Hello Keurig!




There is rarely a day when I dont have coffee or tea to help me start my morning.  Because of this daily ritual I have a pretty mean addiction to caffeine and when I dont have some form of it  the headaches I get are REAL!!

When I bought my first Keurig for Christmas in 2011, I thought it was the best thing ever.  It was quick and easy to use and I didnt have to do all the other things that traditional coffee makers required.  Fast forward to about a month ago, Influenster sent me the new Keurig 2.0 to try out and I gladly accepted! I was already looking to buy an upgraded Keurig because I only had the mini version so the 2.0 was right on time.  





The great thing about the Keurig 2.0 is that it gives you the option now to brew an entire pot/carafe of coffee for those extra long days as opposed to just a single cup like the past brewers did.  The water reservoir holds 80oz of water and you can pick different lights for the brewer for an added personal touch. You can also set the 2.0 to auto-brew for the Karafe and have an entire pot ready for you in the morning. The only bad thing that I would say about it is that you cant use older k-cups for this model because the new sensor does not read them, luckily I still have my old Keurig so I am still able to use those K-cups.


Are you guys obsessed with coffee and tea like I am? What do you think of the new Keurig 2.0? Let me know! 


Hugs and Love :)

Work out


I try to workout or have some form of vigorous physical activity atleast 3 times a week. 

A few weeks ago I was sent this Victorias Secret Sport Sports bra and pants (not pictured) from influenster to try out during my workouts!!



The sports bra is super comfortable to wear and has great support. The bra does have padding which gives you a little extra lift (for those women with smaller chest) and the back has a clasp like a regular bra. 

The only con I would give was that because its not built like a regular sports bra its kind of hard to get off because there is no elastic band to go all the way around. Other than that its a great bra and very comfortable to wear!!

27.





So last Thursday (9/18) was my 27th birthday, and I can finally say that it kinda feels good. For the past few months tho I was freaking out about turning 27 partially because it means that im getting super close to 30 and I am no where near close to where I thought I would by this age. When I was younger I had so many plans for myself and where I wanted to be and should be in life by now. Granted Im still young and I have time to figure it out but why didnt anyone tell me that being an adult would be this difficult??






The time leading up to my birthday I was clueless as to what exactly I wanted to do to celebrate it, because I usually keep it low key and just go to dinner.  This year my friend and I went to San Francisco and loved every moment of it.  It was a long overdue vacay seeing that my last real vacation was back in 2013 :( and because one of my  friends already lives in San Fran it was a perfect chance to see him and also have a place to stay! We got to San Fran the day before my birthday and hit the ground running. My friend's brothers got there later that night and made the time there more fun than I could have imagined! 

The night of my actual birthday we went out and I think it will go down as one of my best birthdays yet! I was so happy to just be living and experiencing new and different things. I was overwhelmingly full and grateful. Celebrating my birthday that way in a different place made me realize that 1) I should take the time to live more 2) 27 probably wont be as bad as I made it out to be and 3) I have been blessed with an opportunity that most people dont get and I was humbled.
