One of My Favorite Shops in Paris

Sézane is hands-down one of my favorite shops to pop into in Paris! If you were following along on Instagram or Snapchat during my European adventure this past fall, you probably saw me pop in a few times during my stay in Paris. It was less than a five minute walk from my apartment… Can you blame me?! The store, or The Apartment as they call it, is unbelievably beautiful and functions like more of a lifestyle store… You can try on clothes and shoes for size, but they’ll be shipped to your door. Most of the accessories, home decor, and beauty favorites can be purchased and taken with you right then!

Baked Buffalo Chicken Meatball Recipe

It’s kind of bizarre, but I crave buffalo sauce all the time. All. The. Time! Buffalo-style baked cauliflower is usually what I opt for to curb my cravings in a somewhat healthy way. Baked turkey meatballs are always one of my go-to recipes for weeknight dinners. I tend to make a batch at the beginning of the week and heat a few up with a large serving of veggies for dinner. But when my grocery store was out of ground turkey a few weeks ago, I bought ground chicken instead… *lightbulb moment* I decided to wing it (no pun intended) when I was making my weekly meatballs and make them spicy instead!
