Simply Elevate Your New Years with Gloria Ferrer #LiveGloriously

Hello Darlings!

This past year for me has been hectic, especially because I tend to over complicate things. One of my resolutions for 2015 is to live more simply. Whether that be from choosing not to fully book my schedule each week to allow more down time, or stop fretting about perfection, especially when it comes to food, I’m giving myself space and time to breathe.

How to: Make Your House Smell Like Christmas

Hello Darlings!

I love the holiday season. Indulgent baking, amazing cocktails, and delicious scents are winter staples. Unfortunately, since last Christmas I have moved apartments and while I am in a much better area of Denver I no longer have the space for a giant Christmas tree that I’m used to having!

5 Ways To Go Green for Saint Patrick’s Day

Hello Darlings!

When it comes to St. Patrick’s Day most people think of four leaf clovers, wearing green, and a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. However fun those ideas might be they’re fleeting. Why not go green in a different way this Saint Patrick’s Day and help take care of the environment and save yourself some money to boot?! I’ve found that the easiest way to start going green is by starting in the kitchen!

Spiked Pomegranate Cream Soda

Hello Darlings!

Happy Valentine’s Day! Holidays can be hectic. Bustling around the kitchen trying to whip up a thousand things at once: sides, appetizers, a main dish and dessert (psst. Still looking for a V-Day side dish? Check out my Pomegranate Balsamic Brussels Sprouts!) and I know personally I totally forget about concocting super complicated cocktails. Which is why this Spiked Pomegranate Cream Soda is perfect for Valentine’s day. Three ingredients and about a minute to whip up two! You really can’t get simpler than that!

Do It Yourself: Valentine’s Day Mason Jar Treats

Hello Darlings!

So. I’ve seen Valentine’s day stuff floating around the internet for a good month (btw, I’m also guilty a la: Valentine’s Day Wishlist) but it is officially February and that means I can actually post Valentine’s Day things without looking silly. Yay! So to kick off the festivities (and the obligatory sugar consumption) I’m sharing a fun gift cum decoration that’s fun for both kids and adults- I count as the latter, sometimes.

East Meets West: Asian Spice Jack and Ginger Cocktail

Hello Darlings!

Happy Chinese New Year! And with the new year: Cocktails are back- yay! In honor of the Chinese New Year I’ve concocted a cocktail that captures the essence of two of my favorite Asian flavors, Star Anise and Ginger! However, I thought I would bring a bit of western flair to two eastern spices so the Asian Spice Jack and Ginger was born! Just a warning, with this coming year the Year of the Horse in the Chinese Zodiac Calendar, this drink is quite a kick in the pants (look at me being punny).

I know that it is still January, however I feel like the spirit of Valentine’s Day is in full swing around town (and most definitely on Pinterest!).

Happy New Year! Resolutions and One Year Blogiversary!

Hello Darlings!

Happy New Year! Today marks my one-year ‘blogiversary,’ which is just crazy! I can’t believe everything that has happened this year! From moving to Denver, to getting certified as a yoga instructor, I’ve made quite a few big changes! Yesterday I posted my 13 Top Blog Posts of 2013, and thought I would start the New Year off with great intention and post my resolutions for 2014!

This is one of the first pictures I ever posted!

1. Start teaching yoga classes (eek!!)
2. Start a YouTube channel (eek again!)
3. Run consistently.
4. Travel- either in Colorado or elsewhere; find somewhere new!
5. Keep a poetry journal.
6. Take a class to learn a fun skill.
7. Make more time for those I love.
8. Continue to create and be inspired.
9. Follow through on plans.
10. Be happy!

So be ready for lots of super fun posts this coming year, starting with quite a bit of detox this month to turn over a new leaf for 2014!

Did you make any resolutions for this year? Let me know in the comments below!

Holiday Apartment Tour

Hello Darlings!

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season! When it comes to the holidays I know I am not the only one who loves to peep into everyone else’s windows and see how they’ve decorated their lives. I thought I would make things easy by sharing a bit of mine!

Do It Yourself: Christmas Tree in a Jar

Hello Darlings!

If your Christmas tree was anything like mine, you had to hack a few branches off the bottom of it to make it fit into your stand (whoops). I knew I had to keep some of those delicious smelling branches to create something gorgeous. I thought a fun little DIY Christmas project would be a great way to spend Christmas Eve!

Yoga Lovers Holiday Gift Guide

Hello Darlings!

If you’ve been following Chickadee Says for a while you might know that I adore yoga- to the point that I can now teach it (yay!).  I have a running list of items I come across that are yoga related and that I would love to have as part of my practice (or my wardrobe) so I thought I would share some of my list to give you a bit of inspiration for the yoga lover in your life (even if it is you!) From practical yoga blocks, to fabulous absurd yoga pants there’s something on this list for every kind of yogi!

What I Ate Wednesday: Holiday Cookie Party

Hello Darlings!

I love that the winter holiday season is all about getting together with greats friends and family, having fun, and being thankful for our loved ones! Last Saturday was a super fun day- I headed to the Park Meadows mall for an event with Chex playing around with recipes for Chex Mix Party mixes, then headed home to get ready for my fellow yoga teacher training girls to come over for the night!

When I have a big day ahead of me, I am all about a healthy breakfast! I love, an awesome small business granola shop (review here) and I mixed my current custom mix of granola (that has bee pollen in it-so cool!) with persimmon and Greek yogurt!

Can you tell the darlings at Mix My Own like Tinkerbelle?

What I Ate Wednesday: Thanksgiving

Hello Darlings!

This year my Thanksgiving was really low key. However, that doesn’t mean we skimped on food- thus a short but delicious What I Ate Wednesday: Thanksgiving edition!
