Biggest Beauty Secret

I am sure you have all heard of this amazing secret, that even the top of the top models swear by. It’s good for your skin, fitness and overall health. And it is one of the most important necessities for life. Have you figured it out yet?

It is water!

Yes water, we all need it, but most people don’t make it a habit to drink enough. I myself set a personal goal to finish, at minimum, one full gallon jug of water. I usually tend to go a little over a gallon. But boy when I don’t drink my gallon, if I’m super busy that day or travelling, I notice a huge difference in the way I feel, perform and look.

So if there was one thing I would recommend everyone to do, it would be to challenge yourself to drink a gallon of water a day, and you’ll see a huge difference within a week!

That being said, fall is upon us, and it is never to early to start working towards that summer bod. Rather than waiting till spring and feeling the need to workout excessively and track your foods.

With that in mind, I’ve found an amazing new water that is perfect for those days when you need an extra boost of energy, and a good way to fill that gallon up. It’s called 3 Water! I use it before my workout because there is some caffeine, which gives me a little pick me up. It’s Ph balanced, which is always my preferred choice of water, and of course it has tons of electrolytes! So why not switch things up a bit and try water that is ever better than regular water!

Perfect for pre workout, or a day by the pool! You can honestly never have enough water!

Fun tip: I use 3 water and mix it with my preworkout before, for an extra boost of energy!

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? 😛

1. What is the most embarrassing thing that has happened to you?

Oh this question is always a hard one and I can never think of one! I guess I would have to say the most recent embarrassing thing that happened to me was hitting my head on the bus door the other day. I just moved to a new school, so it was even more awkward and I am pretty sure everyone on the bus saw it.

2. What is your favorite cuisine?

I love seafood! I grew up in Alaska, and spend summer there so we always eat lots of seafood!

3. Describe your style in 3 words.

Simple, Chic, Comfy

4. What is the last book your read?

I listened to “50 Shades of Grey” on Audible.

5. What is a workout/exercise you recommend doing?

Something you love! It is much easier to get a workout when doing an activity you enjoy, rather than going to the gym. I prefer to play beach volleyball.

6. What is you favourite movie and why?

It’s a close tie, I love “Pride and Prejudice” the newer one with Kiera Knightly because I am a sucker for those old, victorian styled romances. I always thought it would be fun to dress up like those ladies and live in that time for a day or two. But I also love the “Underworld” series. Vampires are my weakness. 😛

7. Describe something you’ve always wanted to do.

I have always wanted to ride camels to the pyramids of Egypt

8. What are your top 3 places you’d like to travel?

Egypt, Thailand and Africa

9. What is your holy grail product?

I love Last Blast mascara by Covergirl, I could have a makeup collection with only mascara and be fine! haha

Relaxing spa day every time!
