Back on Track: Getting LOOSE with your plan!

Back on Track Getting LOOSE with your plan!

Sooo, about that gym routine…If you’re like any normal human being, I’m sure you’ve fallen off the wagon before when it comes to getting in your fitness. Maybe its one week that’s super busy, or a week that you’re not feeling so hot that is the catalyst to your die hard gym routine. For me, its often that I have a week that I just can’t seem to find the time to get to the gym and get in the workout that I had planned to be able to do. I think its a major advantage to be able to

Cutting the Clutter: Let it GO!

Cuting the Clutter...let it go!

Happy Friday all! Lately, life has been so busy. We took a trip up to Upstate NY to visit my family and scout out our wedding venue. It was so amazing for all of our family to be able to see the place where we’ll be getting married! Lately, I’ve been trying to declutter our house like crazy. Not sure what it is about winter that makes me want to get rid of a bunch of stuff and declutter, but lately u have been cleaning our closets left and right. It started in our bedroom. I went to pull out

Sip on this & Feel fresh out of the crypt!


Happy Friday!!! Okay, I’m full on back with the whole Halloween theme. (Oo, ps…in case you missed the other Halloween posts, check here for budget friendly decor or here! for a Pumpkin themed breakfast!) I mean, what other reason can you use to add gummy worms to your cocktails? Limited, but then again…you do you. Also, can you believe it’s already mid October? I like basically Thanksgiving…meanwhile, I’m over here considering if I should be putting away my bathing suits….whoops…not summer. In the Halloween spirit, I figured the obvious choice was to make beautiful vamp-y cocktails that won’t make you feel like garbage the

Why I’m obsessed with Coconut oil…and why you will be too!

Obsessed with Coconut Oil  Keep it Real Clean

Seriously. I’m obsessed coconut oil lately. So much so that I left the house the other day and I realized I was COVERED in oil. But in a good way. I’ve always been a big fan of using waterproof mascara for the stay factor. I never have been one for make up touch ups throughout the day so if I can stick on some mascara in the morning and it can stick for the day I’m good to go. The only downside of mascara that won’t budge during the days means that it also can be tough to get off

Chic & Cute: Halloween on a budget!

Cute Chic Halloween Decorations| Keep it Real Clean

Okay, I warned you all. Keep it Real Clean has officially undergone the Halloween/Fall takeover. First it was pumpkins, now its halloween decorations. I am not messing around. Last year, I decorated for Christmas…barely, but I felt like that was enough because we had really just gotten our house together. This year. No excuses. But, then again, I am not a full on bloody guts and gore kind of Halloween decorator. Not only am I not interested in that…um, hello? In my kitchen? Unnecessary, but I also still want to keep up with my regular decor. I like to keep

October is here! Pumpkin Parfait Breakfast

Pumpkin Parfait | Keep it Real Clean

FALL! Yesss. Fall is great. Don’t get me wrong, I love the summer more than anything, but the fall is just wonderful. Warm drinks, cozy sweaters and pretty colors? Can’t. go. wrong. The ONLY bad thing about the fall is that it means winter is lurking just around the corner. Ugh. But, might as well live in the moment and enjoy the wonderfulness of the fall so naturally that means time for pumpkin flavored meals! Ooo, also get ready. This is basically a fall takeover on Keep it Real Clean. I swear over this week it went from humid, warm

Bowl of Benefits…Flawless Acai Bowl.

Acai Breakfast Bowl  Keep it Real Clean

Alright, soooo….its happened. I jumped on the Acai bandwagon, but guess what?  I don’t hate it. I realize basically everyone and their Mother has been instagraming pictures of beautifully organized Acai bowls for months now, but in Philadelphia its not as easy to get your hands on a bowl as it may be in other places…Yes, West Coast..I’m talking to you. But, I totally took it as a sign when I was at Whole Foods and saw the frozen Acai packs were on sale. I mean, come on…I basically would have LOST money if I didn’t buy it. (Logic? ;)) So, I

Clean those brushes…Naturally!

Clean Your Make Up Brushes Naturally  Keep it Real Clean

So, fall. I’m not sure about you all, but there’s something about fall that makes me NEED to clean. Okay, yes yes Spring Cleaning…I know, I know. Everyone is all about that, but there is something about the fall that makes me so happy to be able to spend a Sunday with a crockpot cooking away and me knee deep in a pile of clutter to sort through. This past weekend, I decided to sort through all of my make up and chuck out a bunch of stuff. While I sorted through about 84 lip smackers (yes, I know…whatever, I’m
