RECIPE: BERRY SMOOTHIE BOWL

IMG_4560 copy

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you are well aware that acai bowls are the thing to be eating right now – so fresh, so healthy, so trendy. You will also know that if you are in the habit of eating acai bowls, your bank account has taken the hit. Today, we can put our DIY pants on and make a berry smoothie bowl that is so simple and delicious, you won’t feel the need to run out and buy an acai bowl ever again.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 banana, frozen (peel the banana before freezing)
  • 1 cup frozen berries (we used blueberries here but if you want to stick to the original you can use frozen acai!)

Toppings – you can really use whatever you like – that’s the best part! Here are some suggestions:

  • Banana chips
  • Almonds or other nuts
  • Fresh or frozen berries
  • Unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Natural peanut butter
  • Chia Seeds
  • Flax seed

What you’ll do:

  • Add the frozen banana and berries to a blender. Add about a 1/4 cup of water – start with half the water first and blend, add more if needed. You want the mixture to be very thick – it could take a bit to blend.
  • Once smooth, pour the smoothie mixture into a bowl. Top with your choice of toppings and enjoy!

Three Ways to Bring on Spring

Spring LG

Don’t mind us. We’re just day-dreaming of spring. Let’s get a jump-start, shall we?

Outdoors IN: We are big believers in decorating with plants. Some of our favorites include succulents, Dracaena, Fiddleleaf and Snake Plant (its name is a lot scarier than it really is).

White Is Nice: Keep soft whites as your backdrop, or incorporate white accent pieces. It helps to make a space feel crisp and fresh.

That’s a Sweet Scent: Sure pumpkin pies and wood-burning fires are some of our favorite smells of autumn, but for spring we love the clean, invigorating scent of citrus.

What is your desk personality?

“I definitely lean more toward organized chaos. My desk tends to get full with new beauty products every day, so it’s a constant battle to keep it all under control. I also like having cool things for people to look at or play with when they come meet with me.”

“Co-workers often ask me to braid their hair before they leave for the night, and I love it!”

What’s your favorite thing about your new office look?

I love the ampersand print! Oh and the Kate Spade stapler is amazing. It’s just a little bit ridiculous (no one really needs a rose gold stapler), but mostly it is just a really pretty way to decorate your desk with something gorgeous that also serves as a functional item for office work.”

Winter Flower Arrangement

For some who live on the East Coast, we are certainly experiencing the winter blues. Luckily, I know just how to solve that problem: flowers. And lots of them!

centerpiece 4 centerpiece 7 centerpiece 8

Flower Recipe: seeded eucalyptus, magenta peonies, white garden roses, white tulips, magenta spray roses, a few other berry or seeded plants to bring in some greenery.

We always tape off the vase in sections, like this! Then we start by adding in our greenery first. Next, we layer in our feature flowers (peonies and roses!) and finally, fill in with the smaller blooms. I think we will be able to get past these winter blues and be extra-inspired this week looking at this pretty bouquet!
