Fit Friday: Tropical Yellow Smoothie


If you follow me on Instagram, you know I'm a huge fan of smoothies. I'm sharing one of my recent favorites on today's blog. It's a tropical yellow smoothie that you can easily recreate at home with 5 easy-to-find ingredients. 


1. The first thing you'll need is a high powered blender. I have a 1500 watt Ninja Mega Kitchen System. In addition to the regular blender, it comes with two single serving size cups so you can blend a perfect serving for yourself in a flash. It also comes with food processer and kneading blades. 


2. Place one ripe banana in the blender. 


3. Add a few spears of ripe pineapple into the blender. 


4. Add pieces of mango to your mix. I often use frozen fruit because they're flash frozen at their peak of ripeness and are nutrient-rich. They also thicken up your smoothie and provides a lovely chill to your beverage. 


5. Now add some chia seeds to the blender. I like to use my chia shots from The Chia Co.. Not only are they easy to carry around but incorporating them into your diet is a no brainer. 


6. Add a cup or two of coconut water. If you like a more liquid-base smoothie, add more. I prefer mine a little thicker. 


I love Vita Coco but feel free to use whatever brand is available to you. 


7. Blend until all the solids have been pulverized and the consistency is to your liking.  


8. Serve your tropical smoothie in your favorite glass and enjoy!

Beauty at NYFW


It's not all about fashion at New York Fashion Week. No. There is also a huge focus on beauty. Just like NYFW presents all of the must-have / in trends for the next season, it also showcases all of the hot beauty trends we're destined to see in the month ahead. 


This season, beautiful and healthy looking skin was all the rage. Most looks on the runway focused on this crucial foundation and kept the rest of the face pretty clean. There was a ton of "no makeup makeup" looks.


Take, for instance, Ryan Roche's Fall/Winter 2015 show. Every model was pampered with Jurlique skin care products in order to give each of them clean and hydrated skin.


Here are some of the skin care products used:
Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist
Jurlique Skin Balancing Face Oil
Jurlique Calendula Redness Rescue Moisturizing Cream
Jurlique Rose Moisture Plus Revitalising Gel-Lotion
Jurlique Balancing Day Care Cream
Jurlique Skin Balancing Cream Cleanser
Jurlique Rose Love Balm
Jurlique Age-Defying Nourishing Cleansing Oil


As mentioned, the makeup was toned down significantly from previous season. These makeup looks were kept bare-looking. What a better brand to perfectly capture this desired look than bareMinerals?



bareMinerals products used:
bareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer
bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating  Gel Cream
bareMinerals Correcting Concealer
bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Be Free (on the cheeks!)
bareMinerals Well Rested Eye Primer
bareMinerals Eyeshadow 4.0 Quad in The Happy Place
bareMinerals Stroke of Light Eye Brightener 
bareMinerals Frame & Define Brow Styler
bareMinerals Flawless Definition Mascara in Expresso


Nails were also keep equally bare. Ryan Roche's show included Nonie Creme (co-creator of butter LONDON) new mani-venture, Colour Prevails. The models used just a couple of coats of her Mennequin Hands CC Creme Basecoat.


I'm sure your skin will that the fashion powers-that-be for this minimalistic beauty trend. 









Beauty.com was the overall sponsor of the Ryan Roche show. A huge thank you goes out to them for granting me backstage access to bring you this breaking beauty news post.
