How to Make a Starbucks Iced Latte at Home

How to Make a Starbucks Iced Latte at Home

If there is one thing you need to know about me is that I love coffee. Love isn't even a strong enough word I'm obsessed. Today I am going to show you how to make a Starbucks Iced Latte at home with the Ninja Coffee Bar. Now neither Starbucks nor Ninja is paying me for this. This is just how much I like both these brands. Isn't it funny in life when you are young and starting out in your careers or still in college you can spend $5 on a latte and not even think about it. But then when you're actually an adult with a real career and salary you wince at the thought of spending that much money on coffee.... I blame Dave Ramsey or maybe my Dad for making me aware of how much I used to spend on coffee.

How to make a shiplap headboard

How to make a shiplap headboard

Today I am sharing how to make a DIY shiplap headboard. Last week I had the pleasure of partnering up with Habitat for Humanity and 13 other bloggers to help style a Habitat House in Portland Connecticut. Each blogger paired up with another blogger and was assigned a room. I was lucky enough to style the teenage boys room with Stephanie from Sandpaper and Glue. So where did we start? Where we all start of course, Pinterest. The teenager created a Pinterest board that reflected his style. He liked a mix of clean lines, wood, industrial and technology.

Watermelon Agua Fresca

I am having so much fun trying out new cocktails each week and this might be my best one yet! A Watermelon Agua Fresca. Agua what?! Well I didn't even know what an Agua Fresca was until this week. All I knew was that I wanted to use watermelon and the new bottle of tequila I had just picked up. Honestly I had thought I made this drink up until I did some research

Strawberry Lemonade Fizz

Strawberry Lemonade Fizz

In the past year I have really started to become obsessed with seltzer. I stopped drinking soda and most juice at home and naturally seltzer was the next best thing, especially if it was Polar seltzer. Have your tried their summer flavors?!? (I am in no way affiliated with them I am just a big fan). I am also a big fan of spiked seltzers so why not put my own twist on that at home? Today I am sharing a super easy recipe for a Strawberry Lemonade Fizz.

Red, White and Blush Sangria Recipe

Red, White and Blush Sangria Recipe

If there's one thing I am known for it's my sangria recipe. I've been using the same recipe since college. My friends and I had perfected the base recipe and now we all have our own slight spin on it as adults. I recently made a large batch for my birthday and I just knew I had to share this perfect summertime drink. I may have a motive for sharing this recipe. I am often asked to make it for parties or family gatherings or I am asked how I make it and now I can just tell them to check the site ;)

I Bought a House Before I Turned 30!

I Bought a House Before I Turned 30!

Yes that's right... I bought a house before I turned 30 and on my own. I have been looking to buy a home for about a year. I looked in 2 states at over a hundred homes and lost a few along the way. A couple of years ago I read an article about millennials and how we were more likely to buy houses later in life because of how crippled we are in student debt. Right then I consciously made the decision that I wanted to buy a house before I turned 30 to break that stereotype along with a few other stereotypes about us.
