Easy Summer Recipes: Strawberry + Watermelon Cooler


Northern California is currently in the throes of an intense heatwave. Also, did I mention that I work in a textile warehouse?? Meaning if it's 97F outside, it's a hell of a lot hotter under the tin roof. In a twist of irony my Snapchat app has boycotted Fahrenheit, and will only communicate in centigrade terms. In other words, I really really look forward to this little cooler at the end of the work day! 

This recipe is super easy to make: only three ingredients (4 if you're feeling sassy) and it whips up in three minutes or less. It's also vegan so it leaves you feeling great all around!

Inspiration: Boyfriend Everything

Boyfriend shirt


Is it too early to dub this as the "Summer of the Boyfriend"? because relaxed denim and oversized tops are all I want to wear these days...that and lace-up mid level chunky heels. Comfort for me has been key lately, and I don't really see why comfort and style can't mix! 

What are you wearing a lot of this season?

Ah sweaters in July. Northern California is a place where it is always wise to always have a few layering pieces on hand; the weather app on my iPhone may say that temperatures will reach 92F, but that doesn't mean that it won't 30 degrees once the sun starts to go down.

Travel Essentials: The Sleepover Kit

One of the best things about being an adult is that I no longer need to ask permission to stay over at my friend's house. Over the weekends I will often visit my friends out of town, and stay so late that it makes more sense for me to stay the night than drive home. 

I adore travel size items, so putting together a little overnight bag was the perfect excuse to stock up on them. I found the cute polka dot bag at Forever 21, and stocked up on the travel sizes at Target and beauty stores.
