In late April/early May, my mom and I started prepping the garden beds. They were quite bare and we spent a little too much time at the nursery stocking up on countless flowers and plants. Since it’s mid-summer and the garden is in full bloom, I thought I’d share some before and after pictures of how the garden has transformed over the past couple of months.
I received a Fitbit Charge for my birthday this year and it has quickly become one of my favorite gifts. I thought it would be fun to share some pros and cons, and what I think of it after using it every day for over a month.
The Fitbit Charge is a fitness tracking device that snaps onto your wrist. Like I mentioned before, I received mine as a gift but you can purchase one at Target, Best Buy, or Kohl’s. Depending on what you want to use it for, there are other types of Fitbits that do different things such as the Fitbit Flex and the FitBit Charge HR. Do some research to see what type of Fitbit best fits your needs.
The Charge tracks your steps, distance, calories burned, and the amount of floors you climb. It syncs to your phone via bluetooth to the free Fitbit app that keeps track of all of your information.
Confession: I can’t braid my hair. I can wand and curl my hair like a pro, create the perfect bun, and I’ve recently mastered the blow out (something that took me years to do), but I could never quite get the hang of braiding.
It’s been overwhelming hot this week (95 feels like 101 with 100% humidity) which means that it’s not good hair weather. Blowing out my hair is not an option, and just wearing it down in general is not a good idea (hello sweat!). Buns and braids are the only real option and I would like to change up my look and wear a braid for a change instead of my go-to messy bun that I sport regularly. Read More
I’ve been on a bit of a documentary kick lately. I’ve only really watched a few (Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead; Food Inc.) and that was when I was in school and watched them in class. I was browsing Netflix the other day and found Fed Up. I had heard a lot about this documentary but never watched it, so I decided to give it a try. I was hooked and when it was over I continued to browse Netflix for more. Here are the three that I’m loving lately. Read More

This homemade bruschetta recipe is super simple and takes only minutes to make. It’s perfect for using fresh vegetables from your garden or the local farmer’s market. Read More
