Blog Name Change

Hello, my pretties! ♥

Just very briefly I wanted to tell you all that I made the decision to change the name of my blog. It was just too confusing to have different accounts for everything. The full change for all social accounts will take a bit longer to happen due to some complications with each of the social media company's policies. Also, I will mention a lot of the links in the blog will not work properly because I have to go through every single post & change them manually. Apparently, I'm a glutton for punishment... :(

Please bare with me as things continue to be a bit wonky around here. I'm slooowly  working on everything in small periods of time & as often as I can. With the move & the holidays coming up, things are moving at snail pace, but at least they are moving along ☺

Thank you all for your understanding & support! I will be back full force before you know it. For now, I hope everyone is doing well. Sending you all tons of love & light as always...

Breakfast Green Smoothie


2 handfuls Baby Spinach
1 handful Cilantro
½ Banana
½ Apple (any kind)
5 large Strawberries (with stem)
1 tsp. Honey
1 cup 100% Orange Juice
2 cup Milk (any kind)


Add the baby spinach, cilantro into the blender. Then, add all your fruits. Lastly, add your liquids. Blend. Add ice, if you desire. Enjoy!


Hi everyone!

The reason why I wanted to share this smoothie with you guys is because I've set a short term goal for myself to help with my weightloss. I'll be doing Color Vibe 5K Run in exactly 2 months with my boyfriend & some of our friends. I'm very excited but also rather apprehensive about it since I'm not exactly in the best shape. Since the move, I haven't been very consistent with my healthy eating or my exercising. So, this is the perfect excuse to restart my workouts and eating better again...

Please, don't think this is a "weightloss" smoothie. It is not!  The reason why I drink it in the morning is because it has tons of vitamins, minerals, and all sorts of good stuff that help my fruit and veggie intake + gives me lots of energy that doesn't make me crash like other stuff I've taken before; however, it is packed with milk (we use 'whole' around here), fruit sugar & honey (non weight-losing ingredients per se). Also, I suffer from anemia (deficiency of red blood cells). The large amount of baby spinach helps my anemia and alleviates my "monthly issues" because of its rich iron content. I'm not a huge red meat eater, so this is the next best thing for me. Also, cilantro and apples are great detoxifiers and possess powerful antioxidants & anticarcinogens. I make sure to make enough smoothie every morning for myself and my 2 little ones. 

I hope you found this blog post helpful. I know this is a little out of the norm for me, but decided to post it since beauty truly begins from the inside. Like Drake said, "Beauty isn't about having a pretty face. It's about having a pretty mind, a pretty heart, and a pretty soul*" ...and a pretty healthy body that will last you a long time too...

Until next time...
P.S.: Oh yeah, I forgot to mention...I have a 2nd Instagram account dedicated exclusively to my attempting to lose weight. It's still in it's baby stages & I'm not a personal trainer, physician or even a health nut. I'm just trying to track down my progress. If you're interested, my username for that account is @lizzyloseslbs

* Yes, I quoted Drake.
