A Glam Surprise + Spiralizer giveaway

Hi guys 🙂 How are ya? I’m so glad ya’ll liked the post on stress management this morning <3 It is really easy to feel overwhelmed and stressed (especially when you’re plate is full), but it’s comforting to know there are many things you can do to fight it!

Fun news: my little blog was featured once more on the fabulous Glamour Vitamin G blog today! It was a lovely surprise- thank you, Sarah! 🙂 (*Waves hi* to the Glam-azing new readers!!)

Today has been pretty chill – I hit up the gym for a little treadmill sesh and then my cousin and I hit up the mall.


I did some damage –it’s rare that I get to go to an actual mall (Valdosta’s is very sad… unless you need a leather jacket with a cartoon character on it, then you’re in luck), so I lived it up 😉

Snacked on a Larabar whilst helping my cousin find a prom dress:


Some other recent eats:

Take-out from Cedar (a Cedar salad with lots of veggies, mint vinaigrette and a side of beautiful hummus)

salad and hummus

About a thousand unpictured mini Dove dark chocolate eggs 😉

Smoothie (cherries, banana, protein, maca, chia seeds and almond milk)


(Some of ya’ll have asked if I brought the Vitamix to Orlando.. of course I did! Sings: “I can’t liiiiiiiiive… if living is without the Vitamix. I can’t LIIIIIIIVE…”. Ok, I can live, but it certainly makes life easier)

Millet bread with almond butter, cinnamon and nanner (with mocha macchiato-flavored coffee)



I’m excited because tonight I’m meeting Ashley and Ryan for tea and a power yoga class- be back with the recap in the morning 🙂

Have a wonderful night!
