Easy Like Sunday Morning | Sunday Home Inspo

A easy Sunday morning for me is just having a simple bacon, and eggs breakfast, and a good read out by the pool in the sun.

I tend to not take Sundays too seriously, as I usually get myself anxious knowing that I ‘really’ should be focusing on getting my work schedule together before Monday rolls around, instead of kicking back to relax.

Today, I also spent the majority of my time ‘pinning’ on Pinterest.

Aside from changing around basically ALL of my Pinterest boards, I picked out a few ‘inspirational’ home images in order for the next time that I decide to redecorate my home.

I’m Featured On Life In Quebec | Talking About How I Started Chiffon Souffle And More!

It’s no secret that I love when other people talk about Chiffon Souffle. I love sharing tips with everyone on how to be a ‘successful’ blogger, and ways on how to inspire others to start writing as well.

You can read about my interview with Life In Quebec here:

It’s no secret that people in Quebec tend to be some of the most fashion-conscious in Canada.

From Montreal’s reputation as a global style capital to the numerous independent boutiques that line Quebec City’s streets, there’s a limitless hunger for fashion in the province.

For those on the lookout for the latest trends, blogger Heather Hahn has been documenting “what’s next” since 2012 on her blog Chiffon Souffle, where she writes about fashion, beauty, food and travel, among other topics.

“With being a lifestyle blogger, I love the fact that you can write just about anything that goes on in your daily life,” she said.

Although fashion is what drew her to blogging initially, Hahn didn’t want to limit herself to just covering one topic.

“I feel like for my blog, I don’t just focus on one particular topic, like ‘fashion’, where a lot of blogs just do outfit posts,” she said. “I write whatever I’m feeling that day, and what people can relate to.”

After going back and forth on the idea of starting website for a while, Hahn took the plunge because she felt she had something to share.

“I wanted a place where I could write down my inspirations, and share it with other people,” she said. “I never knew it could get as huge as it’s become.”

My Favorite New L.A Eatery | Lyfe Kitchen

When I first moved to L.A from Ohio, I was highly unaware of all of the amazing restaurants, and lounges to eat at around the area.

I mainly stuck to ‘local’ places around the Hollywood area, since that is where I lived at the time.

Now being an L.A native, for at least 5 years, i’ve had plenty of time to explore the city, and open up to new food places that I have never tried before. I have to be quite honest as well, that for me, it’s always a ‘push’ to get me to try new places.

unnamed

This past week, I tried out Lyfe Kitchen.

The funny thing is, I would always walk past Lyfe Kitchen to go to Starbucks, and I would always want to stop in to check out their menu, but I never did, I would walk right past it.

On Thursday, I put my nerves away, and walked into Lyfe Kitchen to check out their menu.

I ended up ordering the “Quinoa Bowl”, which was filled with fresh veggies, Quinoa, and Hummus. I also ordered their “Cucumber Lemon Lyfe Water”, which was AMAZING.

The atmosphere was very fresh, and organic. Personally for me, a GREAT lunch spot.

I went to the one on Ventura Blvd, but there are a ton of other locations that may be closer to you.

If you’re looking to try out a new healthy lunch spot, Lyfe Kitchen is it.

Why My Mom Is My Ultimate Best Friend | By The Editor

Growing up and as a child, I have always been extremely close to my mom.

I could never leave her side for more than a second, and if I did, that would usually be when we were in the store. I would sit in the middle of the aisle and cry hysterically until she found me.

I was attached to my mom at the hip, not to mention that I would always hide behind her when she would try to introduce me to people that were strangers, and people that I knew nothing about, and looked at, as if they were complete aliens, yes I was one of those ‘shy’, strange, kids.

Maybe I had such a close bond with my mom so young, because I was the only child, or maybe this was just because I was always meant to have the best mother/daughter relationship with my mom.

Lets face it, I am a girl, and girls usually lean more so on their moms growing up.

Not to mention the fact that I even turned down joining my dad in “Indian Princesses” because I would of rather spent the day with my mom, opps.

unnamed (3)

As the single digits began to end, and I hit my teenage years, I was still extremely close with my mom, but it was a constant struggle to ‘have my teenage fun’ if you will, and still find the time to spend some quality time with my mom.

I was a good kid, but I of coarse went through the typical teenage years of going out, and usually staying out late, passing curfew.

The more and more I went out as a 16/17 year old, the more I could tell my mom was getting frustrated, and hurt, but of coarse she didn’t let me know, but being her daughter, I could just tell she wasn’t the happiest camper.

When I moved out on my own, I had just about turned 18 years old.

The older I became the easier it was for me to talk to my mom, more so then my dad. I was never really that close with my dad growing up in general. I could still tell my dad things here and there, but I knew that my mom would understand me better than he or anyone could at that time.

When I hit 20/21 years old, that’s when I realized that I had some growing up to do, and my mom and dad started becoming the only two people that I really wanted to talk to. Those 15, 16, and 17 year phases of being a ‘typical teenager’, were times that I could have really spent cherishing moments with both of my parents. Where did going out to ‘house parties’, and coming home at 3-4 am every night get me? Nowhere.

Now being 24, I oddly look back at those years, and I don’t have any regrets, but I wish I could have lived my teenage years differently.

It’s good to socialize with your friends, but your parents are important too. As annoying as they might of been when you were growing up, when you hit your 20’s, that is when you’ll realize that you need them the most, and they need you too. The older you get, the even older they get.

As sad, as it is that life doesn’t go on forever, and that we never really know when our ‘last day’ will be, I really wish I could have divided my time between fun, and my family.

Moving forward though there is always a lesson to be learned, and even if you might not be that close with your family, remember that your family is your blood, and even though at times it may be difficult to get along, they will always be there for you, and they will always need you.

Family is forever.

You BeauTEA | The Perfect Way To Start Your Morning

I hope you all are having a terrific week!

When it comes to waking up in the morning, I don’t know about you, but I am in a heavy need for some major caffeine.

Lately, i’ve been really trying to ‘lean’ myself off of coffee, as coffee isn’t always the ‘best’ health decision that you can make for yourself in the morning.

Tea, and any kind of herbal remedy is usually the best route to ‘go-to’ in the early hours.

I guess you could say that I never really have been much of a ‘tea drinker’, until just recently.

About a few weeks back, I had the chance and opportunity to learn about “You BeauTEA“, which is based out of Australia.

unnamed (6)

You BeauTEA, isn’t your original, daily tea, believe it or not, it is actually Australia’s first anti-aging tea, and it stimulates and builds your body’s collagen naturally, which is what I love, as you really can’t find this is your original tea.

unnamed (7)

The founder of YouBeauTea, Nicole, started this company, when she found herself having an interest in her own health and well being, as she wanted this business venture to be an opportunity and outlet that she could share with others.

Nicole found herself having numerous amounts of health challenges, in which her doctors had advised her to stop drinking caffeine, a similar problem/challenge to what I am currently experiencing myself. It was negatively impacting Nicole’s health, but she still couldn’t see herself living without tea.

As Nicole began to search for the perfect ‘caffeine free’ tea, she soon discovered that each tea that she was coming across, had its own all natural health benefits, which led her to find all natural ingredients that support both health and beauty regimes.

You can’t find that in coffee can you?

unnamed (8)

You BeauTEA is a anti aging Raspberry Collagen Tea with Vitamin C designed to hydrate your skin, to build and maintain your collagen. As well as reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Don’t we all need that?

The overall benefits of drinking Raspberry Collagen Tea with Vitamin C, is it actually improves your skins elasticity, as the tea has 2000mg of collagen peptide and Vitamin C which is needed to stimulate and build your collagen.

You BeauTEA is also designed to give you thick shiny hair and also make your nails longer and stronger. Yes, every girl needs this.

Since, this is Collagen Tea, research and studies find that people consuming collagen will see changes within 4-6 weeks.

So, are you ready to get off of your coffee kick yet?

I am!

Just for you guys, YouBeauTEA is offering 15% off of your first purchase using the code YouBeauTEA15 at checkout.

Wedding Inspiration With Galia Lahav

Happy Saturday!

Even if you’re not getting married anytime soon, a girl can dream right?

I’ll never forget the day that my best friend and I were so bored, that we actually went to a local wedding shop in Ohio, and just tried on wedding dresses for fun for about 3 hours straight.

I guess that’s what happens when you grow up in a small town?

Anyways, I woke up this morning feeling super inspired when I learned that Galia Lahav just came out with her “Les Reves Bohemiens” Spring 2016 Collection.

I mean, come on, look at this….

‘Fight Song’ | Rachel Platten At The House Of Blues

I hope you all are having an amazing Friday.

When it comes to finding out about new music, I am all ears.

This past week, I was recently introduced to Rachel Platten.

As I looked up a few of her songs, and learned about who she was as an artist, I couldn’t believe how insanely talented she was, and how peaceful and inspiring her songs were.

Well I was listening to her songs, I could feel an immediate connection between her lyrics, and certain things going on in my own personal life. One of my favorite songs of hers was, Fight Song, which you can check out down below…

I also went to check out her opening show for Alex & Sierra at the House Of Blues a few weeks back, and was immediately blown away.

Featured On Yahoo Homes | I Partnered With Zillow

I’m beyond excited to share with you guys, that I have partnered up with Zillow, and I was featured on YAHOO HOMES.

Here is the article on how to revitalize your home exteriors after winter.

How to Revitalize Home Exteriors After Winter

Spring is undoubtedly a beautiful time of year — daylong sunshine, blooming flowers and green grass are more than welcome after gray winter skies. But, there’s no denying how much work goes into cleaning up the yard after the snow melts. Just as you would on the inside of the home, it’s important to administer some spring cleaning techniques outdoors.

Here are a few ideas to freshen home exteriors after a long winter.

Wash the exterior thoroughly

Don’t waste time scrubbing the entirety of your house by hand. A pressure washer eliminates the need for elbow grease and even has a compartment for specialized detergents, mimicking the same soapy scrubbing without the muscle aches. Be careful, though, as pressure washers can be dangerous if used incorrectly.

“I actually have used a pressure washer,” says Heather Hahn of Chiffon Souffle. “It was when I had to assist my dad back home in washing off our front patio to our lake cottages. When I was using it, I felt like I was going to be knocked over. You need to have a strong, sturdy stance when you’re using one of those.”
