Choose Love ♡

Hiiiii!!!! Hope you guys had an amazing long weekend! I'm happy to report I'm feeling so much better after a few low key days of rest and excited to start a fresh new week feeling good. Thank you for all the well wishes!!

Today's post is something I've been thinking a lot about lately and something we all face everyday - choices. There are two places from which we make our decisions: love and fear. We work because we love what we do or we fear not being able to make money if we don’t. We stay in relationships because we’re in love with our partner or we fear being alone and not finding a greater love. We work out because we love the way it makes us feel or we fear gaining weight and being out of shape. Ultimately, all of...

NYC Recap + How I Kill the Sickies

I'm back from NYC and surprise, surprise....I'm sick. Going into the week, I knew I had a pretty impossible schedule while there (back to back meetings all day + late work/friend dinners + every meal out + very little sleep) and was beginning to feel a bit under the weather, but thought for sure it was just travel tiredness from too much Vegas fun the night before. I really felt it coming on the morning of my second day there, but I had so many meetings that I somehow powered through on adrenaline and it stayed in "maybe a cold coming on" mode until I got on the plane home and it fully took over. My seat mates loved me so much after I kept coughing, sneezing, and snotting the whole way back. My ears also loved the altitude. It was a really...

Lust List :: The Blacks

Black is without a doubt my favorite color and ultimate wardrobe staple. Whenever I splurge on an investment piece like Louboutins or a Celine bag, my first color of choice is always black because I know it will match everything I own and can be worn so many ways. Black is chic, sleek, sophisticated, and effortlessly cool. When I don’t know what to wear or need a confidence boost, head to toe black always does the trick.

Living Your Truth

Helllooo from NYC! Currently bouncing around the city meeting with editors of all my favorite magazines to talk about Suja and all the exciting new products we've released - including our delish new Essentials line! Having such a great time and the weather could not be any better. I've been posting updates on Instagram so you can see what I've been up to!

Switching gears, I want to talk about something that’s come up throughout my life and I find to be really interesting topic of discussion. Since I was a child, I’ve been extremely into natural healing, organic foods, and clean living. I was vegan for 7 years and ate raw for 3 of those years. I’ve juiced consistently throughout my teen and college years before it was “normal” in order to deal with extreme food allergies and autoimmune...

Cape-able

There’s something about a cape that I love! I’ve always thought they are so polished and sophisticated in a Victorian way. I found this one that I absolutely love because it’s not over the top or difficult to style. It has a classic blazer feel with structured shoulders and the arm just peeks through with movement.

How To Pack Like a Pro

I’m getting ready to head out of town today and thought it would be fun to share my packing protocol with you guys. So, packing isn’t torture for me at all anymore, but it used to cause me big time brain chaos. For one thing, I’m not an outfit “planner”. What if I’m in a different mood when I’m getting dressed than I was when I planned? I don’t usually know what I’m wearing until 5-10 minutes before I walk out the door and I like it that way. So having to decide what I’m wearing for days and days in advance and can’t change my mind because I only have those options with me seems like…whoa…a lot.

Top 12: San Diego

Welcome to the big beautiful NEW Blawnde site!!! Ahhhh I’m so excited about it! I wanted to incorporate some things that make it easier for you guys to find posts you want to read, shop items you like, and roam around a little quicker. As before, the BLAWNDE homepage is a pure space and always will be. I’m not interested in cluttering it up with ads and marketing or product promotions for brands I don’t even use. It may have gotten an extreme makeover, but BLAWNDE is still the same old G. I hope you love it as much as I do! :)

What I Ate: LA

Hi peeps! I’ve been working from LA this week and have been eating some super yummy, healthy meals! I’ve been extra hungry lately which happens to me randomly sometimes (I think because I’ve been super busy and days have been long) so I’ve been eating a bit larger meals than usual. Here’s what I ate Tuesday…

Like to Know It + Overall

Before I jump into the oh so important deets of this outfit, I want to thank you all for such warm feedback on my last post. It is always a bit uncomfortable to post personal thoughts like that -will I be judged? I never know how something I put out will be received and keeping the focus off myself and on an outfit or a meal is always easier. So thank you for sharing your own thoughts, relating to each other, and making such a productive and positive discussion happen. It’s really the whole reason why I have this space and what I want it to be all about while you’re here with me. OK! Now, onto the highly intellectual topic of overalls…

Getting Real

There’s something I want you guys to know. I’m a real person who goes through up and down times. I’m not a robot. And I’m also not good at faking. I don’t know how to not pour out the things I’m sad, emotional, and anxious about when I’m feeling them because I like to connect with the people in my life and let them help me and be there for me. I haven’t always been an open book, and saw facing challenges or hard times as imperfection. It wasn’t until I actually had some that I realized I don’t have to be perfect and I don’t want to be if it means I can’t open up and share who I am and what I’m going through with other people. Life isn’t meant to be lived alone and going through things on your own.
