My 3 Favorite Coffee Drinks to Order at Starbucks

Alright guys, here's the deal. I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and worked as a barista for 3 years. Because of this, I've had some pretty amazing coffee in my life, and I think I have a fairly good understanding of what makes coffee "good." Some may say this makes me a "coffee snob," which I'm OK with...as long as people don't jump to the assumption that I'm "too good" for Starbucks. 'Cause I'm not. Today I'm sharing my 3 favorite drinks to order from them.

Don't Eat Like Your Friends

Don't Eat Like Your Friends

Where would we be without our pals? They’re there for us through all of life’s events: celebrations, losses, graduations, promotions, breakups, marriages, babies, adventures, and more. They’re a shoulder to cry on, a word of encouragement, and they help us live our lives to the fullest. Although you may share similar interests, and even share closets, does this mean you need to share other things, too? How about sharing the same eating habits?

My #1 Tip for Feeling Confident in Any Social Situation

Alright guys, let's get real. Does the idea of going to a social event ever make you feel anxious? I'll be honest and admit that it's something I have struggled with, and I don't think I'm alone. Not in the slightest.

While the whole extrovert/introvert thing is often to blame, I think there is another BIG reason that explains why we may feel a little nervous walking into a room full of people- even those we may be close with.

11 Date Ideas That Get You Off Your TUSH

 It doesn't matter if you’re hanging out with your crush, your spouse, your BFF, or even your grandma: these days, when you want to hang out with someone special, it’s easy to engage in activities that require a lot of...sitting. Now listen, I love me a good Netflix binge, and I don’t mind spending an afternoon with my rear end glued to the couch at a local coffee shop. I just think it’s important to balance all that sitting with a little bit of ACTION, ya know? This post is meant to inspire you and bae when you feel yourselves slipping into the depths of your couch. Let's get moving!

My Diet May Shock You

I love awkward small talk. You know the kind I'm talking about. You're introduced to someone at an event and you’re both internally like, “K...what do I say now?” We often stick with the usual material: weather, sports, TV shows, etc. For me, the fun really starts when the conversation turns towards, “So what do you do for a living?” When I tell people that I work in the field of nutrition, I can almost guarantee that they'll ask me something along the lines of, "So does that mean you like...only eat kale?" And (with maybe too much elation), I...

How I Maintained a Healthy Lifestyle Abroad

I’ve never been a huge fan of Chef Boyardee, but on my first trip abroad I thought I was brilliant for stuffing my duffle bag with canned ravioli. Terrified of throwing away my money at expensive Swiss restaurants, I lugged those cold, mushy (and heavy) squares all over Lucerne in hopes that they would sustain me. Thankfully, during my four months studying abroad in Geneva, Switzerland, I quickly learned that I didn’t have to eat like a preschooler. It took a bit of trial and error, but it wasn’t long until I became pretty good at both purchasing and preparing...

Can sugar-y foods give me acne?

Can sugar-y foods give me acne?

“Why do you have polka dots on your face?” -every child I ever babysat. Their honest curiosity always cut to the quick. My pimply skin was not intentional, nor welcome. I did practically everything I could to combat it: washed my face, rarely wore makeup, and tried every mask and cream out there. No matter what I tried, the pimples triumphed. I know I’m not the only one who has experienced similar issues. The American Academy of Dermatology states that 85% of people between the ages of 12 and 24 suffer from acne. While we know that there are many...
