Superfood Latte

Hi everyone - Happy Friday!! I'm currently at the airport headed to SF for a fun wellness weekend with some incredible people, but I won't lie..I'm dragging a bit. Yes, sometimes I drag and when that happens I love nothing more than a delish cup of coffee. I stopped drinking coffee for a while because I sort of lost my taste for it! To give you a little background of my coffee history, I've never been in the strong camp that coffee is bad for you and actually think it's a great source of antioxidants. I also think a little caffeine can actually be a great thing for some people. Note, I said "a little". I am NOT a fan of guzzling more than 2-3 cups per day until you're shaking/heart palpitating and I'm SUPER NOT a fan of sugary, syrupy, cow milky, aspartamey "coffee drinks". I...

NY Times Bestseller + Weekend!

Hi guys!!!! I hope you had a great weekend and that your week is off to an amazing start! This weekend was super special for me because I woke up Saturday morning to this:

The Suja Solution hit the NY Times bestseller list!!!!!! Wooooo!!! I can't even tell you how grateful I am for each and every one of your support for this book - YOU made this happen!!! I've gotten so many e-mails and photo tags of recipes you're making, new foods you're buying and trying, and your books arriving in the mail! Each and every one of you is so special and I am so lucky to be able to connect with you, hear your stories, and get to know you. This project started in May of 2014 and it was very surreal to...

Turtleneck to the Maxi

Maxi dresses are a newer favorite of mine that I've only started appreciating in the last year or so! I'm a shorter, petite body type so it's really difficult to find ones that aren't overtaking on my frame and make me feel like I'm wearing a potato sack. I saw this dress and loved the cut of the turtleneck with open shoulders and generous collarbone action. The reason this maxi works for me is all about the fit - it's tight and figure hugging so I don't drown in it or feel like it's wearing me. I love pieces like this that can go from a nice weekend daytime brunch or lunch to an evening out with a few accessory switches! That's the #1 quality I look for when I buy new wardrobe items because I want to have a closet full of...

Low Sugar Green Smoothie

Good morning! I’m sure many of you appreciate a good green smoothie, so today I’m sharing my favorite recipe that is my go-to standard blend I’ve made since college. The reason I love this one is because it’s low in SUGAR. It also has a low glycemic index so it keeps you satisfied for more than 10 minutes and doesn’t cause a spike and crash of your energy levels. I’m a big fan of natural sugars and don’t have an ish with fruits and starchy veggies. But, I do have an ish with green smoothies gone candy. The problem with a lot of green smoothie recipes out there is they go a little far with the sugar, size, and complexity. The point of a green smoothie is to make a few not so easy to eat ingredients like raw leafy greens...

Weekending

Happy Monday!!! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend doing things you love! This was one of the first weekends I've had in a while that felt nice and long. Usually, I blink my eyes and it seems like it's already over so it was great to relax into the weekend vibe and soak it up with some of my favorite people and activities! Here's a peek at what I did:

 Not 1, but 2 baseball games - both wins! Go Padres!! I used to be bored during baseball games because it's a slow sport compared to basketball (my fave!), but now that's my favorite part about watching baseball because you can still chat and enjoy the people you're with! My girlfriend Kayleigh and I sat next to each other and noticed later on the TV replay that we like to talk...

Lace Dress

If you know one thing about me by now, it's that I like black. And I like lace. This dress is such a great LBD for me because it's the perfect balance of flirty with the sheer cutouts that show a peek of skin, and simple with the high neck and fitted silhouette. It has such a romantic date night vibe! I wore my simple black strappy sandals to let the dress be the show piece and because I'm all for wearing a shoe that elongates my legs with a mini.

  

Dress: Nightcap // Shoes: Stuart Weitzman // Bag: Saint Laurent

Do you have a favorite LBD that's a bit more special than your others?

The Suja Juice Solution

You guys!!!! Today is a super exciting day over here because it's finally heeeeere - the book!

I've had this tab on the blog for a while so you could get the gist of what this book was all about, but I wanted to do a formal post now that it's available to give you a bit more information and explain why this book is different and the inspiration behind it! Here's a little Q+ A all about the SJS:

 

WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT THE SUJA JUICE SOLUTION?

What I feel is so important about The Suja Juice Solution is that i'ts not a cleanse at all – it’s a complete lifestyle shift. I don’t want someone to read this book with the mindset that when they finish, it’s over. I want someone to read...

Amangiri

Hi everyone! I hope you had an amazing weekend and are feeling refreshed and ready to take on a new week! I spent last week on vacation in southern Utah near the AZ border for what was one of the most magical experiences of my life! I have about 42 million pictures in this post, so I'll keep the text light, but here's a bit of info on where I was and what we did...

LOCATION

Amangiri, which means "peaceful mountain", is a resort in Canyon Point, UT that is tucked into a protected valley that is pretty remote and surrounded by stratified rock. It's not the easiest place to get to, but so worth it when you do! The design uses natural materials and textures that really play off the landscape and give such a minimal, zen vibe. It's extremely...

You Think It’s Healthy, But It’s Lying – Part VI

 

Hi everyone!!!! Happy mid-week! I’m currently away in the desert soaking up some rest and relaxation which I can’t wait to share with you all in a recap post when I return! In the meantime, it’s been a bit since I’ve done a “Healthy, But Lying” post so I wanted to catch up with some foods that majorly bug me. If you haven’t seen some of the previous posts here’s part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, and part 5!

  SALAD BARS: Ok, salad bars actually CAN be totally healthy. I frequent the Whole Foods salad bar for at least 60% of my weekly meals when I’m busy as F, and it makes my life a whole lot easier. So, I’m definitely not bashing salad bars as a whole here. But, I am wanting...
