BE DIFFERENT




heading to a free people workout class tomorrow morning and
am reflecting on some of my favorite FP purchases from 2017.
this bright green puffer coat is one of them. i've been making a
conscious effort lately to buy clothing that is different. i
was tempted by the classic black, but the green stood out more to
me. it's little things like that that make me feel super confident
and excited about my style. i paired it with an athleisure outfit
that my friends at aday gifted me. this blue and black look with the
green coat is kind of mish-moshy, yet it goes perfectly :)

GONE TO GURNEYS - PART II - BOAT LIFE



my latest party trick is buying clothes super last minute, hoping
for the best, and then wowing people with my outfits the next day.
 so far i've been successful at this twice--first at gov ball and
now, on this press trip.  

the night before leaving, caleb and i hit up zara's fidi location to
find some unique, new england-inspired looks.  since the store was
closing, i was able to try on like... two things and then just hoped
for the best with the rest of the items.

to much surprise, everything fit well!  maybe i offically understand
my body and what types of clothes look good on me?

this outfit was one of those great finds -- all from zara [except my
UNIFORM leather jacket], all last-minute.  the shoes are super
comfortable [i've probably walked 5+ miles in them the first day,
and have worn them 3-4 days this week in nyc]. 

i wore this outfit on what was supposed to be a short boat cruise,
but ended up being a pretty long stationary yacht party [which was
just as fun].  the fog ended being a really mystical backdrop for
photos... i wouldn't have had it any other way!

GONE TO GURNEY'S - PART 1




this trip to gurney's newport truly embodied my blog
title/mantra; it was last-minute, unplanned, overall impulsive, and
so fun. caleb and i decided to join this press trip two days before,
and next thing you know we're enjoying meals at scarpetta, playing
with goats, taking foggy street-style photos with people we just met
[hi thania], and hanging out on a stationary boat for way too long.
part 1 from the trip lives here... more pics to come!

HEALTHY AF MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP "NICE" CREAM


i'm writing this post as i'm eating what i can't believe is
not actual mint chip ice cream.  seriously, this recipe is so damn
good and proof that you don't need to eat food that's ridiculously
unhealthy in order to satisfy any sort of craving.  every time i eat
this (aka every other day) not only does my sweet tooth go away, but
i am actually left feeling full.  this nice cream is seriously like
a full meal.

recipe below.  please try it and let me know what you think.

-1/2 avocado (fresh or frozen)
-1 1/2 frozen bananas (slightly over-ripe)
-1-2 handfuls of baby spinach
-1 tsp coconut oil
-3-4 dashes of peppermint extract
-splash of vanilla extract
-teeny splash of unsweetened almond milk or water
-1/2 palmful of cacao nibs (and more to top off)

blend it all together (i use a ninja express chop) and top with more
cacao nibs. eat it. keep eating. make more if you want... it's good
for you.
