My good friend, Nathan, recommended The Green Nature Cafe to me and I couldn’t believe I hadn’t heard of it. This restaurant is the only one of its kind in the area (that I know of) in that they serve all vegetarian and vegan food and mostly raw at that. This is [...]
I was pretty sure I would love Meadowlark because I have heard nothing but glowing praise about this restaurant for as long as I can remember. I didn’t really know anything in particular about the restaurant, other than it is affiliated with Wheat Penny Oven & [...]
One ridiculously cold day I had a choice to make – walk to De’Lish Cafe or take advantage of the very convenient (if sorta pricey) parking lot right next to it. I decided to make the drive but my sister and my friend, Nathan, chose to walk instead. I think this proves [...]
I wrote a neat article recently for Dayton Local about Dub Pub! To read it click here.
One Sunday, my sister, her friend John, my husband, and I all decided to eat dinner at Dublin Pub because it’s been too long since we’ve had a meal there.
Before seeing The Godfather II at the Michelob Ultra Cool Film Series at the Victoria Theatre, Beth and Kayleigh decided to go out to dinner (yes, for Beth’s birthday. Don’t worry, she already knows it’s excessive). I decided to tag along and they didn’t stop [...]
As a huge fan of Belmont Party Supply, I was excited to hear that they would be opening a sandwich shop next door. Stackers has a full menu of yummy sandwiches and wraps and I was happy to see that their sides (although deep fried) are at least fried in oil that [...]
Well, another Heedfest has come and gone and I can say that after the 24 Day Challenge from Advocare, I lost 10 pounds! I’m so happy with the results and recommend Advocare to anyone wanting to start a healthier lifestyle with a kick start in [...]
I really want to learn Spanish but I also really don’t want to spend time or money doing so (unrealistic desires are one of my more annoying qualities). So on a recent trip to the library, I was delighted to find Lonely Planet’s Spanish Phrasebook & Dictionary - this tiny tome packs in a ton of [...]
There is nothing that says “we are homeowners in Ohio” quite like a cookout. My husband has been crazy for a grill since the weather turned a few weeks ago. Saturday, on the way home from an appointment, I felt him turning the car towards North Dixie Hardware unexpectedly. Once there we found [...]
Right now my favorite brunch place is Olive, an Urban Dive for their concise and flavorful menu, byob policy, and insistence that local is always best.
I recently tried Olive for dinner and loved it! I ordered the chickpea – brussels sprout soup followed by tofu-veggie kabobs with gluten-free cookies [...]
Welcome!I love Dayton, I've lived here for all of my 26 years and don't plan on settling anywhere else. I started this blog as a way to showcase the best of Dayton (as seen through my perspective) and also to share some of the things that occupy space in my mind, namely beauty, home decor, quotes, and various aspects of my life.
