She Eats: A Cinnamon & Citrus Breakfast

If any of you know me, you know that I am NOT a morning person. I don't enjoy getting up before 7, I have to drag myself out of bed by tooth and nail if the sun is not up yet, and I am generally not a pleasant person to be around before 9. BUT...

I have a well-known recipe (and in my culinarily-lacking state, I most certainly refer to this as a "recipe") that takes less than 5 minutes to make and is tasty nonetheless. Give it a taste and let me know what you think!

What's your morning (bread and) jam?

February OOTDs


It may come as no surprise when I say that I love pink. It's quite possible I would wear pink every day for a month if given the opportunity, and if ever there were an opportunity, it would be in February. AKA now! Thus, I have compiled my favorite pink OOTDs into a post dedicated to the color of the month (we'll just disregard the fact that I overdo pink in too many months to make this one any more special) ;)

Valentine's Day Mini Tea Party


A sweet way to celebrate Valentine's Day single or in the ever-popular Galentine's Day mode. Continue on to see a How-To on the details.

1. Washi Tape Flag

As straight-forward as it sounds, this cute flag is simply washi tape wrapped around a toothpick.

2. Mini Platter

First, acquire two coasters. Cut napkins to fit around the area of the coaster (coaster #1) and then cut a patterned ring from the previous cut-out (coaster #2). Cover both coasters with the napkins, then carefully poke a toothpick through the two coasters, being mindful to keep enough space between to hold the sweets. Add more layers depending on the sturdiness of the coasters!

Now that that's taken care of, it's time to eat! Bon appétit, mes amis!

Sweet and Spicy Scentsy Valentines


 As we start the lovely month of February, we also start preparing for perhaps the sweetest holiday of them all: Valentine's Day! Here I am sharing a last-minute gift you can make ahead of time (or at the last minute) for some of your gal pals.

You Will Need:

  • A chocolate box
  • A wax pack (I used Café Au Lait and Pink Velvet as shown below)
  • A Scentsy pot or candle warmer (or your preferred method of melting wax if it differs from the already mentioned methods)

What To Do:

1. Eat the chocolate. EAT ALL THE CHOCOLATE!!!

2. Take two cubes of your chosen scented wax and melt them until liquidified.

3. *OPTIONAL* You may want to spray the inside of your chocolate box with cooking spray to ensure the cubes come out more easily after gifting.

4. Carefully pour the melted wax into the mold and let cool. This usually takes about 5 minutes.

5. I highly recommend including a note in the box which states that the contents are INEDIBLE wax to prevent consumption by a loved (or at least liked) one.

6. Give to a friend, family member, or coworker!

These boxes can be used for spicing up a workspace, air-freshening a car, etc.! Or remove the cubes and, loosely wrapped so they don't rub off, place in a drawer, cabinet, or shoes to liven the air and give off a pleasant scent.

Happy Valentine's Day!
