Yoplait vs. Chobani Taste Off

April 18, 2014

In a national taste test, Yoplait Greek 100 Strawberry beat Chobani Simply 100 Strawberry. Today, I decided to host a little Yoplait vs. Chobani taste-off of my own! I invited a few friends over to find out once and for all which brand has the best Greek Yogurt. In order to find out which yogurt held supreme, I broke the taste-off into five categories: design, nutritional value, price, availability and (most importantly) taste! 
Yoplait vs. Chobani

Round 1: Design

While the packaging on both is nice, 3/4 friends agreed that the red coloring on the Chobani package really highlighted the strawberries. This one goes to Chobani!

Round 2: Nutritional Value.

This one was a tie because both greek yogurts are only 100 calories. Talk about a yummy and healthy snack!

Round 3: Price. The Yoplait Greek 100 Strawberry yogurt retailed for $1.03, while the Chobani Simply 100 Strawberry retailed for $1.07. This round goes to Yoplait!

Round 4: Availability. I was able to find the Yoplait Greek 100 Strawberry yogurt at Target, Walmart and two local grocery stores, while I was only able to find the Chobani Simply 100 Strawberry at one grocery store. I need a yogurt that isn’t hard to find! This one goes to Yoplait!

Round 5: Taste.
Yoplait vs. Chobani
First of all, I liked how the Yoplait had a reddish/pink coloring to it. It actually looks like it’s strawberry flavored. By just looking at the Chobani, you can’t tell what the flavoring might be. We all agreed that the constancy of the yoplait was very creamy and smooth while the Chobani was very thick and chunky.  Also there seemed to be a few strawberry chunks in the Yoplait, which added extra flavor! By an unanimous vote, Yoplait wins!

How to Design your life with Kleenex Style Studio

April 5, 2014

*This post is sponsored by Kleenex, but my love for their Style Studio is all my own!*
Kleenex Style Studio
To celebrate Kleenex’s 90th anniversary, they’re bringing you another innovative first: The Kleenex® Style Studio. It’s a fun, inspiring way to discover more of the Kleenex® Brand designs and products you love. And maybe even a few that’ll take you by surprise!

It’s Spring cleaning time, so out with the old and in with the new (Kleenex boxes that is!) Whenever I’m tiding up a space, I always try to rearrange my Kleenex boxes. What I love about Kleenex so much is that their designs fit vertically whenever you put them. Whether you put them in the bathroom, in your bedroom, on your kitchen counters or even keep them in your car, your Kleenex boxes will effortlessly fit any environment. My favorite place to keep my Kleenex boxes are right under my TV (got to keep them handy when I’m watching television, I tend to get very emotional during certain shows) and on my vanity.

Spring Shopping at Macy’s

March 31, 2014

*Special thanks to Macy’s for sponsoring today’s post. As always, I opinions are my own*
This spring I’ve been on a mission to upgrade my wardrobe since it seems like all my clothes are suited for either winter or summer. I want more ‘spring’ items, like dresses, pastel colored shirts and flats! So I headed to Macy’s to look for the perfect spring clothing!

I immediately fell in love with everything in this seasons American Rag line! I especially loved the Printed Harem Pants and Multicolor Crew-Neck Sweater. 
I found some more really cute items from American Rag and two BCX dresses (this one and this one) that would be perfect for job interviews! I couldn’t leave Macy’s without  heading to my favorite section: SHOES! I really love Jessica Simpson’s line because the heels are actually very easy to walk it, which is a hugh plus. I am on the look out for some comfortable heels to go with my new BCX dresses, any recommendations? Tweet me @Simplysinova using the hashtag #MacysCampusTour!

This week I decided to hit up my Macy’s App to continue my spring wardrobe shopping!

I love how easy the Macy’s App is to navigate! As soon as I opened the app, I headed over to the ‘Spring Must Haves’ section under the juniors tab. This took me straight to the mstylelab section, which was broken up into different trends. The floral frocks section automatically caught my eye and I knew I had found what I was looking for! I feel in love with this gorgeous Trixxi Floral-Print Cutout dress and ordered it immediately! I can’t wait to rock this dress this spring!

I’m a Material Girl + Macy’s M Style Lab

March 3, 2014

*Special thanks to Macy’s for sponsoring today’s post. As always, all opinions are my own*
Saturday Macy’s sent me on a quick little shopping trip around the mstylelab (the section of Macy’s geared specifically towards millennials) and I had a pretty hard time not bringing the whole store home with me!Macy’s mstylelab includes some of my favorite brands like: American Rag, Material Girl, Levis, XOXO and Jessica Simpson! My favorite line this season has got to be Material Girl! Maybe it’s because super trendy British pop singer Rita Ora is the spokesmodel or because the clothes are so girly and hip! Seriously, if I had endless money I’d buy every single item in this season’s Material Girl line!

As soon as I saw these adorable Material Girl printed leggings I know I had to get them! This spring I’m trying to switch up my style a little bit. I’m going for a girly grungy hippie (is that possible?) look and these legging are the perfect place to start! Besides the leggings, my favorite pieces from the Material Girl line were the Faux-Leather Sheer-Sleeve Blazer, the Chiffon Marled-Knit High-Low Sweater, the Skater Dress and the adorable Bergen Booties all pictured below:
Unfortunately, they didn’t have the dress or boots in my size so it looks like I’ll be hitting up my Macy’s app to complete my Material Girl collection!
