Luv Michael Organic Granola


Eating healthy is a lifestyle and finding the perfect to carry you throughout the day can either help you feel more productive or make you sluggish. The Originola Granola from Luv Michael is a great snack because it contains dairy free and organic ingredients to keep you energized and reduce cravings for overly sweet and salty treats. Luv Michael Locally Sourced Organic Granola is a delicious on the go snack that you will not regret getting addicted to. Not only is Luv Michael good for you, but this brand does good as well. Luv Michael’s mission is to provide meaningful vocational training for the autistic population and to produce exceptional gluten-free and natural products. Luv Michael educates, trains and employs individuals with autism, which can otherwise be a challenge. 




Michael Kessaris is the inspiration for the non-profit Luv Michael. He is an 18 year old with autism who has a passion for cooking. Finding a career was not easy for Michael, a Port Washington, New York native. Despite his love of cooking, Michael was unable to enroll in culinary school without a high school diploma. Michael’s parents, both physicians, Lisa Liberatore, MD and Dimitri Kessaris, MD, helped create the food based business so that their son and others with autism would be active participants in society and lead happy, productive lives. These days the 2-ounce snackable Originola Granola can be found in all New York Fresh & Co., CafĂ© Metro and Wild by Nature stores as well as select Starbucks and at local stores in Southampton, New York and throughout Delaware. Luv Michael is expanding daily with hopes of sharing the LUV in all 50 states. For more information on Luv Michael, visit www.luvmichael.com!

Special thanks to Luv Michael for sharing with me a sample of their yummy granola!

Cinderella Ready


Being a huge fan of all things Disney, I love finding ways to throw a little Disney favor into my style. The other day I posted this pic on Instagram showing some love to my girl Cinderella. This was just one of the shirts, I had to have from LookHuman.com. There's tons of fun, graphic tees, tanks, and other tops to customize and order in a crazy wide range of subjects. Also if you're a Disney geek, like me, and love finding cute tops to subtly show your Disney side, check out my InstaShop page for more inspiration!
