Launching Bumble Bizz at Olive & Ivy

Launching Bumble Bizz at Olive & Ivy

Hey guys!  I’m excited to announce that Bumble has done it again and they are releasing a new part of their app called Bumble Bizz. Bumble Bizz specializes in allowing users to make business connections. I think this is so cool, especially because Bizz is staying true to Bumble’s roots. Just like the dating service Bumble offers, women make the first move. Bumble is continuing to put women in the power seat.

Favorite Luggage | Featuring Away Travel

As you guys probably already know, I am ALWAYS traveling. I love getting to see places
and experience new things, but I also love having all my essentials with me so I can feel at
home even when I’m away. Thankfully, I recently found a luggage company who values these
things as well! Away Luggage believes that your suitcase should act as your home away from
home.

Trending Tops | NYFW 2017

Saving the best for last, let’s talk tops! Tops are definitely one of my favorite pieces to shop for. You can never have too many tops in your closet because they come in so many different styles, and I love having options. I saw a huge variety of tops when I was at NYFW, some I was already wearing and some that I couldn’t wait to get my hands on.

Outerwear Trends | NYFW 2017

I don’t know about you guys, but I am SO excited for sweater weather. I love getting cozy in cute winter clothes and cuddling with a blanket and some hot tea. Fall is totally upon us so I am doing a little outfit prepping. Luckily, while I was at New York Fashion Week last month I got a ton of cold weather outfit inspo. This year’s outerwear trends are all about being cute and cozy and I’m here for it. Some of my favorite chilly weather trends that I saw at NYFW were oversized sweaters, destroyed sweaters, the classic trench coat, faux fur jackets, and of course, black leather jackets.

Accessory Trends | NYFW 2017

Accessory Trends | NYFW 2017

A constant trend at NYFW this year was definitely on point accessorizing. I'm so obsessed with all of the cute head wear, sunglasses, and jewelry that I saw at Fashion Week. My fave accessory that I spotted in New York was the cutest oversized sun hat in black from Christian Siriano. I love it so much because it goes with literally any outfit. It can be matched with a super casual outfit on a sunny day, or can go with a nicer outfit in the evening to add some dramatic flare. Either way, I'm in love, so I will definitely be linking that hat down below in my list.

Girls Staycay | Featuring Bumble x Hotel Valley Ho

Girls Staycay | Featuring Bumble x Hotel Valley Ho

My Bumble girls and I recently had the opportunity to have a weekend staycay at Hotel Valley Ho and it was the BEST. I love that Bumble brings us together for super fun events like this one. My favorite thing about BumbleBFF is how much emphasis they put on harvesting friendships. It’s hard to find time in my busy schedule to really give each of my friendships the attention and quality time that they deserve, but BumbleBFF has really helped me with this! I really do love getting to spend quality time with my friends at our events, and our Bumble x Hotel Valley Ho staycay was definitely one for the books.

I recently partnered with BumbleBFF and Hotel Valley Ho to host a girls staycation in Scottsdale, Arizona.  As a part of the staycation Hotel Valley Ho hosted us for a dinner and brunch over the course of our stay at their restaurant, ZuZu. Which offers a modern twist on classic fare. The restaurant had such a nice ambiance that features live music on Friday and Saturday evenings that gave all the good vibes throughout the night.

Egg Breakfast Wraps | Recipe

Egg Breakfast Wraps | Recipe

These breakfast wraps are the best! I love them because they trick my mind into thinking I’m eating bread based wrap when in reality, the wrap is made entirely out of egg! These wraps are also super versatile. I always stuff them with my faves: tomatoes, avocado and spinach. However, you can totally be more adventurous and add ingredients such as sauted veggies, protein, cheese or anything else you want in there because pretty much EVERYTHING tastes good with eggs.

Lemon Nail Soak | DIY

Lemon Nail Soak | DIY

I love a good manicure, the only downside is routine manicures can typically dehydrate and thin
your nails over time. That’s why I always soak my nails between manicures in this super
moisturizing DIY nail soak. This is such an easy and quick beauty DIY, and everything you need
to make the soak is a typical household item. This soak is super moisturizing and strengthening
because each ingredient (only 4 total!) has major benefits.

Yogurt Dipped Blueberries | Recipe

I love fruit dipped in greek yogurt! In case you missed my last fruit + greek yogurt post, I recently
dipped kiwi slices in greek yogurt and froze them. I was pretty much in heaven! It’s crazy how it
tastes like SUCH a treat, when in reality it’s simply fruit and greek yogurt! Two totally healthy
and good-for- you ingredients. I’m so obsessed.

Healing Hair Mask | DIY

Healing Hair Mask | DIY

I'm sure this is is no surprise, but I love having super soft hair. It drives me crazy when my hair starts to feel dry or break off when I brush it. The minute I see any breakage, I know it's time to pull out my fool proof DIY hair mask. I am so obsessed with this hair mask because it's made with totally natural ingredients. Obviously a store bought hair mask may seem like the easier option, but those masks are filled with chemicals to preserve the ingredients inside. So even if you find an avocado based hair mask at the store, only a small percentage of what your putting on your hair is truly avocado! It's way better to skip the middle man and just make the mask yourself. This way your locks only get the best of the best. Plus, it's so easy you guys!

Easy & Crispy Cauliflower Pizza

Easy & Crispy Cauliflower Pizza

There is nothing quite like a homemade pizza! In fact, it's one of my favorite things. I've really been into replacing bread and potatoes with cauliflower lately and now I prefer the taste. This recipe is super simple and will save you some calories and carbohydrates. It also has a lot of nutritional benefits that a traditional bread crust does not.

Wholesome Chocolate Chip Cookies | Recipe

Wholesome Chocolate Chip Cookies | Recipe

Okay guys, here’s a secret, I love a good chocolate chip cookie! I like them soft and gooey and
filled with lots and lots of chocolate chips. However, I’m trying so hard to be good and eat only
wholesome ingredients. Well, guess what? These cookies are made with only the more
wholesome and natural ingredients. They may not be exactly low calorie or low sugar, but I feel
good about each ingredient that I have put into them. Not to mention, these cookies are so
yummy.

Easy Meal Prep Stir-Fry

Easy Meal Prep Stir-Fry

After my juice cleanse last week I was craving something hearty but I didn't want to sabotage all my hard work with a sodium-filled dish out. I had some visitors and was inspired by a friend who mentioned her meal prep. I knew exactly what I wanted at that point and put this dish together and ate it for three days.
