FREE course to lose those pounds by becoming a fat burning machine on the keto diet!
Hi, all my beautiful busy people! Right now I’m balancing working full-time, freelancing, school & life. I’m sure that doesn’t even begin to describe the crazy schedules some of you are keeping. In these crazed, stressful times I’ve noticed that health & fitness can take a backseat which neither myself or my waistline love.
I’ve come up with a few hacks to get you through a busy week while still in charge of your health & fitness goals.
Happy Friday & happy long weekend! Whenever there is a three day weekend, I always plan a lot of things – hang out with friends, clean the house, workout every day, plan an epic meal prep, and try a little self-care to finish up the weekend.
Most of that turns into shoulda, woulda, coulda & I spend my weekend sipping margaritas & lounging in front of Netflix. This weekend will be different! No, really I swear. I’ve rounded up my favorite recipes, must reads, the most shoppable sales & an easy self-care routine to stick to even if I do sip one too many drinks.
With summer coming to an end, I wanted a really citrusy & fun drink. This sangria is super refreshing, flavorful and is the perfect drink to send off summer!

I wrote this post about my favorite ways to treat myself in the evening before I go to sleep. My routine has gotten a little off track, but these activities are SO doable that there really is no excuse. I’ll be incorporating this routine back into my nightly rituals!

This pasta dish is good, loaded with veggies & bursting with flavor. Definitely a lighter take on the typical mayo laden pasta side dish.

Labor Day sales have me pretty busy this weekend! So far, I’ve bought leggings, boots & a faux leather jacket (can you tell I’m excited about fall?). Here are some of my favorite sales going on now:
Aerie // up to 60% off select items online only + free shipping through 9/4
Anthropologie // extra 40% off sale items
Free People // extra 25% off sale items
Nordstrom // up to 40% off select styles
Nordstrom Rack // extra 25% off clearance
Sephora // up to 50% off end of summer sale
Ulta // buy one, get one 50% select skin care items
Urban Outfitters // extra 30% off sales
WayFair // up to 70% off select items
It’s hard to get in a self care routine. Working a 9-5 & trying to launch an online business or blog is tough, stressful & time consuming, It is so easy to get rolled up in and lost in your work that you forget about yourself.
So here’s my challenge to you: Practice at least 1 self care ritual every night for a week and see how it makes you feel. I believe that following these self care rituals or starting your own as a way to own bedtime is the perfect way to get a great night’s rest and wake up ready to take on the day!
