Doterra Grapefruit Oil

In my purse…

Grapefruit Essential Oil
I recently started using the grapefruit doTerra essential oil – and I love it.  It is the oil of a grapefruit rind in its purest form – I put 1-2 drops in my water and I find that it helps boost my metabolism and curbs my appetite while I’m sitting at my desk at work.  It also has a strong aroma that wakes me up and keeps me focused.  If it’s not in my purse, it’s sitting on my desk at work! 

In my agenda book…

PHS Pop-Up Garden Party
This Tuesday 5/9, The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society will be opening up their PHS Pop-Up Garden on 15th & South for the summer season.  The garden will be operated by a local Mexican restaurant, Los Caballitos Cantina, and the menu will feature several yummy eats like carnitas quesadillas and black bean hummus!  I went here a few times last summer – and I’m so happy that they will continue serving their signature drink – “The Woodermelon”.  Looking forward to the kick-off party on Tuesday!

In my tummy…

Trader Joe’s Chili Lime Burgers
I absolutely love these frozen burgers from Trader Joe’s.  I’m usually not a big fan of frozen, packaged items, however I came across these last summer and they are so flavorful.  If you saw my recent Cinco de Mayo post, these are what I used to make the chicken tacos.  Hint: I cook 1-2 burgers in a skillet pan and crumble them into taco-meat.  And just like that... chicken chili lime tacos!

In my closet…

Off-The-Shoulder Tops
I looooove off-the-shoulder, and have long before the recent craze! I find the look so flattering, whether it’s a short-sleeve top, long-sleeve, or a dress – plus, there are so many different styles that make it suitable for casual wear or dressy.
