Kate Middleton's Perfume

Quick! Raise your hand if you wanted to be just like Kate Middleton when she married Prince William on April 29th. Hands raised? Yeah, me too!

Alas, we all cannot be the new Duchess of Cambridge, but we can smell like her! Yes, it has been relased--much to the delight of CopyKates like me--that Kate wore White Gardenia Petals by Illuminum. Now it is not available until July in the United States from Lucky Scent.com and is $140 a bottle. Okay, a little *steep* but I am intrigued...as I am with all things Kate...Carry on.

Watermelon and Tomato Salad

Okay so I have been rather distracted with the *Royal Wedding* (by the way, so happy the Duke and Duchess are on their honeymoon right now but I digress) so I am back and bringing you a delightful, light, refreshing recipe for Watermelon and Tomato Salad!

Now don't dismiss--yes it sounds incredibly weird--but the combo is really good together. Swear on my love of Kate & Pippa fashion it is true!

Watermelon and Tomato Salad

*Seedless Watermelon, cut into cubes
*Grape or Cherry Tomatoes
*Tomatoes of your choice, sliced (I used off the vine, but can be Roma, Heirloom, etc.)
*Herb Salad Mix
*Cherve Goat Cheese, crumbled
*1/4 cup Olive Oil
*3 TBSP Balsamic Vinegar
*1 TBSP Agave Nectar
*Fresh cracked pepper

Make your dressing by whisking olive oil, vinegar and nectar in a small bowl. Set aside.

Arrange greens on plate. Add some watermelon, cherry tomatoes, and sliced tomatoes. Sprinke goat cheese over the top. Grind pepper over your salad. Drizzle some dressing over it and viola! Your salad is ready. Enjoy!
