I’m already on my way back to Boston from Los Angeles. I have been out here for an entire week and it flew by as usual! I’m shooting a series of videos for an upcoming project. As a blogger, I get sent different clothing items to try out. For my shoot though, I wanted to […]

I timed my latest trip to Los Angeles just in time to miss a giant storm that has walloped Boston once again. I landed Thursday night and have been nonstop ever since. Friday morning, I woke up 4:30am for a 6am call time with Listerine. I shot a bundh of video back in January with […]

I’ve been a fan of juice cleanses for the past 2 years. I use them as an opportunity to reset my cravings usually. I also use them to debloat so that my face looks leaner on camera if I’ve been consuming too much alcohol, sugar, dairy or gluten leading up to a shoot. I have […]

I like knowing where my ingredients come from and making them at home satisfies my craving. Unlike it’s restaurant counterpart, this recipe has zero […]

I love eating vegetarian a few times a week. As Michael Pollan famously said, “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” Eating vegetarian is also cheaper than buying meat for most meals. I love buying packs of veggie burgers as a way to make sure that I’m getting enough protein since I’m terrible at cooking […]

Who doesn’t love pizza right? While I admit I only order it if I’m hungover (because it tastes so much better), I enjoy making my own healthier versions regularly at home for an on the go snack especially if my nephews are in town.  I’ve mentioned in the past that I am not the biggest […]

How is it already the middle of August! Just last week I was down the Cape with my family going to the beach and taking a much needed vacation from being connected to social media 24/7. Since I’ve been quiet on the sm front, here is what you might have missed…  I got to spend […]
