When In Spain

While hoping through Europe we had the pleasure of staying at an old Spanish, remodeled, castle. And of course I couldn’t go without wearing one of my favorite summer dresses. Side note: obsessed with these new shoes, and will forever be getting my shoes from Shu Shop

Summer Secrets

I’m always looking for new, boutique swim and clothing brands. Because no one wants to show up at the beach wearing the same bikini as every other girl. 

This summer I’m definitely keeping my eye on Mademoiselle Louise Deisgns, a French swim and lingerie designer in Miami Beach. 

You can check out her etsy store here! And her Instagram @mademoiselle_louise_designs

Summer Preperation 

Today’s post was inspired by the incredibly hot, hundred degree weather we are experiencing in South Beach.

Summer is just around the corner and it’s always nice to get prepared ahead of time. So I’ve linked some of my favorite summer products to keep you glowy this season! As well as some of my favorite summer tips. 

Glowy skin// 

My absolutely favorite product for glowy skin is bio oil! You can use it all over your body as well as your face, to give your skin that extra boost and moisture it craves. 

I’ve also made up my own concoction of body oil. Inside i mixed coconut oil // vitamin e oil // green tea tree oil // rose hip oil // bio oil. I use this little concoction before bedtime to allow my skin to absorb all of the amazing vitamins and  nutrients!

SPF! SPF! SPF! I’ve always used SPF on my face because I was always told that you needed too. But recently I’ve realized just how important it is. That being said, I’ll never go a day without SPF on my face. If I do miss a day, I’ll notice a complete difference in my skin and pigmentation. My favorite is Dermalogica SPF 50.


Summer tip//

Join a gym that has a variety of class, to allow you to mix up your routine and stay motivated! I recently joined my local Equinox gym, and I’m absolutely obsessed! Gotta get summer beach body ready, am I right?!

Drink lots of water! I try to drink at least a gallon a day, and I notice a huge difference from drinking lots of water. Benefits I’ve experienced are, flatter tummy, healthy skin, energy and appetite control. I mean, our bodies are mostly made of water, so shouldn’t we try to drink lots of it? 😛

Healthy is Happy | Dr Smood

I had the pleasure of dining, with some fellow influencers from South Beach, at a charming and health conscious café 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 décor 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!
