To be honest, I was a little intimidated by the question, but I wanted to challenge myself to sit down and write a few things down that have been helpful for…

What I Want to Bake This Holiday Season

I don’t consider myself a master baker by any stretch of the imagination, but I do especially love baking this time of year. It brings back so many memories of making cookies with family when I was younger, and now I’m excited to create those same memories with Four and Duncan. My strategy when I am looking for tasty things to bake is simple: It has to be easy and…

My First Thanksgiving Table

We are officially into November. Insert mind-blown emoji here, right!? I truly can’t believe how fast this year has gone. I’m not sure if it’s the fact that I’ve got an almost 9-month-old crawling around everywhere or what but this year’s flown by. November does have me excited because I will be hosting my first ever Thanksgiving this year! Is this what being a grown-up feels like!? I’m slightly nervous…

My Review of the Lululemon Align Joggers

I’ve been a fan of the Lululemon Align leggings for as long as I can remember (the hype is REAL, y’all), but I’ll admit that I’m a new convert of the Align JOGGERS! These joggers are made with the same buttery Nulu fabric that the leggings are, so they literally feel weightless when you wear them. It’s hard to describe unless you’ve tried these on before — but there’s a…

4 Recipes I’ll Be Making This Week

Once I find a recipe that is easy to make, relatively healthy, and that both Duncan and I love to eat, I keep it in my back pocket for those days I just don’t feel like being creative in the kitchen.

Today’s gift guide is all about shopping for the fitness lover in your life. This is the kind of person who loves to close their rings every day on their apple watch (and if they don’t already have an apple watch, they definitely need one!) or has been eyeing one of those cool Hypervolt massage devices for months! Sometimes they can be tricky to shop for so hopefully this gives…

Where do I even begin with the Vuori Performance Joggers?! They’re the PERFECT jogger in every way. From comfort to style to function, they literally check all the boxes!

I love switching up our bedding and playing with different color combos. I’ve updated it a few times since moving in – here’s how it was a few months ago if you missed it.
