What Celebrity Look Do You Have? {Infographic}

26 Apr

I’ve worn glasses since I was 8. I know, right? Ok, now that we are over that and are hopefully no longer imagining 4-eyed, 8-year old Amanda, it’s time to talk about glasses. I’m currently in the market for a new pair, and when a rep from PeeperSpecs  reached out to share this infographic, I knew […]

Unplugging over the weekend and finding a balance that works for you

25 Apr


This weekend I had a chance to think. Well, more like I was forced to think because we’d had such a busy weekend that I hadn’t once gotten on my blog, written, checked my readership, Tweeted or anything! It was insane, but I didn’t even notice the insanity until Sunday evening when all was said […]

Local Find: Sugar Shack

18 Apr

Many a time we have driven right past a place called Sugar Shack in Brookhaven. With such an enticing name and my sweet tooth yearning to find out what was inside the Shack, it’s a wonder we didn’t “happen in” sooner! But, one day, a co-worker of Mr. R’s recommended we stop in, so he […]

Sweet Treat Recipe: Banana Biscoff Milkshakes

16 Apr

Oh. Em. Gee. We made the most delish dessert the other day, and I just had to shout it from the rooftops (of my blog, of course!) So, for those of you who know Mr. R, you’ve probably heard him go on and on about Biscoff cookie spread. Haven’t heard of it? It’s heaven in […]

Happy Spring!

Happy Monday and Happy SPRING to you all! Just a quick post for inspiration. All of these things… these are what Spring means to me. Spring means color, fun, a certain lightness in the air.
