May I Present My Favorites?

Hello everyone! First of all I want to start off by saying shame on me for ignoring the blog for the past few weeks – I’ve been busy with life/work/traveling/Tone It Up-ing, but that’s no excuse! I’m making a promise to myself to get back into blogging about the things I like and enjoy because it just makes me happy 🙂

Now that that’s out of the way…MAY FAVORITES!!

I have been waiting all month to share some of my favorites with you all. Some oldies but goodies made it onto the list this month and of course I already have some great things saved up for June favorites…but you’ll have to wait for those! Without further adieu, I present to you, my favorites for the month of May:

Eat, Drink, and BE HEALTHY!

 If we’re being honest, no one enjoys talking about stomach issues.

But if we are REALLY honest, we have to acknowledge they exist.  Otherwise, we could be staring down the barrel of a heavily loaded gun.

I only say this due to my own experience which seemed to drag on for an eternity.  Really it was just a year, but when you feel terrible, can’t find answers, lose weight, and start believing you’re going crazy… a year feels like an eternity and then some.

I am NOT a doctor, this has just been my own personal experience, and none of my experience includes medication.

March (Madness) Favorites

Oh March Madness!  How your name suits you… Thanks alot Duke & KU!  #bitterbydefault

All basketball disappointments aside– I will admit I have a little madness of mine own, though, don’t we all?!  And I’ve come to the realization that you just gotta OWN THAT ISH, my friend!  It’s part of your passion, your quirks, it’s all a part of who-you-are, what makes you so incredibly unique and valuable and imperfectly perfect!

My madness just happens to be super girly and not always very cost effective in my life.

Yeah, yeah, banking institution, you can stop sending me fraud alerts every week — I really am shopping THAT much.

But once in a while, after countless (read: thousand$) of dollars, you find your Holy Grails!  And since we’re so blessed to live in a day and age of convenience, we have Luvocracy to track all our “luvs” and make it simple (and at times, cheaper) to have a one-stop-shop right in your own living room!

Luvocracy is simply Pinterest with the ability to shop/buy directly from your “luvs” without ever having to track anything down, do any comparison shopping (hey, I’m a little cheap like that — don’t judge me), and really have it all (and delivered!) straight to the door of your adorable humble abode.  And if the order is messed up, well, #firstworldproblems.
