Almond Flour Lemon Olive Oil Cake

Hi all! I’ve been making a version of this almond flour cake for a couple years now. It’s one of my favorite things to whip up when I want a treat, but don’t want all the sugar and flour. I originally adapted this recipe from one Goop.com posted a few years ago. But, when I […]

Grapefruit + Rose Cocktail

Summer is in high gear right now and the temps are even higher. Most of our weekday afternoons and all of our weekends are spent at the pool or on the beach (yes, we are some of those annoying people who live steps away from white sand and crystal clear water). When it comes to […]

Latest obsession: podcasts

I recently dove into the podcast world. I’ve always heard others talk about them and friends rave about the ones they were currently into, but I never quite understood them. Sooo they are basically just audiobooks right? No. Not at all. After all the hype, I finally decided to give them a try. At first, […]

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 […]

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 […]

||THE L I S T||

It’s the same thing every Sunday (or whatever day you do your grocery shopping) when you go to the store and just wander around and have no clue what to buy. You drag your feet down every isle and just vastly stare at all the goodies. Finally leaving with a bunch of random items you […]

Top it Off 

When it comes to sun protection, hats (after sunscreen, of course) are my main go-to. No matter if it’s 10 degrees or a stifling 100 out there, this face is always covered. We ladies put too much effort into our daily skincare regimen to have it all undone by those fierce rays.  I used to […]
