    The Instagram Trap – how Instagram can overcomplicate healthy eating

    First of all.. let me just start by saying  I LOVE INSTAGRAM. I love getting to know people through instagram and that I’ve literally met my best friends because of it. I love seeing helpful tips that people give and getting creative new ideas from their posts. There’s a lot of things that I love about Instagram, But there’s also some things that I don’t love about it. The main one being what I call – The Instagram Trap. The trap that I, and so many others, get sucked into without even realizing it. So what exactly is the Instagram trap? Let’s talk about it.. When I first started my Instagram account I was still pretty…

    LA Eats

    If you’re a health nut like me, you know that LA is the place to freakin be. The amount of healthy eats in the area seems almost overwhelming – like, I can only fit in SO many meals a day.. where do I go?! I spent a week with my Instagram foodie bffs doing all the healthy foodie things and here is a list of all the good places we hit! Obviously, I didn’t hit ALLL of the places I was hoping to, but here’s where I did go –   Great White – Venice, CA We came here for brunch on my first day  (and the last day, lol)…

    College Life – why living at school just wasn’t for me

    I grew up constantly hearing about was how amazing my brother’s college experience was – how it was the best four years of his life, how he made the most amazing friends, had the most amazing experiences, and would do it all again in a heartbeat if he could. My brother went to college when I was 3, almost 4, so when I say I heard about this my whole life…I mean it. My brother has always been my biggest role model. I’ve looked up to him my whole life and have always wanted to be just like him. Because of this, living at college was always the plan for me. When…

    Cookie Dough Bites

    Out of ALLL of the recipes i have ever made – this has to be my favorite. I know, I know, bold statement but TRUE. My whole family loves them, even my brother.. which is very rare that he likes something of mine. Now, he checks the freezer every time he’s ever to see if I have a stash of them, and last time he was at my house he took the whole bag of them home with him LOL. So, as you can probably guess these are delissssh if I do say myself. But I’ll let you be the judge….   Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites INGREDIENTS – *Makes about 10, depending on size of…

    Busier doesn’t = BETTER

    Heading into this weekend I realized that I had nothing to do. Absolutely nothing. Nowhere I needed to be, no one I had plans with, nothing important that had to get done. I can’t remember the last weekend that I didn’t have at least one thing to be at or to do. You would think that I’d be so excited to have a few open days and embrace the fact that I could just do whatever I wanted. But for some reason.. the nothingness made me anxious. What was I going to fill my time with? I like to be busy. It’s weird because I get overwhelmed if I have too much…

    *Long post alert* Alright guys, heres part two of my story. If you haven’t read part one yet, you should go check that out first! Something I somehow forgot to mention in part one – January 2013 I started dating a boy! This time – he did not break my heart, and we are still together 🙂 Okay so let’s recap a little. July 3rd 2013  I’m told I have conguntivitis and am sent home from my first round of inpatient treatment. I was supposed to stay home for the weekend until I was no longer contagious and then go back to “living” at the treatment center. During that weekend…

    YOU.DO.YOU

    Hey guys! I promise “My story : Part Two” will be up verrryy soon, but today there was something else on my mind that I wanted to talk about. Many of you probably already know this but for those of you who don’t – I have major depression. It brings a lot of struggles to my life and drags me down every single day. I also struggle heavily with self consciousness and embarrassment, and I think my depression plays a huge roll in these two things.. I am self conscious  and embarassed about EVERY little thing about myself, it goes faaaaar beyond looks ( although I am majorly self conscious about…
