Weekly Love: Week 181

Happy September everyone! So I must admit that I have given in, and if you follow me on Instagram (@missrachelphipps) I’ve started posting Instagram Stories over the past few days. I’m giving a bit more of a snapshot into my day to day life (and more importantly, what I’m eating day to day) than I’ve given before, and I’m really excited about the new format to show you guys a little bit more of what goes on in my kitchen and behind the scenes here on the blog. So, be sure to follow me to make sure you don’t miss out on my updates!
