I’m a huge salad lover and pack my lunch to work everyday. I got recommended this Dole Chopped Salad Kit from a coworker and I’m obsessed. I despise soggy lettuce and this mix is far from that. Always crunchy and fresh. I don’t use the bacon it comes with but the sunflower seeds are delicious. The dressing isn’t that bad but not really my style. I’m more of a vinegarette kind of girl. Anyway Dole made a bunch of different flavors of different mixes so there’s one for everyone. I get mine at shoprite.com and love when they have a sale 2 for $5!
The latest skin care obsession is the infamous black mask. A friend of mine found this one by PILATEN. It’s a deep cleansing purifying peel off mask and removes black heads. Apply a thick layer to your face wait 15-20 minutes and peel off. I got mine at harmons.com.
I recently purchased a set of Vacuum Sealed Ziplock Bags. I needed better storage for my maternity clothes and Jameson’s clothes as he grows out of them. I couldn’t believe how many articles of clothes I got in 1 bag. When sealed the bags are extremely compact and can be stored anywhere. I plan on using more bags to switch out my wardrobe from spring/summer to fall/winter once we move and get settled. I got mine at amazon.com
What a great way to start the week! People have asked me in the past don’t you need meat in your diet? What do you eat for protein? Aren’t you still hungry? I did a 21 day Vegan Challenge a few years ago and I loved it! I did my research to find out what I could eat to replace the nutrients found in animal products. I found out that 8oz. of broccoli actually has more protein than 8oz. of beef. Anyway it’s a personal choice of what you choose to put in your body and you need to do what makes you feel good. After having Jameson I tend to want meat and chocolate more often than before I got pregnant. I believe in balance. If I’m in the mood for meat I have it. If I’m not I don’t. Simple as that. Tonight I’m making Spicy Shrimp Marinara over Spaghetti Squash. Recipe will be up on my Adult Recipe page soon.
If you have been searching for an easy to apply liquid liner look no further! Revlon Colorstay Skinny Liquid Liner is by far the best one I’ve worked with. It is super easy to apply, stays on all day and comes in green, blue, brown and black. Also I have finally found a great cheap and chic mascara. L’Oréal Voluminous Million Lashes mascara is amazing! I apply 2 heavy coats and it doesn’t flake at all. I purchased both products at ulta.com but they can also be found at your local pharmacy.
After work every Saturday I get my butt to the gym. No matter how tired I am from being up with the baby in the middle of the night or a busy day at the salon I make it happen. But today I made the mistake of not washing my face before I left work. I ended up stopping at Walgreens and grabbed these face wipes and I’m obsessed!! I have super sensitive skin and was definitely a little worried especially going to the gym and sweating after wiping my face with a foreign product but I’m extremely satisfied! I will be keeping a pack in my gym bag and I suggest you do the same. I plan on checking out and giving all the Simple Skin Care products a try. simpleskincare.com
After work today I prepped Jameson some new combinations of food for next week. Im always brainstorming on whats age appropriate for him and try to come up with tasty unique purees. I have so many more ideas and can’t wait to share them all with you and your little one. I love my Green Sprout Baby Food Storage Containers too. They wash well and hold up to 4oz.
