Social Fresh West Conference Review This past week BusyBeeBlogger.com was able to attend one of the top Social Media conferences, and it was right in my Southern California backyard.

New Thanksgiving Recipe: CHIPOTLE CARROT SALAD

New Thanksgiving Recipes There is nothing more predictable than Thanksgiving dinner.  Though very tasty it is usually this: turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and gravy.  Add in some green beans if you’re feeling festive.  But why not add something new to the Thanksgiving dinner?  This chipotle carrot salad recipe would also be a great addition onto the table for Thanksgiving.  The usually starch heavy Thanksgiving dinner can use a little more vegetable recipes if you ask me. While there is nothing on the table I don’t like during...

Do You Have Questions About Going Solar For Your Home?

Living in southern California there are a few things that are ubiquitous: flip flops, yoga pants, eating dinner outside all year long, and all of your neighbors getting solar panels on their roofs. It is almost as if we all got a memo at the same time that we should put some solar panels on our roofs, and now that I have my own home, it is on my to-do list. But is it really worth it? Do you have questions about installing solar panels? Find out more about Sunrun solar service and a special offer just for Busy Bee Blogger readers after the...

What’s The Hottest Trend In Jewelry? Just Ask Beyoncé

What’s The Hottest Trend In Jewelry?  Just Ask Beyoncé

It looks like flash tattoos, what I thought was going to be a flash in the pan (unintentional but I’m keeping the pun) of accessories, is now THE accessory to have. Even Beyoncé was wearing them in her now infamous “thigh gap” photo (above) while on her birthday vacation. She is decked out head to toe in these gold and silver stick on Metallic Jewelry Temporary Tattoos. I do really like this trend, but I was not sure it was going to take off when I first saw it early in the summer. One of my favorite things about it is that...

Summer Doesn’t Have To End – Colorful Linens Set The Table

    I know that people in Southern California try to tell the rest of the country that we do indeed have seasons, but truth is it’s usually a mix of sprint and summer around here. This even lends itself to our home and kitchens. Bright beautiful colors are common, especially on our tables. I am absolutely IN LOVE with these linens I just got from Hen House Linens. Summer does not have to end with these on your table. These would be DARLING for a weekend girls’ night get together, a shower (bridal or baby), or just a casual lunch...

Gorgonzola Blue Cheese Burger Recipe – Celebrate National Cheeseburger Day!

There are few things that are as satisfying to eat as a good burger. It may sound simple, a good patty with cheese on a bun. Oh. Yeah. The best thing is that you can dress it up fancy with any cheese you like, any number of cheeses you want, and the toppings can be simple (just ketchup please) or over the top (avocado, sriracha and garlic aoli hmmmm ok!). To help celebrate National Cheeseburger Day, September 18th (put it on your calendar for next year why don’t ya), I have an awesome STUFFED cheeseburger recipe. No need to worry about...

Southern California Delicious Sweet Treat – B Toffee

Southern California Delicious Sweet Treat – B Toffee

Southern California is full of inventive food. B. toffee out of Newport Beach (that is between San Diego and Los Angeles for those not from here) has developed their own twist on the classic toffee topped with chocolate and nuts. This artisan toffee company has taken all the good things about toffee, the rich buttery flavor with the nuts and chocolate topping and gotten rid of the part I can do without: the hard to chew consistency. I do not want to be afraid that I am going to break a tooth from eating my toffee. (Don’t laugh too hard,...
