Life and Times

Floppy Hat

It's been a while since I did a Life and Times update, so I decided to shake things up a little bit. I want to get better at writing more personal blogs so I'm giving myself a few prompts to break me in gently. Haha. Eating: Key Lime Pie and Coconut Creme macarons from Sucré. The upside of one of … [continue]

Recipe: Healthy Cherry Limeade

Cherry Limeade

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, or over on the Glitter In The Quarter Facebook page then you’ll know that I recently made a super awesome purchase. I finally bought a blender!! And not just any blender, a Ninja! Y’all have no idea how excited I’ve been over the last few days to […]


Pick and Mix

Mason Jar Soap Dispenser - MidwestFinds

The weather has been so changeable in New Orleans in the last few weeks. It seems like we had thunderstorms here for a two weeks straight, and now it’s back to being HOT. The dogs are down to very short walks in the shade and sitting the balcony under a big umbrella. If I was a […]


Sewing Patches – Tips and Tricks

TxC - Supplies

A few months ago I bought a black denim jacket for the sole purpose of putting patches on it. I have a Dickies jacket at home that has some patches on it too, and I kinda miss it. Last week I finally got around to ordering some patches from Team Cotton, a super rad clothing line […]


Sing Along – Marry The Night by Glee feat. Adam Lambert

Adam Lambert Glee

Did you know that Fox lets you share videos from their website? Yeah, me neither! I just spent 20 minutes trawling YouTube for an actual video and not someone recording their television with their phone, and then ended up finding this on Fox’s website. Whaddya know… I’ve been on a Glee binge this week. Usually when […]


Product Review: Coconut + PB Barnana Bites

New Banana Bite Flavours

I got a super awesome email from Barnana last week, asking me if I wanted to review their new flavours. I’ll be honest, I didn’t know they were launching new flavours, so hearing that was exciting enough! Just a few days later a package arrived, containing a bag each of the new offerings. Would you […]


Pick and Mix

Gold Foil Lighning Bolts - Schwings

We had a crazy lightning storm appear out of nowhere earlier today, so this edition of Pick and Mix is storm-themed! Confession: I’m really not all that fond of thunder storms. Something about the sudden, unpredictable loud noises doesn’t seem to sit right with me. Meh. I do love how pretty lightning is though. I need this […]


Zucchini Spaghetti + Product Review

Spiral Slicer Process

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. First up, it’s not a zucchini. It’s a courgette. But for the sake of SEO and my American readers I’m using Zucchini in the title. From here on out, we’ll be referring to it as a courgette. Because that’s what it is. Second, I’m a […]


Target T-Shirt Cutting Tutorial

FSAS Phases

A few weeks ago I found this shirt at Target. I needed it, and I wanted it in every colour they sold. But I begrudged paying $14.99 for a shirt that I could whip up myself for a lot less. So I bought the colour I liked best and set about plotting how to recreate […]


Sing Along – Collide by Howie Day

Hands up, who has Pandora? Up until a few months ago I was not at all on the Pandora bandwagon, (pun intended) and I’m still not entirely sure I understand or agree with their royalty payments. I do, however, like the way it introduces you to artists you might not know or reminds you of […]
