6 ways to instantly look and feel more refreshed

Do you ever have one of those days when you just feel…blah? I know that I definitely do, and because I hate feeling that way, I always do a few little things to make myself look and feel a bit more refreshed and energized. Obviously, showering, wearing something cute, and fixing your hair couldn’t hurt either.  After all, it’s hard to feel refreshed while wearing dirty baggy sweatpants while your hair is still piled sloppily on your head- although I’m sure Miranda Kerr still manages to look stunning that way. But since...

Happy Friday! Here are some of the things that have made me happy this week…   Kevita Sparkling Probiotic Drink in Pomegranate I picked this up at Whole Foods yesterday, and I just wish that I got more than one bottle.  I absolutely love the flavor and the fact that it is sweetened with stevia and organic and non-GMO.  For anyone who is interested, it is also vegan, dairy free, and gluten free.   Coconut Secret Coconut Aminos Soy-Free Seasoning Sauce This is an incredible alternative to regular soy sauce- and it is much...

Friday Favorites (7/11)

There are so many great health benefits to eating radishes.  They can help to control blood pressure, protect us from certain...
