Looking for a cool gift for Father’s Day? The Social Dept has it! Based out of Akron, OH, The Social Dept offers a wide range of Midwestern themed shirts which you will absolutely love. Not from Ohio – don’t worry, they offer shirts for all the other states too!
We found this company at the Cleveland Flea just last weekend. They had a great selection which made it difficult to choose from. You can visit their store in Cuyahoga Falls on Front Street or shop online at www.thesocialdept.com/.
Take a look – you won’t be disappointed – and neither will dad 😉

Looking for a low-calorie cocktail? This past weekend we tried Be Mixed mixers. Be Mixed mixers have no sugar and no calories. Yep, you read that right – zero! So, if you add a shot of 80 proof vodka, you’re talking a total of 97 calories per drink (or 194 calories if you sneak in another ;).
Be Mixed offers three flavors; Ginger Lime, Cucumber Mint, and Margarita. We at Nearly All Things especially liked the Margarita flavor mixer with a shot or two of tequila, but the rest of our group was split over the Ginger Lime and Cucumber Mint. So, our recommendation – try the sample pack and decide on your own 🙂
NearlyAllThings subscribers get $5 off your order when you use the code “WELCOME” with your order.
Block heels are in right now and leopard is always in (in my book anyway). Leopard adds just that little bit of funk! Try it with just a white tee or tank and a pair of cute jeans and bam – funky and cool!

We have recreated this yummy smoothie by Daily Harvest a smoothie delivery service. I tried the service and it was awesome but I felt like for me it was not a necessity since I like to make them myself and I have the time. If that is not you, then get the service.
I cut up several zucchini and froze them so I could have them handy.
My version below:
1/2 cup zucchini
Tablespoon pumpkin seeds
1 tablespoon cacao
1 tablespoon coconut oil
Scoop vanilla protein
1/2 cup almond milk or milk of choice
Add ice and blend away
This turns into a thick, rich, creamy smoothie -so good! Even my 10 year old liked it- bonus! Just don’t let them see you make it 😉
Friends of ours shared a pic of Bellini Pops on their Facebook page and we at Nearly All Things immediately hit the web to buy some. Guess what – they aren’t available in the U.S. – bummer! There are a couple of companies making cocktail popsicles here, but most were sold out prior to Memorial Weekend. Soooo – I decided to make my own! This was inspired by our friend Allison’s watermelon cucumber cocktail – which was DELISH – thanks Allison!
2 heaping cups of cubed watermelon
2 tbsp diced cucumber – My first couple of batches had too much cucumber – not recommended! I also was happier with a normal cucumber rather than an English Cucumber (which is shown in the video below)
1 1/2 shots vodka – or go for 2 if 1 1/2 just doesn’t seem like enough 😉
You will also need:
Small funnel – I bought an Icicle Funnel from Amazon (shown below) and it worked great and was super easy to use – comes in a set of 2.
Once you have the tools, have fun with this! Try your own concoctions – Pinterest has a lot of great ideas too. Be sure to come back and comment if you find any other winners! Here’s a video of my first attempt at making them. We are getting crazy hi-tech here people!
