Creamy Pasta with Asparagus + Smoked Salmon

Creamy Pasta with Asparagus + Smoked Salmon

A little over a week ago I made this BH&G recipe and have been dreaming of it ever since. It’s quick, easy, and delicious. What’s not to love?! I have a feeling this will be on rotation at our house now. Definitely a fan favorite!

If you’re not into seafood just switch out the salmon for chicken or go completely meatless and add more veggies. You can even get crazy and throw in some parmesan…the options are endless! The sauce packs a ton of flavor so I’m confident this dish will be good either way. I modified the measurements slightly to make it a bit saucier and added garlic to make it even more flavorful. Because garlic is life…amIright?

Neon Wish List + How I’m Wearing the Trend

Neon Wish List + How I’m Wearing the Trend

It’s no secret neon everything is trending this summer. While I typically stick to more neutral pieces, it’s been fun to add some brightness into my wardrobe. I love that the bold colors instantly make me look more tan…plus, it’s hard not to feel a little extra cheerful when wearing them!

One of my favorite neon pieces in my closet is the bright orange maxi skirt featured below. I’ve worn it recently a couple different ways: 1.) with a black one piece swimsuit as cover-up at the beach and 2.) with a simple cropped tee while exploring an adorable northern Michigan lake town with some good friends of ours. I felt comfortable + confident each time I wore it and have a feeling I’ll be reaching for it quite often over the next few months!

Memorial Day Sale Wish List

Memorial Day Sale Wish List

I hope everyone has had a safe and fun holiday weekend so far! Ours has been filled spending time with family and friends, taking our dogs to local parks and several pet-friendly patios, and creating lots of memories at the IMS during Carb Day and the Indy 500. May in Indianapolis is the best! We’ve had so much fun, but a little recovery time is in order. Today we’re going to hang around the house and hopefully get our outdoor space ready for summer. Just a few things left and we’ll be all set!

With so many sales going on today, I wanted to share what I have my eye on…

Everyday Makeup

Everyday Makeup

Spring always seems like the perfect time to freshen things up! Whether it’s our homes, wardrobes, gardens, or beauty routines it’s nice to make changes + improvements that just make us feel better. I recently went through all my makeup + skin care products and tossed things I wasn’t using (or were expired) and organized everything else. I’ve been loving how everything looks and how easily accessible my products are.

Going through the process really made me evaluate my morning routine and how much time I was wasting simply digging through my ridiculous inventory. I came to grips with the fact there was no need to keep so much around because I have my go-to makeup products and don’t stray. My skin is fairly sensitive so for years it was really tough + frustrating to find products that gave me the coverage I wanted, but didn’t negatively impact my skin. I’m happy to say I now have a ten minute makeup routine that gives me confidence in the way I look, but is gentle on my skin. Not to sound too dramatic here, but it’s seriously taken so much stress from my life. Today I’m sharing my lineup and how I use each product.

A Twist on the Classic Oxford

A Twist on the Classic Oxford

I’m so happy spring is finally in the air! We’ve spent a lot of time outside the past few days and it’s really put some pep in my step! It’s kind of incredible to think of the affect the weather has on my mood, motivation, eating habits and willingness to leave my house. When it’s cold out I come home and immediately change into sweats, and it takes some serious persuasion to get me to leave. So, the sunshine and higher temps we’ve had in the Midwest recently have basically transformed me into a whole new woman! I’ve enjoyed getting ready and going out, even if it’s just to the grocery store. New season, new me. My sandals, warm weather tops, and light jackets have come out of hiding and I’ve added a few pieces to my closet for spring, too. I’ve gravitated toward a lot of neutrals when shopping so I can mix and match everything into summer.
