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!

Gray Maxi's and Stripes.


Spring season means one of two things: Miami will begin to become almost unbearably hot and sweaty or maxi skirts are a must have.   Pairing a neutral toned maxi skirt with a vibrant top gives an effortless look while maintaining comfort (and allowing your legs to breathe).  Another option which is great for Spring is to rock an edgy crop top with some strappy heels.

These cobalt statement earrings are a beautiful accessory to glam up a casual look, even though I rarely seem to wear earrings.  However, I've been loving this pair from LE TOTE, for adding some glitz to a neutral outfit.

Loud and Dressed Down in Wynwood

Sporty chic items are right on trend this season, and tend to be the gravitational pieces that pop out when casual days are in full effect.  A simple and effortless way of pulling a casual look together is by throwing on some jogging pants (these Express pants are similar), along with a graphic tee and sporty blazer.  Paired with booties or running shoes, it gives a polished look that doesn't scream "I'm lazy."

Wynwood Miami has some of the most intricate street art decorated throughout the buildings and walls of the area.  It's one of those regions of the city that is perfect for gaining inspiration or insight.

Luxury French Bakery Ladurée Arrives in Miami

If you've been living under a rock for the past ten years, then you may not have realized that French luxury dessert maker Ladurée has been the much anticipated opening on Miami Beach's Lincoln Road.  Well, my fellow macaron lovers, it's finally open!  Established in 1862, the iconic sweets maker houses only the most delicious macarons known to man (or woman).

After being taken over by the PAUL bakery chain, Ladurée developed into a global chain of pastry shops and/or tea rooms with the best tasting macarons in the world.  Although, the macarons from their Madison Avenue location in New York City seem to taste better than Ladurée's Miami bakery.

New York Fashion Week: Stylecaster Media Lounge

In an attempt to stay tolerably toasty during New York Fashion Week, I had the pleasure of attending the Stylecaster Media Lounge at the ever so tranquil Buddakan restaurant in Chelsea.  Located at 75 9th Avenue and 16th Street, Stephen Starr's incredible restaurant was the perfect hub for a media retreat which allowed for a little indulgence and recharging.  Upon a welcoming greeting by Stylecaster's staff,  I immediately gravitated to the infamous Italian roasters Illy where I could get a little boost before diving into some between show blogging.  


There weren't many media lounges available aside from a few located inside Lincoln Center, so I was more than genial to get pampered in the Stylecaster Media Lounge.  Aside from endless espresso, I also received a much needed massage from Beauty Booked in addition to a nail revamp by my newfound favorite nail brand - Mischo Beauty.  Hairstyles and make-up stations were also available courtesy of Prettier Please, and eyebrow shaping by Elke Von Freudenberg.






If you aren't familiar with Stylecaster, the high-growth media and ad-tech company integrates technology with superior editorial content to drive beauty and fashion for brands and consumers.  The Stylecaster Media Group houses its corporate office in The Big Apple, with more than 7 million unique monthly visitors and four owned and operated properties.

 Stay tuned for future projects with Stylecaster X Style By Lynsee!

Although the bread and butter of New York Fashion Week are the runway shows, we can all agree that street style is the driving force behind its allure.  I recently hosted the Miami launch event for Fashom, a new fashion app that allows its users to post photos of personal style and share throughout social networks.  

Amongst attendees of Fashom's app launch were Miami's top fashion bloggers, beauty gurus and elite professionals in the fashion industry.  With innovative features such as geo-tagging, the Fashom app launched just in time for New York Fashion Week and continues to grow country by country.  I've been loving the app as a platform to share the details of my outfits for the week!

Top bloggers received pampering sessions provided by BLO blow dry bar (Brickell) and Bella Nail Spa while previewing the Fashom app and mingling with CEO and Founder, Mitali Saxena.  When asked about the inspiration behind her innovative app, she explained,

"Friends very often commented on my photos, specifically about what I was wearing.  They would all want to know the same thing - how much did my outfit cost and where did I purchase it?"

Despite the sudden cold rush that recently hit what seems like the entire nation, I have discovered the most comfortable swimwear collection that is my must-have item for a little "spring break" traveling.  The Mi Ola collection compiles vibrant colors with the sophisticated style and inspiration from tropical nature in Tamarindo, Costa Rica (think - the ocean, palm trees, gorgeous macaws, and tropical flowers).  I don't know about anybody else, but when I'm searching for the perfect bikini it must have: 

1) A snug fit that won't shift when I'm playing with son in the sand or ocean

2) A chic and sexy design that doesn't look like I'm rocking granny panties

3) Adjustable bottoms (just in case I have too many vegan cupcakes one day)

After discovering the Mi Ola collection, I had the chance to find out the inspiration behind the beautiful swimwear from Founder of Mi Ola, Helena Fogarty. Helena expressed,

"I started Mi Ola because I needed a chic, sexy suit that would stay on while I surfed.  I couldn't find any!  I have a background in fashion and business, so I decided to make the beach better for women and design a line that combines high style, high quality and high function.  We don't have to wear granny pants on the beach to make sure our assets are covered.  And actually, if we do, those big bottoms often come down more easily in the waves!"

 Although I love the warm climate of Miami, I recently flew up north for the holidays to spend time with my family and get a taste of the cold weather.  When I say cold, I don't mean a slight breeze.  As I pried open my eyes this morning and gazed out into the snow covered grass, I couldn't help but cringe at the sight of it.  There's something about the bitter feeling of being slapped in the face with cold when I step outside that doesn't make me scream for joy.  On the other hand, it gives me the opportunity to layer wardrobe pieces and rock my winter boots or jackets.

I typically live in strappy sandal heels and skirts, but I've really been loving the fact that I can wear my winter pieces while I'm traveling for the holidays.  Aside from fashion, the snow on the ground makes it feel much more like the holidays are approaching.  Christmas lights on palm trees just don't express the holidays quite as well.


Lately, my go-to denim has been DL 1961's Emma in Athens jeans which are the perfect fit and provide the most slimming silhouette.  The jeans have more of a legging-jean fit with faux front pockets, which I love because they make legs look slimmer without bulky pockets.

I've also been loving the punk-inspired trend, which I've incorporated in this look by simply wrapping a plaid shirt around my waist along with a graphic top and leather jacket.  It's such a quick and easy way of pulling a look together that is chic yet comfortable.

Happy Friday everyone!  After much Baseling, Miami still came out to attend Trini in Private's annual holiday event that I hosted alongside Mercedes-Benz of Coral Gables and L'Oreal.  On December 10th, Miami and Brickell's most elite came out for an evening of beauty, luxury, cuisine and fun.  We began the night with light bites provided by MPP Brickell, Spaghettino, and Brasileiro Miami.  LeSutra sparkling liqueur flowed endlessly, while Birthday Cake and Ice Cream Wines poured up deliciously decadent glasses of wine for all guests.

One of the main attractions of the evening was the latest collection of Mercedes-Benz vehicles which were parked elegantly in front of Trini in Private, where many guests previewed the interior of each car.

A special thank you to all of my blogger sisters who came out to show their love and support, in addition to all of you who I met at the event.  It was such an exceptional experience, and I loved meeting all of you!

Located in the heart of Brickell, Trini in Private offers an array of relaxing services and their team caters to your wants and/or needs.  With six locations in Florida, Trini in Private has become the mecca of beauty and salon services.  Prior to the event that I hosted, Trini pampered me with a shampoo, cut and blow dry.  Additionally, my hair was colored with a chocolate gloss and light highlights which I absolutely fell in love with.  I highly recommend going to Marie, who impressed me with her professionalism and skill.  It was the quickest and most efficient hair job that I have ever received, and I rarely trust new technicians with my hair!  

Aside from my hair, Trini also catered to my nails by providing me with a Shellac manicure which was my first time trying this and I don't think I can go back to a regular manicure after this experience.  I've heard so many rave reviews about Shellac, and decided to try it for myself after Trini suggested it.  It dries instantly and doesn't chip for at least 10 days.  If you're like me, you have a toddler, or you don't have all of the time in the world to do your nails, then I suggest trying the Shellac manicure by Trini.

Another gem that I discovered at Trini was their Paraffin treatment that was applied to my feet as a warm wax application that made my feet feel like silk prior to a pedicure.  Let's just say this - it does wonders for the ladies who wear heels often.
