• Ombré-less Hair Color Ideas

    ombre over

    Do ombrés really have more fun? Have we reached peak-ombré? These are the important questions we must be asking ourselves at a time like this. Ombré is everywhere right now – and I’ll admit that I (proudly) rocked my ombré-do for a long time. It still looks great, and it’s an obvious choice for summer. 

    …but lately I’ve been craving the rich, deep tones of more natural hair colors – a creamy honey or smooth dark chocolate tone is too delicious to ignore. So, if you are like me, and feeling like you want a new dye-job, but want to go sans-trend, bring one of these ombré-less inspiration photos to your stylist and get back to your (or someone else’s) roots. 




  • 5 Interior Design Tips for Your Tiny Space in the Big City


    Not everyone can live in an open, modern space – especially if you live in a big city. My apartment is just under 600 square feet – with a giant, awkward wall that blocks the entire kitchen from the living room. When space and floor plan are lacking, you have to use creativity to make the most of your home. And recently I did just that: I set a [small] budget, did a lot of Pinterest-inspiration searching, and I rearranged my living, dining and kitchen areas. The result? More space for living, less clutter and a modern look. 

    Thinking creatively about your space requires you to let go of the way you currently have things laid out and to start completely fresh. To begin thinking about your floor plan differently, here are some interior design tips for smaller living spaces: 

    1. Walls don’t have to define the space

    Think outside the wall – the back of your couch doesn’t have to be pressed against it! Try pulling furniture away from the wall – and even using couches and chairs to separate one room into two spaces (like a living and dining area).

    Paleo, grain-free, clean eating cauliflower "biscuits" with sweet onion gravy

    I’m really excited to share this recipe with you all – as my love (read: obsession) for delicious meals secretly made from cauliflower continues. Is there anything you can’t make with cauliflower? If there is, I don’t really want to make it. Last week I shared my recipe for the perfect Cauliflower Alfredo sauce – and everyone seemed to absolutely love it. So why change what works? Another cauliflower recipe has arrived. In fact, I’m now changing my blog’s name to “The Chic Cauliflower.”  Read More
