The Whole30

Last week I attempted the Whole30 diet and decided to share my results here. First I only stuck to the diet for 1 week. After researching lots of diets over the course of the last few months I looked into the Whole30 and thought, besides the dramatic cut of a few food groups, it could be a good option. This diet was very hard to stick to because it is not flexible for any lifestyle but it's own.

In case you were unaware the Whole30 diet is where you eat clean for 30 days and if you mess up once you are supposed to start back at day 1. This is supposed to completely reset your digestive system. You eat moderate portions of meat, seafood and eggs; lots of vegetables; some fruit; and natural fats.

This diet is very hard to stick to because you have to pretty much bring all of your food with you wherever you go. It is also very healthy because you cut out all of the processed foods you usually eat. If you are looking for a diet that would be more convenient, this would not be it. This diet is also very hard to shop for because you have to look at the ingredients of anything that has added sugar or preservatives.

Overall I felt tired on this diet and lost 2 lbs in the week that I tried it. For more information on this diet you can visit the Whole30 website here.

It's Finally Friday!! The spring semester is in full swing for this girl, however, spring break is in 7 days and counting, so things are looking up! Today I am sharing my college grocery staples, because at least at my school the food is not great and I mainly go to the dining hall for dinner. I am gluten-free, so everything on this list to the best of my knowledge is gluten-free! I do 99% of my grocery shopping at Wegmans and if you are from New York (other than NYC) you know how amazing this grocery store is! Above I am wearing my typical errands outfit, comfy and warm!
Drinks - orange juice - cranberry juice - smart watr - k cups
Fruit - (for fruit I like to the prepared containers because this is a lot less work and there's not a lot of room to prepare fruit at college) - lemons - strawberries - raspberries - apples - pineapple
Cheese/Meat - cheese - Chobani greek yogurt - turkey sandwich meat - all natural coffee creamer
Other Staples - peanut butter - popcorn - trail mix - …


Today's outfit is what I wear is a great depiction of what I would love to wear everyday, thermals, my favorite leggings, and hunters which are great for the tons of snow we have in New York. I love wearing this outfit and outfits like it to my classes and like today, to run errands. This thermal is so warm and insanely cozy!


My August 2017 List

I cannot believe that it's the end of summer and I am leaving for college this week! Today I am sharing my monthly list for August.

I read a post in the middle of the month and it seriously was so great at explaining when the best time to post is if you're interested you can find it here.
The shows that I have been binging this month have been Jane the Virgin - the new season 3 is now out on Netflix, this telenovela is so worth the watch and Desperate Housewives - I watched the entire show, all 8 seasons, a couple of years ago and now I am re-watching this great show on Hulu.

I recently picked up this Smashbox Primer Water, and so far I have been LOVING it. If you haven't already checked it, I would definitely do so. I love spraying it on in the afternoon to freshen up my makeup!
