2019 was an intense year all around. The intention I set at the beginning of the year was to move forward. I had felt stuck and stagnant in many areas of my life, and I just wanted to move on, move forward, and keep moving somewhere, anywhere better. And 2019 did not let me down.... Continue Reading →

PB&J Protein Smoothie

Smoothies are a great way to pack everything you need for the day into one delicious meal you can take on the go! You can add protein and supplements, and it's my favorite way to sneak in collagen, chia seeds, and extra greens. This recipe is one of my very favorite smoothies that I make... Continue Reading →

Botox or No-tox?

Ahh, the age-old question (pun intended) -- should I get Botox? As I entered the last year of my twenties a few weeks ago, I decided to get Botox as my gift to myself. (I have no shame in admitting that I got Botox, or that I got myself a birthday gift.) To be clear,... Continue Reading →

Same old habits, same old disappointments, same old fears. Growth in a few areas, stagnancy in some areas, even regression in others. Boundaries, set... Continue Reading →

Isotretinoin (a.k.a Accutane)

After a 15+ year war against acne, I have finally raised the white flag. A few weeks ago, I started Accutane. Actually, technically Accutane is a brand of isotretinoin which is no longer on the US market. Isotretinoin is the generic form, and there are now several other brands available. A few weeks ago, I... Continue Reading →

Peppermint Mocha Overnight Quinoa

As you all know, overnight oats has become one of my latest obsessions. I have been eating oats soaked overnight in almond milk, usually with almond butter (among other favorite ingredients), almost every single morning for the past several months. So, you can imagine my disappointment when I discovered in a food allergy test this... Continue Reading →
