A Couple Favorite Healthy Snacks…

One of my new favorite healthy snacks are Kind grain clusters.  I decided to add it to one of my other favorite healthy snacks – Complete treats.  The result?  Delicious.  Here you go:



¬Ĺ cup of vanilla complete

1¬Ĺ cups of healthy grain clusters

1/3 cup honey

1/3 cup almond butter

Instructions:  Mix in a bowl and form into little balls.  Makes about 20.  I like to keep them in the fridge.


Accessory Spotlight: Scarves

Scarves are one of my favorite accessories in any season, but especially fall and winter. ¬†They are timeless, beautiful, sophisticated, and¬†practical as well. ¬†For someone who is almost always a little chilly‚ÄĒwhether it be air-conditioning or actual cold weather‚ÄĒa scarf is a perfect essential to almost any outfit. ¬†It can be conveniently wrapped around the strap of a purse when not in use.

Yet, when it is in use it can be styled in a variety of ways! ¬†One of my absolute favorite tutorials on how to wear a scarf is this video complied by Wendy’s Lookbook. ¬†A few of my favorites are the Bunny Ear, the Celebrity, and the DIY Infinity. ¬†I use the European Loop to tie it onto my purse (if my scarf¬†is too long, I fold it in half, long ways first). ¬†Take a look!

Do you have a favorite way to wear a scarf?


Accessory Spotlight: Lace Boot Cuffs

Loved shopping with my fellow co-worker, blogger, and friend, Kelli, the other day! These lace boot cuffs were one of the lovely things we found (we both couldn’t leave the store without them!). Check out the cute way she styled them on her blog! Love having these as a part of my styling this fall!:). Definitely check out her other stylish posts as well!

Boots are essential to every girl’s wardrobe. Especially in the fall and winter months. These adorable lace cuffs are the perfect accessory to pop out of a pair of boots.


Today I put my cute lace boot cuffs over a pair of tights. The cuffs can also be paired on bare legs or over jeans. They are the perfect way to add a feminine touch to any outfit.


Lace Boot Cuffs: Altar’d State $19.95
Boots: Carmen Harness Short, The Frye Company $298
Tights: Express $14.90

Happy Sunday!

One of my Favorite Things: Complete Shakes

One of the easiest additions I have made to my life to get healthier (besides simply taking these capsules each day with a glass of water!)


has been drinking a Juice Plus Complete shake or smoothie. All I do is add a scoop of chocolate or vanilla whole food based shake mix to a shake, and walla! I have eaten 49 different plants (capsules + shake)!  Great (and delicious!) way to start my day! It has enough protein to be a meal in itself. Here are some of my favorite recipes!

It’s super easy to¬†add some kale or spinach as well. ¬†Simply having the¬†Chocolate and/or Vanilla Complete mixed with water or almond milk in¬†the blender bottle (pictured in Chocolate Banana recipe pic) is wonderful when I’m in a hurry!


They’re great for as you get ready, are on the go, or relaxing by the pool!

 You can even make yummy snacks with the Complete!  Will post a recipe for those soon!

Does anyone else have any favorite Complete recipes they’d like to share?  Or any other healthy snack?
