I’m all about the comfy culottes and wide leg pants over the summer 🌞

One of the easiest things to make on a busy weeknight is Cacio E Pepe. I used fresh Bucatini and Parmesan from @milkandeggscom and already had the rest of the ingredients in my pantry. I love the feeling when I've avoided going to the grocery store during the week.
.
Ingredients
-4 tablespoons (60ml) extra-virgin olive oil, divided
-Coarsely ground black pepper
-Kosher salt
-12 oz Domenico's Fresh Pasta Bucatini @milkandeggscom
-2 tablespoons (30g) unsalted butter
-2 ounces Organic Valley Parmesan Shredded Cheese @milkandeggscom .
1.Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil and about a teaspoon of black pepper in a medium skillet over medium-low heat until ingredients are fragrant and pepper is barely starting to sizzle, about 1 minute. Set aside.
.
2. Cook bucatini according to package instructions. Season with a small pinch of salt. Transfer 2 to 3 tablespoons of pasta cooking water to the skillet with the olive oil/pepper mixture. Stir in butter. Using tongs, lift bucatini and transfer it to the oil/butter mixture.
3.
Add cheese and remaining tablespoon olive oil to the skillet and stir with a fork until cheese is completely melted. Add a few more tablespoons of pasta water to the skillet to adjust consistency, reheating as necessary until the sauce is creamy and coats each strand of spaghetti. Season to taste with salt and more black pepper. Serve immediately, passing extra grated cheese and black pepper at the table.

Happy weeknight dinners 🙂

Sorry I haven’t been posting much content, feels like I’ve been MIA lately. Now that I’ve been making content for about a year, wow I’ve realized, this is hard work! Especially for those of us out there with the full time jobs, some may have kids, etc. It is real talent to be able to juggle it all.
Work has been ramping up and find it hard to divide time while getting enough sleep while meeting all the blogging deadlines + shooting weddings on the side. How have u guys been doing with your side projects? How do you make time?

Wish I was spending more time by the poolside 💦

🇺🇸HAPPY 4th of JULY!🇺🇸
Which also happens to be my birthday! I turned 30 this year which I think is quite crazy. People have been asking me how I feel about turning 30 and I have to say...I feel pretty fucking great! My confidence has grown a lot in my late 20s and I also gave myself this time to get to know me better. I have a pretty great job and I’ve been blessed to be surrounded by some amazing people.
.
I’m getting married to my best friend next year and have the cutest fucking fur baby to call our own. 20yo me would never have imagined feeling this way as a 30yo!
.
BONUS swipe ➡️ to check out the cute set up Armen orchestrated with my friends when we went camping this past weekend.

We are just a tiny little speck on this planet. Exploring more nature is on my mind a lot this year and I hope I can accomplish some of the bucket list I have set out.
I’m heading out into Mono County again tmr to explore a different part of the Sierras where there are hot springs so I’m quite excited to explore it!

Happy 9 years with this guy. ❤️❤️ The guy behind behind the camera, even though he doesn’t consider himself a photographer I think he’s taken some darn good pics don’t you?!
I’ve come to realize that we as a couple don’t have too many pictures together. I’m usually the person behind the camera and I never think of getting pictures of us! That’s obviously got to change and will change :)
This photo was taken right after I said YES! 💍 in Bagan, Myanmar last year.

Dress @lulus #lovelulus

Omg i totally forgot to post this yesterday haha. I am in such a good mood ☺️ I got lasik done on Thursday and today I am seeing 20/20. It literally seems like it happened in a flash (and it sorta did) I spent a little less than 15mins in the OR and then I was out and headed home.
.
Beginning of this year i had my regular check up with my eye doctor. And I casually asked her what her thoughts were on lasik. She straight up told me I should get it this year if I’m even thinking about it. I’m turning 30 this year and my vision is only going to get worse over time. But if I got lasik now, 10 years down the line I will be thanking myself! That really resonated with me and so here I am 6 months later 💥
.
You can follow my Lasik journey in my stories & highlights! Also I got my Lasik done by Dr. Wallace from LA SIGHT. They have 5 stars on yelp ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
