Vegan Chickpea Salad Sandwich

7/21/2014

I don’t eat fish or seafood but I LOVE tuna salad…  Go figure?  I’m strange… So when searching for picnic sandwich alternatives I came across some recipes on Pinterest for a vegan version of tuna salad.  A little weary at first – a chickpea sandwich?  I told my mind to hush, gave it a whirl and bah-dah-dah-dah-dah!  It was delicious.  I even whipped it up one afternoon for the Mr and fed it to him without an explanation of what it was (especially leaving out the word VEGAN) and he asked for seconds.  #win

You can serve it on whole grain bread, in wraps, on a salad or even wrapped in lettuce.  It’s refreshing and satisfying and perfect to pack up for a picnic – especially because there’s no dairy to worry about.  I’ve listed a few things as ‘optional’ because this is one of those recipes that’s great super simple but also lovely amped up by punchy flavors like dill pickle and smoked paprika, but it’s totally your call.

Proceeds from the sale of this shoe will be going to support ONEXONE’s effort in Haiti and since there’s only 360 pairs and they’re being exclusively sold at the Block Party, you’ll want to be one of the first to join us tomorrow.

With complimentary food provided by Rose City Kitchen, drinks by Absolut Elyx and Smartwater and music by DJ Lissa Monet, this is a party you won’t want to miss!

Girl Code: 5 Friendship Rules That Should Never Be Broken

7/17/2014

Sex & The City, Girlfriends and Keeping Up With The Kardashians, regardless if you are a fan or not, you can’t deny how amazing it is to watch women share an unbreakable bond like no other. But hey, that’s television for you. We know that this ride-or-die chick type ish is not exactly the reality for some women. The older I get, the more I realize how hard it is to establish true friendships so the babes I do have within my circle I cherish more than anything in this world.

:: If you are in good company then you already have it better than most people ::

I’m also very fortunate enough to have a bestie whom I’ve known since Kindergarten. In our twenty plus years of friendship we have never experienced any drama what-so-ever.

:: Like, ever ::

Our secret formula to a long-lasting bond is respect, love and loyalty. Through and through these 3 key elements are what our foundation is made of. I cannot picture life without her but please believe if she or any of my friends crossed the line, I wouldn’t think twice to exit the relationship. You see, for me, I hold my friends to a high standard because the term “friendship” is not one I take lightly. True friendship requires the effort of both individuals and if I choose to invest time, heart and energy into you, you better not take it for granted. The same rule applies to me as well. It’s a two-way street and I think many relationships fail because one person forgets.

We’ve all had friendships crumble right before our eyes. You think you really know someone until an incident happens and in that moment, just like that, many years of friendship becomes a distant memory. Over time I’ve taken mental notes of the girl code so that I can avoid drama all together. These 5 rules should never be broken.

:: Like, ever ::

Keep these in the forefront of your mind and think twice before you cross the line because for every action there is a reaction and you don’t want to be the reason why another woman is left broken.

CODE #1: Be the type of friend you’d like to have
