20+ Yummy and Fun After School Snacks




Don't know about you, but after school snacks are one of my fave meals of the day. For me it's the time to catch up with the kiddos after a long day, and find out what they've been up to at school. So they also need to be fun. And of course healthy. And not fill them up too much so they don't eat dinner. 

Quite a few boxes to tick for a humble snack, huh?! So prepping is essential. And with the help of Foodie.com I've selected some funky recipes to help make after school snack life a breeze.

Summer Cocktails Recipes

Because yesterday we were talking bar styling, then naturally today's post had to include drinks and recipes. After all, no self-respecting party bar is complete without pretty libations?! 

Here are some of my faves, handpicked for their awesome taste but also good looks, 'cause we all know we eat (or drink) with our eyes first. I'm particularly digging all the recipes that contain some sort of herb: thyme, mint, lavender, rosemary...to make use of my garden bounty this summer! Looks super funky too!!

Though we're all prepping for back to school 'round here, summer is not over yet. No, sir! And we're still making the most of our sunny days by eating and drinking al fresco as much as possible. So bar styling has become a necessity really. They're so practical and can look totally awesome for any occasion.

Here are some of my fave picks from Pinterest that totally scream summer and style! There's something for every taste or celebration - family get-together, drinks with the gals, weddings...because bars are trendy right now, looked totally hip and are also super practical. Trust! 

Hope they spark your imagination, and help you squeeze out the last drops of your 'summer juices' ;)
