Homemade Watermelon Pops

Summer is officially upon us which makes this tasty snack perfect for the season. Why buy artificially flavored popsicles at the store when you can make your very own healthy treats at home?
Simply take 2 cups of watermelon. Cube them and remove the seeds. Blend with 1 cup apple juice until smooth and pour this lovely pink mixture into popsicle molds. Freeze and enjoy!

DIY: 4th of July Denim Cuffs

Summer is officially upon us tomorrow, so I thought I'd share this awesome tutorial that is perfect for this time of year.
You'll need a pair of jeans, preferably in a boyfriend cut. Just make sure they aren't so tight that you can't cuff the bottoms.  You'll also need an American flag or any fabric with the beloved stars and stripes (ie. t-shirt).  Get your needle, thread and safety pins.

Turn your jeans inside out and secure the fabric from the bottom going up to the mid-calf area with safety pins. Sew and then remove the safety pins.

You can use this method for jazzing up your jeans with any pattern/colored fabric you choose. I love how there is stripes on one leg and stars on the other. It's up to you.

Enjoy your super patriotic jeans :)

Meatless Monday: Carrot and Ginger Juice Recipe

Perfect for Summer, this juice recipe is nutritious and delicious !
* 1 bunch carrots
* 4 oranges (Navel, Blood, Valencia, etc.)
* 1 ginger root (about the size of your palm)
Rinse the dirt off the carrots. Remove green tops. You can chop them to assist your juicer. There's no need to peel the carrots. Using a serrated knife, cut all of the rind off the oranges and separate to fit through the juicer. Break or cut apart the ginger. Run all of your ingredients through the juicer and mix. If you find the juice to be too spicy from the ginger, add another orange or water to dilute it.

Bon appetit!
