Girls in the City


Girls in the City

My best friend and her roommate are visiting this weekend for their spring break and I couldn’t be more excited! We have a lot on our sight-seeing agenda! Some must-see places so far are:

>>The Golden Gate Bride, Marin Headlands
>>Alcatraz
>>Boudin Bakery
>>Cable Car ride to and from Union Square
>>A day exploring Haight & Ashbury, possibly Mission St.
>>Stags Leap Winery, Napa
>>V. Sattui Winery, Napa,
>>Domaine Chandon or Domaine Carneros Winery
>>Bouchon Bakery, Yountville
>>Oakville Grocery, Healdsburg, for a nice picnic

Our group is definitely a stop and smell the flowers type of adventurers, so I know we will discover more treasures beyond the basic tourist hot spots. Pictures and details of all we did to come next week!

XOXO, MT

“You’re craving…


“You’re craving creative freedom at work… Offer to jazz up the company letterhead, or redecorate your office. Watch your happiness factor spike.”

Glamour’s April issue nailed my horoscope! This pretty much sums up how I feel every week.

Boredom Turned Bliss


Boredom Turned Bliss

When I’m not re-decorating, traveling, or shopping, somehow I have to pay the bills. During the day you’ll find me working at a french bakery named La Boulange. Sometimes the day is really slow and I like to create yummy concoctions to snack on. Yesterday was one of those days, but I failed to take a picture!

I came up with a refreshing, hit-the-spot, thirst quenching smoothie:

>>Fill your cup 3/4 full with ice
>>Add 1/2 cup greek yogurt
>>Add a handful of chopped pineapple (approx. 1/2 cup)
>>Fill cup 1/2 way with fresh squeezed orange juice
>>Blend with a mixer (I only had a hand mixer available and it turned out beautifully)
>>Sip your way to Summer!

Everyone at the bakery was begging me to make them one after they tasted it so I know you’ll like it too!

I found a recipe pretty similar to mine if you want to use exact measurements click here: http://www.edamam.com/recipe/coconut-pineapple-orange-smoothie-97e1a199b58e592b1ce35c32ba2483b4/pineapple

I’ve been wanting to create my own blog for quite some time now and finally just kicked the excuses out of the way and did it! Hope you like what you see and will join me on my journey to finding my dream job, creating a family, and gushing over the latest trends and topics. I’m excited for this creative outlet and starting something new. New posts coming soon!

XOXO, MT
