Ok so I totally left my camera at home this weekend because I wanted to kick back with my friends!

But here’s a peak into my phone’s pics…hope you enjoy!

We drove up with my girlfriend, Jacqueline which was an interesting/hilarious car ride ( to say the least ). It also involved a lot of Kombucha, made-up/weird-ass games, & good music.

And then we enjoyed the sunshine, our hotel’s lemonade/vodka stand ( kinda genius ), & the overall vibe of Palm Springs.

The colors in Palm Springs are so dynamic. I know that sounds weird but everything is so bright & vintage looking. So much fun! I literally couldn’t get enough of the colors so it’s no surprise my phone’s pictures were full of color.

On a more serious note, my friend, Annie wrote a blog post that REALLY resonated today. You guys have to check it out— it’s such a fabulous reminder. Also, after hearing the very sad news about actor/activist Robin Williams, her post could not have come at a better time. I hope you all like the post as much as I did. It was refreshing to start the week with her message. Basically she kind of says everyone has their shit & just because someone’s life looks perfect on the Internet, doesn’t mean they don’t have issues.

Ok, on that note, I hope you all had a fabulous, amazing Monday!!

Need A Quick Tea On-the-Go? I Gotcha Covered.

The Skinny Confidential shares Suja's tea launch.

The Skinny Confidential shares Suja's tea launch.

Let me set the scene: it’s a typical Monday morning & I’m ready to kick my ass into gear. I wake up, shower, oil pull ( sometimes ), have a little espresso shot, drink a green smoothie, return some e-mails…you know, the usual. And before beginning the work day, I’m usually dying for a Starbucks green iced tea. So I’ll go to Starbucks grab an iced green tea, no water, no sweetener, maybe add a splash of passion fruit tea, if I’m feeling crazy.

BUT {!!!} no more Starbucks for me.

Why?

Because Suja just came out with the most amazing selection of tea ( perf for a girl on the go ). Some of their new flavors include: Honeybush Peach, Unsweetened Biodynamic Black, Jasmine Pomegranate, & Chunmee Tropical. & let’s face it: I’m kinda indecisive in general ( GEMINIS!!! ) so when it comes to tea, I never can pick just one. Naturally, having a couple options to stock my fridge with is sort of like, the most amazing thing ever.

As you guys know I’ve been always been a die hard Suja fan. I’m always running around like a psycho doing too many things at once so typically I prefer anything easy/accessible/quick. Don’t get me wrong, I love my juicer more than life itself but throwing a pre-made green juice in my oversized handbag, makes life 10 x easier.

Anyway Suja’s teas are the same concept: they’re quick & perfect for busy people. One less trip to Starbucks, right?!! Plus their non-GMO, organic ingredients are the freshest, purest, & cleanest on the market so I’m not constantly questioning WTF’s in my drink. Ain’t nobody got time for that.

My favorite flava flav is the Biodynamic Black. I’m so obsessed with black tea & this one over ice with a little drop of honey does not disappoint.

Oh, & if you’re looking to de-bloat before your bikini debut ( hello summer! ) then make this lil recipe, & instead of using green tea, use Suja’s black tea. Sooooo good it hurts.

What’s your favorite tea? Spill. x l

{{ P.S. check out the Suja sponsored party below ( Suja cocktails…yes, cocktails will be flowing! ); it’s an opening day after party, for all you Del Mar racetrack fans, at Rancho Valencia in SD…so fun! x. }}
