The great morning boost.. Aloe Herbal Elixir

Happy Memorial Day everyone! 

Aloe Vera has long been around for many years, and it’s such a natural product , that the gel is used to combat many skin issues. Aloe Vera gel contains many health plant compounds, and not only helps with skin issues, but also has known to help lower blood sugar levels in diabetics. 

This morning elixir is amazing, and I just tried it this weekend , after reading Mindbodygreen. We all know that taking a probiotic is so important when it comes to gut health, due to the fact that it’s the most important component in our immune system. There are over 400 types of bacteria that live in there , so it’s up to us to keep our guy health very healthy. It’s known that a poor living lifestyle such as stress overload, poor diet, pollution, toxin build up and so much more can push our health down the drain. Aloe Vera has long been known to help improve our stomach and kidney health, and adding in aloe Vera gel is a great way to keep our guts healthy and stabilized. 

Here is a wonderful morning drink that is not only healthy , but quite delicious, loaded with antioxidants, and plenty of vitamins. 1 tsp fresh aloe Vera gel


1 tsp turmeric

1/2 tsp marshmallow root powder

1/2 oz. Apple cider vinegar 

8 0z. Warm water 

Add all the ingredients into hot water, and shake well.

Over night Chia -Oat cups

Happy Friday! 

I have to share this recipe because it just topped my list as one of my favorites. I recently picked up Kristen Cavallari “Balancing in Heels ” book, and this recipe was in there. I have to say that it is delish, and fairly simple. This recipe takes all but two minutes to prepare, and is loaded up with omega 3’s, great fiber, plenty of vitamins and minerals. I see where these cups can become highly addictive. This makes one serving. 


1/2 cup thick rolled oats 

1 cup plain unsweetened almond milk 

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1 teaspoon real maple syrup

In a glass container , combine the oats, almond milk, chia seeds, and the maple syrup. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, stir it well and enjoy! 

Optional: I added fruit to the top of mine for extra sweetness. This is only optional! Want her book? Check it out.. Balancing in heels

Supplements for beauty! Here are my top Favorites! 

Hi ladies!

Looking youthful and having a healthy glow doesn’t just come in topical lotions and good moisturizers. These days , maintaining good health and maintaining a youthful and healthy glow comes in drinks and supplements. The normal used to be that drinking your recommended daily amount of H2O will keep your skin glowing and healthy. As that fact is still true, you can now take supplements that are amazing for your skin, and can include all your greens, and an added probiotic all in one. I’m not going to sit here and tell you that it’s some magic potion, but what I will tell you is that since taking these supplements, I have seen a huge difference in my skin, and I have more energy through out the day. 

These below are what I take all the time. I do mix up a few, using my cleanse every other month. It’s good to add in a probiotic daily as it keeps your digestive system working properly and adding in good bacteria . 

The Beauty Chef .. The Glow powder

This particular powder is amazing. It is filled with natural and healthy ingredients and makes your skin glow from within. This powder is infused with 23 superfoods that give your skin such radiance . It’s packed full of antioxidants , vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids. On top of all that, it’s berry flavor is delicious. This particular powder can be picked up at Anthropologie, and I would give it atleast two weeks to really see a difference in your energy  levels and in your skin.  

Super Elixir by Welle Co. This particular green superfoods powder is the bomb. I have added this to my daily diet for the past six months, not missing a day. This powder has antioxidants, vitamins , minerals, Chinese herbs, probiotic, and so much more. I usually add it to water, but some people may think it’s too bitter. It can take some time to get used to, but believe me, once you do, you are going to see and feel such a difference. This powder is very alkalizing, and keeps your body’s PH level very alkaline, which helps fight inflammation. I advise this to everyone because it’s such an amazing product. I even take their nourishing protein which is also amazing. This can be ordered at Welle co

The last and most amazing non powder supplements in my opinion are by Hum nutrition. I can’t express how amazing these supplements are, and before you order , you can take their online quiz that helps you figure out which supplements are right for you. I take their daily cleanse atleast every two months. These are honestly amazing products , and they are all part of my daily regimen. I’ve seen huge differences in my whole body.

Summer is almost here.. It’s time to set goals and get healthy! 

Hi ladies! 

It’s amazing to know that summer is right around the corner, and it seems like Christmas just got over. Now is the time more than ever, to set those goals and get healthy and fit. There is still time to get in the best shape of your life, and set attainable goals. 

Get a journal! 

Start off by getting a journal , and writing your goals in there, and how you plan to achieve them. We all have them, and if you are one that has always worn a one piece bathing suit, and would love to get in that two piece for the first time , here is your chance!  Journaling every day has been a love of mine. It helps me keep track of the food I eat, and my workouts. It helps to look back and see just how well or how bad you’ve been eating. Start off by writing down your daily meals, or what you plan to eat. This will help you stay on track. 

Get moving! 

There is no time to waste. Pick the workouts you plan on doing or the classes you plan on attending , and make sure you get to them everyday. If you are one that loves yoga, plan on attending your yoga classes daily, or even bump it up to hot yoga once a week to burn some extra calories. It’s essential to set up a workout plan . If you feel you need to take one day off, make sure that you are working out all the other days. I make it a point to workout everyday , or attend one of my favorite classes. That’s exactly how I feel better, and get more things done. I not only feel better, but exercise clears my head, and just makes me feel so much healthier. If you feel your not a gym person, then find great workouts through Pinterest, or even through some wonderful apps that you can download. Body rock, is one of my all time favorites. You can download that onto your smart Tv , and do the workouts right in your living room. In today’s world , there are so many unique ways of getting that workout in. If you are a walker , and not a runner, make sure to walk everyday , and try working your way up to running. It can be done. 

Get some health food , and throw out the crap! 

Now is the time to set yourself up on a healthy way of eating. Throw out all the garbage that you have in your pantry or fridge, and replace with wholesome foods such as greens, veggies, fruits, seeds, nuts , and legumes. There are many ways to incorporate healthy meals into your days. Grab a good cookbook and start cooking. That’s the best way to start. You don’t have to be Emeril to be able to cook healthy. A good juice, or a good mixed vegetable salad can turn into one of your favorite meals. Figure out a healthy calorie intake to start with , to get your weight down. Healthy eating mixed with good exercise is the strategy for great success. Try to buy organic when possible. This will cut down on your intake of pesticides and residues, which are so much healthier.

Hydrate

I can’t stress this enough. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Fueling yourself with enough water is essential not only for good health, but for healthy weight loss. You may not even know on some days just how dehydrated you can be. I always have a water jug with me at all times. If you aren’t a water person, try adding in some different fruits to give it some taste. I love cucumbers and strawberries in my water. It’s very important that you take in enough water daily, especially if you are sweating. 

Applying these essentials to your daily plan of weight loss will get you to your goal weight , and will make you feel healthier than ever before. Now is the time to do it. We only get today. There is no better time to start than NOW! Your worth it!

Fred Segal.. The Blend review for Beauty

Hi ladies!

Do you ever find yourself over whelmed every time you go shop for perfume? To me , it has always been on the difficult side, or it seems very stressful at times. You spend so much time using your wrist as a tester, that you end up walking out of the store smelling a little bit crazy. Whether you are buying a perfume for a gift, or for yourself, it always seems over whelming. There are perfumes that are too harsh, or just too much on the citrus side. It seems it takes a good hour just to find that perfect aroma. I recently stumbled into Sephora, as usual, and found the Fred Segal The Blend Kit, and honestly fell in love. The amazing component about this kit, is that all the fragrances are oils ,and I absolutely love how they absorb into the skin. They provide you with all these amazing recipes, so that you can mix and match the oils you want, to come up with that perfect scent. The Blend

The oils are to die for. They all have their unique aroma, and whether you are looking for a scent that is more musky, or more on the sweeter side, you will find it. It is on the more pricier side. One vial prices for 25.00, but the whole kit can be bought for 150.00. This kit will last you a long time, because it doesn’t take much of these oils to give you that scent that will last for hours. This kit would make the perfect gift for any woman who loves a good oil perfume. I feel oil absorbs fairly quickly, and last a lot longer than the traditional spray -on perfume. I feel the spray perfumes can be a bit too much. I have walked by plenty of women that smell as if they just got done emptying the whole bottle of perfume on themselves. Today would be a great day to pick this amazing blend kit up. Enjoy! img_1351
