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}”

Mother’s Day DIY Gift Wrap

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. Thank goodness for those 10 cent bags from the grocery store that I have shoved in the cupboard under my sink. 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.

Avocado Margarita {Avo-Rita} Recipe

Happy Cinco de Mayo! I’m all about a good excuse to drink margaritas and eat endless chips and salsa. Especially when it falls on a Friday! Hallelujah! I’ve been inspired to try re-creating an avocado margarita I had on the cruise ship (more on that later). I haven’t stopped thinking about it since I got home! It was seriously so delicious. 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!

DIY spa night at home

Nothing relaxes me more than a day at the spa. Tranquility, silence, and a warm cup of tea while bundling myself up in a plush robe…total bliss! But let’s be real, the price tag on a day at the spa can be a hefty one. Instead, I do weekly spa nights at home to get my fix when I can’t make it into the real thing.

Favorite Spring Dresses {under $100}

One of my favorite parts about the spring and summer seasons is all the flowy, floral, ruffly dresses. If it were possible, I’m pretty sure I’d have a whole separate closet full of dresses and rompers. I mean, they are practical and perfect for pretty much every occasion, so it’s not that unreasonable. Anyways, I put my obsession to good use by putting together a handful of my current favorite dresses out there. From babydolls to off-the-shoulder to maxi, I tried to find a variety of different styles and prints to give you a selection that would hopefully lend to something that fits your own personal style.  Continue reading “Favorite Spring Dresses {under $100}”

Spring Beauty Haul Review

With Spring fast approaching, I decided it was time to try out a few new things and give my cosmetics collection a little refresher. That’s basically what they mean by “spring cleaning,” right? I wanted to incorporate pretty shades of pink and subtle tones of shimmer to brighten things up. I also needed coverage and protection to be a priority. The products I picked up have quickly become some of my favorites and I’m super excited to share them with you guys! Continue reading “Spring Beauty Haul Review”

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”
