Rice Krispie Treats 12 Ways

August means back-to-school and school means rice krispie treats – it’s simple math really. When I was in elementary school few kids had crazy food allergies like today, so it was always exciting when one of my classmates had a birthday and their parents sent along a classroom treat to celebrate. My favorite was always rice krispie treats. I loved their texture and the sticky way they pull apart, and I still do. Check out these twelve recipes for some creative takes on the classic!

Hot on the heels of the enamel pin trend is another – embroidered patches. As the temperature slowly starts to dip into autumn, jean jackets are being pulled out and patches being sewn and ironed on with abandon.  And after searching to the edges of the internet universe I’m back with 72 pieces of my favorite patch flair!

All Things Coffee

Maybe you’ve noticed the days getting shorter, or your kiddos are headed back to the classroom, or you just really love the stuff *raises hand*. It doesn’t feel like a day has truly begun until I’ve had a big mug of coffee. During the week I’m usually in a rush to get started working so I stick to standard drip in my Cuisinart, but when I have more time on the weekend to make coffee a ritual I opt for my french press or Chemex. I’m curious – how do you make yours?

Keep On Wearing White

White Drifter Midi Skirt

It’s hard to believe that Labor Day is only a few short weeks away, and with it the unofficial end of summer. Whatever you do don’t put away those warm weather whites until next year, rather transition them into fall with the rest of your wardrobe. Layer lighter pieces with a jean or moto jacket, maybe put on a pair of tights and boots, or even layer something with sleeves under something without. (It’s also an opportune time to troll your favorite sites for sales on all things summer!)

Let’s Talk Stairs

Art and Chic-Design Crush
Art and Chic

Let’s call staircases what they really are: a functional sculpture. If you live in a multistory home you’re lucky enough to have your very own. And while you might be thinking my staircase is definitely not a piece of art, there are plenty of ways to turn that on its head. Grab a can of paint – the most budget-friendly way to change most parts of your space – or lay down a rug for starters. Check out these ten traditional and modern flights for a dose of inspiration.

Snapbacks Are Where It’s At

Katin K Man Patch Snapback Hat

I’ve never been much of a hat girl, though I have plenty of aspirations. Last year I finally began to embrace cool weather loving wide brimmed hats so who knows, maybe snapbacks are next? Of course this style has been around for ages in sports, but lately I’m noticing more and more designs with a nod towards fashion.

Backpacks + Rucksacks

The Roll Top Backpack

It’s the first day of August, can you believe it? Almost time for back-to-school, football season, bonfires, and more of my favorite things, many of which require toting around a heavier load than my small saddlebag purse can accommodate. My go-to is a striped chambray backpack that I scored on sale last fall, it’s versatile enough to carry along on a hike or use as a weekend bag. Check out these thirteen backpacks that are both modern and functional.

Backyard Spaces

City Farmhouse-Design Crush
City Farmhouse

Aside from the guest room and a planned flower garden for the front of the house, the actual yard part of the backyard is all that’s left to take care of at my house. I’m forever futzing and rearranging but those are the only larger projects, and I think I’ve been delaying them for just that reason. I’ve taken care of the decks but I want the entire backyard to feel like an extension of living space. These spaces have accomplished that in spades and are full of inspiration!

Muesli 12 Ways

Muesli, aka raw oatmeal, came into my life several years ago on a business trip. I was looking for the healthiest option at the hotel’s grab and go breakfast and went for it, having no idea what I was eating other than cold oatmeal. But I really liked it and noticed how it kept me full for a long time, atypical for breakfast foods and my body. I’ve since made muesli for myself and am always looking for ways to mix it up and take advantage of seasonal fruit to add in. Check out these twelve recipes and let me know, are you a fan?
