couldn't wait to recreate.


1 lb. of extra lean ground turkey
1/4 onion, diced
2 cans of diced green chiles
1 and 1/2 cups of reduced fat cheddar cheese
2 eggs
3/4 cup of skim milk
1/8 cup of flour
1 tsp. of cumin
1/2 tsp. of pepper


Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Cook ground turkey and onion until the meat is fully cooked
Spray casserole dish with non-stick spray
Line the bottom of the dish with chiles
Layer the cooked meat and onion on top of the chiles, and top with cheese
In a medium bowl, whisk together milk and eggs, then add the flour, cumin, and pepper and mix well.
Pour milk mixture over the casserole, and bake for 35-40 minutes at 375 degrees

Last Weekending of June

I can't believe this was the last weekend in June! How is time flying by so fast? Since this is my favorite time of year, I'd love for it to slow down just a bit please and thank you. Everyone's all excited about summer right now, but I give it just a few weeks before everyone starts talking about fall. Please no! Enjoy what you have while you have it.
Friday, Coca Cola was outside my job where you could get 2 personalized soda cans. Since I can never find my name spelled out correctly, it was fun to see it printed out on a coke can.
Saturday was all about pool time after a great bike ride. I started off at home, and then moved over to a friend's pool for the rest of the day. Oh and of course new bathing suit pieces from Target. Because they win all the prizes this year!
Sunday was the perfect Sunday-Funday celebrating Pamela's birthday on a cycling pub crawl -!

Happy Friday! Another great week is behind us, and I'm excited for all the fun ahead this weekend including celebrating the fabulous Pamela's birthday!

Favorite Surprise - Bath and Body Works re-grammed my photo from my semi-annual sale haul, and it totally made my day! So many sweet words from fellow shoppers, plus it sent a ton of traffic my way. Win-win! Don't forget to share your semi-annual sale hauls on Instagram with the hashtag #weLOVEsale and follow me along this weekend @GreenFashionista.
Favorite Lunch - I love going outside during lunch, and knocking out some more chapters in The Girl on the Train. I'm almost finished, and I'm bursting to find out what happens!

Introstem Luxury Skincare

Happy Friday Eve! It's officially summertime which happens to be my favorite time of year (sorry if I'm starting to sound like a broken record), but all that extra fun in the sun means we need to take better care of our skin.
I was excited when a representative from Introstem reached out to me to try out some of their products. Introstem is advanced skin technology and a new luxury skincare line infused with plant-based stem cells. 
Stem Cell Vibrant Day Moisturizer
- I apply this moisturizer in the morning before my daily makeup routine. It not only moisturizes, but it also smooths out my skin and provides a great base to apply my usual makeup for the day. My face feels softer and it looks more refreshed than any other moisturizer I've used in the past.
Stem Cell Energizing Mask
- This mask is infused with Vitamins A, C, and E and it really gives your skin that extra oomph and glow that we all are looking for. I love the way my skin feels after applying this mask, perfect after a long day/night.
Stem Cell Dark Circle Eye Cream
- This one has by far been my favorite out of the line as I suffer from hereditary dark circles under my eyes no matter how well rested I am (thanks mom!). I apply a little around each eye every night, and each morning I can tell that the area around my eye is a little brighter.
Stem Cell Defining Eye Serum
- Now that I'm in my 30's those pesky wrinkles are starting to show up, and this is the first product that promises to help minimize the appearance of wrinkles that creep up on the delicate skin around your eyes that actually works. I've noticed an improvement in my "wisdom" around my eyes since using this serum which is great!
Stem Cell Night Rejuvenation Serum
- I love applying this product at night, as my skin looks and feels more refreshed each morning. Even if I had a rough night's sleep you can no longer tell by my skin.

**This was a sponsored post for which I was sent products to test out, but all opinions are my own**

I was tagged by the beautiful Amanda to join in the fun of listing 10 things I love and 10 things I hate, and at the end tag 10 more bloggers to play along. And since I love making lists, leeeeets go!

1. The summertime - I love everything about it. The warmth, swimming, beach and boat days, sundresses, grilling and eating outdoors, going out for ice cream, longer days, my list could go on and on...
2. My boys in pinstripes aka The New York Yankees. Don't hate! It's "in my blood" - my grandfathers, aunts, uncles, cousins, my dad, and my brother are all Yankees fans. It's what we do! And growing up an hour outside the city with easy access to the stadium was priceless.
3. A good sale - I never pay full price for anything!
4. The Olympics
5. Travel - trying to see as much of this big beautiful world as possible. I get way too excited when traveling to a new place.
6. Bulldogs - Roxy is the best duggy, and I'd love to have another English Bulldog and a Frenchie too.
7. Harry Potter - the books, the movies, The Wizarding World of HP at Universal.. love it all. I'm a full-blown Potterhead.
8. Luke Bryan - kick that dust up boy and shake it!
9. Guacamole - I could lop that good stuff onto just about anything. Ooooh and cake.... always cake!
10. Skinny Girl Margaritas - YUM!

1. The words "squat" or "smear" they both give me the heebie-jeevies.
2. Stress
3. Gossipers - some people thrive on gossip and drama. Ain't nobody got time for that!
4. Cancer
5. The cold - I hate it so much I moved away from it permanently. No more scraping car windshields, slipping on ice, shoveling snow, or sky high heating bills. It's for the birds!
6. Vomit - I have a ridiculous fear of it happening to me or those around me.
7. Laziness
8. Chipped nail polish
9. My adult acne - seriously it's time for you to hit the road Jack!
10. Fun outdoor plans that get rained out
