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...
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,...
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...
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...

Did you know heart disease is the leading cause of death among women globally? That's why I take care of my body & heart by working out, staying hydrated, moving during the day and taking my Nature Made® Omega-3 supplements! Omega-3 fatty acids can be beneficial in supporting a heart healthy lifestyle.† That’s why the NEW Nature Made® Omega-3 Full Strength Mini, 500mg EPA+DHA, Burpless supplements are my #VOTD (vitamins of the day).
It’s a good look for all of us to make healthy choices when it comes to our nutrition and long-term health, especially if that means avoiding heart disease. Over the last few years I’ve participated in many events with all kinds of organizations supporting women’s heart health. It deserves our attention, because heart disease often goes unnoticed and untreated until it’s too...
Tell me if you can relate? You go to the eye doctor. You browse their eyewear. You fall in love with a pair of frames that look amazing on you. You ask for the price. BOOM! It's $350! And the excuse for the price is always the same thing: "Well, they're DESIGNER." Honestly, most of the time, I've never even heard of the designer that makes the glasses. The brand name means nothing to me.
Maybe it's because I don't wear my glasses 24/7 as I'm mostly in contacts. I'm a part time eyeglasses wearer but I still value the look and feel of prescription eyewear on my face. I just don't believe in paying a crazy amount of money for 1 pair of glasses that I might get bored of within a few months. If you can relate, then you're going to appreciate my discovery.
Firmoo is an online optical store that I was lucky enough to find a the right time when I was in need of new glasses. Their deals are INCREDIBLE! I decided to test them out by uploading my prescription and browsing their frames...
