Best Summer Ever!


Hip hip hooray, summer is here! Jump for joy, the season has officially begun. The countdown to vacations, beach days and barbecues is ticking. My days are longer and the nights (and sleep) are certainly shorter, because I'm enjoying the beautiful weather and soaking up the sun as much as possible. The New Jersey weather is perfect for catching up on my latest read (Modern Lovers, a 2016 Best Seller), grabbing a stroll with the pups after work and enjoying dinner on the deck.

Celebrate with my new background for iPhone and Android and make 2017 the best summer ever! Download your wallpaper here.

Last Minute Father's Day Gift Ideas

DIWhy and DIY

Father's Day is a tough one to shop for. The conversation with my dad usually goes like this.
"Dad, is there anything you want for [insert upcoming holiday/birthday here]." 
 "No, nothing. Save you're money."
"Well, is there anything you need."
Thanks dude, enlightening. I love showing up empty handed on holidays and birthdays and looking like a giant asshole...said no one ever. In my old age I have simply stopped asking what the man wants in an attempt to save myself at least one headache. The inevitable headache of trying to brainstorm a semi-useful gift for this impossible man is still unavoidable.

Abby's Dairy Free Coconut Mocha Faux-caccino

Starbucks Hack

Summer is (almost) here but the weather is finally into summer swing. After weeks of gloomy, bitter, rainy weekends, the sun is shining and the thermometer has broken 80, almost 90 degrees. 90 degree temps are in the forecast for the next several days and I need a way to beat the heat, on a budget and without totally blowing my diet out of the water.

June is here! Freebies anyone?!


It is officially June. Memorial Day has come and gone, summer has unofficially begun, school is winding down and everyone has the beach, sand and surf on their minds. Dreaming of vacation but can't escape to the beach just yet? Not to worry. I have you covered.
