Summer Solstice in Cleveland.

Do you have a season? You know what I mean, the time of year when you come to life? I call it my “Summer Self”. It’s when I’m the best version of me, it’s when my limitless potential starts to show. This blog is #sponsored by Atheta, and all opinions and thoughts are my own….

Burger Mood: 365 Days a Year

Suns out Grills Out!! Last night I threw down in my friends backyard, Fourth of July Style. I’m a huge fan of all the classic cook-out-meals, but I wanted to put a few fun and healthier spins on a big ol’ grilled dinner. I went with a build your own burger bar with a few…

If you’ve seen me on Instagram, you’ve seen me pour up a frothy coffee almost daily! I drink coffee for two reasons, the morning ritual, and the taste. I  don’t personally feel like I need coffee to function, and often times I drink decaf! If you love coffee, you should try this morning pick me…

The Nutty Parts of 2018.

What’s in my pool bag?!

Are you sick of me screaming about how warm and sunny it is here in Florida? I cannot get over how this splash of sunshine mid Cleveland Winter/Spring is changing my mood. Vitamin D is a real game changer for this girl, let me tell you! (hi Dad!) I’m here for the week hanging with…

Banana Protein Nice-Cream Bites.

I’m really rushing warm weather over here. I know!! Between being in the Florida sunshine and making summer plans, I’m craving frozen sweet treats and sun kissed skin! Y’all know me. I don’t mess with high sugar desserts. Not because they aren’t magical and perfect, but post bariatric surgery, sugar just isn’t a friend anymore….

Starting Over Looks Like This….

I wasn’t sure that I would ever write this blog, yet here I am, pouring myself a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, and anxiously sitting in front of my keyboard. Sharing your life on social media looks glamorous on the outside, all the surprise packages in the mail, the sponsored posts, the event invites, the smiling…

Cold Winter? Snow Problem!

Dairy Free Cauliflower Chowder

Hi Friends! It’s getting to be that point in the winter where I am desperately trying to wear flip flops on rainy 40+ days, but also wanting to drown in big mugs of warm soup. Some days it’s dreary, and other days smells like spring, but I can’t seem to switch over just yet! Does…

winter hands.

Hi Friends! Happy Tuesday! Today I’m talking winter skincare. I know we all have different skin, different ideas and routines, but today I’m sharing something that works for me. In Cleveland, the winters are brutal, not only on our souls, but on our skin. &, As a personal chef, aka someone feeding people constantly, meaning I’m…

Tips for Trying New Workouts & being #upforanything
