It’s gonna be a hot summer...
Make sure you grab some Vive Seltzer to cool you down! How cute is this inflatable pool? It saved me on a super hot day like it’s been the last few weeks. Make sure you try the Dragonfruit flavor, it’s another one of my favorites!
Vive Seltzer has no artificial sweeteners, it’s gluten free, with only 100 calories and 2 grams of carbs. I have enough to worry about, my hard seltzer shouldn’t be one. I’ve been working on this bawdy honey👏🏽
Would you try this flavor? You can find Vive at Kroger and other stores near you, you can find here.

More about the brand from owner, Kenneth Gilbert on why he started the business:
One day my son and I were with my wife and our 3 girls. My girls were excited as we passed a particular clothing store that they enjoy going to. We go inside, however, this leaves my son and I very bored while also being left out. So he does what every 7-year-old boy does in a girl's clothing store - he starts touching everything he could get his hands on!
As we were scolded by my wife, I began to think, and finally had the idea to start a brand that was just as much about the boys as the girls were experiencing. I realized that boys were an afterthought in the fashion and clothing industry. Whenever going into a department store like Macy's or Burlington, boys are always to the back of the store and they have the smallest section in the store. The selection was also one that only catered to athletics and dinosaurs, while not captivating how great the young men are at the moment.
The Handsome Prince is the opportunity to put boys and their positive images first. The meaning behind the t shirt looks very simple as many boys say and hold on to this mantra at the same time, but to us it had a bigger meaning, and was close to home for us. While the shirt gives homage to our lovely mother's it also implies that The Handsome Prince will work hard to provide for his family. It shows that he is grateful for the nurturing and love that his momma has given him and will do what is necessary to make her feel good. While some only equate richness to financial, we equate it to becoming great husbands and partners, as well as good people and role models. We tell our son all the time that "Boys will be boys is inaccurate because Boys will become men."

Pancakes are healthy.
No really, these Pancakes from Profile by Sanford are the truth! To be honest, I had been CRAVING pancakes, like really missing eating them. I expressed my cravings to my coach Jess and she told me about the pancake mix that Profile had. She said it could take the place of a protein, I said, “say less.” Now, I was a little skeptical about “healthy pancakes” were they going to taste good? I knew they wouldn’t taste like my Mom’s homemade buttery pancakes so I kept an open mind.
To my surprise they were delicious! They were filling and was just what I needed to stop my pancake cravings. Plus they were easy and quick to make, I was able to prep and cook them within 10 minutes!
This is another reason why I am loving Profile by Sanford, they give you healthy alternative options for food that you love eating. I am also loving the “non” scale victories such as people noticing the change in my body and spirit - this is well worth the cost of this program.
If you are looking to make some serious lifestyle changes for the better, I encourage you to join me. This month only Profile is offering Free Shipping on all of their yummy food. Just click HERE to shop and use the code FREESHIP!

I did not even plan on making this into a social media post, but it was a hit! This is a recipe that is super easy and super light for these hot summer days. Here's what you need:
-Watermelon chunks (i just bought these already precut in the store)
-Cucumber cut in cubes
-Cherry Tomatoes (halved)
-Honey (I used the raw honey/natural)
-Herbs (you can use mint or basil, I opted out this time)
-Garlic salt, pepper, garlic powder
Just mix all together and drizzle a little bit of honey over your salad and enjoy! This would also pair really well with some grilled shrimp or chicken, I had mine with some scallops!
Is this something you will try?

Who else was this happy to finally get a quarantine wax?!👋🏽
Im lying but it’s so necessary! I finally was able to book an appointment with my girl at Pure Beauty Skin Bar. Just because it’s a pandemic does not mean we can’t maintain self care and keep it cute. What I love about going to Pure Beauty Skin Bar is the owner Sylvia, she is very knowledgeable in skincare so she's going to make sure everything is done right and correctly. It's also a Black owned business, so double win!
I must admit I was nervous getting a wax done, I had not gotten a wax in YEARS. I know I am ashamed to admit it, Sylvia actually was the last person to do it at her old location. Its funny because I used to get them regularly with no problems, and now I was acting scared. I did have Sylvia spray some numbing spray I found at Sally's Beauty but I don't think it made a difference. If you have never had a wax before, it's not the most pleasant experience but if you have someone who knows how to do it quickly, it helps a lot!
So why get a wax? First of all, it makes wearing swimsuits easier, but it's also great for the summer heat and cleanliness - but really it's all about your preference and what makes your comfortable. I think every woman should experience a wax at least once in their life, who knows you may life it.
Before you go get a wax here are some of MY tips:

Make sure you visit Pure Beauty Skin Bar and schedule your wax!
