Call Of The Owl: Owlene

Meet Owlene, SkinOwl’s beauty buff mascot! You might recognize this purple
beauty from our logo. Owlene travels the globe looking for Owl Inspirations!
From time to time, she reports back to us and lets us know what’s happening in
the “Owl World.”  She comes across everything from exotic Owls in
their natural environment to useful (and adorable!) products that come in the
shape of an Owl!
So, when you see her appear on the blog like this…

You’ll know that Owlene has given it her stamp of approval!
Of course, Owlene is very busy, so if YOU see any fun and unique Owl decor while out shopping (or any other cool Owls in nature), then don’t be shy, show us and we’ll run it by Owlene.  If she likes it, we’ll share it with our followers and give it Owlene’s Stamp of Approval!
Happy Hunting!

Citrus Salad with Yogurt Dressing

1 grapefruit

1 orange

1 blood orange

1 tablespoon greek yogurt

1 tablespoon finely diced onion

1/4 cup (or slightly less) citrus juices

1 teaspoon honey

a few pinches of chopped, fresh mint

Remove the rind from the fruit and cut into thin slices, reserving the
juices. If you have a couple slices that are not the prettiest use them
for their juice. Waste not, want not. In a small bowl stir together the
yogurt, citrus juice, honey and chopped onion. Sprinkle over the citrus
and top with a little mint. Enjoy as a fancy starter or side dish this
season!
