I’ve been living under a rock this past week due to some dreadful chest cold, and it has been so long since I’ve been sick that I forget how incredibly isolating and indoors the resting process can be. As one of my closest friends, Daniela Moreno, had just gotten back from teaching yoga in Paris, I was reminded of all the wonderful picnics and parks that I frequented on my first trip to Europe with another super close friend of mine, Ashley Holliday.
We’d lounge the day away in King’s Garden in Copenhagen surrounded by the most attractive and stylish blondes that could inspire a lifetime of style. We drank white wine and were free, no worries. So per my almost recovery, a picnic at Silver Lake Meadow was in order. To keep all of our immune systems high, I made Vitamin C packed raw super truffles inspired by the fabulous Good Bites. Here is the recipe Daniela, Jamie Arrigo and I ate right up, Raw Super Truffles.
I started following Alexandra via Instagram quite some time ago and I couldn’t be more in love with the dynamic recipes she crafts for her blog, In My Bowl. My all-time favorite has been her Hot Pink Monkey. So today, this Washington, DC based nutritional medicine student, wellness warrior and plant based vegan is here to share one insanely nutritious, colorful smoothie. Meet the very inspiring Alexandra Dawson.
I’ve known Gavin for years now and she is one of the most positive, inspiring beings to grace this world. Her hair is something that all women dream about, and her spirituality is rock-hard with love as its foundation. On top of all of this, she is hands-down one of the most interesting artist in LA’s music scene. One of her shows will leave you dancing with magical vibes for days to come. Meet this beautiful soul as you’re going to start hearing about her everywhere if you haven’t already—Gavin Turek.
Sitting in the most quant neighborhood of Long Beach, rests the beautiful home of this freshly transplanted Brooklyite. This is where she hand blends her most divine, luxurious, uniquely scented body and face oils. Impeccable design meets kind and healing energy is exactly the way to describe her environment. Sweet hospitality filled the air as she prepared perfect Dahl, ginger-lemon tea and explored the whole line of her oils with me. Mark this product in your books as it is going to be your new favorite oil. Meet Angela Shore of Jiva-Apoha.
