As many of you who follow me know, I recently became a vegetarian (blog post on my journey coming soon,) and although I did not make this change 100 percent based on animals, keeping animals safe and finding better options is definitely a plus when it comes to the vegetarian lifestyle. I would be lying if I said I use all organic and cruelty-free products, however, when the option is presented I feel much better and would prefer to use anything cruelty-free. Maple Holistic’s provides health and hygiene products such as shampoos, facial masks, essential oils and more! The… View Post

There’s nothing better than a bowl of ice cold pasta salad in the summertime. This dish has both veggies and fruit to give you a different taste in each bite. It’s super easy to make and sooo delicious. Although I did make this myself, I can’t take all the credit because my friend Stephanie is the real genius behind putting this dish together originally.

Since I’ve been about 18 that’s exactly what I’ve done! I’m truly blessed to be able to see and do the things I have. From… View Post

As much as I love summer and wish it would never come to an end I do love fall, minus the cold weather and lack of sunshine. The food is delicious, I love visiting the cider mills and Halloween is by far my FAVORITE holiday. Since I was little my mom and I would always get a pumpkin from the cider mill and carve it and bake pumpkin seeds. I’ve always loved them. This year I wanted to put a little spin on just your typical pumpkin seeds. Instead of just salting them, I decided to make them five different… View Post
