One of my favorite salads of all time is the Caprese. Its one of my summer favorites with ripe tomatoes, and sliced mozzarella. This is a great pair with a good fish such as a lemon pepper tilapia, (which I absolutely love). If you aren’t a huge green salad lover, this may be just the salad for you! I usually do not make my caprese salads with greens, but you are more than welcome to add it . I do drizzle a little olive oil and vinegar on my salad , instead of using balsamic .
If you aren’t a fish lover, this is an amazing salad to be paired with a good steak also.

Swimsuit season is just around the corner, and I have to rave about a great company who’s clothing line is to die for. You rarely see many companies out with something new and fresh. It’s usually the following of trends from one company to another, and why not? When something is great, everyone wants it.. I just found this amazing company that carries the best of the best. Anything from swimwear to their clothing line , to the accessories. Everything is wonderful. I have to say my favorite is the swimwear line because it’s a different line, but classy. To top it off, they have the finest coverings to go over your swimsuit.
If you are looking for a one piece or a bikini , to rock that toned body you have worked so hard for, you can find some great , cool pieces. The Ruffled one piece would be perfect for a person that wants something fresh, but doesn’t want to show too much skin. The two piece they carry , that is accented in lace, is perfect for that person who loves a bit of vintage in their clothing. The price point is a bit high to some, but their pieces look amazing. You can find these gorgeous pieces at Http://www.forloveandlemons.com. Here are some of my favorites! images courtesy of forloveandlemons.com
