The Flare Diaries

I’m Kirsten McNeill, 23 years old and chasing after my dreams. If you know me, you know that I work my butt off and have a passion for fashion. With a new year comes new beginnings and this year I definitely have a great opportunity for one. Tonight is filled with nerves, excitement, joy and visions of my dreams coming true. When I graduated from university, I knew that I wanted to pursue a career in marketing but didn’t think I would be lucky enough to combine my passion outside of work into my work. Never would I have imagined that tomorrow I would be starting my journey as a Flare marketing intern.

It still doesn’t quite feel real as I think about what my first day will be like and meeting the team. It’s a little past midnight and it’s just starting to hit me that this is tomorrow!! I…

01.10.2013 – A Good Run

Run Jenni, Run

I made it through three miles of hills, and I only walked the side streets…I am pretty damn proud of myself.  I am trying to remind myself not to push too hard, but I like the progress that I have made this week.  Depending on how tomorrow goes at the gym I will either keep at this rate or taper off for a week or two.  My leg is in the deciding stages of whether it wants to give me problems or not.  As for my feet, I am happy to welcome back the atrocity known as runner’s feet.  I could never date someone with a foot fetish.  Most of the time I feel like pedicures are even lost on my babies.

Holiday Baking: Giada De Laurentiis’ Lemon Thyme Bars

The Food Geekery

So it’s the holidays, and of course, that means most of us crave sweets. My mom made fudge, bought a lot of cookies, but I mean, come on, we need something bright and fruity on the palate, right? I had been wanting to try Giada De Laurentiis’ Lemon Thyme bars, and I figured, why not? My mom likes lemon bars, I love lemon bars, so I figured it’s time to try!

(Note, I’m blogging while making these. You will know my opinion of how they turned out at the very end.)

I’ve never been disappointed by a Giada recipe. This is probably the sixth or seventh thing I’ve tried from her. From the picture on the recipe, it doesn’t look like your traditional lemon bar. You know, the ones with the thin crust and the gooey, silky lemon filling on top. This looks a bit more cakey, with a glaze…
