WCW : Zoe Kravitz











Our WCW of the week is the lovely Zoe Kravitz!! 
Daughter of the ever so handsome rocker, Lenny Kravitz and everyones Cosby Sweetheart and Style icon, Lisa Bonet!

Zoe is super beautiful.. obviously! But she is our pick because she is more than just looks. She is also very talented. She is an actress, where you can catch her in some great Indie Movies as well as the latest Box Office Hit: Divergent.



And just in case you've been living under a rock... Zoe also takes after her dad and has a band of her own called Lolawolf.  It's an electro- pop band she and her buddies started out in Brooklyn.






Happy Hump Day Lovers!!

5 Tips for A Flat Stomach


It's Crop Top and Bikini Season, and we all want that Flat Tummy... Stat!!


I'm personally the absolute worst when it comes to dieting, but I love healthy/organic eating. I'm always up for a challenge especially when it means quick results! 
        So thats why I'm sharing with you the beautiful Kristina  from "Fully Raw Kristina"  She specializes in Raw Foods and she has tons of really cool recipes available on her Pinterest and Youtube, including: Fully Raw Carrot Cake, Cantaloupe Mint Sorbet, and even Fully Raw Coffee!! Kristina shares with us her tips on achieving a flat stomach in only 5 easy steps.

Click the >>>>> Link to watch Kristina explain the 5 steps listed below.

1) Drink lots of water: FullyRaw Vitamin Infused Lemonade when you first wake up in the AM. Recommended 32-64 oz daily. You can also drink fresh juices! If you need some recommended recipes, check out my Watermelon Juice Secret, Soulshine Juice, or Sunburst Juice here on my channel.

2) Eat FullyRaw Foods: Challenge yourself to 2-3 FullyRaw Meals a Day. Not telling you to go 100% FullyRaw right away... but give it a try. It's much easier and more delicious than you think!

3) Eliminate meat and dairy. The benefits associated with eliminating animal products are HUGE. Eliminating these hormones, bacterias, and fats from your diet can flush your system, giving you a flat belly. Take it to the next level: eliminate gluten. Watch the weight fall off!

4) Do 10 minutes of easy ab workouts like the ones in my video. My favorites are squats, planks, bicycle crunches, and jump roping!

5) Don't eat after 7-8 PM or stop eating 3 hours before bed. Eating FullyRaw is also the daylight diet. Eat when the sun is up and rest when the sun in down. :) 


They do say "you are what you eat" ... What have you been putting into your body?


Fully Raw Coffee!

    Deep Dish Fully Raw Vegan Lasagna!


Cantaloupe Mint Sorbet


Fully Raw Carrot Cake!

The beautiful Kristina Carrillo- Bucaram 
P.S. .. her glow is all natural, make-up free! Due to all the goodness she puts into her body!


Are you guys ready for the challenge???

Good Luck!
