Review: Mamma Chia Organic Chia Granola Cluster...

Let me introduce you to my new favorite snack foods. Mamma Chia Organic Vitality Bars and Organic Chia Granola Clusters are so deliciously fantastic. They're both packed with heart healthy chia seeds, healthy fats, and plant-based protein. They're also all organic, gluten-free, and made with 100% whole grains in the case of the granola (the bars aren't grain-based). Want omega-3 fatty acids (a whopping 1000mg of them) in a sweet, chocolatey, delicious and portable snack?Mamma ChiaVitality Bars have ...

Healthy Beauty: Model Skin Care Secrets

I am really fortunate to have clear skin and people - whether its makeup artists or other models at shoots, friends and family in day to day life, or random acquaintances - often ask me what my skin care secrets are. Part of having skin clear is often genetics, but there are also a lot of go-to tips and tricks that models and others in the beauty industry use to keep our skin healthy and beautiful, despite the stress of heavy makeup at shoots and events. Putting on and taking off a full face of makeu...

Recipe: Best Ever Blueberry Muffins

Want a muffin recipe that will make everyone want to have breakfast at your place? These blueberry muffins are it!  Perfectly soft and fluffy on the inside and crunchy on the streusel-covered top, theyre melt-in-your-mouth amazing.

Happy Fall: Covering Your Bases with Aflac

It’s finally starting to feel like fall and just in time – today is the first official day of fall!  Doesnt New York wear it well? While summer is great for all things water sports, fall is when we shift our focus from the coastlines to the mountains. I love, love, love the beach, but I also truly adore the mountains! Hiking is one of my favorite day trips, camping has that nostalgic glow (I was a girl scout for twelve years), apple picking is a blast and you get to go home with a ton of yummy snacks, ...

Recipe: Chococonut Shake

While you would expect the cravings for ice cream and milkshakes to be greatest in the peak of summer, when its crazy hot, thats not always the case!  I used to work at an ice cream shop and on the really scorching days, we saw just as little business as on the cold, rainy days. When its too hot, something super sweet and rich isnt that appealing! Its those warm, but not hot, late spring or early fall days (like now) when were in the mood for a cold and creamy treat.  Yum! Still, we all want to look o...

Summer Style: Manhattan Parks, Shades of Pink, ...

Before we bid a final adieu to summer, let us enjoy the last beautiful days of summer.  Even in NYC, a daytime getaway to a downtown Manhattan park can be a romantic daydream. Without more discussion, I hope you enjoy this final taste of summer style! Read more »

The Farmer's Market, Delivered: Eating Local wi...

Ive long been a fan of Peapod for grocery delivery when life gets crazy. The service allows you to order all of your normal groceries at normal grocery store prices and have them delivered straight to your front door, so that a busy schedule doesnt mean you have to turn to fast food and eating out every night! Peapod has recently debuted something incredible - the Peapod Local Farm Box! While Peapod brought the grocery store to you (and still does), the Peapod Local Farm Box brings the farmers market ho...

Recipe: County Fair Apple Pie

Before I get to todays dessert recipe, I have exciting news to share. The Princess Games was released today!  King Winkle and Queen Periwinkle have a problem. They need a princess, and they need her fast. With the upcoming peace-keeping marriage between Prince Linus of Branninia and the princess of the fair Kingdom of Hoggenbottom, its a bit risky to admit they dont have a princess. Instead, they decide to host The Princess Games. Soon enough, the fairest maidens of the land are gathered in front of ...

Latest Finds: A Purely Elizabeth Granola Review!

Granola is my favorite sweet cereal, hands down.   Despite its healthy reputation, however, some commercial granolas can be unhealthier than even the worst of your childhood sugar cereal favorites!  Granola is very dense and can pack a lot of sugar and fat into a very small portion (who eats a measly quarter cup?) and Ive seen boxes of granola where the ingredients list was longer than a Faulkner sentence and featured more chemicals than an orgo exam. No thanks! Luckily, not all granolas are candy in ...

7 Reasons to See Pixar's 'Inside Out'!

Minions comes out in just a few days! Im not sure who among I, the 22-year-old, and my little sister, the 10-year-old, is the more excited one. An accurate representation of how were responding to the approach of the Minions movie releaseStill, before you rush to the cinemas to see Minions, there is another movie that is already out in the cinemas that you should definitely consider watching. Pixars Inside Out! I had high hopes for this movie, because its a Pixar movie and I love all things Disney, b...

Recipe: Best Banana Bread

Banana bread recipes are almost as bad as chocolate chip recipes - there are so many of them and theyre all slightly different, but its difficult to sift through the mediocre ones and get to the gold. This is the gold. Youre welcome. Seriously! This bread is soft, moist, flavorful, and easy to make on top of it all!  The walnuts can easily be left out with no other changes if you have someone with an allergy, but they really do work nicely with the flavors and textures in the bread. If youre on the ...

What Is In My Bag? Girl on the Go Edition!

Some stereotypes are rooted in truth. The widely spread perception that its impossible to go into a Target and only buy one thing is definitely one of those, at least for me! Target always seems to have everything I need, not to mention a whole host of things that I didnt realize I needed it until I saw them posed alluringly on the perfectly organized shelves of my favorite one-stop shop... But lets focus on the things that we actually need today, shall we? I always think whats in my bag posts are a ...

Recipe: Baklava Salmon

Need something healthy and delicious to serve your guests (or just yourself) for dinner? Salmon is full of heart-healthy fats and muscle-building, energy-level sustaining protein!  There are many great ways to serve salmon, from grilled to baked to smoked and so on, but heres a new, fresh way to enjoy it! Baklava salmon takes less than 30 minutes to make and is mostly savory, but slightly sweet, making it a fun switch-up from your usual ways of serving salmon. I served it with oven-roasted Greek potato...

Luxe Lashes: No Extensions Required

My neighbors son has the thickest, most decadent lashes ever. And hes a nine year old boy. A BOY. How is that fair? While the fortunate child is completely indifferent to his lashes, most style-loving girls and women arent. Eyelashes, as the frame for your eyes (which are, in turn, a focal facial feature) are one of the areas where makeup can make the biggest positive difference in your appearance. Me with falsiesFull, dark lashes make your eyes pop! Read more »

Paying for College: Options if Scholarships Are...

Its crazy how much our world has changed in just a few generations. My parents were both first generation college graduates, but when it came time for me and my sister to think about colleges, we thought more about which college than whether to go to college. Positions that used to be filled by high school grads, like secretary, nurse, personal assistant, etc., are now being filled almost exclusively by college graduates. As more and more people go to college, it becomes more and more necessary for a lo...

The Secret of the Traveling Peanut Butter

Its hardly a secret anymore. Peanut butter is great and so is powdered peanut butter. I like to keep both in my kitchen! Here are some of the benefits of powdered peanut butter (the first particularly applies in the summer or anytime a peanut butter lover travels to a place with an uncertain peanut butter supply, like Germany): * TSA-friendly for your carry-on, since its not a liquid or a crea * High in plantbased protein * High in fiber * Lower in fat * Can be used to replace part of the flour in baki...

Summer Style Essentials: The Weekend Getaway Sh...

content discovered on Monday, June 8, 2015 in beautiful fashion girl millennial mixed girl outfit pretty style summer

Summer is here! I know, I know, you know. Its not news anymore. But summer just requires that sort of enthusiastic announcement of its presence. One of my favorite things to do in summer is to travel. Beach trips are especially great in summer, because the heat can be so stifling that theres nothing quite like a nice long soak in the ocean to cool you off. Summer travel is all about fun and spontaneity, though, so you dont want to be bogged down with loads of luggage - thats especially bothersome if ...

Peanut Butter Everything!

National Peanut Butter Cookie Day is coming up - it's June 12!I'm ahugepeanut butter fan, so I will happily celebrate any and all peanut-related food holidays. I know how I will celebrate National Peanut Butter Cookie Day - by baking Halfway to Heaven Peanut Butter Cookies!If you aren't a big fan of peanut butter cookies, these still might change your mind - they're like even better Fluffernutters or Girl Scout Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies! If you're convinced that peanut butter cookies aren't for you,...

5 Exotic Apple Variants

Apples are The. Best. Think Im wrong?                                                     I have a very real obsession with apples. My favorite varieties include Crispin, Pink Lady, Envy, Fiji, and Jazz apples, more or less in that order. But here are some exotic apple variants you may not have heard of yet! I havent even tried all of them yet, but hopefully some day. Read more »

Healthy Hacks in Germany

Humans are an incredible species. We can survive - and thrive! - on a wider diversity of diets than pretty much any other species! While some cuisines, like the Mediterranean and Japanese cuisines, are known for being healthy, any world cuisine can be healthy. Today, lets take a look at how a cuisine known for heavy meats and less-than-fresh foods can actually be very healthy when done right. Here are healthy hacks for Germany! Read more »

A Healthier Chocolate Choice with Plamil!

It turns out that the UK has more to offer than great tea and awesome accents. Im half-German, so Im bound by loyalty to maintain that German chocolate is The Best (and because it is) but Plamil Chocolates from England offer some stiff competition! Beyond taste (excellent) and mouth feel (creamy-licious), Plamil Chocolates offer options that fit a lot more ways of eating than the candy traditionally does! Whether youre vegan, dairy-free, nut-free, low-sugar, or even sugar-free, their no sugar added b...

Recipe: Kitchen Sink Salad

To me, summer has always started on June 1 and will always start on June 1.  I used to consider summer to be June and July, with August leading into fall (thanks to the start of school) but now that Im out of school and base my judgments more on weather than an arbitrary academic calendar, most of August is firmly part of summer, with a transitory week or two at the very end.  Anyway, this year its already feeling like summer in NYC and its only mid-May! Im quite happy that Ill have reprieve in the (ho...

Summer is just around the bend and, judging by the weather in NYC lately, it may even be coming a little early this year! Im going to be out of NYC this summer and while Im excited for a change of pace, Im sad that Ill have to leave NYC (temporarily) soon. Im going to be traveling by train (to Boston, for the month of June) and by airplane (to Germany, for the month of July), so here are my travel essentials for any kind of travel - land, air, or even sea!

Recipe: Spiced Mango Jam

Breakfast foods are, hands-down, my favorite kinds of foods. Breakfast for dinner is de rigueur for me and I love it! With summer just around the bend, and the hot, sunny days in NYC making it feel like summer is already here, heres a spiced mango jam recipe that summery and fun!  Im going on a Eurotrip this July (whoot) and even though Im not going to Finland, I decided to make this snack/breakfast Finland-inspired.Read more »

Work-Week Convenience with a Discount!

Who else cant believe that its already the second week of May? Summer is just around the bend! While the approach of summer can mean anything from travel, to more time outdoors, to just soaking up the sun on your way to work, the time before summer often can get a little hectic. With so many people going on vacations during the summer months, a lot of work is front-loaded and that makes May a little crazy! Luckily, a crazy busy schedule doesnt mean that you cant enjoy balanced, nutritious meals that ta...

Going Out: My Beauty Routine!

Even when youre a twenty-something girl living in NYC, going out is not always appealing in winter. But when the weather warms up and the sun starts beaming happiness down at us on a regular basis, going out becomes so much more appealing! Im a model, so on some days (when I have evening photoshoots) Ill just leave on my makeup from the shoot to go out. It makes getting ready much easier! But usually I dont have this kind of setup to get ready before going out: Behind the scenes of a photoshoot, in ...

Recipe: Vegetarian Pad Thai

I'm on a mission to cook my way around the world! It's a lot of fun to explore different cultures and food can be such a big part of culture. Everyone uses spices differently and there''s so much to be learned when you venture out of your comfort zone in the kitchen! I decided to attack a meal that sounded fairly intimidating to me - pad thai. I was pleased to find that it turned out well from the get-go and after some tweaks to increase authenticity, here's a recipe that I'm happy to share with all o...

Healthy Hacks in NYC

The Big Apple is a must-see on any European travelers US travel list and most American travelers travel lists, too. Ive been lucky enough to live in this amazing city since last June, as well as for various month to three month chunks over the past few years, and the longer I live here, the more I fall in love! This can actually happen in NYC and it does, regularly. How could you not love this city?As a New Yorker (Im not going to lie, thats still fun to say) Ive picked up a lot of tricks about how to...

Mujaderrah is a simple Indian dish of spiced whole grain brown rice and lentils, served with sauteed onions and sour cream, thats high in fiber, heart-healthy, and suitable for a wide range of diets, including a vegetarian (and even vegan, if you substitute vegan sour cream) diet. Its really simple, basic, and budget-friendly, but absolutely delicious. Embrace the simpler, but exo...

The Best Acai Bowls in Hawaii!

Summer, and summer break for those on an academic calendar, is rapidly approaching. Its the perfect time for a cyber getaway - to Hawaii! I had the most amazing vacation of my life this past fall. I went to Hawaii (a split stay between Oahu and Kauai) for ten days with my (then) boyfriend! It was expensive, but so worth it. Hawaii is the frickin BEST. Hawaii is stunning, fun, peaceful, relaxing, multicultural, rich in biodiversity, and also incredibly delicious! I highly recommend saving up and going s...

Safe City Living for the Single Girl!

I moved to New York City last summer after graduating from Harvard and Ive loved every minute. Ive wanted to live in New York City since I was in middle school, so its exciting that I finally get to live here every day! From last summer in NYC - I cant believe its already almost that time again!My mom, however, does worry sometimes about me living all by myself in the big city. She gets that Im a grown up, but everyone needs a social network for security! Friends are a great way to get that social netw...

"If You're Not Rich, Be Attractive"

Lets face it - we all get a lot of advice, solicited and not so much, all the time. And some of that advice? Well, its just straight-up shitty. But heres the thing about shitty advice: sometimes theres a nugget of gold hidden in all that sooty black coal.  I realized a while ago when, at a fashion show after-party, a man gave me this posts title as advice. He was (a) rich, (b) proud of it, and (c) not on my potential friends list. Pair all  of that with the fact that he followed that golden advice up...

Review: Greenlite Vegan Meal Delivery Service!

I recently got to try a new-to-me vegan frozen meal delivery service called Greenlite Meals! The meals arrive in an insulated box inside a cardboard shipping box, with cooler packets inside and the meals all packaged in space-conserving freeze-wrap packages. As you can see, the sides and the entrees are packaged separately. Im actually quite a fan of that style of packaging, because you can mix and match the sides and entrees to create the meals that youre in the mood for! Read more »

5 Things I Wish Existed

The world is full of wonderful things (the internet!) and less wonderful things (the selfie stick) but sometimes the things we really need want dont exist. Heres a short list of five things that would be awesome if they existed. Date-bots. We would send them to go do all the awkward first dates for us, then cut in for the second date with the good ones.                 The guys would never notice the difference, right? Read more »

12 Lessons I Learned While I Was 21

I turn 22 today (HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!) so its time to reflect of life lessons and experiences from my twenty-first year of life. Its been a very full year of crazy highs and painful lows. I graduated from Harvard, I discovered the addictive (but sometimes helpful!) social media network that is Instagram (follow me @danaikadzere), I made new friends but fell out of touch with some old ones, I experienced my first real relationship and my first real heartbreak, and so much more. Here are 12 lessons tha...

Dating: 12 Year Old Expectations vs. 21 Year Ol...

Its undeniable that progress is a constant thing in human society and that our world is always undergoing cultural evolution. Its not always linear (remember that half-a-second reemergence of chokers?) and sometimes a progressive step is derivative of a much earlier version (ie: T-swifts signature crop top/high-waisted pant/skirt pairing, a classier take on the early 2000s crop top/hip-hugger pairing). So yes, the world is changing. But somethings, like human interactions, stay fundamentally constant. ...

Ive lived in NYC for almost a year now (and over a year collectively, if you add all the random months of temporary residence over previous years together) so Ive decided that the proper way to honor the fact that Im somewhat a New Yorker now is with a New York bagels recipe! These have the bagel crust, the bagel chewiness, and the bagel flavor - theyre all around the real deal!

Things I'd Rather Do Than My Taxes

Being a grown-up is awesome when it comes to deciding exactly what you do every day, but sucks when it comes to boring responsibilities. How I feel about doing taxes.Like taxes.

Review: Chinoa Bites

I love breakfast - its my favorite meal of the day! So much so that I even eat breakfast for lunch and/or dinner often.  But sometimes, no matter how much you love breakfast, its tough to get up early enough for a leisurely sit-down breakfast.  Chinoa Bites have all the goodness of a healthy granola in convenient on-the-go bites that are easy to eat at your desk at work, in class, on the train, or wherever you are.  With this breakfast, you get that extra bit of sleep and you get to start your day on ...

My Style: New Yorker Chic

One of my favorite things about NYC, after the convenience of having everything right there and so many great opportunities, is that people are a lot more daring with fashion - and its totally okay to be! Im as guilty as anyone of getting into a style grind and wearing the same jeans and shirts day in an day out, until my fashion choices are more effective than Ambien at causing serious snoozes.

Where To Eat In Greensboro

Though I live in NYC now, I grew up in a (comparatively) small town in North Carolina. Greensboro, NC is a beautiful, calm place to live with tons of gorgeous green trees, lovely lakes, sprawling suburbs, and...not that much to do, as far as cultural activities go. What we do have is lots of shopping (inside, outside, a mix of the two) and some pretty good food. The produce in Greensboro, NC is much better than in Manhattan, not to mention much cheaper. And while North Carolina might have a lower resta...
