Caesars: Bloody Mary’s cooler, and better tasting, cousin

How To Make An All Canadian Caesar Cocktail

Caesars are my go-to drink in the summer. They pair perfectly with nachos, sitting on the deck, and having a good time. Disclaimer: I have not been paid to write about this, I just love supporting brave brands that care about their customers and the planet.

If you’ve never heard of a Caesar cocktail, not the delicious salad, it’s okay. You just haven’t spent enough time in Canada!

Caesars are a vodka drink made with tomato juice mixed with clam juice, sounds gross but stay with me here, and spices.

With the invention of Pinterest, the growth of online Nutritionists and the popularity of healthy lifestyles it’s become even easier to start meal planning.

The Natural Sunscreen That You Need This Summer

Natural Sunscreen July 2016

Tartegaurd is the natural sunscreen that every brave babe needs to have. This post is not sponsored. I’m just in love with this sunscreen.

Recently I discovered the paradise that is Sephora. 

I went in looking for bronzer, and I walked away with that plus an amazing natural sunscreen Tartegaurd. This is special to me for two reasons. One, it’s paraben and phthalate free (more on that later) and second, it doesn’t smell like cheap coconut scented sunscreen that I wore when I was 12. So for people who say that the chemicals in sunscreen are more dangerous than the sun itself, I’m sorry, but you’re wrong.
