My New Drink Obsession: Green Juice + Recipe


It seems like everyone is jumping on the healthy juice trend lately and, luckily for me, my boyfriend recently invested in a juicer so I can hop on the wagon without having to spend ten bucks at an overpriced juicery.


G R E E N    J U I C E

Ingredients:
2 apples, quartered
1 lemon, quartered
Bunch of spinach or kale (or both!)
Small piece of ginger, peeled
1 cucumber
Celery

Directions:
1. Prepare all the ingredients. Depending on your juicer, peel and chop produce to fit.
2. Juice all ingredients together.
3. Pour over ice and enjoy!


I've been drinking this in the morning and it might get me more energized than coffee...seriously. It's a great way to get a bunch of veggies in your diet without even realizing it. The great thing about juicing is that you can adjust the recipe to fit your preferences, like adding more apples for sweetness or more ginger for a kick.

What is your favorite healthy drink?

Casual Striped Spring OOTD


What I love about Spring outfits is that you can take the simplest, basic pieces, add a bright lipstick and some sunnies and you look chic and put together. I've worn this outfit a few times already and will definitely try out some other outfit combinations with these pieces. These pieces are all included in my Spring 2015 capsule wardrobe, but I still need more pieces so that I don't wear this same outfit everyday...

Sunday Snippet #2

I used to always think of Sunday as the start of the week, but after getting my planners, I've started thinking of it as the end of the week. My random transition into the long-belated second segment of Sunday Snippet.

Planner Friday: My Current Planner Setup

If you follow me on Instagram, you will know that I am in a deep #planneraddict phase. It was something that I came upon by accident, but quickly and completely fell in love with. I have always had a planner of some sort since 6th grade, but this year I started investing in nicer planners and including all aspects of my life in them. If you're interested in more info and my planners and my setups and how I stay organized, read more about the jump!

NYC: Instagram-Worthy Brunch at Chalait

224 W. 4th Street
New York, NY 10014


{Matcha Latte | Chalait Egg Sandwich | Farmhouse Crunch | Classic Avocado Toast}



There are always new restaurants in NYC that seem to take up my entire Instagram feed and make me FOMO (fear of missing out) for not having been there. Lately, Chalait is that place. They are famous for their beautiful Matcha Lattes and photogenic Avocado Toast and I finally got to visit and join the hoard of 'grammers a few weekends ago. The decor is minimalistic and industrial cool, but there was not a lot of seating available making it hard to sit and talk with friends (or snap the perfect Insta). My friends and I waited a for open seats before ordering our food, so that we wouldn't awkwardly be standing around with plates.

The Classic Avocado Toast was amazing and probably my favorite dish we ordered; it was a bit pricey for what it is, but I would definitely get it again. The sandwiches were also good, but a little too pricey to get with a drink. The Matcha Lattes were so pretty, but there was not enough matcha flavor for green tea-lovers like my friends and myself. I still got a subtle flavor and finished the huge mug, but the most enjoyable part about it was the picture (#doitforthegram). The cafe itself is located in a really cool area of West Village with a bunch of other delicious eateries nearby, so be sure to grab a quick bite and explore the neighborhood!
