Hello friends! September is here and it’s time for my August roundup. Here is the small list of things I’ve been enjoying this past month.
1. Diabetic Living
Back in June I posted a summer wish list + and on that list was Diabetic Meals to Plate + because I was really looking for some additional dishes to add to my meals. However as most of you know Diabetes isn’t just about eating … it’s a lifestyle. So I came across this magazine last month and I’ve been going through mag as it gives advice on not just what you eat + but how you eat + and how that relates to how you feel about what you ate. I love the articles that promote a healthy lifestyle + and well being.
2. Paper Destiny Candles + Papyrus
Candles are always in season + as Bath + Body Works [as well as other stores] have a wide selection of candle scents. Most of what I found [in late summer] was over-powering as every scent was doing it’s best to replicate summer. I love most of the fall and winter scents + but everything I tried made my nose burn. I actually came across these candles while buying a card at Papyrus. It’s a small candle + but I’ve been burning it all month long and it’s still going strong. Unfortunately these candles are no longer available in store + but I’ll be on the look-out and pass on the links if I find them.
3. Born To Glow Highlighting Palette + NYX
I’m in love with highlights + and I’ve been looking at this NYX “Born to Glow” for some time as it was also in my Summer Wish List. I have nothing but good things to say about this product + and how it pairs with my skin.
Packed with shimmery pearls that catch, reflect and refract the natural light, each creamy powder blends seamlessly into the skin and spotlights your features with an intense glow. It includes six silky shades which can be applied alone, or layered together for a multi-dimensional strobe effect. [Source: Ulta Beauty]
4. Nut Butter Energy Bites + Chef Savvy
This quick go-to snack has been my everything last month [and still on-going] you just need five ingredients [check the link] and you can modify or change them to your liking. Just two bites [balls] in the morning with coffee will keep my stomach from growling. Or after a workout + because you need the protein … they’re also great for that 2pm dip that most folks get in the afternoon. If you try them out + post it in the comments.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today + and be sure to check out my other posts. Don’t forget to “like” + “comment” + and “subscribe”.
