I found this incredibly affordable dress while I was searching around for something a bit more boho than my other dresses. This particular one was found at necessaryclothing.com
The first thing I loved about this was that it was a maxi dress. I am convinced that for summer, a maxi is just as important as a simple sun dress. And the best part it, this one is $21.99, which personally, I think you would pay way more for at Urban Outfitters or even Forever 21.
This dress has a hamsa pattern in the middle, which is great for all you hipsters out there. I have been reblogging so much of this hippie-bohemian-yoga stuff lately, so I enjoyed the graphic. It comes in one color, and in small, medium, and large. The website has a ton of other great deals, but this new arrival was on my radar for a great affordable dress that you can wear over and over again during the summer time.

My roommate (who is amazing at nail art) gave me the cutest little manicure last night. I wanted something with spring colors, and I wanted some cute flowers as well. We made use of a few nail decals for the design.
We alternated the blue and yellow every other finger except the middle and ring finger were the same. The tips were a bit difficult, but we just painted as best we could and then cleaned it up with a q-tip and nail polish remover.
The flowers were done with plain white nail polish and a dotting tool. The little nail decals were in a set from Claire’s, and I think they’re really cheap. I also know that I go some cute Katy Perry ones in her Deluxe album set, and she made another collection of them for Claire’s.
Basically a self explanatory design, so let me know what you guys think! I have loved floral nails lately because I think it’s so girly and appropriate for the season. I might even try this design with different colors. What do you think of floral nails?
I made a pretty easy peanut butter cookie recipe, and all the ingredients are easily found right in your kitchen. I got the recipe off of Better Homes and Gardens, so go check out the website for the specifics. You really just need the basics: 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 and 1/4 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon baking soda, and 1 teaspoon baking powder, and an egg.
I first mixed the butter and peanut butter in a big bowl because all the ingredients are being mixed in, so you’ll need a lot of room for everything. After the butter and peanut butter mixture is smooth and creamy, start adding the granulated and brown sugar.
After mixing in the sugars, I added the egg and beat that in until it was even. Then I added the vanilla extract and baking soda as well as the baking powder. The consistency at this point is kind of gritty.
I then mixed in the flour, and I really had to mix this in good because it was a bit dry until I worked it into the batter. I then refrigerated the dough while waiting for the oven to eat to 375 degrees. It’s easier to form the dough into 1 inch balls while it isn’t so sticky, so refrigerating helps with that a bit. After waiting about ten minutes I rolled the balls and put them in a small ball with a good amount of granulated sugar so the dough is coated in sugar. You then place them on the cookie sheet evenly.
I used a fork to press into the dough before putting it in the oven. However, it was sticking to the fork, so I filled a glass with water and dipped the fork in before each cookie so the dough didn’t stick. I cooked them about 7 or 8 minutes, or until they got too brown around the edges. Tell me what you think!
