12 Must Have Travel Carry On Essentials


I’m headed back out on the road next week and am already in packing mode. I like to make sure that I’m completely covered a few days before leaving, just in case I need to make a last minute Amazon Prime order! Since I fly a few times a month, I’ve gotten it down to a science. I have a few things that I always carry in my carry on bag – which doubles as a bus bag. My bag got lost the last time I traveled, so I was glad that I had a few key things in my carry on to hold me over. I wanted to share a few of my travel essentials that will help you survive a flight, layovers & long travel! Continue Reading

Single Serving Rice Krispies

Rice Krispies treats are kind of a tradition in my family. I feel like growing up, they’re kind of a staple. Probably because they’re super easy & cheap to make. And rarely do kids complain about them. Making a full batch isn’t necessarily hard or time consuming, but it leaves you a ton of dessert. This recipe is perfect for a quick treat or a way to use that last cup of cereal left in the box.  Continue Reading

20 Fun Things to Do Alone

Romper: Show Me Your Mumu Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Booties: Jeffrey Campbell

I have no problem owning up to my introverted-ness. It’s not that I don’t like being with other people, but for the most part I spend a lot of time on my own. My boyfriend travels for a good chunk of the year and when he’s gone, I really do enjoy finding ways to have quality “me time”. Every second of every day doesn’t need to be jam packed with activities and other people. Spending solo time is a great way to recharge your batteries and just get comfortable in your own skin. So get over your FOMO (fear of missing out) and take yourself out on a hot date – or solo hang sesh. Whether it’s an adventure, relaxing date or indulgent treat, here are 20 of my favorite dates to take myself on.

I’m back guys! Sorry I haven’t posted in the last week. I was traveling & on the road with the world’s worst internet access. Luckily, I stocked up on tons of ideas and pictures for posts! Whenever I go visit my boyfriend, I fly into the city we’re meeting at the night before. Not only because I want to see new cities, but just in case there is a flight delay. I don’t want to miss a flight and not get to him before he leaves for the next city. This time I flew into Charlotte, North Carolina. Just a few miles away from my destination: Carolina Rebellion in Concord. Continue Reading

Summer Skincare Guide

Erin Aschow Revenge Bakery Skincare Erin Aschow Revenge Bakery Skincare Tips Trophy Skinc at home Microdermabrasion Kit Erin Aschow Skincare Routine I get a lot of questions about my skincare routine, so I thought I’d start by sharing a few of my favorite products and tips. I’d like to preface this post with the fact that I DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT have perfect skin. It’s a struggle, I have adult acne, scars, hyper pigmentation & some fine lines. It’s the real world people! I haven’t jumped into the world of high tech lasers, botox or fillers. Not to say I have anything against them or would rule them out completely, but my goal is to wait as long as possible. I think there’s something to be said about aging gracefully. I’m not even 30 yet! Continue Reading

New Music: Metal Monday Playlist

New Spotify Playlist by Erin Aschow of Revenge Bakery

I’ve gotten a ton of requests lately for more Spotify playlists. So why not celebrate Monday with some Metal! I grew up in a metal home – meaning my family broke me into the world of angry music at a young age. I’m still pretty die hard when it comes to all things heavy rock, metal & alternative music. I love listening to metal when I’m working out, driving or sitting at the computer. Definitely helps me get in the zone! Continue Reading
