Roasted Blueberry Ricotta Crostini

I first found this recipe on Two Peas and Their Pod Blog but added and took away a couple things. I skipped the lemon zest and added the fresh mint for some garnish. I think this is a great hors d'oeuvre for this holiday season. It's something that you can throw together pretty quick and is travel friendly! 
Also, I think it's really great for a quick lunch!

2 cups fresh blueberries
4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided
1 tablespoon honey
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 French baguette, thinly sliced and toasted
Fresh mint for garnishAdditional honey, for drizzling

Local Lovin' | Threads on 8th

So a while back my friend Rachel and I had the privilege to collaborate with the shop, Threads on 8th Located in Holland, Mi! Now in one word I'd describe the store, is classy. The ladies who buy for the store know exactly what they're doing. When you walk in, you're walking into high end, good quality pieces that will last you a lifetime. This whole outfit was styled at Threads on 8th you can find every piece there!

Holiday Gift Guide | $100 & Under

It blows my mind that Christmas is just five weeks away. So I thought it would the perfect time to start little gift guide! Gift guides are one of my favorite posts; I love that bloggers find items that are so unique, and I believe it makes Christmas shopping just a little easier!

I'm a big fan of unique gifts, and finding gifts are sentimental and that goes with people's personalities. I picked the items below because I think  they could be that one thing that your family or friends are missing in their home.

Libby The Bug

Stripes and Aztec

(This post is going to be mushy and a little dramatic but bare with me.)

So yesterday I hit a little milestone in my life and bought a car! Well, me and the credit union did, but I STILL, bought a new car but got rid of my little bug. Not going to lie I had a little cry sesh after driving away because of all the memories in that bug. I met Matt when I had a bug; I got Millie when I had the bug when I started this blog and for a few outfits, it was quite the backdrop! Lol! That little bug was my changing room for MANY outfit posts. Lol as many of you can relate. Or maybe some of you are actually organized with your outfit posts, unlike me.
Anyways, Libby the bug was great, and I loved her but was time for a big girl car. (That I freaking love and am super stoked about.) Buuuut, I love you little Libby bug. I hope you make another teenage girl feel just as sassy driving you as you did for me.

Yes, I know I'm dramatic.

Local Lovin' | Vander Mill Ciders

Last week Matt and I took the week off! The day before we left for Traverse City we had dropped Millie off at my parents and on our way home we decided to stop by Vander Mill and check it out! Prior to going, I had purchased their ciders at Horrocks, and I enjoyed them! Their ciders are delicious as well as their food!

One thing I REALLY love about Vander Mill Ciders is that they make everything in the store/restaurant, their menu changes with season. They get all of the food and produce from local farmers, so whatever you eat and drink there, know you're supporting local! 

The whole place was super neat. The people were great, food and drinks were fantastic and the whole restaurant had a really awesome vibe to it.
