One of my favorite foods is Greek yogurt. I love to turn it into a meal by dressing it up with all sorts of yummy toppings, almost like an ice cream sundae!
This bowl consisted of:
- One 6oz Fage Total (full-fat) Greek strained yogurt
- One Anjou pear, diced
- Organic dried strawberries
- Raw slivered almonds
- Dry roasted macadamia nuts
- Unsweetened coconut flakes
- Drizzle of agave nectar
Water in my cup , if you’re wondering.
SO GOOD! If you’ve never tried full-fat Greek yogurt, try some! Soon! It’s amazing.
A huge congrats to Averie for her mention in the Fox News article: Bloggers Have More Influence on Purchases Than Celebrities, Study Says written by Hollie McKay. Excellent article! I know personally that my purchases are influenced by many blogs that I visit; I have gotten so many ideas and inspirations from them, but honestly, have rarely been tempted to buy something just because a celebrity endorses it. Probably because I know that they are just a paid spokesperson and more than likely don’t use the product or service themselves. Bloggers tend to showcase things that they actually like and would buy. Real life, not phony, detached-from-reality endorsements. I’m definitely not a bandwagon-hopper. If I don’t like something, I will not personally use it or participate just because it’s trendy. And I think most blogs that I visit feel the same way, but yeah, I can spot a blogger making an empty-hearted, uninterested promotion from a mile away. If you are blogging about your real life, it’s important to actually be who you are, not what some sponsor wants you to be. I’m all for capitalism and monetizing your efforts, but personally, I believe a personal blog should be, you know, personal and genuine. Not like a staged reality TV show, but a sensible balance. Basically: Don’t be a sellout and change your blog’s trajectory just to make it profitable, haha. Trust me, you can make loads of $$$$ just being who you are, living your life. And that’s where it’s at: Reality blogging with a sense of style and taste.
Do you prefer personal blogs or impersonal blogs? I’d say that I visit and subscribe to more personal blogs than impersonal, but I like both equally as they usually have completely different subjects and content. If I really had to choose, I think I would say I often enjoy reading personal, real life blogs more than impersonal ones. Real life blogs are sort of like ongoing stories that never end! Well, eventually it will end, we all expire, LOL.
Speaking of expiration… gotta go clean out the fridge!
