Pursuit of Trying New Things

IMG_2914I was so thrilled the day I got an email saying Rocksbox wanted me on their team of what they called “It Girls.” At the time, I had heard of Rocksbox, but I didn’t know quite what it was all about. What a great concept!

As I dug further in, I found out that Rocksbox is a company that will send you an adorable box of personalized designer jewelry in the mail. You can wear the jewelry as much (or as little) as you want, and then you can send it back in the very box it was sent in. After that, you will be sent a new box of fresh picks of jewelry. So essentially you are wearing high quality, designer jewelry without commitment or the high price tag.

If you fall in love with a piece, and don’t want to send it back, you can buy it at a discounted price. (You also get $10 of Shine Spend, taking another $10 off your purchase.) Pretty good deal huh? You know I love the deals.

So far, I have been loving it.

I might not ever send this Kendra Scott necklace back, I have been wearing it with everything. Literally.

I think my favorite part about Rocksbox is how personalized it is. You are assigned a personal stylist  that hand picks your collection for each box. You can also put special items in their inventory onto your “wishlist” so you can receive them in your packages too.

There is lots of room for feedback so that your next box is even better than the last.

IMG_2925Oh yeah, and its as easy as putting a comment on Instagram to add things to your wishlist.

IMG_2916I am so super excited that I am involved with this company.

PS- This is NOT a sponsored post. This company is actually really cool, and  I love the concept. I hope you all do too!

Pursuit of Easy Healthy Eating

This is the greatest and easiest thing to make ever.

Jason and I are all about healthy eating, but also about good eating. We often find ourselves craving Mexican style food, which can be EXTREMELY unhealthy.. (sour cream, chips, salty salsa, cheese, ect.)

We have found a healthy alternative to satisfy our cravings. It is our easy go-to recipe, and I’ve decided to share it.

IMG_2841These are all of the things you will need. (Amounts can vary depending on your taste.)

Ingredients: Fresh Salsa, Bell Peppers, Lettuce, Shredded Cheese, Garlic, Tomatoes, Lime, Avocados, Onions, Tortilla Chips, Black Beans, Brown Rice, Tofu (If you’d like), Spices. 

For the tortilla chips, try to find chips with low sodium! Salt is no bueno. These chips are from Trader Joe’s, and they have flax seed and veggies hidden inside.

IMG_2851We cooked the tofu in these spices for some flavor, but if tofu is not your thing, mix these spices in with the black beans and rice.

Spices: Ground Black Pepper, Cumin, Paprika, Red Pepper (Cayenne), Chilli Pepper, Oregano, and a pinch of Himalayan Salt.

If you don’t want to be as crafty with the spices, Trader Joes’ has a great taco seasoning with similar ingredients.

IMG_2859First we drained the tofu, and rubbed it with the spices. We plopped it in a non-stick pan and cooked it along with the bell peppers.

IMG_2860Then we diced it up and tossed the tofu in a bowl.

We then chopped up the lettuce, tomatoes, onions, garlic, and avocados, and put them in the bowl too. We topped it off with the shredded cheese (Hey, everything in moderation), rice, and black beans.

IMG_2868We stirred it up, and crushed some tortilla chips into the bowl for a little crunch. To top it off, we added some fresh salsa, and squeezed some lime juice. It’s the perfectly balanced dinner.

IMG_2865I was even able to take leftovers and pack myself some lunches. The trick to mason jar lunches is to pack all of the wet stuff on the bottom so that the lettuce doesn’t get soggy. I made the dish a little lighter for lunch. Salsa and black beans at the bottom, avocados next, cheese, and then lettuce. Easy.

I hope you enjoy this stuff as much as we do!
