Weekday Recipe: Chipotle Shrimp Quinoa

Weekday Recipe: Chipotle Shrimp Quinoa

As someone who is trying to cut carbs, increase my vegetable intake and reduce red meat consumption – this meal is a dream. I have a limited amount of time to cook dinner at night, I usually only cook 2-3 times a week, so it has to be good! This recipe is quick, easy, and extremely healthy. The best part? It’s…

A Day In The Life of a Part-Time Blogger With a Full-Time Job

A Day In The Life of a Part-Time Blogger With a Full-Time Job

As a blogger who has chosen to keep my “day job”, my schedule is nothing but simple. As a wife, puppy-mom, tech professional, and of course blogger – I am constantly multitasking and trying to cross as many things off my list as possible in a day. Every so often I run into someone who says, “How do you do it all?!” Little do they know, that none of us are holding it all together. I just do…

Sleek & Styled: Closet Meet Car

When Autotrader first reached out to me about exploring their favorite fashionable cars, I knew that this was going to be fun. I’ve been a big fan of Autotrader for years, actually ever since I interned for the brand in college. These folks just get it. They know that…

LA TRAVEL GUIDE

LA TRAVEL GUIDE

Last week, Sahir and I celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary in LA. We’ve never been there before and after visiting San Diego & San Francisco it had been on our list. We took advantage of the long weekend and headed to La La Land (I appropriately watched the movie for the first time on the plane ride here) to see that the city had to offer. I have to admit, it was a lot more spread out than I imagined, but we were able to see everything from Venice Beach to West Hollywood and in between. Here’s my travel guide for what to eat, do, and see in LA!

HOW TO WEAR A BODYSUIT

HOW TO WEAR A BODYSUIT

When I was packing for LA, I knew that I wanted to dress a little out of my element. That concept is probably one of the best parts of being on vacation: sampling new styles and dressing for the city you are in. (You remember me in Paris!) I had my heart set on trying a bodysuit for the first time. Problem was, I didn’t…

Atlanta Staycation at the Crowne Plaza Midtown

Atlanta Staycation at the Crowne Plaza Midtown

Unlike many Atlanta residents, I’m lucky enough to call the city my native home. I was born in the city and grew up in a northern suburb. I went to college at the University of Georgia and moved to the city with my husband (& now puppy!) It’s not uncommon that when someone lives in the same place their entire life, they get antsy and eager to move to another place. I, however…

Food That You Must Buy Organic

Food That You Must Buy Organic

For me, adulting comes in stages – particularly when it comes to food. Stage one of adulting is to buy your own groceries. Stage two is the realization of how incredibly ridiculous the price of produce is. Stage three is a stern negotiation with yourself as to what you actually need and stage four is deciding whether or not organic foods are worth it. Once you get over the initial shock of what it actually takes to…

4 HOLY GRAIL HAIR PRODUCTS

4 HOLY GRAIL HAIR PRODUCTS

I’ve been thinking a lot about the brands that I use every day and what drew me to them. There is no shortage of hair styling products, but what makes you choose the one that you do? Pretty packaging? High rating on Amazon? Or, is it just a personal recommendation? Almost every product that is in my beauty arsenal came from the recommendation of someone I trust. I’ve tried a million dry shampoos, so when a girlfriend asks me about which one to use – I’m an encyclopedia of knowledge…
