I’m here to say that rice crispy treats have always been a mediocre dessert in my book. I eat and enjoy the sticky, crunchy bars, but they fall far below a good chocolate chip cookie, a piece of cake, or even a crumble. I thought all rice crispy treats were about the same, improving with a higher butter and marshmallow to cereal ratio, until I had these salted brown butter rice crispy treats.
This project goes way back into the beginning of Fall 2017 when I first set my eyes on the Leith Ruched Body-con Tank Dress on Instagram on possibly ever fashion blogger ever. So flattering and so versatile, I couldn’t believe the number of outfit opportunities I saw for it. Whether it was dressed up for a dinner with heels and a great bag, or dressed down with sneakers, a baseball cap, and a sweatshirt tied around the waist, I knew I needed one of my own.

Many weeks ago now, my family and I hosted a bridal shower for my sweet soon-to-be sister in law! She has the cutest vintage mixed with eclectic style, and we decided to host a fun little tea party to celebrate the upcoming wedding.
And just like that, Valentine’s Day is a week away! With all of the wedding events happening, the Super Bowl was the last thing on my mind on Sunday, so I decided to bring heart shaped whoopie pies to the party we attended to try to fit in a little Valentine’s day celebrating before it passed me by.

So remember when we were planning out Adriana’s small apartment layout and decor plans back in November? Well, she has finally moved in and we have some updates to share!

In order to do that, it was very DIY and required some planning, but it turned out to be such a great time where we focused on spending time together and showering the bride-to-be.
(Yes, I did theme every itinerary item with Bridesmaids quotes…)
Well, as it so happens, folks, we’ve had two days of snow in Houston in one Winter season. It’s true insanity after living here for eight years and only seeing snow one other time, but I’ll take a day working at home and the best soup weather there ever was! And really, truly, there’s nothing I like better than a big bowl of tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich.
As promised, I’m sharing some of my travel tidbits from my trip to the United Kingdom, or the UK for short, over the holidays! A group of friends and I jetted over to Edinburgh for New Year’s Eve, better known as Hogmanay, and then took the train down to London for five days. This leads into today’s blog post: 8 days, one carry on, one personal item, and a whole lot of cold weather – can it be done? Continue reading “How to Pack for a Week in the UK Winter in a Carry On”
