Smoothie Queen..

Well first I'll start with some cute new clothes that I've bought myself (For my birthday)... This isnt all of them.. but its all good

Halter Dress from Urban Outfitters (sale for 20$!) <3>
Vintage high wasted skirt from American Apparel (vintage collection)
High wasted linen Pants (H+M)
70's Vintage dress... i auctioned for it online.. I <3>

New Tank top the I got for my birthday from the gym... how cool is the back :)

and in other news.....

On April 24.. I turned 23.... Yuck
Now I know this isnt old.. but this is definitely the first year Im not PUMPED about getting another year older... oh well...Not much I can do about it. I did wake up to a beautiful little treat. Mom bought me a rice dream carob covored ice cream (rice dream of course) there was graham cracker in it too...YUMMY.. and 100% vegan (so said the label)

I got lots of fun things for my birthday... A new yoga mat, a new tank top, a new GPS!!! (my dad is amazing.. i need it to get to the theatre this summer)

But the best of all......

A VITA MIX!!!!!!!!!

My amazing mother got it for me and I am SOSOSO excited. I havent used it yet ( I want to wait so me and mom can try it together) But I'm so excited.. Now my smoothies are going to be incredible!!!!!

So i find many bloggers have a "thing". CCV has her chocolate, Ruby Red Vegan has her amazing breakfasts, and Vegan Crunk is the queen of all things southern... I think I may have found my "Thing"...


I make a smoothie EVERY morning
And I usually make a different flavor every morning as well :)

Happy birthday!

All of your clothes are so super cute! You will LOVE your vita mix! We make a huge smoothie for breakfast every single morning. I'm going to have to try some of your combos!

I ♥ puggies said...

Happy Birthday!! I love your new clothes!

I'll be 23 on Monday too! I can't believe how close our birthdays are (and we're the same age!!).

Katrina said...

You had the best birthday EVER! A VITAMIX?! HOLY CRUD! It makes getting older worth it. That's awesome! And, I agree... once you get older than 23 you really start feeling old. (Anyone over 30 who reads this is going to hate us!) Your new clothes are super cute, too. My favorite dress is a vintage dress I won on Ebay! We seriously have too much in common. What is it about summer anyway that just makes you want to shop? I just went out and bought a new sundress, a denim skirt, and 2 pairs of shorts. My husband was super excited about the denim mini-skirt! HA! BTW: have you made Karina's Kitchen's Gluten Free Sunbutter cookies? A-MAZING!

I have all gluten-free, vegan products with interesting ingredients. I couldn't find your email, so please contact me when you can. I'd love to tell you more about it. I think you'd love it.



Katrina said...

Have you heard or the company Awesome Foods? They make the most A-MAZING gluten free, vegan, raw food products. I just discovered them at a random Whole Foods in Maryland. (I have no clue what city. It was a lunch break during a bus drive.) Their website is
Check it out! I have a feeling you would LOVE them!
