If you know me, you know I can’t function in the grocery store. It’s like another world and I don’t speak the language and I don’t know what I’m doing ha. The phrase “I’m heading to the grocery store, is there anything you’d like” sets off anxiety. Thing is I love to eat. Like LOVE to eat. I’m just extremely picky about it and I can’t really cook a variety of things and I love to change things up, otherwise I get bored. Do I sound crazy yet?
Enter Deliver Lean! I literally returned home from Novi, Michigan with food on the brain and the pending anxiety of where I was going to get food from because my fridge would be barren. I get to my door and there’s a cooler like the one you see above filled to the brim with not only delicious food but healthy food. The things I should be eating (so I can shut it down at the pool/beach this summer). Deliver Lean offers prepared food delivery right to your doorstep. The menus are completely customizable to meet your tastes. My boyfriend laughed at my cooler which clearly states in bold type: No Mayo, No Sour Cream, No Guacamole. He’s like that’s all the good stuff! Those are my big food no’s though, I’m pretty willing to try other things. They offer traditional meal plans, gluten-free, hcg, paleo and organic options. I’ve been getting traditional and paleo meals. This is honestly the healthiest I’ve ever eaten in my life. I’m surprised I haven’t noticed or wanted to add salt to anything. Everything tastes great.
Yesterday they sent over two breakfast options for that day and today. The Blueberry White Chocolate French Toast Bake was divine. The syrup was sugar free and I couldn’t even tell. I’ve never had anything like that. I love how everything is fresh with no preservatives, freeze-dried, or prepackaged food. I also received a cold pressed juice which I’m currently drinking (my homie Alex would be so proud). Four paleo lunch and dinner options and one traditional meal and a wrap. Intense right. I couldn’t be happier, I get a variety of food not to mention new things I’ve never tried like Coconut Crusted Mahi Fingers with Sweet Thai Chili Sauce.
So you guys can get in on the action and get yourselves healthy and fit for the summer an on enjoy 2 Days Free with the purchase of a 1 month plan ($7.95 per meal. 3 meal minimum per day). The next cooler I receive tomorrow, I’ll try and do a “unboxing” video for. Til next time.
So I shared with you the bootcamp video of me working with a few girls from Bad Girls Club to find them a man now check out the offiical series. Find Me My Man premieres tonight at 9 PM eastern standard time! Here’s a few sneak peaks for ya:
Oxygen is giving the most challenged daters the skills they need to land their man in the dynamic new series “Find Me My Man.” When Miami’s most hard-to-match ladies have trouble finding the men of their dreams, they call on tough-love matchmaker Natalie Clarice. Known locally as the “Titan of Love,” Natalie runs the successful agency Heart & Soul International, which helps urban professional women overcome their dating faux pas in order to find their perfect match. In each episode Natalie and her team of romance strategists put two single ladies to the ultimate test using a variety of unconventional and unique techniques. Natalie is determined to crack Miami’s hardest cases and isn’t afraid to tell it like it is to her strong-willed clients, who are often their own worst enemies when it comes to dating. From a client who has a 15-minute countdown clock for her dates to impress her, to a pageant queen who wears her sash and tiara on first dates, these women have some outrageous quirks that are keeping them from finding love.
A few weeks ago Oxygen network invited me to film a webisode to help a few of the ladies from Bad Girls Club with their fashion choices for dates. I was brought in as a fashion expert for Janae Bradford, Valentina Anyanwu, and Nancy Denise as they searched for a man during Oxygen’s Find Me My Man Bootcamp. It was a really interesting experience. Video always is. I was given a room full of clothing and shoes to completely rework the girls style for their dates. They needed a
little bit lot of guidance on their path to finding a good man. Working with these girls was probably my most challenging (and a little scary) project yet. I like a challenge though. Definitely check out the video to see me go head to head with one of the girls.
On set chilling with the other two influencers Rosy and Tami
Check out the video below and let me know what you think. Stay tuned to watch the series premiere on April 9th!
Grant Glasses c/o Benji Frank MUFE Lipstick Rouge Artist Intense in Moulin Rouge Eleven Objects Collar
Rain, humidity + my hair…no dice. Thanks a lot Miami for this gloomy day. Anyway, Benji Frank sent over these awesome prescription glasses for me to try a few weeks ago. I’m blind as a bat and wear contacts usually but sometimes you’ll catch me in glasses when wearing contacts becomes too much for my eyes. It’s really important to have a cute pair that you love. I have a leopard print cat eye pair and now these. The simplicity and classic feel of this pair has made it my go to these past few weeks.I’m wearing them right now actually. :p
The Grant is described as being popularized in the 60s by the who’s who. I know a lot of you watch American Horror Story, well it takes place in 1964 and Dr. Oliver Thredson (Leatherface eek) totally wears the same style. I picked out my frames via Benji Frank’s cool Virtual Try On program which was really easy to use. The boy swears that you cannot purchase glasses without first trying them on, OBVIOUSLY he was proven wrong. For people like him though Benji Frank has another cool program called “Try 5 At Home” so all bases are covered. I also urge you to check out their One Pair, One Vision philosophy and business model. Very similar to Tom’s and really sets them apart from other online eyewear options available.
This was a long overdue post, due to my broken camera and waiting on photographers to send me pictures and them not sending them. Lame city. Thanks to Maria over at The Wordy Girl for snapping these photos of me and sending them over the same day. You rock. Fun fact. I called this post “Double Vision” since I shot these photos while wearing my contacts because I was out at another photoshoot.
It is so hard to pick favorites when you have such an excellent collection like FRONTROW to choose from. Above you’ll see my favorite pieces, there was no way I was keeping the image count below 4-6 like I usually aim for. I’m loving the sporty feel of these basics. I’ve been looking for the perfect leather sweatpant ever since Jayne Min put it on my radar and I think I finally found them. I know you’re thinking sweatpants, really Ria…but they’re luxe and it’s leather and I have to agree with Jayne when she said:
Imagine these pants as regular sweatpants. Leather really makes all the difference.
Talk to me about the perforated red leather both in pant and shirt form. I just wanna run my fingers over those babies. The crop top is combination of all my favorite things right now, white, a high neck and a bare midriff. I love the colored string detail on the pants, it’s a nice feminine touch. All the leather looks so buttery soft. This is sorta my ideal future wardrobe right here. High end basics that I can mix and match in unique ways and with very little effort. I could dress these pieces up, I could dress them down. I’d not only feel so confident and in charge but I’d also be comfortable too which you really can’t beat. So good on you Shateria Moragne-el, you know just what’s up. I love the blurb below from the BIO page of the website so much, if you know me in real life you know that’s how I roll.
