My-Style-Pill-Cleveland

I spent the weekend in Cleveland with Casey hanging out with his family and friends, and an adorable bulldog named Poe. We ate at some amazing places, such as Melt, where the grilled cheese is the size of your head, and The Flying Fig, where everything is delicious. And we spent some time on Lake Erie, and visited Strongsville, where he grew up.

Our first stop off for lunch on Friday was at Melt Bar and Grilled. I ordered the Wet Hot Buffalo Chicken and the guys ordered the War Pig. We only made it through half and saved the rest for lunch the next day. Best leftovers ever.

Having hardly spent anytime in the Midwest, this trip to Cleveland was really fun, very laid back and just the break we both needed from the busy city. Hope your weekend was  restful and relaxing! xo

 

Christine-Cameron-My-Style-Pill-Parker-New-York-Beaded-Jumpsuit1

Since we all know I love a good romper/onesie/jumpsuit situation, I decided to break out this beaded jumper for kicks. I’ve worn it with flat sandals before but thought this time around I would take it up a notch and slip on some silver heels to give it a dressier feel.

P.S. Don’t forget today marks the beginning of the NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE! As a Seattleite, this was and still is my favorite time of year, especially since Nordstrom started in Seattle and it was always the favorite place to shop, aka the mothership. I will be working on a roundup of my favorite pieces, but in the meantime, you can shop the sale here! xo

Christine-Cameron-My-Style-Pill-Basta-Surf-Dress5

When I first saw this dress I didn’t think it would work on my shape at all, but after slipping it on, I sort of loved how 60′s and mod it looked and felt. It’s technically a dress (although I opted to put shorts on underneath) but can act as a swimsuit coverup as well, which is what I plan on using it for when I go to Malaga, Spain next month.

PIGEON_4

New York is in the throws of summer, which means every day is a scorcher. It can be hard to stay cool in 90 degree weather, so when shorts and a t-shirt starts feeling kind of boring, I switch it up by wearing colorful, breezy rompers.

Captured a few shots from my Sunday at the park where we celebrated my dear friend Liz’s Birthday. A lot of people at the party are dancers, including her boyfriend, so there was endless entertainment and some pretty impressive mini performances that took place. Hope you all had a great one and if you are a Germany fan, congrats! xo

Green Recovery Smoothie via Green Kitchen Stories

 

Recently I have been on a bit of a health kick. I always try and maintain a mostly healthy lifestyle (except for my occasional weakness for pizza and fries) but I’ve wanted to integrate more smoothies and green juices into my daily routine. I bought the NutriBullet, plan on ordering fruits and veggies more regularly from Fresh Direct and am even embarking on a 12 week workout plan. We will see how it all goes, but as I am getting older, I see no reason not to be in great shape inside and out, you know? And seeing that I have all the resources at my finger tips, there really is no excuse in my mind. I would like to start sharing more health and fitness posts on the blog, so I’m aiming to do so once a week. Would you guys be into that? I would also LOVE to hear what types of smoothies and juices you guys are into – the more creative, the better! xo

 Super C Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie via Green Kitchen Stories

Recipes:

1. Green Recovery Smoothie

Celery and banana are rich in the electrolytes Sodium and Potassium (which you loose when you sweat). Together with the proteins in the hemp powder and nut butter, they are the perfect ingredients in a recovery drink. Keep hydrated and drink this Green Recovery Smoothie after a workout for best result.

1 celery stem with leaves
1 ripe banana, peeled
1 kiwi, peeled
1/2 avocado, stoned
1 lime, juice
1 tbsp hemp protein powder, optional
1 tbsp almond butter or soaked almonds
1 cup coconut water or plant milk of your choice

Mix all ingredients in a blender with a few ice cubes until smooth.

2. Be Better Beetroot & Strawberry Smoothie
Serves 2

Nitrogen rich vegetables like beetroots increases the blood flow to the muscles, which means that you get more energy and better performance when you are working out. Cool right!?

1 handful frozen strawberries
1 raw beetroot, peeled (shredded if you don’t have a high-speed blender)
3 tbsp pomegranate seeds
2 tbsp dried goji berries, optional
2 fresh dates, pitted
2 tbsp chia seeds or flax seeds
1 inch fresh ginger or 1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 pinch ground vanilla or extract
1 cup almond milk or plant milk of your choice

Mix all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Add more liquid if it feels too thick.

3. Super C Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie
Serves 2

Vitamin C is found in citrus fruit, rosehip and mango, and is in fact a strong antioxidant, helping repair and protect the cells in our bodies. Turmeric has highly anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Add 1 tsp to your daily routine.

1 mango, peeled and stoned
1/2 orange, peeled
1 raw carrot (shredded if you don’t have a high–speed blender)
1 handful soaked cashew nuts
1 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp bee pollen, optional 
1 tsp rosehip powder, optional
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup water

Mix all ingredients in blender with a few ice cubes until smooth.

After going down a healthy-smoothie-recipe-pinhole, I came across this amazing site called Green Kitchen Stories and snagged a few of their recipes and photos (all shown above). Although I am not a tried and true vegetarian, yet tend to eat that way generally, if you happen to be and are looking for a plethora of amazing recipes, you should definitely check out this site. It’s pretty impressive and creative, with beautiful photography.
