How to Look Cute While You Sweat Your Buns Off

It’s hot AF. So I’ve been opting for flowy, breezy outfits as of late. It’s my hopeless attempt to not be completely uncomfortable during my commute, because for the most part I’m freezing my balls off at work and melting my buns off on my to work. But alas it’s a losing battle. I suppose dueling temps are the working girls eternal struggle. Anywho, here is what I wore.

Infused Workshop Recap @ Nomad Yard Collectiv

PHOTOS BY JUSNA NINAH

Infused was such a blast and I had such a great time sharing my tips and tricks. Infused spirits are one of my go-to party tricks while entertaining. My philosophy for homemaking is that it should be simple but well done. As you will see from the recipes, you can pull together a great cocktail with minimal effort and ingredients that are easy to find. The possibilities are endless, but my two favorite flavors are ginger gin and hibiscus gin. During the workshop I shared my tips for beginner infusers, we made the hibiscus and ginger gin and then cocktails! Everyone had such great questions, which I captured below in the tips section.

How to Naturally Whiten Your Teeth

Having good teeth was always something that my mother stressed when we were young. It’s one of those things that she did not have until she was an adult and as kids she wanted us to have. I refused braces, because I didn’t think I needed them, but white teeth?! Sign me up. Back in the day we simply used to dunk our tooth brushes into a box of baking soda and call it a day. Now there are so many options, but with my sensitive gums I keep going back to old faithful. In addition to baking soda I’ve added activated charcoal to the mix. If you want, you can use them separately but I’ve found that the mix works wonders on my teeth and is a bit less harsh than using baking soda alone.

Grilled Summer Salad

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Most salads are pretty lame. Lettuce, cucumber, tomato, blah, blah…😴. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind a simple salad but Summer is the perfect time to spice them up with grilled veggies. Grilling makes everything better. If you don’t have an outside grill, get yourself a cast iron stovetop grill pan for similar results! You can also roast the veggies.

How to Make Onion Jam – The Condiment You Never Knew You Needed

 

“Does that say onion and oxtail marmalade?!!!” Yes bitch. Onion and oxtail marmalade!

This gem is on the dinner menu at Mulebone. Not alone of course, but on the Mulebone burger. The only thing that I love more than sweet, is sweet and savory together. That day at Mulebone we also ordered the smoked beet salad. Smokey, sweet, salty, crunchy, smooth…all in play with this meal. While I wish the salad had more candied nuts (I have a thing about having a bit of everything in each bite), both were spectacular. You need to try this. Why? Because it makes everything better! My favorite way to eat it so far is on my now next level avocado toast. So damn good.

It happens to all of us. You wake up and you feel like 💩. I used to roll my eyes when I saw all the self help memes about happiness being a choice… like stfu. But I truly believe that it is barring extraneous circumstances. There are times when you need to be present in your whatever it is that you are feeling.
