Cashews and Cashmere

14 Jan


I decided to write my blog on two items that I am most passionate about; food and fashion!

My food journey started about 10 years ago when I decided to really change my eating habits and put some thought into what I was putting into my body. The most significant changes I made were eating way less processed foods and eating more real and whole foods! What I mean by real is food that Mother Nature gave us; nuts, fruit, vegetables, and meat. My diet is mostly organic (when available) however, NOT perfect but, I do what I can when I can. It’s impossible (and boring) to be perfect all the time! I love eating good food specifically organic, raw, and local! I also love to explore my community for sustainable food sources, restaurants, cafes, farms, and anything else I can get my hands on! More recently I decided to start making some raw desserts – and for the most part all turned out amazing and so yummy! I love the recipes that I have tried to far and can’t wait to share them with you!

Another passion of mine is fashion! I love shopping for unique items and also LOVE exploring one-of-a kind shops for beautiful clothes and items for the home! The super trendy stuff is also amazing! Both are intriguing to me! I am obsessed with details; I love things that are unique and beautiful! I have an appreciation for simplicity as well – there is nothing more stunning than wearing a simple dress with a wow statement necklace! Less is more!

And there is NOTHING better than enjoying amazing food followed by some shopping! I hope you enjoy my blog and please feel free to share your food and fashion adventures with me!
