    Reduce Waste–Even on the Go!

    Don’t be Wasteful The average person generates about 4 pounds of trash a day and about 1.5 tons of solid waste per year. Americans make enough to fill Busch Stadium from top to bottom twice a year. This amount of waste equals about 200 million tons of garbage per year (source: dosomething.org)! I believe in the mantra, “have less and do more” and I think that this should apply to everything. Not just material items. Everywhere I go, I bring a water bottle with me…

    Earn Money Back from the Places you Already Shop

    Get Some of that Money Back in your Pocket Being a blogger (especially if you’re new) is definitely an investment. Yes, I get SOME complimentary items but I do still have to spend my own money at this point (one day, ya’ll, one day…). Like many, I’m not made out of money and I am always on the hunt for great deals. Wouldn’t it be super nice to get money back for those coins you spent your hard-earned money on? Fret no more, my loves…

    Get In Shape–My Favorite Health & Fitness Apps

    This is the time of year that I like to call, “New year, new me season“–the gym is packed at all hours of the day, grocery lines are filled with people who have nothing but fruit and veggies in their carts and our TVs are inundated with commercials promoting weight loss programs. Getting in shape and living a healthier lifestyle requires discipline and holding yourself accountable. Fitness apps are a great way to keep yourself in check and I want to share a couple of…

    Candice Ann X Nom Dudes X Jeng Chi Restaurant

    Dallas is full of delicious NOMS so when I was given the opportunity to partner with Nom Dudes and my good friend Jessica (Vo) Thai, I jumped at the chance! We went to Jeng Chi Restaurant and had a tower of dumplings, their famous green onion pancakes and washed it all down with dessert! The dumplings were bursting with flavor and if you’re like me, they have a ton of vegetarian options. One of the things I really respected about Jeng Chi is the science behind…

    Gettin’ Leggy with it!

    I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my leg workout routine so I figured I’d share an example of what typical leg day is for me. For the most part, I fit in two leg days per week because in order to get the results you want, you HAVE TO work your legs hard. Think about it– we use our legs every day. It’s probably one of our most, if not THE most utilized part of our body so the only way to get…

I find joy in doing different things with my nutrition, switching up my exercise routines and seeing my results. I find thrill in the discipline and commitment it takes to be healthy.  I’d like to preface this post by saying I am not a certified personal trainer nor am I a nutrition specialist. I know what works…
