BJ’s Wholesale Club Makes Shopping & Saving Simple

 

Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a great week. Can you believe it’s almost summertime? To me summer begins June 1st, so I’m truly in countdown mode. With it being summer, that means there are going to be plenty of hot days & holidays to keep me super busy with family & friends.

So, to help me plan ahead for the awesome stream of beach days, barbecues and trips that are coming up; I’ve started shopping again at one of my favorite places ever, BJ’s Wholesale Club. They have everything I need to keep all of the demanding diets in my household fed, while not taking all of my money laughing.

I know you’re probably thinking there are only three people, including myself in my household. But, my people can EAT laughing. Plus, my sister is a vegetarian & my mom a.k.a “the old lady” is super picky about food. Plus, we like to ensure that she has lots of organic food to ensure she’s being as kind to her system as possible. She’s diabetic and has conditions related to it that make it imperative she’s eating quality food.

BJ’s Wholesale Club has an extensive selection of organic food. It’s always great and a tremendous cost-savings to be able to get Coconut Oil, Coconut Sugar, etc. in bulk at great prices. These are everyday staple items in our house, so they get used pretty quickly. On top of that, they have a large selection of vegetarian products. They have everything from Gardein to Morningstar. I never have to sacrifice the brands my family love for them to eat healthy, and buying them in bulk cuts my trips to the grocery store by 50%. Can you say #winning?

On top of all of the quality food, they also have my bulk pricing on alkaline water or my favorite seltzer by Polar. Being able to get the latest Polar Seltzer makes my heart sing. They also have an extensive beer and wine section, including an attached liquor store. BJ’s Wholesale Club makes my life easy by being able to get everything I need from one store.

Plus, they save me time and money by having amazing gas prices. My car takes premium fuel, and I’ve save over $.25 cents a gallon by going to be BJ’s Wholesale Club for that too. BJ’s Wholesale Club makes saving simple. So, don’t miss your chance to try out BJ’s Wholesale Club for your shopping needs. Click here to sign up for a free three-month membership & watch the savings pile up!

Forever Broken: My Mental Health Journey

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to hop on and share a video with you. Mental Health is a topic we don't talk enough about. I hope my journey can help you or someone you know. Thank you Brittany Minor a.k.a "Clumps of Mascara for inspiring me to share. Mental Health isn't a 31 day conversation, this is a lifetime journey and we all need to support each other. 

 

 

Here are the tips that I shared in the video. They've really helped me on the journey & I pray they help you too. 

1) Write it down- Sharing your feelings on paper can help you when saying them is just not an option.

2) Don't be judgemental- We all struggle and we can learn from each other. 

3) Change the narrative- Understand the power of your words and thoughts. Don't forget you have the power to change your life. 

4) Pray constantly or find your faith- My faith in God grounds me. 

5) Forgive yourself- It's not always going to be perfect. But, that's ok. Understand that these momentary setbacks or issues are temporary. They only become permanent if you let it be that way. 

 

Finally, be good to yourself. You're so worth it! Mental Health is a daily fight and I'm here with you. Until we meet again!

Elevated Cinco De Mayo Celebrations with Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar

**This is a sponsored post. This opportunity was provided to me by The Niche Network and all opinions expressed are my own**

 

Hi everyone! It’s been a long time. I shouldn’t have left you, without a quick post to get you through. That’s my apology for taking so long to give you a new post & my quick display of love for Timbaland and Aaliyah smile. Good music always soothes my soul & is definitely putting me in the mood to tell you about this awesome experience I had last night.

Last night I went to a media event hosted by Flemings Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar in Tampa to announce their partnership with Tequila Herradura on an ultra-premium one-of-a-kind $100 Margarita to commemorate Cinco de Mayo. Now, before you focus on the price. Let me tell you about this very elevated Margarita.

 

Flemings Margarita
                                           Margarita Heaven :-)

First, this is a Margarita like no other. Flemings Margarita features premium liquor, including Tequila Herradura Suprema and Grand Marnier Centenaire. On top of that it’s served in a keepsake Baccarat Diamant Highball glass. It’s the epitome of luxury from the first pour to the first sip. It’s definitely the perfect drink for an elevated one-of-a-kind Cinco de Mayo.

Herradura Tasting Station
                         Some of the finest Tequila I've ever had.

 

This Margarita is being featured on the Fleming’s Steakhouse & Wine Bar menu beginning May 4th- May 6th. So, make reservations here and have an elevated Cinco de Mayo.

                 Tequila Herradura and Baccarat, the perfect combination.

 

Until we meet again! Cheers!

Sweet and Healthy Indulgences with Kemps Yo2 Frozen Yogurt

 

Hi everyone! If you know me, you know I love great food. It’s one of my main passions in life. Well, I’m about to hip you to a new “gem” that I just added to my “food crown”. I have begun a sordid love affair with Kemps Healthier Indulgence Yo2 Frozen Yogurt, and it’s serious. I’m getting a chance to review this new line for them. But, let me be clear, this love is real, true and honest.

Kemps Healthier Indulgence Yo2 Frozen Yogurt is made with premium milk and yogurt with no high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors or artificial growth hormones. Then, they use natural flavors and mix-ins to create the most amazing flavors. NO high fructose corn syrup! NO artificial flavors! NO artificial growth hormones!

Kemps Healthier Indulgence Yo2 Frozen Yogurt comes in several amazing flavors. They have Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge, Cold Brewed Coffee, Mudslide, Raspberry Cheesecake, Salty Caramel Cookie Crunch and Very Vanilla. It was super easy to find at my local Winn-Dixie, and they had all of the flavors in stock. So, I choose Raspberry Cheesecake and Mudslide.

 

In my house food is “community property”. So, I had to make sure the flavors would be cool with “the other chick & old lady” laughing. Plus, anything that is healthy is a win for us. All of us our watching our waistlines in hopes of getting “Summer 17” fine, and we are eating healthy or bust to get there. So, Kemps Healthier Indulgence Yo2 Frozen Yogurt is the perfect fit. It’s creamy and decadent, without blowing our diets.

Make sure you check it out at your local stores. Come on it’s time to get decadent and fine together. Until we meet again!!

My case is serious, and I’m really trying to focus. That’s why I thought it would be great to do a quick post about springing forward.
