DC Eats & A Naturebox Review


What a weekend! I spent most of it in DC, visiting friends, eating amazing food, and seeing Tiesto. You know. Typical. Tiesto was amazing, and I loved trying so many new restaurants in the city. One of my favorite dishes was the dolsot … [Continue reading]

Calorie Tracking


If you've ever tried to lose weight (or even just stay on track) you've probably considered food journaling. I'm actually a huge fan of it, because it can be really interesting to see the big picture of what you're eating. You might not realize that … [Continue reading]
