This is my first spring in New York City so, of course, I want to get the most out of it. Now that businesses are reopening, there’s so much to do and see.

The Beauty Products I Buy On Repeat

I’m often sent various beauty products to test out. From serums, to creams, to masks, I’m always looking to discover new things. To be completely honest though, because I’m so picky about what I put on my skin, I’ll usually end up using it once or twice and then giving it away. The items which I’ve highlighted below are the beauty products I can’t live without and buy on repeat. I’ve been using most of these for years, so I know they work. Cleanser Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser. ($22) A facial cleanser needs to achieve three things in order for me to continue rebuying it.Read More →

The Athletic Apparel I Can’t Get Enough Of

While I’ve recently jumped back into working out full time and rejoined a gym (after taking almost a year off), there were a few things I needed in terms of athletic apparel. The week before I planned to return, I went through my drawer where I keep all my gym clothes. As I sorted through my leggings, shorts, and tops, I realized most of it was over a year old and looked like it had been through a lot. I turned to one of my go-to brands and stocked up on a few essentials, which I’ve highlighted below. There’s just something about getting new workoutRead More →

Healthy Lifestyle Choices: Returning to The Gym a Year Later

Last week I was reading an old blog post I wrote back in 2018. It was a list of fitness tips that I had discovered over the years. In it, I detailed the various things I did that led me to make healthy lifestyle choices and kick ass in the gym. Fast forward three years and things have changed dramatically. Before last week, I hadn’t stepped inside a gym in almost a year. As soon as the gyms (and everything else) shut down in Los Angeles, I purchased a treadmill, dumbbells, and resistance bands and did my best to have a decent workout inside myRead More →

15 Minute No Bake Protein Brownie Bars

The other day @unicornsuperfoods reposted a delicious looking recipe for no bake protein brownie bars. Ever since I saw it, I have been dying to try them. Aside from the Unicorn Superfood protein powder (that I already had) the recipe required only five ingredients. Yesterday, I made them and couldn’t believe what little time it took (under 15 minutes). Instead of following the exact recipe, I used chocolate fudge protein powder rather than vanilla cake. If you’re in need of an energy boost, these plant-based brownie bars are a decadent afternoon pick me up or an ideal pre-workout snack! You will need: 1 cup darkRead More →

How to Heal Your Dry and Cracked Hands Once and For All

Every winter like clockwork, my hands become dry and cracked. This is something I’ve dealt with year after year (even when I lived in Los Angeles and it was significantly warmer than the East Coast). It starts around October and lasts until April or when the weather begins to warm up. If I slack off on applying lotion, I’ll get painful cuts all over my hands (especially on my knuckles). I’ve come to accept that it’s a side effect of winter caused by a lack of humidity in the air and over-washing my hands. Over the years I can’t begin to count the various lotions,Read More →

Winter Coat Guide: 36 Styles I’m Loving This Season

One of the best things about moving back to the East Coast is being able to purchase cold weather clothing and accessories and actually wear them more than a few times each year. When I lived in L.A. I’d vacation here for a few weeks in December. Immediately upon returning to the California sunshine and winters of 75 degrees or warmer my cold weather clothing got pushed to the back of my closet. As I created this winter coat guide filled with my favorite picks, I was sure to include a variety of styles, colors, textures, and price points. Here are 36 coats that willRead More →

The Healthy Snacks at The Top of My Shopping List

In November I moved to New York City and lived in an empty apartment for about two weeks. During that time it was much easier to order an Impossible burger on Postmates than grocery shop and make something healthy. I told myself that after the holidays were over I would get back on track, and here we are. On January 1st, I committed to making positive changes to my lifestyle by working out three to four times a week (something that’s important to me but I’ve slacked off on recently), drinking more water, transferring my plant-based meal delivery service from L.A. to NYC, and snackingRead More →
