WashGuard Laundry Bags Review

The one thing I seem to never be on top of around the house is... laundry.
It piles up easily and I constantly cannot find all of M's socks.

Well, I have found a solution.
The IX Better Home Wash Guard Laundry Bags are the perfect addition to my laundry routine.

I just pop my delicates and small laundry items in the bags, throw it in the washing machine and wash my laundry as usual. They're great because they're light, don't do any damage to my washer or clothes, and I even can keep my socks together!

The only con I have with this product, is that in it's second use in my washing machine...the bag had a small hole on the back. However, the hole didn't seem to effect it working properly. If you are looking for laundry bags for your delicates, check out IX Better Home Wash Guard Laundry Bags.

Masterclass Premium Hardcover Sketchbook Review

M's favorite activities involve making new discoveries...
Recently he's become infatuated with green crayons and his watercolor markers.

I don't mind his obsession with paper (or wanting to shred it, usually).
However, what happens if he creates something great?!
How would I be able to keep it safe?!

Then, I found a pretty great sketchbook for him to doodle his little wild heart out.
The Masterclass Premium Hardcover Sketchbook is helping me preserve his messes/works of art.

The size is 9x12 inches.
It is spiral bound, with a sturdy cover.
It comes with 100 sheets of bright, white acid-free, 60lb paper.
Even though it's mainly for dry media, it holds up to my toddler's drool and his watercolors.

It's durable and I can see how this sketchbook could last a long time.
If you need a sketchbook, you definitely should check out the Masterclass Premium Hardcover Sketchbook .

One thing that I'm particular about is my Deodorant.
It has to smell good, keep my pits dry and last for the day.

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?
