Emily’s Healthy Lemon Garlic Kale Salad

Hello Everyone! If you're anything like me, the meals we've all been eating recently haven't exactly looked like the photos in this post. Here's the real deal. We're all stressed. We're all stress eating. The hard part about stress eating is that it makes me feel great and satisfied immediately but it's not feeding my body. If I'm being honest, I end up feeling worse in the end. Anyone else? So I decided I'm going to give myself some grace. If I want Cheetos at night before bed... I'm going to do it. If I want a Heidiho with my morning coffee, I'm going to have it. But I am also going to make a concerted effort to drink my water... to eat balanced meals throughout the day... to take my vitamins... and to get plenty of greens. That is where this salad comes in.

The Best Home Fragrance

Thank you so much to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post. All opinions are our own.
We have always been fragrance people. And fragrances have always represented certain stages in our lives. I can't think of Emily in college without smelling her Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue, whereas I was a Tom Ford Black Orchid girl through and through. As we grew up, our tastes changed (I will never stop wearing Black Orchid, but I am open to wearing others now). When it comes to most things, our tastes are so different, with some similarities. Emily prefers light, airy and clean scents; whereas I am all about the dark, spicy, and masculine scents. So it may come as a surprise to you that every single scent featured in today's post is loved by both of us.

Self Care at Home

I know a lot of you, like us, have taken the precautionary measure and decided to stay at home for the foreseeable future. I thought I would share how I am keeping my stress and anxiety down (not easy at a time like this), and passing the time. A lot of these are already part of my regular routine, and a lot are things I don't usually "have time" for and so it feels like a treat. Read More
