By: Bella Preneta A Mason Jar salad is such a great idea. I’ve found them so easy to prepare ahead of time to save time in the morning. My mom and I prep all of the ingredients we need for the week on Sunday so we can just put them in the jar each morning.

By: Bella Preneta For the past few weeks, a few friends and I have been collecting places we’ve wanted to eat in New York City and this week we finally had time to go!

Thanksgiving has come and gone and it’s now Christmastime! (At least for me). On the Sunday before Thanksgiving, I hosted 10 friends and had a “Friendsgiving.” Usually, on the actual day of Thanksgiving, we are with our family and extended family, so this was a fun way to get together and celebrate as friends.
