Sittin' On The Dock

Some of you may have already figured this out, but I can be a little slow at times. I was doing the calculations in my head the other day and realized that HEY, IT'S MARCH PEOPLE!!! In 3 months (give or take) it will be time for toes in the sand and pina coladas in hand. I plan on being at the beach atleast once a week since it's only an hour drive, so I need to start preparing and browsing swim suits. 

Last year I bought this bikini from Victoria's Secret...
Love it, very feminine and cute

 Well here's the back of
Cheeky Bottom
 In the description of the bikini bottom it should have said "CAUTION: If you have a small backside then you will not have a problem, BUT if you do have a booty on ya then half of it will be visible to all around you." Well guess what? I'm a small girl yes but I do have a booty, you can ask my people if ya don't believe. I only wore this bikini to the lake twice but this year it's going to the beach with me! I love it and the colors are great on me (more coral in person than hot pink) so it's time to get brave. 

My Beach Prep:
1. I will be starting P90X (for the 2nd time) on Monday. The program is 3 months long so it's perfect timing for me. Along with this workout, I also do Zumba and Pilates a few times a week (not on Ab Ripper days). If you've never done's a great program but damn it will kill you in the
2. With my workout programs I do a meal replacement smoothie/shake for lunch usually every other day. 
3. Continue on with eating healthy and I try my best to keep this habit all year round. -NO fast food, which isn't hard because Italy doesn't really have that option. -Cut back on the pop/soda/coke/whatever else you may call it. 
4. And last not definitely NOT least, find me some more bikinis. So here are just a few that I like from Victoria's Secret.

Post Baby Body...Planning Ahead

I'm over half way to meeting our new little princess! At this stage in the pregnancy I'm also thinking about anything and everything having to do with a 3rd child and all the changes that will be happening in my house. Quite honestly, I'm freaking out a little. Of course I'm doing all the typical things parents do when prepping for a new arrival, but I've also decided to take the time to focus on myself while I still can. 

   27 weeks pregnant, which means in 13 weeks or less I will be meeting our new tiny princess. One of the things women typically worry about with pregnancy is the ever so dreaded weight gain that comes with the territory. I can happily say that I've done extremely well with this pregnancy and so far only had a 12 pound gain. But as we all know, the 3rd trimester tends to have the largest weight gain. Since I probably won't have a ton of extra down time once the baby arrives, I've decided to go ahead and start planning to lose the ba…

IPSY: December Glam Bag Review

I will be reviewing the products I received in my December Ipsy bag since I've had the chance to test them out for about a month now. If you don't know already here's the spill. Instead of doing an "unboxing" type of post, I review the products over the course of a month and then let you know what I thought and all the product details. If you didn't see my November bag review you can check it out HERE.

   This post is a bit late, but we'll be getting back on track for February.
   Here's what I received in my December Ipsy Bag...

1). December's Glam Bag- Not going to lie, this month's bag was a disappointment for sure; it felt cheap, was flimsy, and the zipper was in a weird spot. I will probably end up giving it to my daughter to keep her play makeup in.

2). NYX Butter Lip Balm in Red Velvet- Retails for $4.00 (this is the full size)
   I'm not a big tinted lip balm fan, I'd rather just wear a lipstick. This is the first NYX balm I…

Warming The Soul

The weather has been viciously cold in many parts of the United States this winter. If you are anything like me, that means hot delicious soup to warm the mind, body and soul. Soup is a comfort food staple and I feel like people are more drawn to it between October and March, that's especially true for my family. With Florida weather it's just almost too hot for soup any other time of year unless is storming and chilly out.

   Pinterest is my absolute favorite place to find new recipes, so I wanted to share a few of my soup pins with you. I've made all of these except one, which I'll make a note of below, and they've all turned out delicious.

1). Crab & Corn Chowder- This soup is absolutely delicious and hearty. For me, it was something different and unexpected. Growing up in Kentucky we didn't make soups like this, mom always served chili, potato, or broccoli cheddar soup because those are the southern specialties. If you make any of these soups, please …
