Happy 2019!! It has now been 2 years without using my daily medication. I am so proud of how far I have come from since first starting daily medication back in 2014. In 2018, I did not use my rescue medication once! Of course, I […]
We are back again for another Monthly Favorites! As I say this all of the time, I seriously cannot believe that we’re already in October. I have some great picks for this month with food, makeup products, and a book recommendation! Hope you all enjoy this month’s favorites!
Mozzarella ‘n Marinara ruffles
I tried these purely on accident. I was at my friends house watching old episodes of The Office on Netflix, when we both decided we were hungry. We were meeting up with our other friends later so, we decided to go for some snack foods. My friend went to her kitchen and came back with some ruffles and pretzels. Thinking that I was eating regular ruffles, I absentmindedly put a few into my mouth. Right then the taste of mozzarella sticks and marinara sauce with seasoning filled my mouth. I quickly looked at the bag confused to find that that’s exactly what is was. It was good! I couldn’t believe that I actually enjoyed them. I would highly suggest to give these a try!
All Nighter Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray by Urban Decay
My sister has had this setting spray for a while now and I really enjoy using it (thanks Mia) but, I had only used it a hand full of times. When I found out it was on sale at Ulta, I had to purchase one for myself. I have started using it a lot more now that I have a bottle of my own and I love it! It’s lightweight and smells so good! This product is advertised as keeping your makeup put for up to 16 hours. Though I haven’t tested that out yet, I definitely will!
Snow Kissed By M.J. Padgett
I found this incredible book while at Barnes and Noble one day looking for a present for my a close family friend’s daughter. Like me, she enjoys reading and I thought a book would be the perfect gift. The artwork of this book caught my eye so, I picked it up and read the bottom of the front cover where it reads “The immortal Grimm Brothers’ Guide To Sociopathic Princesses Volume One”. I was immediately intrigued, so I brought it home to read for myself before giving the book as a gift. It ended up taking only a couple of hours to read as I was so enthralled and couldn’t put it down. It is very well written and you never know what’s coming next.
This book focuses on the Grimm Brother’s story Snow White and takes an unexpected dark turn on the well-known and loved fairy tale. I had so much reading it, that I ended up going back to the book store and purchasing a new one for my family friend for her birthday. I cannot wait until the rest come out!

August has been an amazing time! I have discovered some great things this month that have easily become my favorite in the month of August. So, naturally I thought I’d share with all of you! Television Anne with an “E” While flipping through my brother’s […]
Summer is right around the corner and nothing tastes better on these hot summer days than a delicious, light, and tasty Summer Orzo Pasta Salad! I find inspiration for my recipes at places like the pre-made foods section at my local grocery store and restaurant […]
As most (if not all) of you know, I am a coffee addict. My go-to is Starbucks because it’s the closet coffee shop to my house, there’s one basically on every corner, plus, I have a gold card (oops).
Since I’ve been drinking coffee, especially Starbucks for so long, I have acquired some tips and tricks to save you money while you’re there!
Get a larger cup if you’re just getting a regular coffee.
I don’t know about you, but every time I order a regular coffee I hate having to pour some of my coffee out to be able to add my half and half. I discovered that if I get the cup a size bigger that I’m getting (for instance, if I’m buying a tall, I’d ask to have my tall coffee in a grande cup), I don’t have to ask for room or pour any of my drink out to add cream and sugar.
Order a triple espresso with the additive you want.
Instead of purchasing a tall vanilla latte, I order a triple espresso with 3 pumps of vanilla in a grande cup (if I get iced I add a little extra ice because I like extra ice) and pour in the half and half myself. It saves you 80cents and you’re getting the same exact drink for less. (a triple espresso with 3 pumps of vanilla is $3.15 and a tall vanilla latte is $3.95).
Tip: You can also get up to 4 pumps of the flavor for the same dollar amount of 1 pump of a flavor. I think that 3 is the perfect amount of flavoring in the drink.
Order a chai tea instead of a chai tea latte.
You want a chai tea but don’t want to pay so much? Order a chai tea (in a larger cup) and like above, add your own milk! A Grande Chai Tea Latte is $4.45 whereas a Grande (in a Venti cup) of Chai Tea is ONLY $2.45! You save $2!!
Buy 2 Tall Frappuccinos buy a Venti and split it.
You and your friend want the same Tall Frappuccino? Instead of paying $8.50 for two tall frappuccinos, buy a Venti Frappuccino for $5.25 and ask for a two tall cups to spilt!
Bring you own cup.
Though I have never done this myself, I know plenty of people who do, do this. You save 10cents on drinks!
Bring your Venti cup back for more coffee.
I have done this before! If you get (regular or iced) coffee earlier in the day, you can bring you coffee cup back in and get the exact same thing for only 50cents!
Don’t pay for water.
I know you can get a ethos water, but if you ask your barista for a cup of water (I usually get a venti cup of water) the water is free!

I’m back! I took a little (unintended) break from blogging, but I wanted to give you a little update of what I’ve been up to! 🙂
14 Months Without Anxiety Medication
Yes, you heard that right. It has now been 14 months! I’ve been so great with only the tiniest bits of anxiety that I am able to fix in a jiffy!
*Make sure you talk with your Doctor if you want to stop medication
Celebrated the Eagles Winning the Super Bowl
As you know, I’m a Philadelphia Eagles fan. Â On February 4th I was lucky enough to watch (from the comfort of a friend’s couch) my beloved Eagles beat the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl!
Learned The Art of Grounding
[to me] Grounding is the art of standing on the earth’s surface (the beach, grass, dirt, etc) and to relax, reflect, and mediate.
