• Kearsley Lloyd on Sun Protection

    Sun protection in the hot summer months is crucial! Beach time, golf courses, tennis matches, amusement parks; we all spend so much time outside! I am so excited to have my incredibly talented Rhode Island friend, Kearsley Lloyd share her wisdom today on A Modern Housewife! Kearsley now lives full time in Bermuda (yes, my other favorite place!) and is a graphic designer and artist. She specializes in custom designs, branding and illustrations. She has found a niche working with brides to create specialized logos, invitations and accessories for everything surrounding the big day, and creating monograms to carry with them beyond.     In addition she designs corporate logos, boat…

  • “Burner Juice”

    I have loved celery juice now for a little over 9 months. I talked about it here, in this post. I swear to goodness it helps with digestion, clarity, my skin, my hair… which I think is all tied to gut health. I really think it has healed my gut from SIBO. I have read science behind “The Celery Juice Diet” thanks to the Anthony William books and I think it works, maybe it’s mumbo jumbo, but who cares if I feel better, right? So I have been strict, per Anthony William, about drinking straight, pure, freshly made celery juice… until we went to LA last week. I had a juice…

  • May Favorites…

    May is all about getting ready for summer right? Or at least getting my closet ready for summer. I have been on a major purge lately getting rid of things we don’t love or use anymore (read HERE), and my closet has been hit hard (more on that in a future post!)… so I need some fun replacements! Also, have been on a reading tear, I even got to meet the lovely sisters behind the Liv Constantine hit The Last Mrs. Parrish, #12 on the list! Without further ado… my May favorites! Click on item name to shop! Shoshanna Tinsley Dress – I tried this on on a whim and…

  • Cinnamon “Latte”

    Okay… this drink is my favorite… borderline obsession and I have it for breakfast on days I don’t have time for eggs. I also make it with decaf chai tea for an afternoon pick me up. This recipe may seem familiar… I posted it about a year ago and SOMEHOW it got deleted from my website. It seems a sweet child MAY have deleted it when they were doing homework on my computer. Oh well. I’ve chatted about the Cinnamon “Latte” (aka power protein morning special) a few times recently so I thought it needed to be reposted! I gave up coffee almost two years ago (wow), but I’m not…

  • Homemade “Deli” Turkey

    I posted yesterday in my Instagram Stories that I was attempting to make my own deli style turkey for sandwiches using none other than my Instant Pot. Yes, yes, I am completely obsessed with that contraption. It is amazing… no ifs ands or buts. (Read my review here.) Anyway, the response to the turkey instastory was exuberant and large! I get it. Sandwiches are such an easy thing to pack for lunches, both school and work and sometimes deli meat is, well, scary. I mean what’s really in it? And if you go for the organic stuff it is so expensive! This is so extremely easy and you can flavor…

  • It is the celery juice or the grief?

    Okay, so I am edging my way back in to writing posts after a little time off … it is helpful. My brother, Thad, was incredibly supportive of A Modern Housewife. He loved to see me flexing my creative muscle and doing something that was fulfilling for myself. He also was the best advice giver and had given me some thoughts on different directions to take for content, so stay tuned. So the title of this post… Despite being exhausted, I psychically feel good. I feel leaner, lighter and stronger than I was a month ago. Is it that I have been drinking celery juice (most mornings) or that I…
