Hi friends! I just wanted to share a quick look on the blog today. I am so excited about spring and am loving these mint green Motto Jeggings paired with these adorable black strappy heels. The jeggings do great things for your bum ladies so jump on this wagon and get yourself a pair. They are also fab because you can pair them with EVERYTHING. You can dress them up, or you can dress them down!

Because I work from home, I look like a homeless person 95% of the time. Because I am so accustom to wearing my pajama pants and robe most of the day, I am used to the luxury of comfort. I don’t have to compromise comfort for fashion with these wonderful Jeggings. #blessed.

I took a few shots to show you these awesome finds. (side note: it was BUTT cold when we were taking these pictures hahah!)

If you scroll to the bottom you will find pictures of the leggings and shoes- if you click directly on the pictures, it will take you directly to the site where you can buy them!

Happy shopping! Stay comfy!

YOU GUYS! I have found the most delicious cereal bars! It’s not just any old cereal bar, it’s healthy! Quest Cereal bars are all  packed with 12 grams of protein and they are only 110 calories. Don’t even get me started on how mother lovin delicious they are. I could eat 5 in one siting people. It’s hard to find a protein bar that’s both nutritional and yummy. They also leave a great aftertaste.

Now that i’m back from California, I am back on the gainz train! I need to look rockin for my upcoming trip to Canada in June! I can trust Quest to satisfy my sweet tooth without worrying about what i’m putting into my body. Unlike other cereal bars, Quest has more protein, and way less sugar and carbs. Did I also mention the amazing taste of Quest?! I was able to conveniently purchase the Quest Cereal bars from my local Vitamin Shoppe.

Hello Fresh

March 17, 2017

Hello 4

Hey everyone! I am currently in California soaking up the sun. We have been staying in a beautiful house on the island or Coronado. Before coming to California I was eating to healthy and I was working out everyday. As soon as I got to California it all went out the window! It’s so hard to eat healthy and go to the gym while on vacation. Does anyone else have this problem?

Before going on this glorious vacation I had the opportunity to try Hello Fresh. Oh my gosh, Talk about convenient. When signing up, I was able to pick a customized plan, and schedule when I want the meals delivered to my house! They will deliver your HelloFresh box to your doorstep at a time and day of your choosing. How wonderful is that?!

You guys- I was so excited when I saw my Hello Fresh box on my door step. Everything was packaged so beautifully. All of the meat had ice around it to keep it cool and fresh. Each box contains all of the ingredients to make the meals, making it extremely convenient. Each meal comes with a step-by-step recipe to follow which makes it a stress free experience.

I am so pleased with my experience with Hello Fresh. They make it so easy to make gourmet meals from home. If you want to try Hello Fresh for yourself use code “macmac35” for $


35 off your first box!

Thanks for reading 🙂 xoxo

SkinnyMint Teatox

March 9, 2017

20170303_222827

Hey all! I feel like this week has been a breeze! The countdown is on for my trip to San Diego! T-minus 3 days until I am basking in the glorious sun, while lounging on the sandy beaches of Coronado. I wish I could take you all along with me!

My diet this week has been on point! I have gone to the gym everyday, and just about killed myself on the elliptical. Sometimes I wonder how I will possibly accomplish my workout. I then think about myself in a bathing suit, and that gives me all the motivation I need to finish. Haha! I love the concept of believing you can accomplish something, and actually doing it! When someone says “nothing tastes better than skinny”, it’s SO true. I don’t think that statement is saying “if you’re not skinny, you’re not beautiful or good enough.” To me it has a deeper meaning. Their is a certain kind of confidence that comes from living a healthy lifestyle. I have seen many aspects of my life improve by changing my diet, and exercising 5 days a week.

Because I will be traveling a lot this summer, I wanted to do all I could to make sure I looked my best. I got the SkinnyMint Teatox to do a total detox of my bod. It’s a 2 step program that lasts 28 days. Every morning I will drag myself out of my warm bed, put my robe on, and put a cup of water in the micro to get it hot hot hot. I will then put the tea bag in to steep, and get ready for my day while I drink my yummy morning boost . Every other night I will drink the Night cleanse. Let me just tell ya- It will clean you OUT. Lol. I love that the tea tastes fresh and fruity. I look forward to drinking my tea as opposed to dreading the tea everyday. That to me is super important to me. If I am going to spend money on a product, I want to be able to enjoy it.

I love that SkinnyMint is created with all-natural ingredients that actually work to detoxify your body. I have noticed that since starting the Teatox, all of my bloat is gone. I have a flat tummy, and I am so excited to jump into my bathing suit with all the confidence in the world! What a great way to kick off your summer body!

Pop Smile

March 2, 2017

Howdy Everyone! I hope everyone has had a fabulous week! I can’t Believe that it’s March already! Where has the time gone?! Summer is approaching and I am trying to improve myself in all aspects. I have jumped on the gainz train, and am slowly working towards achieving a fit and healthy lifestyle.

As I have made various goals in this new year, I have found myself wanting to not only improve the success of my business, personal life, and overall outward appearance, I have been putting more focus on positive thinking. As I have moved forward in this journey, I have found that I am so much happier. Someone wise once told me that “Our thoughts shape our reality”. I have come to know that very statement to be true. We are able to achieve anything we want through our thoughts! What an amazing realization that is.

As I have continued going to the gym and changing my diet, I have noticed many changes not only in my body, but in the way that I feel. I have a greater desire to get ready in the morning, as opposed to staying in my sweats or bathrobe. I have had more of a desire to improve other aspects of my appearance as well.

There is a quote that I love. It says “Smile in the mirror. Do that every morning, and you’ll start to see a big difference in your life” -Yoko Ono

Every couple of years I become a little self conscious about my teeth due to them yellowing over time. Recently I have started to use the amazing Pop Smile Ultimate Whitening Kit. I am blown away with how easy and quick it is to use.

I find that it’s a total drag to go all the way to the dentists office to get my teeth professionally whitened. Not to mention the arm and leg it costs to get it done. Pop Smile has allowed me to whiten my teeth from the comfort of my home. With my busy schedule and hectic life, It has been extremely convenient to have such flexibility.

Just like most woman out there, I love pretty things! I am not only impressed with the overall system and process of the Whitening Kit, I am head over heels for the packaging. Opening the box was like Christmas morning. Pop Smile brought excitement to teeth whitening with their vibrant colors and awesome design. Included in every kit are step by step instructions that are easy to follow on how to use the system.

I tend to have a lot of sensitivity in my teeth whenever I have them whitened. I know that getting your teeth whitened after a bad experience can be a total turn off. I’ve gotta tell ya- Pop Smiles Peroxide- free formula allows you to have a pain free experience. I was pleasantly surprised when I took a a drink of water and experienced no pain or sensitivity. Pop Smile truly delivers on every level.

Thanks so much for reading! Keep Smiling! 🙂

New Year, New Me: From “Diet” to “Live it”

February 20, 2017

Processed with VSCO with e5 preset

Hey Everyone! I apologize for being MIA for the past couple of weeks. I have been really focusing on my goals for this upcoming year, and really committing to achieve them. I made this giant dream board of everything that I want to accomplish. For years- one of my New Years resolutions has been to lose weight and get in shape. Year after year I jump on the wagon and quickly fall off. I go to the gym for a week at a time and I soon get discouraged because my healthy eating soon turns into not so healthy eating. I have tried so many fad diets, trying to get skinny quick. I feel like my weight loss journey has been a giant roller coaster with many loops and bumps.

I have always thought that “going on a diet” or working my Arse off at the gym would change the way I felt and looked. Recently I have had an awakening. What if I tuned my “Diet” into a “Live it” Instead of going back and forth about eating healthy and falling off the gains train over and over again- What If I could completely change my mindset. Getting healthy and in shape is not about what new diet your on, or about how many times you fall and have to get back up. It’s all about changing your lifestyle. I have made an executive decision that I will NO longer be on a diet! I will forever be on a LIVE IT. I am choosing to live a healthy lifestyle so that I can achieve my fitness goals and feel more confidant in my skin. It’s not about how many pounds I can lose in a certain amount of time- to me it’s about the journey. Taking it one day at a time is key. Focusing on the things that I am doing right everyday and working on the things I need to improve on. By choosing to Live it, I am focusing on making healthy lifestyle changes that will LAST.

For the past two weeks I have been so dedicated at going to the gym every morning. I typically don’t go so early, because I have a hard time digesting breakfast in the morning. However- since I started drinking my Vitality Blend, I have so much energy and my stomach doesn’t get upset when I do intense cardio. It’s the perfect breakfast meal replacer because it’s so quick to make and there is NO mess! It also helps your cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar as well.

I have not stepped foot inside a gym for the past year. To say it was intimidating is a huge understatement. It can be difficult to walk into a gym and feel like you don’t belong (even if you totally need to be there lol) I had a hard time feeling comfortable at first because I felt like people were judging me, or thinking that I was not in shape, etc. For all the people who have ever thought this, DON’T!! You can totally do it! Once you have your beats in, walk into that gym and own it! Once you start working out, you will feel so much better and you will be one step closer to making this amazing lifestyle change.

I have THE biggest sweet tooth. I love anything that has sugar in it. One of the hardest things about changing my diet, is not indulging in sweets. I often get tempted with cookies and cake at the store, and all I want to do is say “screw it all” and gorg on everything I can get my hands on! However- that would leave me feeling awful and in the end wouldn’t be worth it.

Lately I have found something that completely satisfies my sweet tooth, while providing nutrients and protein to my body. Viance Brownie Bites are only 100 calories but taste like they are from the heavens! They are so chewy and have little chucks of chocolate throughout. It is the perfect snack to hold me over until my next meal.

I am grateful for companies that I can count on to help me with my lifestyle changes. I am excited for the journey ahead in becoming healthier and becoming more fit.

Viance will be offering a 50% off discount for first time subscription buyers of Vitality Blend and Brownie Bites.

Favorite products from Moroccanoil

February 5, 2017

20170131_232145

Hey everyone! I wanted to take some time to share some of my favorite products from Moroccanoil. I am a huge fan of natural based products, and wanted to share these amazing finds! Moroccanoil products have high contents of antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and vitamin E. They not only benefit your hair, but also your skin!

The body butter pictured above is pure magic! It’s everything you could ever want. Rich, thick, creamy, and long lasting. The Shea butter and antioxidant-rich argan oil leaves your skin feeling hydrated and baby soft. This body butter absorbed perfectly into my skin, leaving behind nothing but a fresh scent! Did I mention how absolutely beautiful the packaging is!? Keep scrolling to find out more 🙂

 When I got my hair bleached a couple months back, it was left dry, damaged, and lifeless. When I tried the Moroccanoil Treatment, it changed everything! After I used the treatment, my hair not only felt soft, but looked so shiny! I live in South Dakota. Humidity levels are crazy! The treatment has helped control the frizziness of my hair all day. Im on my way to gaining my healthy hair back!

Whenever I hear the words “shower milk” I think silky soft. The formula of this product most definitely delivers. I love the fresh scent and the consistency of the creamy lather. A little goes a long way people!

At first I didn’t think I would be a fan of the Dry Body Oil. Boy was I wrong! The application process is super easy, and the oil leaves your skin feeling so refreshed. Moments after you spray it on, it dries completely. One of the things I loved most about this product, is the convenience. If I am in a hurry after I get out of the shower, I won’t have time to apply body butter all over myself. The application of the dry body oil allows me to gain all of the benefits of the body butter in half the time!

I love a good hand cream. Something not too greasy, that has a light fresh scent. This is great for throwing in your bag and using as necessary. When I am traveling, my hands get super dried out. It’s nice to have a trusted hand cream that I know and love to keep my hands moisturized all day!

As most of my followers know- I have super sensitive skin. I am extremely prone to breakouts, and I am very apprehensive about trying any new products in fear of new acne appearing. After I washed my face, I applied a couple drops of the Pure Argon Oil into my hands. I lightly massaged it into my face and I couldn’t believe how soft if made my skin. It absorbed right in! I was so shocked to find that it didn’t leave my skin looking oily or greasy. I also found that my makeup application turned out better after using the argon oil. This is by far one of my favorite products.

After I get out of the shower I feel like I am pampering myself. These products are of the highest quality. I am so in love with how they make me feel and the improvement I have seen in my skin.  Click Here to spoil yourself, or for someone in your life who needs spoiling 🙂 Everyone deserves to feel pampered!

Processed with VSCO with q8 preset

Hi everyone! It has been the craziest past couple of weeks! I wanted to get this blog post up a week ago, however, due to the craziness of life I have not been able to share until now. I have been so excited to share the amazing cause behind Pods of Promise.

Pods of Promise is an online jewelry boutique with a goal to create empowered woman of the future. They do this by helping young girls stay in school. As a company they have a mission to sponsor 10,000 girls in India, and Uganda to overcome societal, material and learning challenges that might prevent them from getting the education they deserve. With every single purchase that someone makes, Pods of Promise donates 40% of their profits to help keep these young girls in school.

I feel so grateful to have been born into a situation and home where I was able to get a good education and to have many opportunities to progress. 17 million girls around the world from ages 5-11 are expected to never have gone to school. I am so grateful to companies like Pods of Promise who are doing their best in trying to make a difference.

Why not buy beautiful accessories while helping make a difference as well? To learn more information about this wonderful cause visit https://www.podsofpromise.com/ or click Here

I have been a fan girl of Tay Tay Swift from the very beginning. So as you can probably guess, when I turned 22 I was so excited! My sweet mama, who is AH-MAZE-ING at everything she does, made this beautiful rosette cake. Add some macaroons, chocolate and rock candy, and you’ve got my kinda party! These floating flowers were super easy to put together and the backdrop is layered wrapping paper!

Enjoy! Thanks for stopping by!

Le’ Aura

November 17, 2016

dsc_0761

For anyone who knows me, you know that I lOVE handmade bathing products. LOVE THEM. I would take a bath every single day if I could. Le’Aura delivered a truly pampering experience. Today I woke up not feeling so hot. I sat down at my desk and worked for a few hours too long. I felt like total poop on a stick. I decided that I needed a break! After 10 long minutes of the bath tub filling up, I sprinkled in my Sangria rose Bath Milk. By Golly you guys- It smelled like heaven all up in that bathroom! I wanted to sprinkle the whole package in, but I resisted so that I could save this sweet smelling crack for another day.

While waiting for the scorching hot bath water to cool down (I forgot to put the cold faucet on. oops) I applied my Tea tree and Coffee Facial scrub. Talk about Yummy! My skin felt so moisturized and soft. I then relaxed in my glorious tub while watching Netflix. You can say it was a productive hour and a half.

After leaving the tub, I applied my sugar and spice Silk body lotion. People- I smelled like Christmas. Words don’t describe how wonderful I felt.

Please go check Le’ Auras wonderful products! Click HERE to shop their products.

Thanks so much for reading! Now go relax and take a bath!
