Valentine’s Day 2018 Roundup

The past couple of weeks have been a bit rough around here. Mr. Awesome was sick and then the internet has been down for a bit. (I’ve been working on this post for a few weeks now but couldn’t post it.) Then my computer died… eek! Thankfully all seems to be better now and I am trying to learn the ins and outs of my new computer.

Valentine’s day is just around the corner so I wanted to share a couple of ideas and deals that I’ve found and some that I have tried out myself. (This post does contain affiliate links.) I’ll update this list if I find any other really good deals too!

Judy Luxury Designer Bracelet Rose Gold Color

As many of you know I am an avid square dancer. I also love to dress up in my fancy square dance outfits but no outfit is complete without a couple of pieces of nice jewelry. I am constantly on the lookout for affordable trendy pieces to compliment my various outfits and I was excited when I was given the opportunity to try out this lovely bracelet by Judy Luxury, which is an online fashion store specializing in affordable fashion items for women.


I am in love with all things rose gold colored here lately and this bracelet is no exception. This beautiful Judy Luxury Designer Bracelet Rose Gold Color is made of titanium and its variety of patterns looks great with many different outfits that I have. This delicate bracelet has quickly become a favorite of mine and I look forward to wearing it with many different outfits on many different occasions in the upcoming year.


Judy Luxury also has a wide variety of handbags, wallets, belts, jewelry, and other products to keep you looking your best without breaking the bank. Be sure to check them out here to take a peek at the other beautiful pieces they have.


Strawberry Cream Cake

The kids love strawberries, cool whip, and cake so this recipe is always a winner. The colors are so pretty that it makes it a special treat perfect for Valentine’s Day too.

Strawberry Cream Cake


  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/3 c. water
  • 1 t. almond extract (optional)
  • 1- 8 oz container of whipped topping
  • 1/2 c. – 1 c. strawberry jam
  • 1-2 c. fresh strawberries


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease and flour two 8-inch cake pans.

Mix the cake mix, eggs, water, and almond extract until moistened. Then beat at medium speed for 2 minutes.

Pour batter into cake pans.

Bake 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Let the cakes cool to room temperature. Then slice each layer horizontally into halves.

Place one cake layer on a serving plate. Spread with an even layer of jam and then repeat with the remaining cake layers. (you may need to add a small amount of water to the jam to make it easier to spread)

Spread the whipped topping over the top and sides of cake. Garnish with fresh strawberries.

Serve immediately or refrigerate until serving.
