Shabby Apple Dress Giveaway

I have long admired Shabby Apple dresses, after seeing them featured on some of my favorite blogs over the years. They have such a great selection of silhouettes, colors, sizes — so much more stylish than my daily uniform of jeans and a t-shirt. And with spring in the air, isn’t it the perfect time […]

Danskos for Springtime!

I always get a little sad when I have to pack up my black Dansko clogs at the end of winter. (Hello – 80 degrees here yesterday!) I spotted these new Dansko Sanibels at the mall last week — the salesman described them as a cross between Danskos and Keds. The base is thick and […]

Make this dish.

It has been a good week for cooking. I was inspired by my trip to the Farmer’s Market, and all the beautiful vegetables I brought home, to try some new dishes. My favorite by far is this Warm Farro Salad with Roasted Vegetables. You know when you find something new to eat and you want […]

Biodegradable Paper Plates

Paper plates are a little bit of a guilty pleasure. Generally I do try to minimize my landfill contributions, but there are times when I just want to bust out the paper products and skip the dishes. SO, I was happy when Hefty (smart marketers that they are) contacted me and asked me to try […]

Kindness

My friend Carrie gave me the kindness button you see above for my birthday. I’ve since learned there’s a whole kindness movement behind these badges, which is quite inspiring. The purpose of these little guys is to hand them out to people — preferably unsuspecting strangersĀ  — when they do something kind (same idea as […]

"Homemade" Microwave Popcorn

A few years ago, I was inspired by this blog post about popcorn made from scratch. It made me realize how ridiculous it was to pay forĀ  nastily unnatural “butter-flavored” microwave popcorn, when I could be popping my own naked popcorn kernels and adding 100% real salt and butter myself. So here is how I […]
