Here comes the sun!

At least, I hope so.

The weather can be crazy here in Central PA.  One day I’m driving around with my Ray Bans on and the top down, and a few days later I’m scraping snow off my car.

But either way, spring is here and summer is just around the corner.  So is that cute black bikini I just bought at Target.  Time to talk sunscreen! Continue reading

These Mediterranean veggies are like black leggings…

Extremely versatile!

I ❤️  leggings!

I wear black leggings almost every day.  You can throw on a Lululemon jacket and look like you are going to do some yoga (even if you’re not).  Or a flannel and Hunter boots for a cute look on a dreary day.  Top them with a long, dressier cardigan, cool jewelry and some badass booties and you’re ready for date night.

It’s the same thing with these veggies.   Continue reading

Warming up with a vanilla latte on a chilly spring morning…

is pretty much the best thing ever.

Especially if that vanilla latte tastes like dessert and is amazing for your skin, hair and nails.  Oh yeah, it could even help you lose weight.  Doesn’t get much better than that!

I made this latte with some of my favorite things:  Javazen organic coffee, organic coconut oil, and Vanilla Coconut Collagen Fuel from Primal Kitchen.

I was so thrilled with it that I made a short video:

Want $134 worth of skincare? For free?

Yeah, I thought so!

100% Pure has an awesome gift with purchase right now.  If you spend $55 (get the Lengthening mascara…you will thank me later!) you receive this adorable bag filled with goodies.

It includes the Charcoal Konjac sponge and Coffee Bean Eye Cream, both of which I have used and love.  (The eye cream smells like a cookie!)  You also get Vitamin C Serum, Aqua Boost Hydrating Mask, Argan Creamy Cleanser, and a cute drawstring bag.

The saying on the bag kind of makes me chuckle.  Guess it all depends on who you’re talking to! Continue reading

Since it’s St. Patrick’s Day…

I’m thinking green drinks.  But not green beer.  Or Shamrock Shakes.

Drinking a green drink (almost) every day is a habit that has stayed with me from my vegan days.  There’s something about starting the day with something fresh and green that really feels great.

In fact, I consider leafy greens to be one of my top skin foods.  (If you want to know the others, here’s a popular post from last summer:  People always ask me…. )

I started out with green smoothiesContinue reading

Tea and me

It’s no secret that I adore coffee.  I have probably published more posts about coffee than anything else.  And stay tuned…I have an awesome vanilla latte recipe coming up in the next few days.

But I can’t drink coffee all day.  I would be overly wired.  And bored.

So sometimes I switch to tea.  Sometimes it’s chai.  Or matcha. Lately I’ve been enjoying tulsi tea.
