Bullying is a topic near and dear to my heart and something that happens all too often in the US and around the world. In our schools, on our playgrounds and throughout our community. Approximately 13 million kids will be bullied this year in the US alone and 60% of 4th through 8th graders report being victims of bullying. Let’s lower that statistic together by educating and rallying students with anti-bullying initiatives, teach our children how to be empathetic and talk about the effects bullying has both short + long term. It shouldn’t hurt to be a child and it’s weird NOT to be weird.
As a college student, I know what it’s like to pinch pennies. Just because I’m a girl on a budget doesn’t mean I can’t eat healthy though! On my last visit to Fresh & Easy, I got a bunch of snacks for under $20! Not only will they last me at least a week (if I didn’t have a garbage disposal boyfriend that ate everything, it’d be much longer) but I can feel good about eating them while I inevitably binge watch Netflix.
My Experience with SwamiMami Teas: I absolutely loved my Swami Mami Cleanse. After my first 2 days, I felt less bloated and like my body was cleansing. After 2 weeks, my skin was noticeably clearer too! The fruity taste was delightful and I loved that I didn’t have to add unnecessary sweeteners (even honey or agave!) The tea comes with muslin bags, but to be honest, they got hard to wash after the third day of use, so I put my tea into teapods I already had and it did the trick perfectly! I’d highly recommend this cleanse to anyone!
Mo’s Experience with YourTea: The Tiny Tea detox from Your Tea was amazing! The tea itself doesn’t taste great, but as an avid tea drinker I can drink it plain, no problem. I’ve heard of others adding honey to theirs, but I preferred mine without. I didn’t notice a huge boost in energy, however it was suddenly cake to get up at 7 or 8 a.m. for a light workout. I noticed less bloating, it was easier to work out, my body toned up and lost weight quicker and I wasn’t as tired throughout the day. I also noticed I digested food a lot more easily. This stuff’s not magic per-say but if you want to realistically “shrink” your belly and get more energy, Tiny Tea is the way to go. I only gave it a 3.5 because of the smell, taste and the fact that it says 3x a day (a little too much for me. I used it twice a day and still saw results).
If you follow me on Instagram, you know that farmers’ markets are one of my very favorite Saturday morning rituals. Usually, G + I hit-up a local market and then go to coffee afterwards. It’s a great way to begin our day and a yummy one to boot! I like to keep my outfits easy going and bright on these days– fun, easy to put on (I don’t always love waking-up at 7:30! ) and cute.
Hi, all! For those of you that follow me on Facebook and Instagram, you already know that I had the chance to visit Rocky Point, Mexico this past Spring and it was incredible. It was a weekend spent with good people, good food, good drinks + relaxing vibes. I was given the opportunity to stay at the Bella Sirena Resort thanks to Seaside Reservations and was blown away by the premises and room! It was elegant, clean and huge.
Bella Sirena is perfect for you if:
You want a relaxing getaway in a setting that’s more like a condo than a hotel room.
If you want to do most of the cooking.
If you want to stay off-the-grid and not have tons of loud neighbors.
If you want a calm place that overlooks the ocean and has a private beach.
If you’d like to have 3 different pools without the party-all-day atmosphere.
We went into town and had a blast drinking street-side pina coladas, munching on amazing Mexican food + buying goodies!
This weekend was so great and went by way too fast! It’s Monday + back to the grind. I have a super busy week ahead, but am excited to finally be done with school for the semester! Last week, my Weekly Wishes were to catch up on some client work, get some more planning done for The Passion Punch + submit all of the paperwork for our (hopefully) new apartment. I’m happy to say that all of this got done! I am so happy and even though I have tons more to do, it feels nice to tick a few things off the list.
This Week, my Weekly Wishes are to:
Do 3 client tasks that are larger projects.
More planning for The Passion Punch– the launch is getting closer!
Go the farmers market + get some yummy fresh foods on Saturday with G.

Can I just start off with saying how happy I am that I have my last two finals this week? I’ll finally have more time for client work, blogging, learning photography + tons of other things that I’ve been wanting to do and I am so excited! Last week, my Weekly Wishes were to finish my final papers by Tuesday night, get all of the paperwork submitted for our (hopefully) new apartment and relax this weekend. I did finish my finals papers by Tuesday night, I didn’t get all of the paperwork submitted (I kept on forgetting!) and I did get to relax some. It felt so darn good to just lay out by the pool, do my nails + watch a couple Parts Unknown episodes!
This Week my Weekly Wishes are to:
Catch-up on some client work.
Get some solid game planning done for The Passion Punch.
Submit all of our paperwork this time! It has to happen.
I was having a gathering the other day and wanted to do something really unique with the appetizer I had to bring but it also had to be easy to throw together because of my time constraints from finals…*yuck* My idea turned out to be a real crowd-pleaser + now I want to share it with you too!
I bring to you– Ranch dip and popchips Ranch Tortilla Chips!
To be honest, I bought some pre-made ranch dip at the store, but you can also find some delicious looking recipes, here, if you’d like to put your own together. Next, I threw them into a few martini glasses I had lying around + stuck some of popchips’ Ranch Tortilla Chips into the top and bam! So darn good + so darn easy. I really liked the chips because they now include 15% more in the bag + taste delightful.
Monday, why did you have to come so soon?! After a wonderful + relaxing weekend in Mexico, it’s back to the grind and this week is hitting me hard. After the past few days of bottomless margaritas, the sweet ocean breeze + wonderful time spent with my parents and G, it’s time for lots of work…2 huuuge final papers to write, 4 finals to study for and tons of client work that has to get done. Yikes! Last week’s my Weekly Wishes were to get some more work done for The Passion Punch, finish another final project and enjoy Mexico. I definitely got some more work done for TPP and enjoyed Mexico but the final project didn’t get done! Made a good dent in it, but I have to clean up a few loose ends tomorrow.
This Week my Weekly Wishes are to:
Get my final papers done my Tuesday night.
Finish up submitting all the paperwork for our (hopefully) new place.
