Oh yes! Another holiday means I get to delve into my collection of Vintage Images once again. This time around, it's St Patrick's Day vintage postcards. Enjoy!
This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Avocados from Mexico. All opinions are 100% mine.
Oh, avocados, how do I love thee? I love you in salads like a Cobb. I adore you in sandwiches like turkey and avocado on a croissant. You are the main ingredient in my favorite dip – guacamole. Furthermore, you were the basis of one of my favorite grade school science experiments. You know the one, where we try to sprout your pit and plant it?
I’m not sure when our love affair began, but I do know it was love at first bite. Growing up in California, we had Avocados from Mexico quite often, and with just about everything.
I’m sure I’m not the only one that has this love/love relationship with avocados. If you have a friend that feel similarly to how I do, share the avocado love! With the Share the Avocado Love Facebook app, you can send your avocado lovin friends all kinds of things, like screensavers, ringtones, and badges that proclaim their love for avocados.
If you feel the need to share your love of avocados with the world, you are in luck. There’s an Avocados from Mexico Cafe Press store that has all kinds of avocado branded merchandise. Yes, you heard, errr…read that right! There’s the normal things like tote bags, and I love Avocados tee shirts, even aprons. You can also pick up a serving tray or a coffee mug.
However, I saw this avocado Calaveras de azucar (sugar skulls) tee shirt, and I knew it had to be mine.
I mean, seriously – how great is that? I especially love the avocados as eyes! I think that you could share your avocado love without it screaming “YO! I LIKE TO EAT AVOCADOS.” Of course, they also have a shirt that has an avocado dressed up as Santa Claus, and both a stocking and a trick or treat bucket filled up with avocados. Sounds like a good holiday to me!
What’s your favorite way to have avocados?
As you may know, I am a huge fan of shortbread! I love all kinds of shortbread cookies and I'm always looking for new recipes, new flavors, and different ways to make it. This recipe is for Authentic Irish Shortbread and would be a fabulous addition to your St Patrick's Day meal.
Oh. did I mention it's pretty easy to make, too.

It appears that there are some serious concerts to see in 2013! There are some music tours that are more anticipated and revered than the rest; it takes more than fancy clothing and a rock star image to woo the audience. A music artist is required to be an epitome of individuality and inspiration, and that makes him/her stand out from the crowd.
If you are a music buff, you would know how some musical concerts are more exciting than the others. Nobody is crazy for the usual lip syncing amateurs; it takes someone truly adept in his or her genre to bring down the house. Here are some of the most original showmen in the industry, who can mesmerize millions with a live concert:
There is a reason why Aerosmith is a legend; this band knows how to rock the night away. Better known as America’s greatest rock n roll band, they have been performing since the 1970’s, and continue to boast of house-full shows. The immaculate guitar skills and Steven Tyler’s vocals, that are equally brilliant when performing live, bring in thousands of rockers to see an Aerosmith act. Hands down, this rock band is a must see!
Valentine’s Day is veering down upon us rapidly. I mean, I can see it from here, and I don’t have a clue as to what I’m going to do yet. It may be a popcorn and movies night. What movies? Perhaps one of these great Romantic movies.
Crazy Stupid Love – It’s got Emma Stone. And Ryan Gosling. As a couple! I almost don’t need anything else. Add in the fact that it has a great story line and is a fabulous movie just makes it better.
I love a good dip. Heck, I love appetizers, and have to admit – sometimes, I don’t see the need for a main course. One of my favorite dips is Spinach & Artichoke dip, but it can be so heavy and bad for you. This version is much lighter in calories, yet still has a rich and satisfying taste and texture. One of the secrets is Progresso Recipe Starters.

One of the fashion looks or styles that I’ve always liked is the Southwest style. It seems to be making a bit of a comeback as well. We all know that everything in fashion is cyclical. There are a few key elements that really pull a Southwestern look together.
Handmade jewelry is huge in the Southwestern trend. A big part of this is that the Native peoples of the Southwest were master craftsmen. Sterling silver pieces inlaid with brightly colored gemstones like turquoise, lapis, jasper, and malachite are very common. Jewelry pieces like copper bracelets are quite popular as well. And we can’t forget the beaded jewelry pieces – both woven and strung.
