week night dinner: the easiest shrimp dish you'll ever make

Yes, Seriously.
The. Easiest. Shrimp. Dish. You. Will. Ever. Make.
Oh, and its delicious too!
My friend found this receipe from a magazine but I can't remember which one.
Here is the recipe:
Olive-Oil Baked Shrimp
2 lbs. large shrimp (peeled & deveined)
3 tbsp chopped garlic
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
4 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp salt
1 tbsp red pepper flakes
3 tbsp copped parsley
1/4 cup chopped fresh tomatoes
1/4 cup wine

Preheat oven to 375 degrees; Combine all ingredients in an oven-safe saute pan; Bake for 10 minutes

Doesn't that sound super easy?  Try it and let me know your thoughts!

I have made this recipe several times and I have never been disappointed.  By the way, I didn't use the parsely this last time so the picture is missing the much-needed "green" touch.

this look for less: spiked cuff

Both Spikes and cuff bracelets have been trending for some time now and I don't think they're going out of style anytime soon!  My favorite version is the Pave Cone Cuff from BaubleBar for $28.  These dainty bracelets are best for stacking with other bracelets or even with your watch.

Although the BaubleBar version is still a great deal, if you don't care about the pave crystals, you can get this look for less with the Hillcrest Skinny Spike Bangle from Francesca's for only $12!
So, are you  fan of the spike or cuff bracelet trend?  How do you wear yours?  Please comment below as I would love to hear from you!

happy friday + cozamia prints

I know I am probably late to the game, but have you heard about Cozamia?  If you adore colorful modern art,you HAVE to check it out!  Nancy Ramirez is the genius behind these beautiful pieces and her technique of mixing both traditional and digital methods results in some really unique art.  They are bold, colorful and add the perfect touch to any room!  You can buy them direct from imagekind and choose from 5 different sizes, choose between a poster, canvas or framed print and even pick the paper (e.g. enhanced matte, premium photo glossy, etc.)!
Just perusing her prints online make me happy; I can only imagine how I will feel when I see them in person.  I have my eye on that Flamingo Mingle print for one of the rooms in my home.

Here are some of my favorites from Cozamia.
Happy Friday ya'll!  Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?
