I cannot believe it’s August 1st, ya’ll. I know it is, but it’s just hard to wrap my head around the fact that 2018 is on the downward end. Although summertime lasts here for a few more months, things shift to fall quickly. For example, two days ago at Kroger, I saw Brach’s Autumn Mix was now displayed. HUH??? And although I am one of the MOST basic girls you’ll ever meet, even I want to enjoy my fill of cold brew before I start sipping on my PSL. (For my less-than-basic readers, that’s Pumpkin Spice Lattes.)
So let’s embrace August, because it’s a FANTASTIC month! So much happening that I can’t wait to share with you!!!
The biggest thing is that August 22nd is my amazing husband’s birthday! Bryan will be celebrating 32 years and because I am the worlds’ worst secret keeper, I will be surprising him through out the month with his gifts! *He got his BIG one yesterday! A beautiful 2006 Fender Stratocaster that he found, but I was able to secretly buy from out under him!
Next….I have partnered up with Jordan Kinard, Owner of J. Ashley Innovations to do a redesign of the blog! I can’t wait for you to see the end result! Her skills and knowledge are going to make my vision for this space come to fruition. I encourage you to subscribe to the blog with your email so you can see it transform… Because it is going to be AWESOME!
Another exciting collaboration with The Honey Blossom Shop……AND an UPCOMING GIVEAWAY!!!!!! I have ordered from this shop several times already and they are wonderful! Fast shipping, beautiful products, and their prices are MIND-BLOWING! If you haven’t started following me on Instagram, DO IT NOW! I will be posting more details and the actual giveaway there!
This month, I am on a mission to find the BEST cold brew out there. (Whether it’s by making it myself OR finding it in store.) I will keep track of what’s best and direct you accordingly. So far, I am enjoying Trader Joe’s Cold Brew Concentrate – although it’s a bit strong for my taste. I am in pursuit so feel free to comment below and let me know what your faves are!
Also – I honestly believe I have found the BEST protein bar in the world. Thanks to my friend, Jessica, and Trader Joe’s I will never go hungry again. (O.k…..that’s a little dramatic.) I have always wanted to just grab a bar on my way out of the house to throw in my purse just in case I may get hungry and don’t want to eat fast food. (You’ve been there, right?) I have tried so many and get the same result. I’m starving thirty minutes later and they never taste quite right. WELL…..all that’s changed now that I’ve found The Perfect Peanut Butter Bar. The original ones have 17 grams of Protein and all the ingredients are organic. Also, the 18 g. of sugar it contains is from honey – natural sugar! ….. You can find them in the refrigerated section of Trader Joe’s and other select retailers or just subscribe to Amazon for regular shipments and get them shipped straight to your door! I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to find them – but do yourself a favor and buy a box. OH and the dark chocolate chip peanut butter flavor is to die for.
Another exciting announcement just happened today in my Senegence business…..a ROSE GOLD collection was released! A limited edition Lip color called Rose All Day, a new Rose Gold Lipgloss, and our Rose Gold Glitter ShadowSense. I am beyond excited for this collection because it will be PERFECT for fall! If you haven’t joined my VIB group on Facebook, NOW is the time! Lots of fun videos, tutorials, and a great giveaway will be happening!
I have some other goodies up my sleeve (no, not just peanut butter bars!) but I don’t want to spoil everything on the first day of the month. So follow along for a fabulous month, because every day is going to be A Brand New Day! 🙂
