Say hello to ‘The Monday’ smoothie, my new best friend. I’ve been stepping up my smoothie game lately since I started incorporating my Raw Complexions Skintox Beauty Food, and this one is my newest fave creation. It took a few tries to perfect it but it’s pretty on point. I have my go-to green smoothies as well, but I think Monday calls for something prettier (yet still tasty and healthy), don’t you? 

‘The Monday’ Smoothie

1¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
1/3 cup fresh squeezed grapefruit juice (I get mine pre-squeezed at Whole Foods)
1/4 cup (1 scoop) vanilla protein powder
1 tbsp Skintox Beauty Food No. 1
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 cup frozen strawberries
Small handful fresh blueberries

Toss all ingredients in a blender and blend up until smooth. Cheers to kicking Monday booty!


Happy Monday (and New Year) loves! Over the weekend, you might’ve caught me channeling my inner Oompa Loompa if you follow me on Instagram. Each weekend, I try to do a little something for myself beauty-wise, whether it be an eyebrow wax, cleaning my makeup brushes (I try to do this every week or two), a mask, scrub or my Bioré strips. Admittedly, the masks are always the most fun so I can jump out of the bathroom and scare the crap out of my husband! But mostly, it’s a dream to have that super soft skin and glow after a mask. 

This weekend, I tried out my very first Organic Rose + Coconut Face Mask from Oak & Ashland. Uhh-mazing you guys. I normally use the Rose + Black Tea masks by Fresh, but the softness factor was WAY more noticeable with this one. The organic coconut milk powder softens, calms and provides nourishment to the skin, while the rose clay gently removes dead skin cells and helps to detoxify the skin by removing impurities from the pores (and gives you that hue of an Oompa Loompa!) . I also love the little pouch, easy to pop in a travel bag.


Also, the lip balms? They’ve become a new staple in my daily routine. Especially during these cold winter months when I need the extra hydration! The Coconut Mint is my favorite, a little tropical, a little fresh. A huge thanks to Danika, the creator of Oak & Ashland for sending me these to try out! Isn’t she a beauty? I’m always a supporter of biz ladies who create amazing products and truly care about health and well-being. Head to Oak & Ashland to try it for yourself!


Are you all ready for a new year? I’m so looking forward to 2016 and the amazing opportunities it will bring. At the end of each week, I usually clean off my digital desktop to prep for the week ahead. This week (being the last week of the year!), I decided to create a new desktop design to inspire a fresh start. I’d love to make this into a print, how fun would that be for a hostess gift or an office addition?! Is that something you all would love? For now, you can get the FREE download below to pretty up your desktop or mobile.
