Else Jeans

Why are a good pair of jeans so hard to find?!?! And on top of the nightmare that is jean shopping, it doesn't help that I am the pickiest person ever when it comes to jeans. It is just so hard to find a pair that are the right length/wash, hug your curves in the right places, are stretchy but not too stretchy, make your butt look good, and not to mention are an affordable price. I went shopping about a month ago with my mom for some jeans and I stumbled upon a brand I had never heard of at Macy's. The brand is called else. I did a little Google search on them and found this bloggers review on the brand. Turns out else is a fairly new line by the premium denim brand, Joe's Jeans, that is sold exclusively at Macy's.

Else Jeans

I bought two pairs, pictured above, on sale for $35.99 each. Macy's is always having sales (btw all else jeans are on sale right now!!) so be a smart shopper and be sure to get a good deal on them!!:) 

Do you have a jean brand that you love?!

Smoothie Recipe

I've been under the weather the last couple of days so this morning, I decided to start my day with a healthy and nutritious smoothie. They're such an easy way to get your fruits and veggies in!

Smoothie tips-

*Using frozen bananas usually eliminates the need for ice. It also adds a nice creamy texture. I personally LOVE bananas so I almost always throw one into my smoothies.

*Kale or spinach? I've found that I prefer kale. It gives a smoothie a thicker consistency than spinach does. I buy it frozen from Trader Joe's (again it helps to eliminate the need for ice).

Smoothie recipe:
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 cup frozen kale
- 1/3 cup mixed berries
- 1/3 cup pineapple
- 1 tbsp flax seed (Add on top after serving. It's adds the perfect crunch!)

Do you have any smoothie recipes? I'd love to hear them!
