We made a fun Valentine’s Day snack board recently, filled with sweet, salty and savory treats everyone is sure to love! It was such a hit with my family I thought I’d share it here too. If you have kids they can even help, or put the board together themselves.
What we added:
Laughing Cow cheese wedges
Rice Krispie Treats
We enjoy a mix of sweet, savory and salty items but you can change it up how you wish and even make it strictly a dessert board if desired. I added roses for display and that was a fun touch too!
The little fingers just couldn’t stay away!☺️These snack boards are always such a hit. Another fun idea that we have been making lately for snacks or even lunch are charcuterie cups! Meat, cheese, crackers, fruit, veggies, etc!
If you make either of these I’d love to hear about it! My social channels are linked below!

This year, more than ever, it’s important to remember our small shop owners and small businesses. Many have been forced to close their doors for periods of time due to COVID-19 and even those that never had a physical location to begin with have missed out on endless fairs and craft show opportunities in which they typically market their products. In addition to that, there are also fewer buyers this year due to job losses in our communities.
I’ve rounded up a few small businesses that I enjoy and wanted to share with you this season. I have shopped at and enjoy SO many small businesses and wish I could include everyone!

I am so excited to share Cascade Ice USDA Organic Sparkling Water with you guys today! If you are local to the Pacific Northwest like I am, you’ll be excited to hear that the company is located right in Everett, Washington.
I received compensation and product for this post from Unique Beverage Company, LLC. All opinions expressed here are my own.
I always make an effort to stay hydrated throughout the day as it’s one of the most important things you can do for your overall health. I find regular water gets boring day after day but don’t want the added calories or sugar that most beverages offer. Lately I’ve been enjoying Cascade Ice USDA Organic Sparkling Water; it’s my perfect match! It is free of calories, caffeine, sweeteners and sodium plus it comes in 9 delicious flavors, including Raspberry Lemonade, Pomegranate Mango, Ginger Lime, Citrus Twist, Black Raspberry, Grapefruit, Mixed Berry, Lemon Lime, and Cucumber. It’s bubbly and refreshing; perfect for enjoying after a workout, in a cocktail, with a meal or anytime you need a little pick-me-up! These 12 ounce cans are sold in packs of 8 in select stores across the country.
If you’re like me and regular water is just not cutting it anymore, definitely try Cascade Ice USDA Organic Sparkling Water. Fun and flavorful without sabotaging my health goals; it’s a win/win. I love all of the nine flavors but would have to say that the Black Raspberry and the Pomegranate Mango are the two I reach for the most. If you grab some, share it on socials and tag me @haleyparkerstyle plus use hashtag #DayMadewithCascade; I’d love to hear your thoughts and what your favorite flavor is!
I finally got around to posting E’s Llama Birthday Party photos from this summer (here), just in time for B’s birthday!😆She decoded to go with a Movie Theater party theme this year and it was so fun and unique! Our family loves popcorn and movie nights so we decided to finally invest in a popcorn machine and have already used it quite a few times. I purchased all of the party decor and accessories on Amazon except the solid plates, napkins and silverware which I found at The Dollar Tree. Popcorn Bowl cake is by @sweet_indulgence_pnw.
Dual purpose: I used paper popcorn boxes as party favor boxes too!

We love themed birthday parties in this house! For E’s 4th birthday she requested a llama party and it was so fun (and surprisingly pretty easy to find decor for)! We found llama party napkins, llama paper plates, a mini llama piñata (we used as table decor), pin the tail on the llama game, llama straws, llama tablecloth, llama party hats, a llama banner, llama girls t-shirt, llama party gift bags and more! All decor is linked to easily shop here. Cake and cookies are by the talented @momosmuffintops.
Money saving tip: Mix cute themed decor with plain colored coordinating pieces available at The Dollar Tree! We purchased the plain pink cups, plain green cups and pink plastic silverware from there!
Do you do themed parties? Once you start, it’s hard to stop😜but we sure have fun with it! What would be your dream party theme?
Gift Guides by personality type! I’ve included gift ideas for the jetsetter, for the beauty lover, fitness lover, leopard lover, camo cutie, homebody, techie, coffee lover, for the person that has everything😋, new baby (or new parents!) and the sports fanatic. What else should I add?! Happy Christmas shopping!😘
I love a good charcuterie board (I mean, who doesn’t!??🤤) but if you’re looking for something a bit more festive, a snack board is perfect for fall or Halloween parties! Not only are they fun and eye-catching but they can be super easy too.
I used all ready to eat snacks so the only thing left to do was arrange them on a platter. Be sure to choose snacks/candies of varying size and texture to be the most appealing and fill your platter as full as possible. If you can’t fill your platter or tray, choose a different one! It makes all the difference when it comes to presentation.
Fall Snack Board Treat Ideas:
•pumpkin shaped candy corn
•chocolate covered pretzels
•salt water taffy
•chocolate pumpkin candies
Hey friends! With the holidays, as well as Amazon Prime Day (October 13th and 14th) quickly approaching I thought it would be the perfect time for me to start sharing Amazon Gift Guides. I know with today’s technology and fast shipping, everyone’s busy schedules, plus the added issue of COVID-19, more of us than ever will be shopping for gifts online this year. I love Amazon’s wide variety of product offerings. Pair that with their often fast and free shipping and you have a one-stop shop for the holiday season. Today I’m sharing Amazon Gift Guides by year for girls ages newborn (or expecting parent) to seven years old. As a mom of two girls, now 4 and 6 (7 in a few weeks!) and as a mommy blogger, I’ve had the opportunity to test many products on the market for this age range and am sharing our favorites plus a few we haven’t tried yet but have great reviews and we’ve added to our wishlist. I haven’t included boys as I don’t have boys to test and review for a kids opinion of them but some of these shares feature gender neutral gift items. What do you want to see next? What person or people do you struggle knowing what to buy for?

I’ve been wanting to do a Seafood Boil for so long and finally did it last weekend; highly recommend! The flavor was perfect and it was so easy to do. I used three different types of sausage in the boil, all from the Kiolbassa brand. I used their Smoked Beef Sausage, Jalapeño Beef Smoked Sausage and Roasted Garlic Smoked Sausage; we love their meats! The jalapeño and garlic sausages especially added to the overall flavor of our meal.
If you give this a try be sure to come back and let me know what you think! We were super happy with how it turned out and can’t wait to make it again soon! It’s a great one-pot recipe that keeps your dirty dishes to a minimum, always a plus!
