Counting calories. Yay or nay?

Aug
18

The idea of counting calories always seemed like a pain in the ass, tbh. With the Fitbit and Apple watches of the world all seem great to help jumpstart a healthy mind and lifestyle, they’re not ideal for the money conscious population. Out of curiosity, I decided to download Fooducate, a free app, and am surprised to say that I’m not only more educated about what I put into this body of mine but slightly addicted to this new life(style).

For those who share my struggle…the fast food/ junk food addiction, I’m sure you can imagine how hard it is to see your favorite food rated with the lowest food grade (graded on an A through D scale). It’s not that we aren’t aware of how bad the food is that we put into our bodies, but we’re not aware of what they can do to us. In the app’s nutrition tab, it tells you what alarming ingredients are in your food but also offers better food suggestions.

Guys, let me just tell you… I’ve struggled with maintaining a healthy weight for my size but being able to monitor what I eat singlehandedly put everything into proportion and I’m on my way to my (now foreseeable) weight goal.

Fooducate makes it truly easy and with that being said, I dare you all to try it. If the intention is not to lose weight but to become more educated, there’s nothing to lose! Cheers x

FALL IN

Nov

Fall In

 

Fall is no doubt my favorite season of the year. Perhaps it’s because here in California, where the sun always shines, it’s finally socially acceptable to wear boots, suede and a hat all together. I always opt for premium basics when I can so that they last throughout the season such as the sleek and ever-transitional acne boots pictured above. Additionally, an outfit would not be fully complete without the proper accessory. My go-to accessory of the season is the Ray-ban RB3517 51mm from Salt City Optics. Something about this shape is perfectly reminiscent of the 70s trend and pairs well with just about anything.

Exclusive to my readers, Salt City Optics has offered an amazing deal–  you’re able to receive exclusive access to a special 25% off discount on full prescription sunglasses orders (meaning lens and frame) by using promo code FALLFASHION25 at check out.

Traveling down PCH is one of my favorite things to do on a perfect Spring afternoon. From sunset to sundown, Newport Beach is such a beautiful sight to see.

APARTMENT BY THE LINE

Apartment by the line

Happy first day of Spring! To start this new season, I took a short trip down to SoHo to the Apartment by the Line in hopes to find some major interior design inspiration. Spring prompts us to not only do some spring cleaning in our homes and apartments but to do a bit of re-design to add a fresh new flavor to our surroundings.

Lusting over everything from their luxurious leather chairs with fur details to their clawfoot tub to their IMPECCABLE walk in closet with nothing but designer duds from Altuzarra, Oliver Peoples & Common Projects and more, it was truly every fashion-savvy girl’s dream.

The Apartment by the Line has most definitely become my favorite conceptual design space and I highly recommend stopping by for a visit if ever in the SoHo area.
