Ward Off Negative Thoughts And Wear Something Pretty

Bauble Bar Evil Eye emerald

Things have been going well for this Southern California pinup. So good, in fact, that I have started to get worried. I am a little concerned that people might be getting a little envious and start hoping for something bad to happen. Not YOU my sweet bees, but you know those people.

In order to lift my spirits a little bit, and to hopefully ward off negative intentions, I got myself an Evil Eye bracelet from BaubleBar. It’s a little bit of spiritual protection, a little bit pretty, and all good with whatever I wear during the day.

Do you wear anything to help keep you safe, or to remember it is all going to be ok?

Grab Your Dipping Forks, Today Is National Cheese Fondue Day!

Oh goodness today is my lucky day!  A day that celebrates CHEESE FONDUE!  April 11th is National Cheese Fondue Day, a time to fire up the fondue pots for food, fun and good conversation.  You all should know this southern California pinup’s absolute love (obsession) with cheese.  Add  in a fun dinner where you get to share the experience of eating together and I am completely sold.

I remember eating fondue when I was little, and I have my own fondue pot now that I break out for fun dinners with friends, or a romantic dinner with someone special.   A chance to enjoy the wonderful-ness of cheese, and having to get in and really share your dining experience with people is my idea of a great meal.

To celebrate, Emmi Roth USA, the US division of the premier Swiss dairy company, is sharing the must-know fon-DO’s of fondue – everything from tips for when you dip to the new ways to do fondue.
