Eating with Zest

February 22, 2016


Well, there’s no ignoring the fact that I have been gone for six months.


Truth be told I was waiting for some a stroke of inspiration to come  and inspire my blog to be its best self and it never did, so here I am at my computer pulling inspiration out of thin air.

Earlier this month, I decided to go see a nutritionist. The long and short of it is that I want to be thinner and I … Keep Reading

5 Facial Oils I’m dying to try!

August 6, 2015

Unless you’ve been locked in a basement somewhere lately, you’ll know that oils seem to be the new creams as far as skincare is concerned. I am no expert, but I do love trying new products! I’ve recently purchased a mini Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil and I have been trying it out for about the past week – I don’t feel like that’s enough time to rate a product so I’ll come back to that at the end of … Keep Reading

Coming Soon…

April 27, 2015

Over the past few months I have been thinking a lot about the things that I get really excited about – those things that I can tell I love because thinking about them makes me happy and sitting down to write a post about them won’t be daunting – and for me that is beauty! The products, the looks, the trends – all of it! So while my blog will still be a lifestyle blog of sorts, I would like … Keep Reading

Art Talk Tuesday

March 24, 2015

During my college years I developed a pretty sincere appreciation for art, mostly through art history courses and Spanish art and culture courses. When I went to Spain in 2012 I had this weird fascination with Goya’s black paintings, so I wanted to post some of them here and sort of talk about what makes them interesting to me!
