Neon





 Top: J.Crew (old but loving this one) // Jeans: H&M  (similar here) // Scarf: Small boutique (cute one here and here)Shoes: J.Crew (old these are on sale though!) // Lips: NYX in Dolly Girl

Maybe it's just me, but I think that neon is just one of those things that is best worn piled high - Neon on neon on neon! So when it's gloomy and nasty out, I try to boost my mood with a HUGE boost of color. How do you wear neon?

Life Lately: A Quick Update

("About Kelly" and "Fabulous K" pics via FabulousK.com)



Hi All! I'm sure you've been wondering where I've been lately, but I promise I have a good excuse - I've been super busy!! No really, check it out! In the past month and a half, this is what we (Sharon and I) have been up to: 

1) We moved Frill International Headquarters out of our houses and into a 1,500 sqft office!!!

2) This move, of course, then meant that we had to furnish our office, build some furniture and renovate certain aspects of the space. (A full office tour will be coming soon, I promise, but just a little hint - the renovations meant that Sharon and I had to put down flooring ourselves - well for half of it at least.)

3) Set up our sewing shop.

4) Hosted tons of fittings.

5) Organized recruitment outfits for sorority girls across the country.

6) Went on a Frill road trip to Atlanta. 

7) Set up a shoot to preview our new collection, featuring jewelry from Moon & Lola.

8) Oh yea - and in case you haven't noticed - I had my blog completely transformed! Kelly at Fabulous K, did an amazing job turning my blog from drab, to well, FABULOUS! She was such a pleasure to work with, completely understood my vision and turned it into a reality in no time! (Highly recommended, y'all.) Check her out at FabulousK.com.

Taco Tuesday: Pineapple Salsa Tacos





In honor of taco Tuesday, my boyfriend and I made some amazing tacos last night. We grilled jerk chicken, made cilantro rice, piled on some black beens and topped it with homemade pineapple salsa - and let me tell you, it was awesome! (I made mine so big, I had to turn it into a burrito!)

I love all kinds of salsa, but I think this pineapple salsa may just be my favorite. It was the perfect balance of fresh, sweet and spicy. We made a TON of it, and I definitely plan on putting it on a kale salad later. Check out the recipes below:

Pineapple Salsa:
(My boyfriend made up this one, but it's similar to the one found here)

1 whole pineapple
1 red onion
1 large jalapeno
1 lime (squeeze it for the fresh juice)
Salt
Pepper
Fresh Cilantro
Sriracha (just a squeeze, but it adds the perfect kick)

Trust me - if you like salsa, you will love this recipe just as much as I do!
