Style By Lynsee on Instagram

I typically spend my Sunday mornings on my balcony, nibbling on fresh fruit (and of course, who doesn't eat their fruit on a gold plate?)

Recently, I had the pleasure of receiving a private invite from Calypso St. Barth to preview their latest collection and devour a delicious light brunch inside their Bal Harbour location.  This shot was taken in the dressing room, as I was trying on my favorite new pieces!

Calypso St. Barth has beautiful home decor!  One of my guilty pleasures is browsing home decor items online or via Pinterest.
Morning ritual: Black coffee in my silk robe.  Oh yeah.

One of my favorite new nail trends for the fall season that repeats itself from last year: Oxblood.

This photo shoot at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden was so much fun, and a beautiful venue.
I've been hearing so much about this new water that Whole Foods carries, alkaline fulvic trade mineral infused water by blk.  I was a little hesitant to try it at first, but it ended up tasting exactly like.....water.  Who knew?!
A new runway hair trend that I've been playing with lately, after seeing designers such as Rebecca Minkoff showcasing it at New York Fashion Week, braids.

It started out as a Sunday ritual, but turned into an everyday ritual: Pumpkin Spiced Lattes from Starbucks!!

Throwback.  I was such a classy little girl, huh?

Friday Favorites: Healthy Snack Choices

Although my diet is rather healthy, that doesn't mean that I don't have the urge to snack sometimes.  What I found about working out is that I actually become hungrier the more active I am.  Instead of grabbing something filled with fat and calories, reach for a snack that is equally crunchy or sweet.  Another tip that helps curb my cravings is to eat small meals throughout the day versus eating two or three large meals.  What are some of your favorite snacks?

Here are some of my favorite healthy snack choices:

1) Hummus and Carrots | Carrots are nutrient-rich and delicious with a side of hummus.  I like this roasted red pepper hummus from Whole Foods.  Next time you're craving something crunchy, grab some of these.

2) Sauteed Spinach and Shiitake Mushrooms | When I'm craving something savory, I like to whip up this quick dish.  Simply sautee some garlic in a pan, add the mushrooms with a few handfuls of spinach and a drizzle of low-sodium soy sauce and you have a yummy dish that is good for you!

3) Raw Almonds and Dried Cranberries | This is the best of both worlds because I get something crunchy and sweet at the same time.  When I'm on-the-go, I grab a handful of these and I instantly have a boost of energy.

4) Mediterranean Crunch Salad | This is light and packed with crunchy vegetables that are good for you - garbanzo beans, fennel, cucumber, parsley, kalamata olives (very few), onions, red pepper, kale, cherry tomatoes, mint, lemon juice and apple cider vinegar.  It's perfect for a late afternoon snack.
