TRADER JOE’S

This year for Christmas we went to visit my family in New Jersey and my cousin brought me to an amazing grocery store called Trader Joe’s for a little snack tasting. This place is known for its organic foods that are hard to come by. I wanted to try everything, but I settled for the following:  Here is what I think of what I tried: Crackers & Cheese – The crackers were really good, I would give them a 8 out of 10 & they’re really healthy. They contain prebiotic fiber to help support the digestive track. As for the cheese, I give…

SNAKE SKIN

I think I have already mentioned how much I love prints, but I think I’ll just repeat myself once more! I am just so happy that prints are big this fall/winter, b/c I cannot get enough of them. I like this outfit b/c it’s warm when paired with stockings. When it’s really cold, I usually pair them with thicker tights & boots. This can easily be worn over the holidays to a dinner party. The red lips add an extra punch of color & fit into the Christmas atmosphere. Have fun with prints girls!

STAY FIT DURING THE HOLIDAYS

  The holiday season is amongst us! I don’t know about you, but I haven’t been to the gym in over a week. Between Christmas shopping, dinner parties & family gatherings, the gym simply became last on my priorities list. However, I decided that I still needed to do something to stay fit. Above are things I am trying to do on a regular basis at home to get some exercise when it’s crunch time. If you have a wii, doing a just dance video or using the wii fit are fun ways of getting a little exercise, while entertaining yourself in…

JEWELRY ORGANIZATION

I am a jewelry fanatic, there I said it! Yes, I am absolutely, positively obsessed with bracelets, necklaces, rings & earrings! They don’t need to be very expensive, just pretty! However, I’ve always found them hard to organize. I had many small jewelry boxes, and I could never find anything in all that mess. My necklaces would all get tangled up & it took hours to get them untangled. Finally, my mom bought me a huge jewelry chest for Christmas a few years ago and I cannot imagine my life without it, no joke (lol). It has various compartments designed for specific jewelry pieces & everything is very well…

PIEROGI

  I’m polish & it’s tradition to have pierogi for Christmas, so I need to get on the bandwagon and make some of these from scratch! They’re basically dumplings filled with your favorite stuffing: potato and cheese (featured in this recipe), meat, mushrooms, etc. My favorite is potato & cheese & that’s why I decided to share this recipe with you guys. The only ingredient I will not be using is the recommended processed cheese sauce. Also, Poles often use ricotta cheese instead of cheddar cheese, so I will most likely be substituting that as well. It’s delicious and ricotta cheese has tons of protein!…
