The Valentine's Scramble

Only a few more days until Valentine's Day!  I know that we are all in a scramble to figure out:
 What to Wear, Finalize Plans, & Make Everything Extra Special

Well, We want to help you with all of these!  So, today we want to just touch on some extra special pieces (new arrivals), that you can snap up for your plans, whether out or at home.  Some great ideas for dates or ladies night.  And maybe a recipe or two.

When thinking about a holiday that is all about Love, we think everything should have a Touch Of Pink!  Check out these new arrivals that are screaming for everyday, but can be great for a special night.  Dress them up or down, we know you can!

We know that if you are going out... You probably already have reservations or set plans on where to go.  I know that lots of ladies procrastinate finalizing special plans when you are staying in.  So here are a few ideas...

What about a Fondue night? It's easy to make, keep warm, and you have so many options.

      Dipping foods
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries
  • 1 red apple, cored and sliced
  • 1 green apple, cored and sliced
  • 1 banana
  • 1/4 cup jumbo cashews

Light chocolate sauce

  • 1/2 cup skim evaporated milk

Thoroughly wash and dry strawberries and apples. Cut apples and banana into 3/4-inch-thick slices. Arrange all fruits and nuts on a plate. To make chocolate sauce, whisk together cocoa, sugar, and Splenda in a medium-sized bowl. Slowly pour in milk to make a paste. Mix together to remove lumps. Transfer to a medium-sized saucepan and bring to a low boil over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Transfer chocolate sauce to fondue pot. Place pot over candle or canned heat burner. Slide fruit pieces onto fondue fork or toothpick and dip into sauce. For nuts, spoon sauce onto a plate and dip nuts in sauce by hand.
