1. Lindt’s A Touch of Sea Salt Bar
Incase you didn’t know, I’m on a dessert-free diet this week and next since I’ll be heading to the Caribbean in just a week. Anyone who knows me knows that this is no easy peasy task. When a beach vacation calls, I’m all about shedding those extra pounds around my tummy. Now let’s talk chocolate! Since I don’t really think of DARK chocolate as dessert, but rather a super healthy treat with antioxidants, I’m treating myself to 1 square of Lindt Sea Salt daily. My enlightenment about this particular chocolate bar grew when I first read about it on my blogger friend’s (Khushboo) website, a London native living in Mumbai. Khushboo has proclaimed her love for Lindt’s Sea Salt bar enough times (here) that she had me intrigued. What treat could be this tasty and good for you? Certainly NOT a cupcake! ~ $3.50 a bar @ most gourmet grocery stores or ~ $4 @ Lindt
2. Larabar UBER
The folks at Larabar have been so incredibly sweet to me by sending me samples of their new Larabar flavors, but unfortunately I didn’t quite enjoy the “original” Larabars due to their texture and aftertaste. Recently though, Larabar sent me their new UBER Larabar, and I can honestly say I really enjoyed them. The Uber consists of a sweet and salty combination, loaded with nuts which contribute to their high amounts of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats… great for breakfast. My favorites were the Banana Foster and Apple Turnover. Each Larabar contains no more than 9 ingredients, they are all natural, and mighty delicious. ~ gift from Larabar
3. French Sleeve T-Shirt @ Zara (purchased in royal blue)
I have become Zara crazy these past few months. I spotted this adorable t-shirt which appears more like a dress on my 5’2” frame – loved the color and the golden zip in the back. There are many ways of wearing this dress:
a. black tights, boots/maryjanes
b. black ankle leggings, black ballet flats
c. no tights, just nude heels for a classy look, or just flip flops for a more casual look
And it comes in at a very affordable ~ $20 @ Zara
