Spring Wish List

February 27, 2019

I've started to pick up some things for our home here and there because adding a touch of spring gets me excited for the upcoming seasonal change. I tend to invest in transitional decor, stuff that I can use throughout the year usually sticking with neutral colors. I've been slowly grabbing items but I'm pretty sure Hearth & Hand's new spring line won't be available until mid to late March.

Look how adorable this Hearth & Hand toy gardening caddy is for all the little gardeners in training who want to help mama out! Both Harlow and Brody love to plant and we had some amazing sunflowers to show for it last year. I've also been loving the scent of sugared lemon lately. I haven't tried this Bath & Body Works candle yet but recently got a Sugar Dusted Lemon one from Kirklands (the 3-wicks are on sale right now for $9.99). It is such a yummy, fresh and clean smell to have wafting throughout the house, you'll love it too!

Spring is almost here guys.. just a few more weeks and we'll all be enjoying the open windows, fresh air and sunshine!

ŪNICO, Fitness + My motivation

February 25, 2019

I'm reallllly trying to hold myself accountable this go round because I have a tendency to fluctuate, especially during the winter months. I'm a pumpkin beer girl and compare myself to a chubby bear that hibernates come fall. I drink, I eat, I get lazy therefor I gain. This time though, I have something big to look forward to.

Jesse and I haven't been away, alone, since our honeymoon back in 2010. We decided that an adults only getaway was well deserved and booked an all-inclusive at a romantic resort on our favorite island, Jamaica. I have goals guys. I want to feel great in those warm waters and of course look great in such an environment too. Who wouldn't?

I've noticed lately that I have daily motivators. Things that in addition to working out, eating healthy and reducing my caloric intake have helped me along the way. I ordered supplements recently and really look forward to my protein. I like having it because, well, it tastes delish and looks pretty, but most importantly it feels damn good that I'm making my body healthy too!  
Pretty packing + healthy sup's is apparently my jam.

Now, stay with me. I know everyone is different. What drives me, might not drive you - but I think it is so important to sometimes have some thing. That being supplements, new workout gear (can we say these white yoga pants I ordered below), cute sports bra or new Nike's - find whatever that thing is that makes you happy and excited to stay on track - then hook onto that shit every. single. day.

Because yes, pretty protein and white yoga pants make me happy and keep me motivated.
So does a hot, tropical get-away in paradise with my very handsome husband. 

What motivates you?
