Spring Slim Down

Spring Slim Down

I mixed up the above elixir in an effort to brighten my skin and boost my metabolism for spring. I've always loved  infusing my water  but I specifically chose the ingredients for this recipe to be healing and detoxifying. Did you know  cinnamon is believed to curb sugar cravings  and  lemon is a well known detoxifier , which means less swelling! For me personally, mint is a natural mood lifter and great for my sinuses and since allergy and pollen season is in full force here in Georgia, you better bet I'm stocking my garden with this stuff. For best results with this all-natural slim down drink, mix up a large batch each morning and sip it throughout the day. I recommend repeating this for 2-3 days in a...Read More

Healthy Cookie Bars with Blueberry Cheesecake...

When you need a sweet treat and not totally in the mood to blow your entire day’s caloric bank, you may want to try these Healthy Cookie Bars with Blueberry Cheesecake Filling. Yup — these are skinny! Well, skinny-ish… I was on the couch the other day running super low on energy and full of cravings I couldn’t kick. So what else should I do besides start scanning  Pinterest  – right? And then I was stopped dead in my tracks by these bad boys from  Food Leyhib . I looked at the ingredients and what a shame I don’t stock butter and cream cheese in my house. But not really! Because I only keep health optimizing foods on hand I had a feeling I could make some good subs. So...Read More

Winter Whites: Who Says You Can't?

Winter Whites: Who Says You Can't?

Jacket: Thrifted at  Temptations Boutique  // Jeans:  Express  // Handbag:  Coach  // Sunnies: Coach  // Boots:  Fergie The traditional fashion rule of not wearing white between Labor Day and Memorial Day most likely dates back to the early 1900′s. Fashionistas through the ages have questioned and challenged this “rule,” because 1) we like to question rules, and 2) no one to date has provided any solid evidence of this rule’s origin, or that it’s really even a RULE! We all just  know  it, right? Like cleanliness is next to Godliness, and we shouldn’t throw babies out with bathwater… Whatever. Coco Chanel famously challenged the...Read More

Happy March 32!

Oh, hahaha.

Happy March 32!

Psych! It’s April 1 st , sorry if we scared you but it’s April Fool’s Day – the one day of the year it’s not only acceptable to prank your friends, it’s expected. While you’re plotting out your next move, a couple things to keep in mind to keep this Fool’s Day fun: ·Try to keep it lighthearted – it’s a practical joke, so keep it playful without hurting or offending anyone. ·The best April Fools include a shade of truth – if your goal is to get people to believe you, don’t try to convince them you were abducted by alien dogs. ·Commit – if you’re trying to keep a pretense going the whole day, don’t fold halfway through your plan, no one will believe you right up until the point they do believe you. ·Start simple – a...Read More

Clean Out, Simplify, Savor

Everyone done with spring cleaning? I confess I'm not...

Clean Out, Simplify, Savor

The start of spring is the time to clean out, clear away and refresh our minds and homes in preparation for the glories of warmer weather... and maybe make a little space for new spring clothes. No other sort of cleaning comes as close to ‘fun’ as ‘spring cleaning’ does. So make it fun! Here are some tips: 1. Start where you see it most : to make a quick, satisfying impact start with a spot that you see when you and your guests first walk through the door, such as your front closet or kitchen countertops. 2. Don’t get overwhelmed , no matter how much clutter seems to have accumulated over the winter months. Start with one room, or even one drawer, and celebrate small victories. 3. Donate what you clean out. The feel-good...Read More
