My Newest Drink Craze + Life Talk

I’ve been finding myself gravitating from coffee and opting more and more for hot tea this season. Yogi, Traditional Medicinal Teas, and Celestial Seasonings have been my go to drinks lately. Yogi’s Roasted Dandelion Spice and Celestial Teahouse’s Dirty Chai have been my wake up and get me through the work day teas. Celestial’s Sleepytime Sinus Soother is my all time favorite sleep/sick tea combo, but it’s been super hard to find at the store. I wish I remember where I picked it up, so I’ll probably just use my Amazon Prime to get it again. I’ve been super sick lately, so the Throat Coat with Lemon Echinacea has been a lifesaver for both me and Aaron. He’s really been digging the Breathe Easy, but I’m not a huge fan of the taste. Nighty Night gave me and Aaron both some SUPER strange dreams, but some of the most restful sleep […]

White Watermelon Summer Sangria

I’m well known with my close friends for making ah-mazing homemade sangria. Probably because I had my sangria phase. No seriously, there was a fresh pitcher of sangria in my fridge every weekend (read: daily) for about a solid year. I was known for showing up to a gathering with a pitcher in my hand. Benefits of living in the same apartment complex as your best friends, easy transportation. I’m not much of a white wine drinker. I tend to like my wine dark, like my coffee, wardrobe, and soul. That being said, there is nothing like a Riesling sometimes. It’s like Riesling was created for sangria. Trust me on this. It’s my secret to success. Okay, let’s not go that far, but still. As I was cutting up a decent sized watermelon from Aldi for my weekly meal prep, I couldn’t help but think how perfect it would go […]

My Newest Summer Go-To Drink

Between going to school full time, picking up a new job, trying to work part/full time, applying for graduation and jobs, finals, case studies, presentations, Koda, family, and friends I’ve pretty much been MIA –all for good reasons though! I normally jot down a few blog post ideas during my week and then complete them during the weekends, but I’ve been so busy my list has just kept growing and growing. Good news for you all though! I’ll have a TON of new posts coming soon! I feel like right now is crunch time for everyone.  Everyone’s scrambling to get things together and prepare for summer.  Even if it’s not summer quite yet, the weather here in Morgantown is definitely starting to feel like summer.  Of course this means it’s time to switch up my drink order at Starbucks. I have two summer go-to drinks. If I’m just looking for […]

Simple Protein Sunrise Bowls

Thursday mornings are always hectic in my apartment.  It doesn’t matter if I wake up 3 hours before I need to leave for class or 30 minutes, I will find a way to utilize every single minute.  In a perfect morning routine, I get to sneak in quick workout, make a big breakfast while I brew a pot of coffee, watch the Today Show, cuddle and have playtime with Koda, organize my planner for the day, catch up on social media/e-mails, take my time getting ready, and tidy up after myself along the way.  If only life was perfect… In actuality, I have to spend five minutes convincing myself to leave puppy cuddles and get out of my warm, cozy bed.  I waste five more minutes debating if washing my hair is a priority or not (hint: it isn’t).  I attempt to shower without Koda deciding he misses me so […]
