My Typical Daily Meal Plan

Ever since I lost my baby weight, I've received many inquires about my meal plan and workout habits.  For today's post I thought I would share my typical daily meal plan.  It varies from day-to-day but this will give you an idea of how I maintain a healthy lifestyle.  I noticed a huge change in my energy levels once I began working out regularly and changing my eating habits to fit healthier guidelines.

Now I love eating healthy foods because they don't leave me feeling sluggish afterwards.  The key to maintaining a healthy lifestyle in terms of my eating habits is to eat slowly and don't over-consume, drink plenty of water throughout the day and one glass before each meal, and eat five smaller meals rather than three large meals per day.  What is your typical meal plan?

Friday Favorites!

It's Friday, loves!  For this week's round of Friday Favorites, I have included some of my favorite beauty and fashion items.  I also added a few healthy lifestyle items.  I was not compensated for this blog post nor was I asked to write about the following brands.

This "Rich Girl" lipstick is one of my favorite beauty items.  I use this almost every day!  I received this particular one at a fashion show; however, I'm sure they carry it at Sephora or ULTA.

Since I am quite the "busy mama" lately, I thought that this planner was cute and keeps me organized.  I like to keep my life clean and organized so this can really help a lady out sometimes!

Although wearing heels is great, sometimes I need to rock some flats.  Therefore, I like to carry these flats around with me from time to time so I can just throw them on if necessary.

I've been using this Line Stiletto liquid eyeliner by Maybelline for quite some time now.  It's great if you are looking to create a nice cat eye.

This purse is the perfect daytime handbag, and I've been using it almost every day this week.  It was gifted from ALDO.

Last but not least, I received these inspirational books and affirmations yesterday!  I love positive literature.  As most of you know, I believe that whatever you desire can come to you as long as you remain positive about your life.  I hope you enjoyed Friday Favorites.  Enjoy your weekend!

Friday Favorites!

It's Friday, so you know what that means...Friday Favorites!  For this week, I've featured primarily beauty products but a few other items relating to fashion or health.  I was not compensated to promote these brands by any means.  Enjoy your weekend, guys!

This cleanser is one of my go-to face washes because it doesn't leave my skin dry at all.  I received this at a fashion show; however, it is most likely available at any of your local drug stores.
I'm a fan of Clean & Clear products (ever since my tween-age years), and this Morning Burst facial scrub is perfect for deep cleansing.  I use this about once a week.  I picked this up at CVS, but I'm sure it's available at Target or Walgreen's as well.
Urban Decay has my favorite eyeshadow primer, which some would consider an "indulgence" since it isn't really necessary when applying eyeshadow.  However, I find that it actually helps reduce the need to use more product because it acts as a glue to keeping your eye makeup on longer.  I grabbed this item at Sephora.
Lately, I have been using this bareVitamins PRIME TIME foundation primer as well.  At first I thought that the oily consistency would leave my face feeling greasy but it actually applies smoothly without any residue.  This primer helps keep foundation on throughout the whole day.  I purchase this product from Sephora as well.
I have to admit, I am a sucker for protein or nutritional bars and I love these Pure & Simple energy bars by PowerBar.  They satisfy my hunger and taste delicious too!  I buy these from Walgreen's.
Last but not least, this was one of my major splurges this week.  I owned an iPhone before and switched back to Blackberry for some time but now I've returned to the infamous iPhone and I'm loving my new toy!

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, lovers!  For today's post I decided to showcase some of my favorite health, beauty, home or fashionable items for the week.  These are items that I recently purchased and have been using often or I highly recommend to you.



























Since it's been a little chilly lately, I have been wearing a lot of hats and scarfs and my latest hat fetish includes fedoras.  
























































Those who know me must know that I absolutely love candles, and I probably go through them in two weeks.  Anyway, this peppermint cranberry candle smells so good (available at Target).



























I've been using this ELF eyeshadow palette this past week, and it's great because it has 100 shades in almost every color option.  I also found this beauty at Target for only $10.  They had other palettes for $5 as well.



























This clutch was actually gifted, but I love the detailing and color of it.  It's classic with the gold clasp and chain.  What's also great about it is that the chain can be worn with it as a shoulder bag or removed as a clutch.
























































Since having a baby, I've been very conscience about my diet and work out regimen.  I have been getting a lot of questions regarding what I eat, how I lost my baby weight, and what my work out plan consists of.  I'll post more at a later date, but for now I want to highlight these LUNA nutrition bars.  I LOVE these bars.  They are ideal for women because the calorie content isn't really high, but you still get a high enough amount of protein in each bar.



























Essie is one of my favorite nail polish brands.  Lately, I have been switching out these three tones: 1) Buy me a Cameo 2) Clambake and 3) Sand Tropez.  You can purchase Essie at almost any drugstore or generic store.



























Last but not least, these Steve Madden booties are definitely one of my favorites.  The first time I spotted them was while window shopping on Lincoln Road and I knew that I had to have them.  I actually wore these babies for New Year's Eve.  They are extremely comfortable too.

What are some of your favorite items?
