Christmas Jammies

Christmas Jammies

IT's DECEMBER!!! My favorite time of year is finally here, and I have probably said that 100 times already and will probably say it 100 more, but I just CAN NOT get enough of the holiday season. I start the Christmas celebrations typically Nov 1st… the Christmas music is on, I start watching my Hallmark movies, I start rotating all my favorite and festive Christmas Jammies and joy is all around! There is nothing like the holiday spirit to me, it fills me up inside and brings me a since of nostalgia, hope, and childlike excitement that always reminds me to…

Hi babes, I hope you all are having a great Monday and start to the week so far. It has already been a busy start for me.

I have been really excited to get this post up because after sharing with you all about my Rheumatoid Arthrtis journey I got such a positive response and connected with so many…

Inflammation: What It Is & How To Reduce Inflammation In The Body

What is Inflammation? “Inflammation is a condition in which a part of the body becomes reddened, swollen, hot, and painful, often due to a reaction from an injury or infection!” Inflammation is commonly looked at from the outside as a bruise or a swollen joint, muscle etc. Which can also be known as acute inflammation! However, inflammation is also working from the inside out and affecting your entire body. When you have acute inflammation, it is not necessarily all bad as it is your body’s natural response to protect itself and help it begin the healing process. Acute vs. Chronic…

Tomato and Burrata Summer Salad

Tomato and Burrata Summer Salad

Tomato and Burrata Salad Trying to beat the heat seems impossible these days as the temperatures are a-risssinng, so I am always trying to stay hydrated and eat refreshing foods. Nothing is more refreshing to me than a tomato and burrata salad, with simple olive oil and balsamic, it just hits the spot. This summer I thought I would elevate this simple salad and give it a little more depth with... salty, spicy and even sweeter notes. Because the heat is so draining it’s important to not only drink water but it helps if you’re eating foods with higher water…

Kale Salad with Chicken

Kale Salad with Chicken

Happy Monday Babes!! After a weekend in Vegas I am looking forward to a fresh start and getting back to my routine more than ever, I've been craving all things healthy and green since my trip!! Whenever I get back to town I typically make my kale salad with chicken to jump start my week.

red, white, and blue-berry chia seed pudding

Happy Thursday babes, I am getting ready to leave for Vegas tomorrow but was so excited to get this recipe up for you guys. Berry & Coconut Chia Seed Pudding From overnight oats to chia seed pudding, I am all about dessert like foods for breakfast. Last year I really got into overnight oats and after eating that on and off every week I got a little tired of oatmeal for a while. After switching up my breakfast routine I did miss that sweetness and puddling like bite that overnight oats gave me. I have known about chia seed pudding…

Summer Stone Fruit Salad

Summer Stone Fruit Salad

Happy Monday Babes, I am getting ready to leave for California tomorrow and cannot wait. Fourth of July celebrations, the ocean breeze, cooler temperatures, BBQs on the beach and lots of family time. One thing I love to do is cook with my family on the beach but I love making things that are easy and quick so I can spend less time in the kitchen and more time with my family. While I typically don't mind being in the kitchen, when I am at the beach I want to be outside as much as I can. So I'll be…

Bucket Bags

Happy Sunday babes! I am currently at The Henry working on up coming blog posts, blogging schedules and photo editing, with one of my girlfriends and just trying to get ahead. I love coming to coffee shops and working with friends as we are always brainstorming new ideas for our own businesses and its fun to bounce ideas off each other.  Sunday is definitely a work all day kind of day as Saturday I relaxed to the max. No joke I took 3 naps. Saturday night we went out to a friends party at Hotel Adeline and Friday cooked at…

Family Traditions

Family Traditions

Family Traditions Happy first day of summer babes! I can’t believe I am writing that, as it seemed like only yesterday we were closing out the new year! As much as I don’t like the heat that the summer brings I look forward to summer every year to spend time with my family in our favorite place. Having just gotten back from La Jolla this week and summer kicking off today I thought it would be the perfect time to talk about tradition. Tradition…specifically family traditions are something I cherish more than anything and something I cannot wait to pass…
