A Very Mardi Gras Treat Yourself Tuesday

Hi darlins'! It's great to see ya here!

Having just gotten back from vacation, like Becky @ Olives 'n' Wine, I have lots of New Orleans fodder today for Treat Yourself Tuesday. I think the notion that we should all make time to treat ourselves every day, even in the smallest of ways, is so important and that's why I love joining in on these TYT parties!



Here's how I've been treating myself lately...


Some new bling...



Another JewelMint.com find (after my first purchase, I got addicted). I don't know if I bought this "Mojito Ring" more for how much I loved the look or for the name :)

Beignets...



Brews for Days...


I definitely put a freeze on all craft beer limitations over the weekend, it was our vacation after all :)

and KING CAKE!


This was only my second time ever having King cake. Instead of baking in a little toy baby, this bakery hid a maraschino cherry in there!

    SO glad you enjoyed! Well deserved after crushing the Whole 30! I like beignets way more the king cake, and I love NOLA but haven't been in many years!
