Hiiiii guys!!

Me-oh-my my immune system is shutting down on me : (. On Thursday ( earlllllly AM ) I flew to New York to work on a collaboration with Skinnygirl. I’ll do a full recap post on this because the experience was really fun & there’s tons to share. On Saturday AM ( again, earlllly AM ) I flew back to SD to go to a friend’s wedding. On Sunday we packed again & drove up to LA because today we had to get THREE INJECTIONS ( I HATE SHOTS MORE THAN OLD ARUGULA— but really, I was crying like a 4 year old, had to lay down ( I swear I really do have Vasovagal ), & drink a coconut water ( LITERALLY almost fainted ) ).

So why shots?

Because tomorrow we fly overseas for three weeks!!

Yes. Three weeks.

I’m freaking.

We’re going to Asia ( Hong Kong, Phuket, & Beijing, specifically ) for a little work & more play. I’m even thinking about disconnecting, just a little. I’m going to try to post the same amount on the blog BUT I haven’t taken one FULL day off work in the last four years. Literally. Not. One. Off. ( << Insert that crying Emoji here that throws it’s head back ). So while I’m there I plan on trying to take one or two or maybe if I’m lucky, even three days off? We’ll see. Wish me luck.

On my un-days off, I’ll be blogging & Instagraming the whole trip. I’m going to try to Snapchat ( un: laurynevarts ) a lot too if you want major realness.

Ok SO. Asia. I’ve never been to Asia. Have you? If so, TELL ME EVERYTHING. LIKE, EVERY SINGLE SPECK OF DETAIL.

In other news: my immune system is kinda F-ed up so I just downed a bunch of garlic/ginger shots, drank 2 green juices, & drank a bowl of bone broth. Fun times! I’ll be the girl wearing a mask on the plane.

Talk soon!

一会儿见, Lauryn x

P.S. I love seeing your guys’ Snapchats. Some of you have been private messaging me the funniest shit ever. You guys are witty. LOVE it.

TSC Lookbook/Gift Guide: Look 2 ( Plus LAST Day To Get Your Gifts On Time )

Can you tell my nipples are totally hard here?

Well, if you can’t, they were.

It was kind of F-ing freezing.

Thank God for Nippies…I mean without them this shoot in New York would have been a full-fledged disaster.

Getting off topic ( weird )…today I’m sharing another peek inside TSC winter lookbook & gift guide.

Main reason: it’s THE LAST DAY TO SHIP BEFORE CHRISTMAS. SHOP YOUR HEART OUT UNTIL MIDNIGHT, GUYS!

SOOOO…any other procrastinators out there? I’m Ms.Procrastinator x 54353408 so naturally I spent the whole day browsing my favorite online shopping buying gifts.

Side: if you’re looking for a cute, girly last minute gift, check out The Skinny Confidential Book! It’s a fun, little coffee table book.

Anddddd I kind of live for this jumpsuit. It’s by Sandro but I found one on Forever 21 that looks EXACTLY like it. But it’s $24 bucks.

Ugh.

Worst thing ever: when you buy something over $100 & then Forever casually puts it up on their site & it looks EXACTLY like the item you guys purchased ( does this happen to anyone else?!…can’t deal ).

Ok so, full details on this outfit are avail in TSC gift guide.

Anyway it’s getting reallllll festive over here. I mean as much as humanly possible because let’s not forget I just moved (!!!) so the definition of ‘holiday stress’ has taken on a whole different meaning for us this year.

Happy holidays! I hope your week is full of gingerbread men, metallic gift wrap, pink champagne, & The Grinch ( favorite movie! Plus it’s really fun to call Michael a Grinch when he’s grumpy ).

Talk soon, Lauryn xx

Mini DeLites…Coming At Cha From New York City

The Skinny Confidential talks New York City.

HIIIII FROM NEW YORK!

What’s up?!

Nothing much here, just eating wayyyy too much, trying to walk off the calories, working, enjoying a few cantaloupe mimosas ( yes. REAL LIFE. ), AND FREEZING.

But you know what’s fun? Moving…& then having to leave while you’re in the middle of moving. I’m not complaining but it’s sort of stressing me out that I’m away from home when our house is in boxes.

In other news: why does New York City have the best food ever? I’m not too attached to specific foods ( well, besides lemon-everything, warm sourdough bread, & the occasional bowl of Flaming Hot Cheetos ) so it’s surprising how much I love the food.

If you follow TSC on Instagram you know I died for Jack’s wife Freda. We’re also loving Perla ( THE PASTA IS RIDIC ) & lately I’ve become reallll in to cappuccinos with hemp milk. Don’t judge until you try them. We found a charming coffee shop in Ralph Lauren by our hotel so each morning Michael & I get up and start our day with a hemp cappuccino ( so Euro, right? ). Although this isn’t entirely true because Michael makes fun of me for getting hemp & opts for the pasteurized milk. Hey, I pick my battles. Getting him off McDonald’s Egg McMuffins was 384728 battle. Milk will be number 384729.

{ Michael bought me this early Christmas gift…isn’t this cute?! }

When I come back home, I’ll be going real light on the carbs & stepping up my barre game…that’s for damn sure. In the meantime, you can catch me in SoHo in a beanie, gloves, boots, & basically a whole body suit walking off the pasta.

Little update: I’ve been working on the health/fitness/beauty budgeting series so that’s coming to a blog near you in the near future. Also, my stepmom of Burlap & Crystal just launched the cutest baby line, so if you’re looking for a holiday gift for a baby then check this cuteness out!

Until next time, Lauryn xx

Mini DeLites: Around The Home

You know when you’re driving & you totally unbutton your pants to let it all ‘hang’ out while simultaneously looking out the window to ensure no one’s watching?

( If you don’t know what I’m talking about, lucky you!! ).

Whelppppp…10:04 am, Friday morning: shit got real.

I was sitting in the car & reached for my J Brand button. I nonchalantly unbuttoned them while sneakily glancing at surrounding cars through my peripherals. 

AKA I had a ‘my-pants-are-kinda-tight-FML-moment.’

OUCH.

I mean, it was bound to happen after traveling for work/play to Cabo/NYC/LA, we definitely ate/drank more than usual.

I know my body very well & I try to constantly keep in tune with it ( mind/body connection is everything ).

Because if I don’t take care of it, no one will.

So basically I sorta know when it’s time to kick my ass in to high gear.

& Saturday was the big day!

It was time to get disciplined/motivated on all things healthy.

So we decided to stay home ( hence the peak inside my home post ) & stay focused.

Whenever we’re home for the weekend, I like to read a good book, watch a TV series with back to back episodes, SWEAT, & eat super clean.

This weekend looked a lil like this:

Book: Brain on Fire

Apple TV: Game of Thrones ( GASPPPP. OMG, I know, I know— so sorry to all GOT fans!! I’ve never seen the series so we started from the beginning. Naturally, I’m already obsessed & on to season 2 ).

Sweat sesh: TSC workout plan…all at home. It’s super accessible especially for a homebody weekend. Can’t wait to share!

Eats: oatmeal, eggs, pesto spaghetti squash ( shocker! ), juice, smoothies, raw almond butter w/ apples, salads, & lots of WATER.

Also, true story: on Saturday I went to Whole Foods, grabbed an organic watermelon, walked up to the Juice Bar, & asked them to juice the.entire.thing. I carried my three gallons of watermelon juice home feeling like a superstar & drank it throughout the weekend. ( Yes, you read that all correctly ).

Anyway!! I’m continuing the above into this whole month…or at least until I don’t have the urge to unbutton my jeans at stoplights.

Happy Monday, xx lde

Mini DeLites: New York, New York ( Part II )

The Skinny Confidential talks diet and fitness.{ Michael & me at Book of Mormon on Broadway (( soooo damn funny! // dress here )) }

Hi guys!

I’mmmmm baccccccckkkkkkk.

NYC was a whirlwind. Man oh man, that city has energy!!!

It’s funny because the whole time I was there, I got so much work done because it’s a lot easier to focus without the home’s day-to-day distractions. My inbox was at zero for five minutes in NYC & I nearly died!!

Fun times, fun times.

I’m super excited because the whole time I was there I completed my TSC workouts from my room at the amazing Andaz Hotel & they burn soooo good.

I told you guys here that I’m launching an online fitness/clean eats subscription so I’ve been doing TSC workouts during travel to make sure they’re accessible anywhere. I can’t wait to share them : )!

{ Some New York Juice Press juices in Central Park }

I won’t talk too much about my NY trip because I’m going to do a ‘NYC City Guide’ in September & I don’t want to spoil all the fun.

BUT. I will def say that Juice Press is a must-try if you’re in New York…I went CRAZY & tried everything. My personal favorite: ‘Horny Gorilla’ juice ( der! ). Michael & I were cracking up…& then I forced him to drink the whole thing so I could get a good laugh ( I’m evil!! ). LOL. The juice contains ginkgo brain formula, vegan dha omega oil, aloe, coconut oil, filtered water…& maybe a lil Viagra ( kidding, kidding ).

Anyway, I hope you’re having a great start of the week! I’m smothering Pixy in kisses because I missed her soooo damn much.
