| Suja Protein Juice |

        If you’re like me, then you’ve spent an embarrassingly long time at your local grocery store hunting for a healthy drink that didn’t make you want to vomit. (Props to all of you that drink kombucha). Yesterday, I stumbled across this protein juice and decided to give this healthy drink goal one last try. To my surprise, I finished the entire bottle and actually enjoyed the taste! (I just had to get used to the almost grainy texture.) Let’s have our goal be to nourish our bodies with food that truly fuels us because we are WORTH it!

 

ºSuja Twilight Protein Juice: This juice is an organic mixture of apples, strawberries, almond milk, bananas, pea protein, chia seeds, rice milk and vanilla and is the evening drink in Suja’s One-Day Renewal Organic Juice program. It contains 10g of vegan protein and is USDA Certified Organic, Non-GMO, Kosher, dairy free, soy free, gluten free, and has no added sweeteners! I picked mine up from my local Kroger. But these juices are actually available for purchase right off of the Suja website!

| Warm and Cool Tones |

 

 

One trend that I am already loving this season is wearing a mixture of warm and cool tones. Not only does the color contrast really pop, but this style looks great on all skin tones! Here’s a tip, if you’re just starting to dabble with warm and cool tones, try wearing complimentary colors. (yellow + purple, orange + blue) and then work your way to pairing other tones! Also, don’t be afraid to mix a patterned top with

In this picture, I’m wearing two very distinct pieces but your warm and cool toned look could be as simple as different colored accessories with a solid color tee! If you have a favorite warm and cool tone look, comment down below!

ºPom Pom Off the Shoulder TopThe top that is linked is not the exact one pictured but is very similar (I bought mine at Marshalls!). The off the shoulder look is huge this season as well as fun pom poms that add the perfect detail to any outfit! My style tip would be to buy one size up on off-the-shoulder tops so that it won’t pop off your shoulders every time you move your arms!

There are other affordable tops like the one pictured that you can pick up from

Forever 21 or Target!

ºMustard Colored Shorts: I recently picked these up from Loft and have fallen in love with the way that they fit! Not only are they super comfortable, but they are easily dressed up or down depending on what you pair them with. These shorts offer the perfect warm tone to pair with any cool color.

Gap or Target!

ºGladiator SandalsThe shoes that are linked are not the exact ones pictured, but are the same style and brand. I picked these sandals up from J.C. Penny two years ago and still haven’t run out of looks to pair them with. These shoes go great with a casual summer outfit, like the one pictured, or with a sundress!

| On-the-Go|

 

Now that it is officially summertime, it’s time to rethink our leggings and pullover on-the-go look (one of my personal favorites for cold months). It can be really hard for some women, especially mothers, to find that perfect balance of not looking like they are still in pajamas but also not looking like they are trying too hard. For this reason, I’ve decided to give you guys an example of a simple, everyday outfit that is easy to throw on but looks put together enough to run errands in all day. Remember that no matter WHAT you’re wearing, the most beautiful thing about you is what is on the INSIDE!

If you have a favorite on-the-go look, feel free to comment down below!

ºKeds Baseball CapI love this hat because it is affordable and the solid color matches with almost any outfit. I wear this one with a pony, as pictured, or with a low messy bun. If you’re looking for other options of solid colored hats, I would check out Nordstrom,     H & M, or Target!

ºNike Women’s V-NeckThis shirt is great for a workout at the gym, for a quick run, or for a comfortable shirt to run errands in. It is lightweight and easy to pair with just about anything. If you’re looking for a different style t-shirt, Nike has a lot of great workout shirts out right now!

ºThin Black Belt: Really any brand will do for this accessory! This adds just a little bit of detail that really pulls the entire outfit together. You can pick one up for yourself at Old Navy or Target!

ºOld Navy Denim ShortsAgain, any brand of shorts will do the trick for this look. I suggest wearing a slightly longer pair than you would normally wear to a day at the beach simply because you will be bending and moving while loading and unloading your car all day and you should have the comfort of knowing that you’re covered! (Nobody wants to see that!!!) If you’re looking for a more bermuda style short, check out Gap or Maurices!

ºNike Free Run FlyknitThese are by far the most comfortable pair of tennis shoes that I have ever owned. I know that Nikes are a little bit more on the expensive side, but trust me, you will get plenty of use out of them! These are great for a training day at the gym or for a day that you will be on your feet for several hours.

 

 

|Go-To Palettes |

While I know there are extremely nice eyeshadow palettes out on the market today,

(Such as the MAC and Laura Mercier), I love trying to find more affordable products that are in some ways comparable to the more expensive brands. Now there is a definite difference in quality between these products and high-end products, but here are two more affordable palettes that act as a great substitute if you’re looking to save a few bucks!

ºL’oréal La Palette Nude 1This palette retails for only $20 and contains both matte and shimmery shades which allow you to accomplish different looks all with the same palette. It comes with a nice sized mirror and its own eyeshadow brush! (Although, you should know the brush is not the best quality so I tend to use some EcoTools brushes). This palette is perfect for everyday wear and has become one of the staples in my makeup routine!

It is also available for purchase at Target, Walmart, and Ulta.

º Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics: This palette retails for $30 and has the quality of a full-sized Urban Decay palette but is less expensive. This palette contains six matte colors and a nice sized personal mirror. Each and every shade has amazing color payoff and is very blendable and it has become one of my very favorite makeup products. If you’re looking to give yourself a smoky eye for a night out or a softer look for your job, this is the palette for you!

This palette is also available for purchase at Sephora and Ulta!

| Face Mask |

I recently used the last bit of my Mask of Magnaminty face mask from LUSH! Everyone who knows me knows that I am obsessed with this company and with their commitment to hand-make all-natural products. I truly believe that the Earth provides everything that we need to heal and treat our skin! This particular face mask contains evening primrose seeds, kaolin clay and peppermint oil to clean your pores along with ground aduki beans that exfoliate your dry skin! Not only this, but also this face mask contains vanilla absolute and honey which calms redness, soothes and moisturizes your skin. I purchased this awhile ago and got about 7-10 uses out of it (which is great for the price of this product!) I normally use this mask one to two times a week and I can literally see a difference in my skin. Being that I have sensitive, acne-prone skin, I was so excited to find a product that was gentle enough to not make my skin freak yet effective enough to clear my mini breakouts! If you have used this product or if you have a face mask you want me to try out next, comment down below!

| Love Yourself |

If you’re looking for a simple way to improve your strength, stamina, and overall health, then look no further! This 30 Day Shred is one of my absolute favorites for a quick and effective at-home workout. Jillian Michaels has a way of motivating me that I hope helps you too! The DVD includes three different 20 minute workouts that go from beginner level strength and stamina to advanced so that you can gradually build your strength as you work out. One of the great things about this program is that you do not need to go out and purchase a lot of equipment to complete these workouts. Jillian combines a focus on strength, cardio, and abs to give you an amazing full body challenge. Comment below your favorite at-home workout!

 I am a firm believer in the importance of working out not necessarily to lose weight but to take care of your body. You are IMPORTANT and you are WORTH IT! Don’t let working out intimidate you. I think you will be shocked at how much peace you will feel emotionally and spiritually when you take care of your physical being. YOU CAN DO IT!

I believe in you.

The 30 Day Shred is also available at Walmart, Barnes and Noble, and Ebay.
