I was just enjoying my time with my family so much) but if you are ever in Austin and want to eat some good Thai we recommend Sway.

We made our lunches, brought fruits and water to stay hydrated.

X Games Austin ‚ô°

My friend and I took a road trip to Austin, TX to go watch the X Games!!

My brother grew up as a skateboard fanatic which led me to grow up going to skateparks with him. So going to see a professional skateboarding competition was something that I always wanted to go to one day.

I  got to see many skateboarders that my brother grew up talking about when we were younger which was really cool.

We took a picture with the Big Air ramp. Can you believe that the tallest drop is 88 feet high?!? Now imagine going down that with a freaking skateboard!!

Me posing with the X of X Games… guys I had to document this moment haha

I was very very excited!

Alexa and I  got to go up this tower.

We were able to see the whole view of the X Games from up top!

I even got to take a selfie with the Big Air while I was up there.

Also we got to watch people practice way up in the air! Which was awesome.

Out of all the competitions that day my favorite by far was the Big Air skateboarding competition.

(In the photo the little black dot in the air  is actually Bob Burnquist who won the Gold Medal in the Big Air competition)

Bob Burnquist is one of three athletes that have competed in every X Games summer competition. He has won the most medals in X Games History  (27 medals)!!

Congrats to him and all the athletes that competed!!

I had such a great time, I would love to go again next year!

with so much love,

Buddha’s Brew Kombucha ‚ô°

11303570_967915216598010_1719762381_n

People think that being healthy means you have to make yourself eat and drink things that are not as tasty but that is definitely far from the truth.¬†I know I used to think that way but ¬†have explored and found products & recipes¬†that are far better in taste and are doing great benefits for my health. For example my favorite¬†Buddha’s Brew Kombucha.

¬†Kombucha is a fermented beverage that carries bacterias and probiotics. I know you’re thinking bacteria?? ¬†Yes!!! but it is the bacteria that is good for you. (Not all bacterias are bad).

Kombucha Benefits-¬†improves digestion, skin and hair, weight loss, increases energy, helps immune support, and¬†detoxification. (These are few examples of¬†many kombucha’s benefits)

11292792_967915266598005_682016397_n

I have tried most of Buddha’s Brews beverages and have loved every single one of them.

Buddha’s Brew first started selling their products at local Farmers Markets in Austin, TX¬†and are now selling locally in Texas and outside of Texas in Louisiana, Oklahoma, Mississippi, and Arkansas.

For more information about locations and¬†on¬†Buddha’s Brew check out their website here-¬†http://www.buddhasbrew.com/

If you’re looking for a cool, fresh,¬†delicious, and healthy beverage this summer definitely grab a Buddha’s Brew.

cheers to us for enjoying being healthy ♡

with so much love,
