HOW TO
Minute Smoothie with Oasis Nutrisource

4/17/15



I won't lie to you. A good smoothie is one on of the few keys to my heart. I mean, if I had it my way, I'd drink a smoothie every morning (but washing berries when you're half-asleep and 15 minutes late for wherever you're supposed to be can be a tad bit inconvenient). As soon as I discovered the generic grocery store frozen berry melange (apparently I'm never in the frozen goods section) and Oasis Nutrisource juices, however, the morning smoothie #goals became much, much more realistic.

So, when Oasis Nutrisource asked me to get creative and have some fun with their tasty cranberry and pomegranate 40 calorie and 100% juice cocktails, I figured I'd make myself (and everyone else in my household) a bomb smoothie that could have cost me $8.00 a cup and a 7:32 minute wait in line, but didn't. You're welcome, family.

YOU NEED...

1 1/2 cups frozen or fresh berries

3/4 cups Oasis Nutrisource 40 calories cranberry juice cocktail (or any of the Oasis Nutrisource fruit cocktails, really)

1 tablespoon of honey (or to your tasting)

1/2 of a banana

1/2 cup honey-flavoured green yogurt


WHAT TO DO NEXT?

Mash everything into a blender and blend until smooth.

Pour your very tasty smoothie into cups and share with friends (because sharing is caring).

Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

So, if you're ever a little short on time in the morning and need to skip breakfast, or just want a smoothie (which I always do), I dare say you should give one of these smoothies a go. Who needs to eat fruit anyway when you can drink it (how lazy am I?)?

And before I forget, Oasis Nutrisource is giving away ten shopping sprees of $1,000 each (no purchase necessary). All you have to do is enter some information here!

There really isn't anything like driving with the windows open and listening to some darn good music that sometimes makes you want to dance and have older Japanese men laugh at you from the car behind you (true story). Take a listen, and let me know what you've songs you've been diggin' to in the comments!

Today was the first jacket-less day of 2015 in Edmonton, which, in my books, is a pretty great day. Throw in the perfect summer uniform including my favourite tee from New Classics, some tasty Filipino food, and an evening on a patio with friends planning out summer trips and shenanigans, and I really couldn't ask for anything more.

PS: We're doing some spring cleaning over at New Classics Studios. You can now shop all sale at 15% off using the code SALE15 at checkout! Shop sale here.

Had a date with my tripod a few days ago when Samuji SS15 arrived at New Classics. Sorry Eric. View more for the rest of the photos and a quick life update where I talk about nothing really relevant to fashion.

Life has been a bit hectic as of late. My room is a mess, I'm seeing signs of incoming acne (which, after graduating, I thought I'd never see too much of), and my sleep schedule has kind of gone off whack. It can be exhausting being an "entrepreneur" (which, to me, almost sounds too grown-up for a 23-year-old anime-obsessed--jk?!?!--girl like me). And there are often so many things that I want to do but not enough hours in a day (or cloning machines available, as was promised by the year 2000). So, I guess by writing all this, all I'm trying to do is breathe. And now I can remember why I really started a blog.

PS: On a completely different note, I'm currently debating bangs, or, rather, curtains for my forehead. Let me know your thoughts in the comments section!

There is no such thing as "too much oversized."



If you told me I had to pick between baggy trousers versus skinny jeans to wear for the rest of my life, I wouldn't have to think twice about my answer. I mean, oversized trousers are essentially glamourized sweatpants at this point. So what's not to love? (Nothing, that's what).

Also, if you hadn't noticed, the Ordinary People blog got a makeover! Should you have a few seconds to spare, I'd love to hear your thoughts and/or suggestions below in the comments. Much love! (Eep, who am I?!)
