Color Your World

I live, work and dream in color. I exist and grow in rainbows. 

I am inspired by color, by vibrancy in the world, radiant energies, passionate people.

I am constantly in a state of bewilderment as I look around. I look in gratitude of course but also in awe of how and why people don't encourage each other to shine their light as bright as they can. I am astonished at why more people don't help each other grow and express their unique color pallet. I for one am so exhausted seeing every ones public armor painted and camouflaged beige.

Shoe Story: 
SJP Collection FAWN in Ochre and Pink Satin. Also "Louise" in Blue Satin.

I chose to use images of my favorite colorful shoes to illustrate my point. I am not paid, thanked, compensated, treated or encouraged to promote this shoe collection, this candy or anything I share in my physical or digital life. I share what I love for the sake of sharing it. I expose the world of my unique colors in hopes it will inspire you to do the same. It doesn't have to take the form of social media over sharing, but just authenticity to every person that you encounter. You are amazing and the world needs exactly who you are in this moment, colors, flaws and all.

GOT Dinner For Two

GOT had to be the most used hashtag and/or acronym last night on social media. The highly anticipated  7th season of HBO's Game Of Thrones premiered to an astounding viewership record for HBO of 16.1 million according to entertainment weekly. 

My husband and I are fans of the show. You may remember our Game of Thrones themes Christmas Card. Read The Blog Here.

I created a GOT themed dinner for my husband and I, fit for a lord and his lady.


Riverrunn: House Tully Fish Taco's
Chips and Sansa
The Wall of Cheese Plate
Baked BriENNE of Tarth served with green apples
Castle Black Forest Cake
Red Wedding Velvet Cake

 This was the first time I made fish taco's at home. I made the chipotle sauce from scratch using the following easy recipe

1 cup Mayonnaise
2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
1 Tbsp of honey
Juice of 1 lime
Pinch of salt
2 canned chipotle chilies in adoobo

The tacos were small flour tortilla's, cod, shaved cabbage and home made Pico de Gallo.

I printed House Tully and House Lannister flags and attached them to the large skewers I use for my chocolate candied apples. 

This was one of the best Cab's I've ever had, well worth the price point of almost $50 USD. They have a lower priced red blend and a chardonnay for $20 (also available in Canada)

I loved themed dinners and parties. Did you host or create a themed Game of Thrones dinner.
