Alisha’s: Best snacks to travel with

Airplane/airport food can be a bit meh and pricey too. It always seems like no matter how much I eat before getting on the plane, I’m hungry as soon as we hit cruising altitude. Although free peanuts and pretzels are nice (if you’re lucky), sometimes you want something a little more to get through the flight. […]

Alisha Makes: The Spicy Actress AKA Spicy Watermelon Cocktail

This week Jess and I were strapped for cash (it’s a long story that involves Las Vegas and financial decisions). So I decided to pay homage to the City of Sin with a spicy cocktail because we had all the ingredients in our fridges/ no need to hit the super market! Win win! If we were going to be […]
