May Goal Setting

Hey, April! I feel like I did a bit better this month, although still not quite as well as I’d have liked. I definitely still need to figure out a way to be more active, which is my biggest struggle right now. My blogging has been going really well, though, so I’m happy to say that …

Holy Grail Beauty Products

We all have a few products that we keep buying over and over again despite all the other options available. Often these become referred to as “Holy Grail” because they are just that good. While I’m still on the hunt for a lot of these products myself, I have found a couple that I believe …

Fitbit Alta Review

If you’ve followed me for a while, then you’ll know it’s no secret that I love my fitness trackers. I’ve tested quite a few of them, and I currently have one review on one of the trackers from the Fossil Q line. There will also be a review on the Jawbone Up3 soon. Today’s review …

20 Week Pregnancy Update

I’m actually half way for real now. 20 weeks pregnant today! It feels pretty surreal still. Tomorrow we have our 20-week scan, which is really exciting. We will finally be able to find out the gender, which is great! I don’t know how much longer I could go without finding out. It’s so hard to …

the Anti-Haul

Last week I posted a “mini-haul” if you could even call it that, I only really bought one thing, but for comparison, I thought it would be fun to make today’s post an anti-haul. So this post will be dedicated to a handful of products that I definitely (or at least most likely) will not …

19 Week Pregnancy Update

I feel like I don’t always have much to say since I’ve been doing these every week. Pregnancy isn’t always super interesting for the first little while, and I’ve had a mostly uneventful pregnancy on top of that. Plus, I promised to start taking photos weeks ago, and never really started, which is unfortunate, since …

Sephora Shopping Cart

I was originally going to show you what was in my shopping cart, as I tend to put stuff in there all the time with the intention of going back, but then it dawned on me when I went to make a purchase online (I usually shop in store), that I had to move all …

Perfect (Not)Chipotle Black or Pinto Beans

This is part two of my (not)Chipotle recipe series. Two weeks ago we made Cilantro-Lime rice, and today we’re going to make (not)Chipotle beans! Another basic so that you can be making your own Chipotle-inspired bowls (or salads or burritos) at home in no time! Today we’ll make some super easy, always perfect beans. You can …

18 Week Pregnancy Update

Today we are 18 weeks pregnant! I feel like I don’t always have much to say since I’ve been doing these every week. Pregnancy isn’t always super interesting for the first little while, and I’ve had a mostly uneventful pregnancy on top of that. Plus, I promised to start taking photos weeks ago, and never …
