Last week I wrote this short blog post discussing how to up your protein intake and why it is important. Almost immediately after, I saw a friend post a picture of some protein bites that she had made and I got to thinking how much I miss the bites from t.Loft back home. So, I set off to make my own. I got almost everything from Trader Joe’s. This recipe is super easy and only takes a few minutes.
Getting healthy protein on the daily is important so that we can keep our metabolism running, our energy levels up and blood sugar levels stable. Not eating enough good protein can lead to a plethora of symptoms — sluggish metabolism, low energy or fatigue, a low immune system, trouble building muscle mass and issues with blood sugar levels. As you become more active and focus on your fitness, protein plays a key role in giving you the energy needed to crush your workout and recover effectively after.
Oh YAS, the ACE Hotel. The perfect spot for our Palm Springs wedding. Chance and I both dig succulents, color, bold patterns and mid-century modern design so P.S. was a no brainer. Still within the U.S. but gives you that vacay vibe — snow on the mountain tops but desert terrain below. We truly wanted this special weekend of ours to be our guests mini-getaway.

Our trip to Cabo is over too soon. Both of us had never been so when some friends invited us to come join, we were eager to say yes. The opportunity came last minute and for the first time this year, we were able to take full advantage of our Companion Pass from Southwest. Best thing ever.
Fall is here y’all. The mornings and nights are getting cooler and right now I’m loving this new fabric from lululemon athletica. Their new line of wraps, jackets and hoodies are made from spacer construction. Spacer construction is technically tailored, giving you superior breathability and sweat resistant goodness. The fabric is super soft and light.
Recently I was fortunate enough to do a photo shoot with ThreadBuds, a super-cute tangle free headphone company located in Kansas City. The earbuds are wrapped in colorful threads to give the headphones a fashionable look that actually prevents them from getting tangled. During the shoot, I fell in love with the brand and its founders Maddie & Nick Paradise.
