Life Lately

The Casual Classic

Wedding season with my love, (Washington, Connecticut). Wearing probably my absolute favorite dress to date - splurge on this one you guys, you will not regret it.

Kind of healthy, yet not really, gluten-free cheesecake. I mean, how healthy can cheesecake (made with cream cheese) really get?! I used the real stuff too (organic of course). Recipe here.

Not sure why this hollow back handstand pose is SO DARN HARD for me, but I'm getting there! Practice practice practice.

Finally made it out to Sunday in Brooklyn for Nick's birthday. Incredible menu, full of light, healthy, delicious small plates. Highly recommend  the chicken drumsticks (SO good), and the super unique craft cocktails ("Champagne Problems" specifically, because it has beets, mint, and is so delicious).

I had the opportunity to spend 4th of July at the most incredible house I've probably ever stayed at. I spent the weekend in this pool, getting some much needed vitamin D, and explored the town of Amaganssett (which I'm entirely obsessed with now - so cute!).

I've been on a huge matcha kick these past few months and have finally gotten to a point where I can make a great one at home. It's become my daily morning routine. I originally purchased Sunfood matcha, but it just wasn't the kind I love in a drink (its the type that would work better with baking). So a couple weeks ago, I finally splurged on some real, true, matcha. Yes, it's pricey, but it's much cheaper than going and buying a $5 latte every day! Stay tuned for a post on how I make my matcha lattes soon!

One more shot of this dress, because it really is that good.

Cutest shop in Amaganssett - I wanted all the baskets! I can't remember the name, but it was on the right hand side as you're just entering town.

I couldn't get enough of this bathroom, which was in the house we rented while in Washington, CT for the wedding. Goals.

Meat sauce is on repeat in our household. Warming, hearty, healthy, and delicious, it's the perfect meal (and we always have leftovers for the next day). Throw it over some zucchini noodles for a lighter dish in the summer! Recipe here.

One of my favorite views of NYC.

Slightly obsessed with all the Beautycounter products I just stocked up on, this mask being one of them. It brightens, firms, lifts, and gives my face this fresh and clean glow in 10 minutes flat. To top it off, it's non-toxic and full of natural ingredients. But then again, I wouldn't let anything else touch my skin, would I?

I've just recently started putting brazil nuts in my smoothies. Did you know that only one a day gives you 100% of your daily intake of selenium?! Pretty cool, and a very easy way to get it in.
