Rise N’ Shine Diner’s New Westcott Location Shines Bright

Crying as I write this because this is the place of my dreams. And because it's already been three days since I've been and I desperately want -no, need- to go back for more. Since I was a little girl, I've had my eye set on one thing - to own something entirely of my [...]

Preventive Esthetics – A Lifestyle of Healthy Living & Learning

I've been getting laser hair removal done for about five years now. Since my first treatment, the idea of getting my medical laser spa certification has been tumbling around in my brain. This includes treatments ranging from skin tightening, laser hair removal, to CoolSculpting fat reduction. All non-invasive treatments, they're great ways to keep your [...]

Drawing Creative Inspiration from Instagram

Sometimes, inspiration flows through me. I have to sprint to get to my laptop or to a piece of paper because the thoughts and ideas are coming to me so quickly I can hardly keep up. But then there's the days that creating is not so much fun. When I'm on a deadline, or exhausted, [...]

Between Wednesday, March 6 and Sunday March 10 (yes, you still have time!!) at [...]

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Lash Extensions

So we're coming up on spring. And that can only mean one thing. No, I'm not talking about your eyes readjusting to seeing a bright yellow orb in the sky again, or birds chirping, or people suddenly becoming friendlier, or even the sudden, miraculous disappearance of seasonal depression. I'm talking about EVENTS SZN. You know [...]

Macaroon this Valentine’s a Sweet One: Horrible Puns & Last Minute Gifts

  So Valentine's Day is now literally days away. And let's be honest, some of you (guys and girls alike) are half-panicked. Some of you maybe don't believe in the holiday, others have just plain lost track of time. But for those of you who still want to make the evening count, I've got a [...]

Let’s Get Fat & Weird- The Ultimate Cookie Co.

Fat & weird. Exactly what you'll become if you eat enough of these delicious, doughy, baked goods. (I might add, yes I have celiac, no these are not gluten free, do not be fooled. Sometimes you just have to sacrifice for the blog.) I've just been craving a cookie lately. A giant, gooey, fresh out-the-oven [...]

I Signed Up For a Wine Subscription Box & This is What I Thought

Wine delivery services, apparently they're all the rage these days. Actually, delivery services in general are becoming more and more popular. I'll be the first to admit that I hardly ever shop in-store anymore; when Amazon can get you what you need in two days or less for half the price, why would you? Buuuut [...]
