Lemon Curd

Lemon Curd

Ever since graduating from pastry school, I’ve been more open to trying new flavors I would have never tried before. One of those flavors is everything lemon. From lemon bars, to lemon cake, it’s officially one of my new favorite flavors. That’s why when my best friend asked me to make some macarons for her sister’s bridal shower, I knew lemon had to be included in the flavor line-up. This meant I was in need of a delicious lemon curd. The recipe is incredibly simple, and yields delicious results.

Blueberry Basel Lemonade

Earlier this summer my best friend and I went to a free bootcamp class in the city. We were mostly motivated to go because after the class we would receive a free meal from Sweetgreen. The thought of their Blueberry Basel Lemonade is what kept me going throughout all the drill-like exercises. After that day, I was hooked on the summer drink. I would have never thought to combine blueberry and basel, but they are the perfect combination. Thankfully, Sweetgreen posted the recipe online, so now I can indulge in the drink anytime I want!

DIY Studded Rhinestone Box Necklace

Studded Box Necklace

I’m back! In case you hadn’t noticed, I decided to take a little break from blogging. It’s mostly been due to a lack of time and inspiration, but I hope to be back in full swing really soon! I have so many projects lined up that all I need now is the time to make them. I commend those DIY bloggers who manage to post projects almost everyday! (P.S. How do you do it?!) Anyway, today I’m bringing you this awesome Studded Rhinestone box necklace. It’s a great way to use up some leftover craft supplies from previous projects. Plus, it’s super easy to make!

Materials

Materials:

- Box Chain
- Studs
- Rhinestones
- Jump Rings & Fastener
- Chain (If the box chain is too short)
- Scissors
- Super Glue

Studded Box Necklace If your box chain is too short, cut two pieces of chain to the length you want the necklace to fall. Attach to box chain using a jump ring. On one end attach just a jump ring, and jump ring and fastener on the other.

Studded Box Necklace Add a drop of superglue to the box chain.

Studded Box Necklace Carefully place the stud over the drop of glue.

Studded Box Necklace Continue gluing the studs onto the box chain. I added a stud to every other upward facing box.

Studded Box NecklaceAdd studs until you reach the end of the chain.

Studded Box Necklace Attach the rhinestones in a similar fashion to the studs. I added the rhinestones between the studs.

Studded Box NecklaceLet the studs and rhinestones dry completely before wearing.

Studded Box NecklaceVoila!

Carrot Juice

Carrot Juice

I’m pretty spoiled in the juicing department. My parents make sure I get my daily serving of vegetables with a green juice every morning. This time however, I was craving a simple and refreshing carrot juice. I also wanted something sweeter so I decided to add pineapples and mangoes. It was the perfect combination. Though I wouldn’t drink this everyday because of the natural sugars, it is perfect for a warm day!

Carrot Juice I used about 6-8 carrots, a whole mango, and half a pineapple, all diced and thrown in the juicer.

Carrot Juice Seriously, so good!
