Fruit Junkie

Let's talk about... I know you guys are saying, Kim sure loves talking about food. HaHaHa I Do! But lately many of the fashion campaigns and editorials have incorporated food into their spreads. No pun intended. Well that brings me to today's topic... Summer Treats! What are yours?

Below is a Spring 2012 ad campaign for Aldo Shoes. It features model Anais Puiliot. Terry Richardson is the photographer. The stylist is Sabrina Schreder.

STOP being a Junk-Food Junkie! That would be a good weight loss campaign huh? LOL I should've gone into Marketing instead of Science! It's much more fun! HaHa I've been trying to incorporate less junk food in my diet and more au naturalle stuff like FRUIT (see my pics below). I've been eating pears, bananas, fresh strawberries, bought some Kellogg's Smart Start Cereal (it's good...oat clusters + flakes + add sliced fruit over it = YUM) and THEN I came across Kraft's Philadelphia Indulgences. That literally threw me for a FRUIT LOOP! Have you guys seen it or tried it? SINful! It comes in milk, dark and white chocolate. You can dip your fruit and anything else in it. It looks sooo good! They have the tub and smaller containers. Here's the nutritional value...HaHaHa!

Does your diet change when the seasons change? Mine does. Gosh it's like 80 degrees here in NOLA right now. A popsicle or snowball would be good right now. HaHaHa!  I also have sandals on the brain. LOL I never heard of Aldo (until this campaign), but they have some cute sandals. The 1st one reminds me of Neapolitan Ice Cream w/MINT LOL. I know...I know...FOOD! Watch the super short 16 second video below. I love the slow motion of how she drops the popsicle in the video. Mine would never do that, because it would've been EATEN! LOL Have a Great Thursday Everybody!

These are cool. Love the colours. I don't have a diet really. I eat whatever, lol. No, I eat lots of fruit/vegetables anytime of year, which fruit is what changes during the year due to what's it season. I love fruit though, strawberries yum!!Not tried the Phili yet,looks good though. I had the one with sweet chili in it and that was fab, will have to try the chocolate one now :))) Hope you have a fab day!! x

TheTinyHeart said...

I saw a commercial for that Philadelphia spreads and the chocolate one looks so delish! I definitely eat different foods when it gets warm out...I stop eating soups and eat more salad.

Love the Aldo Campaign....its so creative!! Everyone loves food :)


Eloquent English said...

I think getting in the out of the junk food habit can be quite hard, but once you do and start eating more healthy foods (fruits/veggies) your body starts to crave those things when you lack having it in your diet. This winter we have been quite fortunate to find good fruits even during the winter months and ironically Oranges have been quite fantastic at Target. Strange but true!

Love the shoes! Aldo and I have a love/hate relationship. Love the looks of their shoes, but I'm a half size and find it very, very difficult to wear any of there shoes unless they are open toed. I can't go up a size as I have AA narrow feet!

Jessica said...

Hey Kim! Oh man, I want a new pair of shoes now! And holy crap, that Philadelphia chocolate dip sounds amazing. I've never heard of it, AND I'm going grocery shopping today which MEANS I may have to pick some up! Haha. Although I should stick to dipping fruit in it, since I gained some weight in the process of moving. I love food too much! ;)

xx Jessica

Marion said...

Aldo is seriously one of my favorites!! I see a few pairs here that are gorgeous...so unfortunately I need to inform my husband that we need to go shopping this weekend. I'll blame you. LOL!
And great...now I'm thinking about dipping strawberries and pretzels into chocolate. It's not even 9am. You're killing me Kim!!! :-)

Have a great day friend!

Bonnie said...

Junk food literally makes me sick. My body is not used to digesting it anymore, so anytime I eat it I feel really ill. That's probably a good thing. Haha.

Little Rus said...

Wow, that's a lot of bananas! :) Got to check Aldo's new collection soon, haven't been on their website for a while.
By the way, please don't eat Kellogs if you really want to take care of your health. Best to stick with regular organic porridge and add a handful of frozen blueberries (or a chopped banana since we are on a banana topic today) to it. MUCH better. :D


prettymeggy said...

i already started my spring/summer diet: fruits and veggies :)
its lighter and easy to eat!!!!
that campaign is actually cute very colorful :)

I eat low carb and low sugar and it isn't necessarily a diet anymore, but a lifestyle change (and a good one although I had a lot of great flatbread and dips tonight!) Ooh the Philly flavors sound awesome!

Aldo was definitely a shoe store for my college years and still has cute styles!

kim, absolutely my diet changes as the seasons do. i do go lighter during the summer time, but really indulge during the winter. :) this campaign is so delish! :)


Rhe Beep said...

I love tat you posted this. My friends and I were talking about how we eat less in the spring/summer months! It's probably to keep off the lbs for swimsuit season! haha.

This Aldo campaign is super cute. I always love their advertisements.


miss b said...

I'm always trying to eat more fruit - grapes and bananas are favourite at the moment (easy to eat - always a bonus!)but I'm always drawn to chocolate snacks so may have to check out the Philly! Those wedges are gorgeous - Aldo is good for inexpensive clutches too.

Outside Looking In said...

I want the neopolitan sandals!!! Love the ads! Great post!


Stefania Boccolato said...

wow that philadelphia indulgence seems so delicious, hope some day it will arrive here in italy to try it!


Sam said...

Am loving the bright and cheery Aldo campaign. Can spot a few pairs I need in my closet. Thats so great that you're getting to eat healthy - I have to be coaxed into it ;) Thanks for the motivation

amy b.s. said...

i've never heard of them either, but their sandals are cute and so are their ads!

Anonymous said...

yumm, i want it all

A Brit Greek said...

Everything about this post is awesome, and also giving me a nudge and cutting out sweet naughty bites too... BUT the thing that's got my eyes popping out of my head is the Phili in chocolate - I need it to be available here, like now!

kerker said...

i tend to eat more chocolate and savory cravings in winter than in summer.

Dale Janeé said...

OMG, how cute Kim. I love all the bright fruity colors and I think I have some staples that I always eat, but i definitely eat better in the summer I think. I love fresh fruit! Your's are some of my favorites, I love this treat I make too, sour red vines. I had no idea about your blog roll..so lucky i got you back. hehe..I'll send you some candy, I think you'll love it. Thanks for your sweet comment too


Shop N' Chomp said...

What a fun campaign! Makes you really wish for Spring and Summer to get here already...haha! And not these but I have two pairs of Aldo sandals and they are quite comfy. :D

Jessica said...

love this!!!
Summer Treats! What are yours? watermelon and looots of fro yo n ice cream.. :)

Jennifer Fabulous said...


Oh dear lord. There goes my weekend. There might not even be fruit involved. Just my hand.

songbird said...

i love this spread!lol!
my diet does change with seasons..i eat seasonal fruits and veggies..but my lunch stays same..dal,rice and aveg curry..it's a habit..i need that everyday or else i feel light headed..i like kellog's cereals a lot..they are the healthiest snacks for me!

Julie (Little Pink Rain Boots) said...

I'm always talking about food too, which could be why I love this post I get to talk about my favorite summer treat! which is strawberry shortcake, if it didn't promise to make me fat I would eat it morning, noon and night hehe.

Aldo has such a fun campaign but it's making me crave ice cream, there I go again...

Katherine McAdoo said...

Mmmm I love fruits and these ads are stellar. I don't eat much fruit in the winter because I usually relate fruit to being cold. That's weird. I change a lot of what I eat by season, I can't really eat salad in the winter!

Rachel said...

That chocolate spread looks AMAZINGGG. Haha..i guess the Aldo ads looks good too :)

xo Rachel


Tinfoil Tiaras said...

110 calories per 2 tbsp!!! EeEk! I have such a sweet craving but I've been drinking a smoothis each morning for some fruit-mmm! Love the Aldo banana pic- too cute!

Supal said...

Love this! I'm a big fruit lover so I'm a firm believer of the anti-junk food mantra :)


Maureen at The Inglenook Decor said...

their campaign is amazing.. . just saw them in a mag & was drawn to the bananas!

Skinny Moonstick said...

Such a sweet campaign!! I adore their creativity, and it just shows how food and fashion are most women sweetest indulgence... I'm a vegetarian, so my food is always fresh and crunchy all year round :)
Good luck!


Lynn said...

I love Aldo's campaign! The fruit gives it a fun summer twist.


Rebeca Muñoz López said...

Ohhh Kim this shoes are awesome! Like it :)


my thrifty closet said...

the aldo adverts looks really fun and enticing. I like the colors. Very fruity! And Philidelphia choco spread is new to me, we don;t have it in Singapore. But we like the cheese spread. I like fruits... infact I feel funny not eating them everyday! Thanks for this fruity foody post.


ShinyPrettyThings said...

i actually really love fruit!!! but yeah, it's hard to be healthy. i love junk food more LOL

Johanna said...

Awesome post, so colourful and sunny :) My favourite summer treat is absolutely fresh strawberries! ♥ xoxo

Diva In Me said...

Aldo's ad looks fun don't you think. They do have some pretty shoes and quite comfy too. I just bought 1 in Orange! =P
I'm not so much of a fruit person besides easy eat stuff like apples, bananas and grapes. Although looking at the ad by Philadelphia, it makes me want to get 1 later and eat with strawberries! LOL!! I'm a total junkie I tell you..chips, chocolates and all!

Megan said...

I LOVE Aldo shoes - really like all the colors they used for this campaign. So springy! :)

Kirstin Marie said...

I saw the banana picture up in a store or something & I thought it was really neat. I think my favorite "healthy" item would be Special K, the plain original one, with plain unsweetened almond milk. OMG - delish!

Mica said...

Lovely bright pictures! :)

I find my diet changes with the weather - reach for naughty junk food more when it's colder outside!


FashionCherry said...

Devine pictures! Love Aldo and their advertising.

Love your blog hun! :-)


Chocolate, Cookies & Candies said...

Oh boy, does my diet change with the seasons or what?! I crave for soups and casseroles during the colder months. The hotter months call for salad and fruit.

oomph. said...

aldo is one of my favorite brands because a) the have cute stuff b) they have small sizes! love the flat sandal on the left...too cute!

never saw those philadelphia indulgence things before. looks heavenly!


Lorena said...

loving all the shoes and colors:) Now i want a fruit lol going to have an apple right now my mouth got watery haha:)


Claire said...

gorgeous shoes! i love the colorful ones for the spring. and the idea of cream cheese, especially chocolate, on my fruit is delectable!!!


Mrs C ♥ said...

Never heard of Aldo? Grrrrrrl, you've been missin out!! I DIE over their shoes & I've also bought several of their purses over the years as well (carrying a red one today, in fact!). BUT, I'm definitely a bargain shopper so I don't think I've ever paid full price for their stuff. We have an outlet store here plus their regular store close to me has a pretty good clearance section.
