Coconut Blueberry Protein Smoothie

posted on: Saturday, January 30, 2016





It's the weekend!!!! I must say home made smoothies are my jam. Yes thats right!  I make one at least every other day to start off my morning! Most of the time I just improvise with whatever is in my fridge or pantry at the moment , and a majority of the time they turn out delicious! 

This smoothie is a little bit on the creamier side, so if you are down for that you will absolutely LOVE this recipe.

Ingredients : 

-1/2 cup of frozen blueberries
- coconut milk
- chia seeds
- 1 cup of protein powder
- coconut chips

option to add vanilla extract for a sweeter taste!

Blend for 3-4 minutes and ENJOY!

Girls Trip to Park City #ForayandChill

posted on: Saturday, January 23, 2016



Happy Saturday lovelies! Its only been a week since I got back from the best girls trip of my life. yes you heard it of my LIFE! 


Last Tuesday my girl gang from Foray Collective and I headed to Park City, Utah for some fun in the snow!
Morning flights are definitely not my thing, but was so happy to travel alongside some of my favorite blogger babes , Evelina , Jessi Malay , Kaitlynn Carter, Jill Wallace, Sophie Elkus, Alana Greszata, Kelsey White, Eileen from Child of Wild and one of the most talented photographers in the game Derren Versoza.





 It was my very first time to Park City and was shocked to see how incredibly beautiful and picture -esq it was! Straight from SLC to our immaculate house which was situated in the Enclave at Sun Canyon community.the girls from Foray really stepped up their decor game, it was filled with endless amounts of snacks , drinks and of course a closet full of clothing that we could all go in and choose from! ( every girls dream )






There was enough time for a few of us to do a mini photo shoot of our warm cozy looks before we then hit the town for some HOT TOTTIES and appetizers....followed by 4 rounds of shots!











Now on to dinner....words cannot describe how delicious The Riverhorse on Main St. was. Oysters , Scallops , Sea Bass, pot stickers it was all an orgasm to your mouth! First class dining at its finest! 
The room was festive , not stuffy and the musicans added to the atmosphere. The highlight of the night was when two young boys came over and asked to take a photo with our table......I think he was loving all the beautiful young ladies all at one sitting ! 


Although the cold weather and I do not mix so well - sipping on vodka, tequila, and dancing around to Justin Bieber on repeat sure did warm us all right up. If you follow me on snapchat you definitely got to see a live cap of how much fun we were having! The most fun slumber party I have ever been a part of !

Day two was perfection we headed out to the slopes to go snow tubing, and  yes, it was my very first time and I was scared to death! little did I know it would bring out the 10 year old year in me again! after a couple hours of tubing we headed back to the house for some in home spa treatments and Thai Takeout followed by Movie night with yours truly Leo DiCaprio for a little catch me if you can ;)

So many laughs and memories with an amazing group of talented and pure women - I am ready for the next trip! Where shall Foray take us next??? hmmm.....


Check out some of the pieces I wore on the trip below:

That Blue Velvet

posted on: Tuesday, January 5, 2016







It has definitely been a while since my last Interior Design Post, but one of my new years resolutions was to promise to myself and you lovely readers that there will be more consistently!

If you follow me via Instagram and snapchat you will see that I just moved into a super rad loft space Downtown Los Angeles. 

Blue Velvet couches are a current obsession of mine.......above are 5 of my favorite living room spaces that caught my eyes when getting some decor Inspiration! They are sleek yet minimal and sexy..... touches of gold accents , prints and fur really give that antique glamorous feel , perfect for a lady!

Hopefully within the next month or two my apartment will be fully decorated so I can share with you guys my humble abode!

Here are some great finds below!
