Yummy, SWEET Valentine's Treats That You Can Make in a Hurry!

Happy Hearts Day!!!!!
Need some last minute ideas for your sweethearts?
 (big and small ones alike:)
well I've got you covered.......and I can vouch for them all! 
(and i'm starting to look like it;)
Let's get to it.........

Oreo Cookie Balls (or Oreo Truffles)   
 So good and SO easy!
What you need:
1 pkg.  (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
40  OREO Cookies, finely crushed, divided
4 pkg.  (4 oz. each) BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, broken into pieces, melted

MIX cream cheese and 3 cups cookie crumbs until blended.
SHAPE into 48 (1-inch) balls. Freeze 10 min. Dip balls in melted chocolate; place in single layer in shallow waxed paper-lined pan.  (Tip: use a toothpick to dip)
Sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs.
REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm.
(Substitute white chocolate if desired)

We have a tradition of making pink or red foods on Valentine's day.
This next drink is on the menu:)

Maybe I should stop here and get to dinner rather than dessert:)
No complicated dish here.........
Pizza with heart pepperoni!
Or take it a step further and shape your own dough in a heart:)
Me?  I'm lazy.  It's the heart shaped pepperoni for this girl:)

Okay, okay........you want something healthier, right?
How about fruit kabobs?
(Well, there IS fruit!  And marshmallows too!)

Don't you just love vintage Valentines?
The good old days:)

Sweet and Salty Valentine Popcorn
1/2 cup unpopped popcorn
1 bag Colorburst Pastels Candy Melts 
(Wiltons............or use any white chocolate to melt)
1 bag Valentine M&Ms
Sea Salt to taste

Lastly, I share you cookies made by my own little Valentine:)

Love, Love, Love on Valentine's Day!
XOXOXO

Michael Kors is Pretty in Pink, Tan and White, just in time for Valentine's Day...and SPRING!

Can you believe it's already Valentine's Day?
Me either!!!
Today, I thought I'd share my favorite picks for a truly
SWEET Treat........for yourself or for your Valentine to give you,
straight from Michael Kors.
(HINT: just send him this blog post and direct him to the
nearest MK lifestyle store;)
Michael Kors Pretty in Pink

I suppose I should say that my daughter works for
 Michael Kors in Naples, Fl.
In fact, she just got a promotion!!!!
Happy, Happy, HAPPY!
She even had a few other offers at the time but when
she got the offer from MK, that sealed it.
She loves working there and she loves the product. (Me too:)
Actually, I liked MK well before she started working there.
She just helps feed my habit;)

Funny thing is, I'm not a "designer" person.
I will shop at MK and then stop at a thrift shop on the way home.
Walmart carries my favorite leggings.
I really like the sundresses at the beach store.
And I'm a regular at Target.
See.....I spread the love and help out a variety of stores!
But I do LOVE Michael Kors.

With Valentine's Day fast approaching, (YIKES..........need cards!)
I thought I'd share my favorite goodies from the new line.
According to Taylorina, they are flying out of the store so act fast.
And if you're near Naples Waterside Shops, 
pop in and see Taylor.

Check out this GORGEOUS line of "Pink".
Complimented by the camel color, it's so fresh!

Are you a fan of Rose Gold?
It's my absolute favorite.
Well before I knew about MK, just sayin:)
In fact, back in the day, I had a ROSE GOLD fingernail on my pinky.
For real.
No kidding.
(although maybe I wish I were;)
And nobody does it better.....see for yourself..........
I just feel that unless you have the skin that is made for silver,
rose gold is such a warm, attractive metal.

Maybe now I should mention two of the things I love about the MK line.
1.  Michael uses a lot of Rose Gold, which I love. (as we already know, right:)
2.  He believes in mixing metal.  Layer it on.  
You don't have to have ALL silver or all gold or rose gold. 
 Thank you!  (This is especially great for us indecisive types:)

Fun fact...........Michael Kors calls his camel color "luggage". 
 It's a best seller, goes with everything and is his own personal favorite color.
And if you don't have anything in that shade, get it:)
And with spring coming, mix it with WHITE!
I also included my first ever, favorite grown up perfume.........
Michael Kors Signature.
It has scents of gardenia, vanilla and more but he had me at gardenia.
Seriously, I wore my daughters perfumes...sweet, surfer girl perfumes:)
Now we all love this.
It's pretty and light enough for life in Florida.......or wherever.

Well, see anything you like?
I know you did;)
Like I said, find a store or shop online at Michael Kors.
If not, I have one more tip!
Someone sent us Shari's Berries for Christmas.
I'd seen and heard the ads but thought.........ewww!
They''ll be rotten before they get to Florida.
Was I WRONG!
We fought over these berries and devoured them in record time.
And these are some seriously big berries!


I just sent some to my Mom for hearts day and her reaction was the same as mine.
Oh My Heck these are good!!! :)
They ship quick so if you need em, there's still time.
Although shipping may be $$$ at this point.)
But keep Shari's Berries in mind!

See ya!
