No Dough Pizza

Pizza, to me, is essential in life/considered a food group. In the summertime, my family and I (fine- just my mom) make homemade pizzas every Sunday and it is my favorite part of the summer. Paired with a glass of Merlot or Malbec, that my friends, is my definition of bliss. 

As much as I would love to eat Pizza everyday, I am not one of those girls that can eat whatever she wants and not feel/see the consequences. When I saw all the hype surrounding Cauliflower Pizza, I decided I HAD to try it out!

-2 heads of cauliflower
-A few dahes of Oregano
-1 few dashes of Parmesan Cheese
-Slices of Cheese ( I used mozzarella) 
-1 cup of Tomato Sauce ( I made fresh tomato sauce!)
-2 Eggs
-1 tablespoon of Quinoa Flour
-2 Tomatoes
-Cut up Chorizio
-1/4 of an Onion
-1 tablespoon of Garlic Powder
-A few dashes of Salt & Pepper
-1 tablespoon of Chia Seeds

*You can use any toppings you want, I just decided on Tomatoes, Cheese and Chorizio


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Chop up your cauliflower into small pieces and place it in a blender! I used a magic bullet so had to do little bits at a time. I also added a few drops of water to get things moving. Blend until it is pureed. 
3. Place the pureed cauliflower mixture onto a plate and place paper towels over it to get rid of the excess water from the cauliflower. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART! ( I went through a lot of paper towels!)
4. Let the cauliflower sit with the paper towels over it for about a half hour
5. Discard any left over cauliflower liquid by turning the plate upside down with the paper towel on top of it
6. Move the purree mix into a large bowl, add the eggs, a few dashes of oregano, salt and pepper, garlic powder, some Parmesan  the Quinoa flour and the Chia seeds ( the Chia seeds are necessary but I found that they helped to thicken the dough) 
7. Mix together until it is blended in
8. Spread the “dough” into either 1 large pizza shape or 2 small pizza rounds on a lightly greased (coconut oil) pizza pan 
9. Do not spread the  “dough” too thin as the moisture will cause it the crack. 
10. Put in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Once you see the top turning a bit of a golden colour, you can take it out!
11. Remove the crust from the oven and let it sit for about 10 minutes. 
12. Add all of your favourite toppings! In my case, tomatoes, mozzarella, chorizio!
13. Place the pizzas back into the oven for another 15 minutes! During the last few minutes, change your oven settings to BROIL to make sure the top is thoroughly cooked. 
14. EAT UP!!!!

LA to San Fran

If I had to pick my favourite drive in the entire world, it would be this one. I didn't think it was possible to fall more in love with California but then we took a road trip from Los Angeles all the way to San Francisco stopping in Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Big Sur, Carmel, and Santa Cruz. I fell head over heels in love and if anyone is dabbling with the idea of doing this drive- I could literally not recommend it enough!

Big Sur alone is a magical place that fills you with serenity and peace. It's no surprise that many artists escape here to get their creative juices flowing! Other favourite stops along the way included The Madonna Inn (weirdest and best place ever- I felt like I was trapped in a 60's horror film but in a good way), Julie Prrfeer bridge and the Santa Cruz boardwalk.

Stork & Babe Sweater

Sweater: Stork & Babe, Sweater: Phillip Lim x Target, Necklace: Speech, Pants: Zara, Shoes: Michael Kors

Oh hi! Just some photos of me wearing the WORLD'S most comfortable sweater. Also known as the sweater that I will be wearing around my house, to work, to grab groceries in, and to have fun in!

I recently got this item from Stork and Babe, a new collection launched from Thyme Maternity! While I am NOT pregnant (let's be clear), I went to a launch for the new collection a few weeks back and fell in love with so many of the items. So great for fashion forward woman who are expecting (very Rag and Bone meets Alexander Wang) but also great for those not expecting that just want to eat a lot ( Thanksgiving is coming up- just saying). 

Below are a few snaps from the beautiful event courtesy of Light X Heavy

Tumeric Facemask

I had a life changing experience with a facialist and dermatologist in LA. Skin people in LA are either pro-botox and injections or are pro "you can cure your skin with mud from the sacred earth". Thankfully,  Terri Lawton, who I saw in LA, was all about the natural way to heal and help the skin. 

After my time with her (I still get some products from her and joke that she's my homegirl to friends), I turned to herb and oil concoctions . This mask is one of them. 

The powerful base of this mask is Tumeric which has over 3892 benefits and is the most healing herb to date (actually). Not only does it prevent cancer but it helps with inflammation (zits), redness, and promotes anti aging. Indian woman make this type of mask before their wedding day to make their skin GLOWS!


-1/2 cup of Yogurt (any type of yogurt is fine, I used Greek)
-1 teaspoon of coconut oil
-1 tablespoon of flour (again- any flour is fine..I used Quinoa)
-1 1/2 tablespoons of Tumeric.


1. Get all of your ingredients out and measure accordingly. 
2. Mix them all together in a small bowl
3. Place in the fridge for 20 minutes (having the product cold is so key and feels AMAZING)
4. Lather on the face and leave on for 20 minutes. 
5. Add Cucumbers for the full facial affect

Note: Tumeric STAINS! Make sure to be very careful with it while washing it off. My Ryan Gosling dishtowel now has a yellow mark on Ryan's chest. Thank god Ryan looks good with anything on him. 

Sober September

Saturday Sun

Skirt: Target, Jacket: Forever 21, Shirt: Random store on Melrose Avenue, Necklace. Vintage store in San Fran, Boots: Target

I had a busy jam packed weekend filled with work, blog stuff, working out, eating chocolate cake, attending a bridal shower, feeling confused on whether it was fall or winter and stalking the Phillim Lim for Target collection. All in all a pretty successful weekend but like always, way too short.

I got my hands on a few cute items from Phillim Lim xTarget.... one of them being the black mini satchel!!! Not even a humble brag...just a brag.
