• July Favorites…

    My favorites this month pretty much revolve around the beach… and exercising. All things Summer. Some I have talked about before so they are old favorites but also some new finds… how had I never tried on Beyond Yoga before? Click on item name to shop!  1. Beyond Yoga Alloy Ombre Leggings – these literally yelled my name (as my sister in law proclaimed!) when I saw them and they are sooooo good and that metallic splatter detail is perfect. Uber flattering and ridiculously comfortable; also very breathable for these hot Summer work outs! 2. Beyond Yoga Alloy Ombre Double Back Bra – Okay, a little matchy matchy but I like…

  • Summer of the jumpsuit…

    I have been loving jumpsuits since last Fall and I can safely say that they are officially the the easiest outfit of the Summer. Like with a dress, you can put together an outfit in no time; they are so simple to dress up or down. Unlike a dress, you can pretty much do anything in a jumpsuit… run after a small child, easily sit in the grass or the sand and most importantly (at least to me!) you can ride a bike in a jumpsuit! (Okay, maybe I would not ride a bike in #10, but it is my mode of summer transportation most nights!) Cropped, wide leg, prints,…

  • Summer Finds For Under $100!

    I find that you can really get some cute, fun, affordable clothes and accessories in the Summer!

  • Gazpacho

    There are so many different version of Gazpacho out there. Red Tomato, yellow tomato, green tomato, watermelon… the list goes on.  This is my favorite variation- simple, easy and perfect on a hot summer day. Also a great use for the amazing purple peppers I got this week from Mike’s Organic Delivery! (Take 10% off your first order with code AMH10) I skip the raw garlic with this version which seems to make it much more kid friendly. You could certainly make this with tomatoes from the garden but I love a can of San Marzano tomatoes- they are perfect every time. Ingredients: 28oz Can of  whole peeled San Marazano…

  • Point Sur X J. Crew

    My apologies for being behind on blog posts. While I am working out this SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth… lovely. I will do a post on it in the future)  with Low FODMAPS diet situation, my meals have been boring, redundant and not always that colorful… I have not had any inspirations for new recipes as of late. That said, I am actually excited to have been diagnosed with SIBO (yesterday!) so I can move on with treatment and get back to cooking! The other thing that has been all consuming, although exciting and fun, is our house renovation. I  have spent so much time looking at tile, lighting, paint…
