Croque Madame


When I was in Paris this past May, I enjoyed classic French foods from crepes to macarons and delicious baguette sandwiches. One particlar item that I wished I could have while there was a croque madame. So I deceided to make one at home. This is probably one of the most amazing sandwiches ever (using this recipe)! the spread that I made certainly is unique and the classic egg on top is the perfect topping.

Small Backpacks

Small Bags

A highlight of school starting for me was all of the new supplies that I would stock up on for the new year. One particular item that excited me was a new backpack. However, instead of a Jansport, a smaller version is a great update/upgrade for those of us no longer in school anymore. I think a small backpack is a great accessory for being on the go while remaining stylish. Here are a few of my favorites:

1. Sole Society Brandice Mini Backpack ~ $45
2. Free People Love Worn Backpack ~ $258
3. Michael Michael Kors Jett Set Small Studded Backpack ~ $298
4. Loeffler Randall Lock Backpack ~ $550
5. Danielle Nicole Sloane Backpack ~ $88
6. Proenza Schouler PS1 Small Backpack ~ $1,675
7. Love Moschino Double Zipper Small Backpack ~ $295
8. Tory Burch Marion Quilted Small Backpack ~ $450

Grilled Peaches


Peaches are probably my favorite fruit. So it’s always fun to incorporate my favorite fruit into different recipes. One recipe that I have wanted to try is grilled peaches. So one night when we were grilling hamburgers, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to test out this recipe. And served with vanilla ice cream, it was the perfect dessert on a warm night.
