Kendra Scott Mood Board


I am kind of obsessed with Kendra Scott's new spring collection. There are a lot of people that collect these pieces that hate it because they look "unfinished" but I love how out of the box and boho this collection is. I was getting bored with just color updates and no new shapes. I think these are super cute!


It's snowing in PDX and this mood board makes me want it to be spring already. I haven't gone to work all week and it's Wednesday! It looks like tomorrow won't be a good day to come in either. The struggle is real. I don't understand driving on ice. I know people that do it but I am just not here for that. I am luckily able to work from home so my couch has been my desk. It's so much harder to do spreadsheets, trust me working from home is overrated. Its great for people that have children or just the ability to not be forced to consume a vacation day because of weather! Anyway, I'm here for spring and these boho vibes.
LOVE, MARA

Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day!
I spent the weekend doing a proper galentines dinner! It's kind of annoying being in an LDR bc all everyone is doing is talking about date nights. I wanted to do something with people I enjoy being around, so that was that. I wore this adorable jumpsuit from a Target x Isani collab. I found it at a thrift store but I knew it had to be mine!
Linked below are really cute pick me up items. Aesthetically, they fit into today. But in real life, they are the perfect addition to everything.

CAN WE TALK ABOUT DANIELLE CATHARI AND ADIDAS?

Like seriously? Can we talk about Danielle Cathari and adidas? Danielle is a fun designer from Amsterdam and she has reinvented the adidas tracksuit into something really fun.
This denim look on the right? NEED. MUST HAVE. GOTTA COP. In doubt, the black track suit is really cool too. The colors are cool right? They are almost the pillars of the collection representing 4 cities. These "city tracksuits" are representative of New York (orange), London (blue), Paris (yellow) and Shanghai (Pink). There are definite 90's notes and 100% street style appeal.

EDIBLE COOKIE DOUGH RECIPE FEAT. GARBANZO BEANS

Five ingredients. 
Some people file this as dessert hummus, which is fair because the main ingredient is Garbanzo beans. I was looking for alternatives to fill my sweet tooth and I decided to give this a try. The game has forever been changed. This is what you need:

1 Can Garbanzo Beans
1/2 Cup of Peanut Butter (I use PB2 because I prefer it to any nut butter but you can use any nut)
2 tbsp Maple or Honey
1 tsp of Vanilla
1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips 

Major key here, to help the texture and taste RINSE your garbanzo beans. Roll them with paper towels and peel the thin casing off of all of them. It's not difficult to do but definitely makes a difference.
To make, food process everything but the chocolate. At the end fold in the chocolate chips! 
IT'S THAT EASY.

I brought it to work and pretty much everyone was amazed and had no clue it had garbanzo beans. I think  it would be a good dip for apples or celery! For anyone who needs a quick sweet tooth fix I definitely thing you should give it a try!
LOVE, MARA
