10 Blogs I Love to Follow

One of my absolute favorite parts of the blogging community is meeting other bloggers sharing and creating similar (or different) content and getting a glimpse into their lives the way you would with an “in-person” friendship. In some ways, I feel like I’m more in the loop with friends I’ve made through blogging than outside of it, because even if we haven’t had a second to catch up recently, I can follow along with what they’ve been up to!  …

I’ve been selfishly holding this guacamole recipe to myself ever since my trip to Puerto Rico for my birthday. After serving it several times and having people demand the recipe, I’ve decided to share it with everyone! (It actually just never occurred to me to share the recipe…I was too focused on figuring out how many chips I could eat before I explode!) We found this recipe at a restaurant next to my cousins adorable little surf shack in Puerto Rico…

4 Things I Always Keep In My Gym Bag

4 Things I Always Keep in my Gym Bag

Finding time to incorporate regular workouts into your routine is so difficult when you try to balance it with the rest of your schedule. There are so many ways that a workout can suddenly become “too inconvenient” in conjunction with your other plans. Early meetings? Need to look presentable. Dinner or happy hour plans? Won’t have time to wash my hair! My workout routine consists of a couple of different things, so I tend to need different things with me…
