It is finally smoothie weather people! Maybe you’re the type of person who drinks smoothies all year round, but for me smoothies mean spring and summertime. So I was stoked to blend one of my signature smoothies this weekend, which I’m going to share this recipe with all of you!
Every spring, I plop all of my clothes on the bed and sift through what to keep and not keep. It’s been a tradition of mine since I started shopping for my own clothes back in middle school – mostly because that meant giving myself more room for new clothes. Now it just means living extra minimally…and potentially making some money while doing it.
Happy Friday everyone! So how many of you have been keeping up with my weekly meal plans? My hope with this service to teach you how to actually cook at home that will healthfully fuel your body, and put some money back in your pockets. However, I’m sure if cooking is still new to you that maybe you don’t have a ton of cooking utensils. Sure maybe you have a pot or two, a frying pan, and the oven at your apartment. But there are so many cooking utensils out there these days that it kind of feels like you need, well, everything.
So back in October 2015 I was totally sick of all my purses. I was the definition of a purse hoarder – always buying a new cheap purse and racking up my collection, with zero room to put them all. Nevertheless, since I was buying cheap purses they were always falling apart. I’ve had so many straps rip, inner-linings tear, and zippers fall apart after using them on a regular basis. Also, with using multiple purses all week, I was leaving important stuff in different purses that I would need…such as my subway card, my I.D, even my whole wallet from time-to-time.
Hey everyone! Okay I know it’s been two weeks since my last post. I mean, woah, I was doing really well there for a moment. Work has been busy (which, I’m loving by the way) and I’m still learning what it looks like to balance all of it. So forgive me, my faithful and dedicated readers!
I know some people absolutely loathe the month of February, but people, February is my favorite month of all time. Why? Well, it’s my birthday month, duh.
My first official cooking guide for all of you, woohoo!First, let me start off by saying this. I am not a professional cook. I have no degree. I have no chef-ing experience. I just love to cook and create my own variation for recipes – and have a desire to share them with all of you. I haven’t poisoned my husband yet with my cooking, so I take that as a good sign.
Right before I turned 24, my parents came into the city and treated me to a day of shopping. We hit up a ton of stores around Union Square and Soho, but for some reason it was a total bust. Except for the new Kate Spade purse my dad bought me (praise), I wasn’t able to find any good clothes. Nothing seemed to fit right, even when they were my size. Too loose. Too tight. Too short. Too long. After at least 5 different stores, we just gave up and got a drink.
I’ve been thinking a lot about minimalism. I know some of you that ship has already sailed. But honestly, the more I think about it, I believe minimalism can easily be the secret ingredient to living a thriftier, healthier, and happier life. Think about it; the less you own, the less you have to worry about, the less money you spend. When it comes to your house, your closet, even your choices at the grocery store – giving yourself less options can actually open you up to some freedom in the long run.
