• DIY Sequin Do Not Disturb Hat

    do-not-disturb-9

    Hi guys! Today i’m back with a really fun DIY that is perfect for the upcoming summer season. Lately, i’ve been seeing these hats EVERYWHERE for super expensive price tags. While they’re incredibly cute, I truly just couldn’t bring myself to spend over $50 on a hat. #cheap

    Trying to ball on a budget, I decided to DIY my own hat. It turned out that it was SUPER easy to make (promise) and the process takes under 30 minutes in total. Also, all of the supplies needed to make it totaled at around $15. So cheap, right? I know i’m going to be wearing this beauty all summer long to keep the sun out of my eyes when i’m baking on the beach. Please let me know if you decide to make it yourself! Can’t wait to see what you guys create. Xo.

  • Philly’s Best Vegan Eats

    gallery-img-04-445x667

    When I initially changed my diet, my first thought was centered around how much I was giving up. Truly, I was that person who always thought, “I don’t understand how people go vegan or vegetarian, they’re missing out on so much!!” (dramatic I know). Flash forward years later: I’ve found that I was completely wrong & that I truly didn’t have to give up anything I loved to sustain this lifestyle. With all of the dairy-free / vegan products that are available now-a-days, it’s impossible to feel like you’re missing out. Many of my friends can testify to the fact that I eat pizza, ice-cream, and cheese fries JUST as much as everyone else due to the amazing accommodations available today.

    Yah see, vegan food has a rough stigma. Often times, when people hear “vegan”, they think of some foreign a$$ vegetables that they wouldn’t be caught dead eating. I’m telling you, these restaurants aren’t anything of the sort. I’m talking fries, pizza, milkshakes, wings… all of your faves, just made with less animal products + more in sustainable ways. You can get down with that, right?

  • Asian Kale Salad

    asian-kale-salad

    Let’s be honest, salads get a bad rap. Most people think they’re boring, bland, and downright unappealing. The thing about salads are: you have to know how to make them good. This one in particular is pretty addicting. It’s loaded with sweet, tangy, and savory ingredients that give your tastebuds everything they are looking for. At the base of this salad is one of my fave leafy greens: kale. Kale is a powerhouse of nutrients that deserves to be eaten as often as possible. While it’s definitely a trendy vegetable, it’s easy to see why it’s so well liked.

    For example, kale is insanely low in calories coming in at only 36 cals per cup and has 0 grams of fat. That’s what i’m talking about. As an added bonus, it is great in aiding digestion due to being high in fiber. Lastly, it is incredibly high in iron (a lot higher than steak surprisingly), vitamin K (which prevents cancer), and has more calcium than milk per serving.

  • Striped Ruffle Romper

    Spring has sprung and I am truly feeling the happiest i’ve been in a while. There’s just something about being able to work from my porch, taking walks without a jacket, and driving with the windows down that makes my heart feel full. Spring also happens to be my favorite weather for fashion. In the winter you need too many layers, fall just leads in to winter, and summer is too damn hot (sweating every day? i’m good thanks). Spring is truly my cup of tea. (more…)
