This post is sponsored by AVA Grace Vineyards. Los Angeles may be known for sunny weather, but even though it's generally beautiful year-round, summer is when the city truly comes alive. Beautiful scenery, delicious food and fun outdoor activities are everywhere regardless of the season, but there's something extra special about enjoying them this time of year. The days are longer, the nights are warmer, and there's a palpable enthusiasm in the air from tourists and locals, eager to soak it all up. It's my favorite season, and each time it rolls around I'm reminded of why I feel so...

With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I thought I'd share some festive recipe ideas in case you're looking for some last minute inspiration: "Rosey Rocky Road"...

Dinner, Food
My boyfriend and I are heading to Thailand over Thanksgiving, and although we're very excited, we are also sad to be missing out on one of the most anticipated meals of the year with our families. It's always a little strange to be away from home during the holidays, so I wanted to throw an impromptu Thanksgiving dinner together this week to combat some of our holiday FOMO. With the exception of a quick do it yourself rosemary centerpiece, I created a tablescape with items I already had around my apartment; a rustic burlap table runner layered over some cheesecloth, votives filled with romantic tea...

I'd love to pretend that I eat healthy most of the time, but I'd be lying if I told you that was the case. My sweet tooth knows no bounds, and I'm pretty sure I've never made it a full day without carbs. Needless to say, I'm not a big believer in dietary restrictions, but I do believe in the importance of incorporating essential nutrients into your diet. I've gotten pretty good about working fruit and vegetables into my daily routine (as mentioned in this post via smoothies and green juices), but hitting every category of the food pyramid can be a...
