Goodbye Juicing! Hello….SOUPING?

SOUPURE_winter

Juicing was MAJOR the past couple of years and for good reasons. It was healthy, quick, and delicious. No to mention, perfectly chill for those hot days.

However, there is a new kid coming to town in the form in souping. Soupure is a new company that provides, soups, broths, and other warm and savory liquids that will be perfect for colder months. However, Soupure products can be sipped warm or cold.

Unfortunately, Soupure is currently only offered in L.A., but it is a start-up. So, I’m sure they are working to spread this genius idea.

Have you tried juicing? Are you interested in ‘souping’?

Settling? What’s that?

The older I’ve gotten, the more I’ve learned about things I like, dislike, and what I can’t tolerate in any shape or form. After you learn those things, you realize when you just won’t settle for certain things.

One of the best decisions I made recently in regards to not settling is my career path.I was at my last job for over 3 years and since it was working for a small business owned by a husband and wife and I practically became their third daughter and knew everything about the business. Eventually, I became too comfortable and secure with my job, but….I got burned out and it began to show in my attitude at work.

I loved the owners too much to want to look for another job. However, I realized that I couldn’t settle for the comfort of one job, when I knew I wanted and needed to expand my experience. So, I decided to not settle and start  my search for a new job and got one that not only paid ALOT better, but also taught me to do other things and expand my knowledge base on other things. Also, I still have a great relationship with my former bosses.

I can definitely say in hindsight that I was fearful of moving on and was putting off the inevitable, which is never good. One thing you don’t want to put off is your taxes. So, you should definitely take advantage of H&R Block at Home where you have the chance the win a $100,000 refund.

Guidance is Golden


I’ve never been a fan of asking for assistance with anything. I was and still am the “independent”one of my parent’s children. So, whenever I want or need something, I’ve always seeked out how to get it myself.
Unfortunately, there have been a few times where I needed someone to help me and I just couldn’t swallow my pride to ask and instead, went without.

However, that all changed when I decided to go ahead and get my health on track. I’ve never been a skinny person. I’m always going to be naturally “chubby” and I’m okay with that. What I’m not okay with is the fat on top of the chubby that’s not trying to go away on it’s own. Oh, how I wish that could happen. Anyway, a few months ago I decided to join a gym. I thought that would be just what I needed and I could do everything myself.

Here’s the thing, gyms have a lot of equipment….A LOT! Aside for the treadmill, elliptical, and exercise bike, everything else just looked like extras from the Transformers movies. After a few weeks of going to the gym sporadically and just hopping on the treadmill for an hour, I knew I needed some help. So, my wallet and I discussed it and decided I should hire a trainer. I have an awesome trainer. Not only did he show me all the equipment and how to use it, but he also gave me the motivation to get up every morning and be deligent about going to gym and sticking to it.

So far, I’ve lost 10 pounds by just going to the gym and my clothes are starting to look baggy, which I’m not really feeling. Still, it was one of the best decisions I’ve made to ask for help and guidance to a path I’ve been trying to get on for years.

So, the moral of this small, but fat tale is that it’s okay to seek guidance when you can’t do it yourself. Hey, we’re not superheroes. Heck, even Superman needed Lois Lane to keep him in the loop on things. This is the time of year when you really need help for your taxes.

Jones New York Empowering Your Confidence campaign

For over 30 years Jones has strived to help women achieve their goals.  This season, Jones New York reveals their fall campaign entitled “Empowering Your Confidence.”  Shot by esteemed photographer, Annie Leibovitz, and styled by Lori Goldstein, the JNY fall campaign highlights accessible luxury for the modern, professional woman.  Jessica Stam, Hilary Rhoda and Du Juan, are just some of the faces that helped to bring these striking shots to life against the iconic backdrop of Grand Central Station.

The “Empowering Your Confidence” campaign is influenced by “A Woman’s Nation” (http://www.awomansnation.com/), a crucial part of the Shriver Report that highlights the growth and influence of women in the home, at work and all around the world.  Jones is celebrating female empowerment, not only through fashion, but by also offering advice, tips and inspirational quotes via “The Little Black Book”, a digital collection of accomplished female professionals such as Bobbi Brown, Ariana Huffington, Ellen Gustafson, and Ivanka Trump sharing their collective wisdoms with women everywhere.

P.S. I want those bags they are carrying!
