The cool weather is finally here and with schedules getting busier, I’ve been pulling out my crock pot more often. Paul and I have been prepping up 6-8 different crock pot recipes once a month and putting them in the freezer. I use this crock pot here.
It’s been great to have these on hand to whip a quick and healthy weeknight meal without all the prep and clean-up. Usually all I have to do is create a side dish like rice, steamed greens or salad and we have dinner and lots of leftovers for lunch the next day!
Here’s a round-up of 7 crock pot recipes to try this week. If you can, prep a bunch of these on a Sunday, throw them into freezer bags and you’re good to go! Continue reading →
We had a fun little family adventure to Sunriver Resort earlier this month! What was supposed to be a getaway for Paul and I, turned into BINGO tagging along because we couldn’t find anyone to take him on Labour Day weekend. Luckily, Sunriver Resort had dog-friendly rooms and I could add him to our reservation for $75 for our entire stay. Here’s what we got up to:Continue reading →
With the change in seasons, stress and sitting inside at my desk all day – my skin has begun to look a bit dull. I don’t know if it’s an age thing or maybe even a lifestyle thing, but I’ve finally decided to take charge of my skin. I do my best by keeping hydrated throughout the day, eating well and avoid alcohol during the week. But there are some days when my skin still looks dull.
Before I started using the product my skin was definitely looking tired, dull and I was prone to breakouts. I have combination skin with an oily T-zone and dry cheeks – so it’s tough find the right balance when it comes to good moisturizer.
What I like about this product is that it is loaded with antioxidants and Vitamin C + E, which work to even out skin tone and texture for brighter and smoother skin. I noticed a difference after just two weeks.
It’s a great way to keep that summer glow going and I like how it made my skin look fresh and bright. I am trying my best to wear sunscreen daily and having it built in to my moisturizer makes mornings a million times easier. It takes two beauty steps and combines them into one and I don’t have to think about whether I remembered to put sunscreen on in my morning haze.
The product claims it will give you brighter, smoother skin in just one week.*
What I like about it is that the formula is oil-free, doesn’t clog my pores and is light enough to wear under make-up.
It does not feel greasy at all and has a matte feel to it once it’s absorbed. The smell is also fresh, fruity and floral which instantly wakes me up in the morning. The product comes in an easy pump bottle that you twist to open and close with no cap to lose!
After about two weeks my skin looked fresher, brighter and healthier. Moisturizing on the regular and having that built in sun protection left my skin with a healthy natural glow.

What is it that I love about Portland? I love that it’s a city full of people like me who LOVE food and that’s what FEAST is all about. I was lucky to be granted a Media Pass this year and attended the Opening Night Party, The Sandwich Invitational and The Grand Tasting.
We bought an Airbnb about a month ago now and we’re starting to face all the expenses that comes with it. I said to Paul, the first 6 months are going to be the hardest – but once we get this thing off the ground, it’s going to be a ton of fun!
We’re now only about 2.5 months from construction being complete and being handed the keys to our new place in Olivia Beach on the Oregon Coast in Lincoln City.
