Post GFAF Expo (NJ) Summary with some amazing Gluten Free FINDS!

Well this weekend was AWESOME!  Saturday we had my favorite event of the year, yes I'm not even exaggerating as someone that's both Gluten & Dairy Free this is the event I look forward to every year because of all the delicious food I can eat!  I'm super excited to have made some great connections at the expo.  I even received some items to write reviews about which is awesome!  It was also a great opportunity to meet new Gluten Free Friends in the area!

By attending the event I found 5 great new brands I wasn't that familiar with!

Some of my favorite new brands I was only a little familiar with before the event but now am obsessed with are:  SweetNote Bagels (I love their pumpkin bagels)...half of my bagels I got from the event are already gone...next year i'll be buying a truckload of bagels thank you...they're THAT good!
Check them out at www.SweetNoteBakery.com

I found a delicious brownie made from black beans with maple syrup as their sweetener so I'm all about them!  Love Pure Genius because how healthy and delicious their products are it is PURE Genius!  They also make blondes!  www.PureGeniusProvisions.com

Another great brand I really enjoyed learning more about was Sweet Megan, I love their cake pops with cookie dough!  www.GlutenFreeSweetMegan.com

I'm sort of obsessed with a company I wasn't even that aware of before the event:  Natural Contents Kitchen!
I love their lemony Squash cupcakes!  They're definitely addictive and delicious!
Check them out at www.NaturalContents.com

I also found a great drink at the event:  Banana Coconut Water by Jax Coco!  This stuff is INCREDIBLE!! www.Jaxcoco.com

And of course we must not forget Jennifer's Way Bakery which I took a picture with Jennifer so make sure you're following me on Periscope/Twitter at TravelLaughLove, and on Instagram at GlutenFreeTourNYC to see that picture and follow all my gluten free fabulous adventures!

GFAF Expo + Wellness Lounge

Super excited to be attending the GF AF Expo this weekend with a PLAN...yes I said it so you can all hold me accountable!  Normally I just waver around the entire incredibly awesome Expo full of over 100 vendors just meeting people and getting extra delicious yummy GF food but this year I'm working on gaining more partnerships and building better relationships with Gluten Free and healthy living brands so I can improve my gluten free tours and get my gluten free coaching off the ground FINALLY!  I just finished being the assistant for The Wellness Lounge where I did all the social media and being the ongoing support for all vendors until the day of the event.  The event went amazingly!  I love event planning!  Back to the GFAF Expo, I'd love to meet up with anyone that's reading my blog or if you have a favorite vendor that'll be there feel free to post their name below!  <3 guys="" love="" next="" p="" post="" the="" until="" you="">

CDF's and feeling good!

Hey everyone!

I decided I am going to try to post on this blog every week so I can keep better track of my life and my current CDF (Core-Desired-Feelings) which totally are feeling supported, accomplished, happy, and relaxed.  What are yours?  Feel free to leave them in the comments section!  I am definitely feeling very much supported by watching and interacting on periscope esp. Courtney Johnston's scopes!  I just added my opt-in so I'm feeling somewhat accomplished as I've been looking up ways to do it for months and now I finally did it even though its not going to go straight to mail chimp like I had wanted...better done than not!  I am very happy to have this freedom in my life even though I could definitely use a part time job (volunteer coordinator, event planning/social media, or tutor/nanny) if anyone knows of something up to 25 or so hrs a week let me know!  I am buying notebooks this week so I can start feeling much more relaxed and start being more organized and do journaling in the mornings!  I can't wait to hear all of your CDF's!  Make sure you're following me on periscope at CleanLiving!

New Home and back to BLOGGING

I'm returning to blogging to chronicle my brand new beginning moving into our FOREVER HOME in Wood-Ridge, NJ!  We just moved in on Sunday August 2nd 2015!  And we're the only Blue Townhouse currently in the community!  Love the uniqueness!  I am starting this blog as a way to connect with myself and my audience and bring about more happiness because we all deserve it!  I am going to start this blog as a collective experience capturing my daily gratitude lists, random acts of kindness, goals for accountability, and more!  
Today I will start by making a gratitude list of 10 things:  1. Having a loving hubby that truly gets me, 2. Having the ONLY blue townhouse in the community (Did I mention Blue is my favorite color?!?), 3.  Having a super comfy navy blue couch, 4. Finding Gluten Free Honeynut Cheerios, 5. Watching GMA in the morning and then Kelly & Michael, 6. My abundance of scarves, 7. My loving sisters, 8. Beautiful bay window and deck to work from, 9. Having developed my own company (Gluten Free Tours in NYC), and 10. My flexibility and overall freedom! 

Today I will be focusing on fixing my website and studying for my upcoming exam to become a certified Tour Guide!  Big things ahead...what are you most excited about this week?  

Look out for my next post coming up today!  I will be doing weekly posts but today you get 2!

Trip to CA in 1 day!

Hey everyone!  I'm so excited tomorrow I'm leaving for a trip to California (I've never been) and I'm visiting LA & San Diego...Already have so many great sights picked out to see!  We're visiting for my 30th birthday!  We'll be in each area around a week!  I'll let you all know how it was and show some pictures!

Essential Oil 101

I am sure many of you have heard of Essential Oils either online or when you go into a Health Foods Store.  But what exactly are they and why are some so cheap and others so EXPENSIVE! 
Essential Oils are Non water-based phytochemicals made up of volatile aromatic compounds.  Although they are fat soluble, they do not include fatty lipids or acids found in vegetable and animal oils. Essential oils are very clean, almost crisp, to the touch and are immediately absorbed by the skin. Pure, unadulterated essential oils are translucent and range in color from crystal clear to deep blue.
You can use Essential Oils both :  A-Aromatically (in a diffuser or a drop on your hand and cupping it to inhale) Think Diffuser, T-Topically (put them on your reflexology points and get a great benefit)
The differences between Essential Oils you find in stores that are very cheap are things:  Chemicals & Fillers!  If you find really cheap Essential Oils more than likely they are not really 100% pure as they claim.  The brand I recommend because of consistent purity and reliability is DoTERRA!  DoTERRA Essential Oils even have some Essential Oils that can be ingested because it is that pure. 
¢  Essential Oils are your way to take care of you and your families Health Concerns without going to Antibiotics!  Here are some easy ways you can use DoTERRA Essential Oils in your household:   Headaches- PastTense
¢  Fever- Peppermint Essential Oil
¢  Digestive Issues- Digestzen
¢  Joint pain/Muscle Aches- Deep Blue
¢  Sunburn- Lavender, Peppermint, Frankincense, and Melaleuca
¢  Immunity- OnGuard
¢  Sinus Issues- Melaleuca
¢  Allergies- Breathe
¢  Detox- Zendocrine
¢  Weight Loss- Slim & Sassy

If you’re interested in purchasing any of these Essential Oils go to:  http://doterra.myvoffice.com/getthathealthyfeeling/   If you want to buy them at Wholesale or make an additional income by sharing the amazing benefits of Essential Oils with your Friends & Family contact me for more info!

1st Gluten Free Tour

Hey everyone!  Sorry its been so long since my last post...I've been unmotivated to write in this blog since I'm already writing in my 3 facebook business pages!  Well anyways I had my 1st Gluten Free Tour on Monday April 8th!  It was so fabulous!  We met at The Union Square Whole Foods and the rest is magic!  We took a total of 2 buses and went to a bunch of restaurants, bakeries, and Gluten Free shops!  I even realized me and the tour attendees were connected someway.  Its funny what a small world we live in! 

It was definitely one of the best days I've had in awhile. 

What are you doing to enjoy the sunshine?
