Now, let’s be honest. Most of us spend majority of our time at work. I mean, we have to make a living right. But, it doesn’t mean you have to go to the office everyday and look at those same boring gray cubicle walls and the boring desk necessities. Even if you have an office with a window, you can always Glam Up your office space a bit. Give a nice touch that is professional but shows a bit of personality….YOU personality.

Special K Parfait!

IMG_5273

I am always on the go. I’m not a morning person so it is hard for me to get up let alone have time for breakfast.

So, to save time and money. I started making my own fruit and yogurt parfaits! I make it at night and put it in the fridge. Then, in the morning I can grab it and go! Plus, isn’t using a mason jar just the cutest thing!

All I did was cut up 4 strawberries into (2 for each layer), 2 tablespoon of blueberries (1 for each layer) poured in your favorite yogurt and lastly add some Special K cereal on top. YUM!

Of course you can add whatever ingredients you like. Have fun with it. ENJOY!

Bible Study/Prayer Binder

IMG_5116

I am so thrilled that I have finally finished making and setting up my binder I will be using for Bible Study and writing down Prayers. I have been on a spiritual journey for almost two years now  and just wanted to make something that I could write down scriptures, my conversations with GOD and prayers for loved ones and the world. And of course I had to make it nice and cute :-) By being able to write down what I am reading in the bible or inspiration I see, I am able to reflect back and refer to things and apply it to my life. I have divided my binder into 5 sections: S.O.A.P, Journal, Prayers, “BLESSON”, and Favorite Verses. Come, take a look inside!

Ready for 2015!

 I have searched high and low for this particular planner. It was sold out everywhere. Luckily, I found it at the Kate Spade Outlet! The planner comes in a bunch of colors. Great for each season of the year in case you like to switch out your planners. I am a “Planner Newbie”. I didn’t realize there was a Planner World out there with people who create so many cool and beautiful planner setups! I have had planners before but after googling planner setups and checking #planneraddicts on Instagram, I was amazed at how creative people can get with their planners. So, I wanted in on the fun! I am a paper lover and love being creative. I figured if I really get into setting up my pages in a creative way I would be more excited about using my agenda.

Chillin Lake Side

I love when I find the perfect thinking spot. I like to take a moment from everyday life and relax somewhere peaceful with beautiful scenery. I make sure I pack a few good reads, a favorite drink and just enjoy the R&R.

Labor Day Style

This post is sort of late (I’m human and the weekend wore me out LOL). Well at least you know I enjoyed myself. The weather here in the PNW (Pacific Northwest)  was a little gloomy but 2 days out of the 4-day weekend were absolutely gorgeous! Of course I had 2 different outfits for Monday. When plans change, so does the outfits honey (wink).

Shopping Tips from a SALE QUEEN

I get asked all the time by people, “How do you find all of these sales?!” or “How did you get that for so cheap?!” First and foremost, I don’t like it unless it’s on sale. (Ooookkkk) Don’t get me wrong, I like to splurge on some items that I want like the next person but, in this economy things seems to be getting more and more expensive but the quality well…lets just say is not what it use to be. Yes, some of your favorite “expensive” brands are being frugal too when it comes to producing their products (the economy has an impact on them as well so don’t be fooled). I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg at your favorite brands or for items you have on your wish list (well if you don’t want to). I want to share with you how I shop sales and get the best bargains on just about anything! *WARNING* Being a “SALE QUEEN” takes patience and perseverance. It’s a jungle out there and you have to be ready to swing from vine to vine (store to store) to scoop up stuff for great prices. Ok, I was being a little dramatic there (LOL). Just keep reading and I will have you prepared for your next shopping trip with money to spare.
