Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Treats



I'm a huge fan of any recipe that has the ingredients Chocolate and Peanut Butter.  I'm taking it back to one of my childhood favorites, Rice Krispy Treats. I mean who doesn't like rice krispy treats?

Ingredients:
6 cups Rice Krispies
6 TBSP Butter (yes, I double this from the original Recipe)
4 cups OR 10 oz Bag of Mini Marshmallows
1/2 Cup Melted Milk Chocolate Chocolate Chips
1/2 Cup Peanut Butter

Directions:
Heat butter on the stove, once melted add marshmallows {Continuously stir so it doesn't burn}
Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave 30 - 60 seconds
ADD Melted chocolate chips and Peanut Butter to the Marshmallow/Butter mixture
Once everything is combined, remove from heat and add Rice Krispies
Spray a 13X9 pan with Pam and press treats into pan
Let harden and ENJOY!

Diaries of A Bargainista: Marshalls Style


This skirt is another oldie, but goodie.  It's one of the first skirts that I posted on my blog, check out the original post.  For some reason, I have hung on to it all these years, but yet I still am loving it.  

After gaining 50 lbs with a baby I was afraid it would never fit again, but thankfully I held on to it and it still fits!!  Both the top and the skirt is from Marshalls.  If I remember correctly the skirt was only $14.99 and the top was $16.99.  My wedges are also from several years ago that I wear all the time! Let's just consider these "Free" since they are so old, LOL!

What do you think about this look?

Maxi Dress: KLR Remix

Have you ever thought about just putting a t-shirt over your regular maxi dress?  Gives it a whole new look!  I just tied-up the side and voila - a totally new dress!  You could even add a thick belt around the middle and you wouldn't even be able to tell that it's 2 separate pieces.

I'm re-mixing the Champs Maxi from Kiki La Rue.  You can read all out this dress here.

Lately I've really been trying to restyle either new pieces that I've bought or old ones.  You see, my addiction is shopping.  I love shopping, I love buying stuff just to buy stuff even if I don't need it. Online shopping is even becoming more fun now that I'm a stay at home mom and I can just point and click during nap time.  HOWEVER, since I am a stay at home mom I can't just go out and buy whatever I want whenever I want.  I also don't have nearly as much time to go and dig through the racks at Marshalls and Ross like I used to.  Remixing pieces and making them new again helps to satisfy my shopping addiction and need to always have something new.

What's your addiction?  Do you like shopping as much as I do?

Diaries of A Bargainista: Georgia Peach

Excuse the unintentional Ombre, should I just go for it and do it intentionally?
Cardigan {Kiki La Rue} / Blouse {Target} / Crops {American Eagle} / Shoes {Target}
Showcasing another Kiki La Rue piece today.  This Peach Tulip Cardigan is lightweight, so soft and is the perfect color.  I know the colors in my pictures make it look light pink, but it's really a light peach color.  It's also the perfect length and covers my tush which I really like. I literally can not wait to wear this with jeggings and riding boots.  I feel like you could also style it a ton of different ways.  I'm thinking maybe a plaid top underneath would be really cute too. 

I find myself always wearing cardigans like this in the fall and winter and even wearing them around the house with a tank and yoga pants. 

Do you have any go-to cardigans that you find yourself wearing all the time?

PIKO Top: 3 Ways

Piko tops have been all the rage this season and are so versatile! I love that you can wear them in so many different ways!  Not only are they super versatile, but they also hide the after-baby bulge!

If you know me really well, you know that I am a jeans and a t-shirt kinda gal.  T-shirts are my go to staple and a Piko top is the perfect way to dress things up a little more.

I think the look without the belt is my favorite, what do you think?

In these photos I first of all apologize for the terrible iPhone quality pics and second of all apologize for the stupid A** look on my face!  Sometimes a girl just has to snap a photo and go!

So now, where do you get this wonderful Piko Top?  Gee, I thought you'd never ask! Kiki La Rue of course!  I'm currently thinking about purchasing the Ocean Blue and Plain Ol Black Piko.  All Piko's are currently 20% off with code PIKOSUMMER, you're welcome! Which ones do you want?

I'm also still in the running to be a KLR Brand Ambassador and am literally on pins and needles waiting for my phone call this week!  Wish me luck!!! Oh and follow me on Instagram  so you can follow along with me on the daily!
