Hello everyone! You all probably recognize me (maybe) from my illustrative series with Dandy during the Holiday season. Now, I’m back and I’m here to blog about pretty much anything and everything. My first post is to celebrate the Summer Solstice aka the longest day of the year. What other way to celebrate that than to make some fun popsicles that scream “SUMMER?” [Read more…]
Recently I have connected with some amazing ladies to revitalize the Dandy Blog. I have always wanted to create a fun, enthusiastic, and creative space to talk about anything from baking to fashion to whatever seems to pop into our heads. Being stretched a little thin I thought about how we could do this and keep the posts fun with fresh content on a weekly basis. So I reached out to some talented friends of mine that have helped us in the past with everything from photography to collaborations, and illustrations. This new adventure is a great way to bring together like-minded creatives that have so much spunk, personality, and style. I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us! So without further adieu I would like you to meet the new members of the Dandy Blogging team!

Recently, we had a fun little photoshoot at my house! We we’re playing around with Halloween DIY costumes inspired by Dandy pieces (that blog will be up soon), when I thought the best way to get in the mood was to make the whole house smell like fall! So I went on Pinterest, of course, and found this great and insanely easy DIY to make the whole house smell like Autumn in a bottle! [Read more…]

It’s all the craze right? Like many, I jumped on that bandwagon. My boyfriend and I have been juicing on and off for about a year. [Read more…]
It has just been one of those kind of weeks, where everything seems to be headed in the wrong direction and nothing seems to go right. [Read more…]
Recently, me and my boyfriend have been trying to eat healthier. In my opinion, the best way to do that is by cooking meals at home with fresh, healthy ingredients. My sister told me about this great blog, Oh How She Glows. This woman has a very inspiring story, while giving you great healthy equivalents of fun favorites. While all of her recipes are vegan, I have tweaked mine a bit to include a bit of dairy. The first recipe I tried were these jumbo stuff shells. While she used tofu, I will admit I used ricotta cheese and egg to create part of my stuffing, but other than that I followed the recipe exactly! I also admit that my version is probably not has healthy has her recipe, but hey, baby steps people!
