I'm hosting a great giveaway with some other blogger girls on Instagram and giving away a new Rebecca Minkoff crossbody bag! I'm a huge Rebecca Minkoff fan and have a couple of her bags and continually impressed with the quality. Most of all I love the edgy yet classic designs that will last you through multiple seasons. Head over to Instagram to check it out!
You know how I know I'm getting old? I want serving pieces for Christmas. I know, I know. Louisville Stoneware is a company that has been around for over a hundred years and all their pieces are so well made that I think they would be a great investment and something I would keep forever. However, I'm having trouble selecting a patter. Help me choose!
Which do you think?
I love trying out new products so when the folks at Natural Balance Foods reached out and offered to send me some healthy cereal bars I was so excited! They were gracious enough to send me a sampler pack of their Nakd bars and I've enjoyed snacking on them all week! My favorites have been the cocoa mint and the orange chocolate. They are the perfect size for a quick snack without feeling like you're forcing down a protein bar. All the flavors are made from natural ingredients, gluten free, dairy free, and no artificial sweeteners. Yum!
This has been my first week on the Beachbody 21 Day Fix plan it's going surprisingly well (famous last words, right). If you're not familiar with the program it's centered around 6 containers. Each container is a different color and represents a food group (Protein, fruits, veggies, carbs, healthy fats, oils/dressings).
I have a huge appetite and honestly can eat like a grown man if I don't watch myself so these have helped out tremendously with portion control. It took me a while to get a grip on all the containers but I've been pretty satisfied hunger wise and don't feel too deprived. I've been loving the chocolate Shakeology shakes and they feel like a treat when I add peanut butter or coffee! Here are some of my meals I've had this week!
Lemon dijon salmon, brussels, and quinoa (1R; 2G; 1Y)
Mini Pepper nachos! (1G; 1R; 1B)
Open face burger; salad; sweet potato (1R; 2Y; 1B; 2G)
Crockpot buffalo chicken salad with greek yogurt ranch (2R; 1Y; 1G)
I'm way too excited about these poms! No more mess digging out the little jewels of deliciousness!
I'm really going to try and stick with this (aside from Thanksgiving) so send me your recipes if you're familiar with the plan! I've been tracking all my recipes and ideas on this Pinterest board.
This Lush addiction is getting real people. I couldn't resist picking up this Santa's lip scrub and it did not disappoint. It tastes like a cherry coke and make your lips feel so smooth! The packaging is very cute and would make a great stocking stuffer.
Have a great weekend!
