Shakshuka

Do you ever Pin a recipe just because it looks pretty? This was certainly the case with this shakshuka recipe I stumbled upon this Spring. Then it made it onto my 92 Days of Summer list because of the colors it would add to my Instagram feed. Don't judge me. I was fortunate enough to [...]

Three Ships Coffee

I took myself on a Saturday morning date to Three Ships Coffee down in the ViBe Creative District. I had the pleasure to meet the two behind this tasty shop back at Better Block in 2013, when they were operating out of a remodeled trailer. As the line stretched out the door and people filled every [...]

VB Flea

I find I rarely use Facebook anymore, with the exception of finding events nearby. Hence how I stumbled upon the VB Flea. I've always been a fan of flea markets and while this one was small, it was mighty in the offerings. Not to mention, it piggybacks on the Old Beach Farmer's Market and sits [...]

Old Beach Farmer’s Market

It's been years since I've been to the Old Beach Farmer's Market in Virginia Beach. And what a change! The produce was all so gorgeous and perfect looking. I was also happy to see such a variety, from salsa and ceviche, flowers and dog treats and so many varieties of tomatoes, eggplants and peppers! They've [...]

Almond Joy Bars

So I was a little skeptical after tasting the "almond candy" portion of the bar. But the whole thing together? YUM. I think these taste great as a frozen treat, so I keep mine in the freezer. You can also keep them in the fridge or at room temperature. Your choice! What you'll need: 1 [...]

July Goals

The first six months of 2017 have absolutely flown by. So much so, that I find it a little troubling. How can I let so much time slip by and have nothing to show for it, yet still feel so mentally drained? Before our vacation I felt so overwhelmed. I was working 12 hour days, [...]

June Goals

Me trying snorkeling (with my mom), in the ocean, in a two-piece. Normally a total no for me. Even though the first part of June is done and gone - and I've already dealt with some pretty tremendous events so far - I'm looking forward to accomplishing my goals this second half. My best friend [...]

How do custom orders work?

It's hard for most people to understand flowers in terms of felt. I like to think that the possibilities are endless with felt flowers. You can mimic the shape of real flowers, or create your own. Design a wonderfully wild and whimsical bouquet or create a classic, perfectly symmetrical bunch of flowers. I recently had [...]
