Good HUES-Day: Back to Cool

Traffic has gotten progressively worse (ugh!) the past week and that usually means one thing-- the kiddies are back to school! While I am past my school years and spend my days at the office rather than hitting the textbooks, I still look forward to shopping for some new fall 'wears' and splurging on relevant "back to school" items for myself. Here's what's topping my very adult "back to cool" list:

1. PENCIL POUCH: Use it as it's intended purpose or stash your lip products in it-- whatever floats your boat! I am eyeballing this super cute pencil pouch from Kate Spade NY

2. MULTI-TASKER: I never never need an excuse to buy new makeup, but beauty items that serve multiple purposes are perfect for on-the-go. This double-sided Beauty On-the-Glow Blush & Illuminator from Wander Beauty is totally on my wishlist!

3. PRETTY PLANNER: Even if I don't have THAT much going into it, planners make me feel more busy than I am and also super organized. I just picked up this pretty gold foil Ringleader Agenda from Ban.Do-- love it!

4. TRENDY BACKPACK: I am ecstatic that the '90s backpacks are back 'in'-- I don't need one for school but that doesn't mean I won't be needing one for everything else! Love the tassels on this one from Forever 21!

5. CUTE LAPTOP SLEEVE: How fun is this bold colored zig zag print from Vera Bradley (on sale!)? My boring laptop could use a little pizzazz!


Tell me, do you do any "back to cool/school" shopping for yourself still?

There's No Place Like Home

Tee: The Home T (c/o) | Shorts: American Eagle Outfitters | | Lips: Sara Happ One Luxe Gloss in Nude | Hat: Billabong | Jewelry: Gorjana

I am truly grateful to have had the chance to grow up in Southern California, not far from the busy streets of  Los Angeles, beaches and easy weekend escapes up to the mountains, or out to the desert. There's always something going on out here and so much to do. I've considered moving across the country before but I knew it wouldn't be long before I came back home. I consider myself a California girl through and through, and  even with the bad traffic, high standard of living and sometimes way too-hot days, there really is no place like home.
What better way to share my Cali pride than by wearing it?

You may even have seen these cool tees around the blogoshere or maybe you caught The Home T recently on "Shark Tank"! The founder created the line after moving to bustling New York City from his home in North Carolina. He created a tee for himself and soon had others requesting similar shirts to share their home state pride-- thus a business was born.

Not only has the company been killing it with their line of awesome state tees, they give back as well. The Home T donates a minimum of 10% profits to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society in an effort to help fund research for this damaging autoimmune disease. 

To learn more and to get your hands on your own tee (tanks, hoodies, home decor also available!), visit The Home T website.

Your turn, what do you love most about your home state?

Top 5 A Good Hue Green Juice & Smoothie Recipes

It's been awhile since I've shared a juice or smoothie recipe and asI've been getting back into green juices and smoothies for the past few weeks I thought it would be fitting to share a few of my favorite green juice and smoothie recipes I have posted on A Good Hue.

With numerous BBQ's, birthdays, office snacks, vacations and weekend trips, I haven't been eating the healthiest this summer. With my breakfast smoothies, I always try to pack in a little extra spinach or other types of greens to make the most of them... it it makes me feel a little bit better about what goes into my body, that works for me! Here's my top 5 favorites:

All the fruits, veggies and super foods in my Get Gorgeous Green Juice serve a purpose—they are all filled with nutrients, vitamins, antioxidants and a whole lot of goodness that provide beauty benefits for skin, hair and more. This juice tastes fresh, earthy, sweet and slightly minty from the parsley and is such a refreshing and healthy drink for summer. Don't have a juicer? Just blend all these ingredients up with water for a quick smoothie! Click the link above to get the full recipe and all the deets on the good-for-you ingredients.

The Green Detox Smoothie is perfect for those times when you feel like you've overdone it on the junk food. Filled with super foods such as chia, antioxidant-rich berries and plenty of spinach, you can get your healthy habits back on track. This thick, hearty smoothie makes a healthy breakfast or meal replacement.

If the green detox smoothie is a bit too much for you, go back to the basics with this amped up version of a strawberry banana smoothie. With added ingredients like spinach, carrots and chia it will give you that just-right healthy dose of green without being too much. Trust me, you won't even know those veggies are there,

If you're looking for a super sweet juice this is not the one for you, especially if you're not a kale fan, I call this one the Mean Green Monster because well, it's mean and it's chock full of green goodness. Don't be scared though, he won't bite... hard.

In all seriousness, while this one is intense on the green, it's still amazing and so good for you. Definitely one to try!

If the Mean Green Monster is just too mean for you then this one may be more up your alley. The Garden Variety Juice is one of those juices that has everything but the kitchen sink in it-- have some extra lettuce laying around? An apple? Throw it in the juice. Leftover chard or even a zucchini you need to use up? Juice it up! This one is great because you can work off my base recipe and then add in or tweak it based on what you have on hand.
