White Dress Best

Happy Summer! In Des Moines it went straight from snow to 100 degrees outside. We never got any good weather, but we are dealing with it! 

When it comes to summer I love a good white dress. It is hands down my favorite look (well for the whole year too). I love how crisp and airy it looks. Here are my favorite looks for this summer.

Home Chef Review

I was target marketed so hard on this, I kept hearing about groceries sent to your door and I was just getting into the whole being an adult and making menu thing. I was actually pretty good at it, and my goal was to start making every single meal and all my snacks. I wanted to get to the point where I was eating no processed foods. 

This was going great until I started traveling all the time. I noticed when I started traveling all the time food became something I barely thought about and I started spending a ton of money on eating out or just eating a ton of unhealthy food. I noticed that my wallet was not exactly happy. a) eating out is expensive b) when you go out of town a lot you have food but you have to end up throwing it away because you have too much/ it spoils.

So I noticed home chef, and tried it a couple of times. Due to UPS issues (UPS in des moines is not exactly 10/10) but once I got on a regular schedule, home chef started working a lot better.

Home Chef allows me to not have to think about meal planning or grocery shopping. I mean the grocery store I love, just getting there and back is 30 minutes. Home Chef eliminates that trip, I do not have to think about what I am going to eat. 

At first I started getting it only when I was out of town, now I am to the point where I get it pretty much every week. This also helps me stay on budget because I am not impulse buying anything because at the grocery store I do that all the time. 

As for the meals, they are pretty darn good too. You do not have to have 7,000 spices in your pantry to have a yummy meal because they give you everything you need for your meal. I do not believe they do a gluten free option ( I have a super weak stomach so I live a gluten free life) However, If you are already gluten free you can easily substitute for a gluten free option.
