Favorite Pin Friday | Volume 19

For the last few weeks I’ve avoided the kitchen. I know, what’s wrong with me!? I think the Texas heat plus the lack of interest in food won, but I am happy to report I have rediscovered this room again!

This week I’ve been busy in the kitchen. My latest goal is to add more vegetables to every dish. Doesn’t hurt to sneak a few in here and there. A food processor is your best friend đŸ˜‰ Today I’m sharing a pie recipe that requires no cooking. Glorious, another easy dessert recipe!

Another obsession of mine (besides black and white everything!) is peanut butter. So today is a Peanut Butter Pie from Thank goodness for Pinterest because my mom used to make this pie for me all the time, but I’ve misplaced the recipe. The one I’m sharing is pretty close.

The original recipe is for 2 pies, but I’m giving instructions for 1.

1/2 8oz package of cream cheese
3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup milk
8oz package frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 9-inch prepared graham cracker crust

  1. Beat together cream cheese and confectioners’ sugar. Mix in peanut butter and milk. Beat until smooth. Fold in whipped topping.
  2. Spoon into pie shell, cover and freeze until firm.

I try to make this pie 1 day in advance so it can stay in the freezer overnight. Let it thaw just a little before serving so it’s cold and creamy. Great summer dessert.

Until next post…xoxo Becca

Recent Purchases

Hello and welcome to a new week! Hope you enjoyed the weekend. Today I’m reviewing a couple of my recent purchases.


I bought this shirt on sale at Loft a few weeks ago and can’t stop wearing it! It’s nice as a tank for these hot summer days or wearing to work under a cardigan or jacket. Only a few sizes left, snag one while you can.


Also bought this at Loft. Haven’t had a chance to wear it yet, but the structure is nice if you’re a pencil skirt lover like I am. I picked this skirt because I had seen it featured on Extra Petite last year in gray. The fabric is thick, but light enough for summer and I love the fact that it has pockets. The waist is a little large on me, but I also have a tiny waist compared to my hips. A little alteration and it will fit perfect! Can’t wait to style it and feature it soon.


I picked up this product two weeks ago (mentioned here) and have been using it twice a day. I wanted to give you a review in case you were hoping I’d write one.

The idea behind Lush Cosmetics is making good products using fresh and organic ingredients, use little or no preservatives, and they list all the ingredients used on their packaging. There is a lot more about their beliefs on the website. All in all I think this is a great idea. With some products you have no clue what you’re putting on your body.

I picked Skin Drink because I wanted to try a new moisturizer. I had been using Origins GinZing and like it, but thought trying something else may be even more effective with my dry skin. See my skincare routine here. This product definitely makes my skin feel soft and smooth. If you have a sensitive nose this isn’t the product for you. It’s very “earthy” and something makes me wonder why am I slathering this on my face if it doesn’t smell good, but it works well! I use it at night and put it on under my foundation in the morning. All day my skin feels hydrated, but not greasy. I look forward to giving my skin a nice “drink” at the end of the day. Heck, I like a drink at the end of the day, but that’s beside the point. I would recommend this product! 

What products or clothes have you bought recently you’d recommend?

Until next post…xoxo Becca
