Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seeds have been a popular superfood for over a year, but not until recently have I actually tried them. I was out grabbing lunch one day when I impulsively decided to give vanilla chia pudding a try and was pleasantly surprised by how good it tasted. The one I had was a little unhealthy, but I have since made this one at home that is just as good and much healthier. It works great for breakfast or a snack and is even better when topped with fruit.

Dress: Target, Clutch: Gap, Shoes: Report, Watch: Michele
Lately, I have been all about simple summer dresses as they are easy to dress up or down and are my preferred choice to manage the summer heat. They truly are a staple in my summer wardrobe. This one is a current favorite with its flowy bottom, great fit, and easy style. I find myself constantly throwing it on an pairing it with flats or heels. It’s currently on sale (such a good price!), so I recommend snatching it up before it’s gone!

Vanilla Bourbon Ice Cream Sandwiches

With the Fourth of July only days away, I thought it appropriate to share this patriotic treat. When I think of summer sweets, I always think of ice cream as it is perfect for cooling you down on a hot summer day. After a recent sweet craving, I made these ice cream sandwiches and swapped out regular vanilla ice cream for this vanilla bourbon one. To make them even more fun, I used a star shape cookie cutter to create a not so normal ice cream sandwich shape. While I loved the vanilla bourbon pairing, I am already planning to make them again with this peanut butter ice cream. Whichever flavor you choose, they are the perfect treat for any Fourth of July get-together.
