Socks and Boots..O My!

Boots and Socks

Baby, It’s Cold Outside,

Well not really yet, but it will be soon. One fall fashion statement that I love is the boot paired with the socks. And not your typical socks but the long ones that show. I think it add a little bit of something to your look. You can accessorize with more than just your footwear. It is a practical and fashionable statement. I enjoy it because you can transform a summer outfit with shorts into a fall/winter outfit with a pair of stockings, socks, and boots. What’s not to love? Also if you are not blessed with thick calves the socks add some extra traction to keep the boots that you love up. Try them out and let me know what you think!





Getting Paleo with Peruvian Chicken

peruvian chicken


After work yesterday I finished one of my rotations for my residency and wanted to treat myself, a kind of mental pat on the back. I was like, ahh! Paleo! How can I possibly find something to eat outside? Surprisingly, there are various paleo friendly restaurants or if you ask they can “paleofy” your meal. I happened to remember this amazing Peruvian chicken that my mom brought home from work a while back and I was like yum, meat is paleo! Then I got to this amazing place in College Park, MD called Sardi’s Pollo a la Brasa. They serve DELICIOUS Peruvian chicken, slow roasted on a spit right in front of you. The spices on the chicken are out of this world.  Somehow the chicken is nice and moist as well. They also have a nice selection of sides. My favorite paleo selections are the yuca fries and the fried plantain. Oh my goodness, yuca fries are scrumptious little golden treats. They are made from the cassava plant and if you have never tried one, try it! It will change your world. And I think the fried plantain speaks for itself. They are perfectly ripe, soft, sweet, and amazing. Definitely a paleo friendly dinner for me!




First the Maxi Skirt..Now the Maxi Pants. I Love.

Maxi Pants

Hey Fashionistas,

     I am sure many of you are already aware of the maxi pants trend that is currently sweeping the nation. It is absolutely fabulous and practical for the fall weather. I’d say grab your pair now before the snow begins to fall. Like the maxi skirt the maxi pants add length to your frame. They are also tummy forgiving with wider belt styles or vertical stripes. I am personally a fan of boho, loose and free styles. This can be boho to perfection or classy enough for a high power dinner. Paired with a high set of heels, ladies you are run way ready. For street wear pair it with a cross over chain linked purse. For a night out on the town pair it with a clutch. These pants can also be paired with crop tops and cardigans. Embrace this style while it is still on the radar!


Much Love Always,

Living the Paleo Life! Week 1 Update


Hey Loves,

This past week has been pretty good! I have been privileged enough to be in residency with an awesome paleoista. When I go to the hospital cafeteria with her, I’m constantly asking, “Is this Paleo?” To my surprise, a lot of what I have been eating has already been Paleo. The only real thing I’m giving up is my rice. Ahhh! My people eat rice. I was probably conceived and birthed in a bowl of rice. I am currently in search of carb substitutes. Zucchini pasta is delicious and I was turned on to that before I tried the Paleo life. So far, I am enjoying the freedom of my bowels. Seriously though, this lifestyle choice has been great for my finicky bowels. The train always rolls on time now. I also feel that my sensitive skin is benefiting from it as well. But who knows if it is due to the diet or the fact that I am more conscious of what is in the things that I put on and in my body. Alright, gotta get back to work!

Until Next Week Darlings!



Bacon Wrapped Chicken Stuffed with Spinach + Organic Skim Milk Cheese

Hey Guys on this Tasty Tuesday I wanted to share a recipe, partially stolen from an amazing Paleo cookbook that I borrowed from WeArePrimalTwo. It is called Practical Paleo. The original recipe is the Bacon Wrapped Smoky Chicken Thighs. I made it Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breast Stuffed with Spinach and Organic Skim Cheese. My recipe is below:


  • 4 skinless  boneless chicken breast
  • 8 slices of bacon, thick sliced
  • 2 tsp McCormick’s Mesquite Chicken Seasoning
  • 2 tsp of garlic
  • 8 ounces of spinach
  • 4 tablespoons of organic non fat skim cheese
  • 1 egg white
  • salt and pepper for taste

Preparation: Preheat oven to 375. Sprinkle the chicken thighs with 1 tsp of mesquite + garlic seasoning. Mix the spinach, egg white, and cheese with some salt and pepper to taste in a bowl. Slice the chicken breast almost all the way through to make it look like a bun. Place some of the spinach and cheese mix in between the two “buns” and  then wrap each one in 2 strips of bacon. Bake for approximately 40 minutes. Enjoy!

Yield: 4 bacon-wrapped chicken thighs

Sidenote: I paired it with Zucchini Pasta! Yummy!

Happy Eating!
