mamma chia snack review

grab and go mamma chia

Remember when you thought after college you’d be working a 9-5 and life would be so easy? Wrong. If only we knew back then what busy really meant. I recall the days contemplating the challenge of writing a 3 page paper over a weekend. Now I’m lucky if that’s all I have to do in a night after the office! I always knew life was motion, but who knew it was a freight train on high-speed. And to be honest, I wouldn’t change a thing. Somehow I still manage the time to graze my favorite fashion blog sites, travel bites and find inspiration at every corner. How do I make time for it all? Finding the little things in life that can shave off a few moments here and there, and resorting to habits that can keep up with my lifestyle. A new such discovery I’m loving for healthy living on the go – Chia Squeezes, by Mamma Chia. photography: KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | snacks for healthy living c/o:MAMMA CHIA Though I try to live a healthy lifestyle, balancing …

the anti new year’s resolution with grana activewear

Sticking with your New Year’s resolutions? Giving up pizza and chocolate, going to the gym and waking up to do your hair every morning? There’s a lot of pressure in following up with your first-of-the-year zeal. And a bit of pressure can be good. It keeps you motivated – pushing for a goal. It inspires you to be better, the best version of yourself. Too much pressure on the other hand does nothing more than leave you frustrated from over zealous goals. Finding balance is what truly leads to success in your endeavors. That’s why I’ve joined with Grana in spreading a different approach to fitness with their brand new line of activewear. Their mission: timeless styles, and a healthy lifestyle by setting your own pace. photography:BRITNEY LEIGH PHOTOGRAPHY | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | sport crop c/o:GRANA | activewear leggings c/o:GRANA   #setyourownpace is Grana’s campaign to end needless New Year’s frustrations by encouraging people to live healthier at a pace they can keep up with. It’s not about being perfect, it’s about being the best version of …

eating clean for 21 days with the organic, vegan Veestro challenge

Disclaimer: I’m not by any means a vegan, and though I try to eat healthy for the most part, there’s not much I can do about resisting a 12oz ribeye and stack of macaroni and cheese. I’m only human after all. I do however, my best at purchasing only organic foods when they’re available, and try to stick to what I would consider a clean diet (non-processed foods). Veggies are at the top of my food pyramid, and aside from water and wine – a cold pressed juice or sparkling kombucha are my go-to drinks of choice. The biggest hurdle in sticking to a healthy diet – limit on time. Sure when I cook I incorporate fresh greens, lean meats and a well balanced array of nutrients (don’t we all at least try to do that?). But working a full-time job, balancing the blog and a personal life makes health and fitness another task that’s difficult to always pencil in. That’s why I was excited when I friend of mine reached out and introduced Veestro. …

new years resolutions 101 and how to stick with them

Just kidding, if I had the answer to that I’d have flat 6 pack abs from a rigorous active routine, be juicing every morning, and actually be taking the time to do my hair on weekdays. Let’s face it, we all struggle with meeting the expectations that are put on us by friends, family, coworkers and worse – ourselves. And there’s no other time that’s more apparent than New Years. Somehow inspired by the unmarked calendar, people gaze steadily forward. Sure that this time, they’re going to follow through. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not discouraging you. In fact, New Year’s is one of my favorite holidays as it represents a fresh start, new beginnings and yes – New Years resolutions. I quite savor the time of year to look forward with an untarnished canvas laying before me. But it’s important to remember amidst your ambitions, not to get lost in trying to become someone whom we are not, or becoming discouraged when we fail. Though I can admit to often falling in line with …
