A Personal Health Plan with Arbonne Essentials

As you might know, I signed up to be an Arbonne Independent Consultant a few months ago because I loved their products so much. Most people know them as a skincare and cosmetics company – the home-show that I do includes an entire facial! But they also carry an entire life of healthcare products that I was super excited to try out. I finally got

Party All Night

What a busy weekend!  Friday was spent just cleaning the house and doing homework.  Saturday was busy, busy getting ready for my friend Ida from college to come in for a visit.  She was only staying the night but it was bound to be loads of fun.  She only lives about 2.5 hours away and we’ve never really spent the weekend together (here or at

Weekend Musings

I blogged last week about my new Lunch Blox and so far, so good!

And you can see, I didn’t pack a salad in the salad Blox but rather a “burrito bowl” as I’ll call it.  By using this container, I could keep the lettuce separate so it wouldn’t get soggy.  It worked well though I packed the wrong ratios and am trying

Lots of Girl Time

It’s the weekend!  Well, for me anyway.  Today is a Friday class schedule at school and I don’t have classes on Fridays so Woohoo!  The plans for the next 5 days are lots and lots of homework and lots of housework.  I also plan on hitting the gym a lot with Rob.  Other than that, we have nothing to do!  No Thanksgiving dinner plans either.

Week in Pictures & Paleo Chocolate Mug Cake

I just feel like babbling today so I’m just going to share the pictures I’ve taken all week (bonus recipe is at the bottom!)

First, our garden is doing great! Check out those squash plants!! They aren’t growing up the fence like we wanted by the watermelon are so I guess they are spacing themselves out accordingly? I am really excited how

Kona Kase Review

Last week, I was super excited when I received my first Kona Kase in the mail!  Through a partnership with Fitfluential, I received the Kona Kase for free for the purposes of reviewing it on my blog.  All opinions expressed are my own honest thoughts.

First, let’s do the run down of what Kona Kase is all about:

It is $15 per
