While our last weekend was spent in the mountains where we were treated to daily rain showers, an unexpected run-in with a black bear (don’t worry, we were inside at the time, but I have a picture that looks like the bear is about to give my Jeep bumper a lick!), nature-filled photo opportunities and the most delicious meatball pizza I’ve ever had, I’m popping over to my favorite blow-out bar so I can shoot a campaign for a brand I’ve worked with a few times before, if you have a guess on which brand it is, leave your guesses in the comments at the bottom of the post.
more exciting news…

This Tomato Confit Pasta Salad from What’s Gaby Cooking looks like the perfect comfort food for a Saturday evening… also it’s an excellent way to use up your fresh herbs. Also, I like the idea of serving this Pan Con Tomato from A Couple Cooks as an appetizer.
I can’t wait to share how I’ve styled this Beach Tiered Maxi Dress from LOFT. I’m just obsessed with polka dots, and after Meghan Donovan of Wit & Whimsy shared about it on Instagram, I knew I had to have it!
I’ve had taco bowls on the brain lately, and I definitely plan on recreating this Beef Taco Salad Bowl from Averie Cooks with either ground chicken or pork.
I just received my first order from HIVE and I can’t wait to try out the Peanut Butter with Wildflower Honey and Sea Salt… it will be PERFECT for recreating this Peanut Butter Jelly Crumble from How Sweet Eats.
I’ve been considering trying other dairy-free milk lately (mainly the Oat Milk from Chobani) and the Cook Republic recently shared a recipe for a Vegan Strawberry Milkshake that looks so delicious.
