Disclaimer: I am not, I repeat, NOT. a morning person. I’ll do pretty much anything to snooze a few extra minutes, like no joke will tell Siri to set an alarm for two minutes (about five times) before I get up. I then do as little as possible to get ready before heading out the door. My mascara is the one thing I can’t leave without putting on, so the first time I saw someone with lash extensions, I was immediately intrigued. Read more
One thing I’ve noticed since getting into cooking is that a ton of recipes call for herbs, and those herbs are usually what makes the food taste extra delicious. But I was always so lazy and cheap, did I really need to buy an entire bunch of parsley or basil just to use it as a garnish? Ugh, so wasteful. But once I gave in and stopped foregoing the herbs (read: got a real job after college), I realized what I was missing. Read more
Ok, before you read this entire post pronouncing Cueni in your head as quey-nee, I’ll make your life easier real quick. It’s pronounced Q-knee and as they say, “the name is difficult to say, the beer is harder to resist.” True.
So if you haven’t been to Dunedin yet, or you’re not a FL local, let me just say that you NEED to put it on your list as a day trip. Dunedin is the cutest little beach town full of shops, markets, and what is referred to by locals as the Beermuda Triangle of breweries. Read more
Honestly, there are very few things that girls love more than a boozy bachelorette brunch. In typical me/bridesmaid fashion, I decided to plan a mini bachelorette brunch at my apartment to kick off my friend Karly’s wedding month. I love a good challenge, so obviously I thought making this a surprise party would be the cherry on top to this bachelorette brunch idea. My friends are THOSE girls who group chat all day, so keeping this a secret was NOT an easy task for any of us. But of course, her tears of joy and countless “are you guys serious?” was well worth the hard work. Read more
Let’s face it, one of the best parts about having a dog (aside from the furry cuddling) is the luxury of going to the dog park to play with other peoples dogs. Besides the fresh air and endless supply of new dogs who are pumped about your existence, the dog park is a great place to meet new friends. I’ve seriously met some of my best friends in life at dog parks! Dog people are the best people, am I right??
I’ve always been fascinated by craft breweries. Not only because I love craft beer (which I do, a lot) but also because of the vibe that is typically carried through the entire brewery. Each brewery has it’s own identity, and it permeates through their beer, interior design style, logo/swag, and just overall aesthetic. When I stumbled upon Angry Chair Brewery, I knew I had to do a Brew Review. Read more
So I’ll be honest, this week’s been crazy and I haven’t had hardly any time for sticking to my blog schedule. BUT, a friend and I did throw a 4th birthday puppy party for our dogs (yes I know, crazy dog moms over here) last Sunday because they both turned four this month. They’re growing up so fast 🙁 Read more
I have a confession: I’m addicted to Instagram. Between my blog, work, personal, and my dog’s account (don’t judge me, you know my dog @thedailyharley is cute af) I literally have 4 accounts that I’m checking and adding content to all throughout the day. Besides the gram, there are endless Facebook feeds that I get sucked into reading, a million emails rolling in, Spotify playing non-stop, it just doesn’t end. It’s exhausting and makes my eyes bleed, but just like the rest of the human race, I can’t stop. Read more
If there’s one thing that (sort of) alleviates the Sunday Scaries, it’s going to bed knowing you have a full fridge of groceries and a meal plan for the week. Just me? Don’t lie, you know it sounds nice to not have to worry about what you are going to eat on Monday (or Tuesday thru Friday). Meal planning for the week is easy with the right strategy, so I’m here to teach you how to save money, eat healthier and stress less about your meal plan!Read more
If you saw last week’s post, you know that I’m all about results and not so much about resolutions. I feel like resolutions carry a lot of pressure with them and not usually a whole lot of meaning or execution, but working toward results/goals is more of a solid plan. So for my second post under the Resolutions vs. Results series, I give you the most important part: setting your goals and scheduling for success. Read more
