[EAT] RUBY JEWEL

{Photographs by Sally J Shim}

Ruby Jewel is a local ice cream company here in Portland. Although they sell their yummy ice cream in markets across the country the boys and I like to visit their sweet scoop shop on N. Mississippi. Ruby Jewel uses local and handmade ingredients and sauces. They offer cones [I think the kid scoops are the perfect size], floats, sundaes and ice cream sandwiches.  J favors the caramel with salted dark chocolate while j loves the strawberry. It is the perfect spot to meet up with friends on a hot summer day.

[WEAR] LULU FROST

{Lulu Frost}

I'm smitten with these Code number rings by Lulu Frost. I think they look pretty stacked together on one finger. I love the gold version but they also come in sterling silver and 18K gold with diamonds.

[P.S. Pretty Mommy carries them and they're having a sale!]

[WEAR] ZARA BOYS FW11

{Zara}

I love dressing my boys in classic and comfortable clothes. So no surprise that I love the Fall/Winter 2011 Zara Boys collection. [Ok, I admit I'm not a fan of their "athletic" and "character" wear.] I am counting down the days until their September 7 online shop opening here in the U.S.!

[EAT] FRUIT ICE POPS

{Photograph by Sally J Shim}

I love cold fruity treats and so do the boys! We have used our Tovolo Ice Pop molds for years and this summer our favorite treat to make are Fruit Ice Pops. Inspired by the Special Issue Everyday Food magazine the boys and I have been enjoying these fruity treats all summer.

F R U I T  I C E  P O P S

Makes 8

[recipe adapted from Everyday Food]

1 peach

1 kiwi

8 cherries

4 strawberries

2 cups juice [we used 100% peach juice]

Cut the peach and kiwi into slices. Pit the cherries and cut in half. Cut the strawberries in quarters or halves. [We use whatever fresh fruit we have around the house-- blueberries, grapes and berries are also favorites to add.] Place an assortment of cut fruit into popsicle molds. Pour juice to the top of each mold. Insert popsicle sticks and freeze until solid [approximately 5 hours]. Run popsicle molds under lukewarm water to help loosen them up. Enjoy!

[DESIGN] CABLE & COTTON

{Cable & Cotton}

I love the decorative cotton lights by Cable & Cotton. You can order pre strung lights or customize your own by color and length. The lights would be perfect for a party, wedding or indoor/outdoor space. I'm also intrigued by their Big Lamps which might be a less expensive alternative to the Random Light that I've been eyeing for years.
