WE BACK Y’ALL.

Lend a {Healthy} Hand #77: New button debut!

That’s right! Lend a {Healthy} Hand is back this week after a few weeks off. After I decided to cut down on my posting for the semester and not do the round up every week I was worried people would lose interest and the project would land on the back burner. But I have to say, you all have still been awesome with submitting your #healthyhelp and now that I am not compiling it every week, it makes each round up a little more fun! I look forward to sharing these small positive things happening out in the world and I hope you get some inspiration and joy from them as well!

CL Thursdays+PopSugar Must Have Box

[Have you entered my Larabar giveaway yet? Lots of Larabar goodies up for grabs!]

I am so excited to share this week’s College Lifestyles article with you! This is the article I had the most fun writing all semester and I am sure you guys will love it.

Let’s face it, we all LOVE “Hocus Pocus”….am I right? Definitely the best Halloween movie out there. Even Buzzfeed named it ‘the best and most important part of Halloween‘. Well I was tasked with coming up with five “Hocus Pocus” inspired Halloween treats! I decided to get a little creative and come up with some healthy options to have amongst all the candy during this time of year. These snacks are PERFECT for a “Hocus Pocus” themed party or just some Halloween festivities in general!

WIAW: Take a Hike with Larabar

Thanks to LÄRABAR for sponsoring today’s discussion.

It’s WIAW and today I have some fun news from one of my favorite companies to share with you!

If you didn’t know, National Take a Hike Day is coming up! Three days before my birthday actually. So on November 17th, LÄRABAR is encouraging people to get outside, lace up some hiking shoes (sneakers are fine!), and enjoy the beautiful foliage that fall has to offer! Did you know the whole idea of LÄRABAR  happened on a hike? They sent me an awesome LARAbag full of LÄRABAR products and gear for getting outside!

Recipe Redux #13: Easy Butternut Squash Soup

Well this month’s Recipe Redux theme resulted in a FIRST for me! Usually I have a hard time coming up with something to make, and I’ll admit I was at a loss to begin with, but by the time October got going, I found I had not one, but TWO recipes that I could share! It was hard deciding which one to share (let’s face it, you’ll be getting the other at some point too!), but I am happy with my decision and can’t wait for you all to try this perfect fall dish. A few of you have inquired about this recipe over the past few weeks as it is, so that definitely played into my decision to share this one first! Recipe Redux #13: Easy Butternut Squash Soup But before I get to the recipe itself, I should probably fill you in the theme of course!
October 2014 – Theme

Spooky Spices: You know they are lurking there: Way in the back of your spice drawer. There lie the herbs, spices, or rubs that are getting dusty because you’re afraid to use them… you simply don’t know what to do with them! Well, pull them out and show us a recipe you created to deliciously conquer that fearful spice. (Or maybe the recipe was a flop – and the spice still give you nightmares?!)
