Choose Joy


I received this fabulous tank as a gift, and it was just what the doctor ordered.  I’m going to be honest folks, I’ve been in a funk lately. Overall just feeling glum without much motivation to stick to my daily routine.

I consider myself blessed and honored to be surrounded by people who encourage me to be the best version of myself. I am certain that it is not quite a coincidence that, over Mother’s Day Weekend, my mom’s voice has been singing in the back of my mind repeating “life is all about choices.” Well mummy, thank you for always bringing me back to reality. I plan to Choose Joy today (and hopefully always)!

Shakeology Mug Cake

 How to create a delicious mini cake with a few healthy ingredients, a mug, and your microwave.


What you’ll do:

  1. In a mug, mix Shakeo, baking powder, salt, cocoa, and sweetener
  2. Next, mix in an egg and water/milk
  3. Mix until all dry ingredients are moistened
  4. If you’d like to add a nut butter, put one teaspoon in the center and push it about 1/3 of the way down.  If you’d like to add coconut shavings, simply sprinkle them on top.
  5. Microwave for 90 seconds

The edges should easily pull from the sides when finished.    ENJOY!

Shop online? Here’s a magical unicorn for you!



If you’re anything like me, then you avoid Malls and Outlets like the zombie apocalypse!  There is no sweeter victory than finding a fabulous deal while lying in bed during a Netflix marathon.  Can I get an AMEN?  So, when I discovered ebates, I was ELATED!  This magical cyberland allows you to log in, pick just about any store you’d like, and earn a percentage back on your purchases.  The percentage varies, based on the contract negotiated with each retailer, but who can say no to getting back free money?!?


I was stoked to find that it already listed some of my favorites spending sites: Groupon, Living Social, Target, etc. (can you tell I refuse to pay full price for basically anything?)  My favorite time of year is now the Holidays.  Before I would become physically ill at the thought of barreling through the crowds during the mass hysteria that is Holiday Shopping, but now I get to go shopping from the comfort of my couch for all of my favorite people knowing that I’m getting the best possible deals. The best part is looking forward to the glories of mail day when I open up a “Big Fat Check” for all of my purchases!
