The Last Thing Thursdays {#5}

It's Thursday (OY VEY where did the week go?) again!! Time for another round of my Last Things!! 

This necklace from my adorable and amazing friend Megan from Across The Pond. She just opened her new SHOP -- it's filled to the brim with beautiful jewelry, and I'm smitten with all of it (and her :)!

ATE (THAT WAS BAD FOR ME): A caramel apple. I just can't say NO to these--they call my name with false promises of being "good for me cause there's an apple in there somewhere")

ATE (THAT WAS GOOD FOR ME): More Coconut Almond Butter w/ Apples (ummm I might like apples a little, ok?). A lot of you asked me how to make this/where to get it when I talked about it in THIS post. So here is my recipe:

3 Cups Almonds
1/2 Cup Organic Coconut Oil or Butter
1 tsp. Honey
1 pinch of Sea Salt

**Grind all the ingredients in a food processor and VOILA! Easy Peasy DELICIOUSNESS!! :)

PINNED: Inspiration Pics for my Office/Art Room. This is my next big project. I am really excited about having my OWN ROOM to craft, design and work in. YAY!

So far..I'm thinking THIS color palette....
 With THIS look/vibe:

CRAFTED: Some new jewelry designs after I went to the Gem Fair and found these gorgeous Druzy Stones. I am SO EXCITED about these new bracelets!!! I'll show you pics when they are done! :)

FELT NERVOUS ABOUT: The possibility of opening my own jewelry shop. It's a little daunting...but I think know I'm READY!

SWOONED OVER: Anything and everything Chevron (my hubby said "Like the Gas Station?").

  2. Just came across your blog from eat yourself skinny- I love caramel apples!! When I was on vacation a few weeks ago I had a white chocolate & oreo covered one & it was worth every bite haha!

    I have never heard of coconut almond butter but I definitely want to make that now- sounds amazing!! Thanks for sharing! New follower :)

  4. I can't get enough of Chevron! It is just so edgy ! I am eying that cell phone case too!

  5. Almonds, Coconut, Apples...all my favorites. Why have I not coated my apples in more things?? :)

  6. I think that color palette is perfect. Dainty but not too pastelly and it has a modern feel too. Your office will be sweet!

    Don't be nervous about opening your own shop! Sounds like you have plenty of ideas and elbow grease and imagination :) It'll go great.

  7. I am loving chevron too. My whole living room is decorated with it. My husband was also making the same comments, but now he knows better ;)

  8. I bought the green necklace from Megan this week! :) Also, LOVE the colors for your office. My bedroom is close to the green in the top right and I accented with coral and turquoise and yellow.
    Congrats on the jewelery shop. I'm so uncrafty.

  9. I absolutely adore that colour palette!!! I hope you post about your new office when it's all up and running!

    And oh my goodness! I can only imagine how it would feel to open your own shop... but I'm definitely excited to see what you'll have there :)
