Prosecco and Popsicle Cocktails 2

Prosecco & Popsicle Cocktails

There's nothing better than a nice cold glass of bubbly on a hot day. Oh, wait. There is something better. Bubbly with a popsicle!

I was in New York recently and visited the Loopy Doopy Rooftop Bar where the specialty was a glass of prosecco with a homemade ice pop in it. They were deelish! I of course needed to recreate these beauties.

Now, I'm not the kind to make my own icepops but there are definitely some delicious, real fruit, popsicles out there that get the job done!

All you need is your favorite prosecco and a fruit flavored popsicle. Voila! You have yourself a delicious, ice cold cocktail that's too cute for words!

Summer Must Haves

Summer is my absolute favorite season. I love being in the sun, laying on the beach or by the pool, barbecuing with friends, and all of the other amazing things that come with this time of year.

So I thought it would be fun to do a round-up of all of the fun things that are a must have during those hot summer months! Cheers!

IT Cosmetics CC cream with SPF 50

IT Cosmetics CC Cream with SPF 50+ - $38

Also available on QVC often with a brush or in a two pack for an amazing deal!

This is my go-to foundation. I love that it goes on smooth, blends well with my skin, and stays on ALL. DAY. LONG. Plus it has SPF in it which is just a win-win for me! I'm always in the sun and I don't have to worry about putting some greasy sunscreen on my face.

Swell Bottle Bikini Pink

S'Well Bottle Bikini Pink - $25-$45

I LOVE this water bottle. I've been using it for a few months now and it works so well. It fits in my cup holder in the car and keeps my water nice and cold for a long time. I have both the medium and large and I love them. The...

Peach, Tomato, Burrata Salad with Homemade Croutons

family home life Jun 22, 2016

Summer is here and that means it's time for delicious summer food! This Peach, Tomato, Burrata Salad will leave you begging for more!

Now, if you know me at all you know that I do not like to cook. At all. My husband does most of the cooking around here {#blessed} and I ain't complaining about it one bit! But every once in a great while I get the urge to make something fantastic. And last night was one of those nights.

A couple of weeks ago we were at a friends house for a monthly dinner that she hosts. My friend Meredith goes out of her way when hosting. She makes THE MOST delicious food I've ever eaten. I mean. She even makes a burger bar into something magical. On this particular night she made the most amazing salad with peaches, tomatoes, burrata {if you haven't tried burrata then go buy some stat}, basil, and homemade croutons. It was to die for.

The original recipe can be found at Art de Fete but I did a little tweaking. I also used the Pioneer Woman's recipe for Homemade...

20 Books To Read This Spring

business faith home life Apr 06, 2016

 

20 Books to read this springI LOVE books! I love to read, I love to hold the book in my hands, I love to smell the pages, I love to dog-ear pages, I LOVE books! But I am super crappy about actually sitting down to read them and finish them. There are so many books I want to read and so little time to squeeze them in. So I've marked my planner with reading times and I'm trying my best to stick to them.

 

File Apr 04, 10 21 49 PM

I just finished reading The Husband's Secret. I pretty much love anything by Liane Moriarty. I read What Alice Forgot first. It was definitely my favorite of her books that I've read. It really made me think about the decisions I've made in my life and if I would be happy with who I am if I woke up and thought I was 10 years younger. I love the way Liane writes and intertwines social issues that most of us face but don't talk about. I really do feel like I know the characters in her books. Big Little Lies was great as well. Seriously. These books are keepers in my opinion and I'll probably read...

The World Needs Your Hustle Book and Poem

 

Today's post is brought to you by my friend, Kevin Buchanan. Kevin just launched his book, The World Needs Your Hustle, and he's offering my readers a special deal. Get free shipping with code COCO at checkout. Plus you can get that awesome print of the poem Kevin wrote at a special price when you order it along with the book.

Here's a note from Kevin:

If you have a goal or dream you are pursuing in life you probably understand this scenario. Day one is awesome and full of excitement! Yay goals! Day two is okay but no one told you there would be actual work involved. And by day three you have lost all motivation, convinced yourself you will try again next year, and are back on the couch enjoying your latest Netflix binge.

If this is you, I get it. I’ve been there. We all have. What I have learned over the years is that too many of our goals never reach the finish line because we forget about one little word - the WHY. There is a reason why we should pursue goals and...

Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids - Review

Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids

I was recently given the opportunity to review Jesus Today : Devotions for Kids by Sarah Young. Of course I jumped at the chance because I love Jesus Calling and Jesus Calling for Kids.

Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids

I had been wanting some sort of devotional for my 10 year old and this was just perfect! The simple layout and bright colors keep him engaged and he didn't even argue when I asked him to read it. He actually loved it and continues to read it every day without me asking. {YAY!}

What I love about this version of Jesus Calling is that the devotions are short and sweet and still filled with truth that will leave an impact. My 10 year old has a pretty short attention span so these are perfect for him. He gets a daily message of hope with scripture to back it up. I really couldn't be happier.

If you're looking for a devotional for your 6-10 year old, this is perfect!

Jesus is the Friend who is always with you.  Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids will pour this powerful truth...

One Word 2016: Discipline

faith life Feb 01, 2016

oneword discipline

It's February 1st and I'm finally sitting down to write my one word and some dreams and goals for the year. And you know what, I'm totally okay with that. Sure, most of you did this a month ago, but not me. One month ago I was sitting on a white sand beach in Turks and Caicos without a care in the world. The thought crossed my mind several times but I really just wanted to enjoy my vacation to the fullest and not work. It was the first vacation I've taken in years without feeling like I "needed" to get something done. And wouldn't you know, the world kept spinning!

When we returned from our dream vacation (thanks to my parents and grandparents) it was time to jump back into life. School, laundry, cleaning, orders, designing, the list goes on. Then hubby and I celebrated our 19th anniversary with a little getaway to Laguna beach. Next thing you know, it's February!

So February is my January and I really am super excited about it. In fact, I think I might do this from now on. January...

How many days till summer?

Uncategorized Sep 17, 2015

kids beach

Where did the summer go? I mean. I'm a fan of getting back in to the school groove, having some routine, and pretending it's fall {because SoCal} but really? I want summer back already! I want to sleep in and watch T.V. with the kids, head to the beach whenever we feel like it, stay up way too late in the warm summer air.

Maybe I'm feeling an intense dose of summer-nostalgia because we had such an amazing one. In the midst of filling and shipping thousands of orders, we managed to have quite a bit of fun.

I don't want to bore you with all of the details but I must brag a little on all the fun we had.

ryan corie

We started our summer celebrating my amazing hubby's FORTIETH birthday. What?? I surprised him with a little getaway to the most fabulous little hotel in Manhattan Beach. If you're looking for a romantic seaside getaway, check out Shade. Also. If you want major points with the hubs, surprise him with a U2 concert. No words. Mine won't be good enough for that experience.

Fangirl : a girl or woman who is an extremely or overly enthusiastic fan of someone or something

We've all been there. We #fangirl over celebrities all the time. Especially "Christian Celebrities." Most of the time these poor women haven't even asked for this. They're just doing their thing and their space is growing and all of us mature little Christian girls get a little crazy.

Totally guilty. I get inspired by someone and find some sort of connection and get attached. Thanks to social media I get glimpses of their real life and it gives me an illusion that we have an actual relationship.

Why are we so weird?

This is something that's been weighing heavy on me lately. As my circle expands and people get to know me through my business and social media accounts, I want them to know that I'm just Corie. I'm just doing my thing the best I can and moving forward one step at a time. I’m a wife, a mom, a friend. Corie. I just happen to make planners ;)
