HEALTH BUNNY | Lime & Chili Jicama Sticks

So you know that ugly thing Jicama you always seem to ignore in the grocery store because you’re not quite sure what the hell it even is? Well guys, it’s not a deformed potato, it’s actually a deliciously juicy & crunchy veggie (reminds me of a sweeter tasting water chestnut) that deserves some lovin’. I prefer to eat this veggie raw cut up into sticks and dipped in hummus or sprinkled with fresh lemon/lime juice and chilli powder which is what I did today! Jicama is a low cal high nutrient veggie providing potassium, fiber, and calcium. Limes are filled with antioxidants, and chilli powder has been known to boost the metabolism, making this a health bunny approved quick & easy snack!

{Lime & Chilli Jicama Sticks} Jicama Ingredients Directions: Peel your Jicama with a sharp knife, don’t just skin it, slice it to where you can see some of the white part left on the skin. Slice up your Jicama into sticks. Drizzel (or drench if you are a lemon/lime lover like myself) your Jicama sticks with the lime. The lime juice gives a nice tart flavor, preserves the white color of the Jicama, and gives the chili something to adhere to. Sprinkle chili powder over the sticks, depending on how much of a spicy kick you want. Jicimaingreds

&& Enjoy! This also makes for a perfect on-the-go snack, just throw it in a zip lock baggie! Jicama1 Post Signiture

SKINCARE | PERLIER HONEY ROYAL GOLD ELIXIR [FULL REVIEW]

Skincare is something I’ve become pretty obsessed with over the past year or so. But I will say it can be a little hard for me to try something new on mah face without researching it first, just because my skin has absolutely no problem letting me know when it doesn’t like something, (thankkkks skin). IMG_7805

serum1 I was super excited to try out the luxurious Perlier Honey Miel Royal Elixir Face Serum, anything that says anti-aging catches my interest hahah, I know I’m only in my early twenties but hey! gotta get a head start on preventing those wrinkles ladies! The youthful ingredient is fresh royal jelly from African Bee’s, a natural source of antioxidants and vitamins said to stimulate cell renewal, collagen production, and skin elasticity. Once I got the serum it sat in my bathroom for about two weeks begging to be used, but I had a little breakout I wanted to clear up first so I could see if the product itself would cause any itself – for some reason I’m always afraid moisturizing products will do that! I’ve since been using the product for two full months, and have to say I’m kindof sortof obsessed. I incorporated the serum into my morning & night time regimen -yes I am still using my Josie Maran Argan Oil but only at night (I apply it after the serum). In the morning I like to cleanse and tone my skin, then hydrate it using the Perlier Serum. This product also uses pure rose distillate as an ingredient which helps to moisturize AND tone, so technically it can replace your usual toning step if you aren’t prone to breakouts. The serums formula is moisturizing enough to keep my skin supple and hydrated but lightweight enough to quickly absorb into the skin and wear under makeup. My skin is combination-dry, I blame the dry portion on living in the desert so finding good moisturizing products is important. Now if you’re wondering about any breakouts or skin irritations I haven’t noticed any or anything more than how my skin typically is, yay! Also I actually like the scent of this product, it’s hard to describe but very light, honey like, and pleasant.

Oh and it has gold reflects that are subtle, I LOVE how it also gives my skin a bit of a natural glow without making me look like a member of the Cullen family. It’s almost like mixing a teensy weensy bit of highlighter in with your foundation, or just giving you a little boost of life on those days where you are bare facing it. I use about 1-2 pumps of the product applying it to the face and neck area (don’t skimp out on your decolletage ladies – as this area can definitely age you!)  perlierserum1

Overall my skin has been loving the Perlier Serum and the moisturizing/anti-aging benefits it offers, however the only mehhh thing about the product to me personally is the steep $99 price tag. So would I re-purchase? My wallet and I are going to have to say probably not. #brokecollegestudentprobz

California Vibes {+ vlog}

Hi babes! Two weeks ago we took a much needed vacay to Cali. The first night the hubs and I stayed at a cute little resort on the beach in Carlsbad, which gave us both major cali. living lust. I highly recommend staying right on the beach if you can, it was so relaxing listening to the waves from our balcony and being able to step out of our room onto the beachy sand wasn’t too bad either. The ocean was freezing but well worth the goosebumps, the vlog clearly captures a wave destroying me btw, womp womp womp -__-

That night we just hung out and Cameron decided to get all cute and cook us a steak dinner before we watched the sunset(; The next night we drove into Long Beach for my cousins pre-wedding cocktail party, where I ate wayyyy to much yummy Lebanese food!

Friday, was beach day #2, this time Huntington with the family. Afterwards my Dad took us out to dinner, we at at The Original Fish Co. , if you are ever in the Long Beach area do yourself a favor and dine here! Their clam chowder and ceviche are to die for!!

Saturday morning my sister and I woke up bright & early to glam up some of the bridal party. I did makeup for Michelle, the beautiful bride… her mom, my Aunt Tony… and my cousin Alex, one of her bridesmaids. I always have the intention of taking before and afters of just pictures in general when I do makeup but I either forget or there’s no time (btw I’ve decided the LORAC Pro Palette is great for bridal)! The wedding ceremony was absolutely beautiful, and the reception was a blast! Haha when Cameron and I first grabbed our name cards with the table number on it we were a little bummed that we weren’t with anyone from my immediate family and we had no idea who was sitting with us. But surprisingly our table ended up being a riot, and referred to as the island of lost toys! The night was filled with laughing, good food, and dancing. We kept joking that we had gotten up to dance 3 times within 45 minutes and it was all to the exact same song hahaha seriously though, kudos to those who did the Dubke the whole song through. Don’t ask me what Dubke is, because apparently I had no idea either based off my dance moves.

Sunday Cameron and I had to leave around noon, since he had work that night. We missed a suprise anniversary party my mom threw for my grandparents 50th anniversary!! I guess the surprise ended up being ruined before the party started, but my grandpa said he was still surprised (he was wondering whose anniversary it was!! Hahaha bless him). cali1 cali2

I vlogged random bits and pieces of the weekend…yay for my first vlog, let me know if you guys want me to do more awkward vlogs:P

JUNE | POPSUGAR MUSTHAVE BOX

JUNEMUSTHAVE1 So monthly subscription boxes have become super popular lately & you can find them specialized in pretty much anything. If you know me, you know I am extremely indecisive. So when all these boxes started coming out I could never decide if I wanted to do a jewelry, makeup, fitness, or whatever else kindof subscription box. Reason mainly being because I wanted them all heheh.

POPSUGAR ingeniously answered my prayers and created a monthly “Must Have Box”. (Click here to see last month’s Must Have “Nature Box”). What I adore about the Must Have Box is that each month they compile full sized products which aren’t limited to one specific category. They hand pick the best products from fashion, beauty, home, fitness, and food.

Yep, you had me at fashionbeautyhomefitnessFOOD.

The subscription cost is $39.95 a month. All the products together in June’s box total up to $115 retail value, just to give you an idea of how much you’re actually saving. && if you use the promo code JUNESELECT10 you can save $10 off a 3 month subscription at musthave.popsugar.com (;

This month’s box gave me all kinds of beachy vibes….

My favorites from June’s box have to be the luxurious mint striped beach towel – love how lightweight it is so it’s perfect to throw on as a wrap when the temperatures drop, the citrus & jasmine scented body lotion- super moisturizing and smells divine, and oddly enough the book The One & Only – I don’t do too much pleasure reading but this book sounds like a cute relaxing summer read!
