Banana Buddies | The Healthy Alternative For Smores’

Happy Happy Friday!!!

We all know that summer is just around the corner, and what better to start off the summer, then a small kick-back with friends, or maybe even a beach bonfire?

6 When it comes down to it though, we all can never forget the classic, classic “hot dogs over the fire”, and obviously the american favorite, “Smores”.

This summer though, I want to try a few healthy alternatives to make myself feel better, and my body feel better.

Here is a great take on Smores, in which I call “Banana Buddies“- the healthy alternative to the classic smores.

aa

INGREDIENTS

banana, peeled
tablespoons miniature marshmallows
tablespoons semi-sweet chocolate chips
tablespoons Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, slightly crushed

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat grill to medium high heat.
  • Slice banana lengthwise and slightly open. Place on a rectangle of aluminum foil.
  • Insert marshmallows and chocolate chips into the sliced banana.
  • Wrap banana up in foil and cook on the grill for 5-6 minutes.
  • Unwrap banana and top with cereal. After melt has slightly cooled eat with a spoon.
  • OVEN METHOD: Cook in the OVEN at 400 degrees for 5-6 minutes.
  • CAMPFIRE METHOD: Keep peel on banana; slice lengthwise twice, lift up flap of peel, slice banana and add chocolate and marshmallows as above. Replace peel flap and wrap banana with foil. Let the flames die down before adding banana packets directly to fire. Cook 3-5 minutes, or just until soft and melty. Use tongs to remove from fire. Carefully unwrap and un-peel banana to eat.

“Neighbors” Movie Screening With Zac Efron + Seth Rogan | Neighbors Movie

I hope everyone is having a great end to their final week so far.

 

5

Tonight, I had the amazing option of attending the movie screening, “Neighbors“, as i’m sure you all know, or maybe don’t know, but I am a huge movie junkie!

Neighbors“, will be coming out this upcoming May 9th and the movie stars Seth Rogan, Zac Efron, and Rose Byrne.

If you have seen previous previews for the movie, i’m sure you’ve seen the scenes of where the young couple with a baby, is suddenly forced to live next to a fraternity house, in which Zac Efron plays the main role as one of the “trouble-maker” fraternity boys.

Rose Byrne, and Seth Rogan are also teamed up together playing the “parenting roles” of their newborn baby, and  the ones that come to a conclusion that they need to both find a solution to stop the ruckus of the fraternity chaos.

Overall, I thought the movie was fantastic, and I thought each character in the movie played out their roles very well.

Usually when you go to a movie now a days, you can totally plan out the plot, and figure out what happens by the end of the movie, but this is not the case for “Neighbors“.

Everything was played out very well, and if you asked me to see the movie again, i’d honestly go a few more times.

Alison & Ivy | Initials In A Monogram Necklace

Wahoo! It’s Wacky Wednesday! Just kidding…Well Maybe.

We all know that every girl has a confession to love as much jewelry and “gold bling” that she can possibly love.

Who needs a boyfriend, when we just have jewelry to love instead right?

If only necklaces, earrings and bracelets could talk, and love back, then the world of accessories, and pretty much every girl’s dream would be complete.

A while back, I was out with a few of my girlfriends at at a local pub in Santa Monica that we always go to, and across the room, I saw this girl wearing a gold monogram necklace type of thing, and I totally ended up thinking it was a “Bauble Bar” necklace, but she proceeded to tell me, even though she didn’t know me, that her initials were actually inside of the necklace.

A few weeks later, I found a place where I could actually get my own initials as a monogram necklace, and let me tell you, I was over-joyed!

I found this lovely gem through “Alison & Ivy“.

The cool part was that Alison & Ivy actually customizes each and every necklace to your length needs, and initial needs!

They have the best quality jewelry and they can personalize anything from rings, to earrings, to necklaces, to watches!

I went with the gold classic monogram necklace, which is priced at about $165.00, but it was totally worth every penny.

You will be seeing me wear this necklace in a variety of outfit posts coming up, that’s how much in love with it I am!!

These make perfect gifts for a best friend, family member or loved one.

Skimpy Swimwear | New Spring Favorites

Spring is HERE! Summer is almost here! That’s right, Scream + Shout! 

That means that it is time for me at least, to (a) hit the gym, (b) start eating healthy, and (c) to break out my favorite spring / summer bikinis.

I actually still have swimwear from like 2 years ago, because it never hurt anyone to always mix and match your swimwear tops and bottoms.

If you’ve been reading the blog since well…day 1, you’ve definitely heard me talk about Skimpy Swimwear.

AND PS:

Stop shopping at your same mall stores this spring and summer, and give online swimwear a go, i’m serious! Trust me, you’ll fall in love, and i’m totally done with “Neiman Marcus”, and “Nordstrom”.

I’d much rather buy pieces online from independent brands.

Anyways, enough of me babbling on, I am too excited that Skimpy Swimwear came out with new items for spring!

Can I have like 5 of every suit please?

Ohhh La La La La! Skimpy!

Win A Lunch Date With Me + Snippity | Snippity Launch

So if you guys already follow me on Twitter [ @HeatherHahnn ], you’ve probably by now, heard all of the buzz about my partnership with the new social platform that is solely based off of trending hairstyles called “Snippity”.

If you’ve used Pinterest before, Snippity will be similar in a way that, let’s say you go and get your hair done, but you really do not want to flip through an entire magazine to show your hair stylist the specific look that you would like, so instead, you can show your hair stylist the specific cut, or style that you are looking for on your Snippity board. Snippity will let you pin various hair looks and styles to the board that may catch your interest so you can directly show your stylist what exactly you’re going for.

I don’t know about you, but I am tired of flipping through those darn magazines, just to find a color and cut that I want!

Aside from being super excited about the launch of Snippity coming up, i’m running an contest, where you can win a lunch date with me!

[ Yes, this may be a little hard because I am based in L.A, but please feel free to enter if you are in the area! ]

Snippity You will constantly see me tweeting about “Snippity” on my Twitter, so all you have to do is simply re-tweet my tweets about Snippity!

I look forward to grubbing with one of you!

Casey’s Cupcakes | The Top Cupcake Go-To In Southern California

If it’s any kind-of dessert that I have a sweet tooth for, it has always been cupcakes.

If you’ve had the chance to visit Los Angeles before, or Southern California in general, i’m sure that you are aware of the numerous cupcake shops around the state.

From Sprinkles Cupcakes to Georgetown Cupcakes to Crumbs Bakery, I have a new appreciation for “Casey’s Cupcakes“.

A few weekends ago, one of my best friends and I decided to get away from the city for a bit, and we traveled down to Orange County, ending up in Newport Beach.

If you are ever in Newport Beach, by the way, you must take time out of your day to visit “Fashion Island”, an outdoor shopping plaza consisting of all of the shops and stores that you could ever dream of.

For tasting “Casey’s Cupcakes” for the first time, as I had the “Peanut Butter Pizzaz“, literally nothing has hit my mouth so sweeter, and so much filled with deliciousness.

 Peanut Butter Pizzaz

The owner and founder Casey Reinhardt was the winner of The Food Network’s “Cupcake Wars”, and she continues to build Casey’s Cupcakes all over Southern California.

Casey’s Cupcakes current locations include:

+ Newport Beach

+ Riverside

+ The Irvine Spectrum Center

+ The Irvine Woodbury Town Center

Here are a few of my favorite flavors that I cannot wait to try, next time I pay a visit to Casey’s Cupcakes:

Caribbean Coconut

Excellent Espresso

Rockin’ Red Velvet

Sassy Strawberry

Grandma’s German Cake

Vivacious Vanilla

Partnering With Clean + Clear | Deep Action Exfoliating Scrub

I hope everyone is vamped up for this up and coming weekend.

A lot is going to be going on in and around L.A this weekend, as Coachella { L.A’s BIGGEST music festival } starts today for weekend 1 and then next weekend starts weekend 2.

It’s so funny sometimes even talking about Coachella, because being from Ohio, the closest thing we have to a “music festival” is Rover Fest in downtown Cleveland, so actually coming out to Los Angeles, and hearing all of the hype about “EDC” and “Coachella” is so crazy to me.

If you are going to Coachella this weekend, or any other summer festival, remember that you always want to go with a fresh, and clean face shining underneath that summer sun.

I just recently partnered with Clean and Clear, to give you guys an insight on some of my favorite products from their line, that is great for summer skin.

I’m going start off with their “Deep Action Exfoliating Scrub”, which is oil-free thank goodness, and gently exfoliates your skin deep down to clean out your pores.

My Favorite Summer Looks From NastyGal | NastyGal

One of my favorite online shops has always been that of “NastyGal“.  I love that NastyGal is funky and fun, but you can totally pull off a true fashion statement with still having a little bit of your own individuality.
Believe it or not too, about 2 years ago, I actually use to work at NastyGal, helping customers with their online orders through the website.

NastyGal is one of the best places to work at, with the most down to earth individuals. Aside from having my boss order us food out every Friday, everyone always came into the office, dressed up in NastyGal and ready to go on the job.

[ And they TOTALLY had dogs running around the office everywhere, which is something you don't see on the normal job site!]

Anywho, here are my top favorite NastyGal picks for the summer of 2014! Bring on that sunshine baby!
