I’m deeming this ‘the summer of getting myself right’. Not really in an I’m-going-to-be-perfect sense, but more like in a ‘you’re-turning-30-so-figure-it-out’ kind of way. I’m at a point when I feel like I finally have my workout routine down (yoga always and forever), I started wearing sunscreen every day (my grandma is going to give me heck for not doing it sooner), and have started enjoying a ‘fun drink’ everyafternoon. My ‘fun drink’ is usually a sparkling water blended with fruit or matcha latte to get me through the last bit of workday, blending it up around my usual 2 pm slump and powering all the way through to the end of my workday.

I can’t actually remember how I first found Lily and her blog, most likely it was from going down an Instagram rabbit hole (more…)
It’s been pretty drink heavy around here lately, between my favorite matcha drink and a green smoothie packed to the brim with veggies, it just feels a little more fun to have a few extra drink recipes up my sleeve. Now that the weather is getting (relatively) nicer, I’m planning all the patio happy hours and outdoor porch (more…)
An easy and quick blender almond milk matcha latte, made in under 5 minutes and perfect for spring! Naturally sweetened with agave nectar.
Back in action! Last week was kind of an unintentional blog break, between life, having too much fun during the previous weekend (i.e. I’m too old to stay up super late anymore) and the overall rain that had me feeling just blah, I’m happy to be back on the blog today sharing my favorite iced almond milk matcha latte recipe.
