Collagen Protein – My New Best Friend

I've heard a lot of positive things about collagen lately. It seems like every celebrity has endorsed it and raves about all its anti-aging benefits. I spent a lot of time researching collagen proteins and came across Dr. Kellyann's Slim Collagen Shake. I tried it for 21 days and fell in love. Each morning I make a shake with her grass fed protein powder and feel amazing. I have been eating low carb, so I love that the powder only has 2 net carbs per serving.

All Saints – My Dream Jacket

This morning I went to SOCO Collection in Costa Mesa. It’s primarily a home decor shopping center but the center space has lots of cool shops, a Portola coffee (!), a farmer’s market, and some really cool restaurants. I had recently purchased a suede jacket from All Saints (majorly on sale!) and absolutely love it. The color is perfect and it reminds me of the white leather jacket with tassels that Lana Del Rey wore in the Ride music video. Continue reading “All Saints – My Dream Jacket”

(Literally) Sleepless in Seattle

I just got back from being in the most incredible wedding last weekend in Seattle. I had almost no time to explore the city since I was spending my time with the most incredible bride, groom, and wedding party. It was one of those weddings where you only want to go back and do it all over. It took place at SoDo Park and the venue was quite spectacular. Continue reading “(Literally) Sleepless in Seattle”

Among the Wildflowers

Last weekend I went to the flower fields in Carlsbad. Talk about a great photo opportunity! The fields are beautiful and seem to go on forever.  If you live in Orange County and haven’t been before, grab your camera and go check it out. Tons of people were there taking photos so it’s definitely fun to do with your friends and family. Continue reading “Among the Wildflowers”

Capitola Jewels Travels: Washington D.C.

Washington D.C is an awesome city with great night life, shopping, and tons of free stuff to do.

I took a trip during President’s Day Weekend which left me with three full vacation days in a new city. I had been once before when I was in middle school, but had no idea what to expect as an adult. I loved D.C. and can’t imagine anyone not enjoying the city. Continue reading “Capitola Jewels Travels: Washington D.C.”

Surviving a Juice Cleanse – a Beginner’s Guide

Ah, the good ‘ol juice cleanse. Detoxing, losing water weight, clearing up your skin, why not do one, right? Aside from highly restricting your calorie intake and not eating for three days, juicing is awesome. I really mean it. I did the Nekter Juice Bar Advanced Three Day Cleanse and absolutely loved it! After day three I felt thinner, detoxed, five pounds lighter (actually 5.8 to be exact), and ready to keep eating healthy. Continue reading “Surviving a Juice Cleanse – a Beginner’s Guide”

The Skincare Bible – or at Least Mine

Let’s talk skincare, shall we?

I am slightly obsessed with obtaining perfect skin. Growing up, I never took care of my skin and I wouldn’t wash my face let alone put on sunscreen. When I turned 22, I mentioned to a co-worker that I would typically wash my face once a day. She just about fell over. Needless to say, she sat me down and explained to me why skincare was so important. Continue reading “The Skincare Bible – or at Least Mine”

The CAMP in Costa Mesa

I spent last weekend at the CAMP and had forgotten how much I love it there. It is full of great shopping, fabulous restaurants, and good nightlife. I went in the morning and grabbed a coffee and did a little shopping. I also love going for dinner and drinks at Mesa or grabbing a burger at Umami Burger. Continue reading “The CAMP in Costa Mesa”
