Finding the chic in everyday life

I love eating, cooking, crafting, zumbaing, ice skating, and lots of other randomness.

First generation organic.

Since December 2008, I've lost 15 lbs and I hope to continue my healthy habits of nutritious eating + frequent, fun exercising.

Sadly I go for someting I can pop in the microwave or cereal.


I am soo glad you are finally getting to take photography classes, that is just awesome! I am so jealous!!! Please post some tripod tips because I'd like to get one that's reasonable, but there are so many to choose from I can't decide. I always have yogurt, cereal and fruit for dinner if I don't feel like making anything :) you are doing such a great job eating in without a kitchen, you rock!

Nicole @ Geek Turned Athlete

I usually make a lot more food than we need, and freeze it (soups, any kind of pasta sauce, homemade healthy chicken pot pies, etc.). Then, on nights that we don't feel like cooking, I pop it in the oven and chill. I would much rather have my own homemade frozen meals than store bought stuff.


Hey, girl!
Such amazing photos!
This photo classes must be awesome!
Oh, and it´s so amazing how you managed to keep the "Eat In A Month" challenge without using your sink/kitchen!
But your dinner looked delicious.
I´m dying to try Barney Butter´s Almond Butter!
Oh, and by the way, I love your blog ;)
Brazilian kisses,


What awesome photos!

Diana @ The Chic Life

I hear ya! Sometimes I make extra soup so I have leftovers I can freeze!

I get delivery ;) (we have an Indian place locally that makes dishes jam packed with fresh veggies). Or I make a raw soup, as it's so easy to clean the Vitamix (something you could do in the bathroom whilst you brew your coffee, perhaps?!)

Lauren @ Eater not a runner

LOVE your pictures!


It's an appy but so yummy you can eat enough for an entire meal:

**Chili Cheese Spread**
- Spread 1 package cream cheese in bottom of microwavable dish.
- Pour 1 can of Stagg Chili over top.
- Sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese.
- Microwave for 3 minutes and serve with tortilla chips for dipping.

Love the cool shots of the night lights. Nicely done.


Your pictures are absolutely gorgeous today!


Here's my list:

I throw together a salad with a can of tuna, tomatoes, Craisins, seeds, etc.

Canned soup

Frozen meal in a bag that comes with all ingredients inside and cooks up in 10 minutes on the stove (I forgot the name) but it has for example: beef, (or shrimp) broccoli and vegetables. You stir fry it for 8 minutes and it's done. Run the frozen sauce under hot water and toss that in the pan and you eat in under 15 minutes. LOL

I try to keep one of these on hand for a hectic night.

And, if we are really hectic and get home late: a big bowl of cereal with fruit or take-out.

I am loving your blog! So cute! It reminds me of, but in a blog.

Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat)

PB and J is such an easy meal for me to make on days when I don't feel like cooking or going out.

The pictures are awesome. I am really wanting a DSLR soon!

Ash @ Good Taste. Healthy Me
