On The Go Snacking With Balance

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Balance. All opinions are my own. I always feel like I’m on the go. Waking up early, getting ready for work, getting my son ready for school (have you put your shoes on yet?!) then sitting in traffic for an hour to get each of us to our destinations. Most mornings are so hectic, I forget simple things… Like eating. Then I’m sitting in traffic and my stomach starts growling. Luckily, I have a Balance Bar sitting in my purse that I threw in there really quick the night before knowing how busy things can be in the morning. Being busy all the time has some major disadvantages. For me, the biggest one was not eating right. Rushing into work, trying to remember if I still had that bag of potato chips stashed away (or those cookies) so I…

Halo Top Ice Cream Mint Chip, Chocolate Mocha Chip & Birthday Cake

Press Sample I have something a little different to share tonight. I was given the opportunity to try out and review some Halo Top Ice Cream flavors. So I’ll be sharing my thoughts on Halo Top Ice Cream Mint Chip, Chocolate Mocha Chip & Birthday Cake Now I know what some are thinking. Why am I sharing ice cream on a beauty blog? Well, because I feel like it really. Will I be sharing a lot of food related content? No. I don’t cook. I don’t make fancy snacks. Heck, I barely know where Nick keeps stuff in the kitchen because that’s not my thing. In our household Nick cooks, I do the dishes after. That’s our deal and we’ve held that deal together for almost 7.5 years now. Ok back to my reasoning a bit more though. A few years ago Nick was looking into eating healthier, and I joined…

Ankit Christmas Tree String Lights

Press Sample of Ankit Christmas Tree String Lights By now most of you should know that I love makeup, fragrance and of course, nail polish. What you might not know is that I also have a love for quirky things. Seriously, Nick can handle my cosmetic obsession (he created this blog for me after all) but one thing that always makes him shake his head a bit is the weird things I buy for it’s quirkiness. When I was approached by Ankit to do a review of a few of their items, I had to jump on it. Their site has a ton of things I would buy in a heartbeat. The first item I’m going to share with you (I’ll have another post up hopefully tomorrow of some other goodies) is the Ankit Christmas Tree String Lights. I know it’s close to Christmas, so don’t worry – they do have other…

Letting Loose & Cozying up with Pure Leaf

Sponsored By Mirum Shopper The months are getting chillier and after a long day, sometimes you just need a nice cup of hot tea to warm you up. If you are in California like I am, then the weather isn’t really sure what’s going on so iced tea is sometimes needed to cool off! I didn’t become much of a tea drinker until I was in my mid 20’s, before that I would only have tea when I had a cold or sore throat. It always helped! Now I drink tea on occasion when I need an afternoon pick me up or something to warm me. Now you can find a variety of loose and bagged teas from Pure Leaf at Ralphs! They come in a variety of both bagged and loose for either hot tea or iced tea. In our house, I’m more of a hot tea drinker, but my…
