This month my blog will be a combination of two topics that we EtsyBloggers were to write about. The first topic is about our favorite summer activities. I love the water so my favorite summer activity is to go to the beach again and again. If the beach is not an option then a lake or pool will do nicely. I love spending lazy summer days just relaxing by the water. Kick in an awesome barbeque dinner and that is the perfect summer day. To add to my perfect summer day, I will share my favorite summer recipe. I enjoy sipping smoothies while out by the pool. This recipe is so simple: Simply add 1 cup sweetened vanilla yogurt, 3/4 cup milk, 2 ice cubes, and 1/2 cup frozen strawberries in a blender and blend it up until smooth. If it is too thick then add some more milk. If too thin then add more yogurt or strawberries. I've also used blueberries and raspberries in this recipe. Super healthy, yummy, and nice and cold on a hot summer day. Enjoy.

Vacationing Down Under

This month for my blog post about real life instead of the shop, we EtsyBloggers are writing about our experiences vacationing or living "Down Under." I have visited Australia a few times and absolutely love it. I have done many of the sights, but my favorite is definitely the Great Barrier Reef. You take a boat out to the different reef areas and then you get your scuba or snorkeling gear on and dive right in. After a few hours of diving you get to eat a wonderful lunch boatside and then it is off to another reef for a whole new diving experience. The undisturbed beauty and peace of it all is breathtaking. It is definitely worth a visit.

Featured EtsyBlogger: Nanjo Dogz

This month we EtsyBloggers are featuring a really neat artist who runs the shop called Nanjo Dogz. I absolutely love these wonderful beads. I am such an animal lover and these beads would make the most wonderful addition to any jewelry piece. I am especially partial to the Boston Terrier, English Bulldog, and French Bulldog pieces. The little bee is so cute on the Terrier's ear and the little turquoise bead on the English Bulldog's neck adds the perfect splash of color. The beads are made out of polymer clay and are then sealed with varnish so they are well-made and beautiful.
