Beer Blog: Two Ton Brewing

After a long winter of sicknesses and snow, Andy and I decided we needed a date day. Ever since they opened last October, we’ve been wanting to check out Two Ton Brewing. Located in Kenilworth, the brewery is owned by a fellow alumnus of Montclair State, Matt Barbiere (see page 54!). We first met Matt…

A few of my favorite things.

Today was a rare, elusive snow day, so I got to spend some time doing stuff around the apartment including mulling some spices and making Weight Watchers desserts. Ya know, the usual stuff. I also got around to writing this little ditty about a few things that are part of my routine lately. Some of…

A Lazy girl’s guide to cooking

I love to cook and bake. I love having control over something, obviously. It’s therapeutic and relaxing. While I love finding and following recipes, my favorite thing to do is make things up based on what ingredients we have in the pantry and trying new things. Below are some recipes for meals or treats that…

Be merry.

The title of this post should have been “Be thankful”, but I took too long to write it because I am the worst blogger ever. Since it’s a bit too far gone from Thanksgiving, it just had to wait until after Christmas. The idea was for it to all stem from my last post before…

Be anxious

Well, it’s been far too long since I’ve written here, but I’ve thought about it every damn day for the busy month of October and thus far into November. But why dwell in the past, because here I am! I’ve always been forthcoming and transparent when it comes to my anxiety, and one of the…

Happy Fall Y’all

Fellow basic bitches (and bros), we’ve made it! Autumn is here, and I am so ready for it.  With the change of the seasons can come some sniffles, but it does not have to be a total buzzkill or stop you from enjoying Fall festivities! Did you know that Fall allergies can be just as…

Bridal Beauty – SOS Edition!

Over the weekend, we celebrated our engagement party with an I Do BBQ. It was a ton of fun, getting to celebrate with our friends and family. As you can see from the photo above, we had a really fabulous time. Of course, a few days before the party, my skin started to break the…

Sweating for the Wedding

This blog has been really helpful for me to track and share my weight loss and fitness journey. This is an area of my life that I’ve struggled with since high school, and I’ve learned that it’s important to have an outlet to talk about it, and a way to hold yourself accountable.  I’ve been…

My Beauty Routine: Bride on a Budget

I work hard to have good skin, but for the most part, it’s come easily to me. Maybe it’s genes, but if I treat my skin and my body right, my skin shows it. I’ve also been taking care of my skin for a long time, for almost as long as I can remember. I…

Wine and Beer!

Everyone knows that I love beer. In fact, you might say that I am a bit of a snob about it. But, here’s something… I also love wine! But I am definitely not a wine snob. Two Buck Chuck from Trader Joe’s? Sure thing! Let’s face it, I spent my college years (and several of…
