Nut Milk Enthusiast

I am a Nut Milk Enthusiast. I love nut milk in my smoothies, in my tea, or straight up. However until recently I couldn’t find a nut milk that measured up to my very high standards. The commercial kinds are filled with WAY to many nasties for me, and my own homemade variety left me with too much almond pulp to deal with. A little almond pulp is ok, a lifetime supply taking up your whole freezer is not.

I Love a Good Bar

It is no secret that I am a fan of easy, healthy snacks. At any given time you can find me with a large assortment of goodies in my purse, from crudite to dark chocolate. I never like to be caught without something to keep me from getting hangry (hungry and angry).

Kitchen Sink Herb Salad

In my fridge you will always find one or two types of fresh herbs in a glass, as if they were a flower arrangement. Storing them this way not only keeps my fridge smelling nice but also keeps them fresher, longer. I always like to keep some combination of mint, parsley, and cilantro on hand to use in my juices, smoothies and salads.

Spring Beauty Trends- The Smoky

I am always looking for a quick and easy makeup look to wear out to dinner, to parties, or anywhere that requires a little more luxe than the everyday. At the end of a busy day I rarely save enough time to get glam for a night out. I usually have the best intentions to leave myself a full hour for outfit choosing, hairstyling and makeup time but to be honest this rarely happens. More often than not my getting ready routine looks like a scene from a Muppet movie, with me playing a frantic Miss Piggy juggling dresses, curlers and makeup.

Chicago Recap Part Two- Green Festival

On Saturday morning we woke up to cold, fog and rain in Chicago. All of our lofty plans for bike rides around the lake and lots of window shopping were not to be. Luckily, while flipping through the tourist magazine in our hotel room I discovered that the Chicago Green Festival was going on right down the road at Navy Pier. Lots of green products under one roof for me to try? Perfect!

Spring Beauty Trends- Orange Story

I loved orange long before Pantone named Tangerine Tango the Color of the Year. It’s fun, vibrant, happy and poppy. I love it so much that my entire office is orange (with hints of cream, brown, purple and pink), and one of the main decor colors for my wedding was orange. Like I said, I love orange.
