HelloFresh Review: On a Gluten-Free Diet

Holy Moly! This week has been a doozie! Work has been pretty fast paced and my nights at home seem to fly by. Luckily, we had a HelloFresh delivery on Monday so I haven’t had to worry about what’s for dinner. I thought it would be the perfect time to share about our experience with HelloFresh so far. We’ve been receiving HelloFresh deliveries for the past 3 months or so. The great thing about the service is that you can skip a week or cancel at anytime. Sometimes we will get a bunch of weeks in a row and sometimes we’ll skip a few weeks in a row, it just depends on what recipes they are offering that week and what our evening plans look […]

Friday Favorites: August 2017

  Favorite App – Unroll Me OMG this app is a lifesaver if you find yourself ridiculously backlogged in personal emails as I do! It scans your email and allows you to unsubscribe from any you don’t want to keep all at once. It also lets you roll any of the subscriptions you do want into one “roll-up” email per day.  It will scan your email initially and then each day for any new subscriptions that come through. I unsubscribed from over 90 emails in just a few minutes! Favorite Finds This off the shoulder dress. These adorable suede wedges. This budget friendly scalloped tote bag. And this really cute statement necklace. Favorite Links Funny Kate Middleton moments – I really would love to be […]

Show Us Your Books {August 2017}

I always think I’m going to have way more time to read in the summer but it didn’t really happen so I only have a few books to share from the last couple of months. All I would recommend and all very different! Into the Water by Paula Hawkins – 4 stars I went into reading this a little unsure because I heard such mixed reviews. Girl on the Train was such a hit that this book had a lot to live up to but it was completely different and definitely deserves to be evaluated as such. I really enjoyed it. Yes, there were way too many characters and points of view to read from, I could have done without a few and just read […]

Weekending: Welcome Home & Wedding Dresses

This weekend was non-stop but filled with lots of celebrating! On Saturday we had a surprise party for my brother-in-law who just returned from his deployment. It’s so great to have him home safe and sound and we are all so proud! Hearing him talk about his experience and how grateful he his to be home with some everyday conveniences really makes you stop and appreciate our country and the people who serve it. I made him a banner and cupcakes! Sunday was another special day, this time I got to join one of my best friends shopping for her wedding dress. She tried on so many beautiful options and I think she chose the perfect one! It was such a fun day. I’m going […]

What’s New {August 2017}

One of the great things about linking up with Kristen and Gretchen for What’s New is that it’s a perfect time for me to jump in when I’ve been MIA for a while. The last month has been a blur and I can’t believe Summer is quickly coming to a close. Luckily, we will still have 3 more months of summer weather here in the sunshine state 🙂 July Happenings: I got some great news at work for a promotion! It’s something I’ve been working towards for the last year and I’m really excited for the new opportunity. The last few weeks have taken up most of my energy with interviews and the stressful waiting game but I finally got the good news and now I’m […]

{Wedding Wednesday} Our Wedding Cruise

This month we hit six months of marriage…I can’t believe how fast the time is flying by. I’m a terrible blogger and never really shared too much of the details of our wedding right away because the months following were a crazy time! But hitting the sixth month mark has me reminiscing about that special weekend! Get ready for picture overload! 🙂 We got married in January on a 4 Day, 3 night Royal Caribbean cruise. We had over 20 friends and family spend the weekend with us. The wedding itself was pretty low key and we had a blast celebrating all weekend! Day 1 – Port Canaveral The first day we met up with all of our guests on the ship and passed out […]

Weekending: Orlando Eats

All I can think about from this weekend is how much food we ate! A nice family dinner, a BBQ, late night bar food, Sunday brunch…it feels like all we did! The good news is I have some great Orlando spots to share. Dinner at Bella Tuscany  Bella Tuscany is in the Windermere area which is right outside of Disney, so I highly recommend venturing out there for dinner if you are ever visiting the parks. This was only our second time eating there but it’s quickly become a favorite. The food is incredible! And there are plenty of gluten-free options which is rare for an Italian restaurant. The menu is seasonal with daily specials and you can tell immediately that they are original, handmade […]

What’s New {July 2017}

This week has been a blur…working Monday, off Tuesday which was spent at the beach all day and then work again Wednesday…I’m so off my game and in a daze! Hopefully I can get back on track this weekend. June was filled with trips to the pool, beach and just hanging out and spending time with friends. Looking back I realized I did a terrible job taking pictures this past month, I think I’ve just been enjoying the laid back summer atmosphere. Currently I’m: Eating…Muesli! I just discovered this and have been eating it overnight oats style, so yummy! I had never heard of it before and got a rebate back with my handy Ibotta app so I thought it would be the perfect time […]

Favorite Florida Beaches

Living in Orlando, we are fortunate to have a huge selection of beaches to enjoy. With 4th of July coming up, we will definitely be spending it enjoying the water and sunshine and it got me thinking about some good beaches to head out to. These are my favorite beaches for a weekend getaway or to spend the day. 1. Siesta Key Beach As I’ve mentioned before, this is my favorite beach! Many people agree because it has been voted America’s #1 beach. The beach itself is gorgeous, white sand and clear water with lots of activities/rentals. It’s a perfect place to spend the weekend or a few days because they also have a village with fantastic restaurants and shops. I will continue to rave […]
