Positive thinking is a powerful thing. Your attitude can greatly affect the world around you, and you life specifically. I believe that optimism is one of the greatest qualities a person can have, not only for those around them, but for themselves. The way you think affects your whole body and your whole life. Its the idea of cause and affect. The universe gives you what you put out. Give off bad vibes and you will live a negative life. Emote positive vibes and put your dreams out into the universe and it will reward you. Trust me, it works every time. Continue Reading…

Lately I have been all about trying new healthy recipes. It has been really fun experimenting in the kitchen and I’ve discovered that eating healthy doesn’t have to mean eating boring chicken & veggies every night. There are so many amazing recipes and ideas out there now that you can always find something new to eat. Eating healthy and nourishing your body is so important in order to feel your best every day. I am so sick of feeling bloated, icky, and bleh after eating a meal that wasn’t the best choice. One thing I have been experimenting with is pancakes! Everybody loves them, but they can be carby sugary nightmares. I came up with an easy to make, healthy recipe that will fuel your body and leave you feeling great. These are dairy free, bloat free bananalicious beauties. Continue Reading…

Fall is that wonderful time when the earth cools down, the leaves change to brilliant reds and oranges, and there is pumpkin spice everything. It’s that warm and fuzzy magical time where we go from summer vacations to cozy sweater weather. Unless you live somewhere tropical, or in SoCal like I do where we basically have summer year round, fall is a beautifully refreshing season and a great time to spend with family and friends. I was thinking about all of the activities that we get to do this time of year that we weren’t able to do all summer long. As a reminder for myself and all of my amazing readers, I’ve written down a list of some of my favorite fall activities.

There’s No Business Like Show Business

Recently I went to New York City! It is my favorite big city in the world. I had some auditions out there so I made it a little business trip getaway. It was a great week filled with auditions, dance classes, Broadway shows, catching up with friends, wandering through central park, and living in the city. Although I did a few touristy things, this week was spent as if I actually lived in New York. It was really cool to experience it as more of a local than a tourist. Continue Reading…

During the Summer months our skin takes a beating from the Sun’s rays, chlorinated swimming pools, and that makeup you left on after a night in the city. I get it, we’ve all been there. I’m there right now. Luckily, I found a product line that rejuvenates my skin and gives my tired eyes a boost of moisture. Petunia Skincare recently sent me two skin serums to review, & I am here to give you the 411. Continue Reading…

I am wearing their “Rebecca” Multi-­color Rope & Chain Bracelet and Long Coral Tassel Necklace. These pieces added a lot of pop to my outfit and were so easy to throw on & go! Continue Reading…
