NEW YEAR, NEW YOU: INTENTIONS & WELLNESS TIPS | PLUS A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS + WIN A $750 GIFT CARD TO AMAZON
I had a wonderful start to 2018 celebrating with family and dear friends by a bonfire on the beach with way too many fireworks (two extra-large boxes from Costco to be exact, we never thought it would end) and lots of food and drink for all! With all the fun and excitement of the New Year we must also remember that this is a time of reflection on our previous year. What can we work on going forward? What should we try to do more of or less of in 2018? What are some positive ways that we can not only do better for ourselves but for others as well? I’ve decided that this year I am done with resolutions! No more for me. We all must do what works for us and for me I just end up breaking those a few days or weeks in and then I’m done. So this year I have decided to set some intentions instead. I’m thrilled to share today my Intentions, Wellness Tips, and a Few Favorite Things for 2018. Not sure about each of you but I am definitely in need of a little detox from my trip. I enjoyed myself but I did fall off the wagon just a bit as far as my healthy eating and drinking goes. I do believe in moderation and I did still workout while on vacation (just obviously not as often as I do when I’m home) but I am ready to get back on my normal healthy track. You might remember some of my previous wellness posts: STAYING HEALTHY DURING THESE WINTER MONTHS, WORKOUT WEAR/ATHLEISURE + WELLNESS TIPS, my daily CRUCIAL FOUR MBREAKFAST SHAKE, COUPLES THAT TRAIN TOGETHER and MERRY NEW YEAR TO ALL for more information on what I do and believe in. Plus be sure to scroll all the way down the post for a chance to WIN A $750 GIFT CARD TO AMAZON. I love the timing with my latest giveaway because many items that I swear by can be purchased from Amazon website.
Smile Brilliant is an at home teeth whitening customized kit that will not only save you time but money as well. We all know that I can’t live without my cup of coffee each morning (I’d never make it through the day without it, along with my Crucial Four Shake), green tea every afternoon, and finally some red wine as well a couple of nights throughout the week. Yes, I do still drink my 75-100 ounces of water each day. However any combination of coffee, tea and red wine can and will wreak havoc on the color of your teeth. I used to think that my teeth were pretty white but then I started noticing some of my friends teeth and I soon realized that they in fact were no longer what I considered “white” to be. Being a fashion/lifestyle blogger and having to constantly take pictures all the time, it obviously is very important to me to have nice, pretty, white teeth. I’d like to take this time to tell you a little about Smile Brilliant~How To Make A Lasting Impression.

So when I was asked to try out Sun Basket: healthy organic cooking right at your doorstep, I jumped at the chance.
I find that staying healthy during these winter months to be the hardest for most people. While spending time with many friends and family members we quite often find ourselves overindulging during the holidays. This can lead to increased stress, a weakened immune system and even cause further problems with our digestive system.

This photo was taken during our last trip to Kauai for Christmas 2015 with the family. My husband and I had just lugged and set up all of our beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, snacks, and workout gear to the beach for the day. I was already feeling a little exhausted before our beach bootcamp workout even began. The next thing I know, I turned around to enjoy our ocean view and this is what I saw. It was the most gorgeous rainbow.
