Green Smoothie + Progress

Getting my servings of veggies and fruits can sometimes be a bit a challenge for me, especially veggies.  However, one of my favorite ways to get my fruit and veggies in is with a green smoothie!!  I love having this smoothie for breakfast but it great for any time of day.  It’s also super refreshing, perfect for the summer!!

Green Smoothie

Today I will be sharing my green smoothie recipe as well as my progress so far in my weightloss journey so keep reading!!  Continue reading

Getting Organized

Happy Sunday!!!

Since graduating I’ve been feeling like something is missing.  Maybe it’s the structure of having to always be studying or working on a paper or project.  It kept me busy and helped me enjoy my down time a lot.  Now I don’t have that and basically go to work and then get home and chill.  Thursday morning I was going through my old pictures and when I got to the pictures I took during the Fall of 2015, I grew nostalgic.  I saw all the pretty pics I had taken for posts and missed keeping up Makeup & Flowers.

Getting Organized

I got up that day and started reading a very interesting post (Plan you Blog Content like a Boss by Laura Rebecca Jones) that changed my Thursday from a lazy day to a very productive day.  Keep reading to see how these two things shifted my week and views on my blog!!  Continue reading

Play! by Sephora June 2017

It’s been quite some time since I have shared an unboxing of one of my favorite subscription “boxes,” Play! by Sephora!!  The reason I love Play! by Sephora is that I know I am always going to get quality products since they all come from Sephora.  I was definitely pleased with the items I got this month, especially because two items came from Benefit and Kat Von D.   I have never tried anything by Kat Von D but I was super excited to see the brand in my bag.  Also, how cute is the bag?!?!

Stranded on an Island

Recently I was browsing Pinterest for some blog post ideas and I stubbled upon a post by A Girl, Obsessed.  She list some post ideas specifically for beauty bloggers as well as other  categories.  One of the ideas on her list was to write about five products you would take with you if you were stranded on island.  I thought this would be a fun and interesting post.

My Favorite Ways to Workout

Working out is something super important not only when trying to lose weight but also to have a healthy lifestyle overall.  For me, working out is something that I sometimes struggle with and other times I love.  Throughout the years I have done different types of workouts and some I loved while other bored me so much.  It is very important find a workout that you love that way you can look forward to working out instead of dreading.

Sit Back Sunday #17

Happy Sunday!!!

This morning is a rainy Sunday morning and, for me, that is a super awesome way to start out Sunday.  I love raining days, especially when I don’t have to do anything all day. This week was my first week that I am no longer a student, I work on campus so going to school after graduation was super weird!!

Slow & Steady

Do any of you remember that story with the tortoise and the fox?  They race and the fox is sure he is going to win so he takes a rest and doesn’t take the race seriously.  On the other hand, the tortoise takes the race seriously and even though he is slower than the fox he ultimately wins the race.  Weightloss is similar to this story, you want to be the tortoise and not the fox.

Slow & Steady

Slow and steady is something that I have recently found is working for me instead of trying to get a fast way or some shortcut.  Keep reading to find out more!! Continue reading

Sit Back Sunday #16

Happy Sunday!!

I’m writing this week’s Sit Back Sunday late since I was hanging out with family earlier.  This week was surreal to me, it was my last week as an undergraduate!!! I took my very last final, which I made an A on (YAY!!) and then on Friday I walked across the stage.
