How To Have The Perfect Snow Day

This shop/post has been compensated by Collective Bias, INC. and The Coca-Cola Company, all opinions are mine alone. #FlavorsForYourMood #CollectiveBias

One of the best things about living in New England, is they cancel school/church/work at the most minimal amount of snow lol. Growing up in Utah, we could get like 2 feet of snow and NOTHING would be canceled. So, it has been fun to have so many snow days and be able to truly enjoy the snow from home! Turns out, Tucker LOVES the snow. We went to the dog park this morning and everyone was making snowballs and throwing them at their dogs hahaha. It was definitely a picturesque moment that I will always remember!


Anyway, here's my opinion on what makes a perfect snow day:

Step 1: Run to your nearest Walgreens and buy allllllll the Diet Coke®! I was excited to try the new  flavors. They are the same original Diet Coke flavor (it hasn't been altered), just with added yummy flavors like Mango, Cherry, etc. They cans also got a facelift which I think is A+. They created all these flavors to match whatever mood you are in (which is good because I go through all moods in a day lol). You can scan your finger to see what flavor matches your mood that day. Click here when on a mobile device and do it! It also gives you a digital coupon for buy one can get one can free! (Perf for a date night/snow day in with your bae.)


I was genuinely excited to participate in this campaign because I used to live in Utah and they have a lot of soda shops where you can get different flavors in your soda (a popular one is coconut and lime in Diet Coke, they call it "dirty Diet Coke"). It's a huge thing out there and there are so many shops that sell only soda and other treats, but it's pretty non-existent out here in Connecticut. I have definitely missed it. We used to go all the time and it was so fun!. So, I was happy to see that now I can get some fun flavors just down the street at Walgreens! My favorite flavor is Diet Coke® Fiesty Cherry (I actually kept drinking them before shooting these pictures so J had to keep going and getting more lol). J's favorite flavor is Diet Coke® Zesty Blood Orange.


Step 2: Build a sweet blanket fort! I used a bunch of tapestries and thumbtacks, but you can kick it old school with sheets and chairs, too! The last time we built a blanket fort was over New Year's when we were dating and I fell asleep before midnight lol. J took a picture of him toasting himself with me sleeping in the background and sent it to my family lol. It was too funny. 



Step 3: Watch a movie! We have been going through our list of movies we want to watch (there is like literally 100, yikes!). We watched Happy Death Day and Her this past weekend, and are watching 30 Days Of Night as I write this! 


Step 4: Try to enjoy the drinks and movie while your dog child attempts to attack you lol. Nah, in all reality he is pretty good these days. The key is just playing with him for like 10 minutes when he needs to play! Seriously it makes all the difference in the world!


Andddddd, that's it! Enjoy your snow day with your baes! Lemme know what Diet Coke flavor is your favorite if you have tried them!

How To Trick Your Dog Into Eating Healthy

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #ProPlanPossibilities #CollectiveBias

Do you ever want to get revenge on your dog? I do lol. Tucker is cute but also a rebel. When I saw this campaign for dog food with better ingredients, I wasn't sure if Tucker would like it, but was determined to trick him into it lol. 

So, step 1 of tricking your dog into liking food that is better for them: Take them to PetSmart and let them experience dog heaven/pick out their own food. Tucker was sniffing allllll the sniffs. We also saw a corgi and a bulldog puppy. It was a good day. 



We chose the Purina® Pro Plan® dog food because it provides nutrition in wet and dry products for different taste preferences, age, dietary considerations, or activity/lifestyle in for platforms for dogs. They also have grain-free or no corn, wheat, or soy options for those of you who want your dog to follow in your footsteps lol. They are backed by a team of over 400 scientists, nutritionists, behaviorists, and veterinarians... so no ingredient is unnecessary. Everything is precisely and purposefully selected. Find what formula is best for your dog here

Now, step 2: Introduce it to them in a neural environment to raise interest. (As you can see, interest was raised.)



Step 3: Build suspense. Make them wait for it. 


Step 4: Pour into bowl, while continuing to build suspense.


Step 5: Offer it to pupper. See if pupper takes bait... PUPPER TOOK BAIT.



Step 6: Take photo with pupper to use as collateral when he forgets how nice you are to him. 


Step 7: Take blackmail photo of pupper to show to dog friends when he misbehaves. 


Lol k but in all reality it was fun to give Tucker some yums! I feel like once you find out how someone treats their dog, that's all you really need to know about them!

Tailgating!

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.  I have been eating vegetarian for 7 years and I truly love and eat these products all the time! Let me know if you try them! #TailgateWithATwist #SeasonalSolutions #CollectiveBias

We had the cutest picnic this weekend! I have been dying to use my new picnic blanket, so we grabbed out fave veggie cuisine from Walmart and grilled it up for a little "homegating" party. Since we are busy with grad school and our puppy and work, we opted for some simple and quick recipes.


I try to eat mostly vegetarian and people are always like, "So, what can you eat if you don't eat meat?!" And I am always like, "EVERYTHING!" You can literally make all the same foods with veggie meat as you can with real meat, and it's way healthier and animal friendly :) Hence, my two favorites that I recreated:  pulled pork sandwiches and hot dogs haha. 

ALSO these are SO fast to whip up. If you're like me and feel so busy all the time  you KNOW how nice t is to have recipes that are good and also veryyyyy quick. So, just another reason to try some veggie cuisine.


If you want to try these recipes here is a rebate valid for MorningStar Farms® Frozen Veggie products. Buy 3 for any variety, any size. Click here for it! Also click here for recipe inspiration. 


This football pigs-in-a-blanket is my favorite thing. If you know anything about me you know that I am obsessed with hot dogs. These are literally so easy to make and so yummy!

Ingredients needed: 1 egg, 1 package of MorningStar Farms® Veggie Dogs, 1 package of croissant dough, mustard.

Step 1.) Roll out the croissant dough. Cut into strips. Cut the hot dogs into 3 pieces each. 
Step 2.) Wrap the hot dogs in the croissant dough and arrange in a football shape on a pan. Brush with egg wash.
Step 3.) Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes (or until golden brown). 
Step 4.) Add mustard in the shape of football strings (the white part). Enjoy!


Ok so if you know me, you know I am ALSO very obsessed with pulled pork. I am so excited Morningstar Farms has pulled pork now so I can still be veg friendly while eating one of my faves! These are also super quick and easy to make. 



Ingredients: buns, 1 package MorningStar Farms® Veggie Pulled Pork, bbq sauce.

Step 1.) Cook the pulled pork. I used the microwave and it literally took 3 minutes! So easy!
Step 2.) Grill the buns, add pork, and add bbq sauce! (And any other toppings you like to use, I am just old school.)
Step 3.) Enjoy!


Don't worry. Tucker was not left behind at this party. He was actually pretty good and sat for *mostly* the entire time we ate.



Me to Tucker: "Hey we are going to eat this food and I will give you occasional treats if you are good and sit down ok? Can you do that?"
Tucker: "TL;DR"

TIS THE SEASON

This shop/post has been compensated by Collective Bias, INC. and The Coca-Cola Company, all opinions are mine alone. #PlayPauseRefresh #CollectiveBias

TIS THE SEASON FOR THE BEST T.V. SHOWS. I swear to you, there are SO many good movies and shows out right now. Our weekends are basically spent catching up on our favorite shows with some treats. With how crazy school is right now, I'm definitely not complaining about the chill nights!


vitaminwater is my go to Coca-Cola product. I always get the orange flavor because it's just so. dang. good. Just yesterday I discovered there is a strawberry lemonade flavor and it is AMAZING.  

Enter the Coca-Cola sweepstakes here! You just need to:

1. Grab your fave Coca-Cola beverage and schedule your T.V. night.
2. Take a photo of how you enjoy Coca-Cola during T.V. night. (Make sure the program you are watching stays on your TV, but out of your photo.)
3. Share your photo on Twitter or Instagram with both #programyournight and #sweepstakes for a chance to win cool prizes!

Anyway, here's a lil' recipe for your next T.V. night! Buttered ranch popcorn (I may have munched on this while my camera charged because it was too good to wait for, so that's why it looks slightly depleted in the picture lol.)

Step 1: Pop some popcorn and grab a packet of ranch. 
Step 2: Melt 4 tbsp of butter and pour it over your popcorn. Sprinkle the ranch and mix well.
Step 3: Enjoy!


It's super easy to make, but way better than regular popcorn! At least I think so :).


V good opportunity to use my macro lens filters lol. Look at that buttery ranch popcorn goodness.


THE TRUE HEROES. I get a vitaminwater every Tuesday for the train home from school. They just have such a good flavor that doesn't leave me feeling too heavy? I don't know how to explain it, but I am a fan. 


If you have any good T.V. show recommendations, plz let me know!

XOXO

DIY Polaroid Memory Box









This DIY is super easy and quick!  Plus, it makes such a cute gift for Valentine’s Day, or any special occasion!

This is a cute, functional way to showcase all your favorite memories over the years through a unique memory box. Simply pull the tab and watch all your favorite memories unravel before your eyes. 




I got this wooden crate at Michael's for $1. I painted it white because I want it to be timeless, but any color would look good. I chose gray cardstock and cut it into strips slightly wider than my Polaroid photos. I glued the strips together with super glue and folded them accordion style. I added a little ribbon to the top of the pullout for easier access. Lastly, I peeled the backs off the Polaroid photos and stuck them to the cardstock. And that was it!



I got the cutest gold and pink tissue paper at Target and used it as wrapping. I think it turned out really cute and festive!

XOXO

Valentine's Gift Guide For Men

WHY ARE MEN THE WORST TO SHOP FOR! I feel like anything and everything they want is like $1,000 lol. #worst. Anyway, I really like making these collages now lol. I couldn't find any number graphics so I had to make these myself, but I think they turned out ok.



One / J is probably so sick of getting ties, but they are such an easy gift and look so good lol. I swear guys wearing suits look literally 3x better than they normally do. What's the girl equivalent for that? Make up maybe?

Two / I just got J this sushi roller and it is AMAZING. He loves making sushi but it's so hard to roll it and make it look good. This opens up and you load it up with your rice and fillings, close, and then push it out like a push pop. Then you can lie to everyone and say you rolled the sushi on your own and they will think you are a chef.

Three / Lovely Beards sent us some organic beard oil the other day and I love it! It would especially be nice if your guy has like a beard beard. It just smells nice. I feel like it's the Moroccan oil for beards haha. PLUS THAT PACKAGING. #typographygoals

Four / J NEEDS more sweats agh. Sweats are hard for me to buy because I feel like they are a waste of money? But they are so important to have lol. Primark is gold as always for stuff like this. I will honestly be so sad when/if we don't live near a by a Primark.

Five / I found the coolest motorcycle jackets on BikeBandit.com. I feel like half the fun of having a motorcycle is looking fine AF when you ride it. Like if you're just going to wear noob clothes what's the point? LEATHER IT UP.

Six / OK I HAD TO ADD THIS FOR MYSELF I'M SORRY. They had such cute motorcycle jackets for women and my goal is to be a hot biker chick so ya know.

Seven / J also has this natural beard balm and it's like a pomade for his beard. Also very beautiful packaging.

Eight / Does walking barefoot in the house gross anyone else out? Ugh nothing is worse than getting a little crumb or something on your bare foot. *cringes* J has some slippers we got in Japan, but they are pilling on the inside which is just as gross and walking barefoot IMO. So he def could use a new pair.

Nine / I got J this beard kit for Christmas and his beard game has been ON POINT with this plus the oil and balm. #beardgoals

XOXO

Living in Squalor

Am I the only one who feels like it takes LITERALLY FOREVER to like, fully decorate? We still sleep on a mattress on the floor and we've lived here like 5 months lol. Lately I have really been feeling it with our white walls situation. Like I just want $2,000 to finish decorating our apartment, is that too much to ask?!

We did get some plants yesterday that I'll photograph today and post on Monday. They are p cute and actually add a lot more than I thought they would. (The beginnings of a crazy plant lady, probably. I am my mother.)


Anyway, I wanted to share with you guys that the cutest boutique, Evy's Tree, is having a 40% off sale starting today! These cute lil' joggers are from them and I have literally worn them every day for the past week. #workfromhomeperks Wait, I'm not working from home anymore, I'm just at home?? WEIRD.

Go get yourself some goodies!! My favorites are this, this, and this.

XOXO

DIY Polaroid Photo Wall


YOU GUYS. I cannot tell you how happy I have been to be able to decorate our apartment again! While living in my mother's basement in Utah had many benefits, I had the hardest time with not being able to make it feel like our home. Needless to say, our little New England home is my total obsession all day, every day.

I have very specific home tastes. It needs to look clean, but cozy, but also modern, but not like a glass castle. Ya feel? I honestly am the luckiest person in the world because I have a husband who cares 0% about any decor. #blessed #husbandoftheyear

There are tons of great ways to decorate your home, apartment or even dorm room with your favorite photos. But one of my favorites is a simple DIY photo wall. Basically, it’s the easiest thing in the world and SO. CUTE.  


You will need: white push pins, twine, gold binder clips, and some cutie Polaroid photos of your life! My husband and I have been loving our Polaroid Snap instant digital camera. The camera prints out photos instantly while we’re exploring new places or just hanging at home. These adorable 2x3” Polaroid photos are a perfect touch to personalize your home.  I got the push pins, twine, and binder clips from Flying Tiger for like $4 total. (Oh how I miss that place! Seriously one of my favorite things about living in New York City.) You can get the supplies from Amazon. Here are the binder clips, twine (love that pink!), and push pins.


Step #1: Eyeball where to put the push pins until your OCD husband gets nervous and whips out the measuring tape. Place appropriately.

Step #2: Cut way more twine than you actually need. Tie it around the push pins.



Step #3: Clip your photos to the twine! Sometimes there is a little twine thread that you can clip the photo to and it will hold it in place. But honestly, I let mine weight distribute themselves. So they could just slide either way on the twine if that makes sense. You have to put them all on there before you try to distribute the weight

Step #4: Cut your tails to the length you want. I wasn't originally planning on keeping these babies but I just liked the way they looked so I thought "What the heck".


Step #5. Pat yourself on the back for a job well done! And make sure to switch out your cutie Polaroid photos to keep things fresh!

The end! It's weird how such a simple little decoration can add so much! We have these giant walls because we have a second floor loft, so the living room is open. I have been weirdly stressed about what to do with them since we moved in, and I really like how this helps break up the space!

Anyway, I have tons more cute Polaroid photo DIYs coming, so keep your eyes peeled kids!

Thanks to Polaroid for partnering with me on this post! They are bae <3

XOXO

Past Boob



UGH CAN WE TALK ABOUT GROWING OUT BANGS? I am so glad I am working from home because they are cray all the time. I'm hoping in like a month they will be long enough to do swoop bangs, but alas.

Also I have been mainly wearing my hair in braids, so when I wore it down the other day I was like, shocked. It is DEFINITELY past boob. I remember the days where I was just dreaming about the day my hair would be past boob and now that day is here! 

I still try to not use a lot of heat or dye it. But, I did get this hot tools set that I am loving. The little baby straightner is perfect for traveling and also just cute and little lol. I like the tapered curling wand because I feel like it makes it so my curls don't merge into one. Do you know what I mean?

Anyway, if anyone has hairstyle ideas for while straight across bangs are growing out plz let me know!

XOXO
