Pumpkin Picking on Sauvie Island

Peach Picking in the Summer, Pumpkin Picking in the Fall! Are pumpkin patches a tradition that will ever get old? Probably not. As I’ve been getting older I realized that these are the kinds of traditions that I tend to cling to. Fall is my favorite time of the year and while listening to the rain hitting a window with a warm cup of coffee in my hands is nice, it’s definitely not enough! I have to be out doing something in order ...

A Fall Necessity

Happy Wednesday!!! This last month has been a weird transition into Fall with some really warm days and then slightly cold days but it’s finally raining and I absolutely love it When I was little, my parents bought my brothers and I plastic ponchos to wear outside when it rained and we wore them all the time. They weren’t stylish at all but they kept us dry and that was more important. But I look at those photos and thank God I ...

Cleanse Update: 14 Days Away From Insanity

I hate to sound dramatic but… this “cleanse” makes me feel like I’m dying. I was stoked to jump into it at the beginning and I loved all the healthy food. My smoothies in the morning are delicious and I’ve been feeling great after getting so many vitamins from the fruits and veggies I’m eating. But this has completely cleaned my body out. Last time I did this cleanse I was just getting more sleep. This ...

CLEAN

Happy October! Even though September flew by way too fast, I love entering a new month. It’s like a Monday or New Year’s Day, it’s a fresh start! And today marks the start of my elimination diet! I mentioned in my last post that this would be a struggle, what with Fall bringing all the sweet treats and I can’t have any of them for the next 21 days. But I can definitely feel that my body needs this and I’m really excited to get started! My ...

My Next Adventure

It’s so weird to see all the kids starting a new grade and all of the college students moving back to school. This is the first time in 16 years that I can’t say I’m “going back to school.” I’m not gonna lie… It feels great! Like, I am so incredibly excited to not be packing up all my stuff and moving back to a small town and getting mentally prepared for all the stress of homework and grades! But, ...

Silver Sails

As much as I love Vitamin D, I’m stoked for Fall! Honestly, I get a little uninspired in the Summer when it comes to fashion. I much prefer layering up and living in sweaters. In the Summer I would rather just wear a bikini for 3 months and put on a swimsuit cover when I’m not close to the water. But I heard somewhere that bikinis are not office appropriate, even with a cover. But for one last outfit post of the Summer, I wanted ...

Tacos and Tassels

In honor of Taco Tuesday, I wanted to highlight my absolute favorite place in Portland for tacos: Por Qué No? This place has the most authentic Mexican food and I honestly can’t get enough of it. I’m not very picky when it comes to Mexican food because I love all the spices and it’s hard to go wrong with it, but nothing compares to the food I had when I visited Cabo 3 years ago. Finding a place in Portland with food to ...

Grilled Margarita and Pesto Chicken Pizzas

One of my favorite parts of Summer? The food. Who doesn’t love a warm Summer night with friends and food? Whether it means sitting on the beach with a couple of cold beers and the evening’s spread laid out on a blanket, or a bunch of people gathered in the backyard for a BBQ, you can’t beat a warm evening with delicious food! My dad, being a dad, has always been an avid griller so about 60% of the food I ate in the summer ...

On My Radar: Prairie Underground

Okay let me just tell you guys about this totally rad brand… I recently discovered Prairie Underground while working at my internship. Adorn Boutiques in Portland carries so many pieces by them and I instantly fell in love! But let me talk about the best part: The brand is totally ethical and sustainable. They use a variety of sustainable fibers, such as organic cotton, hemp, Tencel, and so many others. They also use reactive dye and ...

Summer Sangria

Last November I tried my hand at Sangria for the first time and came up with this simple Holiday Sangria! Traditional Sangria is supposed to be made with red wine but sometimes white wine is a bit more refreshing in the Summertime so I made this one using white moscato. With the addition of lemonade and strawberries, it’s kind of like spiked strawberry lemonade. And who doesn’t enjoy a spiked version of their favorite childhood ...
