sona gasparian and nutrtionist kelly leveque discuss healthy eating habits
March 29, 2017  |   Lifestyle 49 comments
Okay you guys, I have a confession to make. I have a hard time knowing what I should actually be eating and, like a lot of people, I go through phases of eating unhealthy food, then jumping back to a nutritious diet. So recently, I met with nutritionist Kelly LeVeque of BeWell by Kelly (who just happens to be a celebrity nutritionist with clients like Jessica Alba and Molly Sims!) and she broke down how to create a healthy meal plan and stick to a diet. I thought I’d share a few of her tips with you guys!  1. Avoid processed carbohydrates and sugary foods. Okay, so we're going to get a little technical here! Kelly taught me that  fats and proteins don’t cause insulin to be released, where sugary foods and carbohydrates (which turn into sugar) do. Fat turns off hunger hormon...

Spring is finally here! Although I love wearing lots of layers and cute sweaters, there’s just something about Spring that makes me want to wear jeans and a t-shirt! Though it’s definitely my go-to outfit, I will admit that it can get a bit boring after awhile. So I thought I’d share two ways to style jeans and a t-shirt with you! The good thing about this outfit pairing is that there’s so much versatility, you can really play around with your look! Each outfit I wore looks completely different, and can be great for your everyday activities (especially if you work in a creative, casual outfit setting!) Here's how to style jeans and a t-shirt!  Rock ‘n’ Roll Vibes I saw this Topshop t-shirt and knew immediately that I had to wear it with my black coated s...

As any makeup lover knows, beauty products can get expensive. Replace just three pieces and before you know it, you can easily be spending $100 or even more! I will be the first to admit that high-end designer makeup is awesome. It has a better formula, usually lasts longer, and often comes in prett...

Happy Saturday, loves! After spending a week in Paris, I’m finally back in LA! I’m happy to be home, but I’m still dreaming of all the fun times and beautiful sights in the City of Light. The macarons, our gorgeous hotel, shopping, and coming across the most adorable cafés throughout the city—every time I go back to the Paris, I fall in love with it more! (Did I mention the shopping?? I went multiple times while we were there!) I wanted to share one more outfit post  with you from when KB and I wandered around the Eiffel Tower! (Plus a few tips for how to get that distinct je ne sais quoi French style!) On one of our last few days in Paris, KB and I wanted to spend some time exploring the area around the Eiffel Tower. We got some lunch at a café, walked around, and ended...

Bonjour from Paris! As you all have probably seen on social media, I’m in Paris for Paris Fashion Week with Dior! (You can see all my adventures on Instagram, @simplysona!) It’s been an incredible honor to be able to go to my favorite city with such an amazing brand like Dior Beauty! Even better was being able to share the experience with some of my friends in the beauty world! Though we’re in Paris for a little over a week, the main event was attending the Dior A/W 2017 runway show. It was such a dream to be able to go backstage and meet with Peter Phillips the creative director of Dior Beauty, then sit and watch the gorgeous Dior RTW Show! Obviously I knew that I had to have the perfect outfit for the Dior show! I wanted to pick an outfit that was classically chic ...
