Can you believe 4th of July weekend is right around the corner?! What plans do you have for the weekend/holiday? I’m heading to LA on Friday for a week and I’m starting to get really excited! The upcoming holiday is actually what inspired me to write this post. 4th of July is the perfect time for a BBQ with family and friends, and what’s more fun that creating holiday inspired cocktails? However, as you guys probably know, I’ve been trying really hard to reach my fitness goals, and drinking a ton of empty calories is definitely not my idea of a celebration. That’s why I’m excited to partner up with Perrier for this post to bring you my favorite 4th of July inspired cocktails!
Hey lovelies! By now, I think you’ve noticed that I love to bake. One of my latest creations has been this delicious Sour Cream Cardamom Pear Cake (Recipe is from Food52). This cake was slightly more difficult to make than the Olive Oil Cake (see here!), but it actually took less time and my hubby is OBSESSED with it! I wasn’t sure how I would feel about the cardamom, especially after tasting it in the batter (it was SO strong it almost shocked me lol). However, after it was done baking, it was way less intense. Have any of you tried a sour cream cardamom pear cake? I guess cardamom is a Middle Eastern spice, which is what inspired me to make this cake!
Morning b-list fam! Today I’m sharing the oldest date night idea in the book -> a dinner date night! Yep, that’s right, I’m basic. Lol, but seriously though, sometimes there is no better date than the ones where you and your man get a little dressed up and go out to a nice dinner. It doesn’t have to be anything expensive, just somewhere new 🙂 I don’t know why, but this always makes me feel a little special, and being a little dressed up makes Eihab and I laugh and flirt the night away 🙂 Also, since the weather is turning colder and we live in Portland, I thought I’d share some places that we really enjoy going for a nice date night! And of course, since this is also a style blog, I’ve teamed up with Full Addition to help bring you guys the perfect winter date night look 😉
Hello lovelies! Today’s post is a bit different than the usual because I really wanted to share with you my favorite fall treat – Pumpkin Spice Coffee Cake! I’m a lover of anything pumpkin spice during the fall season, and I recently ran across this recipe on the blog Joyful Healthy Eats.
