Celebrate World Coconut Day with these coconut flavored foods

Yesterday morning, I was alerted that tomorrow is World Coconut Day.  I ask it all of the time, but is there seriously a day for everything? Anyway, I figured that I would have a little fun with it and do a post all about my favorite coconut flavored foods. (Obviously, coconut oil, Grass Skirt Smoothies, and actual coconut are included as well.) 1. Dang Toasted Coconut Chips These make for a nice crunchy snack, and they are gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free, and a great source of fiber. 2. Artisana Organic Coconut Butter I love this as a...

54 Trader Joe’s items you must try

54 Trader Joe’s items you must try

Today’s post is inspired by one that I saw on Pop Sugar called The 39 Trader Joe’s Items You Need in Your Life.  As soon as I read the title, I quit reading. Why? Because I wanted to see how many items I could list without any influence from their list.  That way, my list would be truly authentic.  After coming up with my top items, I did finally go back and read the Pop Sugar version, and we actually had many of the same things in mind.  Those items must be extra good! I hope that this list is helpful to you if you are new to...

Hi! Remember me? It feels really good to sit down to blog this morning.  I have definitely missed it this past week or so.  But with preparing for a move, keeping my current house constantly show ready, being a full-time mommy (Is there any other kind?), and lots of fun social engagements, blogging kind of got pushed to the side. I do have a lot of fun posts planned for the next few weeks though, so I hope you’ll stick around- even if things are a little sporadic for awhile.  (Side note: I cannot hear the word “sporadic”...

Vitacost Haul & BIG Announcement

Vitacost Haul & BIG Announcement

I’ve been keeping a little secret for the past few months, but I am finally sharing it on The Mini Skirt today.  It is pretty big news in my world, and I am really excited to be able to tell you about it. Switching gears completely… I stocked up on some kid friendly snacks and beauty items through Vitacost this week, so while not as important as the news I just wrote about, it is still something fun to share. Alba Botanica Moisturizing Foam Shave in Mango Vanilla I have never used a foaming shave gel before, so I still have to...

Happy Friday! I hope that everyone had a wonderful week.  I’ve been really energized, and as a result, I have been writing and blogging up a storm.

Friday Favorites (6/5)

Friday Favorites (6/5)

Happy Friday! It has been pretty busy around here lately- all good things, including a new business opportunity that I cannot wait to tell you about- which is why I have been posting less frequently.  I hope to get back to a more predictable posting schedule within the next few weeks. Despite the craziness, I’ve managed to keep things interesting around here with some new (to me) discoveries. Enjoy!   Raw Taco Gorilla Wraps These wraps are one of Kimberly Snyder’s delicious creations.  They’ve also been my lunch...
