color lovin’.

If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen my newly BLUE hair.

No, I didn’t actually dye my hair blue (although, it IS quite trendy right now according to Pinterest…). That optical illusion is thanks to Shimmering Lights, odd lighting, and a cool-toned filter. I’d never forsake my beloved blonde, but the

scenes from the weekend.

(…AKA, mostly food pics. That okay?)

Over the weekend my two college best friends/roommates Chrissy and Nicole came to visit me! Back in the day we went by “GNC” – Gracie, Nicole, Chrissy. We thought we were just the coolest, haha.

On Saturday it was gorgeous out, so we spent as much of the day

rut the heck? 4 ways to get out of a rut.

Have you ever felt like you’re in a rut? Like you’re just feeling off for no specific reason? My guess is of course you have, because you’re a human being.

Recently I had to come to terms with the fact that I was in a rut for much longer than I realized. If I’m being

ALL CAPS necessary.

If you’ve ever wondered why I love makeup so much, it’s because MY FACE DISAPPEARS WITHOUT IT.


Yesterday I made the dumb decision to go to the specialty food store when I didn’t really need anything. I proceeded to make the dumb decision of spending $10 on wraps.

I’m sorry, wrawps.

Good morning, and happy Wednesday!

Side note – I can never decide if I love or hate the phrase “happy [insert day of the week].” When did that even become a thing…?

So yes, you read that right – you’re about to watch me in all of my low quality (for now), YouTube-in’ glory. You’ve

#LEAN14: vegan & gluten free cookie dough for one.

I’m a sucker for single serving recipes.

…especially when they include two of the best words in the English language: COOKIE. DOUGH.

Needless to say, when I saw this healthier single serving recipe for vegan cookie dough on Pinterest, I knew it was one I had to try.

I made some changes to that

Let’s just put this out on the table. I kind of hate myself for how obnoxious my new phone cover is.

My “closet” is slowly but surely starting to look a bit more spring-like too.

Hi hi, happy Saturday!

So I usually try to keep weekend posts pretty lighthearted, but there’s something I’ve been wanted to address lately. I’m assuming the title of this post gave it away…

I’ve gotten a bit of flack recently for posting sponsored content, so I wanted to address the topic straight up. I’m not

Kale and Quinoa Minestrone

Yesterday I made a big batch of delicious Kale and Quinoa Minestrone. Since the Northeast is apparently refusing to leave winter, I figured I’d at least embrace one last chance to make a big comforting meal.

This recipe is a great one – definitely recommended.

I also went through piles and piles of
