My Favorite Pura Scents

Hi Guys! I ordered a pura device a few months ago & I’ve been testing a lot of their scents to find the best ones! Before I get to the good stuff I just want to point out one of the big reasons I love pura scents is because they’re all clean & safe for pets & people. I always used to use the bath & body works wall plug-ins but they get too strong, they start to make me feel sick & they don’t have clean ingredients. The pura lets you adjust the strength setting, you control it from you phone & you can set timers too which makes it so convenient. Now for the good part all my favorite scents! My top 2 scents have * by them!

Capri Blue Scents :

  • Coconut Santal – notes : vanilla, smoky tobacco, bergamot & sandalwood.
  • Volcano – notes : tropical citrus & sugary notes.
  • Havana Vanilla – notes : hibiscus, lime, coconut & hints of amber.
  • Pineapple Flower – sweet summer scent. notes : pineapple, plum, lemon flower & sugar cane.

Unify Co.

  • Summit – lemon & pineapple leaf, white florals, cedarwood, & moss. *

NEST New York

  • Grapefruit – notes : pink pomelo grapefruit, watery green lily, & coriander blossom.

Barr-Co.

Anthropologie

  • Ambered Topaz – notes : warm cardamom, lavender, cedar wood, sweet amber, dark patchouli, & a hint of pine needle.

High Protein Meals

Hi guys! Today I’m sharing some of the meals I’ve been eating to get ready for summer. I’ve broken them down as breakfast lunch & dinner, but I don’t always eat them that way sometimes I have 2 breakfasts (ex: breakfast tacos & a protein cereal + yogurt parfait for lunch). I haven’t been focusing on exact macros more just high protein. I try to keep lower carbs & fat, but I’m not being so strict that I have no energy & I have a hard time recovering from workouts. I think it’s so important to listen to your body because I’ve found that’s the ONLY way anything is maintainable. I am not super restrictive with certain things normally as long as I’ve got my protein in for the day because that’s what works for me. Don’t be afraid to try different things & make adjustments as you see fit! Just because one thing works for someone doesn’t mean it will work for everyone! You don’t have to be extreme you just have to be consistent.

16g F | 27.2g C | 46.7g P

2 eggs

ex 3 // cereal + yogurt parfait

9g F | 37g C | 28g P

3/4 C non-fat plain Greek yogurt

3/4 C protein cereal (I use the kashi peanut butter one)

16 Journaling Prompts to Build Self-Confidence

Hi babe! Today I’m talking about something that has honestly been life changing for me. Previously I felt very numb and shut off from my feelings, until I started journaling. It allows me to work through things that are on my mind, to ask myself questions and get curious about my feelings. I now feel more in-tune with myself, my desires & goals. I’ve always felt like something was holding me back & now I know there was a lot things I needed to work through & am still working through. Journaling never really sounded like the most fun thing to do with my mind & so many times I’ve turned on a tv show, movie, or YouTube video, really anything to avoid hearing my thoughts. I’m still not perfect with it, but I know I feel better after I journal. I feel more aligned, clear & lighter. I can focus on what’s important & I feel more confident in who I am and has allowed me to trust myself more. It’s almost like a workout for your mind, you hardly ever want to but you know you need to & you’re happy you did after. Journaling can take time to start tapping into yourself again, but I promise if you try to make it a habit you’ll see the results!

Something I love is journal prompts especially when I don’t feel super inspired on my own. Below is a list of journaling prompts that will help you build confidence & help you learn about yourself to get started!

  1. What is something you have done that you are proud of?
  2. What quality do you most admire about yourself?
  3. What is one of your best personality traits?
  4. What is your favorite physical feature?
  5. What is one thing you’re really good at?
  6. When do you feel most confident?
  7. What can you do to make that happen more often?
  8. What makes you feel the least confident in yourself?
  9. Describe what your life would be like if you were more confident. What would you do or how would you act differently?
  10. What does self-love mean to you?
  11. What is something other people frequently compliment about you?
  12. What are 3 limiting beliefs you have about yourself that you need to let go of?
  13. What are 3 empowering beliefs you have about yourself?
  14. Who is someone who inspires you?
  15. What about them inspires you?
  16. What are your biggest goals/dreams?

Buffalo Chicken Ranch Dip

Hi Guys! Today I have another game day dip to share! This one is always the BIGGEST hit & any party I take it to people ask for the recipe which is fitting because that’s where I got it. It’s another very easy recipe which is pretty much a requirement for me on appetizers! Personally I like it how it is, but you can spice it up by adding extra hot sauce or a chopped jalapeño or tone it down with more ranch and less hot sauce.

Prep Time : 10 Minutes

Cook Time : 20 Minutes

What you’ll need :

  • 1 – 12.5oz Can of Chicken
  • 1/2 C Frank’s Red Hot Sauce
  • 1/2 C Ranch
  • 1 – 8oz block of Cream Cheese softened
  • 1 – 8oz Bag of Shredded Cheese (you can use any but I like a cheddar or colby jack).

Directions :

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a bowl mix the cream cheese, hot sauce, ranch, 1/2 bag of shredded cheese & drained can of chicken.
  3. Scoop mixture into a shallow 1-qt baking dish. Top with the remaining shredded cheese.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes or until mixture is heated through, it will be bubbling.
  5. Serve with crackers, chips or cut up veggies.

Pepper Jelly Cream Cheese Dip

Welcome back! Super Bowl Sunday is coming up & I wanted to share my favorite recipe from over the holidays. Let me just tell you this might be one of my favorite things in the entire world, and I’m not exaggerating. I’ve made it a few times since Christmas Eve & my family loves it too. Perfect amount of sweet, not too spicy & the easiest 2 ingredient dip. Don’t be afraid to make this recipe your own, I used 2 ramekins & cut the block of cream cheese in half & used 2 different pepper jellies.

What You’ll Need :

  • Pepp’ricot Preserves Jelly from Pepperlane – you can order it online or find it in local grocery stores. The company that makes it is located in Utah so I’m not sure if they’re only in grocery stores close to Utah, but I have found it in Idaho as well. I’ve seen it at Harmon’s & Ridley’s.
  • Block of Cream Cheese

Instructions :

  1. Pre-Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a ramekin, bowl or baking dish of your choice add the entire block of cream cheese.
  3. Scoop out 1/2 jar (or as much as desired) of the pepper jelly on the top of the cream cheese.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes until cream cheese is soft & pepper jelly is bubbling/melting.
  5. Serve with crackers or chips or your choice, I prefer OG ritz.

It’s literally THAT easy.

Self Care

Hi babes! I want to have an honest conversation about this buzzword, self-care. I feel like I see it everywhere nowadays treat yourself, buy the shoes, take a bath, lay in bed and watch movies all day. Sometimes self-care isn’t at all what we think it is. Self-care is sometimes a way to hide from the inside work we need to do. Sometimes self care is making yourself workout when you don’t want to, going to bed early, eating healthy or drinking water to give yourself energy, organizing and cleaning your home so you feel inspired instead of scattered and even going to therapy to heal.

We spend hours a day scrolling on instagram to numb what we’re feeling. What if self-care was journaling? What if self-care was learning emotional intelligence & checking-in to see how you feel? Testing our limits & getting outside of our comfort zone? What if self-care was to stop running from our problems and face them so we can have meaningful peace in our lives more. The worlds standard for self-help might make you feel good while you’re eating the cake, but leave you with regrets later. Some of these forms of self-help are fleeting, temporary & maybe some of that is okay once in awhile. Is it the most helpful thing we can do though? It seems very surface level to me of how we can actually help ourselves. All of that to say, maybe we’ve been approaching self-care wrong & it’s not always meant to be easy or feel comfortable in the moment.
