LATEST OBSESSION // ACAI BOWL

IMG_1965

My latest obsession has been açaí bowls as you can tell on my Instagram. I got requests to share my açaí bowl recipe so I thought I would share! I decided to make açaí bowls at home after looking up recipes online and found how easy it was. I went to whole foods and picked up the ingredients pictured above. I substituted almond coconut milk instead of regular milk and chose coconut flakes, chia seeds, and fruits as my choice of toppings.

Base recipe of the açaí bowl:
– 1/2 cup of almond coconut milk
– 1 pack of açaí berry puree
– frozen banana (for a thick consistency)
– frozen mixed berries

bowl

base recipe + toppings: blueberry, coconut flakes, sliced banana, and chia seeds

three.

What do you put in your açaí bowl?

NYC IN FULL BLOOM

Weather in NYC over the weekend was amazing! I’ve been suffering from allergies but that didn’t stop me from going to Smorgasburg and strolling around NYC. I don’t think I’ve ever been to NYC when cherry blossoms were in full bloom and oh my were they gorgeous. Here are snippets from my trip!

WEEKEND INSPIRATION

IMG_5525 IMG_5572

While flipping through old books and magazines I came across this page and it was just what I needed. I’ve been uninspired and stressed because of the constant pressure to put something new and fresh when I have other commitments in my life. My mind is constantly thinking about a million things all at once and I can’t multitask – it’s nearly impossible for me. Taking pictures of what I love is my happy place but I slowly see myself slacking because it’s just become another part of my daily routine – something I have to do. But taking a step back and asking myself why I’m posting pictures on instagram and my blog helped reignite my passion for photography. Just another reminder to do what you love, life is short – chase your dreams and live life without regrets.

P.S. Fast & Furious 7 was amazing, it lives up to the hype!

SPRING IN FULL BLOOM

IMG_5396IMG_5395IMG_5393IMG_5390

Weather has been in the 70’s and I cant complain, I’ve been loving the sun and spring breeze. I switched up my routine and have been exercising outside ever since the weather warmed up! Over the weekend my sister came for Easter and we got to catch up over brunch at Le Pain with our mom. She brought delicious donuts from NYC that I’ve heard amazing things about, Dough Donuts. I’ll be visiting New York in a couple of weeks and can’t wait to go back and explore some places in Brooklyn I’ve never been to yet. Any recommendations?
