Healthy Foods to Incorporate in Your Life

We are all always looking for the next best diet trick, or the next best "kale" to incorporate in our lives, but don't get all wrapped up in that. It is important to have a balanced diet, but try adding in some healthier alternatives here and there. Make it more of a lifestyle and not a quick fix.

Below you will find 7 must-haves to include in your "lifestyle"

1. Hemp hearts- These are powerful super seeds that pack 10 grams of protein and 10 grams of omega. Similar to chia and flaxseed, but more nutritional benefits! Throw it in your salads, smoothies or even some oatmeal in the morning!

2. Avocado- The easiest go-to snack! Slice that sucker open, add a little lime juice, salt, lemon pepper and voila, you have an easy healthy snack. You can also pair avocados with just about anything. You can make guacamole, put it on lettuce wraps, salads, and even with eggs in the morning.

3. Apple Cider or Balsamic Vinegar (organic of course)- Vinegar is your best friend. It is packed with probiotics so it helps you digest food easier and it is also filled with antioxidents that will help counter the effects of free radicals. Read about free radicals here

4. Fresh Citrus Juice- This is the easiest to incorporate since you probably already have a ton of limes and lemons in your fridge. Switch up your water drinking routine by adding in lemon into your water. Citrus fruits offer a great range of vitamin C, folate and potassium. 

5. Almond butter- This is a great protein punch when you are on the go. Add some onto a banana in the morning or for an afternoon snack. Did I mention it is also ridiculously delicious?

6. Flax oil- This is a fantastic addition to any salad dressing, shake or even just your oatmeal. The taste obviously is not the loveliest so that is why I suggest adding it to something you are about to eat or drink. Flax oil is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and it is also gluten free, vegan friendly and is non-gmo.

7. Hummus- Since hummus is so rich in protein, it can help you fight hunger by keeping you full for longer! Use hummus in place of mayo on sandwiches and breakfast sandwiches. It is delicious!

Hope you enjoyed these healthy tips!

How to Rock a Matching Set the Right Way

I am back at it with a matching two-piece set. The look of this two piece is incredible, but that is not what made me fall in love with it fully, it is because of how high-quality the fabric is. The skirt also does a magic trick and sucks in any "curves" I do not want to highlight, which was an added bonus!

I paired this set with a an oxblood colored hat, which I am not sure if you knew, it is this season's hottest color! I toned down the rest of the outfit with neural heels, a gem and stone mid-length necklace from Chanel and a gold Chanel bag.

This outfit is perfect for a date or even just a fancy dinner party! You will be sure to make waves when entering a crowded room with this winning matching set!

One..Two..Perfect

I have a petite yet curvy figure so I am always looking for ways to accentuate my curves and elongate my body. These two are rather difficult to achieve, but once matching 2-piece sets came into style, I found that these sets are my body's forte. This is why I absolutely love this one that I found by WOW Couture at Ami Clubwear. I paired this set with a knit sweater, over the knee high boots and a floppy hat.

Spring Forward to a Moments of Chic Moment with PiperlimeXSavvyJavvy

Even Californian's are complaining of this imbalanced weather. One day we are wearing shorts, the next day we are throwing on OTK boots to stay warm. Let's just say, I am so ready for Spring, and even more ready to start wearing all of my beautiful Spring and Summer clothes that are waiting to see the light of day!

I have been very honored to partner up with Piperlime for their final installment of their Moments of Chic campaign. With Spring fashion on our minds, I have the perfect outfit for you to look effortlessly-posh. These nautical striped shorts and these muted gray strappy heels are a huge bonus in my closet. I can dress down the shorts with a regular white t-shirt and Superga high-tops, or can dress them like I did here with these gorgeous shoes and off-white blouse. The heels pair perfectly with these shorts and since they have that muted tone to them, you can pair them with just about any dress you have in your closet!

Juno Vibes in LA

As many Angelenos were complaining about the rain on their ride home from work last night (I am included in this), the East Coast was on house arrest from Juno. Secretly I would be tickled if people rented the 2007 movie Juno while being forced to stay inside due to Juno the storm! Only fellow hipsters would sign up for something like that!

To stay warm and cozy during the rainy Monday day I wore a chunky knit sweater dress and over the knee suede boots. These boots are everything any more, and extremely affordable. They are a must have in any fashionistas closet!

Flamingos Are My Friends

I fell in love with this adorable ETSY shop Love Drop Tee's that has an abundance of cute totes, tees and sweatshirts with fun sayings on it. Their items are a perfect gift for your girlfriend or even for yourself to rock on a sunny day by the beach. In this picture I am sporting their "Yes Way Chardonnay" tote bag and their "Flamingos Are My Friends" tee! You can get these items here on ETSY. Tell them that Javvy recommended you!

Must Haves of the Week!

I have compiled the latest must haves and trust me, you will want these in your closet!

Start Your Year with a Flat Tummy

I wanted to start the new year looking good in my new clothes I got over the holidays, so I partnered up with Flat Tummy Tea to try their miraculous Four Week Fab to flatten out my tummy. I have a lot of food allergies and a very sensitive stomach so I am a stickler on what I put into my body. I liked FTT because it has natural cleansing herbs in it, so it helps you nix out the impurities in your body!

Every 2 nights I drank my Flat Tummy Afresh and in the mornings I drank my Everyday Flat Tummy. I stayed diligent and I got amazing results. Let's just say all of those holiday cookies are nowhere to be found! Kudos to you FTT, you are starting off my 2015 looking and feeling better!

Journey with Javvy to Italy: Cinque Terre

Oh Italy, how I have had a love affair with your beloved pasta, vino, outstanding fashion designers, history and your beautiful architecture. I finally had the opportunity to divulge in this beautiful country and visit its most charming cities. My first stop in Italy was Cinque Terre. This place is filled with the most intensely constructed fishing villages, that happen to provide the most dramatically stunning coastal scenery you will ever see in your life. The juxtaposition between the nature and the colorful buildings in Cinque Terre make it something really special to see. I do not think you could possibly be in a bad mood during your visit there.

The 5 villages in Cinque Terre are Monterosso, Riomaggiore, Vernazza, Corniglia and Manarola. What will you find in these villages? Just a handful of authentic restaurants that you better make reservations at, gift shops, gelato shops, oh and castles. If you trying to escape reality and find yourself, I highly suggest doing Airbnb and getting yourself an apartment amongst the steeply terraced cliffs of these villages. If you consider yourself the outdoorsy type then you will absolutely appreciate that there is a trail you can hike that will lead you through all the villages! I do suggest you have good sneakers and hiking sticks. This is not an easy hike many of us in LA are used to (i.e Runyon Canyon).

Where to eat? Truly you can eat at any of the restaurants and enjoy your meal. My personal two I ate at and enjoyed for dinner were Restorante Il Gambero Rosso and Vernazza Wine Experience. Sit outside if the weather permits at the Wine Experience. For brunch, you must go have croissants at Il Pirata delle Cinque Terre. Two brothers own that spot and they make you feel like family.

What to wear? Loose-fitting, comfortable clothes. I personally stuck to wearing sundresses and gladiator sandals the majority of the trip.
