Pretty, Glittery Easter Brunch Ideas!!

The Skinny Confidential talks Easter ideas.

Eek! Easter’s tomorrow!

I hope wherever you’re celebrating the sun is shining, the champagne is flowing, & the brunch is delish!

Here’s some of my favorite Easter ideas ( I’ll def be utilizing Peeps tomorrow & serving my sex kitten summer salad ):

1.} Peep cupcakes!! Who the F doesn’t like Peeps? I’m actually not a fan of eating them ( I’m more of a chocolate lover )…but seriously how cute are they?? Use them for decor or cupcake toppings. They’re so peeping cute! x.

2.} Bellinis, bellinis, bellinis! Fresh white peach bellinis are literally perf for Easter brunch. I like to add a little ice & make my own bellini mix.

3.} Pretty decor is mandatory for any hosted brunch. I love taking empty vases & filling them with color pastel candy. So pretty, right?!

4.} Glitter eggs are also another way to sex-up the table. Two years ago I made glitter eggs but used the plastic kind so they’re reusable each year. I’m obsessed!

5.} This sex kitten summer salad is a pretty, lil appetizer for a small group. Plus there’s avocado involved…yum! If you’re looking for something with more veggies, click here for ‘The Best Salad on the Planet.’

6.} A little DIY is always fun for guests. Set out colorful bowls of sprinkles, melted dark chocolate, & low sodium pretzels for guests to make their own chocolate dipped dessert!

Sooo, you guys have anything fun planned for Easter? Spill!

The Skinny Confidential talks to Always Against the Grain.

Ummm…if Carolyn Pinson from Always Against the Grain isn’t babe town x a bill, then I don’t know what is.

She’s got rocking style & a badass, sexy blog. Naturally I was immediately drawn to her style because it’s not typical— the girl has her own look going on. Love it, right?! Different= cool in my book.

Ok, so kick back, grab a glass of vino, & enjoy Carolyn Pinson:

|| + Hi! Introduce yourself. ||

Carolyn Pinson: My name is Carolyn Pinson. I live in Columbus Ohio & I’m a personal style blogger. I have a great love for fashion, but also love to travel & work out! Staying fit and eating right is a very important part of my life.

I also enjoy walking in local fashion shows & currently I’m pursuing modeling for online shopping websites.

|| Lil skinny tip? ||

CP: Cut out carbs, no alcohol, &/or sugar, Sweat as much as possible & track calories with the Live Strong App on the iPhone.

|| Ok, so your bod is rocking…spill your weekly workout schedule! ||

CP: My weekly workout schedule consists of running three to four times per week & doing hot yoga at least four times per week at Harbor Yoga studio. The hot yoga is not your average yoga class. It can last up to an hour & half and the room is 95 degrees…it’s hardcore cardio yoga to upbeat music.

|| + Healthy food obsession? ||

CP: My favorite healthy go to food is kale! Love it! Kale salads, smoothies, and I even put it on my pizza ; ).

|| Cocktail pick? ||

CP: My cocktail of choice is usually a glass of Chardonnay. But If I’m going to slurge and have more than one drink I go for a vodka soda.

|| Can’t live without beauty product? ||

CP: My can’t live without beauty product is my Clarasonic face brush. I use it every morning and night. It helps with fine lines and wrinkles! Plus my face is 1000 x cleaner.
