The one thing I struggle with the most is lunch. I never know what I am in the mood for or have nothing in the fridge to make what I want. The other day I was searching in my fridge and made a wonderful little wrap and knew I had to share it with you!
1 wrap of your choice
½ a tomato
1 TBS of hummus
½ ripe avocado
1 cup of spring mix or any lettuce of your choice.
I placed the hummus first on the wrap just because it helped everything stay in place! Add the avocado, tomato, and lettuce. Wrap that baby up and enjoy!

Davines has quickly become my favorite brand. They have natural sourced ingredients and are eco-friendly. I honestly have yet to experience a bad product from the company! I have been using their brand for 6 months now and a lot of people have been asking me recently how I keep my hair healthy looking. I decided to share my two secret products with you!
OI ALL IN ONE MILK
On an everyday basis this is my go-to product. Its super rich and nourishing but without any heaviness. It adds shine, softness, helps fizz, moisturizes hair, heat protection and prolongs hair styles. I actually love using this for hair drying my hair. I find it really helps my waves look somewhat cute as apposed to not cute hahah!
OI ABSOLUTE BEAUTIFYING POTION
Want perfectly straight hair but still have that healthy Jennifer Aniston vibe? This is the product for you. This is an oil so be careful when applying. I only use two pumps normally and it works perfectly! It adds tons of shine, softness, helps with frizz, and is an anti-oxidant rich formula. This guy has been a savior for these summer months. I sometimes even use this as a moisture mask overnight!
Make sure to check out Davines in your spare time! Let me know what your favorite hair products are currently!
Chia Seeds, I am obsessed with these little guys! If I can put chia seeds on something I will! Its not a secret that these guys are amazing for you. Packed with Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Fiber, and Antioxidants they are basically a powerful little seed! A great alternative to processed grains like white bread. Sadly, It will not taste like white bread but I have something better for you!
I am a huge creature of habit. I love routines and my breakfast usually stays the same… oatmeal in the winter, shredded wheat in the summer and the occasional omelet, or avocado toast on the weekend. Every so often that oatmeal and shredded wheat just does not cut it and I need a little change up. Say hello to my recent breakfast.
This is basically fool proof for my friends who claim they cannot cook! This is also an overnight product which is great if your running around to late in the morning to make anything! It may not look the most amazing but it sure does taste good and with some fresh fruit you cannot go wrong!
1 cup Almond Milk (I like Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk or any milk you like)
¼ cup Chia Seeds
1 tsp honey
a few dashes of cinnamon
Mix everything up, place in a jar and place in the fridge! Wake up in the morning and enjoy!

OUAI Haircare has been hyped up on social media recently and Im going to be honest with you its worth every penny. The brand was created by Jen Atkin who is one of the stylists for the Kardashians.
I really wanted to check out the range and was in need of a new texturizing spray. I went for the OUAI Texturizing Hair Spray. This product is seriously amazing. It feels like a dry shampoo and a hair spray that made an amazing baby. Its super lightweight and has a wonderful floral scent. Jen took it one step higher and added volcanic minerals to absorb oil and refresh hair! I have even found this extends my curls even longer.
This has by far been one of the best hair finds of the year! Let me know what your favorite hair products are?
I have been recently on a hair kick. I go through phases with buying products but once I saw how many hair products I have collected over the last few months, I knew it would be a perfect mini-series!
Davines has been a favorite brand of mine for some time. If you haven’t heard of them I seriously recommend you check them out! They are seriously an amazing brand! I bought this on whim after getting my hair done. I love big hair but a lot of times I feel like volumizers make my hair thick and gross. Say hello to the product that changed all that!
Davines Volu Hair Mist is leave- on formula that is recommended for volumizing hair at its base. It doesn’t weigh my hair down and it always leaves my hair with a shiny/soft appearance. I usually use this after I have washed my hair and I spray directly into my roots and give it a little massage.
I have yet to experience anything bad with this product and it smells like a floral forest of wonderfulness!

I have commitment issues with mascara. I have admitted it and I’m pretty sure a bunch of you can relate. I feel like I am on a never ending search for the perfect mascara.
Recently I was in the mall and found myself at the Clinique counter and of course checking out the mascara. I heard a few bloggers talk about the Clinique High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara and after a few minutes of inner arguments I decided I needed it. On first use I was impressed, not only are my lashes fuller but longer and well defined. I don’t know if I would go as far to say they are dramatic but personally for everyday wear I am very happy with it. I am still trying this guy out but I will keep you updated if he gets me to commit to a long term mascara relationship!
Let me know what mascaras you have been loving!
Kiehl’s has been on a roll recently with amazing products! Every time I am at the counter I spend so much money but it is worth it in the end. Here are two products I have completely fell in love with recently!
Kiehls Turmeric and Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque
This masque looks gross on the skin but gives wonderful appearance to the skin after! My skin looked instantly brighter, less dull, and less fatigued after using this. It is formulated with Cranberry Extract and Antioxidants to help with inflammation. This also has micronized Cranberry seeds to help exfoliate the dead skin away!
Kiehl’s Cucumber Herbal Alcohol- Free Toner
I have been on a toner craze recently! I was looking for a toner to help with all the redness my skin has been experiencing recently. This toner is perfect for those of us that have dry or sensitive skin. It helps soothe, balance and calm irritated skin.

Since, starting Grad School my life has become one busy day after another. Recently, I have noticed the effect my non-exercising life and horrible eating have had on my body. In response I started attending yoga classes which is completely new to me. I am seriously loving how my body feels after class, plus it’s a great way to de-stress after sitting in class all day!
I have been trying to introduce healthier options into my diet which is a lot harder than you may think. Thankfully Chobani has introduced the Simply 100 Crunch– a light greek yogurt with a natural, crunchy pieces! Want to hear the best part? It is only 100 calories. I was worried this wouldn’t taste as good as the original but honestly Chobani did not cut any corners. I love to grab one of these when I am in a rush to get to school or as a dessert in the evening.
Some of my favorite ways to burn 100 calories are 20 minutes of dancing around the kitchen, 20 minutes of yoga and 38 minutes of shopping. Here are a few other ways to burn 100 calories!
There are so many different ways to stay active, and Simply 100 Crunch is an easy, guilt-free way to indulge without eating a million calories! Thank you Chobani for inviting me to share the new line of Simply 100 Crunch Greek Yogurt! Let me know how you are staying active!
My number one question about beauty related things is usually what I wear everyday. I’ll be honest I have no time in the morning to do a whole face of makeup. Here is my quick and easy make up routine!
One of my all time favorite foundations is BareMinerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Gel Cream which evens out my skin tone perfectly and is super light on the skin. Since starting school my dark circles have truly become a battle of mine and Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer is amazing! It covers up even my darkest of circles!
I don’t spend much time on my brows during the weekday mostly because I have been recently tinting them which saves me tons of time in the morning! I usually use a coat or two of Benefits Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel in Blonde which keeps them in place all day. With summer around the corner I figured a waterproof mascara was necessary. I recently picked up Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara in Waterproof and have become completely obsessed with it! It’s the original formula but with no smudging!
I don’t contour on a daily basis but I do put a little bronzer on my face to give it a little dimension with Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Powder in Medium. I love the instant glow I receive from using this. I love blush and it does wonders to make me look somewhat alive. NARS Blush Oasis is perfect to keep those cheeks looking healthy and natural! Its not to pink and not too intense. Finally, I always carry Fresh’s Sugar Tinted Lip Balm in Rose which is perfect for everyday use. I never feel like I am wearing lipstick when I have this on.
Let me know what your favorite products are for during the week!
I have been on an Estee Lauder kick recently. I always think of Estee Lauder as the “ Classy “ makeup brand. I was looking around Nordstrom recently and passed by the counter. Of course a few things caught my eye. Here are some of the things I bought!
Bronze Goddess was the main reason I even walked past the counter at Nordstrom. I kept hearing great things and let’s be honest I had to buy it. I find it gives a wonderful glow to the skin and still looks super natural. Another product I kept hearing wonderful things about Double WearBrush-on Glow BB Highlighter. This amazing guy helps brighten, conceal, and highlight. I have been using this as an under eye concealer for those days where I need a bit of extra help. The results of this guy is amazing! I have yet to experience I bad makeup day with this!
Sometimes we have those “pure whim” purchases and the Double Wear Zero-Smudge Lengthening Mascara was one for me. I have only been using this for a week now but holy moly is this amazing! It separates each lash and still gives a dramatic look! Another whim purchase was the Double Wear Stay-in-Place Powder Makeup. Some days I am running out the door and have zero time to apply foundation. This is when a powder foundation comes in handy. I have been on the hunt for the perfect one and I may have found it! This powder foundation is super long-wearing, creaseless, and blends evenly into the skin.
