A comfortable weekend dress is a must in any girl's closet, as it is translucent in its wear and functionality.  With Father's Day and graduation season right around the corner, this red shift dress gives enough flexibility to do a little last-minute shopping or host a celebratory brunch.  It can also transform from a daytime look with a denim jacket and sandals to an evening look sans jacket.  Throw on a pair of nude pumps along with a clutch and glamorous accessories for a date night.

What I love so much about this dress is the embroidered detailing on the front portion paired with a scalloped hem at the bottom.  It adds just the right touch for a feminine piece.  If a shift dress doesn't seem to go well with your body type, you can also cinch it at the waist with a skinny belt to accentuate the waist line.

Lose Weight for the Summer with Style By Lynsee & DeliverLean


Summertime usually means one of two things -  it's time to slim down to fit in that tiny bikini (or man-kini) or hibernate from all pools and beaches.  If you're anything like me, this doesn't quite hit you until May rolls around the corner and then it slaps you in the face that the time has come to shed those last 5 - 10 pounds.  Upon strategizing how to lose the weight, I was introduced to DeliverLean.  DeliverLean is a premier gourmet meal delivery company in South Florida that offers clean and fresh meals delivered to your doorstep.

As a pescatarian who tends to stray away from gluten and occasionally enjoys vegan dishes, I found it extremely helpful that the healthy food delivery service offers custom meal plans to fit my diet.  I usually cook my meals at home to save my body from any added preservatives; however, DeliverLean provides preservative-free meals prepared by gourmet chefs.  Let's face it, I'm a health freak and if you follow my Instagram then you probably already knew this by now.



When I received my first delivery on Monday, it felt like Christmas.  I stumbled out of bed and opened the front door to find a cooler filled with prepared meals for the next two days, and it was all completely healthy.  DeliverLean provides drop-offs every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The meals are 250 - 400 calories each, containing lean proteins, low-glycemic carbohydrates, high-fiber organic fruits and vegetables and healthy fats.   DeliverLean also brews up raw, cold-pressed OnJuice juices which may be added to a meal plan as well.  Aside from my meal plan, I also track daily consumption on an app called MyFitnessPal which allows you to record everything consumed with nutritional information included.



Let's get to the good stuff,  my meal plan...which has been incredibly delicious.

A typical two-day delivery under my meal plan includes:

Breakfast
Gluten-Free Caramel Apple French Toast with Coconut Yogurt
Southwestern Tofu Scramble with Peppers, Onions and Sweet Potato Latke

Gluten-Free Caramel Apple French Toast with Coconut Yogurt
Lunch
Brussel Sprouts & Kale Salad with Toasted Sunflower Seeds and Coconut Dressing
Wild Mushroom and Caramelized Shallots Quesadilla with Vegan Cheese and Tomato Bruschetta

Wild Mushroom and Caramelized Shallots Quesadilla with Vegan Cheese and Tomato Bruschetta
Dinner
Vegan Panang Curry Tofu with Winter Veggies and Brown Rice
Pescatarian Balsamic Snapper with Wild Rice Pilaf, Broccoli and Onions

Pescatarian Balsamic Snapper with Wild Rice Pilaf, Broccoli and Onions
Dessert 
Desserts may be added to a meal plan, and range from 90 to 300 calories per dish.  Let's just say I almost died after trying the Gluten-Free Chocolate Molten Cake.
Raw Vegan Chocolate Mint Tart
Low-Fat Strawberry Cheesecake


Prior to beginning my summer meal plan, I measured and weighed myself so I'll be sharing results on my social networks.  For those who are looking to join the slim down for bikini season challenge with me, sign up for one month and receive two free days here!

One of the world's largest trendy and affordable retailers, Hennes & Mauritz (H&M), will be opening  its doors for the anticipated Miami International Mall storefront on May 29th at 12PM noon!  Boasting over 22,000 square feet, the newest H&M addition will offer fashion-forward pieces for women, men, young women, young men, with separate areas for accessories, lingerie and sports apparel.  For all of the other mamas out there who absolutely love their children's clothes, their newest location has a sweet spot for you too.  This storefront will carry their fabulous children's collection in all sizes - newborn to fourteen years.  My toddler's closet is pretty much filled with H&M pieces, so this particular aspect of the Miami International store makes me feel all tingly inside.

As part of their global garment recycling program, customers can donate old or unwanted items of clothing from any brand while visiting the store.  In return, H&M will give customers a voucher discount of 15% off the entire purchase for each bag of donated clothing.  So, be prepared to bring those pieces that are sitting in the back of your closet for their launch and you'll also have a chance to win H&M gift cards ($50 - $100 value) in addition to receiving a 15% off voucher.  This sounds too good to be true, doesn't it?  Well it's not.  I wouldn't lie to you.

It doesn't stop there...

On opening day, H&M at Miami International Mall will also give its first 100 customers an H&M t-shirt and an Access to Fashion Pass, valued from $10 to $300!  


H & M, Hennes & Mauritz AB (H&M) at Miami International Mall is located at 1455 NW 107th Ave, Doral, FL 33172. The store can be reached by phone at (855) 466-7467. Store hours will be Monday through Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., and Sunday 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Beat the Heat with Tropical Prints and Sweet Treats

Despite the typical "vacationing dad syndrome" that has given quite a bad rep for tropical prints, it has seemingly become on-trend for Summer 2014 fashion.  It can be pulled off while still remaining cool and breezy while the sweltering heat radiates pretty much everywhere on the body.  

Speaking of sweltering heat, I have quite an active little toddler by the name of Taejin.  By active I am obviously referring to a marathon-running, Presidential speech giving, chocolate milk-wasted gladiator. Therefore, discovering Fruttare Fruit & Juice Bars has become a healthy and refreshing treat to share with him as we embark on our everyday Summer activities.

If it's not apparent by now, I am quite the healthy freak.  Upon a recent trip to Target* which usually starts with "I need dishwasher detergent and garbage bags only," turned into a cart filled with new discoveries like these frozen bars of joy.  Aside from the nutritional benefits of Fruttare Fruit & Juice Bars, they also come in 10 magical flavors.  My personal favorite is Strawberry, whileTaejin loves the Banana & Milk flavor.

My domestic-mom side whipped up some new concoctions using the Fruttare Fruit & Juice Bars, as they are made with real fruit and milk so the bars blend up extremely well.  It's a creative bit that entertains my son and keeps his belly satisfied too!  Check out my Pinterest page for recipes.

As seen all over the runways and fashion blogs, the sporty trend is all the rage for Spring/Summer 2014 fashion.  Denim shorts are ultimately an essential staple in a woman's Summer wardrobe, which is why I'm loving Levi's 501 shorts.  The fringed hem keeps it casual while the fit is sophisticated and comfortable.  Let's just say I pretty much...live in them.  Denim shorts don't have to strictly be paired with a basic tee and sandals, ladies.

A white mesh jersey top layered with a bright bandeau can instantly add a sporty effect to a basic pair of denim shorts.  The sporty shirt keeps the look young and fresh while a colorful underlay adds a pop of color.

Healthy Habits: 3-Day Purchased Juice Cleanse Results

If you've been living under a rock, then you may not have known by now that I am a little health freak who loves everything from goji berries to raw vegan chocolate desserts.  In the past, I've posted about juice cleansing and how much I love incorporating into my seasonal slim-down routine but I recently completed a summer cleanse and it's only appropriate that I share my results with you.

I know what you're thinking...what about the concept of chewing?  Don't you miss that?

The purpose of conducting a juice cleanse is to detoxify the body of all of the junk, alcohol or other bad toxins that have been consumed over time.  For a lack of better words, it allows the body to heal itself.  Although I typically prepare my own juices for a cleanse, this time around I purchased a Love Grace 3-day cleanse (ain't nobody got time for all of the time consuming juice making).  Their cleanse contains cold-pressed juices to ensure up to five times more nutrients than home juicing as well.

My 3-Day Cleanse with Love Grace Foods (per day):
16oz Purify (green juice)
4oz Ginger Bomb (a great wake-up)
16oz Super Cider or Longevity Tonic (similar to the master cleanse)
16oz Green Sunshine
16oz Green Protein Smoothie or Chocolate Superfood Smoothie or Probiotic Smoothie
16oz Restore

To purchase the same cleanse that I used, go to www.LoveGraceFoods.com.

After the cleanse, I lost approximately 7 pounds and received more clarity along with a boost of energy.    If you are curious as to how to prepare prior to conducting a juice cleanse, go back to my post about juice cleanse preparation.

The Most Comfortable Lingerie in the World

fashion blogger, top fashion blogger, miami fashion blogger, thirdlove, luvocracy, thirdlove lingerie, luxurious lingerie, affordable lingerie, affordable bras, panties, womens underwear, womens bras, luvocracy, style by lynsee, lynsee hee kyeong, womens undergarments, bath and body works, nyx cosmetics, yes makeup wipes, beauty blogger, youtuber, youtube beauty guru, style by lynsee, beauty tips 2014, 2014 lingerie


Well, ladies, I have to tell you about my recent rendezvous.  Nothing is more luxurious than high-quality undergarments against the skin because whatever touches your body needs to be:

1) Comfortable enough to wear underneath anything without giving that whole "granny panty" effect
2) Sexy enough to feel like J-Lo when you're dancing in front of the mirror in the mornings (no, just me?)
3) Sterilized, obviously

In the midst of searching for women's lingerie with all of these qualities, I was casually introduced to ThirdLove. Upon receiving their Mesh Plunge Bra and Bikini bottoms, I slipped them on to immediately feel like Mariah Carey with wind blowing through my hair.  It was then that I realized I wasn't in the middle of a desert, filming a music video but rather in my bedroom staring at a mobile fan pacing back and worth.  However, ThirdLove's tasteful lingerie not only has a luxurious look and feel.  Their pieces honestly feel as though there is nothing on your body.  The first time I wore my ThirdLove lingerie, I had to double check to make sure I was still wearing underwear.




On another note, they provide 1/2 cup sizes for better fit (although I'm part of the IBTC so I don't quite need any larger sizes).  If you're unfamiliar with IBTC, feel free to Google it.  Additionally, ThirdLove has a unique app that allows you to measure yourself with a virtual measuring tape from the convenience of your smartphone.  This seems to be a much better approach than having a random salesperson measuring your bust in a department store.

Check out my Summer Favorites on my Luvocracy page where you can purchase any of the following items, including ThirdLove lingerie:

Equipped for Lincoln Road + a Summer Picnic with Levi's

As much as I love denim shorts, I've always had a hard time finding a truly comfortable pair that are wearable in any occasion and my search has finally ended.  I fell in love with Levi's 501® Shorts almost immediately after I tried them on for the first time, as they are vintage-inspired with the same iconic fit that started it all.  

A classic blazer paired with denim shorts and white basics allows me to be equipped for summer days, whether I'm running to a quick meeting on Lincoln Road or switching shoes and ditching the blazer for a picnic in the park with my son.

To polish off the outfit, I'm wearing a structured navy blazer which hits right where the Levi's 501® Shorts end.  Pairing a long blazer with shorts not only counteracts the shortness/tightness of them, but it also elongates the legs.

Of course, the accessories complete the outfit so I decided to kick it up a notch by throwing in a leopard printed belt and my Guess watch.  When shopping for the perfect denim shorts, I suggest looking for a button fly with a raw hem and soft roll like these.  They also sit right below the natural waist, which is ultra comfortable for any activity.

The Summer Essential: Romper

Every girl in the world needs at least one (or twelve) rompers in her closet, especially during the summer season.  I know what you may be thinking.  But I feel like a 4-year-old when I'm wearing a one-piece.  However, feeling young and vibrant when wearing a clothing item is fabulous.  As an essential item for Summer 2014, a romper is the perfect one-piece garment that never really goes out of style and can be worn with various body types.  After stopping by the new Everything But Water boutique in Aventura Mall, I spotted this little Nanette Lepore number and absolutely fell in love.

Upon perusing through Luli Fama swimwear, Mara Hoffman cover-ups and Michael Kors accessories, I couldn't help but gravitate towards this gorgeous navy blue romper.  Needless to say, I've been living in it.  Proof: I wore it in the video that I posted yesterday as well.

The beaded embellishment on the front portion of this romper gives it such a vibrant look and feel while requiring very little accessories to complete the look.  I paired it with some strappy heels to dress it up, but this would also be great for a day at the beach.  Aside from its appearance, a romper is also extremely comfortable for any occasion as long as it's fitted well.  

Let's talk about my shopping experience with Everything But Water.

Everything But Water had an amazing fitting team to help me throughout my entire experience and made sure that it felt and looked great on me.  For example, a pear shaped woman would look amazing with a romper that's embellished on the upper portion of the piece while curvy girls look great in a romper that gathers at the waist.  For those who are a little top heavy, high necklines or frills work well.

Who doesn't love snacks?  It has been highly requested to feature my son in more blog posts and/or videos, so we filmed how to make some of his favorite healthy snacks in the little amount of time that is available in a day to make them.  Feeding children nourishing food is important, as they burn off plenty of energy throughout the day.  Most of the items used in this video were all purchased from Trader Joe's, but any natural food store will do.  

Taejin's Favorite Healthy Snacks:
  • Apples with Peanut Butter and Raisins
  • Crunchy Fro-yo Banana Bites 
  • Cheesy Pizza-Dilla
  • Pick-One Snack Tray
What are some of your (or your kiddos') favorite snacks?

As I'm sitting at my dining room table staring at my pink covered Lorna Jane planner, I can't help but realize how quickly time has gone by over the past two (almost three) years.  Becoming a mother and being able to watch my son Taejin, grow over the years have been the most cherished moments of my life and I'm grateful to be his mommy.  More importantly, I'm endlessly grateful for having him in my life and making each day better than the rest.

Therefore, today's blog post is dedicated to all of the other mothers out there (whether they are single mothers, grandmothers, great-grandmothers, guardians, etc.).  It's undoubtedly the hardest job given, but also quite rewarding.  So, it's only right that I feature Taejin in today's blog post :)

My son lives and breathes for the basic essentials in life: gummy bears, chocolate milk, shoes (like mommy) and hats.  He's rocking a leopard printed ALDO hat paired with various textures and colors. 

The inspiration behind my look is derived straight off the runway, reminiscent of the Spring 2014 oxford trend shown by Alexander Wang.  I love the crisp look and feel paired with minimalistic white heels and denim textured pieces.

Healthy Habits: How to Prepare for a Juice Cleanse

The best way to start off a new season is by detoxifying the body for a refreshing transformation, which is a typical routine in "casa de Lynsee."  Juice cleansing has become quite the "trend" throughout the nation, but it often gets misconstrued regarding its purpose.  Many people have an assumption that by doing a juice cleanse means that a weight loss of 50 pounds in two weeks will occur.  It is true that by doing any type of detox cleanse some weight loss is bound to happen; however, most of it is water weight.  Additionally, the main purpose of a juice cleanse is to allow the body to heal itself.

After consuming multiple juice cleanses over this past year, I've learned that it truly helps give my body time to heal after putting toxins in my body and get back on the healthy eating track.  For example, I was eating my fair share of pizza and cupcakes prior to the approach of Spring.  Therefore, a juice cleanse was necessary for my body.  My body and mind felt fatigued and I lost focus, but after a seasonal detox I felt amazing.

The thought of not chewing on anything edible for three days is quite frightening, especially for juice cleansing first-timers.  Hence, my latest video "How to prepare for a juice cleanse."  Check it out and let me know if you dare to try it out!  Trust me, you will feel amaze balls afterwards.

Rave Prints and Sporty Neutrals.

Over the weekend, I pretty much live in these chic Express jogger pants because they can be dressed up or down.  The sporty trend has been incorporated into many of my weekend outfits, as it allows me to be comfortable yet presentable at the same time.  The term "comfortable" does not have to translate to "today I'm going to look reckless."  Therefore, pairing a printed top (like this black and white number from LE TOTE) with some joggers can really heighten a look.

Of course, adding some strappy heels is a must.  It could always be dressed down with a pair of sneakers but then I look like an oompa loompa so I tend to grab heels for a chic look.   Don't get me wrong - I wear flats and sneakers too.
