So here are 4 things that you should totally do if you want to be healthy, happy and beautiful from within. Raising Healthy Kids Raising Healthy Kids: Food There’s a company called Momables that have these meal plans that are perfect for any…

  Creating the perfect treats for a party or sleepover doesn’t necessarily mean you have to spend a whole day in the kitchen. You just have to use your imagination, (and your taste buds!) to come up with the most festive, colorful, and delicious treats for your friends. Froot Loop Milkshake So besides getting your house ready, picking out your favorite outfit, and finding a few fun games to play with your besties, (like Heads Up and Reverse Charades!) you’ve got to make sure to pick up a few goodies. In my book, the number one rule of cooking or baking is Froot Loop Milkshake “don’t be afraid to mix it up, there are no mistakes.” Because seriously, how can mixing whipped cream, cereal and sprinkles be a mistake? Imagine what could happen when you blend Froot Loops Cereal, milk, and Ben & Jerry’s Cake Batter ice cream? Hello? Complete and total…

Can you believe tomorrow is the last day of summer? I’m super sad about it because it means no more swimming, it gets darker sooner and I don’t get to travel as much since I’m back in school (Boo). One the good side, I can finally wear my favorite pair of Ugg boots, test out a ton of new fall baking recipes and, we’re closer to Halloween and Christmas. Summer Pineapple Flamingo Cupcakes cakes I wanted to celebrate this day by sharing these yummy cupcakes I made earlier this summer using my favorite sprinkles (how super cute are these pineapple and flamingos)? I found these on a trip to Michales. This was earlier during the summer so if you can’t find them in stores be sure to check online or even Etsy. Pineapple Flamingo Cupcakes My mom’s birthday is in August and she loves pink and pineapples so I wanted to make…
