Adaptogens

Every morning I wake up and add a scope of cordyceps to my cuppa joe or matcha latte. Then take an ashwaganda and rhodiola supplement with my smoothie. When I talk about my love for adaptogens on social media, I always get the “uhh what the h*ll is that?” message. So, let’s just start from […]

Warm White Bean Arugula Salad

My favorite crop season…and season in general…is upon us. Fall. My husband plants all my favorite things this time of the year. Arugula, kale, spinach, broccoli, all the greens. Since we have an abundance of them in our garden, I’m always looking for new ways to use them. Arugula is my favorite leafy green. It […]

d r y b r u s h i n g

So a few years ago my mom went to Europe and brought me back this wooden brush. She tried to explain to me how to use it, but it honestly just looked like a regular brush to me. I hung on my bathroom wall hook and used it as decoration. It wasn't until after my […]

Making a statement

My favorite outfit consist of destroyed Levi's with a white top. So in order to make these basics sing, I'm always looking for big statements. Since it's summer and I live at the beach, shoes are optional so my next go-to is earrings. I've always been one for dainty jewels, but this summer's statement trend […]

minimalist summer favorites 

I have a serious love/hate relationship with summer. Hats, woven bags, simple and timeless basics are my favorite clothing pieces. However, I’m not one for scorching temperatures.

Besides popping the bubbly, it is the easiest, most refreshing addition to your poolside booze fest.  Now, if you’ve read my past post about coconuts you […]

•green• spring pea pasta 

Last weekend was the first one following a long strand of busy weekends where we got to stay home with no plans and just relax. We had been going nonstop with holidays, birthdays, and out of town events. It felt so amazing to stay in lounge clothes and do (or not do for that matter) […]

My Favorite Way to Style a Home

I am not a reader. Never have been, and despite a lot of effort, probably never will be. I start a book and by the end of the first chapter my focus is completely gone and end up having to start from the beginning. This lack of reading love, however, hasn’t stopped me from filling […]

Cayman Islands 

A month ago Blake and I had the amazing opportunity of going to the Cayman Islands. It was pretty last minute (three weeks notice and in parentland that’s not much time to plan for). My husband won Presidents Club with his company and as a reward they sent us to the breathtakingly beautiful Kimpton Seafire […]

Superfood Series: m a c a

For the last post of my Superfood Series I chose what is arguably my favorite. Maca powder. I planned on posting this at an earlier date, but my house was struck with a stomach bug and daddy and daughter were both down meaning mom was on nurse duty. So without further ado, I present to […]
