I am not entirely sure how I feel about this past week. It’s was busy, at times intense, but it wasn’t a bad week. Other than being a bit tired, I would even go as far as to say that this has been a pretty good week. Either way I am still ready for the weekend and the bliss that comes from two uninterrupted days away from the office. I am finding myself not entirely sure what to do with my days off though, I’d like to be productive, but how and how much is very much in debate at this point. I have the chance to knock a last item or two from my 30 before 31, but then again, I could also just bake and get ready for the new week. Man, do I sound old and boring. We’ll see; I am a little disappointed that I didn’t knock as many things off my list as I’d hoped, so that might end up being the push I need to structure my weekend. What do you have planned?
I need this gorgeous iridescent vegan bag in my life.
This string garden looks like a really fun way to kick off spring.
To be completely honest, I wasn’t a huge fan of a lot of the accessories trends debuted during fashion month, but I could definitely get behind these ear pieces.
Gift boxes are always fun to receive, and I am thinking about sending this one to some of my long distance friends with impending birthdays.
Grilled cheese is almost always a good idea; I am thinking about trying this one out this weekend.
Who cares about age appropriate, I think this would be an amazing theme for the next time I have the girls over for brunch.
It’s important to realize that it is okay to be not okay.
I’ve been thinking about purchasing an air fryer, this review has me leaning a little more towards “yes”, but then again I’d also like to be able to fry fresh things as well as frozen so we’ll see.

This recipe came to me courtesy of one of my west coast friends Verhanika. She is entrepreneur, mother, blogger (Issues & Tissues), and all around bad-ass boss bitch. We met freshman year of college and have been friends ever since. In some of our recent phone conversations, she’d mentioned making herself a Chocolate Chai to enjoy while were on the phone or to wind down in the evenings. Finally I broke down and asked for the recipe because it sounded amazing, and it was.
1. In a small sauce pan over medium heat combine chips and cover with milk. 2. As the chips start melting add your chai mix. 3. Whisk ingredients together until chocolate is fully melted and integrated into the liquid. 4. Carefully, pour into a tall mug, or two smaller mugs, and enjoy!
- The ambiguity on the milk measurement is to allow for people who’d prefer a smaller quantity of beverage or for a more concentrated flavor. Personally, I go for the 1 1/2 cup 😉
- If you can’t get your hands on the chai mix, you can steep 2 chai tea bags in the hot milk and then finish with a tbsp or two of sugar to add additional sweetness.
- This beverage is already pretty amazing on its own, but if you want to take completely over the top, you can garnish the final product with a dollop of whipped cream and dusting of cinnamon.
