1. Books I’ve read this week: Flat Out Love & Hopeless – if you’re a teenage girl, you’ll most likely love this one (and I, at times am a teenage girl so I really liked this book)

2. This braided up do would be perfect for a wedding or an engagement.

3. Strawberry almond milk! Not a whole lot more you can say about that! And homemade!

4. My love for coconut knows no bounds. I need to make these! You may need to make them too.

5. These bags!

6. A very delicious summery breakfast.

  • pour cold brew coffee into a glass
  • choose your milk- almond milk, coconut milk, cream- add as much as you’d like

1. This amazing, sweet, heaven on earth is going into my iced coffee!

2. Wouldn’t this be perfect for a wedding, an engagement session, an elopement?

3. It’s May. What does that mean? Cinco de Mayo. And what does that mean? We should eat anything and everything Mexican for this whole month! Let’s start with this!

4. I need this.

5. I’m still on that whole “trying” to quit coffee thing or at least trying to lower my intake and this looks like it could help.

6. Hello! Cute, modest swimsuit!

7. Summer is right around the corner. So, naturally these all will come in handy.
