Amazon Purchases This Month

I think I go through phases where I order a ton of stuff from Amazon and then I don't use it for a while. It's dangerous y'all! Especially with the buy with one click. On products that I am constantly stocking up on, I just click that button an then check my bank account like oops *insert shrugging emoji here.Since I have some plans coming up this summer I wanted to stock up on some fun accessories that I have been eyeing for a while. I mean these jewelry pieces have actually been in my cart for over a month. Also, Omar's birthday and our anniversary is coming up so I picked up some presents from Amazon too (but I'll have to share those later on)! 

What did you buy on Amazon this month? Let me know by commenting down below.

Recent TJ Maxx & Home Goods Finds

I honestly think TJ Maxx is a more dangerous place than Target. I can't believe I just said that, but the truth is TJ Maxx and it's sister stores have some amazing deals. Literally anytime you need something you can always find it at Tj Maxx, Home Goods, Marshalls, etc. I also love Ross and Gabe's. I wanted to spruce up the apartment a bit and when I went shopping I found some amazing deals. I tried to find everything I could, but you know how these websites work, they're not perfect. If something isn't linked, I'll still have it listed but at the end of the list. If you're looking to run some "errands" I say head out to these stores ASAP.

I know these two candles aren't from Tj Maxx, but they are from Target and I just had to share them. The Mountain View candle smells exactly like an Abercrombie & Fitch store and the Piña Verbena candle smells just line a piña colada and this was one that Omar really liked and he never picks out candles so I got it for him :).

Pink Hair, Pink Mules

Have you noticed anything different? I mean it’s pretty obvious . . . I bought pink mules, duh! I raved about another pair of mules back in the fall-time and when I saw these bad boys in the store I knew I had to have them. 

These shoes come in a wide range of colors and textures and this particular pair came from Target. I love the soft pink velvet look and they are such an easy pair to slip on and go.

Oh yeah, and I dyed my hair pink so there’s that. Do you like this look? Leave me a comment down below!

Decorate Your Work Space
If you're a full-time working gal (or guy) like myself, then you most likely know what it's like to sit at a desk all day. Even though I love my job and the days fly by, you still want your desk/cubicle/office to be comfortable, fun and show off some of your personality. I love bringing in a few things to spice up my work space and make me more productive. If you're on the hunt for some fun items keep reading how to make your work space go from drab to fab with just a few key pieces.

Calendars // Calendars are a great way and honestly a must-have accessory in a work space. You can obviously have any type of calendar or agenda that you'd like, but I personally love my little easel calendar from Shutterfly. It's personalized, unique and still professional.

Pictures // You can always make your office a bit more personal with some pictures and unique picture frames. I feel like this is an easy one, but everyone's office is a little different. Some of my favorite frames include this one, this one, and this one. You can also do prints like this one, this one, and this one.

Candles, Wax Warmers and Oil Diffusers // Again, this all depends on your office, but having something that smells good is a great way to make your office or cubicle welcoming.

Pin Boards & White Boards // These items are great for anyone who needs to write a quick message to themselves! These have become so stylish in the past few years, you can always find a unique one versus the classic brown and white ones.

Notepads // This sort of goes with the whole pin and white boards, they're a classic thing to have on your desk, but they've gotten so trendy the past few years that no two look the same. My favorites include this one, this one and this one.

Desk Chairs // This is something that if you can and have the money for, then you should definitely invest in one. I sit at my desk all day and I want to make sure I'm comfortable. You can even get some chair accessories such as a back massager, a throw blanket or a pillow.

These are just a few items that you can use to spruce up your office space! If you have any more recommendations please let me know by commenting down below!

Since I work full time and own a business, it’s important for me to have a schedule throughout the week. Certain things may change throughout the day (depending if I take Oliver on his morning or night walk), but for the most part this is what my daily schedule looks like. I don’t have every minute planned but a typical work day would look something like this. 

My Daily Schedule

The weekends are a whole other story! I never know what my weekends are going to be until Friday night. What does your daily schedule look like? Let me know by commenting down below.

What I Eat In A Day

As a vegetarian I get asked on a daily basis, "What do you eat?" How am I suppose to answer this question? It's an endless combination of possibilities. How does anyone really answer this question? "What do you eat?" It's not like we eat the same meals every day. So hopefully this blog post can give more of an insight as to what I eat on a daily basis and what my grocery list looks like.

My trainer, Coach Brian Vincent, has me on a totally attainable meal plan (blog post on this to come soon) and it has helped a lot. I am the worst kind of vegetarian, because I hate vegetables. I can eat carbs all day long. With his macro diet for me and finding healthier alternatives to every day items, I've found my diet to be completely functional in my lifestyle. Even on days I'm craving Taco Bell. Today, I'm sharing my typical grocery list with you today. This list is just food products and things I tend to buy every week. Also some of my go-to meals throughout the week - even my cheat days!

What was life before Amazon Prime? Any time I need something I always just click my Amazon app because it's the most convenient (and cheapest) option. Even for my birthday bash, I found everything I needed without even trying off of Amazon. I've shared some of my favorite products and designer dupes that are on Amazon, but what are some of my favorite purchases from Amazon? I'm sharing them down below!
