Besides the difficulty of being on-the-ball enough to already have dyed Easter eggs, the whole thing is pretty simple:
And at the end you get awesome kiddo art like this:
For all the steps and details, make like the Easter bunny and hop over to This Little Miggy. And then don't forget to come back over here and tell us how it went!

I think most of us can agree we want to get fit and look good for bikini season. But it’s just so dang hard when there’s so many good snacks out there tempting you to wander from your healthy diets.
I was so happy to stumble upon a delicious snack that is totally healthy and delicious.
Behold: Chocolate-dipped apples with granola.
It’s great for so many reasons—One: it’s healthy. Apples, dark chocolate, and granola. Can you say superfood? Two- It’s yummy to boot. Three, and possibly most importantly: It’s ridiculously easy to make. I am culinarily challenged (it’s a serious condition) and I was able to make this with ZERO phone calls my mom. Yeah. What now.
Here’s how it goes:
Step 1- Melt Chocolate
Step 2- Cut up apple
Steph 3- Dip apple in chocolate
Step 4- Sprinkle on granola
Step 5-Eat and fall in love.
What are some of your healthy snacks?

The style savvy people over at The Washingtonian put together three outfits that incorporate bright colors, and that can be adapted to any kind of occasion. I like how each of these feature one really bold piece, like these J. Crew toothpick jeans, balanced out with some neutrals.

The Spring colors are here!
Twice a year Pantone collaborates with influential fashion designers to determine "the" colors for spring and fall. Tangerine Tango and Cockatoo are the two I want to focus on today.
The orange hue is a color that has been popping up more frequently, and I have to tell you that I love the boldness.
If you're feeling a little bold yourself, try out our Cockeyed Optimist or Walk the Plank dresses.
It will be hard not to be a Cockeyed Optimist yourself in a tiered orange dress that is comfortable yet casually stylish. I love the portrait neckline, which draw the eyes to your face-- the place you truly radiate!
If a modern nautical dress is more up your alley, try Walk the Plank instead. It combines two of our favorite separates: the classic tee and the flouncy skirt. Ahoy!
Cockatoo is a lovely shade of light blue and gives off a feeling of softness. If this more subtle statement is more your style, try our Alice lace dress or Roma! on for size.
The beautiful Tiffany blue lace dress is a perfect way to welcome spring. I love the texture of the lace extending past the lining, giving this dress a little bit of extra femininity, which I adore!
Roma!, a casual v-neck dress, is always just what I need when I am running errands that demand an effortlessly chic and comfortable outfit.
How about you? What do you think of Pantone's picks? And what color will you be wearing to ring in Spring?

Summer is fast approaching. That means it’s time to shave your legs, get a pedicure, and don some adorable kicks.
How about a pair of fabulous-- and colorful!-- oxfords? They’re such a fun way to add a little bit of prep to your outfit.
They pair well with anything. A summery sundress, some high-waisted shorts, or even your favorite pair of jeans with the cuffs rolled up.
We’re also loving platform wedges for when you want to dress up a bit.
We recommend a neutral wedge as neutral tones are so, so chic at the moment. With a brightly color dress or bold print, these wedges are a hit.
And finally, we have our very own Cherry Blossom kitten heels. We love that they add a little bit of vintage to an otherwise modern look.
You could easily rock these with a pair of bright colored shorts or a flirty little dress.
Any way you do it, these shoes are a fun way to ring in the summer season!
How about you, friends and fans? What summer footwear can you not live without?

If you know of one happening around here, please invite me, I am dying to get a couple of Shabby Apple Whites and wear them around town.
I am such a sucker for the white summer lace dress, Malt Shop. It is so effortlessly clean, classic, and always chic. I love that you could just put on a pop color of earrings and heels and call your look complete.
Want to make a bold impression? Then the Freshwater Pearl dress is for you. A wide neck collar dress that comes together to form a bow at the base of the neck makes a stunning and lasting impression. This dress works best for women with athletic or pear bodytypes.
Palatine Hill, a white dress with an asymmetrical neckline, has so many options for wear. It could be a great dress for the office and easily transitions to night, I would definitely wear this to any date, whether it was a picnic or a fancy restaurant.
Trade Winds, a white pleated bodice dress, is great for hot days in the summer because it really breathes with the light weight cotton. Trade Winds flatters the body by emphasizing the waist then having evolving into an A-line skirt.
