Lets #SeeSummerBetter with Warby Parker!

Where are my Warby Parker lovers?? Raise your hand and lets make #SeeSummerBetter together, preferably in an awesome pair of trendy clear glasses!  

New summer collection from Warby Parker, summer is here! 

When the seasons change, so do my glasses, at least I hope! For all my four-eye, glasses wearing friends out there, we can at least have fun! Right?! I mean, if we have to wear glasses we might as well like them, have fun, and change them up. I cannot wear contacts, I have to wear prism lenses. When I was told I needed glasses in high school I was determined to find "fun" glasses. I remember my very first pair were black, Gucci, round chunky glasses; I loved them. Sadly, online shopping did not exist then and I was stuck to what my local eye doctors office carried. 

Flash forward to the age of online shopping, hailing a taxi through your phone, and snap chatting every minute detail of you life...

Enter the time of Warby Parker!! My glasses (and sunglasses) game has been changed forever. I first discovered Warby Parker from a friend on Facebook. She insisted I go to the website and check it out. Holy fun, Batman! 

If you have not been to the website yet, go now, seriously, click here!! Or you could be old school and Warby Parker visit a store, ha!

I am really loving the latest summer collection. I am OBSESSED with clear/crystal or semi-tinted glasses trend right now. WP has a ton to choose from, I can't decide, help me! And the crystal look is perfect for summer. I am SO ready to ditch my dark, tortoise glasses, and trade them in for a light, refreshing pair. Who says geek can't be chic? Vintage glam will always be in style, I am glad WP brought back that old-school glam this summer with glasses AND sunglasses. 

I am loving the tropical floral trend right now as well, I have seen some great florals from Zara and J.Crew. I can't wait to pair tropical prints with a pair of crystal glasses!

I love the Ratti print from J.Crew. This off the shoulder dress would look perfect with some Warby Parker frames!

FYI Warby Parker also has an awesome Home Try-On program. You can also use the hashtag #WarbyHomeTryOn on Instagram or Twitter, and their team can easily find your photos and comment on the styles they think suit you the best! Pretty darn cool!

And I can't forget about the sunglasses. I will take one of each, thank you very much! I am LOVING the retro, old-school glamour sunglasses. Help me pick which one!

Easy Paleo Zucchini Boats for Whole 30

Whole 30 Compliant (Paleo) Zucchini Boats



I just discovered the easiest and most versatile paleo and Whole 30 complainant dish- zucchini boats! I cannot get over how easy and tasty they were; you can get really creative with your filings. 

I think the secret is to bake the zucchini "boats" and filling separate. For my first attempt I did a simple beef (grass fed, organic), onion, tomato, bell pepper, and seasoning combo for the filling.

To make the boats:
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees
- Cut the ends of the zucchini, then cut lengthwise, place cut side down on a baking sheet. Brush with olive oil and salt and pepper. Bake for 15 minutes (depending on how tender you like them) 
- make filling while boats are in oven. I just cooked up some peppers and onion, then coked up the beed. Added the pepper mixture and tomatoes to the beef. 
- pull the "boats" out of the oven and fill with the beef and veggie mixture and serve

You can get very creative and the filing options are endless! 

Feel free to leave a comment with your suggestions for fillings. Sharing is caring :)
