Fit Friday: Ch Ch Ch Cherry Milk

Woohoo we made it to Friday! Summers are always packed for me so the weeks just seem to fly by. I haven’t forgotten about a Greece recap post, it’s honestly just a matter of compiling the photos from 5 adults and sifting through to make some sort of cohesive summary-taking a little long, but I will get there! In the meantime, I wanted to explore a recent thing that I’ve found myself doing post-dinner that is not only a fit tip but also a wellness tip and I thought it may be useful for you guys too. I’m sure I’m […]

No longer reserved for classic necklaces and earrings, pearls are being utilized in a variety of interesting ways.

You can find pearls on the ingredient list of powders, supplements, beauty products and more. So what is it about pearls that would make us want to ingest them and spread all over our faces?

Wellness Wednesday: Toxic Beauty, What Are You Applying To Your Skin?

I am a creature of habit and one thing I do not skip is applying a daily moisturizer. For as long as I can remember I have applied lotion all over my body post-shower EVERY single time no matter what. I have a thing with dry skin, it’s itchy, doesn’t look great and I’m convinced it ages you faster. While I’m consistent with the application and pride myself for being on top of this self-care ritual, I can’t say I was always careful with checking what ingredients were in my lotion. Lotion doesn’t just sit on top of our skin, […]

Wellness Wednesday: Trippin’ On Shrooms

Mushrooms are having a moment in the health and wellness industry. No longer are they categorized as just fancy infused oils, pizza toppings or for psychedelic trips, they are impacting wellness in a major way. Mushrooms are a good source of B vitamins, which help provide energy in the body by breaking down proteins, fats, and carbs. Aside from vitamins, mushrooms are also high in important minerals including selenium (which works as an antioxidant) and potassium (which helps control blood pressure & support our muscles and organs). Below I’ve outlined some common forms being utilized today: Mushroom Coffee Benefits: made from […]

Wellness Wednesday: 5 Reasons You’ll Go Maca For Maca

The Maca root is not something new and I touched upon it’s impressive benefits in an earlier post. To be honest I have only recently gotten into using it in my smoothies. When I discovered some of its amazing properties I wanted to spotlight it on MSF for those who are just jumping on the bandwagon and may want a little more info. It originated in Peru and is part of the radish family although it is commonly ground into a powder and consumed as a supplement or mixed into smoothies. The benefits of this root have been celebrated by ancient civilizations […]

Wellness Wednesday: Yes, they’re REAL

There are so many smoke and mirrors these days it’s hard to keep things straight on what is authentic and what is enhanced. I am not against anyone doing something that makes them feel better or gives them more confidence but I am ALL for trying things the natural way first. Before my wedding I was frantic about getting the healthiest hair, toned arms, white teeth and long eyelashes. Because lets face it, there is nothing more feminine and pretty than long beautiful lashes. I never tried eyelash extensions and was never a big fan of the glue-on false eyelashes […]

Wellness Wednesday: Egg-tastic Natural Dyes

Spring is in the air and to get in the festive spirit I’ve been thinking of ways to brighten up the house, changing the décor to cheerful and lighter colors/fabrics and of course preparing fun recipes for the upcoming holiday I’ll be celebrating with the fam. When I think of Spring I think of bunnies, flowers and of course coloring eggs. However, using toxic dye to color these eggs brings the light springtime music in my head to an abrupt- screeching halt. I started thinking of ways to naturally dye eggs and got the idea from my toothbrush one morning. I […]

Wellness Wednesday: Top 5 Benefits of Vinegar

I’m not sure when I started, although I’m confident to say I’ve been doing it for at least two years. A shot of vinegar in my morning lemon water and dousing veggies or salad with the tangy goodness any chance I get. Vinegar can be an acquired taste and something you need to get used to (especially if you are not familiar with it’s assertive flavor) but I urge you to get on board…like now. Browse Pinterest, Google, or ask any relative and you are sure to find home remedies and claims of its intense healing or cleaning powers. Personally, […]

Fit Friday: No Muffin Top Muffins

The rain we’ve been getting in southern California has been making me want to stay inside drinking tea with cozy blankets, reading and snuggling my fur baby Finley. It has also been putting me in the mood to bake, especially things to go with my tea and coffee in the morning. I tried out a few recipes to incorporate things I had on hand and I was pretty excited about the results. So of course I had to share! These muffins are too yummy to notice they are healthy and hit all the right things you look for in a […]

Wellness Wednesday: Cinnamon & Spice

If you’ve made some of my recipes, followed my Instagram or Snapchat story then you may have noticed I’m a major cinnamon fan. When I first became interested in nutrition, I read that cinnamon helps regulate blood sugar and I’ve sprinkled it on everything since! Besides the benefits of stabilizing your blood sugar, I wanted to go deeper and investigate some other benefits (there’s got to be a reason this spice has stood the test of time!). As I read, I began to see tons of benefits this spice can have for our skin. So why not look for a […]
