I think I can, I think I can…  Memorial Day weekend is almost here!  It’s going to be a quick post today, but I just wanted to check in and say hi.

Eco Tan: the best clean self tanner, ever.

I need to post a full review of this soon, but while you’re at Safe & Chic, do yourself a favor and add a few Eco Tan products to your cart.  BEST. CLEAN. SELF TANNER. EVER.

True Botanicals: a girl's best friend.

I recently turned my friend Chassity of Look Linger Love onto True Botanicals, as her skin is very similar to mine.  She is hooked. See her post here, and take advantage of her 15% off promo!

Spicy Cacao Banana Smoothie

We are heading out to our family beach house on Kiawah Island this weekend with some friends and our children, and I’m so excited to veg out and get some beach time with my people.  I plan on making breakfast smoothies for the whole house each morning, so I thought I’d share one of my favorites with you:


  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 handful kale or other greens
  • 1 scoop vegan protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon raw unrefined coconut oil
  • 1 heaping tablespoon raw cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon shelled hemp hearts
  • 1 teaspoon chlorella powder
  • 1 teaspoon maca powder
  • a few shakes of ground cinnamon
  • a dash of cayenne pepper
  • stevia to taste, if needed

Blend all ingredients until smooth in a Vitamix or powerful blender.  You can totally do without including all the superfoods, but if you’re interested in exploring adding more of them into your daily routine, Thrive Market carries all of my favorites for WAY less than most retail establishments. The $50 annual membership literally pays for itself in the savings of your first purchase.  It’s pretty awesome; I love placing my order each month or so.

Have a great weekend!
