Stone Tower Winery & On Mondays We Link-Up(#27)

We ventured out of the city a few months ago to visit some Virginia wineries! It is one of our favorite things to do when we want to take a quick day trip out of the city. On this trip we went to Stone Tower Winery, which is known for its beautiful outdoor spaces and sprawling scenery.

Keeping It Real With Purple Carrot

This post is about as real as it gets (sweaty post-gym attire included!) On a typical day I work 8-10 hours then head straight to the gym for an hour. When I’m done with all that (around 8 pm), the last thing I want to do is think about putting together a healthy meal, even when I’m starving. And that’s when I start making bad meal choices, because I am hungry and I don’t have a solid plan.        Lifestyle blogger Roxanne of Glass of Glam's review of the Purple Carrot box Read More

What I Eat In A Day

For those of you that know me, you know I eat mostly Paleo. I basically try to eat grain-free, with the occasional rice or gluten-free item from time to time. Sometimes I eat dairy, but I try not to go nuts.

Seeing what other people eat in a day fascinates me. So here goes!

Friday Fizz: My Favorite Paleo/Grain Free Foods

This blog is about connecting with you, finding things we have in common, and perhaps you can take away of piece of my life and incorporate it into yours. Whether it is fashion or wellness. I like to be helpful when I can.

If you’ve ended up here because you are a fashion-lover like me then you probably also want to FEEL good. And for me, that 100% comes down to what I’m eating. Okay maybe 90% (I know exercise is important, too.)

It’s not a secret that I eat mostly paleo/grain free for health reasons and feel my best when I do. I’m not 100% strict and I won’t die if I eat gluten or grains, but I just won’t feel too hot. So for all the grain-free fashionistas out there, here are some of the grain free things I’ve been picking up from the grocery store lately.

DC Restaurant Week at Floriana – Burgundy Midi Skirt

Restaurant week is a great opportunity to try a restaurant that might normally be out of your price range or a dish that you would not usually get. DC’s impressive list of participating restaurants was so intimidating! When my friend Vivi asked if I wanted in on a group dinner, I was relieved that she, a DC native, chose the restaurant instead of me.

She chose Floriana, an Italian spot in Dupont Circle. In true blogger fashion, we took some shots of my burgundy and white ensemble before dinner. Thank you Dani for taking these photos!

Friday Fizz: Delicious and Affordable Summer Wines

Wine is my go-to summer beverage. Not an ice cold beer (sorry Zac Brown Band and Brad Paisley and virtually every country music singer). Not a margarita, or a daiquiri. WINE!
