productivity tipsIn the age of distraction, it can be so easy to veer off your desk at home and start cleaning, doing chores or in my case playing with my shih-tzus. I do take a break every 30 minutes and walk around my house but get right back to work, this took a few years for me to be able to do because in that break time I always found an email I forgot to answer which led to more things added to my to do list and I would get completely off track so much so I would look at the clock and it would already be 10 PM..

In the last year I have found a few tools and tips that have helped me get way more done in a day compared to the lack of getting anything done like I did before. I want to share with you the techniques and tools I use in hopes they help you get one more thing out of your way and one more part of that dream project checked off.

Best Salon in Las Vegas

I know my blog is all about health and wellness but if you remember from this post where I talk about my Thai life, I am a total glam girl. I love getting my hair blown out, I love LOVE wearing makeup (as natural as possible of course) and I love SHOPPING! In my life I have gone through MANY transformations, changes and even diets, at one point in my life I was a raw vegan but I have NEVER changed my hair color. I have been bleaching my hair since I was 13 years old. Since moving to Vegas, I have been pinning images of girls with multi-dimensional blondes of all shades, fades and lengths for over six months. I never thought I could pull it off, like I said I had been the same shade of blonde for over 14 years!

I finally took a plunge and trusted Cameren Morger at Kaya Salon to do my hair makeover after seeing the beautiful color they did via Instagram (total INSPO @kayabeauty). The color combo I wanted can be done but I have seen some pretty messed up fades in my time (dip dye anyone?)

There are millions of salons here in Vegas, when I first moved here I was shocked at the amount of eyelash extension spots and hair salons which for me meant just about anyone can open a salon..I was scared, I won’t lie to you guys, I have literally been bleach blonde for over 14 years, making a change like this is SCARY! I knew I had to make the change because my hair just won’t grow, I had tried Viviscal, not washing my hair, cutting it every 6 weeks, let’s just say I am sick of clipping hair extensions in everyday. I had to take the plunge.

Best Protein Powder

Ok, I have been SUPER against protein powders for SO long but since upping my game in my business I have found throwing some greens powder and protein powder in water has freed up some of my time. The thing is, I was against protein powders for many years because of the artificial flavorings, unknown ingredients and low regulation on supplements here in the United States. I would never recommend just buying a protein powder that someone tells you to buy, more than half the time these are promoted and that chicka is being paid. I get it, she’s got bills to pay etc but over here I like to keep it real and share with you what I know to be the best protein powders list I can think of. Please comment below if you know of more, I am not a supplement shop owner or someone who is super duper into supplements so I am only sharing those I have tried and recommend to my personal clients.

Best Protein Powders List

Side Note: Did you know one of the easiest ways besides this three, to lose weight is to eat at least 25-30 grams of protein in the morning? Your body automatically signals itself to relax and keep you full longer so if you find yourself ravished post breakfast you may want to consider the amount of protein you are eating versus the amount of carbohydrates.

When it gets hot outside you either choose to workout in the early AM before it gets TOO hot or you head into the gym to work up a sweat. Either way, you want to look fabulous and if you are anything like me I love to put together a chic yet looks like I didn’t try workout outfit. Here are my top picks for the summer season.
The Summer Workout Gear LookBook inspiration came to me when I was looking for new clothes to change up my style. I am really trying to get out of the black section at the Lululemon store, it is difficult but I know I feel so much more energetic in brighter clothing (not that I need more energy haha)!

I am currently trying to brighten up my wardrobe a bit. I am running a survey right now to see what type of content and things I can provide you and someone wrote my outfits were too dark for her taste (if you want to help me make my new program feel free to fill out the survey here). I kind of took offence for a hot minute but then realized I do tend to veer towards the dark side when it comes to shopping for clothes. I guess it’s the little punk rock Courtney in me..I am starting to play with colors a bit more and really enjoying shopping for new workout clothes!

Cute Workout Clothes

SASSY: When I walk into my workout room, I walk in with an emotion of I am going to ruin this workout, sweat and feel amazing! Somehow it helps when your outfit matches that emotion and this wrap around tie top is super sexysass. Teeki Feather Green PANTS | Stella McCartney Similar Lorna Jane one here TOP 

FLIRTY: Sometimes you have a bad day and the only way to fix it is to 1. go workout or 2. get all dolled up, at least in my opinion. Combining the two categorizes this outfit and those pants are just SO cute! Evolve Fitwear Pineapple PANTS | Allegro Black TOP 

BOHO: In Thailand I didn’t have much of a fashion style profile, I literally just wore whatever was comfortable in the humid heat, basically I wore workout clothes. Coming to the states I have been obsessed with the “boho chic” look and tie-dye has been my thing. I found this combo while searching the web and fell in love!

I am trying to venture out into different activewear brands since there are SO many nowadays but somehow I will always be a die hard Lululemon girl.

SO I wanna know…

4 Ways to Upgrade Your Salad

Salad is no longer just tomatoes, cucumbers and lettuce..boring. You can really make a salad a REAL meal, you can throw together a delicious salad in 2.5 seconds that will actually keep you full and have so much flavor you will literally crave one every single day.

4 Ways to Upgrade Your Salad

I know when I go out to eat I always see the tastiest varieties of salads and wonder how I can recreate these delicious combinations at home. The next day I completely forget and that delicious salad combo I would probably eat everyday becomes a thing of the past. Lately, I have been snapping photos of recipes that sound interesting, most of the time the salad itself is healthy it’s the dressing that kills the “health” value.

I have my “go-to” dressing and if you follow me on Snapchat you know my die-hard collection of Bragg’s Dressings and Sauces! I would come to America from Thailand and bring bubble wrap with me to bring its glass bottled magic taste with me back to Asia! Since I know you are chaotically busy, these dressings are DELICIOUS and are made with Apple Cider Vinegar, organic herbs and spices as well as superfoods. You can grab this dressing here.
