  • Happiest in the kitchen 🤗 Since I was a kid, I’ve always loved spending time cooking and baking (and stealing bites while prepping, too!). My least favorite part? Figuring out what to make and creating a grocery list. That’s where @realhomechef has been a lifesaver for me! Since we’ve been using it regularly this year, I’m able to enjoy my time in the kitchen again and avoid the dreaded, “what do you want for dinner this week?” conversation. Every meal we’ve made is delicious and I’ve learned some new skills since utilizing their recipes! • If you’ve wanted to try it, you can use the link in my bio to order. Code LAURENB80 gets you $20 off your first 4 boxes, too 🙌🏻 #ad #hookedonhomechef

  • If you ask me, leopard is most definitely a neutral 👌🏻 Continuing to find ways to bring some fall colors and patterns into my wardrobe while still dressing appropriately for the weather.
