Rainbow Wrists

Today I decided to have a little fun and throw on all my favorite bracelets. They are all different colors but somehow all match and go together. Some are from Michigan and others are from Colorado. Some I made myself and others are even from Indonesia. I hope this inspires you to wear some fun jewelry next time you go out!

Deep Dark Chocolate Cookies

Today I made these amazing chocolate cookies. They are perfect when you need a little chocolate fix. They are gooey, chewy, delicious, and gluten-free! I found this great recipe here:   And make sure you add the cocoa powder. The first time I made these, I totally forgot to add it and let's just say that half of the dough ended up in the trash.

Side Fishtail Braid

I finally figured out how to do a side french fishtail braid. It's a little messy but I prefer it like that!

Indian Paint Brush

My favorite flowers have always been Indian Paint Brush. They grew all over behind our house in Colorado. These flowers are not only beautiful but they are also edible (and delicious!) They are similar to honeysuckle and have a sweet dew inside that you can eat. I've been wanting to paint them for my room since I can no longer pick them and eat them! :)

Gluten-Free Brownies

Yesterday I made gluten-free brownies and they were sensational! I couldn't tell they were gluten-free. They were perfectly gooey and chocolatey. You can find the recipe for these brownies here:
