Dr. Gore’s office is one of the few private practices that offer’s the exclusive one for one model – TOMS eyewear.¬†And we’re throwing a party! There will be music, a raffle, Photo Booth, and an exclusive look at TOMS eyewear – including tons of discounts on other brands eyewear and sunglasses offered by Dr. Gore! Did I mention, a GIANT RAFFLE BASKET? I’ll let you in on a little secret… 1 of the many gifts includes a 1 hour ice cream making class by none other than the famous Carmela’s Creamery!!

Now, for the extra cool part. For every pair of TOMS eyewear purchased at the event, you’ll get a FREE case that you can decorate yourself. There will be tons of crafts supplies and special TOMS artists there to assist you! It’s going to be a blast! So mark your calendars and I hope to see you there!

Grapefruit Lavender Soap DIY


I love bath products. So. Much. Every Thursday I find myself hanging out in front of the goats milk soaps that are so incredibly fragrant and I have to stop myself from spending $200 on 4 soaps lol. So, I turned to Pinterest in search of a better option. And low and behold I discovered the most amazing (and simple recipe ever!) I posted my first batch on Instagram and I got a huge response from interested gals so I thought I’d share the process that I found on A Beautiful Mess here as well as details on my second batch where I made my own recipe =)

{SUPPLIES} – goats milk soap base – found mine HERE // silicon mold (I used this one) // essential oils- I used grapefruit, lavender, peppermint (not all together!)

{EXTRAS} Grapefruit zest // Poppyseeds

Mini Banana Cream Pie Recipes

So, I stumbled upon this adorable recipe for mini banana cream pies (perfect for a little get together!) And I feel like people are more down to try a bite sized treat that opt for a whole slice of pie – perfect! The recipe I found was from and it was perfect for me – super simple. But I made a few adjustments of my own and I’m in love with the final result. (image below via
