Why did I ever wear low rise jeans: MY NEW FAVORITES + jeans for your body type

Honestly though.

Why did I ever put myself through wearing low rise jeans? I think YES they look good on some people, like really good. But me, not so much, my body isn't a low rise jean body (whatever that means) and I realize now as I sit here typing with my jeans up near by bra line, how good it feels to relax my stomach and just...BE.


In my high-rise ultra flattering jeans. 

Nothing better. Sucks you in, and you don't need to worry about your butt crack or thong hanging out (even though in High School I think that was the point sometimes...LOL.

So I wanted to share some of my tried and true high-rise jean favorites, so that you can save yourself the pain of trying to search and search and then overspend on your denim.


You can shop my new favorite high-waisted jeans here (from DL1961 Denim) and the rest of my look:

Finding Jeans for Your Body Type:

For me, I am more apple shaped (sexy I know) So, for apple shapes, your best rise of jeans is a higher waisted denim style that sits just at your natural waist. This style of jean helps me to visually focus on the legs,, while helping to cinch in that tummy.

If you're curvy all over with a smaller waist, you can wear a high-rise jean to showcase your booty and waist. To do this, look for a rise from 10" to 13" that hits above your natural waist. Then you can werk it all you want babes.

For boyish body types: your best in a distressed pair of low rise jeans, or for a crisp pair for work, any slim leg will work on you, so shop around to fill out your denim wardrobe and you'll be prepared for all occasions.

Shorter women (of any shape) can get a flattering effect by choosing jeans with a medium or slightly higher waistband. If you're a curvy petite, you'll look best in the higher mid-rise jeans.

My Grocery List (all items I get sent directly to my door - vegan + healthy)


So excited to share this one with you! My grocery list from Thrive Market. I have been using Thrive Market for the past year or so, and have LOVED the whole experience. I love them for a few reasons:

They are all about giving back: Each time you check out you have the ability to donate to a family in need. There is NOTHING easier than that. I always look for ways to give back, and Thrive is that way. 

They work with nonprofit partners like Feeding America to distribute free memberships to the families and individuals they serve. They also allow people to apply for a free membership right on Thrive Market. Additionally, they offer custom educational content to our Thrive Gives members, from shopping lists to recipes to a 22-part video course about how to live healthy on a budget. Learn More

It's delivered straight to your door, in really thoughtful packaging: I order my Apple Cider Vinegar from Thrive, and the first time I was a little nervous about the whole thing because there couldn't be a smellier liquid. Period. So when it arrived I was so grateful that the packaging was super thoughtful, it was wrapped up in a recyclable package, with no possibility of breaking or leaking. The box is brightly colored, beautiful and makes you happy when you see it. It really is, the little things.

I don't need to leave my house to get what I need: 'Nuff said, hehe.

Their prices are 50% off retail prices: Oh yes, and they do the price comparison for you. They are all about making sure that everyone can eat well, and so they cut out the middle man so everyone can eat healthy.

It has brands that I know about or need to know: I have found so many great brands on Thrive, that I would have never known about before! They really vet everyone so that you can be sure the brand is thoughtful and the product is great

It's EFFICIENT: I just use my favorites list and order what I need super quickly. It comes to my door a few days later. 

You can shop by diet (and it's all Non-GMO): I am vegan, and really tend to try to eat as well as possible, so there is the options to shop by diet. Keto, Vegan, Paleo...they have everything you need making it really easy to follow your diet. 


So I am so excited that they are working with us through The Almost 30 Podcast, and that we have the ability to share a discount code with you, as well as the ability to shop our favorites! Check out my list below, and click the button to get a discount on your first order (which is already a huge savings!)


For a great resource to learn more, you can also check out the Thrive Market CEO on Rich Roll's Podcast. This was when I first heard about Thrive and immediately fell in love with the concept and his ideals.

Happy to share this with you. Anything I missed on the list?

When you need a plant based low sugar reset: Splendid Spoon

Hi baes:

How are you? Hope all is well :)

I don't know about you, but lately I have sort of been falling back into negative habits around eating and body image and it's really bumming me out. I just haven't been putting myself first therefore the decisions I am making around eating and self care have fallen by the wayside and it's just a bummer.

So I needed a motivation, and I am pretty pumped to start fresh, and to seriously reset and establish a confidence in myself that I can nourish my body and not be so obsessive about my food.


But, to get myself back my favorite way is to prepare myself and my fridge with healthy nourishing foods. One of my favorite ways in the colder months especially, to feel light, and be kind to my body and digestion is through Splendid Spoon.

Splendid Spoon is a meal delivery service that combines the power of plants, the science of slow cooking & nutrient bioavailability and the proven health benefits of intermittent fasting to design a formula that easily fits into your daily life. Their plans are customizable, and suitable for those on an elimination program, a sugar detox, or paleo diet. Of course too, it's suitable for vegan and vegetarians. 

They have a few different plans, but it's mainly smoothie, and thick soup or bowl based. So you're really helping to reset your digestion and nourish yourself with liquid focused foods.

Right now I incorporate it in once a month as a digestive reset, and way to nourish my body through drinkable vegetables and hearty soups. If I want to snack or eat on it, too, I will, but I find that I am really full my following their eating plan. It feels SO good and you feel REALLY full after each meal. 


Why I love it:

It’s affordable: $135 for the 5 days package and plus you get my discount. That's NOTHING for meal delivery I swear!

You feel nourished: Truly. There's nothing more nourishing than a thick plant based soup!

It’s Ayurvedic: Yes the warming soups are so good to fuel your digestive fire. 

It gives my digestive system a break: Having soups and liquid based nourishment gives your body time to completely reset.

I get all my veggies in: They are obsessed with making sure you get veggies in. With their plan you get plenty.
