How to Style Warby Parker's Spring 2017 Collection

I'm excited to partner with Warby Parker to show you guys how to style their newly launched Spring 2017 collection of eyeglasses. Warby Parker is one of the best places to buy prescription eyeglasses, because they provide affordable and stylish frames starting at just $95. The best part is you can try before you buy. The way it is works, you pick up to 5 frames, which are shipped to you for free. Once you pick a favorite, you can order them online and then they'll send you a fresh pair. Then after 5 days, you'll use the free return label to send the other 5 frames back.

Warby Parker's Spring 2017 collection features frames that come in a versatile color palette featuring bold neutrals and muted pastels. One of my favorite designs is the Roland, which comes in two tortoises colorways. It's best to wear frames that are the opposite shape of your face, but I can't resist round frames. Plus tortoiseshell blends well with most skin tones.  

Warby Parker also offers nonprescription eyeglasses. I'll admit that I actually don't need glasses, but we should forget the rules about wearing nonprescription eyeglasses since it's 2017. With it being a new year, it's the perfect time to embrace something fresh and change up your look. Don't worry about looking nerdy. In fact, glasses will actually make you look smart and sexy. Here's some inspiration to help you incorporate these frames into you everyday rotation.

How I Cleaned Up My Diet

Eating healthier is one of those things that a lot of us commit to around this year so I wanted to share how I cleaned up my diet to help you guys reach your health and fitness goals.

Before
After


I love food, but we all know that too much of the wrong thing leads to health issues and weight gain. At the same time, it's hard to completely give up junk food (I applaud any of you that have that much willpower). I spend a lot of time with family so I'm always tempted with sugary or fried foods. After reading Eat. Nourish. Glow by Amelia Freer I discovered that the key to a healthier diet is finding a balance between eating good and bad. It's easier to maintain eating healthy when you allow yourself to cheat here and there. In fact, those junk foods aren't as satisfying once you get used to eating clean so there's less of an incentive to cheat after a while.

Eat. Nourish. Glow suggests cutting back on sugar, milk, coffee, gluten, and alcohol. Everything besides alcohol was hard to do, but it got a lot easier once I could see and feel the effects it had on my body. Besides losing a couple pounds, I had more energy and finally stopped having frequent headaches. Limiting sugar and the rest of those things probably sounds terrible, but once you learn what it does to your body, it's way easier to make smarter choices. For example, I learned that the body doesn't distinguish what type of sugar we eat; it's all processed the same. If I'm craving something sweet, I try to eat real sugar instead of a diet version.

The best part of eating cleaner is that you can enjoy food without the hassle of counting calories which makes it easier to maintain a healthier diet. I did Weight Watchers back in college, but tracking was one of the reasons I quit the program. Now that I'm making smarter choices, I can enjoy food without the guilt of going overboard.

Thanks for checking out this post. Have any of you read Eat. Nourish. Glow.? I'd love hear how you guys are working towards a healthier year.

My Goals and Dreams For this Year

So many people have been talking about how terrible 2016 was, but on a personal level it was pretty great. I struggled a lot in college, but I've seen so much growth in myself since graduation especially over this past year. College is such a difficult time, because it's hard to balance your personal and school life. Now that I've graduated, I finally have time to invest in myself. I'm able to keep up with my blog and improve my photography. I have time to go to the gym on a regular basis. Most importantly, I'm able to process the stress that comes with being an adult. Partying used to be my way of dealing with stress, but all that did was push me into a deeper depression. I'm happy to share that I've been sober for over a year now and I couldn't be happier.

Some you may not believe in making New Years resolution, but it makes since to set goals for yourself. We can't take steps towards achieving something without developing some sort of plan. One of the coolest and craziest things that happened this year was being featured on BuzzFeed so I'm looking forward to a similar type of success this year. Here's a list of some more of my goals and dreams for this year.


Collaborate with more brands
Improve photography
Monetize my blog, fashion styling, and photography
Disconnect from the internet for one whole week, maybe longer
Explore new verticals on the blog
Stop blaming others
Improve nutrition and master meal prepping
Go on more dates
Move out of my parents house
Spend time with a different friend at least once a week
Go on a trip alone
Go back to a city I haven't been to since I was kid, probably New York
