2 Flights in 48 Hours: A Complexion’s Nightmare

Let me 2 weeks of constant travelling begin….yay? I think. Alright so I’m currently in Knoxville, Tennessee for work. It’s hot. Hot and humid. MY FAVORITE. I flew down Monday night, and am flying back tonight. That’s a lot of air time in a very short amount of time. And let me tell you now,…

Italian Inspired Antipasto Platter

Currently writing from my new desk instead of the couch and I could not be happier!!! Last week, I found myself feeling a bit overwhelmed. I had intended on posting here 3 to 4 times a week, and having tons of posts in my arsenal pre-written and ready to go. Well, life got in the way, and I ended…

Prepping for Taco Tuesday with Chipotle Shrimp and Kale Tacos

If you’re anything like me, you hate doing your food shopping on the same day as your cooking. Well, at least on week days. There are only a few precious hours between getting home from work and going to sleep to fit way too much in! I like to do most of my food shopping…

FriYAY Cocktails: Blackberry Whiskey Sour

It’s Friday so you know what that means…FriYAY Cocktails!! Fair warning: this one’s a bit on the strong side. But hey, it’s Friday. Let’s get tipsy. Earlier this week I noticed the organic blackberries were on sale at my local Shop Rite. I’m not a 100% organic shopper, I just can’t afford that. But when…

Rosie’s Lemon Drizzle Teacakes

Real talk, I have a massive girl crush on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Put her looks aside, I find her to be ridiculously charming and pleasant in her interviews. And her Snapchat is a must-watch for me. A little over a year ago, she posted a step by step Snapchat story of her making lemon drizzle teacakes, and…

Patak’s Original Chicken Tikka Masala

Rewind to my freshman year in college. I had never tried Indian food, and had zero idea what it was like. My birthday rolled around, and my friend Brittany took control of planning a mini dinner to celebrate. Brittany is quite the cultured soul. Both her parents are Indian, but her father grew up in…

FriYAY Cockatils: Pomegranate Ginger Smash

Welcome to my first post in the FriYAY Cocktails series!! I loooooove a good cocktail, and I love Fridays, so it’s the best of  both worlds! I have some friends coming over tonight for drinks before heading out to one of our new absolute favorite restaurants in our neighborhood. My boyfriend and I live in Jersey City,…

Black Charcoal & Aloe Vera Deep Cleaning Acne Face Mask

Ahhh the relaxing feeling of a face mask. I can’t be the only one out there that’s certifiably obsessed with face masks…right?! They’re just so versatile you can seriously target any skin issue with a mask. Acne, dullness, texture, wrinkles, dryness, oil production, EVERYTHING.  At first I thought I’d share my favorite face masks with you guys,…

The Classic Merenguito

To be totally honest, I really don’t know what these are called. My Cuban family calls them “Merenguitos”, I’ve heard them called simply “Meringues”, and my favorite cooking duo, The Meringue Girls, call them “Meringue Kisses”. Regardless, they are an absolute dream of sugary goodness. Crunchy outside, mallowy middle, they’re like a marshmallows cousin with…

Vegan Salted Caramel Fudge Bites

You know a vegan recipe is pretty bomb when a non-vegan can’t stop eating it. And this recipe is pretty bomb.  I’m not a vegan by any means, but I respect the diet and make the effort to eliminate animal products when  I can. My  boyfriend isn’t a vegan either and makes no effort to avoid…

Power Punch Blueberry Muffins

I feel like whenever I’m on the go or in a rush and need a good solid breakfast, I reach for a muffin (or wish I had some). They’re just so easy, so delicious, what can go wrong? Well it seems quite a bit can go wrong. Some muffins are a stone’s throw away from…
