August 21, 2019

Here’s a fun new update I never thought I’d be writing – I’m dating an Irishman. Turns out I’m a sucker for an accent, but aren’t we all?

My boyfriend grew up on a sheep farm in the west of Ireland (yeah he’s authentic) and one day I asked him what his favorite memory from home was.

I found that there are definitely ways to do this- without feeling like you’re depriving yourself or eating unhealthy for convenience! Check out the recipes I used for a month below.

August 29, 2018


Don’t get me wrong, I am a firm believer in the concepts of “treat yo self” “rosé all day” and YOLO, but I also believe in the 80/20 rule, so during the week I like to shift my focus to healthy alternatives that taste just as good as the treat I’m craving. I figured I can’t be alone in this feeling, so without further adieu, here are my top five tasty alternatives that curb my cravings, while keeping me on track: Continue Reading

Escaping The City- A Weekend in Lake Geneva, WI

July 25, 2018


Sometimes you just have to escape the city. The pavement gets too hot, the hustle and bustle becomes suffocating, and no matter where you go, you are never truly alone. So when my dear friend Paige invited my girlfriends and me up to her lake house for the weekend, I was packed before she could even send over the address.  Continue Reading

Mexican Quinoa Breakfast Bowls

May 21, 2018


I love throwing a bunch of things into a bowl, topping them with a fried egg and calling it breakfast. Recently- I was in Phoenix for a much overdue vacation, and while I was there I had some damn tasty Mexican food. So, when I got back and did my weekly grocery shop, I was inspired to plan a week’s worth of Mexican inspired brekkie.  Continue Reading
