An Easy Two Cheese Tray for Any Occasion

Here's a little bonus post for the week..... this one will be short and sweet since it's a super easy recipe. You don't even have to cook anything! It's lowkey all store bought.... and will seem like you put in a ton of effort! Something that I do much more in adulthood that I didn't…

The Best (And Easiest) Healthy Fries

If there's something you guys know about me, it's that I love fries. Fries are my favorite food, and the way to my heart. And after stumbling on to this recipe... I'm obsessed. I have made these fries thrice already in the first twenty four hours that I have known about them. They are vegan,…

The First PSL of the Season

(Low key, my eyebrows look awesome in this picture) It's been a weird transition time, weather-wise. I finally pulled out my first shirt-dress of Autumn 2016, and NEARLY convinced myself to wear the dark green suede lace-up booties that go perfectly with all of my fall clothes. I opted for my trusty Charming Charlie flats, though. I…

The Chicago Cupcake Taste Test (First Impressions)

The first question I know you're wondering is how this little adventure came to be. It all started about a week ago, when yours truly and her friend Ashley wanted to go to the Air and Water Show. After some mishaps with Uber, police officers on ponies, a weed truck, and a whole lot of…

I Highkey Love Tea Bars

This summer I binge watched, and fell in love with Rachel Bloom's Crazy Ex Girlfriend. If you have not seen it yet--stop everything and go watch the show. It's revolutionary, funny, feminist as fuck, empowering, hilarious, and just absolutely amazing. But fair warning, if you watch this show, you will want boba.  Seriously, I cannot tell you…

The Unabridged Sass Version of a Summer Classic, The Tomato Sandwich

I walked into the break room today about to eat a cookie--instead I walked out with a tomato sandwich. There are certain foods that absolutely scream simplicity, chicness, and breeziness, and this is one of those foods. It is the quintessential summer sandwich, the most Goop/Preserve/Honest/Martha Stewart/Barefoot Contessa-y of all sandwiches. It's Harriet the Spy's…

Italian Fest 2016–I Love Sangria and Pasta

After lots of work, stress, and a whole lot of being busy, I was definitely more than relieved when my friends said that we should go to Italian Fest last night. I love Festa Italiana, I've gone every single year (multiple times even!) since I've moved out here. It's quite possibly my favorite event of…

No, Really, I Love Taco Bell

I love Taco Bell. I think that Chrissy Teigen and I are food twins, because we both have a high appreciation for foods like cacio e pepe, but also a strong admiration and love for Taco Bell. There's just something about it--the convenience store chip-based items, the flavorful "meats," the zesty sauces. The crazy college…
