There is nothing I love more than taking a look at all the latest editorials and picking out which ones are my absolute favorite. The one that caught my eye the most is this completely bonkers fashion spread coupled with insanely beautiful illustrations done by the one and only Jamie Lee Reardin. Her work is truly mesmerizing. Her unique, avante garde style has given her notoriety in the fashion illustration world and has been admired from everyone to Christian Dior and Rachel Zoe. Chris Nicholls the photogrpaher has captured model Kelly Mittendorf in a set of imagery that resemble a more colorful high-fashion version of Where The Whild Things Are. Think wild fur coats in a myriad of colors with a lithe brunette model running from one imgainary illstrated situation to the next.

Move over Pinkberry there is another yoghurt bowl in town, and the good news is that you can make it in your very own kitchen! I am a huge fan of these yoghurt bowls as they are so interchangable (you can sub any of the ingredients for what you like!!) and can be breakfast, a snack, or even dessert. Furthermore these delicious treats are merely put together which means there is no cooking time at all. So here is how to assemble this amazing antioxidant bowl:
1/2 cup of Greek yoghurt/coconut yoghurt
Handful of granola of your choice
7 strawberries diced
1 tsp of chia seeds
1 tsp of cacao covered pumpkin seeds
1/2 tsp of dessicated coconut
1/2 tsp vanilla powder
1 tbs of Goji berries
I like to simply layer the ingredients and make it look pretty before consuming. It's literally that easy and is so very good for you. Enjoy!!

So Autmn/ Fall has already started in most parts of the world, and though in LA we are still basking in the sun, I have altered my skincare routine to welcome the upcoming chillier (only slightly…) months ahead. Alternatively if you find yourself already battling the steady fall breeze, and possibly fighting the wind and rain then these products will also work wonders for you.
Next up is the SkinCeuticals Clarifying Clay Masque, which is one of my absolute favorites. It decongests and rids your face of all blackheads or any small whiteheads/millia you may have lurking under your skin yet doesn’t leave your face feeling stripped of all moisture once you have washed it off. The key ingredient in this mask is Kaolin, which is a great pore refiner, increases circulation, and also fight off acne. Its an amazing ingredient, and if you have ever tried any other Skinceuticals products before, you'll be happy to know that this product is a winner much like all of their other products. Definitely a MUST BUY! (I am so obsessed!)
Lastly, I couldn't include a list of anything without incorporating a juice into it. I am obsessed with juicing, and I really adore the juice shots or tonics most juice stores are now carrying. They are little concentrated bottles of wonders and always boast the most amazing properties. This one in particular is loaded with Vitamin C primarily from the Camu Camu it contains. Camu Camu is a berry found in the Amazon rainforest and it has been declared as the most potent source of Vitamin C in the world. (Read the benefits of Vitamin C above). I love incorporating Vitamin C into my diet whether it is through fruit or vegetables, but I especially appreciate it when it contains less sugar. Oranges are of course a lovely source of Vitamin C but one glass of plain orange juice contains far more sugar than the daily requirement (not to mention you will induce sugar from elsewhere through out the day as well) and nobody ever sat and ate 7 oranges in one go anyway! So, I enjoy finding other alternatives to get Vitamin C in my system that don't contain all that sugar, and Camu Camu is definitely one of them. This little bottle contains a blend of all the Vitamin C heavy ingredients on the label above and it is one of the yummiest and beneficial juice shots I have come across.
