Weekend Favorites

morning coffee and sketchingGood morning friends,

I hope you all having an amazing weekend. Today I wanted to share with you some of my weekend favorites that help to love my reflection in the mirror:) Being a first time mom it is very easy to stuck in the routine and make a lot of excuses. When my baby was born, we used to go to the pool almost every day, I took yoga classes and we also spent a lot of time outside so I got in shape pretty fast. But there was a time when I got very busy with commission projects while still taking care of the baby so I started making the excuses. Until the day when my hubby made a comment that I look pregnant again, ohh well, bad sense of humor!!!! On the other hand, it was a good kick that motivated to start taking care of myself.

My first find is this Frank coffee scrub. I first stumbled on their Instagram page and loved their dirty sense of humor and hilarious marketing “get naked. get dirty. get rough. get clean.”. After reading some reviews, I knew I must have it. Guys, this is the best scrub ever, it really does wonders to my skin.body scrub, coffee scrubSecond, is the argan oil collection. I love “Oil for body and hair”.

Coffee First

Starbucks coffee, starbucks K-Cups reviewI can’t believe it’s fall already. And when I think of fall, I think of beautiful colors at the park, slight chill in the air, apple picking, cozy sweaters and, of course, a cup of delicious hot coffee. This cooler weather has put me in the mood for the spicy cinnamon flavor and if you like Starbucks as I do then you will love Starbucks® Cinnamon Dolce K-Cup® Packs. It’s  perfect not only on a chilly fall morning but also for afternoon breaks and evening entertaining as well.

There are also Cinnamon Dolce, Mocha, Vanilla, Caramel flavors and I’m so excited to serve all these flavors after a Thanksgiving meal.
