17 Super Bowl Recipes That Are Actually Healthy

Hope I don’t upset anyone when I say that I have no idea which teams are playing in the Super Bowl this year (and I actually had to google the date. Oops!)

Claire’s Colorful Vintage Bungalow

Today’s home tour holds a special place in my heart. Now I realize that this sounds like a line from a cheesy romance novel, but I truly believe interior stylist Claire Brody and I were destined to cross paths. Shorty after moving to Austin 6 months ago, I stumbled upon her Instagram account and was immediately drawn to her refreshing style. It was different (in […]

Healthy Frozen Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Let me start by saying that ice cream and iced coffee are two of my favorite things on the planet.

Healthy Caramel Apples

One of my favorite elements on the table at our wickedly gorgeous Halloween dinner party were the delicious and surprisingly healthy caramel apples that nixed the butter and sugar, but still felt like a major treat (because it is Halloween, after all.) The “caramel” sauce is made from medjool dates and coconut oil for the most addictive all-natural sweetness —  a few of the girls loved this […]

Beatlemania Group Costume

It was just over 50 years ago when a record-breaking 73 million Americans tuned into the Ed Sullivan show to watch the live debut of a Britain band who called themselves the Beatles. Soon, lives everywhere would be changed forever and especially so for young and impressionable teenage girls. As pictures from concerts surfaced, mobs […]

DIY Synchronized Swimmers Group Costume

Along with the conclusion of the Summer olympics also came the withdrawals associated with having to wait another four years until cheering on our favorite athletes again.

Vanilla Fig Smoothie With Cinnamon Whipped Cream

 My love affair with figs started just a few months ago after trying them for the first time (I know, late to the game) and now I’m doing my best to make-up for lost time by including them in just about everything I make — which is totally doable given their mildly sweet and versatile flavor. Not only are […]
