Carbon Coco

Sunday, February 11, 2018



If there is one thing I am sure of, it's my smile. I brush my teeth twice a day, floss, and gargle with mouthwash in my attempt to keep my pearly whites pearly and white.

I drink coffee throughout the day and I am always concerned about the color of my teeth. Coffee is notorious for giving teeth a yellow brownish tint so I am constantly looking for ways to prevent this from happening. 

I  have to admit that I have been blessed with whiter teeth in general but I've tried a lot of products to keep them white. Whitening toothpastes, gels and trays, and treatments. When I discovered Carbon Coco I was intrigued. Was keeping my teeth white really going to be this simple? No trays? No gels? No sensitivity? Alrighty... it was worth a try. 

It was well worth it! Carbon Coco is an activated charcoal product that has four super duper easy steps. 
  1. Dip your wet toothbrush into the activated charcoal tooth polish and brush for three minutes 
  2. Rinse
  3. Brush with activated charcoal toothpaste for three minutes 
  4. Rinse
 
 
   
TA-DA! THAT'S IT!! Easy right? And I loved it. It's best to use the products for at least 14 days to see the best results, but I honestly saw results after about one week. 

You have to try these products because they are well worth it!

Wholeme Clusters

Wednesday, January 31, 2018

Last year a friend told me about an eating plan called Whole30. I hate to call it a diet because it really wasn't. I didn't deprive myself of anything. I didn't focus on portions or what time I was eating. All I had to do was make sure I ate foods that were on the Whole30 list. EASY PEASY. No sugar, no dairy, no grains, and no legumes. I loved it because I could eat all the foods I loved still. Meat, fruit and vegetables.  The goal is to make sure you are eating whole foods. No replacements either! 

The benefit of Whole30 is that is an anti-inflammatory eating plan. I saw my skin, hair, nails, and body all change just by what I was eating. I suffer from really bad sinus infections and after doing two weeks of Whole30 my sinus headaches went away. I even saw my bad dandruff clear up while doing Whole30. 

I'll be honest and say I struggled a little because there were times when I felt like I needed something sweet. That's why I am so glad I discovered these delicious snacks from Wholeme!   I recently discovered these sweet treats and they're so good! Super tasty and almost Whole30 compliant. Very little sugar, no dairy, and especially no grains! These are perfect for your transition back into regular foods. 

There are four flavors. Each has something different and special so I figured I would share with you how I like to eat each of the different clusters. 

The Lemon Berry Chia is light and fresh. They're perfect for an afternoon pick me up. I shared them with some friends and they all agreed that these clusters were perfect for those moments when you need a little something to get you through the day. Now add a cup of tea and you're all set! 

The Almond Coconut was delicious with fruit! I am always on the go and looking for something that I can grab on the way out of the door. These are perfect for breakfast on the go. Throw some fruit, a little yogurt, and these babies in a bowl and you are on your way.

Salted Peanut Chocolate..I'll repeat...SALTED. PEANUT. CHOCOLATE. Yes that's correct! Who doesn't love peanut butter? Who doesn't love chocolate? Now sprinkle a little salt on it to tie it all together and you got a deal. These are the perfect snack with an evening espresso. 
OK the Cinnamon Banana are my absolute favorite!  Now don't get me wrong the others are wonderful too, but there is something about cinnamon that's just so good! I had these for breakfast with bananas and kiwi but I really didn't need anything with them at all. They are just THAT GOOD! 

So here's what I think. You all need to run out to the grocery store and grab a few packs of Wholeme Clusters and start keeping them in your pantries, your desk and even your car! These are healthly snacks that will hit the spot when need a little sweetness to put you over.

Hunting Season

Sunday, January 21, 2018

Dress: c/o REBDOLLS//Pumps: Calvin Klein//Necklace: old//Watch: Michael Kors
Earrings: Banana Republic

Not to be mean, but thank goodness it's not super cold in LA right now. The Midwest and Eastcoast are going through a super snow storm, and I am not sure I would handle it well. I keep seeing posts on social media about 39 degree or 20 degree weather. OH MY GOODNESS THAT IS COLD! I am the girl who runs her heater in the spring and summer at night because it's too cold, so anything less than 55 degrees is super chilly. I don't do very well in cold temps. The good news is that I'm able to wear this dress and not freeze my butt off! 

I've been working hard and pushing myself in my spin classes, so putting this dress on and feeling great was wonderful. Sometimes I forget who I am and allow myself to get caught up in ridiculous feelings about something I have absolutely no control over. Thank God that didn't last long...lol. 

This dress is called 'Huntress'. How perfect right? It's crazy how the name of a dress can completely embody how it makes you feel when you have it on. It was almost as if a wave came over me when I pulled it over my head... silly I know, but very true. Looks like I found another great dress for date night. Let the hunting begin!
