w{ RECIPES + HEALTH + WELLNESS }

Recently  I’ve been searching for a creative outlet to express my daily interests such as health & wellness, dining out & cooking in, photography, fashion, and design. Blogging became a way to express my love for all of these things in one place.  Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you follow along!

 

SUNDAY BANANA PANCAKES

Are you ever in the MOOD for something? By MOOD I mean a moment like listening to Jack Johnson’s “Banana Pancakes” while making banana pancakes early in the morning? Well that was me this past Sunday – dancing around the kitchen like a pancake making fool. I have never made the dish before & loved the way my improvised breakfast turned out! So, I’d thought I would share this easy way to make Banana Pancakes in under 15 minutes! (more…)

Health & wellness have become an extremely hot topic in recent years. We are constantly influenced by them every day whether it’s looking through you IG feed, watching TV,  reading magazines, or even your best friend trying to get you to the gym.

MY WORKOUT ROUTINE

Over the past few weeks I’ve had a lot of you message me asking me about my workout routine and what I do at the gym. So, I wanted to share a quick post with you including an example of a weeks worth of workouts and the routine behind them. (more…)

THE IMPORTANCE OF WORK/LIFE BALANCE

Wake up. Work. Gym. Blog. Dog. Clean. Lather. Rinse. Repeat. 

For many professionals, a work-life balance is incredibly important for happiness, productivity and effectiveness at work. I often get caught in the daily struggle trying to optimize my time spent working and just living life.  So, lately I’ve been focusing on achieving the right balance between career and lifestyle. I know the going is rough now, but in the long run this will aid to my productivity & will help maintain the health of my relationships. (more…)

REALITIES OF LIVING WITH YOUR S.O

Moving in with your significant other is obviously a pretty big step. It’s a something you do to check if your relationship is going to go the distance, possibly to marriage (if that’s in your plans) and beyond. Hopefully, it’s a romantic process that includes many home-cooked dinners, constant smooching, and quality time spent together. That, of course, is the co-habitation dream.

BROWN SUGAR BOURBON MEATLOAF

Hi babes! The Brown Sugar Bourbon Meatloaf one of my ALL TIME favorite recipes. When I first tried this, I made it three times in one week – which in hindsight was probably not that healthy for me. Now it has become an inexpensive, quick and easy dinner that I can whip up on my busier days. Most of these ingredients you will already find in your kitchen, so getting the meat & brown sugar is the important part. I hope you enjoy!
