acai addiction

Happy Monday! Ever since I got home for the summer, I’ve been going to 3 Natives for my daily acai bowl fix. I’m pretty sure the people working there think I’m crazy considering I’m there almost every morning… So, in an attempt to save time and money, I found the Sambazon acai sorbet and created my own breakfast bowl! This is super fun to make with friends or family and can be personalized to any of your favorite fruit and topping preferences:

Just stir the softened acai in a bowl (mix in peanut or almond butter if you prefer) and add as many toppings as you want! I added some organic peaches (hint hint, 3 Natives!). I also mixed in a little bit of raw honey and dang coconut chips. If you haven’t tried dang, you haven’t truly lived..just saying. I also like to add some bee pollen, maca powder, and vanilla granola too.

I will say, this bowl was almost exactly the same as 3 Natives. So for those of you who don’t live in the area, you can try it out or yourselves in your own home! However, for me, I just love making the trip there after yoga with friends and family! I also just remembered I have a free acai bowl from my 10 punch card (don’t ask me how many of those cards I’ve been through…)

Hope you all have a great week! : )

 


i’m just doing what i love…

The best part about summer–wake up, take your time, go on pinterest, and then some yoga or pilates–well, at least that’s what I’m doing for now! Lauren made these amazing coconut buckwheat oat jars yesterday, which go great with my favorite green fiend juice from 3 Natives.

I absolutely love my tassel necklace from Bohemian Summer Boutique. Not to mention, the owner is one of my best friends (new website coming soon)! And of course, I can’t go without mentioning my iPhone case from evoncase.

I’ll just be here, pretending this is what I do everyday… enjoying the moment!

quote of the week

ImageHappy Monday!

I’m always repinning quotes onto my the way we get by board, looking over the positive reinforcement and quickly moving on.  However, this quote really stood out.  Loving yourself before you love others is a constant encouragement, making its way through clichés and creative quotes (I really love clichés, don’t I?) The thing about clichés though, is that they are so true!

Being in my 20’s is just beginning, leaving an open and daunting path.  I have been doing things on my own, but of course turning to my family and close friends for advice. I’ve learned that it is so important to learn what I want from life, what inspires me, and who is worth being around.  I encourage you to really look at this quote and try to apply it, because it is so important to find your purpose before you find someone that can share their joy with you.

Hope you all have a wonderful week!
