Copious Crush

20130207-163853.jpg
This week I had the fabulous opportunity to be featured as Copious’s Copious Crush. Copious is an awesome site to sell your duds after a closet clean out or a random Tuesday where nothing in your closet seems to be working. It’s a great way to snatch pieces from your most stylish friends. Check out my fun interview here!

Cruising through the Capital

After returning from Florida on Thursday, I repacked for cold weather and headed to DC with one of my best friends.

They have the best vegan carrot cake cupcakes I’ve ever tried. Yes, the Whole30 got pushed back to this week to avoid torturing myself, and not being able to prepare meals while traveling.

The trip was filled with fun touristy DC  sight-seeing.

Smoke & Barrel DC

On Saturday we had brunch at Smoke & Barrel. This is one of my faves in DC. A brunch buffet that includes vegan french toast, tofu scramble and sweet potato hash is pretty amazing.

Last week, I Instagramed my budget buys of metallic denim, each under $27. I’ve been on the lookout for a great pair of metallic denim this season. I happened to be in Target the other day, and spotted these fabulous shimmery black skinnies. The sparkling sheen gives off a coated denim look. These skinny jeans are so comfortable, I could sleep in them. Did I mention they’re under $23? Major fab find.
