It seems that Spring completely by passed us with the heat that we have been having. I’m Ok with it. How about you? The one thing I love about Summer is shopping for cute Summer clothes. I’m loving the maxi dresses this summer with the bright color patterns. I’m also loving the off the shoulder dresses and tops that look super cute with a great skirt and wedges. Summer is one of my favorite seasons, and it’s fun to mess around with fashion while enjoying it. What are some of your favorite summer fashion trends this year? The loafers are another hit this season. You can find an array of them ranging from neutral colors to the brightest pink. I recently picked up the beautiful Valentino Rock Stud sandels. They are adorable, and who doesn’t love Valentino? They are the best when it comes to fashion. One of my all time favorite clothing boutiques is Vici Collection . They are adorned with the cutest dresses, skirts and jumpsuits you ever seen. I can’t stop looking at their clothes. It seems they have something new out everyday.

The photo below is a great dress by Vici collection. It is a denim material that drapes over the shoulders and ties in the back. This is perfect for a summer cookout or even a nice wine night at home. I paired this dress with some great Tory Burch Sandels . This dress could basically go with some great beige heels too. Check out Vici Collection for their newest and most beautiful collection for the season. I promise you , you will find things you love. Vici collecton Valentino Rockstuds

Traveling is so fun , and when doing it , it’s important to make a list of all the essentials that you need so that you are fully prepared for your flight, and it’s more comfortable for you.  The most annoying thing about a flight is when you are tired and forgot your head rest or super cold and are short a blanket. Who likes that ? I have many items that I pack with me for my flights and I feel some of these things could come in handy for  you also.

Evian Facial Mist – This is perfect for long flights and literally gives your skin some freshness. This is the perfect mist to throw in your bag and use through out your flight. Long flights can make your skin so dry, and in return can make your skin itch and flare up. Keep the skin moisturized and fresh through out your flight.

Hydrating Crème- I like to keep hydrating crème on hand for applying to my skin through out the flight. It keeps your facial skin in tact and will feel so much better once you land. A great Hydrating crème that I love is Ole Hendrickson Nurture Me crème. This is the bomb. It has such a great consistency to it and makes your skin feel like a million dollars.

Travel Pillow – This is a MUST! Traveling without a pillow is a pain. You will get tired or want to be relaxed, and not having a headrest is so uncomfortable. This also reduces strain on your neck. Great travel pillows can be found at Amazon Prime . They have many different ones to pick from. travel must haves by pexel

 

Traveling is so fun, but if you are flying for a long period of time, it’s best to feel as comfortable as possible. This means making a list of some things that will make your flight most comfortable.

I am a huge avocado lover. Matter of fact, my family jokes with me on how many avocados I eat in a day. One of my favorite breakfast choices is my avocado toast. It is healthy and it is great fuel for any morning workout. It provides you with great , healthy fats and avocados are loaded with amazing monounsaturated fatty acids. This amazing fruit provides us with 20 vitamins and minerals. Yes! We are getting our vitamin intake. Here is my take on amazing avocado toast.pexels for avocado toast

I use Ezekiel bread which is made of sprouted whole grains, and seeds. It’s not one of those breads you find in the stores that is loaded with fillers, and flour. It provides you with more protein, fiber, and vitamins and minerals. It contains no phytic acid, and is not concentrated with large amount of gluten. I go ahead and put that in the toaster. While my bread is toasting, I take a small avocado ( organic preferable) and slice and cut. I then mash the avocado and mix a bit of pepper, and onion powder to it. Make sure you take it easy on the onion powder. I don’t use much at all. Once that is mixed up and mashed really well, I spread on my toast. I then add a great mixed red pepper flake spice to the top of it, and add a bit more black pepper. I do add some great herbs to it once in a while, and then I eat with either a boiled egg, or a fried egg made only with coconut oil. It is so yummy. If you are looking for a great, quick breakfast option, this avocado toast is not only delicious, but so super healthy for your body. It is imperative you eat healthy breakfasts to give you the proper fuel to get your morning going . Happy Thursday!

Skin Breakouts are the worse. They can ruin a good night out, and the fact that you are probably using some sort of skin care makes you think that maybe its just not working for you. Skin Breakouts can happen any time and for a variety of reasons. It can happen at any age, and sometimes breakouts can be due to eating foods that you may be allergic to, or e even using skincare that has some ingredients that your skin isn’t to fond of. Skin breakouts can also be due to hormones and that time of the month.  I feel that what you put on the inside of your body also reflects on the outside. I see people who drink so much water and their skin glows. I’ve seen people that eat horrible, and their skin has flare-ups. It doesn’t hurt to add some amazing foods to your diet to help with those breakouts. Here are my top foods for helping with breakouts.

Salmon- Salmon is full of healthy fat, and omega 3’s. Its great for the skin, and studies show that healthy fats are good at helping give skin that glow. 

Pumpkin- Did you know that pumpkin has amazing qualities for the skin? That is why we see so many pumpkin face masks, and pumpkin eye masks. They literally give skin so many vitamins. 

Blueberries- Blueberries are loaded with antioxidants and are perfect for working from the inside. They are packed with Vitamin C, and helps with collagen production.

Guava and papaya- These exotic fruits are loaded with Vitamin C. Vitamin C is crucial for fighting and combating breakouts. The more you have, the better it becomes. 

Do not worry about breakouts. You are probably experiencing the occasional breakout. If so, try adding more of these foods into your diet. If not, and its reoccurring, I would check in with a dermatologist to determine if maybe you have allergies.
