Back to Wayback (Too Many Times)

Hey y’all. I’m still spending some quality time at the beach and the pool down on Hilton Head Island. If you’ve read about some of my vacations prior to this one, you know that Hilton Head is a frequent travel destination. When I was younger, our first meal on the island was always Fuddruckers, a…

Back to School Safety

With the second week in August coming to an end, the school year is quickly approaching for all of us, or may have even started. Currently, the hottest topic in the allergy world is how to best prepare for going back to school. From an adult-with-allergies perspective, the change from internship preparedness to back-to-campus-ready doesn’t…

Back to the Beach

My internship finished up last week, so I felt it fitting to head back to the beach before school starts… a little rest and relaxation, the calm before the storm. I brought a few friends with me and it’s the first time I’ve been to Hilton Head without my family! It brings a new perspective…

Southwest Rings in My Weekend

I flew Southwest Airlines to Dallas, Texas this past weekend for a work conference. I used this airline in January when I flew to Chicago and didn’t have any issues because it is such a quick flight. I try to seek out Southwest Airlines flights because they are fairly priced and they have a huge…

Chips Ahoy! Reflection

I think I’ve dreaded talking about Chips Ahoy!, their product packaging and Alexi Stafford because I didn’t really know how to comprehend my thoughts and feelings. For those of you not aware of what happened, just a few weeks ago, a 15 year old girl ate a Chips Ahoy! cookie at a friend’s house that…

Burger Week = Allergy Safe!

In Cincinnati, this past week was dubbed Cincinnati Burger Week. Basically, tons of partner restaurants all over the city select one of their burgers to sell for $5. I love it because I can try new restaurants at an easy price. This is the second year I’ve participated and there was no disappointment. I obviously…

New Blog, Who Dis?

Long time, no see! Did you miss me? Check it out, my blog got a new look! I’m so lucky to have friends and family with creative ideas and a tech pro boyfriend to help me out. Since it has been almost ONE YEAR of blogging, I felt like it was time for a brief…

Nut Free (& GF!) For the Win

PSA! New to Cincinnati is a gluten and nut free bakery… I know. Not a single thing is made with nuts OR gluten, and somehow it’s still a bakery. Enter, Cherbourg Cyprus. My cousin, who is gluten allergic, tried it out first a few weeks ago and came back highly recommending it. I made my…

Doscher’s Candy Canes

Since recently winning the Doscher’s sea salt caramel candy cane contest last week, my mom had mentioned the idea of RSVPing for a tour of the Doscher’s factory. I was fortunate to have both July 4 and July 5 off for work and it seemed like the perfect chance to do so. My mom ended…

Weekends Are Sweet

I hope your Monday is off to a sweet start! I wanted to boast a little bit about the small victories I had this weekend in regards to the most challenging part of allergies… dessert. For those of you who don’t know, I have a major obsession with contests. I’m constantly tagging my sister and…
