When making the plan for my Print All Over Me collaboration photoshoot,
the jewelry was pretty much straightforward. Any daisy, swirly, funky
looking jewelry would be welcome. I brainstormed an idea to make a
marbled necklace, how was the question, though. My first plan was to buy
large unfinished wooden beads and string a whole chunk together, until I
came across this vintage necklace. The beads were colored, but faded
and not quite what I was looking for. But the frame and the gold! It was
perfect otherwise, so it was a great foundation for my experiment. I
just disconnected the beads from the chain and attached each one to a
wooden skewer. Then I used nail polish in my color scheme for the
collaboration in the same fashion that you would marble your nails.
Slowly pouring bits of color into a cup of water and swirled around to
make a marbled effect. The colors turned out perfect and looks magical
with the gold circle chain!

I was asked to try the Ceremonial matcha tee from Midori and was super excited to try out a recipe for it. After doing my food pairing for the cherry blossom wine I made, the first thought in my mind was white chocolate and so that's what I did!
I used Almond Breeze almond milk as the base, it doesn't have a strong nutty flavor and froths extremely well when heated and sweetened. I dissolved a few vegan white chocolate chips in the pan and added the almond milk to heat it. Then once the milk was heated, I poured it over 1/2 tsp of matcha powder and added a drizzle of honey and frothed it right up. This makes a super creamy and sweet cup of tea and using almond milk added an extra creaminess to it.
Once the weather allows, I'll be mixing up something for an iced tea!
