Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads

Sunday, July 30, 2017

Several months ago I came across these beautiful sculptures at Princeton University. I had no idea what the sculptures meant at the time but was immediately drawn to their life-like depictions. When I returned home I learned that they are Zodiac sculptures that were in front of the Princeton University Museum of Art. The sculptures are designed by Ai Weiwei who drew inspiration from the original sculptor, Giuseppe Castiglione. Castiglione's sculptures were designed in the mid 18th century and looted when France and Britain invaded China. To read more about the sculptures visit this website

I don't believe the sculptures are still at the University but they are on a world tour so you may be able to catch them in another location!

Old Navy Sandals

Sunday, July 23, 2017

Old Navy is a hidden gem for heeled sandals. At first I was hesitant to buy shoes from Old Navy, and I did pay the price for certain types of shoes they sell. However, their heeled sandals are great and hold up well. The black gladiator pair featured above are my go to fancy sandals for the summer. I don't typically wear a heel, however, the block heel on their sandals is incredibly comfortable. And, like all things at Old Navy, the price of their sandals cannot be beat. 

Pro Tip: Do not buy their flat sandals. Those are the ones I regret purchasing. They fall apart after one or two wears!

Follow Your Heart

Monday, July 17, 2017

I have found the best dairy-free cheese. I have never been a fan of cheese substitutes- it's the one thing I've truly missed since going dairy-free. However, when I attended the vegan street fair a few weeks back I had the best vegan cheese while eating Screamers Pizza. I messaged the pizzeria on Instagram to find out where their cheese was from and they pointed me in the direction of Follow Your Heart! Since then, I have made mac and cheese with Follow Your Heart Mozzarella and American Style Slices every week. Even the hubby likes the taste. 

Pro tip- Follow Your Heart's cheddar cheese is not good. Definitely go for the American Style Slices instead. 

I cannot tell you how happy I am to eat mac and cheese again. It has been a great development in my dairy-free dietary journey.

By The Way Bakery

Sunday, July 9, 2017

A favorite dairy-free bakery of mine is By The Way Bakery on the Upper West Side. Everything in the store is dairy-free, gluten-free and kosher. If you have a food allergy it's basically heaven. All the baked goods from the bakery are delicious. I love that they sell cakes by the slice. Also, Whole Foods in Columbus Circle sells their goodies in case you can't make it uptown to visit the actual store. 

My dreams tonight will now be filled with cake slices and muffins- yum.
