Just 59 minutes from the strip, located on Lewis Ranch Road in Moapa, Nevada the Moapa Valley Corn Maze has been a family run ranch since the 1950s.

Arbonne Essentials Protein Shake Mix

Keeping a balanced diet is no easy task and for me it’s the most challenging at work.

Craft services and quick meals spell diet disaster for me.  Most days my only options are a platter of pastries in the morning and a deli platter or pizza for lunch.  We have no choice in what we get to eat on shoots, the production company or client pre-determines the meal and has it delivered- usually from whatever is easiest and most convenient.


I have been struggling to watch what I eat at work and it seriously is a daily STRUGGLE. I try to bring healthy snacks but with my on-the-go moving from location to location carrying a tons of things in extreme temperatures fashion stylist life that isn’t always feasible.

I have found one little lifesaver that is a super easy healthy option for an on-the-go person like me, Arbonne Essentials Protein Shake Mix.

Each packet is conveniently portioned to an individual size serving and contains a Protein Shake Mix Powder with 20 grams of vegan protein, plus more than 20 essential vitamins and minerals!

The protein comes from a good variety of sources, such as pea, cranberry and rice. It’s filled with all sorts of important vitamins, like B-12 and Vitamin D, and is fortified with calcium and contains essential amino acids which help support muscle repair and protein synthesis.  Arbonne Essentials Protein Shake Mix also has a low allergen potential because of what ISN’T in the mix.  No Soy and NO Whey which are common allergens that are present and many other protein shakes.

One of the most amazing things about these shakes is the ingredients list.  It’s short and contains all organic or non-gmo ingredients. For the sweetner they use  stevia leaf, rather than a splenda or aspartame (both of which I am highly allergic to plus they are packed with chemical nasties).

You can mix them with just water if you are prepping it on the fly or at home with a ton of different recipes Arbonne offers. I listed two at the end of this post.

I have tried other mix with water protein drinks before and they are always gritty and clumpy.  Arbonne’s mix shakes up smooth and easily with no clumps.

The shakes are available in two flavors: chocolate and vanilla.

The chocolate flavor has a rich cocoa flavor.  Seriously it is so yummy.

The vanilla flavor is perfectly smooth and great for blending with fruits and peanut or almond butter!

They are super filling, give you a great boost of energy and best of all the ingredients are clean!  Many protein powders have a ton of ingredients and lots of chemicals in them, so it’s amazing to find a more natural protein powder, especially one that is vegan!

Straight out of a Fairy Tale: Glow in the Dark Flower

Glow in the Dark Flower

I discovered something straight out of a Fairy Tale this week that will make your dreams come to life.

Who remembers the enchanted rose from Beauty and the Beast?

Growing up, Walt Disney helped me believe that dreams really do come true and inspired me to believe that the impossible can become possible.

This fairy tale flower captures that message in one enchantingly beautiful glass dome.

This captivating Beauty and the Beast-esc dome rose from Glow in the Dark Flower  lasts for up to a year and has been sprinkled with fairy dust to make it actually Glow in the Dark!

OK maybe not fairy dust- it’s a plant based solution developed by flAVATAR but fairy dust sounds better lol.

How is this magic possible? It’s a two step process.  One for the flower preservation and one for the Glow ion the Dark effect.

The roses are sourced from Ecuador and cut when the rose is in full bloom.  They are then soaked in special oils, including glycerine and other oils, that preserve them. The process is all natural and no harmful chemicals are used.

After a couple of days, the oils replace the sap of the rose leaving it fresh looking and soft to the touch with a natural appearance and radiant colors that can last up to a year!

To make the rose glow it is then then dipped in another 100% plant based solution createad by Flavatar Technology for the treatment of preserved roses which makes them glow in the dark. The technology developed by flAVATAR Technology is in all aspects free from gene manipulations. The substance used to treat the plants are 100% safe as well as for the natural environment, as humans and animals.

They glow for up to 30 minutes (depending on the level of charging), if immediately put in a dark place after charging. Should the glow fade with time, charging is very easy, you only need to place the arrangement to direct sunlight, lamp, or even your cellphone flash light for a couple of minutes and it will glow beautifully again.

Maintaining the roses is simple as they never need water.  Keep them out of direct sunlight, extreme heat and high humidity.  Try to avoid touching them so that the Glow in the Dark substance stays on it!

A perfect gift for the dreamer in your life or to help inspire a little magic in yourself.

The roses are available in both Parisian Style Boxes and European Glass Dome’s. For more information or to order visit

The Freedom of Dryel


The past couple of months have been completely cray cray. Photo shoots in five different states from coast to coast equals piles and piles of laundry for a fashion stylist.

To be honest the piles are totally overwhelming and I’m on a tight turn around before I head off again to Arizona for another shoot.

ALL of my wardrobe stock is dirty.  Seriously EVERYTHING.  So…..dang……dirty.

It’s been a two day Olympic style marathon of laundry duty trying to get everything clean in time but what about the dry clean only’s?

No time to take them to a dry cleaner and get them back before I leave, but I’m not stressing because I have my own personal dry cleaner right at home: Dryel at Home Dry Cleaner.


It is a convenient at-home Dry Cleaning system that safely steams and cleans soils, stains and odors, while removing wrinkles and saving both time and money. It cleans 10 garments for the cost of one dry cleaned garment, and it works great on ALL YOUR CLOTHES everything from sweaters to blouses, blazers, dresses and trousers.

No fading, no shrinking and no stretching!

It’s as easy as Zip It, Steam It, Rock it.

Dryel saves the day every-time by letting me clean clothing on my terms.  No driving, no waiting on pick up times, no working around store hours, just me deciding when I want to launder my clothes in the comfort of my own home!


I can’t tell you how many times Dryel has saved me both with my personal clothing and pieces for photoshoots.

Thanks to Dryel everything is clean, fresh, packed and ready for it’s next adventure.

Dryel is available at most major retailers such as Target, Walmart, Walgreens, CVS and
