First of all, we need to talk about the fact that it’s NATIONAL COOKIE DAY. Omg. Let’s all bake these please.

I mean really. You know they’re life changing, right?

K see you after your cookie coma.

Nutella-Stuffed Brown Butter + Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies from

Before we dive in to chocolate chip cookie love, I want to share a few things. First of all, I’m done with my clean eating challenge from November. Ummm I traveled about 9 days last month and didn’t really stick to the plan as well as I thought I would. But for the most part, it really did help me feel great by eating less sugar and saying no to dessert and tortilla chips. But now it’s my birthday month so cookies are gonna be crushed.

Hmmm what else? 

-I took last week off working out and didn’t feel bad about it for a second.

-I made a skinny version of pumpkin pie that I am IN LOVE with. Just needs a little more perfecting. Pumpkin pie is good in December too, right?

-I am in love with Justin Bieber’s new album. I love him. I am a Belieber. And my assistant hates me for it.

-I’m still suffering from a crazy cough. So, I’m taking it slow and sipping lots of herbal teas.


Alright onto my favorites from this past week:
