Eating Out with Food Allergies: The Basics

I’m a total foodie. Yes, I do adore cooking, but I loooooove to eat out. Always have, always will. I keep a running list of at least 100 restaurants on my phone that I’m plotting to test out next. New suggestions are always welcome. A lot of people are surprised by how much I like to eat out at restaurants. When it comes up, the response is usually, “Can you even eat there?” or, “How can you eat out so often with all of your food restrictions?” Well, my friends, it’s really not as hard as it seems. There was definitely an…

The iPhone Addiction

I spend WAY too much time on my phone. NOT EVEN TALKING TO ANYONE. And it’s irritating the crap out of me. Let me backtrack and explain how this all started. A few weeks ago I was having one of those days (I was a total emotional mess), so I started swatching eyeshadows on the back of my hand to make myself feel better (yes, I’m serious). My hands got super dirty, so I went into the bathroom to wash them and casually tossed my phone onto the bathroom counter. Then time warped to snail speed as I watched my beautiful…

When The Real Housewives Actually Get Real: Eating Disorders

Something totally crazy has been happening this past year in the TV world. The storylines on Bravo’s Real Housewives have actually been addressing REAL issues. It’s been very refreshing. And very interesting. I’m a total Housewives addict – Beverly Hills, Orange County, New Jersey, NYC, and now Dallas. My favorite parts of the week are kickin’ back with a cup of tea and bingeing on Housewives. I don’t care how many times I’ve seen an episode – the drama does NOT get old. But that’s what it’s always been – just drama. A fun escape from real life, and usually laughable because it’s so…

The Disneyland Series: DLAND 101

Disneyland is my place. My favorite place. I’m kind of obsessed with it, and I’ve been obsessed for as long as I can remember. I’ve wanted to write a post about Disneyland for a long time, but I get overwhelmed with all of the things I want to say. So I’ve decided I’ll probably turn this into a little series and break up the information. Since I love traditions and I’m definitely a creature of habit, I have a certain method of “doing” Disneyland, and it’s what I do every time. There are steps. A strict regimen. My way is not…

How to Eat Healthy in the Dorms

I caught an article the other day about how to eat healthy as a college student, and some of the recommendations the author suggested were somewhat unrealistic or just not actually even healthy. Sooo I decided I definitely needed to write a post about it because I had major struggles with the eating situation when I was in the dorms, but I did figure out how to survive. I started having major health problems during my last quarter living in my dorm room and was put on a restricted diet during that time, which made it even more difficult to find things to…
