Summertime Smoothies

Ever wondered why you can't get up in the morning and you don't want to stomach a giant breakfast? A simple smoothie is a simple solution to a lasting morning boost.
I love smoothies because I get to decide what goes in and what flavors will satisfy my cravings for the day. Take my word for it: a little experimentation can go a long way. A whole banana, an espresso shot, coconut milk, almond butter; strawberries bananas, blueberries, raspberries; mangos, ice cream, shredded coconut, semi-sweet chocolate really can't go wrong.
Try it. It's worth the risk.

Just The Beginning

Moms always seem to know just what we need. And my mother, well, she knows what I love! I have big dreams for Lavender Wood. And now with the support of my mom, verified and guaranteed by a recent enlightening candle gift, this whole summer will be filled with awesome giveaways and sweet summer posts.

Summer Heat Is Cause For Cool Refreshments

If healthy and happy is what you're looking for, you don't have to go much further. Grapefruits have not only been a great help for those losing weight but they have many other benefits, like curving your hunger, smoothing skin, and boosting metabolism. Head to the Recipe page to check out the instructions for the first recipe of the summer.

A Contribution to Young Artists

As many know, the youth of today is the future of our communities! That's why I volunteer often and participate at many local theater art and music events to remind people how important it is to inspire and encourage young kids to pursue their dreams in the art.

If you're a willing contributor, The Universal Trilogy is a great campaign to donate to. No amount is too small and you always get things in return (like Starbucks gift cards!).

Florality Is Back! (And BIGGER than ever!)

Springtime has ended, but the flowers never really fade from our minds. Flowers inspire and forced our minds to reflect on all the ways nature impacts us. With spring and summer comes good vibes and good news.  Not to mention, The Heart Of A Painter has a new name: Lavender Wood by Florality. Inspired by all the things that remind me of the dreams fabricated from my relentless ambition (Lavender) and of the resilient boundaries that keep my feet embedded in reality (Wood).

I'm so excited for this summer because it includes tons of new inspiration and DIY tutorials, including food recipes and room decor. Not only is Florality coming back to offer you beautiful floral headbands, but there's so many more products being offered too! Take a look:
