Lately – A Few Favorites

Happy Tuesday, Friends! It’s raining here today, so we’re getting a lot of stuff done around the house. It’s kind of a nice break, and a good excuse to get things done that we tend to put off when it’s nice outside.

I wanted to share with y’all a few of my favorites lately. It’s always fun to find out about products others like, so here’s the scoop on a few of mine.

Shampoo & Conditioner
Since I don’t wash my hair that often, I don’t mind spending a little bit more on this shampoo & conditioner. It leaves my hair feeling soft and shiny, without feeling heavy at all. I wash my hair like twice a week these days, and use this dry shampoo on the days I don’t for a refresh.

My husband and I love our coffee in the morning, who doesn’t, right? Well, lately, we’ve been loving this coffee. We added it to our monthly subscription of diapers, etc. It’s that good, and strong.

Bell Sleeve Top

This top has been on repeat a lot lately. I bought it months ago, but I love putting it on when I’m in a rush in the morning. It’s so lightweight, so it’s a great option for Summer.

Pixie Eyeliner
I’ve tried a lot of eyeliners in my day, and this one just keeps winning in my book.

This quote. Perfection, and a great reminder!

Have a happy one!

Favorite Breakfast Lately


I have been trying to lose the last of the baby weight (I have about 8 pounds to go to get to my wedding weight), and so since breakfast is the most important meal of the day, I have been trying to find my new favorite breakfast. Well, I found it.

I will go through phases with my breakfasts, and then I get bored. Some days, all I want is a piece of toast with butter and jam, and other days, I want eggs or an English muffin. Since I am trying to lose weight, I am trying to eat less bread. I cannot completely cut it out, because I know once I do start eating it again, I will just gain everything back. Crash diets don’t work for me, “everything in moderation” does. I love bread, but if I ever want to get to my size 6 again, I’ve got to cut back. And, I have, thankfully.

This is going to sound wasteful, but my whole life, I have always tried to eat just half of what was on my plate. I have always eaten like a bird, I just pick at my food. Except when it comes to filets or dessert – I finish those every time. You’ve got to balance your calories out, or as I like to call it, prioritizing properly!

Lately, I’ve been loving Greek yogurt with granola mixed in it. Some days, I add fruit to it, like a sliced banana, raspberries or strawberries. It just depends how much time I have between feeding the hubs and the baby before I eat my breakfast, and how lazy I am feeling about washing/cutting fruit!  Coffee is the first thing I make for us, after making a bottle. I usually only drink two cups (bad, I know), but now that I can drink caffeine again, I am living it up. It also just helps when you’re up at 6:00 am everyday with little ones, too.

So, that’s what I start my day off with lately. It is helping me lose the weight, I can already tell. I feel full until lunch time, which is all that matters.

What are you loving for breakfast right now? And no, I’m not talking about McDonald’s when I say that, either!
