Saturday, I decided to whip up some granola. We hadn’t had any in a while and I was cravings some. I ignored my typical recipe, threw together some of my favorite ingredients, and was more than thrilled with the results. Sadly, we finished about half already – trust me, it’s addictive. Typically, we eat this with a bit of homemade yogurt but since we didn’t have any on hand, we’ve been chowing it down by the handfuls. And with strawberries and a little ice cream last night – seriously amazing.
Side note – I’m not sure if you’ve noticed but the website has gotten another tweak, as promised earlier. We’ve put drop-down boxes on each of the topics at the top of the page so be sure to check them out! Hopefully this will make it easier to navigate recipes and fashion posts. A huge thanks to the hubs for helping me out with this!
Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!

After all the pinks and reds from this past weekend, we’re all ready for a change. Consider pastels. I think pastels in winter are the perfect way to stave off winter gloom and summer withdrawal. It’s nice to be able to bring out a few summer whites, mix them in with pastel sweaters and create…
Today’s recipe is a special one – it’s a family recipe for fattoush, the Lebanese salad that’s a mixture of veggies and fried pita chips. My mom used to make it growing up and I never truly appreciate it until I was much older. We love this salad – if you’ve never fried (or toasted…
It’s taken me quite a while but I finally got a pair of flared denim. Here’s why: every pair I tried on just didn’t fit right. Either they were bootcut jeans and were incorrectly labelled as flares or they weren’t the right wash, too dark like black jeans or too faded that it made me feel like I just…
On our trip to Key West, we stopped by a food truck serving tropical quesadillas. I discovered them through my trusty Trip Advisor, since I always read reviews on a restaurant before trying them out (the one time we didn’t, we had a case of food poisoning). The menu item that stuck out for me was their…
Day 1 of being back home and as always, the feeling is bittersweet. Sadness to end all travel but relief at being back home. These perforated espadrille sneakers were wonderful in Italy – they walked many streets and witnessed beautiful sights. Paired with vibrant red shorts and a split tunic, these sneakers are icing on the…
