Eat : Homemade Salsa

December 16, 2015
Homemade Salsa 2

If you were to ask my best friends what the top 5 things about me are, one of those top five would be that I love Mexican food and the other one of those top five would be that I’m obsessed with chips and salsa. (So yes, two out of five things involve food.) Throughout my life I’ve been known to not only make chips and salsa an actual meal, but have eaten it for breakfast on multiple occasions. That whole…

Friday Love.

August 21, 2015

This post today is dedicated to all of the bloggers out there… (queue stadium-style echo & 80s pop song). No but seriously, this one today is for all of you! By now you have most likely seen posts pertaining to Adproval (and why they rock) and I wanted to chime in, as well as share my story and why I made the (easy) decision to make the switch to Adproval. Plus? I’ve got one fabulous giveaway to share with you!…

My Style: Accessories with JORD

August 12, 2015

Do you all remember when I stated that Ember Grey would *never be a fashion blog? Mainly because I do most of my clothes shopping at places like Marshall’s and Target and could live in a gray tshirt and jeans forever? And now you’re thinking I’m coming back today saying, *’Never say never!’ and that I’m going to start posting fashion posts now?! Yeah?! Well, no. While I still wouldn’t consider myself super fashionable, in the clothing department at least, I do…

EG Interviews: Tinker Coffee (A, very caffeinated, Grateful Heart)

June 22, 2015

When we first moved to Nashville, one of the things I was mostly excited about was the fact that on just about every corner, you can find a café or coffee shop. And these are REAL coffee shops, you know what I mean? Like, the baristas were straight up BORN to do what they do. They have hipster beards and man buns and ask you all of these coffee-related questions when you order… which brings me to my next point:…

My Style: Skincare, Part One

June 4, 2015

We gals do a lot of things in the name of “beauty,” don’t we? I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that, honestly. For some of us it’s makeup, or an extreme love for accessories, clothing, hair care, shoes, etc. etc. etc. – the list goes on and on. For me though? It’s skincare. I do love makeup but more times than not I choose to sport the “fresh face,” going mostly makeup free, especially on weekdays. Most mornings I…

And not just any beauty products – we’re talking high-end, best of the best beauty products.

My Style: Daytime Face

January 20, 2015

If I had to choose my daytime makeup celebrity inspiration (because that’s a thing, right?!), it would be Julianne Hough. I love the “fresh face with a pop” look during the day and prefer a minimal/light eye, light blush, and a bright lip. So my daytime makeup routine typically looks like this: under eye concealer, mascara, blush, and bright lipstick.  I wouldn’t necessarily consider myself ‘adventurous’ when it comes to makeup, in that I use the same items each time,…

My Style: Eyeglasses

January 13, 2015

Some of you may have noticed something different about me in last week’s post. The truth is, I have needed to wear eyeglasses for quite some time now. Like, how about since high school? I actually did have glasses (and wore them), until they broke my freshman year of college and I wasn’t about to wear them in public, what with only one “arm”, the correct term being: temple. (Alright, so maybe I did try to secretly wear them while on…

The recap of the Journey concert that almost was

July 15, 2014

You all were so super sweet and fun with your Instagram and email comments on Saturday as I was getting ready to go jam out to one of my beloved 80s bands: Journey.  As I was getting ready, I listened to my 80s station on Pandora, and tried to get as 80s-i-fied (?) as I possibly could, without looking too… “Babysitters Club” – does that make sense? I finally settled on a side ponytail (but not obnoxious, you know?) with…

Sky Zone: Time to Fly (+ a giveaway!)

July 10, 2014

So basically, X and I went flying on Tuesday. I mean, it was the closest thing to flying that I’ve ever done. I’m talkin’ about SKY ZONE, all. Sky Zone is an indoor trampoline park that offers a huge space with nothing but jumping room and lots of options and programs to get your jump on. Christian and I made the short drive to Sky Zone Elmhurst for a morning of jumping fun, which also quickly turned into the best workout ever. (We are…
