[Hello Spring!]

[Hello Spring!]

It's the first day of spring! Bring on the music festivals, short shorts, flower bouquets and bright spring salads. Spring, behind fall is my favorite season of the year because not only is it during my birthday (haha) but it's also the time when you finally can start baring your legs and wear more feminine, light-weight items. I'm all about simplicity and comfort when it comes to clothes so when I found this gorgeous Delahooke nude sweater, that was it. Ready to fill my life for many more sheer nude things and stacks from my favorite jewelry duo, Haati Chai x Amarilo

Recently, I've been asked a lot about my weight because I lost a bit of weight during the last couple times I have gotten sick. First, no, I don't have a problem. Second, yes, I'm okay. When it comes to body image, I'm a true believer in being the healthiest version of yourself whether you're a size 0 or size 12. Everyone has their own body type that is unique to them so I don't recommend ever doing anything too drastic to change yourself. With that said, I want to say that I am a naturally petite person and do not try to force myself to be at a certain weight level or clothing size because of blank. Upon accepting 2 different jobs on top of my blogging, I found less and less time to eat a normal-sized meal, so I would snack a lot throughout the day so of course my nutrition level wasn't where I wanted it to be, hence my numerous sick days. Since then, I have made a conscious effort to eating 3 meals a day, each with some nutritional value so my body doesn't feel deprived throughout the day. Plus, it gives you that natural energy that people are always talking about! Yup! It feels great. I have become less dependent on coffee and feel more energy immediately upon waking up. It's true what they say. You are what you eat so making a conscious effort to change your eating habits now will be beneficial to your life in the long-run. Let's live long and prosper, guys! Yes, Star Trek reference. I'll have a morning routine as well as a eating diary prepared for y'all so you can be inspired for this new season to eat right.

This season, I'm inspired to explore more healthy restaurants and recipes and wear simple but chic clothes that would work for any occasion because you really never know where your day will take you! If y'all would like me to do a lookbook for these types of looks, hit that heart at the end of this blog post or comment in the comment section. PS 10K giveaway is still on. Announcement coming to a blog near you! ;) Have a great weekend, guys!
