I can’t sleep in anymore, it is a proven fact. So instead of sitting around on my butt, I decided to be active. So loading the dogs and my husband in the car we set off for an easy hike. The trail we went on was only 2.7 miles so if we added it up we only hiked 5.4. It’s been almost a year since I’ve hiked anything so we took it slow since we are trying to get into the groove of it.
While the scenery was not much to look at, as it was mostly hills with bushes, it was really the cool fresh air I was breathing and the conversation that was the main focus. Just taking time out to enjoy nature and the simple things in life is what makes times like these special. The only time I had my phone on me was to quickly take these pictures and then I just put it away. I almost snapchatted, but I decided not to. I just wanted to live in the moment and enjoy. I did a post on Instagram but that was much later.
Sometimes we need to remember that there are simple things we can do to make ourselves happy.
When a box comes to your door filled to the brim with snacks, it makes your day 10 times better. OF course I soon as I opened my box of goodies, the hubby decides he wants to immediately grab all he wants and eats them while your back is turned. After the ambush, I was surprised at how much was still left in the box (he took quite a bit)
There’s Chips, Dips, and bars which a lot of other things that I can’t wait to try. So if you looking for something for yourself or need a healthy snack for your kids this HERE is the place to go.
Did I accidentally break a bunch of mirrors? Walk under tons of ladders? Spill a gallon of salt, because my luck seems to have hit the pits lately.
I’m in pain and currently on multiple medications. BECAUSE I HAVE A FREAKING BLADDER INFECTION!!!!!
It really is one of the worse things that happened to me this year and during my holy birthday month too! I have to pee every 5 minutes and It can’t stop and won’t stop.
One thing I can say is that I finally got my first paycheck with my new job, so I bought me some make-up (because we all know how much I need it…not) so I’ll post up my haul, most likely Monday, because I finally have another Sample Sunday planned for you all tomorrow. Exciting isn’t it?
Wish me luck on the peeing…

What are your Resolutions for this year?
So on my quest to better my teeth due to my excessive coffee addiction (The smart thing to do would be to cut down on the coffee, but one step at a time right?) I’ve have decided to try something new. My old tooth brush was nothing fancy, it was not even electric. It was just a simple toothbrush given to me free from my dentist. No frills, no thrills, no excitement. Who needs to get excited about brushing their teeth.
Well I do. So I went out and got something exciting. This rechargeable toothbrush from Triple Bristle is about as exciting as you can get. While a bit intimidating to use as first I was surprised at home way it was to just plop into my mouth and start brushing.
The three speed settings let you brush at whatever pace you need. The normal setting is for all you folks out there that have normal non-sensitive coffee free teeth, while they have a sensitive setting that I use, cause you know I’m a sensitive individual. Last they have a pulse setting if you like to have things pulsing in your mouth…(that reads wrong I didn’t mean it in that way)
The toothbrush is Rechargeable, so when your done just set it into its base and boom it’s charging. It comes with an extra head too!
While it’s a bit expensive I think it’s worth it, but it’s. On sale right now for almost have the price on amazon so you can purchase it HERE.
No, I don’t want to be like the Kardashians (except I kinda do but not as annoying). The actual reason I’m writing this post is because I am trying out Waist Trainers which have recently been made a bit famous by the Kardashians. They eat, sleep and workout in these things and I have been given the chance to try one out.
I mostly wanted to use it as a way to sit up straighter. I am so many problems with my posture that has recently been coming back to bite my butt with lower back pains. So much so that It’s affecting my hips and walking. I am not even 30 yet, I really shouldn’t be having these types of problems.
So I sucked it in and got one. The Material is soft breathable and comfortable, I thought it would be a huge pain to put due to all the little hooks you have to fasten but it barely took me a minute (I’m thanking my years wearing bra for this one). I though wearing it around during the summer would result in a sweaty uncomfortable mess of a body, but it didn’t make me feel any hotter than I should have been. The tiny holes in the fabric allow room for your body to breathe.
I really enjoyed wearing the corset, while I have a natural hourglass figure (you know when I actually show it off instead of wearing scrubs like I’m used to) it does define the shape of my body more. If you are looking for something to give you a hourglass figure definitely look for something like this. Plus it really does help with my back problems, as I have to sit up straighter and give my body the proper way to sit.
Two things to remember if your going to try a waist trainer. One, You need to train your body with it, don’t get it and immediately put it on and wear it all day. Start with a couple hours a day and gradually increase the duration each time. Two, this isn’t a magically fix it for your body. This won’t suddenly transform your shape into a Voluptuous vixen, This is there as a helper and motivator!
You can Purchase the one I’m using HERE
Have you Tried a waist Trainer? What do you think?
I’ve been lazy everyone. Not just in a ‘Oh I will do it tomorrow’ kind of lazy but in a ‘Never gonna do it’ kind of lazy. Why? Well Motivation is a big factor, also it’s hot, I work full time and go to school, plus it just takes way too much time for me to do anything. Honestly those are just excuses I keep using and I really need to stop.
I found a way to get some fitness in while still maintaining all of my work. I’ve sort of stumbled upon Downward Dog app. Honest I thought it had to do with real dog before I realized it was a Yoga position (I am just a little slow). I decided to try it out even if it wasn’t about actual dogs or have any pictures of puppies or anything. I am so glad I did too because I really like it. It was super easy to sign up and although you have to be a member ($2.99 a month) to access most of the features, it is worth a try especially if your a beginner.
I became a member and I was able to set the pace I want, change the difficulty and control the music. Can I just say that I was surprised which the music selection, they have accoustic when your in a soothing mood, or some beats to get your blood pumping. Another reason I paid to be a member was so I could control the length of times, which is anywhere from 10 minutes to 90 minutes depending on your difficulty.
The Yogi Adrienne Kimberley has a very soothing voice and is very clear with her instruction on each position, if you have trouble following along with verbal instructions the screen will show the positions. I do Yoga before I shower at night as it is very relaxing to my body and helps me sleep.
I recommend this app to anyone who likes their fitness with mobility.
Have any favorite fitness apps?
- Strong smell
- Smaller bottle than I thought
What it’s suppose to do:
- Soften Dry skin
- Moisturizer Skin
- Boost Lethargic Skin
What’s in it?
- Manuka Honey
- Chamomile Extract
- Ginger Extract
The soap itself is a bit watery so I felt I was unable to control how much came out onto my loofa at first, so I may have wasted more than I should. The soap lathers well and has a strong but pleasant smell. It’s suppose to be Gentle enough for a child 3 years of age to use, Would I recommend this for children? Probably not mostly because I can’t see them liking the smell. It soothes me but a unscented soap would be better for children.
I was surprised at how moisturized I felt. My skin felt clean and usually if the wash isn’t cream-like I don’t get the feeling of being moisturized, so I was pleasantly surprised about that. The only gripe I really have about it is how watery it is and I feel like I am using it quicker than I should be. Other than that I really like it.
