Ultra Fit Fest: The King of Fitness Festivals

The craziest thing happened! I was invited to Scottsdale Arizona for a fitness festival called Ultra Fit Fest put on by Michelob Ultra. I've never partnered or worked with a beer brand before so I was a bit hesitant at first to accept. But I'm so glad I did because it was honestly one of the most fun media trips I've ever been on.

Michelob Ultra invited me on this trip, all expenses paid, and all they asked of me was to share my favorite parts of the festival with all my followers on social media. If you follow me on instagram, you probably saw me working out like crazy in back-to-back fitness classes. And then, chilling by the pool in the hot Arizona sun by the afternoon. It was literally over 100 degrees every day! If you didn't catch all of that on Insta, well, now you know exactly what this trip entailed...

Actually, it was a lot more entertaining than how I just described it. But to me, the non-stop fitness offerings and pool were the highlights, and I was a happy...

Making it in NYC: Mentally & Physically

I officially moved to New York City when I was 24 years old. I already knew the city pretty well as I used to drive down into the city during my college years at Cornell University. Back then, a 5-hour drive seemed like nothing to experience an exciting weekend in the big city.  The summer before my junior year, I was accepted into a psychology internship at Cornell Weill Hospital and got to spend the entire summer living in the West Village and working hard at a job in line with my major.

Gosh, that was a long time ago! Here I am now, going on 15 years of living in this crazy city! Who knew I’d never leave? I fell in love with fast pace, forward thinking, urban lifestyle that’s unavoidable here. You either love it or you don’t and that’s what separates the “visitors” from the real New Yorkers. They say 7 years classifies you as a legit New Yorker. By that time, you’ve probably seen enough to either pack up your bags and leave or decide it’s home sweet...

Itching for a Community. I Have Eczema. Do you?

Disclosure: This blog was written in partnership with Aveeno. All writing, opinions and photos are my own. I chose to work with Aveeno because I have been using their products for years and 100% believe in their effectiveness.

If you’re reading this blog, you probably know a little bit about me. Unless of course you landed here off a random Google search. And if that’s the case, WELCOME! My name is Bianca Jade, I’ve been a blogger for over 10 years but I'm also a health, beauty & wellness TV host living in New York City.

Oh, and guess what?! I have eczema and I’m 100% comfortable shouting that across the world wide web (can we still call it that?)! I feel the need to shout because it’s October, which happens to be Eczema Awareness Month. I’ve partnered with Aveeno for the 2nd year in a row (that’s how much I love them) to talk about how eczema has affected my life.

First of all, a lot of people might ask, why is such a holiday so important? Hmm, I’ll...

I'm hosting the 2018 NY Millennial Gala + I have 6 tickets to give away!!

Hiya! I'm thrilled to share that I'm hosting the 2018 New York Millennial Gala: A Rose Gold Affair, put on by Millennial Clubs. It's quite an honor because as the host, I will be guiding everyone through the night. Our attendees are top knotch! They are outstanding millennial professionals from all walks of life with stories that would truly impress you because THEY IMPRESS ME!

Millennial Clubs was co-founded by my friend Noble Madu who pioneering a social gathering and support group for hard working millennials who are sick of hearing the negative stereotypes of their age group. Not only is he smart, Noble's passion and charisma for bringing people together is quite infectious. He literally had me at "HELLO, this is what I'm doing..." and I was like "Sign me up, let's go!" All proceeds from the gala will be benefitting the Millennials for STEM Foundation, which is a great cause to help the financially or medically strained to enter into the fields of Science, Technology,...

Destination Happiness with Swisse at Wanderlust 108

I attended Wanderlust 108 in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park with Swisse Wellness to check out their charming installation called Destination Happiness. If you’ve never heard of Swisse before, they are a premium vitamin and supplement brand founded in Melbourne, Australia that has quickly launched across the globe.

Their entire philosophy centers around “health & happiness”, which the company shortens to call H&H in terms of everything they do. So it only makes sense that their village at Wanderlust 108 was called Destination Happiness.  Here are a couple of shots of me hanging out with Swisse very early in the morning before all the Wanderlust Festival activities were in full swing.

You can’t see it in this picture, but to my right there was a braiding station and then to my left there was a massage booth. Both of these were awesome perks for Wanderlust 108 attendees who planned to run and do yoga during the festival.

I won’t lie, it...

Vegetarian Broccolini Bowtie Pasta Recipe

I love broccolini and I’m always looking for new ways to incorporate this veggie into creative dishes. Broccolini has a more refined taste and look that I prefer over regular broccoli. The florettes are a lot prettier and in my opinion the stems are yummier.

Since you can never eat enough veggies, I decided to make a vegetarian pasta using my favorite pasta noodle brand, DaVinci. I’m a sucker for bowtie and really all bite size noodles but you can make this recipe with just about any DaVinci noodle, even angel hair pasta!

My recipe is really easy, quick to make once you’ve got your veggies chopped and incredibly delicious! Keep reading as I walk you through everything you’ll need and your instructions for this flavorful masterpiece.

Your ingredient list: (Serves 2)

½ bag of DaVinci Signature Bowtie Pasta

¼ cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Kosher Salt (you'll be the judge of how much you use)

1 stock of Broccolini, also called...
