  • Curt and I will be somewhere in Sedona on #MemorialDay aka our 1 year wedding anniversary (ah!) so before we leave I thought I’d share this delicious and festive dessert recipe with you! I’m calling this the cookies and “cream” berry parfait but that’s just a fancy term for layers of berries, sprinkled cookies and @stonyfield yogurt. This recipe is for two but feel free to double, triple or quadruple for your crowd! #ad⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
RECIPE:⠀
-1 cup @stonyfield whole milk yogurt (greek works great for this!)⠀
-1/2 cup fresh blueberries⠀
-1/2 cup chopped fresh strawberries⠀
-2 cookies (I used @foodstirs organic sugar cookies)⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
DIRECTIONS:⠀
Layer a 1/3 of the yogurt first followed by the berries and then the cookies. Repeat x 2.⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
PRO TIP:⠀
-Make these in mason jars so you can put a lid on them and make them portable for your Memorial Day party plans!⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What are you guys up to for Memorial Day aka how are you celebrating our anniversary?!🤣⠀

  • 100% human and 100% still trying to figure out my relationship with social media...⠀⠀
It's a funny thing growing up with and ON the internet. I've captured so much of my life prior to but especially after starting THM. I was in my early 20s when I bought the domain and now I'm turning 30 in a few months. So much has changed and so too has my relationship with what I choose to share and what I keep private.⠀⠀
And quite honestly, these feelings change all the time.⠀⠀
I don't have it all figured out and I guess that's what makes me human. Alls to say, if you struggle with it too, you're not alone. Here's to trying our best🙌⠀⠀

  • In the beautiful words of @drchristianenorthrup, "goddesses never age". AMEN to that! Today on the podcast I'm chatting with Dr. Northrup all about menopause, how to age like a goddess and how to embrace our hormonal changes throughout our lifetime. This is the 4th episode of my women's health series and I feel like each episode gets better and better🙌 Link in bio for the full episode or listen on your favorite podcast player.⠀

P.S. This gorgeous painting is by my friend @wadulisiwoman and I am deeply honored to have it in my home. Thank you Ash for parting ways with this and allowing me to step into my own goddess power. And yes, Ash was the beautiful human who gifted me with my tattoo earlier this year. So much love for you!⠀

  • Clearly I'm not the only one digging the new @rebbl flavors! But in all seriousness I swear I don't try to use my dog for sponsored posts...I just trained him so well as a puppy to pose with the camera that he now thinks he gets treats when we pull it out🤷🏻♀⠀
I wish I could share this @rebbl with him but it's got chocolate so sorry buddy! The new Protein Mint Chip is actually insane and only has 4 grams of sugar (for those of you who wanted less sugar in rebbls your prayers have been answered!) and 16 grams of protein! Plus ashwagandha, maca and reishi. Pro tip: Pour half over ice and mix with almond milk. Add a splash of coffee (I drink decaf) and you have yourself the BEST mint chip mocha you will ever try! #ad #rebbl #plantbased
  • Is oatmeal even possible without chocolate?! Don't answer that...⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I've been blogging for 6 years and I have over 500 recipes on THM! While I don't exclusively post recipes anymore, sharing delicious eats with you guys is still something that I'm passionate about and well...we have at least 3 meals a day to eat🤷🏻 @jessmfranks and I are always in the kitchen innovating new recipes for you but let's not forget the archives! So I've decided I'll be sharing some of my favorite recipes on THM here on IG to hopefully help inspire you to get cooking or try out a new recipe.⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This Chocolate Almond Butter Overnight Oats recipe is basically my daily breakfast recipe lately. It couldn't be easier and it's so SO delicious...plus chocolate! As always, link in bio for the recipe!⠀

  • This week is a little different for my Clean Beauty 5x5 review! Rather than a morning and an evening I'm talking through the best natural highlighters and giving my honest reviews of each. Truthfully, each one lasted really well, it's just a matter of preference! Let me know in the comments if you have a favorite!

1. Vapour Halo Illuminator: http://bit.ly/2BnxxyL
2. Maya Chia Highlighting Serum (Golden Hour): http://bit.ly/2HlJrug
3. RMS Living Luminizer: http://bit.ly/2z8Bx2A
4. Rituel de Fille Rare Light Luminzer (Stellaris): http://bit.ly/2HhSM7m
5. PYT Beauty Highlighter (Courtside): http://bit.ly/2JhLFht
6. Lily Lolo Highlighter (champagne): http://bit.ly/2HkBBRw

OVERALL THOUGHTS:  I honestly like all of them for different reasons. They also all will last a very long time so worth the investment. My go-tos are the Vapour Halo, Living Luminizer and Maya Chia Drops. All the others are great options though and many different price points. Can't really go wrong! ----------------------------------------­­---------------------------------------­-­--

  • NEW RECIPE// Well kind of...@JessMFranks and I have been going through old posts that could use a little sprucing up and some much needed picture updates (RIP to the original photos shot on my iPhone4🤣) to make them even better for you. These Crispy Sweet Potato Fries (made in the oven!) were originally posted in 2013 and required you to soak the fries before baking to help them crisp up. After much testing Jess figured out soaking could be skipped if you coated the fries with a very special ingredient...any guesses? You can thank her for saving you an hour and making the BEST sweet potato fries out there. Link in bio for the full recipe👍🏻⁣

  • Most challenges in life come with a purpose. Sometimes those challenges are big and sometimes they may seem trivial. My curly hair might seem trivial to you but it’s always been a big challenge to me.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As a recovering perfectionist, I spent most of my life trying to get my hair to look a certain way. I straightened and dyed and poked and prodded and desperately tried to change what I was naturally given. Society told me that curls were messy and unruly and GOD FORBID anyone think I’m messy and unruly.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But guess what? I AM MESSY AND UNRULY. I’m also beautiful and unpredictable and big and loud and proud. Why not have my hair be a reflection of that? So while I still have days when I’d kill to be able to run my fingers through my hair, I’m learning to embrace what I’ve got…lessons come in all shapes and sizes (and hairstyles too!).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
P.S. updated haircare video coming soon!
