Passion Xo Sun cocktail!


Well it happened. Summer has come and gone. Pretty soon it will be time for changing leaves, pumpkin lattes, and scarves. I love summer so much though I don’t ever want to let it go. Maybe that is why I live on an island! ;)

I got  a chance to sample a wonderful new beverage made by Passion XO called Sun. It’s a passionfruit flavored cognac that is smooth on the palate and leaves you longing for a hot day. It’s sweet but not fruity and goes down smoothly.

There are other flavors! Passion XO combines Birkedal Hartmann Premium XO Cognac with a variety of natural fruit juices. It is currently available in three exotic flavors: Passion Fruit (Sun), Pomegranate (Pink) and Blue Curacao (Blue). All are smooth and refreshing. They can be enjoyed chilled, on the rocks, or used as mixers with other premium spirits such as vodka, rum, Tequila or Champagne.

FiberChoice get picky challenge update.

Hi friends! I am writing to you from the amazing city of Bangkok! I will be returning to the states soon, but I wanted to update you on my 30 day challenge with fiber choice!

The challenge is almost wrapping up and I have to say I am impressed with the results. I have been continuing my 2 tablets of weight management sugar free strawberry tablets 2 times a day.

Fiber-Choice-Weight-Management-Sugar-Free-Strawberry-Chewable-Tablets-90-Count-0-262x300 (1)

Everyone told me that coming to Asia would have my stomach super confused and sick. I am happy to report (and a little embarrassed haha) that I have been completely regular and on time every single day. I have not had one issue with being able to go to the bathroom.

It’s been great because I have been eating all kinds of crazy food over here and not nearly enough vegetables. I know by taking my FiberChoice pills that I am getting the dietary fiber I need to make myself regular.

I am feeling really good. My regular psyllium husk pills always helped me in the bathroom department, but honestly I would have to say I am having better results with Fiber Choice.

I am looking forward to getting back into the states and continuing on my fiber quest.

Thank you for helping my month and vacation run smoothly. Ha. Ha. Ha!

I will be back with some special offers and updates for you guys soon.

Thanks for reading!



Vacation is coming so quickly! We leave for LA on the 19th, and Thailand on the 22nd. So excited!! Sorry I have been quiet. I have just been walking a lot and eating healthy. Lots of water. Vacation mode has me seriously motivated. I can’t wait to travel all around the world.


Hope you all well..


Love you all! 


The 30-Day Get Picky Challenge with Fiber Choice.

**This 30 day Get Picky Challenge and this post is sponsored by FiberChoice**
So I try to keep it real with you guys. I share a lot. My entire health related journey has been a roller coaster of ups and downs for the past three years. This might seem awkward to write about or read (it totally is) but now I am going to get to the point. Fiber. We need it. We should all be going to the bathroom regularly. Yay for healthy pooping! I take psyllium husk every single day to make sure I am getting enough fiber in my diet to keep myself regular.

This summer I was contacted by  to join them in their get picky challenge. I was kind of confused. Do I want to talk about fiber pills? Do I want to switch and try a new fiber pill? Their pills contain prebiotic fiber that can help aid in digestion as well as keep you regular. After I read more about the product I decided I had to join the challenge. It’s only 30 days and I am all about helping my system work smoothly.

They have a ton of options and flavors. I chose the weight management sugar-free strawberry tablets. They are sweet and chewy. Kind of like a treat for someone like me who is on a low carb diet. I have 4 a day.


“Each serving of FiberChoice is packed with inulin, the same healthy fiber found naturally in many fruits and vegetables. Even better, inulin is a prebiotic fiber, and prebiotics nourish probiotics — the ‘good’ bacteria in the digestive system. So with two little tablets, you get the general benefits of fiber while supporting the immune system, digestive tract — and your overall health”.

Most Americans are only getting about half of their recommended fiber grams a day.

I have been using the product for a week and so far so good. I can’t wait to let you know how the rest of the month/challenge “goes”. Get it?!?! Ha!

Check out their website for coupons and more info. I join you all to get picky with me! Their products are readily available.

Mid-August is flying towards us, and I’m greeting it with mixed emotions. On one hand, I’m looking forward to the end of hot and sticky days; on the other hand, the end of summer means saying goodbye to kayaking, swimming, and eating nothing but ripe fruit for dinner. As a result, this month becomes this weird, in-between territory, caught somewhere between sandals and new school supplies.

To deal with this, I’ve decided to embark on some mini-upgrades, ways to take advantage of these last hot days while looking forward to autumn. You know, like filling up the last page of a notebook before cracking open a fresh new one (pro tip, y’all—whether you are in school or not, you NEED new pens and planners for fitness/diet tracking…best feeling ever!)

First up is my exercise routine. The most consistent workout, the one I do all summer, is to go…

Skinny noodles shirataki review.

I finally got a chance to try my skinny noodles last night. I wish I had tried them earlier. I am super impressed. If you are into asian dishes like stir-fries, soups, pad-thai…this is IT. The noodles were very thin. They really have no taste. Very neutral. They pick up the flavor of the sauce you put them in. So versatile. My next plan is to put them in a some kind of soup.

20140703-110838-40118971.jpgI made stir-fry with my noodles.

20140703-110840-40120944.jpgYou can use whatever veggies you want for yours. Just chop them all up.

20140703-110841-40121671.jpgAdd a bit of oil to your pan and get the veggies cooking.

20140703-110839-40119863.jpgWhile my veggies were cooking I started draining the noodles. I drained them 3 times.

20140703-110842-40122631.jpgI cooked my chicken on the side as the veggies were cooking. I can’t find my wok so the process took a bit longer!

20140703-110843-40123194.jpgAdd cooked chicken and spices. I used some ginger and some ponzu sauce + a tbsp of peanut butter.

I used a paper towel and got out any extra water from the noodles. I simple popped them into the pan and mixed everything together.

20140703-110843-40123759.jpgThe final product. It was delish. Peanut/soy sauce was amazing and the noodles added a lot of volume with barely any calories! Super excited to try the rest of these guys!



Don’t forget I am running a giveaway for these noodles right over here– 5 packs!
