Oscars 2014 Best Dressed

Last nights Oscars may have been the best I've ever seen mainly because Ellen made it so fun! I don't think that anyone else would have done a better job of hosting. There are some movies that I have put on my "must see" list and I have a new love for Jared Letos' personality. Below are some of my favorite moments:

  • Naomi Watts: Calvin Klein 
  • Charlize Theron: Dior Couture
  • Sandra Bullock: Alexander McQueen
  • Kerry Washington: Jason WU

Medical Corner: Gluten Free Diets

From the moment we all heard of how Miley Cyrus lost weight while being on a gluten free diet it began to be a fad with the world of weight loss. I even tweeted about wanting to go on a gluten free diet last week but I have done some research and spoke to some doctors about this new fad and I wanted to share with you all some of the things I learned.


First of all, what is gluten?
Gluten is a protein composite that is in foods mainly processed from wheat. It is what gives rise and keeps the breads shape. So as you can tell from now that consist of most of your breads, pasta, and things you eat on a regular daily food intake. 

So, who should REALLY be on a gluten free diet?
From the conversations I have had with a few doctors they all say the same thing. NO BENEFITS HAVE BEEN FOUND for people who are on a gluten free diet that do not have celiac diease (a condition that damages the lining of the small intestine and prevents it from absorbing parts of food that are important for staying healthy. The damage is due to a reaction to eating gluten.) People who have celiac diease and eat gluten can have symptoms of diarrhea and fatigue. Some cases have been found that people who are gluten free diets and do not have celiac diease can cause weight gain and nutritional dysfunctions. 

Overall, gluten free diets are for people who have celiac diease but like every other fad most people will  not pay attention to the FACTS and just go into these diets because "Miley Cyrus" looks "so thin/fit". But what I wanted to bring you guys the facts and truths about gluten free diets and I hope that you take some information from this post with you. Remember NO BENEFITS HAVE BEEN FOUND UNLESS YOU HAVE CELIAC DIEASE and gluten free products can be quite EXPENSIVE.

One thing I always tell everyone is "If you want to loose weight and be healthy, do it the best way that works by exercising and eating right!"

Street Style: Gwen Stefani + Karen Walker

 I absolutely LOVE Gwen Stefani's style! Its very earthy, down to earth, and comfortable. If I could do a street style everyday it would be on her. She has been seen wearing a lot of Karen Walker lately and it looks so fab on her. The second outfit on here is my favorite, its very much something I would wear on a daily.


Doesn't this look straight out of a magazine?


PS: If you follow me on twitter you know that I wanted to go on a Gluten-Free diet. I will have some great the pro + cons about that on my Medical Corner on Wednesday. So be sure to tune in!

Catching You Up

It's been a couple LONG months since I have blogged and I've been dying to get back on the blog train! I'm gonna catch you guys up on a couple new things going on in my life right. First of all I am beyond glad that Spring semester is OVER.  It was the most stressed semester I have ever had in my entire college life, but thats over and done with. Anywho now that the sun is steaming hot and the beach is looking its best, I wont be able to enjoy it. My summer is so busy but I love it! I came back home for 2 weeks to shadow a doctor and its the best thing I have done all summer. I love it because I get to see the patients progressing and it feels amazing. I go back to San Antonio next week and I hope to do a STREET STYLE POST while I'm there because I mean if you haven't been to San Antonio your missing out on the amazing-ness that is downtown SA.  On top of everything I am taking summer classes! So I am hoping to make this summer a bit fun before Fall because once that comes around I will be dead with the classes I am taking. So thats what I have been up to lately, catch you guys on the flip side!

Texas Medical Association Rally

If you guys don't know yet, I am a pre-med major at my university. So I am not just interested in fashion and music, I am actually a huge nerd when it comes to medicine and science. So today I wanted to bring you something different than what I usually post, and I might start doing these frequently, a health post.

In medical news,the Texas Medical Association held a rally yesterday afternoon in Mcallen,Texas to reverse state cuts in Medicare-Medicaid funding. Basically, there are budget cuts that are coming into effect for physicians' medicare-medicaid patients. Most of the physicians patients in the Rio Grande Valley are medicare-medicaid based so that means that the physicians would have less patients (less income) and they would have to close their doors to many of their patients, some even long-time patients. Alone, in the RGV 75-80% of the physicians patients are medicare-medicaid based being a dramatic difference than other cities in Texas such as Dallas where the percentage is down to 15-20%. Just in the last years budget cuts the physicians in the RGV are getting 20% less income. I am glad to see that not only are the patients taking stand for their rights to continue to see the physicians they have always been with but as well as the physicians fighting for their patients.
