Feelin Thrifty With ThredUp

Have you ever shopped used? I'm gonna be honest, the thought of wearing secondhand clothing used to freak me out (I blame it on my inner germaphobe). Don't get me wrong, I've always been a fan of thrifting and I'm not ashamed to admit I'm always up for a stroll around an antique store but I've always stuck with used furniture, books, various decor - NOT clothes. Would it look worn? Will I waste my money? Would there be mysterious stains and smells? I was a skeptic. Then, a couple of years ago I decided to order something off of ThredUp (yep, I got suckered in by a Facebook ad) and I have been hooked ever since!

Greek Honey-Orange Cake

Just look at that liquid gold.

Gosh, it pays to have a honey hook-up. We were recently given a bounty of fresh, local honey so I had to make something that pays homage to this amazing ingredient - enter, this bomb honey cake! I stumbled upon this recipe on Pinterest from The Meditteranean Dish and when I saw the glistening almonds and pistachios, I knew I was in for a treat and it did not disappoint.
