What To Pack For A City Getaway (Eco Friendly Edition)

(Image via) As crazy as it is to believe that it is almost August, I could not be more excited to have the opportunity to head out to Chicago next week for my cousin’s wedding. The last time I was in Chicago I was there for Lollapalooza and as magical of an experience as it was, I am bummed that we didn’t get to explore the city more. In fact, the only slice of “Chicago pizza” we had was from a food truck at the festival where we were from 9am-9pm everyday rocking out. Needless to say, this time our… View Post

The Pale Girl’s All Natural Sunburn Cure

Growing up in California and being as pale as I am in probably one of God’s cruelest jokes.

Anyways, the greatest struggle for me is (as it often is in my life) SNACKS. Plane snacks are an… View Post

The Perfect Iced Coffee (Vegan)

I know that I am not alone here when I say that coffee is my day wine. Coffee is a magical elixir, that fuels leaders to success and it is what gets me out of bed in the morning (otherwise I would snuggle my cat all day against his will). You might think that I am being hyperbolic, but I don’t think I am. That is why morning coffee isn’t enough and I have added in an additional afternoon iced coffee each day The only problem with most iced coffees? Now that I am vegan, soy milk just doesn’t seem… View Post
