Tropical Skinny Girl Snack!

by Gabi

As spring is upon us and summer is quickly approaching, I felt today was the perfect day to share my favorite tropical fruits, with a kick! My mom and I started getting these “Mexican Fruit Cups” at the farmers market about 3 years ago, I’ve been hooked ever since! Once I realized how easy they are to make, it’s now my go-to Low Cal snack!

The goodies you’ll need!

1 Pineapple

1 Mango

1 Lime

Himalayan Pink Salt

Tajin Seasoning

- I love Tajin seasoning, it's also delish on avacado! -

Simply cut up your fruit, (if you’re not a fan of cutting fruit Trader Joe’s sells already cut mango and pineapple spears), put it in a mason jar (or a bowl or cup), shake on your seasoning and then sqeeze your lime!

Be sure to whip up this guilt free snack next time you and your girlfriends are laying by the pool with a margarita in hand- it’s delish!! Xo

Just a casual everyday outfit today guys! My 3 tricks to keeping simple outfits not so blah; a big bag, cool shoes, and of course piled on jewelry. You can never go wrong with an arm full of bracelets- one of my all time fav accessories is Sweet Bling’s wrap around bracelet, it makes it look like you're wearing so much more with just one! Enjoy your weekend Fringers! Xo

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!
