The number one compliment I get from people (you, strangers and friends on TikTok and Instagram, strangers at the grocery store, my students…) is that I have really pretty hair. People have been DMing me and stopping me to ask what I use for so long that I decided to finally put together a post of all my products (all cruelty-free btw) and hot tools that I use. I hope this post bestows upon you the same smooth, shiny hair that I strive for!
I have some ambitious plans for 2022! Explore my 2022 Vision Board and see how I plan to reach the goals I’m setting for myself this year.
I haven’t written in almost an entire year. Here’s a brief explanation of what’s kept me away, my plans moving forward, our annual holiday card, and a very exciting announcement.
The holidays are such an important time for small businesses. The money they make between Halloween and New Year can make or break their entire fiscal year. With so many small businesses closing this year due to covid, let’s try to help give some owners (and boss babes, because I’m very proud to tell you that most of this list is female-owned and operated) some support to see them through these tough times. Below is a list of 50 amazing small businesses to support in your holiday shopping. Please help this list grow by adding your favorite small businesses in the comments.
I’ve tried a number of things to sleep better: melatonin, ZzzQuil, more exercise… the list goes on. Finally, after years of trial and error and nights of restless sleep, I found a few things that work for me. If you’re a “bad sleeper” like I am, hopefully some of these methods can offer you a better night’s rest too.
Cilantro, lime, and tequila combine to make a magical marinade for the easiest ever chicken dinner. How easy? Toss everything in a bag and let the chicken soak up the flavor while you mix up a margarita and kick back… I mean, the tequila’s already out, right?
These are without a doubt the BEST blueberry muffins. They’re easy to whip up, not too sweet, full of plump berries, and have a deliciously buttery, cinnamony crumble topping. They’re healthy (maybe?), so slather them with salted butter, pour a cup of coffee, and enjoy.
So… you’re stuck inside. Now what? Well, I’ve got your solution… maybe. To be honest, this list probably has a lot of films and shows you’ve already seen, but I’m throwing it out there anyways. It’s mostly light-hearted shows and movies because I feel like that’s what I need right now, and maybe you do too.
Making your own juice doesn’t have to be complicated or hard. It’s fun to experiment and see what flavor combinations work and to incorporate fresh produce into your diet. This is one of our go-to juices. It’s packed with vitamin c, is naturally sweet, and has a little spice to it.
My Amaretto Cherry Cheesecake might seem intimidating, but it’s more simple than you might think, and the flavor combination is a real showstopper. The main thing to remember when making this recipe is that patience makes perfect cheesecake!
