Instagram Takeover with Half United!

Instagram Takeover with Half United

Happy FriYAY everyone!

I’m keeping it short today, only because I have a lot going on in preparation for some fun things that will be hitting the blog starting Monday.

Today, I’m over on Instagram taking over Half United’s account for the day! You all know how much I love brands that give back, and Half United does just that. A few weeks ago, I had the chance to spotlight Carmin, one of HU’s co-founders as she shared some of her tips and let us peek into a day At Work With her. Half United products provide at least seven meals for someone in need. Nothing makes me feel better than doing good simply by collecting things I would have purchased anyway.

You can follow my takeover today on their Instagram @HalfUnited! I’m so thrilled that I got the chance to take part in this collaboration and I hope you enjoy!

Are You a Future Thinker?

How do you plan for the future

 I consider myself to be an over thinker. I’m constantly taking stock of the things around me and figuring out how to alter or re-purpose things to better suit my needs and goals. No period will cause you to consider your future standings than the first few months after college graduation. The three areas that I’ve been honing in on… Read More

Bookshelf Update / 01

Bookshelf Update 01

A few months ago, I introduced the Ember & March bookshelf to you guys and saw an amazing response! Since then, I’ve tried to come up with a system for keeping it updated, getting reviews written and, most importantly, mapping out time to read and discover new books. My goal is to try and share at least two Bookshelf updates… Read More

Tuesday Morning Coffee


I’m finally starting to feel back into the swing of things. Meals are being planned, posts are being scheduled and emails are finally being sent and returned. Next step: replying to comments. I promise, I see you! My favorite part about setting back into my own regularly scheduled programming is the sense of accomplishment you feel after you finally start getting… Read More

Into the Swing of Things & a Breakfast Recipe

Baked Egg and Avocado Recipe

Last week’s radio silence definitely was not a planned intermission. I woke up in the middle of Tuesday night/Wednesday morning to my heart racing, hot flashes and itching intensely. Seconds later I also realized that my tongue was swollen. I was having an allergic reaction. The cause of which remains unknown. This wasn’t a foreign experience at all, something similar… Read More

instants 07 weekend eats

Do you ever feel that the weekends are just made for indulging in the bites we tend to avoid during the week in the name of “being good”? Once Friday night hits, I’m usually all about fried (or white) rice over brown, extra sauce on everything and not skimping on the bacon bits…but that’s just me. Or maybe it isn’t…. Read More

Sunday Morning Coffee 07.19


I’m trying to wrap my head around the fact that it’s nearly August. What? When? This Summer is seriously flying. After an exhausting week, it was great to have a relaxing weekend of Gilmore Girls binging and book reading. Sometimes it takes us reaching our limits to realize that it’s best for us to step back and make the best… Read More
