People who know me well are aware of my obsession with @emma_bridgewater pottery ☕️
I haven't bought any in ages as I've been trying to cut down on spending but the Ivy pattern has to be my absolute favourite 🌿
I wrote post a while a go about my visit to the factory - I'll link it in the bio if anyone wants to find out more. I want to go again soon (not sure Big is too keen on going again though, and I'm not sure my bank account would be too keen either 😂)
What do you buy for around the home that your other half isn't keen on?
Have you ever found yourself saying...is this really what I want to do with my life?🙋🏼 OR
Well, this is what I went to school for - so shouldn't I love it? 🤦🏼♀️👯♂️
-I have to make money to live somehow, so do I just tough it out?💥🌪 I have asked myself Both of those questions. And I was willing to settle.🚫 I was willing to suck it up and just keep doing what I was doing. How SAD is that!? Friiiiickkkk🌀. I was willing to give up on my potential because I was TOO SCARED to try something new! Legit #introvertproblems 👸👩🏼 A little over 1 year ago while I was pregnant 🤰 I made the decision to try something new and WAY out of my comfort zone 🌀because I wanted to be 🏡 home with my kids on my own time!
The income is amazing, 💰 the personal growth this business has given me is the BEST part about it! I get paid to HELP myself and OTHERS get happier 😀 and healthier! 💪 i get PAID to get to know people and build relationships with them...to help other women realize their POTENTIAL and learn to love ❤️ themselves... I have decided to mentor FIVE (because 5 is my max my brain can handle at once lol!) new ladies next month to create their OWN online business. 🙌🏻🤳 I provide you with literally EVERYTHING I used to grow my successful business from my COUCH (or coffee shop lol!) and I help you do the same!
What do you need?
-1 hour a day to learn and implement
-The desire to help people
-The drive to work hard
-The passion to learn
-The heart to know that YOU deserve the best
-The belief in yourself that YOU can do this (and I will help you every step of the way!) If you are ready to find that PASSION in your life like I was, please message me and let me know you are interested in learning more about coaching! I cannot wait to hear from you!

💥Meal prepped like a BOSS today!
I searched and searched Pinterest to find other healthy lunch options besides salad. As my husband says..."you don't make friends with salad 🥗 " I don't know why....lol
ANYWAY, I came across this Greek chicken bowl and here it is!! 🙌🏼I cheated on parts of the recipe like making your own taziki sauce but the store bought is fine since there's not that much in there!
Here's how you make it: 👉🏼Make a simple Greek dressing with 1/3c lemon juice, 2tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp red wine vinegar, sea salt, garlic and oregano. Chop up cherry tomatoes and cucumbers and add dressing on top. Add feta cheese crumbles. 👉🏼Marinade chicken in Greek dressing and grill. Portion out chicken, Greek salad and a healthy carb of your choice! This has brown rice and the others have quinoa.
Boom! I used 4 chicken breasts that were on the smaller side and it made 7 lunches! 🙌🏼Even better is that this is served cold.
If you're sick of salads for lunch, give this one a try! If you'd like to see more of this new "you don't make friends with salad 🥗 " series 😂, let me know in the comments below! 📲
Some afternoons you just need the coffee, especially if it is rainy and grey outside! Lovely mug from @harpareykjavik and tea light holder from @wag_ca courtesy @hobstheschnoodle! #allthecoffee#afternooncoffee
Did I mention I've moved the blog to a new website? I've put the link in my bio if you fancy having a peek. Make sure you leave a comment if you pop over 💻
Would love some suggestions on posts people would like to see on there. Or any videos people would like to see as well! 🎥
A savory take on pumpkin instead of sweet spice!
•1 lb fettuccine, cooked (reserve 1 cup of pasta water)
•6 tbsp butter
•2 cloves garlic, minced
•1 cup pumpkin purée
•1/8 tsp nutmeg
•2/3 cup half and half
•1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
•1 tbsp chopped parsley
1. Melt butter over medium-low heat. Stir in garlic and cook for about a minute.
2. Stir in Parmesan, half and half, pumpkin, and nutmeg. Stir until sauce is heated through and cheese is melted.
3. Stir in reserved pasta water 1/4 cup at a time until sauce is desired consistency.
4. Add cooked pasta to sauce and cook over medium high heat until sauce is smooth and pasta is well coated, about 1-2 minutes.
5. Top with fresh parsley and serve while hot!
It all starts with one decision. Am I going to make the most of the time I'm given on this earth & all the resources I have available?
HECK YES I AM! Dreams can't come true unless you make that decision to start!

Any #GilmoreGirls fans out there? After my #studiotoneitup workout I changed into some comfy stuff and made myself a #Whole30 approved Pumpkin Spice Latte! ☕️ Now I'm rounding off my #MiracleMorning with some journaling/affirmations/visualization! I think it's time to make a new vision board. Happy Sunday Babes!
