This week I am staying at a friend’s house. Her husband is out of town and its just us girls-Its girls week in. We have been talking till late in the night, going for long walks,bonding over nail polish and eating super clean. I am sad that its Wednesday already, when you are enjoying the company you are in, time flues.
During summer, juices and smoothies are a great way to keep yourself hydrated and cool. They are perfect for on-the-go, especially during hurried weekday mornings. This recipe is a perfect for a hot summer day as it combines cooling cucumbers with tart pineapple and chilled coconut water. The spinach and ginger help up the nutrient count.
Pineapple Cucumber Smoothie Recipe
- 2 peeled cucumbers
- 2 cups pineapple
- 1 cup spinach
- 1 inch ginger
- 330 ml coconut water (I just use one small to-go carton of vitacost coconut water)
- The recipe directions cant be simpler. Add everything to a blender and blend away. Pour in a tall glass and top with ice cubes.

The biannual Net-A-Porter sale has been going strong for the past few weeks. The first cuts have been made and quite a few items are now 50-60% discounted. While a lot of the common sizes have sold out, things do keep popping back up. I need a new case for my ipad and this Alexander McQueen one has caught my eye. Since I carry my ipad with me to work, I am hesitating about buying it-the skull embellishment doesn’t exactly scream professional. What do you think is the skull clasp closure tiny enough to pass unnoticed?
Hope you are having a great week as well!
