Mondaze in Ann Arbor, Michigan

A big part of Mondaze is Motivation, Mindfulness, & maintaining a Meatless diet

#TGIM Thank G-d It’s Monday – well yesterday was the first time i ever came across the abrev #TGIM – very bizarre but i went with the notion and continued to follow through with my version of Mondaze.

Mindful Monday was a sweet sweet success yesterday. Waking up on Monday Mornings I turn quickly to “snooze” which I think could be re branded as a time dedicated to meditation. I do not use my “snooze” to just roll my eyes back into my head & dream land but a moment of clarity.
Meditation Music makes the end of your day a sweet send off

Music of the day : Thomas Jack Vol 4 Tropical House

Getting super pumped up to go see him preform live in Chicago in February at The Mid. If you want to join me purchase your tickets here

Signing up for not one but TWO classes at The Barre Code in Ann Arbor : they have two fabulously convenient locations on is right downtown Ann Arbor on E Liberty between Maynard St & Thompson Street and the second is off Plymouth Road. The owner of The Barre Code Adri is a honey and i love supporting local startups & women ! #Girlpower – you don’t see too many men around The Barre Code but don’t let that stop ya felllas !

    Meatless Diet

Within the first thirty minutes of being awake and up & moving I like to have a piece of fruit to rev up my metabolism. Typically a Granny Smith Green Apple or Bartlett Pear.

Driving to Ann Arbor and getting off at Main Street I can’t help myself but stop into Mighty Good Coffee

Moving forward to lunch I walked over to my new go-to loving lunch spot Salads Up for a Mix It Up Salad filled with edamame, chic peas, cucumbers , red peppers, avocado , olives and broccoli with a spicy shiracha dressing! Dank.

Lady J ( maybe you remember her from the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Videos ) whipped me up some mouth watering orgasmic roasted Brussels sprouts for dinner along with our favorite breakfast for dinner omelet while i took on my Mondaze Motion hard.

Mondaze are the perfect day to take your tasks head on >>>> this weeks mondaze motion was to figure out that darn crock pot that is taking up so much space in our kitchen ! One of my new favorite social networking sites Yummly.Com allows amateur and professional chefs alike share recipes in a YUMMY way ! Check out my Yummly Collection of #1307Daily Recipes . FRENCH ONION SOUP you are my b*tch and i’m making you mine ! tipping this off was to caramelize onions! wpid-snapchat-3594131855462917539.jpg

Today I felt like rocking some totally betchin’  Fall Fashion : Head to Toe Let’s go !!

Fedorable Hat that was purchased at a local Ann Arbor store on E.Liberty Street – Orchid Lane

Winter Jacket – Moncler – cheers to the enchanted journey we’ll spend day in and day out for next 5 months. Investing in a winter coat is one of the

Rabbit Fur Vest – astounding  layering piece that brings any outfit to the next level !

Basic Long Sleeve Top – stock up + pile on the quintessential basic long sleeve. Find a basic Betch top + buy 5 of them ( black, white, grey, brown, navy ) & change it up each and everyday. Makes your mornings much more effortless!

Gucci Belt –  committing yourself to Kayne’s work out plan means you jeans are gonna start to get looser …. time to slap on that belt !!  It is majorly encouraging when you have to go to + get a new hole put into your staple belt ! Wearing a belt makes you look that much more sophisticated and put together.

Classic Blue Jeans – that are made of real denim –  time to toss those pajama jeans and jeggings + go back to real denim (for those of you who ever chose to ditch it in the first place).  Featured here is a pair of Rag & Bone!

Step into your Fall Boots – cameo causal boots add a sharp edge to the Fall Uniform !

instagram-256One of my favorite new follows on Instagram is @CoffeeNClothes – its a person who is based out  Soho + Brooklyn  in New York! as an avid coffee drinker i feel compelled to #CoffeeNclothes  on my @Tr3ndey account whenever i’m rockin’ a good gettup !

About a week ago I was at a Pop-Up Henna Shop in Birmingham, Michigan. I got this show-stopping Henna Tat ! Maybe CoffeNClothes will feature me on their page!

Located in The Nichols Arboretum , Ann Arbor, MI  123 acres of pure nature. I highly recommend a walk/run adventure in this sacred space. What will you find here is that nature runs far and wide , a variety of areas for resting and relaxing, stone steps and  people playing frisbee.

Photo’d an arm band of flash tats and the front side of the FTC Snapback. I was attached to the FTC shop on Haight – cuz i like to put on for my city – DETROIT.

Lean & Green  #Motivation Monday

Lean & Green #Motivation Monday

On the right : Cheers! to a Motivation Monday  with a green drink that was pressed from a central fugal juicer at the GlassBox Coffee Shop on South University, Ann Arbor, MI.  Going to this shop right when it opens in the morning is important to me because the juicer should be the least contaminated by other ingredients ( I have an oral sensitivity to certain fruits & vegetables) .

Spotted : arrow flash tats 

The flash tats featured in the photos above lasted for about a week more or less depending on the placement.

IE. when on the hands they tend to come off more quickly due to hand washing and lotion.

FlashTats are bright and cheerful – they maintain the sparkling gold , silver or bold black for quite a few days!

FlashTats spark a curiosity –  people get to talking – what are those ? where are they from? how can i get them? what did you say they were called again? who wears these besides you?

FlashTats are FUN ! they are the perfect addition to anytime you hangout with friends , are hosting/ attending a pre-game or just simply for a more FABULOUS DAY!

Rockin’ Ramen

ra

Keizo Shimamoto is reinventing the happy meal with his Ramen Burger and new Ramen Fries.

Unlike the Ramen Burgerthe Ramen Fries are double fried in the deep fryer – ! Contrary to popular belief, the Ramen Burger Bun is NOT FRIED! 

The ramen king <<< Keizo Shimamoto >>> is using his noodle in the kitchen. He’s crafted a soon-to-be launched fried chicken ramen burger and is working to perfect a ramen churro.

LOOK OUT STOMACH’S !!!  NOM NOM NOM

FYI : Ramen Noodles

 

Ramen Noodles are becoming increasingly popular in the United States. Originating as an extremely popular dish in Japan, this trend is crossing the oceans and Ramen Noodle Bars are popping up around the corner from YOU !

The rise of Ramen Noodles may single handly be contributed to the Uki Family who migrated to the US a little over 30 years ago! Their company SUN NOODLE is the top notch brand of Noodle makers!

 

Two Ramen Bars in downtown Ann Arbor are both located on E.Liberty Street not too far away from one another.

> Slurping Turtle which is between State Street & Maynard Street on E Liberty

> Tomukun Noodle Bar which is between Maynard Street & Thompson Street on E.Liberty

 

Slurp On !
