Suit Up

Swimsuits-1-Design-Crush

Triangle Top/High Bottom Set

Last week it hit me that Memorial Day Weekend, aka the Unofficial Start of Summer, was only a few weeks away and I needed a new swimsuit stat. I have a one-piece from last year tucked away in a drawer, but was never that in love with it and wanted something fresh. After a bit of searching I settled on a pair of black high-waisted bottoms and a floral printed long-line underwire bustier top. (A tip for busty girls: always try and buy swimwear according to your cup size.) Here are thirteen other favorites I came across during The Hunt.

Matcha 12 Ways

I had my first experience with matcha a few years ago in a tea shop in Oklahoma City. So what is the stuff exactly? Matcha is a finely ground powder of specially grown and processed green tea. Now that’s not so intimidating, right? Turns out you can make all kinds of delicious things with it besides tea and lattes, too. Read on for twelve of them.

Easter Stuffs

This year Easter is going to be exceptionally low-key in my family. One person will be out of town at the NCAA basketball tournament, a few people just moved into a new house and are still getting settled, and yet a few others have to work. Some holidays are just like that, and this is one of them. I’ll still be dyeing eggs Saturday as usual and maybe even making a batch of hot cross buns for the first time ever! Love these twenty ideas for fun DIYs and egg decorating below.

Spring may be making its long-awaited arrival this week, at least here in Pennsylvania, temperatures are in the 60s and 70s and there’s lots of rain on the horizon. I’m ready to vanquish my winter coat to the closet and rely on something a little lighter – like maybe one of these cheeky sweatshirts?

Have you ever made a dutch baby pancake or tried one? I attempted to bake one a few years ago and failed miserably, haven’t tried again since. The thing is they supposedly aren’t difficult to make and I think I need to try again. These twelve variations look like a great place to start.

Write It All Down

January and February always leave me scrambling to write down all of the ideas and plans running rampant in my head for the coming year. Not in my phone or in an email draft, but by actually putting pen to paper. Making these thoughts tangible seems to make them more attainable, and I’m not about to mess with that kind of magic!

Spaghetti Squash 12 Ways

I was first introduced to spaghetti squash back in the 90s when my mom was on a clean eating diet. Being a picky teenage vegetarian at that time, I fell hard for the weird squash that took on the form of one of my favorite foods. These days it’s everywhere, and in about a hundred more forms and recipes – here are twelve I’d love to try.
