Coconuts for Donuts! {Coco-Coffee Donut Recipe}

Happy National Donut Day! Ok so I’m not gonna lie to y’all…the process of making this post was definitely not as glamorous as it seems. The struggle is real to try to bake in an apartment kitchen while keeping it clean enough to photograph every step of the way. But I gotta say, it was definitely worth it (#doitforthedonuts). The results were these soft, cakey, coconut-y donuts with the most subtle hint of coffee flavor. Continue reading “Coconuts for Donuts! {Coco-Coffee Donut Recipe}”

I don’t know about you, but I felt like Mother’s Day really creeped up on me this year. Although I had my mom’s present already, I was slacking on the wrapping job.

For all you last-minute wrappers out there, here’s an easy gift wrapping tutorial that’s super cute, too. And you’ll be re-using those grocery bags you never use. WIN.

The avocado adds a creaminess that you don’t get in a traditional shaken margarita. Plus, knowing it was full of avocado’s good fats made it even better!

Farmhouse on a Budget

I have a confession to make…I am slightly (ok, more like majorly) obsessed with the show Fixer Upper on HGTV. Joanna Gaines’ style is absolutely amazing and the relationship she has with her husband, Chip, is one that just makes your heart melt. Major relationship goals. I even went as far as to beg my boyfriend to move to Waco, TX so I could live on a farm and try to become BFFs with Jo. Continue reading “Farmhouse on a Budget”
