Welcome to my new favorite mobile garden in the city, Daisy Jane’s Flower Truck. I love to spotlight women business owners and those making a difference in our tri-state and beyond, and just had to tell my readers about this perfectly curated flower truck popping up all over the city. I found Daisy’s Flower Truck on instagram, and instantaneously fell in love with the business, the flowers, the truck, and I knew our city house needed a bit of floral accompaniment for Spring. When you visit Daisy Jane’s Flower Truck you’ll have the opportunity to pick out your own flowers no matter what variation and of course converse with the owner Megan Moore, who is literally the nicest woman you will ever meet. I found the Daisy Jane’s flower truck nestled in Fountain Square in Downtown Cincinnati, and with concrete everywhere a bit of green in the midst of the city chaos is all I wanted for the morning; that and a cup of coffee. If you’re not feeling especially creative that day, the owner can gladly and artistically hand pick each bloom, so that you leave with a stupendous and unique bouquet for you or a loved one. Wanting to know where you can find the Daisy Jane Flower Truck?
Monday: 8AM-12PM at Coffee Emporium on Central Parkway in OTR
Tuesday: 11AM-1:30PM “Market on the Square” on Fountain Square (starting April 2)
Thursday: 3-8PM Alley Boutique in Downtown Loveland
Friday: 9AM-1PM Harvest Market in Old Milford
Saturday & Sunday: TBA on social media –

Welcome to Lil’s Bagels, located on 308 Greenup Street in Covington, Ky. This Spring and Summer make sure to head to their walk up window and either dine outside on their patio or get their exceptional hand rolled, boiled, bagel, made with tradition and CHUTZPAH and sandwiches to go. I plan on doing a lot of hiking this Spring and Summer, so hearty, green, local, and unique eats wrapped and ready to go are what I am looking for. I am in love with The Chixa, a locally made 16 Brick’s Ciabatta Roll covered in Lil’s Pesto Chicken Salad, Homemade Kraut Slaw, Gribenes, and Pepper Jelly. We also had to get the PEC (Pastrami, Egg, & Cheese) Local Organic Egg, Lil’s House Smoked Pastrami Bacon, & Munster Cheese on a fresh Allez Challah Roll or 16 Brick’s Rye Bread with of course a side of Hen and Woods Salt and Vinegar Chips. Readers, you will most definitely want to stop here before a picnic, for coffee, or to dine outside and relax in-between bites.
Peace + Love,
308 Greenup St.

I love a good smoothie, especially when trying to boost the immune system during these months where allergies seem to rule the Ohio Valley. Its Even better when these smoothies fight off sneezes but also have beauty benefits and great taste. There is also something nice about getting up a little earlier in the morning to actually take care of yourself and have a bit of down time, even if its to the sound of a blender in between my NPR listening sessions. Below are 8 of my favorite go -to beauty smoothies. I usually drink and make smoothies in the morning. However, sometimes I will whip up a smoothie the night before and have a bit as a healthy midnight snack;or save it for the morning. It’s a lot easier than you think to combine fruits and veggies into your daily dietary routine. I also have found that by creating your own smoothies at home, you will find that your intake of sugar will be less compared to some packaged smoothies that are available in stores. It’s a lot easier to grab smoothies on the go but make sure to check the label for sugars and extra nonsense your body doesn’t need. So, while I am on the hunt for the best packaged smoothies, here are smoothie recipes to create that your temple will continue to thank you for.
