Here is a fun, easy July 4th dessert for you!  It is easily transported so it is a favorite of mine to make. You probably saw me making this if you follow me on Snapchat (thelushlist). The first round of whipped cream turned into some weird butter/yogurt concoction…yuck!  This is the recipe I use…just don’t get distracted talking to your friend while you are making it!

This patriotic dessert is sure to be a hit at your celebration this weekend. If you don’t have a trifle bowl, you can also use a large clear bowl and it is just as pretty.  I use my trifle bowl a lot for other things…salad bowl, displaying fruit, even serving sangria.

I have to show you this top once again.  I can’t get over the detail and gorgeous beading…and fact that it is Tommy Bahama!  So well priced for all the handiwork! Another brand would be so much more expensive.

Creating the Habit of Exercise + Activewear Favorites

Creating the Habit of Exercise + Activewear Favorites

One of the ways I am taking advantage of the forced pause is creating the habit of exercise for myself. I don’t talk about exercise much on AWL because, well, I don’t usually do it. But that is changing!

My Work From Home Style

Because I’ve worked from home for 24 years, either freelancing PR, event planning, volunteering or blogging, WFH or Work From Home attire is not new to me.  While there are days I stay in workout clothes, I get much accomplished when I get dressed for the day!
