It’s in the bag

Sequins make me happy!

How cute is my carry on?  I’m such a sucker for the Victoria’s Secret giveaways.  I can’t tell you how many times I have convinced myself I needed two new bras just because the blanket/umbrella/tote bag they were giving away was so adorable!

But what’s really important is what I’m putting in the bag to help me feel happy, healthy and hot when I fly to Mexico in a few days.  Here’s a peek inside…

Pretty in Pink

Pink salt, that is!  Not that I didn’t love the movie.  But if I had to pick a favorite John Hughes movie I’d go with Breakfast Club.  It had the best soundtrack.

Isn’t it pretty?

But about the pretty pink salt. I’ve mentioned this salt as an ingredient in a number of my posts, but I’ve never really explained why I use it.

Here’s the thing….salt tastes good.

Thinking dirty

Because that’s what you expect from me, right?  What other health blogger is posting inappropriate photos of 5sos?  (And if you missed that, check out my recent post on collagen (Collagen confusion).

But when I say “thinking dirty,” this time I’m actually talking about the stuff we put on our faces and bodies.  There are crazy toxins in many products that we use every single day, without thinking.  And guess what?  There’s an app for that!

My latest obsession

annmarie gianni serum
I’m wearing pleather leggings, of course!

is an anti-aging duo of serum and oil from Annmarie Gianni Skin Care.  I guess I should really say one of my latest obsessions.  The others are “My House” by FloRida, which I can’t get enough of, and Neff beanies, which you see me wearing in a lot of my pics.  I’ll let you in on a little secret…I have a really big head, and these are the only beanies that fit me right.

But about the skin care…. Continue reading

Collagen confusion

collagen eliz“Which brand of collagen should I buy?” That’s another question I get asked a lot!  There are two popular brands on the market, Vital Proteins and Great Lakes. There are some differences between the two, but I’ve had great results with both.  It’s kind of like asking which boy band you like better…1D or 5sos?  Love them both!

5sos…what’s not to like?!

Since I started adding collagen to my daily routine a few years ago, I have noticed a real improvement  Continue reading

Remember those cute guys I talked about

a few months ago?  Not Justin Beiber and Jason Derulo…I talk about them all the time!  I’m actually referring to the cute little fruit I was into back in December, called Satsuma Mandarins. They were only in season for a month, and I couldn’t get enough of them.  You can read that post right here if you missed it: Are these guys cute or what?

Well, those Satsuma Mandarins have a bigger, badder cousin, called the Sumo.  And I am just as obsessed!
