not your ordinary fruit kabobs

So I saw this idea floating around on Pinterest and decided to give it a try. It turned out wonderfully! I mean, fruits and chocolate Swiss rolls together on a skewer, what more could one want?

I couldn't keep this refreshing treat to myself so here's how you can enjoy it too.

What you'll need:
Fruits, Bamboo skewers, and Swiss Rolls
Stick the chocolate Swiss rolls in the freezer the night before for more yummy "kabobs." Slice up fruit of your choice and the cake. I used just pineapples and strawberries because that's all I had at the moment, but you can get cray with the fruit.

Add the fruit to the skewers and put in the freezer for another couple hours (this step is option but highly recommended). And voila!

I get to eat endless Swiss rolls without feeling too guilty ^.^

Happy noms,

Current Favorites!

Over the past few months, we have been obsessing over a few products and we thought we'd share some of our favorite "things" so you can obsess with us. Most of these products are beauty-related, but there are a couple of randoms that we couldn't hold back :)

1. BB Cream
BB cream used to be only available through high-end brands, but recently, "drugstore brands" have released their own! The market is extremely popular right now with so many options, so you have to shop around for what you think will work best for your skin. Whether you decide to splurge with a high-end brand or play it safe with a drugstore brand, BB cream will become an everyday essential. It basically does everything you'd want a face product to do to make you feel absolutely fabulous! We personally recommend Revlon PhotoReady BB Cream, but we haven't had the opportunity to try a wide variety, so research before you go to buy.

2. Milani Baked Blush
Words cannot express how beautiful these blushes are. They are exactly like high-end branded blushes without the hefty price. The color pay off is wonderful and it doubles as a highlighter without being glittery. It glides onto the skin and gives off a healthy, natural glow. Definitely a must-have!

3. Organic Face Rosewater Toner by Boots
Stumbled upon this at Target and it is basically a party for your face. This toner hydrates, wakes up, and refreshes your skin. It has a lovely faint scent of roses. You will always try to find an excuse to be able to apply thisto your skin because it simply feels amazing.

4. Voulspa Candles
There is nothing in this world that smells as wonderful as Voulspa Candles. Nothing. 
Did we mention they come in ridiculously cute tins? <3

5. Printed Pouches
This may seem odd, but there's something about elephants and umbrellas printed on a zipper pouch we can't explain. If you're going to stay organized, might as well stay organized in a cute manner, right? If we didn't have our pouches imprinted with bicycles and poodles, where would our lipsticks go?
