I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Millennial Central for Brancott Estate Wines. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.  As always, all opinions are 100% own.  This post is intended for readers of the legal drinking age. Who likes wine?  Everyone?  Obviously.  That’s why I was so excited to try Brancott Estate Wines Flight Song.  First of all, check out their website — I love the artwork/branding on this wine.  It’s fun and quirky (just like me, right?).  They sent me a Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio to try and before I even tasted it, I was immediately lured in by the fact that it was crafted to be 20% lighter in calories than...

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Millennial Central for Kirin. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. Do you like trying new beers?  I love going to beer festivals and sampling a little bit of everything, heading out to a taproom (Michigan has a surprisingly active brewery scene), or just popping into the “fancy” party store in town and grabbing a few bottles of whatever looks interesting that day.  That’s when I was so excited from Millennial Central reached out with an opportunity to try Kirin Ichiban and Kirin Light.  If you’ve never tried Kirin beer (I hadn’t!), it’s a 100% malt, first-press beer — and if you’re anything like my friends, those words...

My name is Kelly, and I’m an Indian-food-aholic.  Pre-Advocare cleanse (update on that later in the post), my friend Lauren and I had these coupons for our local Indian buffet that basically made it $5, which basically forced us to eat there every Thursday for lunch.  After weeks of eating piles of delicious pakoras, navartan korma, saag, paneer tikka masala, and whatever-those-delicious-little-dessert-balls-floating-in-syrup-that-taste-like-pancakes-are-called, I shocked my system by not going for several weeks in a row.  My body refused to accept this, and I dreamed about Indian food.  I wish I was joking, but I straight-up had a dream I was eating pakoras soaked in some sort of delicious sauce that came off an orange-colored veggie dish while the aforementioned syrup drenched thingies danced on a nearby table.  Danced. I know...

We mustn’t dwell. No, not today.  We can’t.  Not on Rex Manning Day. *Cue Music and terrible dancing* I wish I could’ve made you all buttons that say “Marc Sucks” but instead I made you cupcakes, just like Corey would’ve.  From scratch, because there are 24 usable hours in every day.  Are you sick of my Empire Records references yet? You know a recipe has to be tasty for me to let it share the spotlight, right?  I actually made these a while ago and have been greedily holding on to them.  I had strawberry syrup sitting in my fridge just begging me to make a delicious strawberry flavored baked good (after I’d had my fill of soda) and I’d already made these vegan vanilla cupcakes a few times (because bathroom construction was leading me...

If you pressed your ear against the window’s of my house hoping to see what Josh and I fight about, (well, for starts you need a new hobby, my friend) you’d be pretty bored with what you heard.  99% of the time, what we fight about is food.  I spend a ridiculous amount of time planning a weekly menu, making the grocery list, and ensuring we have enough snacks to not gnaw our own hands off while Josh spends a normal human amount of time eating food.  I’m constantly on his case about contributing to the meal plan, to which he responds, “Why can’t we have vegan buffalo mac and cheese every day?” <– I’m not kidding. Much to my surprise, Josh asked a few weeks ago if we could have...

If you regularly read my blog and pay a medium amount of attention, you’ve probably noticed that I don’t eat eggs very often.  It’s not that I won’t eat eggs, but just that the idea of eggs can really creep me out.  They’re one of those foods that I’ll eat when I specifically want them and never just because they’re in front of me (I wish I was like that with chips and cookies, am I right?). Well lately, I’ve had a never ending egg craving.  I’ve been thinking that it’s my body craving protein while doing this cleanse, since I’m avoiding dairy (and presume that it’s a pretty big contributor to my protein intake because cheese and I are besties), but then it hit me this morning — Easter! ...
