Currently (February 2018 Edition)

Blue Ridge Parkway

I feel like I just wrote January’s Currently post but it’s been almost a month already! How did that happen!? As you read this, I am in my car making the 11.5 hour drive from Asheville to NEW YORK. I am so excited to visit friends and family. What are you up to this weekend?  This week has been a whirlwind so let’s get right to it, shall we?

Currently I am…


Odd's Cafe

1. That it’s been warm enough in Asheville to drink iced lattes. Yesterday the high was 76 degrees. 76 DEGREES. In February! What the heck? Honestly, I love winter but I am so ready for spring. How about you?

2. My C & Co Naturals Serene Shower Mist. Just a friendly reminder that you have until the end of the month to get 10% off your whole purchase in shop or on the C & Co website! Just mention/enter promo code HEALTHYLIVING at checkout. This coupon expires at 11:59 p.m. EST on February 28, so hurry and go shopping. You don’t want to miss it!

3. My friends for coming to our Second Annual Valentine’s Day Pizza Party on Wednesday. And for making me laugh until I cried playing Cards Against Humanity.


1. Everything I mentioned in my pet peeves post: Things You Need To Stop Doing.

2. Writer’s Block. I think this stems from my anxiety about writing. Writer friends, how do you deal with this?

3. That the keys on my newish laptop keep getting stuck. MacBook Pro users. Do you have this problem?


HLBlogs Takeover Tuesday

1. Honored to have had the opportunity to take over the @HLBlogs instagram account on Tuesday. I had great time sharing my day in Asheville with the Healthy Living Blogs community. If you’re on Instagram, definitely go check it out.

2. Excited to eat New York pizza and bagels. Oh man. I love the food in Asheville so much but I’m a New Yorker at heart and miss legit New York food so much.

3. Even more excited to see my friends and family in New York, especially my best friend Dara, who just gave birth to a beautiful baby boy named Boone in December. Eeeee! It’s kind of hard to wrap my head around it. We’ve been friends since preschool and now she has a baby! Howwwww?


1. This sweet top and dress from one my favorite shops in Asheville: Minx Boutique. I buy 90 percent of my clothing at Minx. I just love them so much! The ladies who work there are always so helpful and kind.

2. This flowy, romantic Free People dress from Reciprocity, another of my favorite Asheville shops.

3. Tee shirts and flip flops because it’s so warm in Asheville.

4. Coffee. Because apparently I’m really good at spilling things all over myself.

Listening to:

1. No Roots– Alice Merton
2. Come On Up To The House -Tom Waits cover by Sarah Jarosz
3. Little Swing– AronChupa
4. Oo La La– Beth Ditto
5. Nobody Knows – The Lumineers
6. Tear Down The House– The Avett Brothers


Sunny Point Cafe
1. Sunny Point Cafe for breakfast every day of my life.

2. You to read Erin’s blog post about Adjusting To A Changing Body.

3. This Crispy Brussels Sprouts and Ricotta Pizza with Balsamic Glaze.

4. Daylight Saving!! So close!

What’s up with you lately!? Have a great day! <3

So, it’s no secret that I like food…A LOT. I mean, have you met me? I know I can’t be the only one though, so I thought it would be fun to list some surefire ways to tell if you are, in fact, a foodie. If I missed any, be sure to let me know in the comments.

You might be a foodie if…

  • It’s 6 a.m. and you’re already thinking about what you’re going to have for dinner.


  • You have stacks and stacks of cookbooks that you read cover to cover like novels.
  • Your friends randomly send you pictures of what they’re eating.

Friend Food

  • You read restaurant menus for fun, even if you have no plans of going.
  • You take pictures of other people’s food from the next table over. (Yes. I did that. No, I’m not ashamed.)Liberty House Cafe

  • You’ve seriously considered enrolling in a culinary program, but not to work in the field, just to learn the tricks.
  • You are your friends’ go-to person for restaurant recommendations.



  • You plan vacations around food.
  • You interrupt your friends’ stories about their day to ask where they ate.
  • Your loved ones know not to let you get hangry.

  • You watch cooking shows religiously…even while you’re working out at the gym (yes, I do this).
  • You actually like going to the grocery store and spend an obnoxiously long time there.
  • You idolize celebrity chefs, rather than Hollywood celebrities.
  • You have multiple Pinterest boards dedicated to food.


  • You not only remember what you’ve ordered at restaurants in the past, you remember what your loved ones have ordered too.
  • You write a blog with the tagline: “Healthy Living In A World Full of Food” 😉

What did I miss? Tell me in the comments! Happy Eating!

Have a wonderful day! <3
