Ok, so a bunch of you guys know that I have a side business called Blog-Doo with my GF, Erica.

( If you’re like, “huh?? WTF are you talking about?” I’ll sum it up: it’s a blog design company for up & coming bloggers or hottie bloggers who want to re-vamp their current site. More here ).

And lately, we’ve been working on a lil somethin’, somethin’.

AKA busting ass to bring you a new & improved site.

✚ ✚ ✚ THE BLOG-DOO TRIBE IS GROWING ✚ ✚ ✚

▷▷ Katie, blogger at The Fashion Bite: our Head of Communications & total web design guru. She’s basically a badass bitch who makes sure the day-to-day runs super smooth at BD HQ. She makes our lives ten times easier.

▷▷ Natalie, blogger at Halfway to Harmony: our latest addition & a serious graphic design prodigy. She handles all the artistic aspects of the company, has creative energy that won’t stop, & her logos/mood-board designs are literally off the charts amazing.

Plus we utilize Zack from Typical Culture for a lil video & GIF work and my amazing little sister, Mimi, works BTS ( she helps me stay organized…& sane! ).

& naturally, Pixy, my chihuahua works the hardest. Her job entails treats, sun bathing, & “overseeing” e-mails.

Dream team, right?!

Anyway (!!):

You know when you literally can’t stop eating something?

For some reason it’s just all you want?

And like, every single meal you crave that certain something.

Ya well that was me this weekend— basically I had a major peach moment.

Seriously though, I swear after this weekend I might turn into a damn peach.

( Side: if you’re in CA. seriously RUN to local supermarket; they’re perfectly perfect right now ( is anyone with me? ) ).

Anyway I used plump, summer peaches to make peachy breakfasts/lunches/dinners. Think: oatmeal with mashed peaches mixed with cinnamon/honey/chia seeds, grilled peaches with Gruyere cheese, a peach arugula, radish, & almond salad, peach popsicles, and salmon with a side of sliced peaches.

Hell, I even made TSC DIY peach jam 5 second jam.

& I may or may not have forced Michael to drive to Whole Foods ( twice ) for peaches.

What gives?!

Maybe I’m pregnant.

HA! I kid, I kid.

What’s your latest craving?
