Prime Day Finds

Prime Day is here (and almost over!) again! I spent hours online combing through the deals and talking myself in and out of putting items in my basket. Ultimately, I remembered I’m poor, so I only walked away with a few items. See my tiny haul and some Prime Day tips for this holiest of online holidays!

May Favorites

Okay… so I know we’re already about halfway through June, but hear me out… I’m a teacher and my school gets out way late, so I’ve been up to my eyeballs in grading and putting out fires (mostly metaphorical ones) for the last few weeks. I only just had the brain power and time to sit down and write about my May favorites, and I’m so sad that it’s so late, but I do love these items and I really think they’re worth sharing.

Amazon Summer Haul

You know how much I love Amazon, and as usual, they came through for me. I’ve listed my summer haul of affordable finds that I can’t wait to wear all summer long. To see my full try on and get my detailed take on each piece, see my IGTV post!

Dutch Apple Pie

I know people scoff at the phrase “easy as pie” because making pie doesn’t seem all that easy… but this Dutch Apple is so worth the work. I guarantee this pie will be better than any that you buy in a store, and it’s so good that it will have you rethinking the whole “apple pie is for fall” thing.

Matcha Protein Smoothie

I’ve always been a very on the go person, and caffeine is my favorite food group, so this Matcha Protein Smoothie is perfect for me. This smoothie has it all — fruit, protein, a touch of sweetness from the honey, and a jolt of caffeine from the matcha. 

April Favorites

April is drawing to a close, so it’s time channel my inner Maria and share a few of my favorite things from this month.

*Cue me twirling around on a mountain top holding my April Favorites a la The Sound of Music.*

Deviled Eggs Two Ways

Now that Easter is over, you might find yourself up to your ears with prettily-colored hard-boiled eggs. Not sure what to do with them all? I’ve got two deviled eggs recipes — Classic and Garlic Aioli (mayo-free!) — right here. These eggs are so good, that you may actually want to boil a few more.

Blue and White Easter Dress Roundup

For Easter this year, I brought two kinds of cupcakes and my spring dress game. I love this blue and white dress, which was made for sunny spring days, and I got tons of compliments on it. Since so many people asked about it, I found some similar pieces and linked them here. Most are in the $20-$30 price range!

Orange Cardamom Rolls

These Orange Cardamom Rolls combine my childhood love for orange cinnamon rolls and my newfound obsession with cardamom into one deliciously fluffy and flavorful breakfast treat. Top these fluffy buns off with gooey, zesty, orange cream cheese frosting, and you’ll be ruined for all other cinnamon rolls… I’m only a little sorry about that.

Two Days in Denver

One of my best friends moved to Colorado some time ago, but I was only recently able to take advantage of her generous invitation to come stay with her for a long weekend. It took a while for us to finally get out there, but it was a blast and worth the wait. Not only was the weather great , but we went to an awesome Dodgers and Rockies game, went to our first movie party, and enjoyed more than our fair share of delicious local beer and food. Here is our two-day itinerary, including where and what we ate!
