CITRUS

Where are you sunshine? It’s almost March and it’s still snowing. I switched up my morning fruits from berries to citrus fruits like grapefruit, tangerine, and blood orange. In the morning I got in the habit of drinking lemon water because of the health benefits my mom’s been raving about. As you can tell on my instagram I’ve been slowly incorporating food in my posts and opened a food instagram. Sometimes it gets repetitive and I feel uninspired when posting styled outfits every day so I wanted to explore another passion of mine – food.

Here are some instagram food accounts that make me drool and inspired:

  1. Anastasia – beautiful photos! love that she also loves flowers as much as I do
  2. Marina – everything from tasty donuts to pretty, pink peonies
  3. Maja Vase – want to eat everything…diet…what diet?!
  4. Vickie Liu – amazing and so creative. makes me want to get into baking
  5. Adrianna Adarme – gives me a homey vibe when looking through her photos

SUNDAY VIBES

This past week I got snowed in twice so I managed to get ahead for this week! I’m excited to start my new fitness plan that’ll run for 12 weeks…wish me luck. I made myself pancakes and waffles couple of days ago but skipped on the syrup and instead added more fruits and a sprinkle of powdered sugar. Oh and a little secret but my pancakes and waffles are from the frozen aisle at Trader Joes and Whole Foods. The weekend is almost over but excited to watch the Oscars tonight!

HELLO THURSDAY

IT’S ALMOST FRI-YAY! It was in the single digits the past couple of days and we had a snowstorm here in the east coast. But I can’t complain it gives me an excuse to stay in and refrain from eating out even though that was a fail. Whole Foods happy hour always gets me. I’ve been consistent with my exercise and have about a month until my friend’s wedding…let’s see how motivated I am until then. I’m hoping to do a before and after picture blog post of my progress over the past year! Hope everyone stays warm!

Happy Valentine’s Day! Hope everyone has a lovely day with their loved ones, whether it be with that special someone or with friends. I’ll keep this post short and simple and share my thoughts on what I think love is.

Love is…patient, selfless, encouraging, respectful, and forgiving. From my personal experience I feel like these all go hand in hand and without one it’s hard to have a healthy, long lasting relationship. But I think love first starts with yourself. Love yourself first so you know what you deserve.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protect, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

STOP AND SMELL THE ROSES

I love this quote by Henri Matisse, “there are always flowers for those that want to see them.” I made a promise with myself to be positive this year, and decided to reinforce that goal by writing down one thing I’m thankful for every night. These past couple of weeks have been stressful but I like that it forces me to push myself. I used to give up if something got slightly difficult, but I’m slowly learning to believe in myself – it really is all about perspective. I think that’s why I’ve been going to bikram yoga even though I’m miserable and can’t wait for class to end. But I won’t lie there’s no better feeling than the satisfaction of knowing I made it through a 90 minute class, even though I’m drenched in sweat and aching all over. The hard part is not reaching for chips or ice cream after class…the struggle is real. To those that may be feeling down and having a hard time picking yourself up I hope that you can see the glass half full.

Over the weekend a couple of friends and I made party favors for my friend’s bridal shower. Who doesn’t love hot chocolate? So excited and nervous to be part of the bridal party, but blessed to see one of my best friends have her happily ever after!

Also, I thought that I should share this. To be inspired click here.
