We all know that blush is a hot color in the spring and all year round. But recently, I find myself in love with beige clothing pieces more and more. The neutral color is warm, inviting, and super flattering. It slims, elongates and just looks great on everyone. Since beige is the neutral of neutrals it also pairs well with almost everything. New favorite color?! I think so!
All winter long, and for the first half of spring, you can find me in a trusty turtleneck. Easily this winter’s most versatile staple, the turtleneck sweater helps me stay warm and cozy on many occasions. I love how this one isn’t too oversized and frumpy, and layers well. It can be dressed up or down and looks great with just about anything. Since the northeast is covered in snow and the south feels like winter again, it’s unlikely that I’ll be packing up my sweaters anytime soon. Although, I would prefer a cute gingham dress instead.
Mmm goat cheese, the tart and creamy cheese that can be savory, sweet or perfectly in between. I love adding goat cheese to my weekend avocado toast, and to my favorite pasta dishes. It’s quickly replacing mozzarella in my kitchen routine, and can you blame me…the depth in flavors is just perfection. Here are 18 goat cheese recipes that are drool worthy and must try options!
Spring transitional time is here and it is the most awkward time of the year when it comes to clothing. Especially in the south where it is 35 degrees in the morning and 80 degrees by lunchtime; literal hot and cold extremes in one day. Fortunately, I work in a very casual office setting, so I’m living in tees and jeans for the next few weeks. And of course, throwing on a cardigan is essential since it’ll very likely be freezing by the end of the day. When you’re looking for spring transitional outfit inspiration, just opt for easy layers. It isn’t much work peeling off layers if necessary, but being too hot or too cold all day is a pain.
With citrus season in full bloom, I’m incorporating the tart fruit into my meals as much as possible. When you think of citrus, dessert or sweet preparations usually come to mind, but savory citrus meals are just as good. Recently, I’m adding a few slivers of citrus into my salad for extra brightness and flavor. This citrus salad with avocado and vinaigrette is one of my favorite lunch meals. Also, combining oranges, lemons, blood oranges and tangerines creates a colorful meal that is so pretty to look at.
For years my mom ingrained in my mind that turmeric is one of the healthiest foods out there. The brightly colored root is a strong antioxidant, helps fight inflammation and has many other added benefits. Being commonly used in Indian cuisine, it was easily incorporated into my daily routine. Here are some turmeric recipes that put the root to good use.
A luxe texture that is perfect for the holidays…velvet! With holiday parties popping up, velvet is a great option for a dressy affair. The texture is so plush and soft, while being ultra feminine and glam at the same time. What’s not to love, velvet is the fabric of royalty after all! When I first saw this blush velvet dress, I had to try it out! The texture is so luscious and the wrap silhouette is very flattering.
Holiday Tarts, sweet, crusty, and a beautiful dessert centerpiece. Since tarts are open on the top, they’re essentially like a cake and pie combined. Fun and pretty, right? Sweet holiday tarts can be filled with fruit, custard, chocolate or even made savory!
If you’re in charge of bringing a dessert to your next event, try out one of these Holiday Tart options.
With the winter months come cooler temperatures, limited sunshine, and holiday preparations. Tons of items are on your plate and putting together meals ends up at the bottom of the list. So when a day looks busy, pre-planning dinner options is always a good idea. The crockpot makes it so easy too! Just throw everything into the pot and your meal is ready when you get home!
