San Clemente Snap Shots

by Gabi

This past Sunday my roommates were all gone and I had the day off from work, so I decided to hop in my car and start driving- with no idea where I was heading. I got onto Pacfic Coast Highway, rolled down my windows, jammed to good tunes and found myself in San Clemente; an awesome beach town full of good vibes and A LOT of surf inspo! Every once and awhile you have to get out of your comfort zone, go somewhere new and just explore! It was a good day to clear my head and have some me time- take a look at a few shots I took while exploring!!

- Confession: I am addicted to avocado. So living on Avocado St. would be a dream!  - 

- My new friend over at BC Surf Shop, go in he's pretty rad and the store is packed with awesome beach attire! -

- It was like everywhere I walked surf followed me, I didn't mind though! -

- Ended the day with a fish taco on the beach, nothing better than that! -


Happy Wednesday, XO.

OK, so how rad is this taco shop my friend Natalie and I stumbled upon in Hillcrest (side note she has a blog, Halfway to Harmony, check her out she’s adorbs)!! We fell in love with the bright colored walls and couldn’t help but snap a few pictures! I'm actually looking at these photos wishing I ran in and grabbed a fish taco! But ways, it was such a fun girls day full of sun, tea and LOTS of catching up!

Smoothie time!

by Gabi

Ok, so as some of you may know I am a HUGE smoothie junkie, I usually have one for 2 of my 3 meals a day!! I guess you could say I find it fun coming up with different fruit combos to make a yummy and light meal! One smoothie that will always be my favorite though is my BB&C (blueberries, banana, and coconut) smoothie!  I recently just started adding the coconut (because I am a tad obsessed) so if you’re not a fan just omit- it’s just as delicious without it!

What you'll need:

1/3 cup of blueberries (I use frozen to make the smoothie thicker)

1/3 of a banana

1 tbsp. of coconut

Vanilla Protein (how ever much your container calls a portion)

A dash of cinnamon (this helps speed up your metabolism- my favorite incredient for every meal!)

1 tsp. vanilla extract 

Ice cubs (the more you use the thicker the smoothie will be)

1/3 cup of water


Once you've gathered up all the ingredients, all you have to do is blend all together!

Mason Jar, Paper Straws

If you’re a coconut fanatic like myself sprinkle a little on top, stick a cute straw in your cup and enjoy! Check out VF soon for more smoothie recipes to help keep your bikini bods in shape for the up coming seasons! Xo
