Makeup Au Naturale

I have loved playing with makeup since I discovered my mom’s beauty kit at the age of 7 and applied her ruby red lipstick. By the age of 12, I bought my very first makeup. Since then, I have had a love affair with trying on makeup, even though I hardly wore any out of […]

Dirty Dozen & Clean Fifteen

Trying to eat as clean as possible can be a daunting task with so much talk of ‘super foods’ versus toxic foods floating around. Today we know that eating organic food is the most healthful choice because these foods are grown as close to the most natural state as possible. Buying organic, especially for large […]

Understanding Nutrition Labels

I know how confusing nutrition labels can be. Unfortunately, I have a strong distaste for the way the Food & Drug Administration do things and nutrition labels is one. I have taken countless nutrition courses throughout my time at university, but the nutritional facts are something that I never enjoyed learning. In high school, I […]

Run Faster and Jump Higher!

Growing up I had these cute pink Vans and my older brother had some in blue. He told me that they made you run faster and jump higher so we tested that out by racing each other. He would always win but I was convinced I felt faster in these “special shoes.” Today, a killer […]

Yummy Vegan Tacos

Bueno dias! This post is dedicated to my sister as she keeps me in line regarding my blogging. I have so many ideas I want to post but I want the perfect photo or the perfect write-up and then I become overwhelmed and as a result my posting becomes infrequent. Trust me I want nothing […]

Finding Inspiration

I am back! After going on a girls trip to Bangkok, I found myself in a rut. I couldn’t find the motivation to write, regardless of my journal full of ideas. I know most of my discouraging and negativity is all in my head, but I couldn’t help myself. Considering I am in the best […]

Coco for Coconut

Coconut oil has been a staple for me, but I don’t consume the oil. I don’t cook with oils, and who am I kidding? I hardly cook at all! I use coconut oil for nearly everything but cooking or consumption. I use it every day as a body moisturizer, face wash, and weekly mixed with baking […]

Mood Board

It is no surprise that I absolutely love Pinterest, magazines, and blogs. I love the pictures, the articles, and the endless inspiration. I simply can’t stop thinking about it all. Living in Singapore, I don’t have a study or office space so I keep my beautiful and inspiring clippings locked up in a folder. Unfortunately, […]

Stretching is not just for Yogis

Who knew stretching is just as beneficial to your body as exercise? Well, growing up I certainly didn’t. In fact, stretching before track meets and soccer games consisted of social time while lifting your legs here and there. Today however, I long to be more flexible and limber. I have the tightest hamstrings and when […]

Energy Fix

Finding energy when you need it can be quite challenging. I remember the days when I couldn’t consider myself awake until I had a large cup of coffee, or two. Even in high school I would pop energy pills in exchange for all-night study sessions. Admittedly, I have learned the error of my ways. Now, […]
