My Thoughts on Eating Healthy

Recently I have decided to change my eating habits because of a lot of things that I feel processed foods cause. Our food industry really needs to change. We need to have more local farms so that we don’t have to ingest chemicals that are used to preserve foods and stimulate quicker growth. The statement we are what we eat is very true.

I also believe that society encourages us to eat even when we aren’t hungry. Just count the food commercials in a 1 hour period that you see on TV, on social media. Most of the foods that are shown to us are processed. Recently I was inspired to pick up some items to make a fruit salad. (FYI: I follow @alphafoodie and @queenofgreen on Instagram) I picked up some mangoes, strawberries blueberries raspberries came home cut them all up made a great salad. I wished I’d taken a picture of my salad to share with you. I felt so refreshed my mind was much clearer after eating that salad, I was not drowsy as I would feel if I had processed food. This was an amazing feeling for me!

There are also other things that contribute to us not having/making healthy choices. Things like our lifestyle, work, stress… a lot of these we can change some contributing factors we can’t for example genetics.

CHANGE is hard but we can do it!

Here are some visual inspiration for you:

Kate Spade

Today we lost a talented, bright posh fashion designer Kate Spade ♠️

She started out designing handbags that were simple and elegant. I loved the simple and bright colors of the items she designed. She brought a lot of happiness not only to me as a person but to a lot of people in the world.

I am sad that she is gone and even more sad that she left her 13 year old daughter behind. Although we do not know why she apparently committed suicide, we must remember to love and love hard. Always say and do things to uplift someone, be kind always. We never know what’s going on in a persons life no matter how much or how little fame and money they have.

You maybe the brightest person for someone and not know it.

LOVE is FREE!

What do I love most about Spring?

Well its spring time again! Spring  makes me feel like its a new year. Trees and flowers are blooming and blossoming, and this triggers me to look at my life goals.

Most recently I have decided that I want to have more meaningful experiences in life. Up until this time, I have worked and not really experienced the world the way that I would like to.

Some of the people that inspire my actions are Gary Vaynerchuk AKA GaryVee, and Tim Ferriss. In order to accomplish your life goals you will have to change your mindset, and surround yourself with like-minded individuals. Check out this article from success.com

So yes, welcome spring! and welcome change!

Favorite Moisturizers

Winter is oficially over! (although it does not quite feel that way). Anyhow one of the most important things that you must do is moisturize your skin during the colder months.

Did you know that the skin is the largest organ in your body it takes up about 16% of your body. Winter weather does cause your skin to dry out because there is less humidity in the air, SO you should moisturize your skin religiously. Our face for those of us who love to wear makeup takes a beating with not only the dry air but the different products that we apply to the face.

Below are some of the moisturizers that I have tried and found to be awesome!

You can find these products at Sephora or Ulta
