Wishlist Wednesday-Jewelry Must Haves

I love jewelry. I love to find cute, interesting pieces that I can wear with anything. 



After pinning initial after initial necklaces for months, I finally bought one here. I wear it everyday and I get so many compliments on it!

I got an Alex and Ani bracelet for Christmas and I completely fell in love with them. They are so much fun to mix and match. I love how each bracelet means something to me. I love wearing them with my gold watch too! You can find them here.



I also love rings. I think these midi rings are super fun and inexpensive. You can find them here

The "Lauren Conrad" Smoothie

I recently purchased a new Ninja blender so I've been pinning a ton of healthy smoothie recipes to try. Of course the "Lauren Conrad" smoothie was the first one I had to try because I'm obsessed with her. The thing that caught my eye with this particular recipe is the fact that it has oatmeal in it. I'll admit I've never thought twice about putting oatmeal in my smoothie.

The "Lauren Conrad" Smoothie

Ingredients:
  • 1 c. ice
  • 1 banana 
  • 1/2 c. frozen raspberries or strawberries (I used 1 c. strawberries)
  • 1/2 c. plain low-fat yogurt 
  • 1/2 c. old fashioned rolled oats (I changed this to 1/4 c. oats)
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 c. coconut water or juice (I used 1% milk)



I was actually pleasantly surprised with this smoothie. I love that it is really healthy and you don't have to add a bunch of sugar to it or a fruit juice like a lot of other smoothies.  It looks like this will be one of my go to breakfast meals!

Spring Loves!

The weather has been uncharacteristically warm in Utah for the past two weeks, making me long for spring! I don't know how long the weather will last, but I'll enjoy it while it's here. This Wish List was inspired by spring!

I saw this look here.


I have been looking for a new watch, and I fell in love with this one. You can find it here. How perfect would this watch be with that outfit! 



Salt water Sandals are something that I wore as a kid. I discovered they have them in women's sizes here.





But most of all spring makes me wish for these...

Pinterest Project.


I love pinterest! When I saw this deer, I knew I must have one for myself. The person who pinned it thought it would be great for the holidays, however I think it's great for any time of the year. 

To start I bought a 9X12 canvas, modge podge, and of course gold glitter. 

I searched online for a deer stencil that I liked, and I found one here



I lightly traced that stencil on the canvas with a pencil. 

Then I took a foam brush and painted a section at a time and poured glitter on it. After letting it sit for a minute I gently tapped the excess glitter off and fixed any holes


The in-progress deer.

Once I finished the glitter, I sprayed the canvas with a clear varnish to keep the glitter from falling off the canvas. 


Finished Product.

Fitness Wish List!

This is pretty rare for me because I typically hate anything to do with exercise but I bought a new workout program called the 21 Day Fix.  I love that I can do it from home and it only takes a few minutes out of my busy day.  Since I'm on a fitness kick lately I thought I would share some of my work out clothes/gear that are on my wish list!


I'm dying over these custom Nikes from Glitter Fix. Aren't these gorgeous!?!?! 



Forever 21 surprisingly has some awesome deals on active wear. I have these workout leggings in gray and aqua but would love this pair as well.


I love this Nike sweat shirt that can be found here. It would go nicely with the custom shoes. 


This reflective trim running top can also be found at Forever 21. This would be perfect to slip on during those cool nights. Plus it's only $15.80 which is a huge bonus!

I love the colors in this tank top found here. This would be perfect if you are exercising outside or even during a work out video at home. 

I guess I better go do my 21 Day Fix video of the day now that I've been talking all about active wear!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Tasty Tuesday- Peanut Butter Protein Balls

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl and roll into ten balls (about a tablespoon each)
Refrigerate over night to firm up. Enjoy!

For all my wavy haired girls.

Any one else out there have wavy hair like me? My hair isn't straight enough to not to use a straightener, but it isn't crazy curly either. It's just pretty wavy. It needs a product to help the waves stay, but I don't love the crunchy look that comes with gel. 
Then I found this sea salt spray at Urban Outfitters, but it can be purchased at Target or stores like that for around five dollars!


I spray a little in my hair right when I get out of the shower and scrunch my hair, and let it air dry. I LOVE it. It smells great, and it helps my hair hold it's waves, and it gives me those beachy waves that I love. 


Here's a glimpse of my hair with the salt spray from the back (I'm on the right)
 This has quickly become one of my go to products and I wear my hair wavy much more than I ever have before!


Try it out! Let us know what you think
