Perk up, Buttercup

Our wellness challenge continues with a treat! When tasks linger on, days wear on us, and life needs a pick-me-up, we like to rely on energy boosting bites-of-goodness packed with natural ingredients that invigorate our moral, metabolism and mental state. And who doesn’t love a snack that’s shaped like a doughnut hole and tastes a little like cake batter? Our favorite, no-bake recipes include some of these powerhouse ingredients:

Organic Chai Seeds: “Chai” in Mayan means “Strength” and the Mayans originally channeled the chai seed as an abundant and sustainable source of energy! One ounce of Chai Seeds contain 4 grams of protein and 11 grams of fiber. A little goes a long way with this rejuvenated super food. 

Nut Butters: Vitamin E, Protein, monounsaturated fats…all amazing things about nut butters that make them a heart healthy and substantial glue to many energy bites. 

Blue Agave: While agave nectar is still considered a sweetener and should be used modestly, this naturally super sweet sugar/honey substitute also contains nutrients that positively affect weight loss and cholesterol levels. 

Rolled Oats: These old-fashioned carbs are anything but flakey when it comes to healthy benefits. Oats are an amazing source of good carbs and fiber – two things that help maintain good metabolism and weight control. 

Some of our favorite, no-bake, energy bites!

Tom Ford // Our Sunglasses Muse

Tom Ford’s style is sexy, sleek and unapologetically bold. His brand has become a 21st century icon in fashion, known for clean, architectural lines and modern craftsmanship and detail on timeless silhouettes. We love Tom Ford sunglasses for their versatile yet stunning shapes, colors and metals. They go with everything yet add a clear sense of fashion and statement to every outfit you pair them with. TF has a following by headlining celebrities – Beyoncé, Kate Bosworth, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston (dare we put them next to each other?!), Gwen Stefani, Kim Kardashian and Justin Timberlake – and we are following their lead.

Keeping Up with this Dry Lip Routine

Winter is rough. Dry skin is rough. It can affect your whole body, including your lips! Our team has been using and loving Ogee Sculpted Lip Oil to keep our lips soft and hydrated through the winter months…and so has Kourtney! We’re keeping up with KK and think you should too! 

This all-natural lip oil glides over and moisturizes rough patches on the lips and has a light minty tingle that feels amazing and gives you an even, plump, lipstick/kiss ready lip. MWAH!
