My favourite way to use up items in the fridge so they don’t go to waste is to make a quiche☺️ The combinations are endless! This one has seafood cakes that were leftover from Sunday brunch, havarti, and chives🥚🍤🧀
Do you have sweet littles in your home that you have to constantly keep out from under the sink? Me too Mama, me too. It was such a struggle until I made the switch to all natural cleaners!🙈❤️ Forever grateful that I did! Swipe to see the promo that is happening for the rest of the month! It’s so exciting!
Hey guess what? It’s an accurate representation of most of my days.😂🙈 I just love my sweet girl, my amazing life, handsome man human, and all the in between moments.🥰 • I just started following the most amazing human (@simplysuzys ) who has a “highs and lows time” with her family each day and I thought it was the greatest idea!😍 What was your high moment today?☺️ Mine was getting to visit a sweet friend in person for the first time.😊
This is me in my happy place. I love cooking, creating, and having fun. I am so thankful to be able to share all of that with you. . It’s so funny to think about when I started this identity of Mississippi Vegan. Truly, just for fun. What I didn’t know was that it was so much *larger* that I could have ever imagined. To think that I was creating a brand and a career for myself and I truly had no idea is crazy to me. . This year is a very important year for me. I am really focusing on growing my blog and I’m working hard to be consistent with creating recipes that I know you all will love. . Which reminds me, I have a new recipe that is live and ready to go! It’s my vegan hamburger helper and I’ve linked it in my bio. . Before I go, I just wanted to say that I love to being here on this platform and sharing this space with all of you. From recipes to playlists to shenanigans on my stories, I think we have a good time and that makes me very happy. . Gorgeous shot by my pal @mattricephotography
Day 21| Here we are already at the last third of #may30x30 challenge! Only 9 more days to go! How’s everybody feeling this far? - Always love a good black and white outfit. For this one, it consists of a black @everlane Pima cotton tee, an off white @aritzia pencil skirt, and a pair of black kitten heels.
Just over here pretending this dreamy Bronco is mine. Maybe one day 🌵 — I’ve been living in my new @tradlands pieces all weekend 🙌 The tensel linen blend has been perfect for these temperamental spring days here in SF and this color feels like summer ☀️ — #gifted#tradlands#tradlandswornwell
So thankful for him! 😍 Sharing our goals for this month of May, along with a few family updates on our blog, Finding Philothea! Click the link in our profile or visit findingphilothea.com to read! 💙 📷: @katiemccauleyphoto
My oldest snuggleoffagus started t-ball tonight. There he is trying to pick his wedgie with his baseball glove and chatting up the girl next to him in the "out field" and I'm over on the side lines with tears in my eyes. So proud. Thanks for the joy kid. Gratitude is an easy one with you around.
I miss the sun. Montana has been under constant cloud cover for the past week with a high of 45 degrees - exactly how I left Boston two weeks ago. Go figure 😂 . I want to go back to a week ago when the sun was so bright I could barely open my eyes. It was wonderful. End rant.
🦋 You'll hear everyone say "if you fall, get back up again." And that's all great until it's a scrape on your own shin. When you can't tell up from down, close your eyes and breathe in. Everything you need has always been there within. 🦋
How do you feel about recognition? Is there a certain way you prefer to be recognized for your awesomeness? . It's interesting how it can sometimes feel weird or uncomfortable and at other times feel so touching and amazing. . Gonna take a moment to acknowledge how awesome my husband is. He is such a hard worker and just an amazing human being. . @sioneuyema came home yesterday with an award from work. His coworkers nominated and voted for him to receive it (swipe right). . And tonight we'll be celebrating with another 101 Financial student with some tacos. She's a school teacher and had a loan that would have taken 9 more years to pay off, but because of the 101 system Sione and @hawaiianoutofstate helped her pay it off in a month...without increasing her income. . It's one thing to be amazing at what you do, but when you are helping others live their best life as the best version of themselves it should be shared freely to inspire others, in my opinion. . Let's let our lights shine and encourage others to do the same.
Ethics and values. They help define us as individual human beings, acknowledging the distinction between the right and the wrong; the good and the bad. Everyone of us has the knowledge and the ability to make conscious, ethical choices if we wanted to but the question is, what are you doing to help guide this in the aspects of your life? There is no definite fact nor theory that helps us resolve or resonate any ethical conflicts especially as different minds and lives intertwine with one another during the many moments of our day however one thing should always be kept in mind... and that is first do no harm. ❂
Commending my younger self for taking these beautiful photos. 🌸 • Often I find it difficult to articulate the depth of a feeling or sensation of a place at a particular point in my life. For much of my late teens to early twenties, I suffered with an ED, depression, & social anxiety. I remember bits and pieces of this time, tbh I don’t remember a ton; this season of my life left me feeling very dazed and foggy. I also think my mind has blocked out a lot of the memories as a coping mechanism for moving forward. I remember the sensation of feeling weak & waifish, of being sad a lot, feeling lonely a lot, even with friends & in a relationship. But what I find interesting is that equally, I remember feeling hope & whimsy. I remember looking forward to better days, to believing in happily ever after, in hoping to do great things & make a positive change, despite all the heaviness. I was in an unhealthy relationship for a good deal of this period, but despite that I still believed things would improve & love would flourish. I still had so much drive to thrive. And I absolutely love that I found that strength despite some serious hurdles. • While waiting in traffic on the way home today, I wondered when I lost that. When did I become bitter? When did I feel like I always had to have something to prove to people for acceptance? When did I become jaded? When did I lose my whimsy? When did I become a cynic? I don’t know the answer to any of that. I’d probably say it happened after a series of failed relationships & broken trust, after jobs that were utter letdowns, after feeling lost & directionless, without much guidance or support from academia, parents, or friends. In short, it came with growing up. • But I don’t want to stay that way. I want my wanderlust back. I want that dreamlike zeal & whimsy. I want joy. I want to be myself without worry of being alienated. I want purpose & place. But I don’t quite know how to achieve that. How do I get back to
Happy Tuesday, friends! We talked all about paraffin wax the other day so I figured we should jump to a completely different side of the spectrum and talk about beeswax. 🐝 ⠀ ⠀ It’s estimated bees must travel 150,000 miles and consume 6-8lbs of honey to create 1lb of wax. Beeswax is made when a farmer takes honeycomb and melts it in boiling water. Then it’s strained and cooled. ⠀ ⠀ Fast Facts & things to look out for: 🍯 Beeswax is a great option for pillar candles because it’s so sturdy. ⠀ 🍯 This wax has a naturally subtle and slightly sweet honey aroma. ⠀ 🍯Because the wax is heavy, adding scents (fragrance & essential oils) get trapped. Making them hard to smell and causing them to fade fast. ⠀ 🍯 It’s hard to find beeswax from small suppliers vs commercial beekeepers. This makes it hard to know if your honeycomb is collected in a sustainable and ethical way. If you aren't shopping directly from a beekeeper/keeping the bees yourself, it's hard to know what you're getting. ⠀ 🍯 This wax starts out white but due to the exposure to nectar, pollen, etc. it develops a golden hue. Most big companies that sell white beeswax use bleach and chemical filtration techniques to give it a white, bright look. There are natural ways to get a white look, but it can be hard to know what you’re *really* getting. ⠀ 🍯 There are manmade versions of beeswax that have been made to look like natural beeswax. Make sure you’re buying the real deal!
Every time I visit a new city or state I always feel like it’s my favorite place, but truly Arizona was my favorite. Granted I haven’t made it to South Africa or Australia yet, but the colors, the landscape, everything was just so perfectly earth-toned!🌵
Testing out my new summer hat (thanks, @gigipip!) and @madewell Emmett pants. 👒👖 . When I'm not sure how to style a piece, I always take pictures! This hat intimidated me so much at first, but once I started photographing it, I fell in love. I'm so glad that I pushed myself to try something new!! . On the other hand, I loved these pants online, but now I'm wondering if I should get the longer version. I'm always unsure with wide leg pants! What do you think?! . Also, don't I look ready for vacation?! Who wants to take me with them?! 😍😍😍 . . . @liketoknow.it http://liketk.it/2BYMv #liketkit
We’d planned to head out for a walk this evening but then *sighs* there was rain. And thunder 😑 (which I really don’t like) and then more rain. So it was a night in for us. This one is from a recent blue-skied and sunshine-y walk I had with Mum. _ Harness by @ruffwear_uk. _ #momentsofmine#thefisherrowseries _
I can honestly say my cats take up most of the pictures in my phone. I am a straight up cat mom. 😂 and darn proud of it too! Most of the pictures I take of Coffee (pictured), you can really only see his eyes and the rest of him just blends into everything. 😂 so when the light hits him just right, I gotta take advantage of it. 👌🏻 lol I love our sweet boy!!
