Seychelles Women’s Freesia Flat

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012


I love these adorable Seychelles Freesia flats! And they come in two other wonderful color combinations too. I have always been a huge fan of colorful flats and I think these will be a perfect burst of color for spring. The t-strap is always such a cute look with both pants and dresses alike. The unique vintage vibe of these stylish shoes will add a hint of sparkle to any outfit.

Cilantro Lime Marinade Recipe

Freshening up your Freezer!

by Gabrielle Moes, Owner & Executive Chef of Seasons Catering

At Seasons Catering, one of our favorite mantras is “fresh is best”. While we definitely stick to that when it comes to providing clients with amazing dishes, my freezer at home is always stocked with a few frozen basics so that I am never caught empty-handed at dinnertime. Like most of you, I always have either chicken thighs or breasts on hand. Both are easy to thaw and easy to cook. However, alone they are pretty boring. Whether it is used as a marinade, simmering, or dipping sauce, the following recipe will be sure to transform any boring chicken breast into an amazing dish.

This sauce is not just for chicken though! I make a big batch and store in a glass jar in the fridge to be used as a dipping sauce, marinade, salad dressing or sandwich condiment for that week. It is fresh, sweet, and truly goes with anything! Sky is the limit on this one! 

Cilantro-Lime Marinade

  • 1 1/4 fresh cilantro leaves
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 3 large shallots, diced
  • 5 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated lime zest
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha Thai hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • salt to taste

Combine all ingredients (except olive oil) in blender and combine until smooth. Slowly stream in olive oil while blending. Add salt at end to taste.

Tea Collection for Women

Wednesday, April 4th, 2012


We are all familiar with the adorable clothes that Tea Collection makes for little ones (like this absolutely fabulous dress pictured above!). I can’t tell you how many times I have heard friends say, “I wish they would make that in my size!” Well, the team over at Tea Collection has listened and they have launched and continued to grow their women’s collection and it is just as pretty and colorful as we would expect.


This Tea Collection Cili Floral Tunic is one of my favorite items from the spring collection. I can see myself wearing it with jeans and flip flops to pick up my son from school, or even with nice white pants and great earrings for a cocktail party. If you have read any fashion magazines lately you will see that prints are everywhere and are a must have look for spring and summer this year. I don’t know about you, but my wardrobe could certainly use some colorful prints this year to brighten things up (time to put the grey away!).


Here are a number of different styles for spring. These tops are just as comfortable as wearing a basic t-shirt but they will look so much more put together ( and cute!) than an ordinary t-shirt. I think these are great for stylish, busy moms everywhere. I can also see stocking up on a few for our summer vacation. So get ready for the sunshine and check out the New Tea Collection for Women today!
