6 Healthy, Delicious Recipes for 2015

Personally I love cooking, but I know I’m in the minority. When I think about it, what honestly got me interested in cooking was looking at mouthwatering photos on food blogs. Many blogs often have step-by-step photos too, which definitely helped when I was starting out and learning to cook. 

Besides being budget-friendly, cooking at home is probably the easiest way to get or stay healthy. Here are some favorites to help you stay on your A game this year!

January Skincare Faves

I picked up some things recently that I am loving for this cold weather we are having.  First, I am a huge fan of L'Occitane products, especially the hand cream.  I keep a travel size version of the Shea Butter Handcream in every purse I own.  I especially can't travel without it as it seems like whenever I travel to a different region the water dries out my skin so badly and I can't stand dry hands!  (Tip: If you are flying international, pick it up at the duty free store, it saves you a buck or two on the retail price - I was able to get it for $10 one time and of course saves you on tax!)

Well, for holiday they came out with the L'Occi Box and I knew I had to get my hands on it!  Look at all the mini hand creams that came in it!  I always loved the travel size ones but these mini ones are so awesome to keep in my bags.  They are all different fragrances too which I normally don't love but I don't mind these fragrances at all and plus they don't linger so it's not like you are smelling them all day.

I am totally loving Emma Stone’s style and especially her red carpet looks are always so amazing. She always looks glam but not over the top. She recently wore a gorgeous sparkly top with black pants, a look that I just adore. I wanted to put together an outfit that was a bit inspired by her but also appropriate for my style and everyday wear.
