I noticed I was getting sicker in 2014 because my work schedule was so crazy. I'd fly back and forth places, not get enough rest, and eat the worst "healthy" fast food. After my concussion I told myself that I'm going to start cooking, eating more organic foods, and get my health right. I hate cooking. Let me repeat. I HATE cooking. Like I would rather work out non-stop than cook. I would rather wear a pair of uggs than cook. Just kidding, I'd rather cook than wear uggs, that was me reaching but I seriously dislike cooking. I worked at a Middle Eastern restaurant from 14-21 years old so I'm over it. Anyways, I attempted Zucchini Pizza. It wasn't as disastrous as I thought it would be but glad it's over. Can't lie, I'd so rather be eating this giant strawberry pound cake behind me but healthy food will do for now. Also, I just have to say that I wish there was a behind the scenes to me trying to take these damn food pictures. They look pretty and all but I literally had to stand on the chair, put my foot on the counter for balance. It could've been a blog post itself. "Difficulties of taking food blog pics."

2 large zucchini
1 clove garlic minced
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup marinara sauce (organic is what I used)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
4 portobello mushrooms
1 Tbsp of oregano
4 fresh parsley leaves
3 fresh grape tomatoes

Preheat oven to 400. Cut the zucchini in half. Then in a bowl you stir together minced garlic, olive oil, and oregano. Brush it onto the zucchini halves. Take a spoon and flood the zucchini with it. Then take the shredded cheese and try not to over do it like me. I like putting a lot of cheese because reasons. I then picked parsley and put it on top with mushrooms and tomatoes but you can really put whatever toppings you like. Bake for 15 minutes. Then shove your face and tell me about your experience.

"A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others." -Ayn Rand

For years I've been experimenting with my nails. In high school I only liked them square. As the years went on I liked them pointy, then coffin shaped, and now I'm slowly getting into almond shaped nails. Since I've been living in Jersey, I get my nails done from Jazmine. She's my little nail fairy. You can click her name to direct you to her instagram page. She really lets me do whatever I want with them. Some days I'll go in wanting to be very simple and end up walking out with a ton of designs. I guess it's another way for me to be creative. I have the gold trim with the transparent nails now and I had the gold flakes when I went to Greece. The minimalistic light pink almost clear looking color has become one of my go-tos.

Here's another look from my November Boohoo shoot in Manchester. I absolutely love this entire look. I've always been into two piece coordinates sets and the sheer stripes make a classic look more modern. Plus, the little fuzzy backs of these strappy sandal heels are everything.

Winter Whites

Another great winter and really all year long combination is an entirely white look. There's something about Winter when it snows that makes me want to automatically wear white. I'm loving faux white fur coats. They pretty much go with everything. My go to for an all white outfit is a nice coat, pointed white pumps, and a white sweater tucked in to white skinny jeans.
