At the beginning of each week I like to get prepared and meal prep some lunch, dinner and snack ideas for the week.
This week was pretty quick meal prep, but here is what is on the menu:
B- smoothie w/ protein powder
S-almond flour strawberry shortcake muffin
L-protein pasta with turkey meatballs and side salad
S-yogurt with nuts mixed in
D-bean burrito with cheese and Greek yogurt (great sour cream substitute)
I also love painting my nails a new color at the beginning of each week! This color is from Ulta’s brand of nail polish…Love the it
Also last week I finished up a really good audio book that I listen to in my car on the way to / from work. I listen via a free audio service offered through my local library. I love that libraries are offering more digital services these days so I can listen or read books right from my cell phone! This service is called Hoopla, and there is a good selection of ebooks and audiobooks available.
This book was called “People over profits” by Dale Patridge . You can read reviews on Amazon here.
It was a really good book, definitely recommend a read / listen.
There have been a few items on my wish list that past few weeks that I just cannot find in stores so I decided to make a purchase on amazon. I wasn’t able to use coupons and the cashback website didn’t work either but the items were at a relatively good price so I don’t really mind.
I purchased a bee sting mask by Nip + Fab for $9.95 and Airspun translucent powder $10.50. Both items have been mention by a beauty Youtuber that I watch and I cannot find either in my local drugstores or on Ulta’s website even though they carry other Nip + Fab products.
The other item that I purchased was a body butter from Lavanila. I had received a free sample from Sephora back in December used it up in a short time.
The smell is amazing and it feels great on my hands as well. The trial size was .85 oz and I received it free with purchase. However the full size is 6.7oz and $19 at Sephora.
That’s a lot of money compared to getting hand lotion at like Bath and Body or Victoria Secret. I’ve been watching the price on Amazon and I purchased two at $14.74 each. So I did save 22% by buying from Amazon instead of Sephora.
