  • Wkd jaunt ready...plus these Céline sandals that KEEP giving. I found these on @therealreal when I first started shopping there. A RARE find...but all I gotta say is vigilance pays off lol #oldceline [HAPPY WKD! What are u all up to?]
  • Last night at a party I was asked a really good question (one that many of u ask me). How do you work in digital and maintain a healthy relationship to yourself? Answer: it’s HARD AF. Over the yrs I’ve developed rules to keep myself in line: 
1. Phone curfew at 9PM every night - ie I don’t use my phone until the next AM
2. Monitor screen time using app built into iPhone - it’s scary at one point I was on my phone 10+ hrs a day. Now I’m down to 3-4
3. Dedicate 1 hr every day to Instagram and don’t go over. 
4. One day a week, leave my phone at home and go out. It’s FUN! And gives me so much peace of mind

It’s no secret we are all addicted to our phones (esp when our work rely on it) but we can take small steps to TAKE BACK our dominion over our lives and time.

How do you keep your balance? #Vanessawantstoknow
  • While on silent retreat we ate something v similar to this every day: Overnight Turmeric Rose Oats! Recipe Below: 
1 cup gluten free rolled oats
2 cups water for soaking 
1.5 cup plant based mylk 
2 dried figs diced (or any dry fruit works) 
1 TBSP dried rose petals 
1 cardamom pod crushed  1 tsp turmeric (I recc @diasporaco) 
Dash of black pepper 
Dash of cinnamon 
Technique:

1. First soak oats overnight in water, then drain in AM (this is to improve digestion + nutrient bioavailability; you can skip this step but I’ve noticed it makes a difference for me)
2. Add plant mylk + all ingred and soak for another day (or at least 5 hrs)  PLACE IN FRIDGE
1. When ready, garnish with fruit, seeds, nut butters (whatever you dance!) 2-3 servings
  • Waiting for summer like....basically extending my love for all things Vitamin C to my clothes. Although I love me a full white lewk, an ORANGE one is sorta next level. THOUGHTS?? 🍊🍑🥭 #VanessaWantsToKnow
  • One of my all time fave mini exercises - overhead jazz hands! This releases tension from ‘text claw’, helps move lymph, + improves circulation. Do it 3 mins/day (it’s HARD just try!) and tell me what you think! PS my right hand (dominant hand) always goes numb around 1 min...
  • Vitamin C! Loving my oranges right now...🍊🍊🍊
