DIY African Print Maxi Dress

I love my vintage Sears lounging dress so much that I had to duplicate it. I made a simple maxi dress that's perfect for the heat.  It comes together super fast too. In fact, I made two. One for me and wee one for Violet. Violet's has my favorite side split and ties at each shoulder. Mine has pockets, ties at the back and a super wide flow.

Pretty in Pink Day Dress and Mules

I feel like I should be shaking up martinis to present to my husband after a hard day in this dress. It's home sewn so I can't tell what year it's from but the style is reminiscent of 50s day dresses. It was a surprising thrift store find.

Dragon Fruit Superfood Sorbet

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Rubbermaid®.

Maintaining after weight loss is very much an ongoing challenge. I still have those same desires for decadent desserts and other fat snacks. It's especially difficult when summer rolls around and there are parties with barbecues, cocktails, and lots of ice cream to consume. I made homemade dragon fruit sorbet to help curb those desires.

One of my weight loss tips is to binge smart. I don't deny myself all the treats. I've learned to balance them and when I feel the need to overindulge, I make sure there's a healthy snack to binge on.
