Sluggishness sucks—here’s how to avoid it

You know that feeling when you’re awake but you don’t feel fully awake?

It’s kind of hard to explain.

It’s kind of like this weird, in-between state where your body’s up but your mind & eyes are still half asleep.

Either you totally get me, or you’re thinking I’m completely nuts… LOL. Either way, I’m sure we’ve all felt sluggish at one time or another, right?

I use to wake up feeling this way, way more than I would’ve liked, so I tried different tactics to avoid the feeling. In my opinion, it’s way better to try to prevent it than to try to get rid of it, because getting rid of it is much harder.

Here’s what works for me:

Quick ways to avoid sluggishness during the day:

Start the day off right

This is key. For me this means drinking a glass of water first thing in the morning & having a nutritious breakfast (for energy). The past few weeks, I’ve also been having cold brew coffee with almond milk. I love starting my day with a morning workout, but lately, I’ve been working out after work or during lunch instead.

Take a walk outside

Getting some fresh air & moving your body makes such a huge difference. I try to take 2 walking breaks during the day while I’m at work.

Ice roll after the shower

I loveeee ice rolling after I take a shower in the morning—before I put on my makeup. It wakes me up because of the iciness, & it also makes my makeup go on smoother. This is the one I use. I keep it in the freezer, & I roll it over my face & neck.

& that reminds… THIS MIST!!

I’m OBSESSED with this mist! I put it on right after I’m done putting on makeup, & sometimes randomly throughout the day. It’s super refreshing, & it gives me a little glow. My friends have noticed it too ; ) It also smells really good! I spray it over my face and sometimes on my chest. I wrote a full blog post about it here, if you want to check it out!

Drink up—chug, chug, chug (your water)

So you stay hydrated : ) I kind of a game out of it. In the first few hours of the day, I try to drink a glass of water every hour. It’s super fun going to the bathroom every 45 minutes (joke), but it’s worth it. It makes me feel so much more awake. Plus, it’s good for your skin & wellbeing.

If you only try one tip, try this one.

I’ve also noticed when I get headaches, it’s usually because I didn’t drink enough water. So for me, it’s also a way to prevent headaches. WIN!

Keep the music going

Pandora… Spotify… YouTube, you get it… Here are some JOYFETTI playlists if you want to check ’em out.

Flip the sticks in your diffuser or light a citrus candle

When I was in middle school, I remember this one night, I was staying up super late, studying for finals, & I laid out a bunch orange peels on my desk to help me stay awake. I read that citrus smells could do that. It worked, to a certain point. I still use this trick today, but usually with diffusers or candles ; ) I light a candle or flip the sticks in my diffuser. When you flip the sticks it makes the scent stronger, kind of like you just opened it.

If you can’t light a candle at your office, or don’t feel like putting a diffuser on your desk, check out these cute, mini scent pods—they’re portable aromatherapy pods, & the eucalyptus scent smells amazingggg! It’s relaxing and refreshing at the same time. I’m a big fan!

With that, I’m off to wash my face with grapeseed oil, shower & climb into bed. Happy (almost) FRIDAY!! : )

Grapeseed oil FTW: the best makeup remover EVER

We have two “soap dispensers” in our bathroom—one is branded, and it’s full of soap (normal), and the other one is this glass soap dispenser I filled with grapeseed oil, because I use it as makeup remover.

If you don’t already do this, this little trick will blow your mind.

I’ve been using grapeseed oil as makeup remover for years now & it literally swoops my makeup right off. Even my mascara. & EVEN the makeup I wear to weddings. It’s that good.

When we moved into our last apartment, I ordered us a bunch of bathroom accessories, like this glass soap dispenser, so I could make it easier to use the grapeseed oil. Genius, right? ; )

Arrash & my dad have both mistaken it as hand soap, but only once in a over a year—so I feel like the odds are good, but some confusion might happen if you put it on your bathroom counter. If you can deal with that, it’s totally worth it. (It’s worth it!) You’ll save so much time washing your face. It’s super efficient, & it actually feels good. I’ve never had any other makeup remover feel good, have you?

I usually squirt some in my hand (thanks to the soap dispenser) & rub it all over my face. Then I splash water on my face & wash it like I would with any other face wash.

Because it’s an oil, & I don’t want it to get in my eyes, sometimes I’ll lather a bar of soap and lightly wash my eyelids. If I do, I’ll usually put some more grapeseed oil on my face as a moisturizer before bed, kind of like a night serum.

It’s super moisturizing, so even on days I don’t wear makeup, I’ll still put grapeseed oil on my face before I go to bed. Sometimes I even add a little bit to my body lotion before I put it on—I just mix it in my palm.

Like most things, you can find some pretty big claims on grapeseed oil’s benefits if you do a quick Google search.

Here’s why I use it:

  • It literally swoops my makeup right off
  • It’s moisturizing
  • Our skin can absorb it easily
  • It doesn’t clog pores (coconut oil can)
  • It contains antioxidants, fights free radicals & promotes youthful-looking skin (WIN!)

Bonus: it’s also known to treat acne & tighten skin.

Give it a try next time you’re washing off your makeup & LMK how you like it!

A sweet treat without added sugar: apples + nut butter

My dad always says we have two stomachs—one for food, and another for dessert, so even if we’re full from food, he says we always have room for dessert. He has a HUGE sweet tooth.

I remember this one time we took a family trip to New Jersey and we were at this restaurant/bakery and I turn around & my dad and nephew are starring into this display full of pastries and their eyes are just beaming. Picture the heart eye emoji—that’s basically what they looked like.

I definitely inherited his sweet tooth, but every once in a while I’ll cut out sugar for a little bit. 

So I have a bunch go-to’s for when I’m avoiding sugar but still want something sweet.

This combo is one of my favorites: apples with nut butter.

When you’re picking your peanut butter or almond butter check the nutrition label, to make sure it doesn’t have any added sugar—a lot of them do. Almond butter & peanut butter are delicious on there own, & then you get some natural sweetness from the apple and it’s perfect.

Lately, I’ve been loving Justin’s almond butter. It only has two ingredients: dry roasted almonds & palm oil & I love the taste.

After I dip my apple in almond butter, I usually dip it into chia seeds, because they’re full omega-3 and fiber. Sometimes I’ll also dip it into unsweetened coconut flakes just for fun.

LMK if you guys want more ideas like this. I love dessert, but I also have a ton of go-to alternatives.

Chat with you all tomorrow! : ) xx

Kombucha benefits… Bring ’em on!

A few weeks ago I dreamt someone made a smaller bottle of kombucha & we could buy it in stores. No joke, the next morning I spotted these cute, little bottles of Health-Ade Kombucha in Whole Foods. My dream literally came true.

I was so happy. Mostly because I usually can’t finish an entire bottle in a day, and sometimes, sadly, the rest would go to waste if I forgot about it the next day. I hate wasting, so having this smaller option was really exciting.

Arrash was confused how a small bottle of kombucha could make me so excited.

I told my mom the whole story later that day, and she said, “that’s great, usually dreams don’t come true.” LOL, thanks for the pep talk, mom ; )

The bottles in these photos are the original size, not the small one, but I’ll share some pics of the small bottles soon. If you want to see them now, I snapped a pic of the small bottle I’m drinking right now (also Pink Lady Apple) on Snapchat if you want to check it out (username: joyfetti)

If you guys are already big fans of kombucha (love it!), LMK what your favorite brands/flavors are so I can check them out.

If you’re not familiar with kombucha, here’s a little bit about it. Kombucha is fermented tea that naturally contains probiotics and healthy organic acids. It’s been around for thousands of years.

People drink it for all sorts of reasons.

Me, personally, I drink it because:

  • It supports a healthy gut since it naturally contains probiotics (WIN!)
  • It supports digestion
  • it tastes fricken amazing
  • & it makes me feel good

I’ve tried to get Arrash & my friend Jodie on board, and they don’t like the taste (yet! I’m still working on them), but I absolutely love it.

I even pretend it’s champagne sometimes, which is easy because it has bubbles. With the big bottles, I love pouring it into a champagne flute. It’s the best.

If you drink soda, try kombucha—maybe you can replace your soda for kombucha because of the bubbles.

Also… I’m now thinking it’s a good idea to stock both sizes in the fridge because I just finished my small bottle & I want more. Sometimes you just want more than you do other days, you know?

I started picking Health-Ade over the other brands mostly because of its taste but as I did more research, I was really impressed with them & happy my tastebuds picked them.

Their kombucha is 100% raw, and they only use cold-pressed juice from organic produce. I also love how they share a ton of info about their production process, on their site—they’re very open about it, which I like. Also, their kombucha is fermented 100% in glass to prevent plastic and metal leaching. I really like that! The only thing I wish they’d share, that I don’t believe they currently do, is how many live cultures are in each bottle. That would be really fun to know.

I’m off to clean the house a bit & maybe open up another bottle ; ) Happy (almost) Friday! Cheers!

A little photography tip

Back in April I was editing photos for this blog post and no matter what I did, I couldn’t get them right.

If you shoot in RAW you know there’s always some editing you want to do in Lightroom to give the photo more brightness and more accurate coloring.

I usually adjust the same settings to various degrees, and it’s all good—but this time the coloring was WAY OFF.

I kept playing with it and couldn’t get it right. I was SUPER frustrated. I felt like something had to be off, but couldn’t figure out what it was.

A few years ago, I took a photography class at CSM, and had the most amazing teacher, Barbara, who I’ve kept in touch with, so I texted Barbara, completely stumped, and she completely came through.

P.S. Barbara’s work is amazing. Take a look at it here: barbaraboissevain.com

So, she told me to check the color space on my camera to make sure it’s set to AdobeRGB. It wasn’t. Of course. It was set to sRGB when I took those photos. At some point it must have changed to sRGB, & I didn’t realize it—maybe my hand hit it.

That’s why I couldn’t get the coloring right. The photos were captured in a limited color space.

If you’re shooting in RAW, make sure the color space on your camera is set to AdobeRGB.

While I export my photos in sRGB when they’re intended for web, I always capture them in AdobeRGB so I have a larger color space to play with in Lightroom. AdobeRGB gives you a larger color space to play with than sRGB.

Since then, I’ve made it a habit to check my color space before I start using my camera, just to make sure it’s still set to AdobeRGB.

Just a little tip that could save you lot of frustration down the road, THANKS to Barbara ; ) Thanks, Barbara!

LMK if you find this helpful & if you’d like more posts about photography. I love getting feedback from you guys.

Thanks for reading! My eyes (& phone) are telling me it’s way past my bedtime so I’m off to shower & crawl into bed. Sweet dreams!

JOYFETTI book club: audiobooks you’ll love

When it comes to commuting, I’m not a fan—since I use to commute over an hour to get to work, I picked up a lot of tricks to make it more bearable.

My favorite trick, by far, was listening to audiobooks.

But they had to be the right audiobook.

The narrator’s reading style is super important to me. Personally, I like a narrator that reads how they speak—I definitely can’t do monotone because it puts me to sleep, which is the last thing you want when you’re driving.

Usually, I like the narrator to be the author, but “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck” by Mark Manson was an exception—it was read by Roger Wayne, not Mark Manson, & it was incredible.

I’m so obsessed with audiobooks that even though I don’t have a super long commute anymore, I still listen to them while I’m driving.

These are some my favorites that I HIGHLY recommend.

This was a super fun, funny read, as you can imagine. I listened to it about 2 years ago, & I definitely would listen to it again.

One of my favorite tidbits, which I think about all the time, is when Amy Poehler talks about her experience of writing the book and she shares her epiphany that “The doing is the thing. The talking and worrying and thinking is not the thing.” Basically, she’s telling us to get to it ; ) Do the thing, whatever that is for you at the moment.

“While listening to Yes Please, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll become convinced that your phone is trying to kill you. Don’t miss this collection of stories, thoughts, ideas, lists, and haikus from the mind of one of our most beloved entertainers. Offering Amy’s thoughts on everything from her “too safe” childhood outside of Boston to her early days in New York City, her ideas about Hollywood and “the biz”, the demon that looks back at all of us in the mirror, and her joy at being told she has a “face for wigs” – Yes Please is chock-full of words, and wisdom, to live by.”

Also a super fun, funny read. I listened to Bossypants probably 2 or 3 years ago, & recently re-listened to it—obviously a winner.

Tina Fey shares some awesome (& hilarious) stories from her life, including her time with SNL.

“At last, Tina Fey’s story can be told. From her youthful days as a vicious nerd to her tour of duty on Saturday Night Live; from her passionately halfhearted pursuit of physical beauty to her life as a mother eating things off the floor; from her one-sided college romance to her nearly fatal honeymoon – from the beginning of this paragraph to this final sentence.

Tina Fey reveals all, and proves what we’ve all suspected: you’re no one until someone calls you bossy.”

This book was amazing—I bookmarked so many parts so I could easily go back to them (audible has a clips & bookmarks feature, which I love!)

I first heard of Mark Manson when I read his piece “The Most Important Question of Your Life” on his site. It made such a big impact on me, it’s still bookmarked on my toolbar. I definitely recommend checking that out if you haven’t already—it’s an 8-minute read.

“Manson makes the argument, backed by both academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade but on learning to stomach lemons better…. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek….

There are only so many things we can give a f*ck about, so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear.”

This is the book I’m listening to right now.

Arrash & I watch The Daily Show ALL THE TIME so downloading this was a no brainer. Side note: Trevor Noah’s “Afraid of the Dark” stand up on Netflix is sooo good—definitely check that out too if you haven’t already.

I love this book for so many reasons: 1) Trevor Noah, obviously 2) His life story is incredible 3) It’s been teaching me so much about South Africa’s history and apartheid.

It’s packed with so much info, I use audible’s 30-second rewind feature all the time because I just don’t want to miss anything.

It moves pretty quickly, so I have to be in the right mindset for it, just so I can absorb everything it offers.

I’m so obsessed with this audiobook, I’ve already recommended it my sister, Arrash, and a ton of my friends. You’ll love it! I clearly am : )

“Trevor Noah, one of the comedy world’s fastest-rising stars and host of The Daily Show, tells his wild coming-of-age story during the twilight of apartheid in South Africa and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. In this Audible Studios production, Noah provides something deeper than traditional memoirists: powerfully funny observations about how farcical political and social systems play out in our lives.”

To me, this was an incredible book that was really empowering and shared great stories. I think part of the reason why I loved this book so much was because I listened to the audiobook—it’s read by Sheryl Sandberg, which gave it a really personal feel.

I’ve heard the criticism that it doesn’t speak to lower-income women and I totally get that.

In her latest book, Option B, she opens by acknowledging these socioeconomic differences, so it’s something she’s opened up about as well.

Side note: I pre-ordered Option B and started listening to it in the car when it came out, but I quicklyyyy started balling. I was crying my eyes out. I’ll definitely go back to it, but most likely won’t listen to it while I’m driving. Teary eyes aren’t great when you’re trying to see the road.

Have you guys read Option B yet? What are your thoughts?

This book was SUPER juicy. I couldn’t stop listening to it.

I have this rule that I don’t listen to audiobooks unless I’m driving, because it makes me more excited to drive LOL.

But I broke my rule so many times with this book, especially while on the stair master at the gym.

It’s a pretty light read but it also touches on heavy subjects like abuse, which for me, was difficult because it triggered some bad personal memories—just something to be aware of if it’s a trigger for you too.

I’m really excited to read her second book. She’s such an amazing writer & I love her writing style.

“The shocking, never-before-told story of the bizarre world inside the legendary Playboy Mansion – and finally the secret truth about the man who holds the key – from one of the few people who truly knows: Hef’s former number-one girlfriend and star of The Girls Next Door….

A cautionary tale and a celebration of personal empowerment, Down the Rabbit Hole reminds us of the importance of fighting for our dreams – and finding the life we deserve.”

What are some audiobooks you guys recommend? I’m always looking to download new ones : )

Bita

How to make perfect (& easy-to-peel) hard boiled eggs

A little over a year ago, Arrash & I moved into our first place together and all of a sudden I couldn’t make hard boiled eggs anymore.

The shell kept sticking to the egg, so it’d take off half of the egg white when I peeled it.

It was so annoying and such a waste. It didn’t look pretty, as you can imagine, & it threw off the texture of the egg because the egg wasn’t smooth when I peeled it.

I couldn’t figure out what was different—the stove? the heat? the eggs?

I tried adding more salt to the water while I boiled it, but it didn’t work. It was still sticky. So then I thought: OLIVE OIL.

IT WORKED.

Now that we’re in our new place, I still use this trick. The other day I hard boiled eggs for us & Arrash even mentioned how easy they were to peel.

He said I should put it on the blog. Lol, I said, “I know” ; ) So here we are.

Such an easy tip:

To make perfect, easy-to-peel hard boiled eggs, bring water, salt & OLIVE OIL to boil. The olive oil is KEY for making it easy to peel.

Once the water’s boiling, add the eggs, and lower the heat to medium. I usually use a spoon to lower the eggs into water, slowly, one at a time. Depending on your stove, and how you like your eggs, you may want to cook the eggs for 4-8 minutes. If you want it softer or a bit runny, 4-6 minutes should work. After they’re cooked I put them in bowl of cold water to cool them down.

So simple.

Let me know if you give it a try, how it works for you : )

I love having hard boiled eggs in the fridge because they’re a great source of protein—6 grams per egg, which is 12% of the daily recommended value.

They’re easy to grab in the morning to have with coffee, or during the day as a snack, so I usually make a batch once a week.

They’re definitely one of those items we almost always have in the house.

Okay, I’m off to get ready for bed. I’m planning to start the day off early tomorrow—fingers crossed ; ) so I’m heading to bed a bit earlier. Sweet dreams! xx

Sunday Splash: Big Sur + Carmel

[ Arrash & I in Big Sur ]

If you’re planning a trip to Carmel (even if it’s just a day trip), you have to check out these places.

Back in June, Arrash & I went to Carmel to celebrate my birthday & we discovered an amazing restaurant and two really cool wine tasting rooms.

Oh & we also tried to hike, but all the trails were closed because of the landslide that happened earlier in the year. Looks like some of them might be opening soon though if you want to check them out!

Since the trails were closed, we just parked on the road and walked by the shore. I loved it! It’s gorgeous there—definitely a great place for a date. If you bring a beach towel & some sandwiches, you can even just lay out at the beach.

Arrash told me to bring a change of clothes so we could go from hiking to dinner—again, apparently it’s a thing now, & luckily I knew exactly what to bring.

After we left Big Sur we went to Carmel for wine tasting. YUM!!

We went to Wrath and tried one of their tasting sets (is that what it’s called? LMK).

My favorite was the 2013 Pinot Noir. Here’s their description of it:

Wrath 2013 SLH Pinot Noir, Santa Lucia Highlands:
fresh palate with bright acidity highlight notes of cherries, dried herbs & raspberries

It was SO good. I usually steer clear of red wines (mostly to keep my teeth white, but also because I love a crisp white wine). But, I couldn’t have enough of this one. It was delicious. Possibly the best red wine I’ve ever had.

Next, we went to Scheid Vineyards, already a little tipsy—whoops ; ) My favorites there were their 2016 Pinot Noir Rose Estate Grown Monterey (a really delicious dry rose) & their 2016 Albarino.

Here’s their description of the Albarino:

2016 Albarino:
Pure and vibrant with lemon-lime aromas, flavors of ripe peaches and apricots, and mouthwatering acidity

Feeling even more buzzed (at least I was), we went to dinner at Montrio Bistro in Monterey—and I kid you not, I think about this one appetizer we had there alllllll the time. Seriously, all the time.

It was their “Mixed Mushrooms” with polenta.

It was so good we ordered it twice.

I randomly get cravings for it, so I’ve had to create some easy ways to get me through them.

Usually, I’ll get some mushroom soup from Whole Foods salad bar or this canned organic cream of mushroom soup, or I’ll sauté some mushrooms with olive oil, salt + pepper, and nutritional yeast. They do the job, but it’s obviously not the same thing. So hopefully we’ll go back there soon & I can order it again ; )

I also really love that their seafood is sustainable and they only use organic local produce. Big fan of that!

Okay, so next time you’re planning a trip to Carmel-by-the-Sea, check out these places:

  • Wrath — try the 2013 SLH Pinot Noir
  • Scheid Vineyards — try their 2016 Pinot Noir Rose & 2016 Albarino
  • Montrio Bistro — order their “Mixed Mushrooms” with polenta (twice!)

LMK if you guys have some places we should check out in Big Sur/Carmel/Monterey. I’d love to check them out next time we’re there.

Okay, I’m off to finish my tea (Yogi Kava Stress Relief—Arrash says I should have this daily), & get ready for bed. Sweet dreams!

Bita

Instagrammable summer swag

Summer is hands down my favorite season & it’s always been, so this collage was super fun to put together.

I’m jumping the gun a little bit…

But having spent the past few weekends in Palm Springs, Miami, & San Diego ( I know, such a rough life ; ) lol ) I feel like summer’s basically here.

It’s pretty warm here in the Bay Area, but definitely not like it was in Miami…

I was dripping sweat after walking 1/2 mile in Miami.

But I loveeee it there. It’s so pretty.

Anyways, these item scream summer—& they’re very “Insta-worthy”.

If you’ve never said that before I don’t believe you ; )

Kidding… Kind of.

Side note: if you sell consumer products definitely consider how your products & / or packaging will look when photographed by an everyday consumer. It might sound silly, but creating product & / or packaging thats “Instagrammable” ( & / or plays to current trends on Instagram ) is a really smart business move because it encourages consumers to snap & share photos of your product, which is basically free marketing for your business. So consider it.

Okay, back to these items… AREN’T THEY SO CUTE??

A pink flamingo looks great in blue water because it POPS! Take a look here: @bikinist.

I love this towel because it reminds me of those really cute Santorini photos I always see on Instagram. It’s very chic, which I love.

We took these cameras to two of my friends’ bachelorette parties ( part of the reason why I’ve been traveling so many weekends ) & they were so much fun. You can take polaroids with each other and even do a flat lay with them ( I know how I sound & I’m okay with it lol )

These cameras are super fun!

I’d much rather eat homemade popsicles than those sugar-filled ones you can find in stores. Honestly, I think homemade popsicles taste better and they can be way more healthy than the store bought ones, so I’m totally game to make my own. Here’s a recipe I love, that’s super quick & easy!

I love these molds because they’re very summer-y.

Which ones your favorite: pineapple or watermelon?

I love tropical plants so this beach towel, to me, is perfect! Plus, I love the round beach towel trend that’s going on right now.

These are so cute & they’re perfect for summer cocktails—or your Instagram ; )

I typically use glass but plastic cups are great when you’re at the pool. I like this one because of its colors. It also comes in a taller style, which is ideal for mixed drinks ; )

Alright, what are you guys getting for summer?

<3,
Bita

Let’s get nutty… A quick & easy breakfast ( or naturally sweet snack! )

HI GUYS!

If you’re following along on Snapchat you already know this is one of my go-tos for breakfast.

I LOVE starting my day with coffee, but not on an empty stomach so I always make a quick & easy breakfast to have with my coffee.

One of my go-to’s are hard boiled eggs, but sometimes I need to mix it up a bit—& this is perfect way to do it!

Lately, I’ve been putting almond butter, bananas, gr8nola, and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice ( not pictured ) on toast & it’s SO delicious. You guys have to try it.

I like gr8nola because the ingredients are clean & simple ( I always check ingredients! )

Here they are, straight from the label:

whole grain oats, honey, organic virgin coconut oil, almonds, sunflower seeds, dried unsweetened coconut, flaxseed meal, sea salt, cinnamon, stevia leaf extract.

So good, right!? & it’s delicious.

P.S. If you prefer, you can of course use peanut butter instead of almond butter. I like both.

I also love that I typically have all these ingredients in the house—makes it easy to have breakfast.

[ My almond butter of choice right now ]

[ I always check ingredients… This one has only two: dry roasted almonds & palm oil. No added sugar! ]

[ YUMMMM… ]

I love having this breakfast because it’s filling ( but still pretty light ), easy to make & naturally sweet.

Sometimes I even make this during the day or at night when I want something sweet, but still healthy.

Okay, what are your go-to’s for breakfast? Let’s hear ’em : )

<3,
Bita

[ My Minty moosh ]

[ gr8nola yumminess! You can find it here. ]

gr8nola + coffee? YES, PLEASE!
