Great Lengths

Hi guys!

Hope everyone is bundled up and taking it easy in the cold.  Look on the bright side, in a few months it will be Spring 15 (if mother nature stays normal, ha!).  I am already planning what I want what I need to get rid of to update my wardrobe this spring.  First two things that I want to get... drumroll please:

Diane von Furstenberg Abigail Maxi Wrap Dress how bad is this dress? It's a MUST for me and my goal to wear more color this year. I need this for Spring 15, it's perfect for EVERYTHING. A traditional body style with a non-traditional spring print. KILLER!

Zimmerman Essence embroidered silk-gauze dress

Doesn't this dress make you want to run in an open field and soak up the sun? It's so romantic and airy, this is also a MUST for me to purchase for Spring 15.

Can't think about a maxi dress without accessories.  I see myself in fresh white kicks, a distressed denim vest, and a nude pink bucket bag for the white dress.  For the printed number, a leather bucket hat, a sleek mule, and gold accessories totally screams out chick and comfy.  Ice blue leather is popping up all over the place, it is perfect as a throw on for each dress.

Just thought I bring some Spring inspiration your way, now that websites and stores are converting their floors, what are you most looking forward to seeing?

Shaking things up: Vega One Review

Hi Everyone!

A new week, a new year, and..drum roll please: A NEW REVIEW! Today I am reviewing Vega One all-in-one Nutritional Shake.  I received some samples from Vega One in December (thanks Trevor) and have been adding them to my morning routine.

Before I begin, you guys are probably saying “great another protein shake review”.  That is true, but Vega One is different as it is 100% vegan and there are no allergens.   There is also no sugar added and contains 50% of your daily intake of vitamins and minerals!  The new Vega One also includes, 2 x more greens then previous formulas.  I am working on my green intake so this was a godsend for me. Vega One is plant based and delivers all of the needed nutrition to help your body perform and function at its best level.

After taking a closer look at Vega One and how it compares to other shake that I have had in the past (ex GNC Meal Replacement) I’ve decided that it’s an impressive product and is a good choice for people who are looking for something that includes protein, greens, and other nutrients.  The shakes taste great as you didn’t get a milky after taste.  Initially, I tried the French Vanilla, Vanilla Chai, and Chocolate flavor just adding water.  Vanilla Chai was my fav, if you are looking for a quick nutritious drink by just adding water at work or on a road trip.  Prices for the Vega One All-In-One Nutritional Shake, range from $3.99-$69.99.

After a few days I decided to try out the many recipes on Vega One’s site:

Banana Strawberry Smoothie

I took Vega One first thing in the morning, I made it a point to do a few hours before evening having coffee (which is major for me to do). I felt GREAT! I wasn’t feeling an ounce of hunger, I had more energy to pow wow through work emails!  This was major for me as I am not a morning person at all.  Mixing the shake was very easy with the Vega One shaker also included, there wasn’t any chunks to post-mix after. 

I think products like Vega One will help people stick to their resolutions of having a healthier lifestyle this 2015.  The Vega One All-In-One Nutritional shake not only gives the protein people look for but so much more nutritional value then your typical protein shake.  For more information on Vega One and it’s products, you can visit their website.

Hello 2015

Hey guys!

2014 is coming to an end in a few hours! I'm home battling the plague, lol I'm feeling better day by day but thought it would be best to sit tonight out so I won't infect other party goers. Extremely grateful it's not the FLU!  Ironically, even though I am home, eating Thai food and watching an Law & Order SVU marathon, I feel way more at ease/excited going to the new year then I did last year. Last year, I was at a party downtown, it was fun, but I remember not feeling very good about a few things happening at the time.  I am grateful for the lessons I learned in 2014: have faith, trust, believe, and knowing when to walk away.  I'm walking into 2015 stronger, wiser, and truer (to both myself and people around me) than I was a year ago. I'm really stocked about that! Think about it you're not evolving and changing, you're not really in the arena.  

One goal for 2015 is for me is to practice forgiveness and take more time for myself. Hmm, maybe this being sick thing and spending time alone tonight is indirectly helping me with my goal?! Maybe that is too deep, ha! 

Anyway, I babbled on long enough. I wish all my readers, friend's and family, a happy, safe, and prosperous new year. Thank you for the love and support you gave me in 2014! See you in 2015!
