I have always been an athletic person.  Whether it was playing volleyball, taking a spinning class, or doing CrossFit, I have always tried to mantain a healthy lifestyle.  However, when it came to my eating habits, I was never one to abide by “the rules”.  Now that i’m close to hitting the big 2-5 (moment of silence)… I have begun eating and drinking healthier.  One of the newest drinks I can’t get enough of is the Lifeway Kefir Cultured Milk Smoothies.  After my daily workouts, this has become my go-to nutritional snack.  Not only does it help me cool-off, but it helps me feel replenished after a hard WOD.

Now, we all know that healthier food choices may not always mean tastier food choices… That is definitely not the case when it comes to Lifeway Kefir Cultured Milk Smoothies.  These tasty concoctions are the champaign of dairy!  Lifeway Kefir contains 12 live and active probiotic cultures that support the immune system and balance digestive health.  Are you trying to eat gluten-free foods? Good news! Not only are the smoothies gluten-free, they do not contain any lactose or artificial sweeteners.  Lifeway also only uses milk that comes from happy cows that are not treated with any pesticides, and are grass fed and GMO free! :)

The best part about these smoothies are that they come in a variety of flavors like blueberry, peach and blueberry so you can try a different flavor for almost every day of the week!  The Lifeway Kefir Cultured Milk Smoothies are also conveniently available at my local Winn Dixie store.  Not only is my shopping experience always great at Winn Dixie, the sweet incentive of a smooth, tart and refreshing drink at the end of the day is enought to satisfy anyone’s tastebuds.

If you’re trying to make the transition to a healthier lifestyle and are looking for low-fat alternatives,
Lifeway Kefir Cultured Milk Smoothies are definitely the way to go!

Feeling Blue

Turquoise being my favorite color, i’m never opposed to wearing a similar shade of blue.
That being said, I’m definitely not one to be overly-coordinated when it comes to patterns.
In this instance I opted for contrasting prints of blue for a fun twist.

Would you rock this trend?

Americana

With all of the World Cup festivities, I have been rockin’ Red, White and Blue like it’s going out of style. 
This Cynthia Rowley maxi-dress is no exception to the dress code. 
Not only is it a more stylish alternative to all of the Americana gear;
but the dress is extremely comfortable and perfect for the upcoming 4th of July weekend.

Until then… Go USA!preview1

Jamaica, Jamaica!

Do you ever look at a picture, and think of a specific destination?
After editing the pictures for today’s post, I could not get Damian Marley’s “Jamrock” out of my head.
Granted, I haven’t been lucky enough to go to Jamaica, but if I had the opportunity to visit,
this is exactly what I would wear.

I love how the small embroidered details on both the sleeves of this Johnny Was blouse
and the trim in the shorts tie the colors back to this vibrant headband by ZARA.

Jamaica, Jamaica!
–Good luck trying to get this song out of your head!–

Hello, Fran. Meet Frank.

20140607-230134-82894068.jpg

As my favorite season rapidly approaches,
I thought I’d take the time out to chronicle a few things that I can’t currently live without.

If you’re as addicted to instagram as I am (@mystylesnapshot),
stumbling upon new products can be overwhelming
as there is a new market tailored to those of us who are
instagram-obsessed.

Last month, I met a witty man by the name of Frank,
who loves all my curves and all of my edges.
And yes, he also loves my perfect imperfections.

Frank is no ordinary man.
He is a coffee scrub packed with 200g of sweet almond,
orange & lots of other good stuff.

What does he do?
Frank takes care of my cellulite, stretch marks, psoriasis,
varicose veins, eczema and acne with 
roasted and ground robusta coffee beans.

Best of all? He does it all without complaining.

I know. He’s a keeper.

The other product that had me at ‘Hello Hair!’ is an Aussie concoction in a pouch.
If you’re a sucker for packaging like I am, then you will be instantly sold.

In addition to it’s portability, this Australian Hydrating Treatment
has the perfect consistency packed with Coconut, Argan and Almond Oils
that will leave your hair feeling like you just stepped out of the glamorous land of Oz.

Have you tried any of these gems?
Let me know of other products I should try!

Laced by Lola: Resort & Swim Fashion Show

This past memorial day weekend, I headed home to Puerto Rico to spend
some much needed quality time with my sister, Joanne.
Less than a year ago, we began brainstorming ways
to begin a business together, and Laced by Lola was born.

Laced by Lola combines our love for fashion and the tropics
in the form of curated swimwear pieces for the everyday gal.

With my sister’s vision and drive, Laced by Lola
has become extremely successful in a very short amount of time.

What better way to celebrate the launch of our success
than with an exclusive fashion show in the perfect latitude, Puerto Rico.
