❤ Ooh Somebody Loves You! ❤

Hey UTT Followers!

Has anyone told you that they love you lately?  Well, look no further because you found it here from my girlie Betty Who!  This featured track by her is an absolute love of mine and now I’m sharing it with you!  Are you feeling loved already?  If I had to sum up Betty Who’s musical style, I would say her music has a Retro 80’s Pop that leaves you craving for more of it.  She’s definitely an artist to keep an ear out for if you haven’t heard about her yet.  So, check her out and remember …YOU ARE LOVED!

Hey UTT Followers!

As summer draws close and vacations are behind us,  I’m curious in knowing which summer dance hits heated up your sand ocean adventures this year.  The musical waves of Electronic Dance surfed in some high energy tracks, leaving ocean cabanas anything but tranquil.  With summer bashes now washing out into the sunset, it’s time for you to cast your votes for the hottest dance tracks that rocked your summer party!  Below are the Top 6 Dance Tracks I compiled from Billboard.com‘s Top 25 list of hottest songs this year.  There were so many great ones to pick, but these are ones I heard most on the radio and also added to my summer playlist.  I’m excited to see which one topped you summer playlists!!! 😀

Thrifty Thursday: Nail Polish Key Caps

Key Collage

If you’re like me, you have a keyring full of look-alike-keys with no clue in telling which one is the house key or the storage key.  Annoying right? Not to mention that at nighttime it’s even more difficult to tell them apart.  I’m sure you’re already hip to the PVC/ leather keycap trend to solve this issue, but what do you do when those caps get worn and torn off?  Lose money buying another pack?  I think not.  That can all be avoided because I discovered something that’s durable, unique, and a lot less costly in the end.

To keep you from constantly spending money on keycaps, opt into painting your keys with nail polish.  This solution made me very happy because I own a lot of it and I’m sure you do too! Lucky us! 😀  So here you are, an easy, thrifty way to customize your keys without the hassle of fussing with thick, rigid keycaps. Yay!

As you can see in the B/A photos above, your keys look sleeker and more stylish than those bulky caps.  Plus, you can design them however you want.  Your imagination sets the stage for your designs, whether you want your keys to be glittery, neon, pastel, glow-in-the-dark, etc.

So UTT friends, thank you for allowing me to save you a little moolah today.  It was my special way of sharing this fun and cost effective solution with you.  Stay thrifty my friends! 😉

Much Love,

Tempest

Spring Treats: Watermelon Jell-O Petites

bela_hello-jello2

Yield: Makes 20 fruit slices

Ingredients

  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 (3-ounce) pkg. strawberry-flavored gelatin
  • 1 cup chopped fresh OR frozen* strawberries (*thawed )
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 5 limes, halved, pulp scooped out & discarded, AND rind halves reserved
  • 1 teaspoon black sesame seeds, poppy seeds, or basil seeds

Directions

  1. Slice the fruit cleanly in half lengthwise (through the axis).
  2. Carefully remove the pulp while keeping the half rind fully intact.
  3. Ensure that the rinds are dry (you can use paper towels to blot them).
  4. Set each half rind upright in a muffin pan so you can fill it with Jello.
  5. Mix the water with the gelatin (just like you would to make jigglers).
  6. You’ll want the Jell-O a little firmer than the normal recipe as you have to slice it in half again.
  7. Make sure that the gelatin is well dissolved, and then pour into the fruit before it begins to set.
  8. Fill up as high as you can; the Jell-O will shrink a bit when cooling.
  9. Carefully transfer to the fridge and let set for about three hours, per box directions.
  10. When the Jello is set, place the fruit open-side down on a cutting board, hold it’s shape with one hand and carefully slice in half lengthwise again to form quarters.
  11. Be careful not to smash the fruit as you’ll want to keep the Jello intact (you may use a serrated knife).

Much Love,

Get your crochet hooks out because I want to share a book that just released today on AMAZON.COM for the Kindle.  As you already know, I am passionate about anything artsy and this book falls into my crafty radar!  I am particularly fond of this book because the author, Tiara Thornton, is my sister and company owner of Sassy Curls which strives in “helping women embrace their individuality, value their self-worth, and discover their dreams”.
