Ready for some face action with this #parabenfree , #sulfatefree and #crueltyfree biocellulose face mask w/ hyaluronic acid + plant peptides by @acurebeauty I bought at @target during my recent trip. My face needs a bit of a hydration boost. It’s dry because of the ac and wind, but also with more sunlight as it is gradually getting warmer on the island. . . . . #needtowearsunscreen #melsblisscuracao #facemask #acurebeauty #hydratedskin

10 year challenge. Still going strong [since 2000] ❤️. Different lifestyle tho, much healthier. A bit more wrinkles and grey hair, a different kind of hair shade and thank God for those microbladed brows 😂. Also....Aiden was but 4 years old 🙈. He was such a cute kindergartner ❤️. Went down memory lane last night looking for a [this] photo 10 years back. So much fun! . . . #10yearchallenge #melsblisscuracao #growingwisernotolder #ageisjustanumber

Lovely creamier than cream veggie soup I just #pimptested for PIMP boss Talia from @partyinmyplants . . What a way to start our Monday.

That special moment at around 6am when you get to celebrate your [still hot and hip] mom’s @marthadepaulo birthday - 69!!! - with her again. . . Her birthday breakfast wish? 🍵🍵🍵 😆. So I made her a #homemade #cashewmilkmatchalatte ❤️. She deserves nothing but the best. All the dishes are leftovers (mostly clean 🤷🏻‍♀️) from last night’s cookout. #messykitchen is a reality in our life during breakfast and dinner time 👩🏻‍🍳. . . I forgot to get her a birthday card. She said this was way better 🤩. . . Next stop is celebrating it at her fave local foodie spot @numbertencuracao with friends and family 🙌🏼.

These #adaptogenic powders by @sunpotion are my potent hormone balance helpers 🙏🏼. All ordered via @amazon .. . #pinepollen : “Also known as a potent aphrodisiac, it is a mega source of bioavailable vitamins + minerals and a very energizing adaptogen.” - @helloglowblog .. . #ashwagandha : “The easer of anxiety, depression and sleep issues. Ashwaganda has immuno-modulating effects that boost and regulate the immune system and lower cortisol levels.”- @foodmatters .. . #mucunapruriens : “Used to balance the nervous, reproductive and digestive systems, one of the best reproductive tonics for men and women as it supports normal fertility, healthy sperm and bolsters libido.” - @helloglowblog .. . #cordyceps : “Funguses with antioxidant properties include Reishi, Shiitake, and Maitake mushrooms. Each have adaptogenic, anti-tumor, and immune enhancing properties. Add a scoop of Cordycep powder to your smoothies.” - @foodmatters .. . #heshouwu : “Has longevity, anti-aging and beauty benefits. Builds healthy blood, nourishes the reproductive organs and increases sex drive.” - @helloglowblog .. . “Many people take adaptogens almost every day, while others will take them several times a day based on their needs (check with a professional for guidance about what’s right for you). Gaia does recommend that you take a day off from your adaptogens each week; if you’re using them for more than six weeks, to also take a full week off; and if you’re using them for six months, to take a full month off. (These little breaks are said to let the herbs really take effect in your system). Adaptogens are powerful, but slow-acting, so it can take up to a few weeks to notice a difference.” - @iamwellandgood . . . . #sunpotion #wellandgood #melsblisscuracao #helloglow #adaptogens #wellness #holisticremedies #hormonebalance #alchemy

Happy when your fave to-go-to foodie spot is open again after being closed during the holidays and the first day of school has started to get our cuppa [golden and beet latte]. . .

These #vegan Matcha Tahini Oat Bars by @mylklabs are so fine! They melt like crazy tho in our tropical climate...and it’s not even that hot at the moment. . . Need to cut them up in bars, keep them stored in the freezer and take out one, two, three, four... 😆 at a time to prevent a total melt down. . . These bars are super easy to make and don’t take all that much time, apart from the freezing time.

Elevated matcha latte every mornin’ and today paired with this Golden Hot Chocolate Oatmeal. Recipe by @missmarzipancom and posted on @mindbodygreen . The busy season is over and I am ready to test all those recipes I gathered. Excited much! . . It served us more than 2 portions and I also added a banana for kicks. Drizzled some maple syrup on top and well, it was really, really tasty. . . Make yours here 👉🏼: https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/golden-milk-hot-chocolate-oatmeal-recipe-miss-marzipan . PS: Locally I buy my culinary @carringtonfarms matcha powder at @vreugdenhilcw This is a very affordable brand and perfect for cooking, smoothies and lattes. Normally I order the @kenkotea Organic Culinary Grade Matcha Powder via @amazon when I travel to the US and have it shipped to the hotel I stay in. The color is so bright green. . . When not available [in stock] I use the @wildfoodsco green tea matcha powder [order it via @amazon as well]. As this is a ceremonial economy grade matcha powder and thus of a higher quality, it’s more expensive. . . . . . . #wholesomebreakfast #vegan #matchalatte #melsblisscuracao #missmarzipan #mindbodygreen

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Filled Dates on a Wednesday night, just because. They are Om Nom Nom. . . I used 8 pitted medjool dates, filled them up with unsweetened and unsalted peanut butter [almond butter would also be really good!] and put them in the freezer to harden up a bit. . . Meanwhile melt dark chocolate [I used about half of a chocolate bar] au bain marie [boil water, turn off heat and put chocolate in a metal bowl, not touching the water, and stir until completely molten] and dipped in the medjool dates until completely covered in chocolate. . . I topped them with ground up pistachios, goji berries and coconut chips. Let harden up in the freezer and enjoy. . . For the record, we all ate one each as they are so rich. Leftovers are for tomorrowssssssss 🙌🏼. . . . . . #chocolatecovereddates #melsblisscuracao #chocolatebites #melsblisscuracao #superfoodbites #dessert #sweettreats

My first go at making these [oven baked] Blue Majik #vegan donuts. The result wasn’t perfect, but does look pretty funky. Recipe by @greenhousejuice . . My first lesson when getting started? Don’t forget to spray the donut mold and have the patience to let them cool off completely so they don’t break 🤷🏻‍♀️. . . Since they’re oven baked, they have a cake-like consistency. I thought they tasted really nice and completely different from the donuts I used to eat! . Will start experimenting with other found recipes. Excited 🙌🏼. . .

“Girl Wash Your Face” by @msrachelhollis is one of my most recent motivational book scores. . . “Stop Believing the Lies About Who You Are So You Can Become Who You Are Meant to Be” is a powerful enough quote to be drawn to.
