Low-Cal Lemon Drop Martini Recipe

This week I made a super awesome Sweet’N Low Low-Cal Lemon Drop Martini as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. Big thanks to them for allowing me to a part of the #SweetNLowStars – hope you enjoy!

I’ve been posting a few back to school giveaway posts this week. And I know a ton of other bloggy moms around the country who have kids going back to school in the next week. But – here in Central Washington, we’re still in the upper 90′s to 100′s, and have almost a month left of summer vacation left. Which means, I’m still in a summer state of mind :) We just got back from an awesome camping trip at Rimrock Lake {have you seen the pics on Instagram? It was so gorgeous.} And I just can’t feel the whole fall mindset yet. Which is why I’m still in the mood for light, simple, and easy food and drink recipes. Check out a new fave of mine – it’s even low-cal. Which is mucho important when it’s still swimsuit season here.

This Will Change How You Take Photos from Your Phone Forever

Big thank you to the Best Buy WOLF Blogging Network and the peeps at Sony for giving me the chance to try out the new lens style camera, the Sony QX10, and share the awesomeness with you! I received a complimentary product, but you know my opinions are my own, as always.

There are a few things that describe me well: Social media junkie. Photo addict. Tech lover. Memory capturer. Which is why I’ve always loved photography. Sure, I’m no pro – although I did take a few years of photography back in high school. Back when we had this weird stuff called film in our SLR cameras. {Notice the lack of a D at the beginning of that?} We developed our own film in darkrooms. Printed our own photos too, testing out different exposure settings. Do I sound old yet? :) But obviously these days photography has changed – drastically – in just the {let’s just say “slightly over”} 10 years I’ve been out of high school. Not only do we have DSLRs, smart phones, awesome point and shoot options, and more – but now, there’s a totally awesome new way to take pics. It’ll blow your mind. Check it out….

I love tech gadgets, but I’m not the most “technical” type of person. I don’t pay as much attention to things like megapixels and stuff, as I do to how the product actually works in my real life. So, for the details, you can check out the Sony QX10 at BestBuy.com. But I want to show you how this will totally change how you take photos – from your phone, or anywhere – forever. [Read more...]
