Reese Witherspoon's Spiced Tea Recipe - Makes a great gift!

"My grandmother had this spiced tea recipe — it's very southern. You take instant powdered tea, a can of Tang, a can of powdered lemonade, and you mix them all together with some nutmeg and cinnamon. I'm telling you, southern people will know this recipe. And you shake it all up, then you put it in a Mason jar, and put a piece of fabric on top and a piece of ribbon around it. Then, whenever you want, just put two scoops in hot water. It's the most delicious thing in the world."

I made it as an extra gift for the sisters.... it is quite good if I say so myself : )

The 1930's when less was more. And, there was a little more to the swimsuit. As you can see, a one piece full coverage IS sexy!

The beautiful Keira Knightley is taking a leap in her new film Atonement. Pirates of the Carribean. Keira is going retro for her new movie Atonement. It’s being hailed as the big British period drama of the year in Joe Wright's adaptation of Ian McEwan's best selling novel..

Knightley plays Cecilia Tallis, a young woman spending the summer on her family’s country estate. Also starring in the film is James McAvoy (Becoming Jane, The Chronicles of Narnia - The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe).

Oscar hopeful buzz is already in the air and Keira will bring an authenticity to the role that only she can pull off. She looks the part and executes the scenes flawlessly, according to an insider.
