Wandering Together for 10 Years

04.21.18

A family that wanders together stays together | Modish Wanderer x Modish and Main The Legansky’s celebrate wandering together for 10 years!

Yes, we sometimes jokingly refer to ourselves as The Legansky’s as a hybrid-culmination of our last names. None the less, we are celebrating 10 years together today! As the date has been approaching we have been talking about how fast these past 10 years have flown by. There is so much life that has happened in 3,650 days and I’m so proud that we’ve taken that journey together.

A family that wanders together stays together | Modish Wanderer x Modish and Main It’s crazy to think that I have been dating Sean since I was 23 years old. I was a puppy! He has stood by my side through all my crazy endeavors, wild ideas and desire to constantly be on the go. He keeps me grounded, helps pull back the reigns & provides me with the stability to balance my wandering soul. A little bit of our best traits have rubbed off on one another over the past decade and I truly believe it’s made both of us better people and most importantly, better partners.

Healthy Living : Taking My Daily Vitamins

04.12.18

Living a healthy life by taking essential vitamins from Touchstone Essentials every day. | Modish and Main While I meant to get this healthy living post up during my March Healthy Living Challenge, time got away from me with work and family visiting. None the less, I wanted to share with you how I continue my healthy living by taking my daily vitamins.

I’m the first to admit that I’m notorious for being on a roller coaster of taking vitamins and supplements for a hot second and then falling off the band wagon 2 weeks in. While I still haven’t perfected my system, I have finally found a brand of supplements that I feel confident taking and that it’s truly helping my wellness. Unfortunately our current system simply falls short for making manufacturers adhere to strict standards especially when labeling things “all natural,” “organic” and even “doctor recommended.”  I cannot stress enough that you need to do research before taking any vitamins or supplements as most on the market are only a fraction of what they are marketed as.

5 Year Blogiversary + Giveaway

04.03.18

Celebrating lifestyle blog, Modish and Main, turning 5 years old with a Modish Wanderer Giveaway!

I am so excited to share with you that it is Modish & Main’s Blogiversary by turning 5 years old today and we have a GIVEAWAY to celebrate! I can vividly remember the days leading up to publishing my first blog post back on April 3, 2013. I had spent countless (and I mean countless) nights with little to no sleep making sure EVERYTHING was set and ready to go. Things looked a lot different on the blog back then, but the launch of Modish & Main has completely changed the path of my life.

Celebrating lifestyle blog, Modish and Main, turning 5 years old with a Modish Wanderer Giveaway!

When I decided to start this lifestyle blog 5 years ago it was simply as a way to have my own creative outlet & share the things I was interested in with my friends and family. Never could I have imagined still producing content 5 years later and having the opportunity to work with amazing brands and incredible people. Back then I had never even lifted a DSLR camera, didn’t know a single thing about Photoshop or Lightroom or let alone how to run a blog. The one thing I did have was passion.

Sweet Potato and Sausage Hash

03.22.18

Enjoy a healthy, paleo inspired breakfast with this sweet potato and sausage hash recipe. | Modish and Main I’m that girl who cannot move onto lunch food until I’ve had a proper breakfast. For the past 2 months we’ve been enjoying a healthy, paleo inspired breakfast with this sweet potato and sausage hash recipe in the mornings (often times with a fried egg on top).

It was introduced to me on our ski trip back in January by my brother’s girlfriend, Tessie, who made it for the whole group one morning. Like I mentioned above, I typically enjoy it with a fried egg on top and love when the yolk smothers the sweet potato. When you’re in a rush or simply not feeling the egg, the breakfast hash is just as yummy by itself or topped with some sliced avocado. What I love most about this sweet potato and sausage hash recipe is that it makes a lot of food. I’ll make it on a Sunday morning and get to enjoy it for another 3-4 days throughout week for breakfast (and sometimes lunch). It’s the perfect meal-prep Sunday recipe.

Connecting with Gal Pals at Los Agaves

03.14.18

Do you ever catch yourself looking at life through the rearview mirror because you’re so busy with work, family and other commitments? I know I’m guilty of it and I was grateful to take some time yesterday to connect with gal pals at the new Los Agaves restaurant here in Oxnard.

As an entrepreneur & lifestyle blogger, I certainly have my moments of “woman hear me roar!” where I think I can accomplish it all. You can just about imagine how wrong I am about that. Sometimes it’s just taking a few hours out of our busy lives to grab lunch with your closest girlfriends (Aisha from The Middle of Here & Jill from The 805 Diary) to talk shop, catch up about life and to be honest, talk about random things like Tom Cruise’s latest movie selections (uh hmmm… is another Mission Impossible really necessary?).

Healthy Breakfast with Paleo Pancakes

03.13.18

Enjoy a healthy breakfast with paleo pancakes from Birch Benders. | Modish and Main We are into week 2.5 of my healthy living challenge & I wanted to share with you a healthy breakfast option with paleo pancakes. A person can only eat so many eggs, bacon, protein smoothies and açai bowls. Besides, when the weekend rolls around who doesn’t crave a stack of pancakes? To keep it healthy, I started making these paleo pancakes from Birch Benders.

Enjoy a healthy breakfast with paleo pancakes from Birch Benders. | Modish and Main I can’t take credit for finding this paleo pancake mix, that I have to give to my oldest brother, Brent. Him and his wife started eating a paleo diet at the beginning of the year and my brother dropped 30+  pounds in just 2 months! While I’m not eating a 100% paleo diet, I am incorporating recipes throughout the week and since I already eat gluten free and dairy free, it’s been a pretty easy adjustment.

Create an Organized Area for Workout Gear

03.08.18

Create an organized area in your home for your workout gear with just a pretty basket. | Modish and Main One week completed for my March Healthy Living Challenge & I’ve been committed to staying active a minimum of 30 minutes a day. In order to make that possible, because I hate going to the gym, is by creating an organized area for my workout gear right in my own living room. Sure I wish I had an extra room, basement or garage space to designate for a workout room, but I don’t.  Therefore my workouts take place in the main room of our home and I didn’t want to pull out my workout gear each and every time from some magical hiding place.

I Taught a Food Photography Workshop

How to photography instal-worthy food photography at Whole Foods Market by Modish and Main If you were to have told me 5 years ago when I borrowed my parents DSLR camera for the first time that I was going to teach a food photography workshop, I simply would have laughed. I only wanted to learn photography so that I could capture some decent images to add to my blog posts. It didn’t take long for me to realize that I loved every aspect of being behind the camera. I became immersed in learning the in’s & out’s and was rewarded years later by being able to extend my knowledge with a group of 22 other inspiring photographers!
