Balance, Comfort and Style with the Sustainable Beauty of prANA

Hello everyone! It’s been a minute since my last post. But, I’ve been taking some time to get my life together. No literally, I’ve been getting my life together laughing. I’ve been spending the past few months focusing on traveling and self-growth. So, I couldn’t help but drop in and share the amazing brand that I’ve been blessed to try. prAna is built on the mission of inspiring healthy, active and free-spirited living.

prAna's ultimate goal is to provide sustainable clothing to everyone, and that their clothes can be worn "from city streets to mountain peaks". It's all about being fashionable, comfortable and versatile. That was right up my alley. My life has been all about adventure this year. So, I definitely need some clothes that can go bold with me into the light! On top of that, all of their clothes are made with organic cotton or of hemp. Plus, prAna also uses other recycled materials in their clothes. Sustainability is super important to the planet and me. Check out this video on prAna's commitment to hemp & organic cotton

 

prAna is very committed showing to "showing love" to the planet and prioritizes giving back to underdeveloped communities. For prAna this is core to their business model & it really highlights how special a brand they are. See, why I was so excited to try their clothes laughing. So, let's get to my outfit!

 

I was able to try the White Copa Mika Top (similar)  and the Cobalt Deco Capri Leggings in an XXL. As a woman with hips and thighs, I was a little nervous about how this was going to work out. But, I was pleasantly surprised by how well these pieces hugged my curves.

I fell in total love when I slipped on the Deco Capri leggings. They fit my “playground” (hips and thighs) like a glove. The compression gave me all the feels ever in life.

The White Copa Mika Top is really nice and has a solid tank sewn in to create a smooth look. But, I did find that it didn’t cover my side boob that well. I wear a size H/I bra, so I know it’s not easy to find blouses that can contain “my girls”. But, that wouldn’t stop me from rocking this top. It’s light and super comfortable.

I can’t tell you how excited I was to find out that prAna has trendy and sustainable workout gear that fits plus sizes. I can’t stop wearing this outfit. I’ve already worn it twice since this posted. So, it holds up great through washes. I would totally recommend you check out prAna & to make it that much easier for you to buy something, use my coupon code S17BLPD for 15% off. Click here NOW!

 

Until we meet again!

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
                 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!!
