Labor Day Popsicle Fun


Labor day weekend is here! The holiday that truly marks the end of summer. Thankfully this weekend we will be having some nice weather here in Chico, California. We found these cute, easy, and delicious popsicles to make to make your holiday weekend a little bit more sweet!
IMG_9493

To begin, you will need a few different types of fruit. I chose kiwi’s, strawberries, and blueberries because of their vibrant colors that compliment each other so well. Next, you will need either coconut water or lemonade to hold the fruit in place. Lastly, you’ll have to get some sort of popsicle mold to put everything into (I found these at CVS in the bargain section)!

IMG_9494

It’s important to chop the fruit up finely so that you can make sure to fit it into the mold. The blueberries are small enough that you can just keep them whole.

IMG_9496

For the fun part, mix and match the different assortments of fruit that you want to put together! I loved making each and everyone different so that they were all unique. I must say I really enjoyed the look of the kiwi fruit.

IMG_9500

Next, pour the coconut water into the molds and then place the handles on to the top.

IMG_9505

Place the popsicles in the freezer for about 5 hours or until completely frozen.

IMG_9578

I just love how they turned out! And to my surprise they just slipped right out of the mold with no problem.

IMG_9593

Not to mention, they were super yummy too! Hope you have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend full of fun and tasty treats!

Thank you Santa Barbra Life and Style magazine for the great idea! (May/June 2016 issue page 87)

XOXO,

Ashley

Sneak Peak: Las Vegas Market

Hello Ladies!

Hope you’re having a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by!

As some of you may know, the Las Vegas Tradeshow just took place last week from August 15th through August 17th. Lucky for us, PB&J had the opportunity to attend and we found some cute new lines to add to our racks as well as some new arrivals from some of our favorites!

IMG_9343 3

The Magic fashion tradeshow is attended by many from across the globe. This tradeshow happens twice annually in Vegas and has about 10 different markets that each have their own unique look and elements. It’s such a treat to be able to attend such an exquisite show to be able to offer such an array of brands to our customers.

We just can’t contain our excitement about some of the new brands/apparel that we found and want to share some of them with you!

 

New Brand: People’s Project LA

New Brand: Tara Gasparian Jewelry Design

IMG_9353 3

One of our favorite new lines is the beautiful jewelry made by Tara Gasparian Design. The pieces are true little works of art and some of her pieces mix vintage treasures with new elements of leather and beading. Her attention to detail and not to mention her love of birds translates through many of her pieces making this such a gorgeous and so fitting new line for PB&J Boutique. Tara’s jewelry can be found in-store now and will be online by next week. We hope you enjoy this true treasure of a line. IMG_9355 3

IMG_9354 3

 

Mystree and the craziness. As you all know the brand will always be one of our very favorites and the entire crew that works for the line is truly amazing. It’s always an added bonus when you meet some life long friends and enjoy flipping the racks while catching up with them. The line looks amazing for Spring and you can find the Fall arrivals pouring into PB&J over the next few weeks.

Knot Sisters: Spring sneak peak and we are loving that the blush color will be seen in so many pieces from the line. Thank you Knot Sisters!IMG_9347 3

 

Moon River: So in love with this yellow halter dress coming to PB&J this Spring. IMG_9352 3

 

Hazel: This line has come out with some pretty amazing blazers and not to mention Holiday dresses. The brand is always so pretty and feminine mixing lots of gorgeous textures together at an affordable price. Expect to see more of this lovely line at PB&J this November. IMG_9348 3

 

Heartloom: It’s been a while since we have seen Heartloom and all we have to say is it has evolved into the prettiest of lines. It is super feminine with lots of lace, floral patterns and gorgeous colors. We can’t wait for you all to see the line in January and be sure to stay tuned for  another blog post about it.

Outside Lands Outfit Inspiration

Hi Darlings,

The festival of the summer, Outside Lands, is right around the corner!

We want to give you a few outfit ideas to keep you looking boho chic while staying warm in the, sometimes chilly, San Fransisco weather.

Pbj 8-1-2016-7

Outfit #1: We have paired The Red Diamond Tunic with the ultimate festival bootie, The Landslide Ankle Boot. The tribal details on this tunic are so unique and the long sleeves are perfect for keeping you warm without having too many layers. To complete the look, add an edgy touch with a waist belt such as the Brass Tips Belt.

 

Pbj 8-1-2016-6

Outfit #2: The Suede Like Lace Tunic screams “festival!” The suede texture and lace details are perfect for dancing and singing your heart out all day and night. We have paired dark high waisted denim and boho booties. To finish off the look, add some bling with the Olivia Wrap Bracelet

 

Pbj 8-1-2016-8

Outfit #3: You can never go wrong with a flowy tie dye top and fringe sandals. The Hayley Top is so easy to pair with cute jeans and fun jewelry. The fringe and heel on the Falls sandal make these the perfect festival shoe.

Whether you’re attending Outside Lands or watching it live on go90, stay stylish in these festival fashion outfits!

Happy festival season!

Brand Spotlight: Knot Sisters

pbj7-9-2016-14

Knot Sisters, a brand where masculine and feminine traits meet forming a unique line that is so versatile all year round. Each piece can be mixed and matched making the brand definately worth it. Oh, and did we mention it is super affordable too!

Jamie Reese and Cheryl Brubaker, the founders and designers of Knot Sisters, launched in 2012. We ended up loving the name even when we found out it originated from the constant confusion over whether or not the two ladies were sisters or not. So cute!

pbj7-9-2016-7Dresses Photographed: Layered Cake Dress/29 Palms Dress
pbj7-9-2016-17

pbj7-9-2016-10

Besides the versatility and name, we find the fabrics so amazing. Each piece has a unique print  along with added detailing. Whether it be a button or pleat, the pieces simply speak for themselves and always have us coming back for more.

Fourth of July Outfit Inspiration

The Fourth of July is near and it’s time to find the perfect outfit for this special day! Here at PB&J Boutique we have endless amounts of items that will help  you get ready for your holiday weekend. Here are a few looks we have put together to inspire a one of a kind 4th of July look.

pbj6-22-2016 (72 of 18)

Look #1: This look is inspired by a hot summer day. Whether you’re lounging by the pool or outside participating in 4th of July activities the Cherry Tassel tank top will keep you cool while also looking festive. We think the cute tassels add a fun flare to this light weight red tank. Also featured are the Axl Shorts that are so easy to slip on and can be paired with just about anything. Add some sparkle with the Ballina, Cataleya, and Tia bracelets. With just a few simple items your 4th of July look is complete.

pbj6-22-2016 (73 of 18)

Look #2: For a more boho look we have paired the Mia Crop top and Violet Navy and White skirt. This statement outfit is elegant as well as festive  with the flare of the maxi skirt. Here in Chico, California it is expected to be in the high 90’s, be sure to wear your sunnies!

pbj6-22-2016 (67 of 18)

Dress up any outfit with simple beaded bracelets. Featured is our Stackable Tassel Bracelet and Fresh Water Pearl Bracelet.

Look #3: If you’re looking for something easy to throw on, the Ariel Maxi is the way to go. Not only is it comfy and cool but the perfect colors for this special day. We’ve paired this maxi with the Storm sandal. When adding accessories we always love to add something sparkly. The bracelet we chose with this outfit is the Pebble Beach Bracelet 

pbj6-22-2016 (76 of 18)

Another easy accessory we love to add are statement earrings. The Star Dangle Earrings are perfect for this occasion! 

pbj6-22-2016 (77 of 18)

The necklace we have paired with this look is the Brown Tassel Necklace. The sparkly chain, tassel, and feather makes this necklace so unique and great for adding a special touch to any outfit.

Posh By Kat

PoshbyKat2

Posh by Kat had a very unique take on the Lilac Dreams Tunic! Throughout her blog post she makes it clear that she isn’t going to limit herself to maternity clothes! Being 35 weeks pregnant,  and looking beautiful we might add, she is finding it hard to find fashionable clothing that fit. On her  blog  she has linked “More Maternity-friendly picks” from PB&J.

Chico Farmer’s Market with Califlour Foods

pbjboutique-4

A whole head of Cauliflower in pizza?!

Last week we visited our friends over at Califlour Foods at the Chico Certified Farmers Market and tried their yummy Califlour pizza crusts! The Chico based company carries a variety of healthy flour alternatives; including their new Cali-Rice. As certified health coaches, founders Amy Lacey and Dana Grant created a line of fabulous products free of gluten, artificial flavors, and preservatives. Their “Keep It Simple” motto has led them to exclusively use fresh ingredients and develop easy to follow recipes. After sampling their Original and Cali-Red Pepper Crust we are hooked! We are excited how delicious it can be to eat clean.

The products are available for purchase at the Thursday night market and via Califlour’s Foods online store.

pbjboutique-3

Despite the rain, these beauties radiated positive energy in our red Keep It Simple tees by Cara Loren. We loved seeing how each lady wore the shirt, while staying true to their personal style. The boyfriend style cut is effortless and super versatile, with the front reading, “Keep It Simple.” This motto truly conveys the companies values. Each pizza crust is made with 4 fresh ingredients; cauliflower, cheese, eggs, and spices. For those of you going gluten free- these are a great staple for the entire family.
