Peachy Summer Salad

Yet another perfect way to utilize all those perfect farmer's market finds. I'm so happy to be back in a state where summer never ends. 

Fitness Friday?

The Health Hazards of Sitting - source: The Washington Post
There are tons of articles out there about the dangers of sitting. I believed them, but it wasn't until now that I really believed them. Because I've finally realized that the last two months of me sitting on my ass screwed. me. up.

Peach Mango Smoothie

Leftovers from the farmer's market are still standing strong. Well, they were. Until they were liquified in a blender and drunk by yours truly.

Bro Town and Tacos

Typically, those who finish the bar go on "bar trips" to somewhere tropical, exotic, and/or out of the country. My broke ass? I went to San Diego. And you know what? I loved every minute of it.

Whole Wheat Flaxseed Tortillas...or pita bread?


Here's just a really quick recipe to get you through your weekend get together. Homemade tortillas?? Oh you fancy, huh?...your guests will say. "Yes," you would reply, with a satisfied grin adorning your beautiful face. And if you aren't into praise or showing off, make them anyway cus they're tasty and will actually make those tacos, nachos, burritos, etc. just a little more guilt-free. Which gives some calorie wiggle room for margaritas.

Shrimp & Squash Blossom Ceviche

One of my favorite dishes is definitely ceviche. It's fresh, citrusy, and social; simply, a combination of my favorite things. I could eat an entire bowl of this stuff, and with how healthy it is, there's no need to feel guilty when I actually do it. Perfect, right?

Recipe: Date Coconut Energy Nuggets {vegan}

I wanted to call these Angel Poops, but I figured that wasn't the most appetizing name and voted against it. Do I regret it? Yes. Is that why I'm mentioning it now? ..mayyybeee

Nutritious Nutella???

Like basically everyone else in the world, I've gone back and forth between diets for quite some time. Regardless of what "diet" I'm on, however, I never try to deprive myself of too much. Back in the day (when I was young, I'm not a kid anymore, but some days I sit and wish I was a kid again), when I was training for my half-marathon, I was able to restrict myself much more. Then, I was eating around 1500 calories while working out for at least an hour 5-6 days a week. Nowadays, that just isn't happening.

Fitness Friday: Another Hike

Imagine over an hour on the Stair Master, but skipping three stairs every step and being afraid of falling to your doom.

Comfort Food: Meatloaf Edition

Meatloaf is fairly new territory for me. I think the only kind I've had were Filipino versions and they probably don't serve as the best representation. Plus, I'm still not sure how I feel about raisins in my meatloaf.

School's Out!

Big news, people. First, my apologies for being semi-MIA lately. I've been a bit preoccupied with finals, as I'm sure I've mentioned before. But guess what! I finished my last final! Which means I'm done with school, FOREVER. My last final EVER. I can't express how good this feels. Law school was just...not fun.

Recipe: Waldorf Chicken Salad Sandwich

I'm not the biggest fan of mayonnaise. But for some reason, I really like Waldorf chicken salad. I just love the mix of flavors and textures: a little sweetness from the grapes, saltiness from the chicken, crunchiness from the almonds, slight bitterness from the celery... it's got everything! But the calorie count in all that mayonnaise is just too much for everyday. So, I made a small adjustment and the outcome was just as delicious.

Matchup Monday: Rebecca v. Proenza

I know, I know. You all are probably thinking, "Christine, how you gonna try and compare anything to Proenza Schouler?!" I feel you, I really do. But my shallow pockets don't wanna hear it. And although these may not be carbon copies, they're both pretty darn beautiful.

Fitness Friday

I don't know about you guys, but all this studying and work on my computer has left my shoulders and back feeling like CUH-RAP. These stretches, however, have really helped me out.

The Secret's Out

Leather jacket: Joie | tee: H&M | denim: Old Navy | shoes: Loeffler Randall | watch: Kate Spade | necklace: Gorjana | sunglasses: Karen Walker | bag: Reed Krakoff

How cute are these flats? My feet feel so fancy in their peter pan collars. They were always so jealous of my adorned neck, so I figured I'd do them a solid and throw them a bone. My intentions may have been selfish, but they'll never know.

Also, guess what!

Is it summer yet?

I apologize to those of you who don't like the look of whole fish, but I think they're glorious. Meals like this make me yearn for summer even more.

In the Buff

Heeled Nudes of My Dreams

I'm all about nude heels right now and these are some of my favorites. Especially those floral ones! I mean, I know it's not exactly a nude, but it's close enough.

Recipe: Fig and Almond Granola

I feel like I've been posting a lot about breakfasts lately, but I guess I can't help it. I love food and I love starting the day with it. So, here's breakfast installment #427: fig and almond granola.

Fitness Friday

The past couple of weeks have been incredibly ridiculous. Finals are coming up fast and the cost of my severe procrastination has become stupidly apparent. Ya feel me??? I'm sure at least some of you do. Tis the season...

My Capsule Makeup Bag

The Capsule Makeup Bag: the answer to my terminal tardiness. How I always seem to convince myself that 15 minutes is enough time to get ready, I can't tell you. Here are some of my favorite and most convenient products, perfect for always keeping on hand!

Target is a dangerous place. I've consciously been avoiding the store because I'm essentially helpless against the financial black hole that is Target. The Target Effect - you go in needing/wanting one thing and you leave $100+ poorer. There's a comparable Whole Foods Effect that I'm also quite susceptible to... and to tell you the truth, I fell victim to both the other day.
