So, its been awhile since I have been on here but I've been residing in Marco Island Florida for the last three weeks. Toes in the water, bum in the chair... and a good book in my hands. That's a perfect morning in my eyes. A great read that I came across is called There's More To Life Than This by Theresa Caputo.

Theresa Caputo, a medium (someone who can communicate with those that have crossed over) from Long Island NY is a NY Best Times writer and star of her own show Long Island Medium which airs on TLC. This book helps those struggling with the loss of a loved one or even those who need help finding and connecting with God. She explains what it is like to have your soul leave the physical body and shares inspiring stories. A must read for everyone out there. Hugs xoxo

I am completely OBSESSED over this bag!! I've been looking, for what seems like a lifetime, for a makeup bag that is big enough to carry everything I need, and today I finally found it! It is called the Train Case Duo from Victoria's Secret at only $48.

So, the pictures above are one part of the duo pack. I love the little detailed gold writing they add to them. This bag is small, yet big enough to carry my 4 step face wash routine, while still fitting in the second part of the duo.

This is the second part! I love how big it is to fit all my makeup in. There are 2 zippers to this, the top zipper holds all your brushes and includes a flap so all the makeup does not get everywhere while the bottom zipper is a huge area to hold all my makeup. Like I said above, the little bag fits into this bag perfectly! I am so excited to use this on vacations this summer! Hugs on you!!

I come from a very religious background and a ritual is to attend church every Sunday. My all time favorite bible verse comes from Romans.

~"Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction and faithful in prayer" Romans 12:12~

I can confidently believe that when in a time of hurt and pain and a feeling that it will never fade away, God is looking down on you which is leaving us with a comforting feeling that the feeling of pain is only temporary and the power of prayer and patience is so important.

My current obsession... strawberry chia seed drink! While in Maryland this week I took a quick stop at Trader Joe's grocery store. Trader Joe's sells all natural food and drinks on a easy budget. While walking past the cold section I spotted this drink and had to get it! This drink contains only three ingredients (apple juice, strawberry puree and chia seeds) but is packed with tons of nutrients and benefits! In this simple 16oz drink its contains 4,000mg of Omega 3, 25% Vitamin C, no artificial colors or flavors, no preservatives, and pasteurized by using the flash method (keeps all the nutrients during packaging). The consistency of this drink is very thick, but you will have a mouth full of seeds in every gulp. This is a definite store to stop at if you ever drive past one!

After 4 years in a row of having a Valentine, this year was the first time I was single. After a typical Tuesday work day I came home to homemade chocolate covered strawberries my mama had made and gifts to follow. To top off the night, my best friend Lindsay, you'll see a lot of her, took me out to Shogun for a dinner. It was a different Valentine's Day, but I wouldn't want it any other way. Cheers!
