With Earth Day just around the corner, I wanted to share with you some of my newest favorite things in my effort to be sustainable! Stasher Bags Stashers are my latest obsession. These bags are your eco friendly replacement for ziplock baggies made of silicone and are of course reusable. They’re good for storing dog treats, fruits, veggies and sandwiches on the go but also great for cooking. You can purchase the larger stasher bags to marinate chicken or poach salmon in since the bags can withstand heat. Find Stasher Bags online, at Anthropologie, Goop and even Target (although Target doesn’t…

I had so much fun a couple of weeks ago collaborating with these Michigander boss babes! We all met at Salsaria’s – the best Mexican restaurant – seriously it is so delicious – for our collab shoot.

We haven’t actually had a ton of snow yet which means you don’t have to completely bundle up. I can (kind of) get away with wearing a midi skirt and booties, but still need a giant puffer jacket. I’ve linked a few skirts that I love below including this one which is on sale that are similar to this one with slits and fun…

People throw away 25% more trash between Thanksgiving & New Year’s than any other time of the year. In an attempt to go against the norm and throw away less this holiday season, I put together a few tips for living your best environmentally friendly holiday season ever! Ask your guests to bring containers for leftovers (or bring take your own with you). We all know they are going to happen because it’s almost impossible to eat all of that food so bring your own containers to take home your leftovers in. This way you are saving potential plastic bags,…
