Healthy is Happy | Dr Smood

I had the pleasure of dining, with some fellow influencers from South Beach, at a charming and health conscious cafΓ© called Dr Smood; along with our own personal nutritionist who walked us through some of their most popular menu items. That being said, I only thought it fair to share some of my favorite health tips that were mentioned during the luncheon!img_3686
First off, can we just admire the dΓ©cor and interior of Dr Smood? It is definitely the perfect place to come for a healthy meal and chill out. This was the Wynwood, Miami location.

Tidbits!

  • Drinking lots of water is amazing for your body, but you should always try to drink Alkaline water as much as you can. Our nutritionist used a great example to explain the different between regular water and alkaline water. (So you have a shower, and it is constantly getting rinsed off whenever you are inside. But you still have to go in and clean your shower every now and then, even though its continuously getting rinsed. The same applies to your body, drinking water is good to help clean out your system, but drink alkaline water allows your body to flush out all the bad toxins.)
  • We all know moderation is key, and sometimes its hard to avoid that sweet treat. Don’t feel bad for indulging, just know how to treat your body after a cheat meal. For example, if you eat a yummy glazed doughnut, try to help your body digest the treat faster, by drinking a lot of water and liquids.
  • Chaga, is a great alternative to coffee, it gives you all the energy and helps your body to metabolism, but it is even better for you!
  • There is a difference between cacao, cocoa and chocolate. An item can not be labeled as cacao unless it is unadultured, raw cacao from the cacao tree. Chocolate on the other hand has been manipulated and has added ingredients that may not be as healthy. And cocoa is just a fancy way to say chocolate and can sometimes confuse people on whether its raw, healthy chocolate, or sugary refined chocolate.

My favorite item would have to be the Cold Pressed Vegan Mylk, Non-Dairy Chocolate Mylk. Tastes better than regular chocolate milk, but its full of healthy ingredients like brazil nut mylk, dates, cacao nibs, cacao powder, cinnamon and vanilla! Yumm

Cheers to the weekend and keeping out bodies healthy and happy!

Netflix & Veg

Taking a spin on the ever famous “Netflix and chill” idea, I’ve decided to post my ideal Netflix and Vegetate night. 

And who says you need to have a significant other to have a fun night in. If anyone is the master of staying in, I’d have to say I take the cake. I’d much rather cozy up to a movie then spend the night partying and I know some of you guys have to feel the same! 

Today I wanted to share a few key things needed to make your night in, the coziest.

A Friend (Furry, or not, or both!)

My friends and I usually always opt to have a girls night in, and having someone to gossip with always makes the night more fun. And of course I can’t forget my furry little friend, Finn, who you can find snuggled at our feet. 

A Good Show

Up to now I’ve been on “The Bachelor” bandwagon and haven’t been able to stop! 

But if there aren’t any good shows to watch, or you’re all caught up, here are some of my all time favorite romcom/romance movies. 

Hitch – The Holiday – Friends with Benefits – Breakfast at Tiffanys – Pride and Prejudice 

Comfy PJs

And there’s nothing better that slipping into my favorite satin pjs or cozy robe. Here is one of my favorites from AdoreMe!

Yummy Snack

My infamous caramel popcorn is always the most popular guy of the night and the most key ingredient to your your Netflix and veg night! Here is a link to my caramel popcorn recipe!

Warm weather is just around the corner, which means boats, bikinis and day parties! Which also means it’s almost time to get into bikini bod mode. Working out by yourself can be difficult sometimes, but cute workout gear and a workout partner makes things so much easier.

Florida Chills

This is for sure my current favorite outfit I own! Obsessing over this trench and Steve Madden boots! It can be hard to dress cute in Florida winters, the day starts off freezing cold but come noon and it becomes steaming hot! I find this look able to satisfy my need for warmth, while also being able to keep me cool for the hot sun!

These Are So Bomb

We all know the Jenner//Kardashian clan are some of the most influential style icons out there. Therefore, it comes by no surprise that after they started sporting around Yeezy-esk bomber jackets, the shelves were filled with likewise styles.

Today, once again, we are #blessed to spot some s-u-p-e-r fashionable bomber style jackets, by the one and only Spirit Jersey!

Not only are these the perfect fit and addition to most any outfit, the denim wash adds even more trendyness.
