Thoughtful Thursday

Can not believe this is the last Thursday of 2017. It is crazy thinking about how fast this year has flown by. Since there are only 4 days left in 2017, I am already thinking about all the things that I want to do in 2018. 2018 I have decided is going t be a year that I truly making some changes for the better.

With that said, here are some quotes that I found that I think are appropriate for the end of one chapter and the beginning of another from Pinterest:




Peace & blessings all! Happy last Thursday of 20171!!!

Tea Tree Oil Shampoo with Maple Holistics

I received this product from Maple Holistics for review. This opinion is and mine alone.

Sometimes, you need a break and the last few days were definitely needed. I was a little sick for a day or so (no surprised there). Excited about the new year and getting back on track. One thing that I  I have been doing this year is trying different products to change up my regular routine. A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Haley at  Maple Holistics about reviewing a product of theirs. All of the products that the company has are made in the USA and are all natural.  There are a range of products that they make from skin care to bubble bath. 

I ended up receiving the Tea Tree Shampoo to tryout. 
I have used the shampoo a few times since I received it at the end of November. The verdict is that its a good product. One of the major pluses for me is that it has kept my hair from being so brittle. A lot of shampoo tend to dry out my hair for some reason. This one does not do that at all.

 It helps with the dryness of the scalp.  My scalp has not flaked or been as dry as it was before using this product. People use to mention that to me sometimes. No one has said anything about since using the shampoo. I am going to tryout  the conditioner sometime soon. One crazy thing that I have noticed too since I started using this is that my hair is been growing softer. If you ever want to try some of the shampoo out, here is where you can chose a free sample of one of there products

Peace and Blessings, all. I would love to know if any of you try some of their products. Have a great Thursday!!!

Pomegranate Acai & Blueberry Spritzer

Hi all!!! I officially have my life and some of my time back for the moment. School is finished for the semester. I even surprised myself this semester I ended up with a 4.0 so for me it is time to relax and celebrate. One thing that I did this week end was make a new drink.

Ever since last summer, I have been using the Pomegranate Acai & Blueberry sorbet from Kroger. I usually put some in my Champagne. I decided mix it with something different. I call this a spritzer since its made with club soda. It ended up being very refreshing. This would be a perfect drink for the Summer or Winter (since it is still technically Fall) with cranberry.

Here are the ingredients that I used:
One can of Q club soda
1 shot of vodka (I used Skyy)

The one can of Q was added with the shot of vodka. Then, the melon baller was used to make the three balls, dropping each ball of sorbet in the glass. I used a stirrer to help the balls melt some. Finally, the 2 splashes were added for color. I think I am going to try it with cranberries or something else to make it more festive for the season.

Peace & blessings all!! Have a great Monday & I would love to know if any of you have tried any new drink recipes lately.

Fitness Tuesday

Happy Tuesday, all!!! I can't believe that December is not only here but in less than 4 weeks, that it will be 2018. This last part of the year has gone by so fast, its ridiculous. Since it is getting cooler down here in the South, it is time for one of my favorite things: Soup.
I know that everyone makes soups using all different kind methods (crock pots, stove cooktop, microwave, and so on). In the next few weeks, I am going to try making these in the next few weeks. I found most these on Eating Well, which is one of my favorite website for healthy food recipes. Here are a few of my favorites:

Smoked Gouda-Broccoli Soup

Egg Drop Soup with Vegetables

Easy Butternut Squash Soup

Slow-cooker vegetable soup

Many of these are healthy and great options if you trying to add vegetables into your diet. Soup is also great for weight loss/maintaining. I would love to hear what soups you all like or what soup you love in colder months.

Peace & blessings, all!! Have a great Tuesday!
