  • I have been doing the keto diet since January 1st and am really loving it. My only concerns have been about gut health (and especially getting enough fiber). Working on a keto diet update post soon!
  • Way to go Chiefs! Loved watching former Texas Tech Red Raider and current Chiefs Quarterback Pat Mahomes in the big game!
  • I found these shoes on Amazon (thanks to this fashion blog that I love) and they are the perfect mix of cute and comfy….still on the hunt for some booties, though.
  • These yoga pants cannot be beat for the price. I even do actual yoga in them sometimes!
  • Love this list of books written with African American authors in honor of #blackhistorymonth. I have heard good things about Notes from a Young Black Chef and hope to get to it soon.
  • Do you know about spoon theory? This article was so enlightening to me!
  • Olive oil is one of my favorite fats to cook with, and I always love learning more about how to choose the best one.
  • This is a great list of romance books to read this Valentines if that is your thing.
  • Speaking of V-Day, the romance genre is REALLY not my fave. SO, I have enlisted a romance book expert (Sarah from Really Into This) to help me with an on-theme list of books for Valentines Day. Look for it on the blog next week!
