I think this is the perfect beach dress! I liked it so much I sent it to my mom and sisters to purchase. The color combination is so bright and fun. I like the midi length and I do not mind a little sleeve on a lightweight dress. I can easily see using this dress for dinner on our summer vacation.


This is such an adorable book. I am an avid reader and bakery so this book was meant for me! Even though I am not a huge romance fan I like Jenny Colgan’s light hearted reads. I also am obsessed with traveling to Scotland these days so the amazing descriptions of this tiny Scottish island really make me smile. If you are looking for a quick light beach read this is the book for you!


I recently saw another Blogger’s (MaryandCrew) photos from her vacation to Gasparilla Inn and now I am hooked. I love a beautiful resort but to top it off this is a historic inn which gives it even more character. My husband and I have visited Boca Grande before but we did not stay here. The beaches here are gorgeous! We went to a public beach while in Boca Grande that was small and private. It was amazing!


I have made this Fruit Tart from Sally’ Baking Addiction so many times and it gets better with each try! Not only is this delicious but it is a pretty healthy dessert. When I make the recipe I do not use as many dates I probably only use about 12. Depending on who I am making the dessert for I will change up the fruit toppings. My kids are not big fans of Kiwi so I go heaven on the berries for them. I have also made this for breakfast when I have guest who I know are watching what they eat. I would definitely recommend this recipe to everyone!


These planters are so adorable! I like that they look like a basket but are cement. They will definitely hold up well outside. I am going to get two of the largest size planters for my side yard. I have some ferns that need planters so I think these will work perfect. I also saw a similar version of these on Amazon.

I hope you enjoyed my weekly picks! Have a great weekend!
