5 Summer Pinterest Recipes to Try

If you’ve seen me since I moved out, then you’ve probably heard me say what a challenge it is to cook for one. I’m not that much of a leftovers person (don’t judge), but I’m slowly learning that I’m bound to have leftovers when I’m cooking for myself. And, since I live alone, I have to make sure my food gets eaten. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve thrown things out that have been sitting in my fridge for too long.

5 Summer Pinterest Recipes

One thing I do love now that I live alone is trying different recipes. You might’ve seen that I tend to pin as much food as I do fashion. I’m sharing some of the recipes I’ve pinned recently that I think will be delicious summer meals. I love that  I can easily adjust these for one person.

I linked directly to the recipe rather than the Pin in case anyone reading this doesn’t have Pinterest. And if you do, make sure you’re following me! Continue Reading

What to Do When You’re in a Funk

Waffles and Coffee

I talked a little bit about my radio silence on the blog last week. And while I’ve gotten a bit better at not feeling like I have to justify when I can’t get a post up, I wanted to be honest about why I took a few days off.

Three Little Things I Do to Treat Myself

Coffee and Magazine

We’ve talked a little before about things we can do to become the best version of ourselves. I’ve shared productivity hacks that help me get through each week, and little lifestyle changes that can have a big impact. (I’m still working on #4, but that’s a different post for a different day.) I firmly believe that anything you do that makes you feel happy should be a part of your regular routine.

Here are the little things I do to treat myself, and ones that maybe you should try too. Continue Reading

Working Towards Happiness in the New Year

Flowers on a Table

While I think any time of year is great for setting goals, there is definitely something about a new year and a fresh perspective. I was working out with my mom on New Year’s Day, and we were talking about resolutions. I hadn’t really given it much thought, but I did reply with one simple answer, “Be happy.”

A feeling rather than a goal

To me, this encompasses a lot of things. Saying yes to things that excite me and make me happy. Trying new things that might scare me, knowing I’ll be glad that I tried. Whether it’s personally or professionally, I want to be happy and content in whatever I’m doing in 2017. Life’s too short to be anything but happy. I guess you could say that rather than setting a goal, I’m working towards a feeling. Continue Reading
