Oriental Grilled Chicken Salad

My favorite recipes on hot summer days are ones that are colorful and fresh, grilled, and take as little time to prep/cook as possible. I mean, I don’t know about you but my cook top/oven gives off so much heat that it’s sometimes just unbearable in the summer time! Plus, in the summer months I […]

The Best Kind of LBD

I’ve mentioned before that I’m not much of a little black dress girl. Yes, I know the value of a great LBD. Yes, I know that it is one of greatest closet staples of all time… but I just didn’t find myself ever reaching for the LBDs I’d collected over the years. I would opt […]

Summer R+R in Embroidered Shorts

I cannot believe another week of the summer has quite literally zipped by! Our weekend was so full and busy with back to back to back summer birthday celebrations Friday-Sunday that by Sunday I just didn’t have it in me for any clothes other than super comfy ones (aka shorts with an elastic waistband, winning) […]

 Picnic with Heinen’s #SummerwithHeinens

There are certain summer activities that are more like annual traditions for the local Clevelander: BBQs at your favorite aunt’s house, pool days with your littles, ice cream dates at Chagrin Falls Popcorn shop, or picnics at your favorite Metropark. I have vivid memories growing up doing all of these each year + they have […]

Flirty Off The Shoulder

Date night, my favorite night of the week! 😉 It’s always so nice to get out for a bit with my husband and enjoy a little relaxation + adult convo (where we don’t speak in gushy baby voices to our son and sing-song everything and clap- hah) + since our son we have been making […]

Classic Summer Time

Happy Monday lovies! I cannot believe how fast this summer is zipping by! The weather has been kind of funny lately, like summer just can’t decide if it wants to stay warm + sunny (pool days everyday please!) or chilly + rainy, or somewhere in between. Most days I’m living in cut off shorts or […]

Happy food Friday loves! Today’s recipe comes to you courtesy of the little Thai basil plant growing on my front porch. I’ve named her Tina. 😉 I’ve been working very hard day in + day out to keep all my little plants alive this summer (trying to turn that black thumb a little green this […]
