Bridles & Baubles

Weekend Musings


Another week as come and gone and I have compiled a random compilation of things to do, see, buy, try, eat or read this weekend.

Eat This: Boozy Bailey's Toasted Marshmallows 

Light a fire after a day of swimming and dip a marshmallow in Bailey's Irish Cream and toast s'more style. Eat by them by themselves or sandwich between chocolate and graham crackers for an adult s'more.




Do This: Add An Electrolyte Supplement To Your Horse's Daily Feed

Now that summer has set in, make sure your horses stays well hydrated by encouraging them to drink more with an electrolyte and salt supplement. Did you know your horse needs 1 ounce of salt and 5-10 gallons of water a day? Progressive's Aqua-Aide is my horses' favorite.




Try This: Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Push-Up Liner

This eyeliner has been getting a ton of buzz and the reviews run the gamut from "best beauty invention ever" to "hard to use, clumpy and flaky". But it has my attention and I am game to give it a try!




Buy This: Athleta Andale Pant

I have been living in these super-lightweight pants ever since the UPS man delivered them to my door. You can wear them ankle length or pull them up to crop or knee length. They are the best kick around casual summer pants to pair with flip flops and a tank. 




Read This: The Dog's Bollocks by Lynda Renham

On arriving home after a friend’s posh wedding, launderette worker Harriet finds her life irrevocably changed as she discovers her flat ransacked and her boyfriend missing. In a matter of hours she is harassed by East End gangsters and upper crust aristocrats. Accepting an offer she can’t refuse, Harriet, against her better judgement becomes the fiancée of the wealthy Hamilton Lancaster, with dire consequences. What she had not bargained on was meeting Doctor Brice Edmunds. 

The Dog’s Bollocks is Lynda Renham’s funniest novel so far. A cocktail of misunderstandings, three unlikely gangsters, a monkey and a demented cat make this novel a hysterical read. Follow Harriet’s adventure where every attempt to get out of trouble puts her deeper in it. I love British chick lit and this book is perfect to read out by the pool.
