I’ve loved shrimp since I was a little kid. I actually had the most ridiculously expensive taste. My favorite meal? An appetizer of shrimp cocktail and steamed clams followed by an entrée of either lazy man’s lobster or prime rib, medium rare. You would think I had been raised in a palace with a full [...]
I read Amy Poeppel's novel Small Admissions in less than two days. It felt like I was reading about my friend group. Well, more like I was hearing about the drama surrounding a friend of a friend over cocktails, in the sense that you can't help but be interested because it's juicy but doesn't affect your own [...]
Yesterday, I treated myself to a massage. Well, that’s a stretch…it was free at my gym because I referred a new client. But, let’s pretend that’s something I could afford to do on a whim. Anyway, it was amazing. I have decided that insurance companies should cover massages like they do a psychiatrist visit. Not [...]
I've been trying to stay on track in terms of diet and exercise, but my sweet tooth never lets up. You know those people that say if you give up sweets for 21 days you never crave them again? I beg to differ. Luckily, when you put a vegetable inside a cookie, it becomes healthy. [...]
I posted these Buffalo Turkey Zucchini Boats to my Instagram story the other day. I was bummed because I was too eager to eat that I didn't take any appetizing photos. But apparently they looked good to you guys anyway...because a bunch of you messaged me for the recipe! You could cover pretty much anything [...]
It's Valentine's Day! And, while I've never had a "real" Valentine, the holiday celebrates a few things I'm fond of: pink, chocolate, and love! This year, I'm more about self-love than ever. Don't forget to show yourself some appreciation—today and every day! Colorfully Yours, Haley All images via Pinterest.
Think Netflix show 13 Reasons Why meets book-turned-movie Gone Girl. That's how I'd describe Mindy Mejia's novel, Everything You Want Me to Be. While the novel focuses on a high-schooler, it's anything but light. We learn right off the bat that the protagonist, Hattie, has been brutally murdered. What we don't know is who did it—or why. The story is [...]
Hey, friends! If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably noticed by now that I've been really into meal prepping this month. If you don't follow me, I'm sorry for your loss. Kidding... Anyway, the past four Sundays, I've spent the day cooking meals for the week ahead. This has helped accomplish a few goals: [...]
We’ve all had that talk with a friend. That “you’re so much better than him” talk. That friend usually looks us as with sad, ashamed eyes. “I know,” she’ll say, as she looks down. But things don’t change. We tell her over and over that she deserves so much more. We list her best qualities [...]
I'm a total quote hoarder. You probably didn't even know that was a thing, but here I am. On the heels of my 2018 New Year's resolutions post, I wanted to share some that have been speaking to me lately. I hope they speak to you, too! Colorfully Yours, Haley All images are from Pinterest.
