Review: Best Running Armband for iPhone 6 (4.7)



Get it tight, get it right...


I have been trying to work on better health for myself since January.
When I workout, I love listening to some good heart pumping/upbeat music.
One of the main issues I had working out was keeping my iPhone on and it often falling onto the ground/floor.

I recently tried this armband and I was extremely impressed.

It's incredibly comfortable.
Highly durable.
Easy to Clean.
All the buttons and ports to the iPhone are easily accessible.
It doesn't slide off easily.
The armband is not as bulky as it looks.
There is a spot to hide a key, perfect for your house or gym locker.

I see myself using this armband for a long time to come.

Review: Nutraplex Megaberry Bar



In the past year, I have been always looking for a way to pack quality proteins and snacks into my diet.
I recently found Nutraplex bars.

Some of things that attracted to me to trying Nutraplex bars, they are:
• Gluten Free
• Non-GMO
• Vegetarian
• Kosher
• Contain Omega 3s
• Antioxidants
• Have Rich Fiber
• Soy Free
• Dairy Free

The Megaberry variety is filled with chia seeds, acai berries, cranberries, raspberries, and blueberries.
They're surprisingly sweet and would be perfect for your post Cardio workout snack.
The flavor reminds me of a love child of fresh made granola and a fruit roll up.

If berries are not your thing, they also come in these flavors: Pineapple Coconut, Pomegranate Cherry, and Mango Strawberry.

Go ahead and check Nutraplex Bars out.

Things My Husband Says + Positivity + Youtube

I was opening my blog to write about something positive because the last few weeks have been emotionally draining.

I am continuously trying to remind myself that things will get better. That the grass will in fact become greener. That karma will hold my hand and help me skip into the sunset. God is good.

...Or maybe I will just re-play Dory's voice in Finding Nemo in my head, "Just keep swimming!"



I posted a video to youtube recently revealing the most personal thing in my sketchbook in hopes that others would share their stories. The other reason I did this was to inspire myself to work more in my sketchbook in general.

You can see it here:

Things my Husband Says...

While Talking to Baby M:

Hubs: "Are you my Gucci?"
Me: "Where did you even get that one from?!"

My husband's knowledge of "higher-end" designer brands are Dolce & Gabbana and Gucci.
He's incredibly fancy.

Also, M is already 14 months! Where has the time gone?

Terrapin Adventures: the Ultimate Aerial Adventure Giveaway


Image via Terrapin Adventures


When I was a child, I loved being outdoors. You could find me smiling when I could play in the dirt or climb high trees. When I went to a sleep away camp as a child, I was always excited when our schedule allowed us to go canoeing, white water rafting and gave us the freedom to jump off of things on the Ropes course.

I recently found out about a place in Savage, MD called Terrapin Adventures. Terrapin Adventures sounds like the perfect place to experience all those thrills of heights and climbing I had as a child.

From their website:
Terrapin Adventures offers a wide variety of outdoor fun for all ages. Try our Giant Swing and see what two G’s of force feel like, or glide along our breathtaking Zip Line. Master our crazy ropes course and see how fast you can climb our tower. You’re in for an Aerial Adventure you’ll never forget. We also offer several Adventure Camps, so kids can enjoySummer Camps that will challenge them as they have the time of their lives.Are you an Outdoor Enthusiast? Then try our Outdoor Adventures as we lead our guests on:Kayak tours, geo-caching, bike tours, guided backpacking trips, caving, kayak fishing trips, and more… We also have bike rentals and river tubing rentals and we show you the way.

The lovely people over at Terrapin Adventures reached out to me to experience their Adventure park myself.
However, my month of March was very busy so alas, my visit to Terrapin Adventures will have to wait.

Leaffusion Tea Infuser Review




I have cut down on coffee a lot within the past year, so tea is my drink of choice when I need something warm. It one of those things that helps me relax.

I prefer buying loose leaf tea because it's cheaper and it usually tastes more fresh.
However, finding an Infuser that seeps the tea out correctly can be a total pain...and I have gone through many.

I recently tried Leaffusion and I am incredibly impressed with this adorable Infuser.

Pros:
It is easy to open and close.
The design is sleek and fits in any cup or mug.
It is relatively easy to clean.
Depending on the type of tea you use (or the strength you prefer), you can brew the same batch of tea twice.

Cons:
There are a few bits of tea that will escape the holes.
I know this bothers some tea drinkers but it doesn't bother me.

If you drink tea, definitely think about Leaffusion.

That time I made a playlist of Songs That Remind Me of You...


This is the strangest Selfie I have ever taken with one of my drawings...
...it's also from like three years ago.


Have you ever heard a song and it instantly reminds you of someone?
...Maybe it's even someone from your past.
This happens to me all of the time and I don't think I'll ever escape it.

So Naturally, I decided to make an anonymous playlist of songs that remind me of someone.
I'm calling it anonymous because I won't state which songs reminds me of who and if their in my present or past life.

Here it goes, "Songs That Remind Me of You..."

1. "Gravel," Ani Difranco.
2. "Anchors Away," the Bouncing Souls.
3. "Don't say Nuthin," The Roots.
4. "Wonderwall," Oasis.
5. "The Quiet Things that No one ever Knows," Brand New.
6. "Such Great Heights," The Postal Service.
7. "Gypsy," Fleetwood Mac.
8. "Right Side of the Bed," Atreyu.
9. "Sheena is a Punk Rocker," The Ramones.
10. "Cemetery," Say Anything.
11. "Can't Be Saved," Senses Fail.
12. "Stupid Kid," Alkaline Trio.
13. "Rebel Yell," Billy Idol.
14. "Salty Dog," Flogging Molly.
15. "Bugatti," Ace Hood.

...this list could go on but I'll stop here for now.

Do you have a list of songs that remind you of someone?
I would love to hear what is on your play list.
