SKINCARE 101: INSIDE MY MEDICINE CABINET

Hello my friends,

Adeline here. I know I have promised this for a long time….but I am finally breaking down my favorite skincare products. Better late than never, right? I have dabbled in a pretty astonishing amount of products in my day (you get fairly desperate when you suffer from unrelenting adult acne) and I’m here to give you the scoop on what’s worth it when it comes to stocking your skincare arsenal.

Spicy Vodka Sauce

Ok, so this spicy vodka sauce isn’t really “vodka sauce” at all, in that there’s no vodka present, nor is there a boatload of heavy cream, ┬ábut it feels just as rich, indulgent and so satisfying. This is comfort food at it’s finest and it doesn’t take long to whip up at all.

Vibrant Guide: St. Pete, FL

IMG_0425

Hi friends. Welcome to my very first ‘Vibrant Guide’!

Here’s a little back story: My boyfriend is in his final year of medical school, therefore we have been and will continue to be traveling all over the country this year, so that he can audition at different hospitals. What I love about this, is getting to actually live in a new place for a month or so and truly get a feel for the area. We most recently spent the past two months in St. Petersburg, FL. I’ve decided to start creating Vibrant Guides aka a run down of all the places both vibrant (and pure) that you should check out should you ever find yourself in the area. Here we go!

Grapefruit Avocado Basil Bruschetta

As I previously mentioned on Instagram, it’s certainly reaching to dub this appetizer ‘bruschetta’, but it just sounds nicer than calling it “a bunch of ingredients cut up and plopped onto a cracker”, you know? So, here we are: grapefruit avocado basil bruschetta. I developed this recipe in partnership with Truly Spiked & Sparkling, as I love their grapefruit & pomelo flavor and wanted to create an appetizer that complements it perfectly, and oh boy, this does.

Skin Health Meal Prep

IMG_0177

As I’ve mentioned now a time or two, I used to struggle with hormonal cystic acne. Now, to say it 100% in past tense wouldn’t be entirely accurate, as I’m still ever evolving, and experimenting with different foods and activities that can make my skin condition fluctuate. So, while my skin is for the most part healed, I will still get one or two breakouts every now and then. This happens like clock work after a weekend ((like this past weekend, for me) of one too many cocktails, sugary indulgences and french fries, but, guess what? I’m okay with that. It’s called LIVING LIFE my friends. You can’t ‘eat clean’ and live a perfect healthy lifestyle all the time, you’ve gotta liveeee a little (I mean, actually YOU can do whatever YOU want and makes YOU feel your best, but this is how I feel and what I need sometimes to stay sane). Anyways, when this happens, I don’t panic…I know what my skin needs to bounce back as quickly as possible and get back to glowing healthy status. Enter: skin health meal prep…

Majik Mermaid Bites

I’ve been trying to really cut back on my sugar intake lately, so I wanted to create a high fat treat that has almost no sweetener, but is still super decadent and keeps me satisfied. Enter: majik mermaid bites. These little nuggets of joy remind me of the ocean, they’ve got blue and green hues that come from blue majik and spirulina (hence the name!). They’re loaded with healthy fats from coconut, walnut, and MCT oil; plus lots of fiber from hemp and chia seeds. This recipe is super adaptable and easy to make, find it below:
