Moxie a Fashion Blog Loves the Swim She's In!

“When I was asked to partner with Aerie (American Eagle) for their Real Campaign, I was SO excited. Not just about the product I would be featuring but about the cause. I am so so so passionate about girls, young and old loving their bodies. They challenged people to post unretouched photos of them in a swimsuit to show what girls’ bodies everywhere can look like. It’s so easy to get caught up looking at magazines and wishing we had something we don’t, whether it be the clothes we’re looking at or the body of the model wearing them. I kind of love how social media blogging has put advertising into the hands of everyday girls to try to eliminate the gap that’s sometimes felt when someone looks at a model in a magazine. Learning to love your body is one of the most freeing things ever. And so my hope is that every girl everywhere can learn to do the same.”

“It took me so long to feel comfortable in swimwear. I used to avoid pool parties, and beach vacations with friends. I am so glad I am over that phase in my life! Now it’s all about the swimwear, I go for pieces that make me feel good and a little bit sexy. This suit from aerie is perfectly my style, and fits like a dream!”Aerie_7

How to Make Chicken Tacos

What better way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo than with tacos? You can also easily transform this recipe into a burrito bowl by serving it over rice or into a taco salad over a bed of greens— whatever you want!
How to Make Chicken Tacos

INGREDIENTS

For the salsa:
1 cup of pineapple, diced
1 cup of grape tomatoes, sliced
1/2 small red onion, sliced thinly
1 jalapeño (seeds removed), diced
1 large red bell pepper, diced
1/2 bunch of cilantro, chopped
2 tbsp juice

How to Make Chicken Tacos

For the chicken:
1 lb chicken (breasts or tenders)
1 lime, juiced
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cayenne
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp salt (optional for serving)

How to Make Chicken Tacos

Optional for serving:
Arugula
Avocado
Tortillas

DIRECTIONS

1] To make the chicken, combine the spices and lime juice in a small dish. Season the chicken with the spice rub and allow it to marinate in the fridge for at least an hour.
2] Combine bell pepper, onion, jalapeño, tomato, pineapple and cilantro in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Squeeze in the lime juice and mix to combine. Set aside or place in the fridge.
3] Cook the chicken in a skillet on medium-high heat until it’s cooked through and no longer pink, about four minutes per side. Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces, assemble your tacos and eat up!
