We’ve heard it time and time again, the age-old saying— “happiness is a choice.”
But like, WTF does it even mean?!
Yeah it’s the ultimate caption for an epic sunset pic on Instagram, but I’m pretty sure happiness is the last choice you want to make while suffering from the pain of death, drowning in a shit ton of credit card debt, stuck in traffic on the 405, or facing whatever curve ball life throws your way.
I believe the whole “happiness is a choice” thing, is a lot easier said than done.
Although (I must say) my girl Hillary fully embodies this life mantra and has opened my eyes to what it truly means to choose happiness.

Ever since I was a mini mermaid, I’ve had a tiny obsession with spaghetti.
No joke, it was the dinner of choice for all my childhood birthday parties. Every year I celebrated at The Spaghetti Factory slurpin’ up all that meaty goodness and getting drunk off Shirley Temples.
Pasta makes my mini mermaid heart happy, but at the same time, my adulting metabolism is saying, “Come on Gennah, let’s eat more veggies.” Well, thanks to my new favorite kitchen gadget, I’ve been able to feed my soul with the comfort of spaghetti, and refuel my body with the benefits of greens.
Feast your hungry eyes on the #foodporn that is Seaweed Spaghetti.

Between the Irish car bombs, shepherd’s pie, and pints on pints on pints of green hued beer, St. Patrick’s Day is a drunken celebration that doesn’t exactly leave your waistline feeling very lucky the next day.
But lucky for us Merbabes, my girl Cassie Flynn over at Cucina Cutie created this festive holiday power green smoothie recipe, exclusively for my tribe of Badass Mermaids.
Cassie is queen of the kitchen so I was beyond stoked when she agreed to whip up a recipe for the blog. Ohh, and Cassie is training to kick ass in her first half marathon, so I mean it when I say this smoothie is totally approved to compliment The Running Mermaid lifestyle.

Anyone that knows me knows how much I love balls in my mouth.
(…and anyone that really knows me wouldn’t be surprised by my raunchy humor).
I recently revamped one of my favorite Mermaid Munchies just in time for the holidays, and I mean it when I say, they are kind of amazeballs.
Halloween is a time of creative originality, yet this spooky celebration always manages to stay true to its classic traditions of slutty cat costumes, TV marathons of Hocus Pocus and all pumpkin everything.
But before you get all white girl wasted on another Pumpkin Spiced Latte from Starbeez, or eat your body weight worth of pumpkin pie, I highly recommend you try out my latest recipe Pumpkin Spiced Protein Balls.

It’s no secret this Puerto Rican princess is a sucker for a good ol’ Piña Colada, but here in Hawaii, they put their own island twist on the national drink of my motherland.
They call it, The Lava Flow — clever, right!?
Nothing says tropical paradise more than this frothy, island flavored cocktail — and lucky for you, my Lava Flow Stay-cation Smoothie is a healthy way to enjoy the taste of Hawaii in the comfort of your own home.

You know what I love the first thing in the morning?
A big fatty bowl.
Easyyyy my little ganja Mermaid, I don’t think we’re talking about the same kind of bowl here.
But don’t feel bad, because the fatty bowl I’m talking about will complement your wake and bake session to perfection.
All tokin’ jokin’ aside, let’s get down to bowl business.
