EMILY MAKES LUNCH

I was thinking of things that I am interested in and things that I could also do on this blog/maybe my YouTube channel.  I realized that I really enjoying cooking and baking and was interested in trying to incorporate that into easy recipes for the everyday cook in all of us.  So, I decided to make…

PINE TREE APPLE ORCHARD

This past weekend I saw on Facebook that the Pine Tree Apple Orchard was finally open for business for the Autumn season.  This made me most excited because I love everything about the apple orchard: the treats, the scent of the autumn season, and, of course, the apples.


These apple turnovers and …

FIRST IMPRESSIONS | CERAVE SKIN RENEWING NIGHT CREAM

Recently, I was perusing through the makeup/skin care isles at Target (as you do), and remembered that I needed to pick up a new face night cream.  I had previously been using the Aveeno night cream, and liked it, but was in the mood to try something new.  You know how that is!  Looking through all…

TV SHOWS I'VE COMPLETELY WATCHED

I love movies and I love TV shows.  I probably spend way too much time out of my life watching movies/tv shows/youtube videos etc.  However, it takes a special show to keep my attention throughout the entirety of its seasons.  Hey, I get bored, what can I say?!

So here are some TV shows that I hav…

WHAT A WEIRD WEEK

To put it simply, this week has been weird.  Weird for a lot of different reasons.  Let me start at the beginning.  Monday of this past week.  We were headed to the Mall of America at about 10 am.  Driving the car about 3 minutes away from home, when my dad pulls over saying that the car is not go…

SOME SH*T ABOUT LIFE YOU SHOULD KNOW

Every day we get older and once you graduate high school, you are expected to "know" how to be an adult.  Sometimes it's difficult and you will definitely not know how to do most things.  Today, I thought I would share some useful and underrated advice about some shit you should know …

BATH AND BODY WORKS | AUTUMN CANDLES

It's beginning to be that time of year again: AUTUMN.  One of my favorite times of year!  And this also means that Bath and Body Works starts rolling out all of their autumn products.  It was also their Get 2 for $24 deal, so double score for me!  I got a bit excited when I saw them in the stor…

MAKEUP WISHLIST

A couple months back, I made a blog post about my skin care wish list and I decided to make a similar one but this time for makeup, because who doesn't love makeup?! Especially me!  I decided to pick something from each category that I would like, so here we go!

TAMARACK NATURE CENTER

My dad and I decided to go the Tamarack Nature Center for a little hike.  I used to go to here a ton when I was younger (they have a lot of kids programs, especially in the summer), but haven't been there in a couple of years.  It was just as nice and peaceful as I remember.






It's crazy how …

CHOCOLATE CHIP BANANA BREAD

I was in the baking mood (again!) and had some too-ripe bananas, so what's something I could make?? Banana bread of course!  I decided to add chocolate chips because, well, I'm feeling pretty crazy.

I got this recipe from Food Network, the recipe which you can find here.  (EDIT: I believe …

CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

So I was in the mood to do some baking and decided to make the classic chocolate chip cookie.  You can never go wrong with a chocolate chip cookie.


I ended up following the recipe from Betty Crocker which you can read here, but I will put the recipe on here as well for easy access.
(EDIT: the recip…

FUN AT THE PARK

On our daily walk, we decided to go a different direction and walk to the nearby elementary school.  Once there we decided to go on the swings.  I opted out for the swings because I don't know what it is but swings/the swinging motion makes me feel ill.  So instead I watched my dad and sister …
