These are the Five Things You Need on a Bar Cart

Setting up a Bar Cart is not as hard as you may think! The first thing, obviously is to find a cart at a good price point. This one for instance, I got for under $150!

Favorite Liquor

While I’m not a huge fan of hard liquor, there are a few exceptions. On my bar cart, you’ll find Tequila, wine, and often whiskey. This allows for a variety of drinks be made; I somewhat consider them the essentials! Of course, the type of liquor you decide to add to your cart is completely up to you. 😉

Flowers

Whether fresh or faux, flowers can easily transform a space. I recommend adding some to the bar cart to add a bit of a personal touch. For me, having fresh flowers is a must. There’s just something about them; they bring so much life to a space.

How to Satisfy Summer Time Antojos? Try a belVita Breakfast Parfait

This post is sponsored by NABISCO but all opinions are my own.

Summer is here and we are taking time to slow down and satisfy our antojos with quick but delicious recipes. One of the ways my family slows down is by doing things differently, like having breakfast in bed. 🙂 It’s the perfect way to satisfy our antojos and bond as a family. We have a handful of recipes that we love but the Make-it-Your-Own belVita Breakfast Parfait recipe is at the top of our list. It is a simple to follow recipe which only calls for a handful of ingredients and can be done in 10 minutes. Yes, you read that right!

The ingredient that we love most and always have in our home is the belVita Breakfast Biscuits. These are a go-to for my family and while we mostly eat them while on the go, it’s a snack that brings us together. The girls love sharing the belVita Cinnamon Brown Sugar Breakfast Biscuits, their favorite flavor. Now that it’s summer and we’re spending more time at home, it’s nice to be able to slow down and savor them.

Being able to incorporate them into delicious recipes like this belVita Breakfast Parfait is a plus. This fun recipe has helped us make some fun memories already. The girls have not stopped talking about this delicious breakfast idea!

They really enjoyed helping me pick up all of the ingredients that we needed to make the recipe at our local H-E-B. They agreed on what day we could have breakfast in bed because we needed to make sure Papi was home to enjoy this moment with us. And they each picked what jobs they would do with my supervision, of course. Nalani crumbled the biscuits because she is the smallest and did a great job at it. While, Nayelli helped me measure the ingredients; the yogurt, honey, pineapple and flaked coconut. It was my job to blend the yogurt and honey and put together each layer of the parfaits. At some point Nayelli took over as supervisor and kept saying, “Mami make sure to do the layers right!” 🙂

Is Your Bedroom Perfectly Prepped For Sleep?

Is Your Bedroom Perfectly Prepped For Sleep?

Having a bedroom that’s perfectly prepped for sleep will help you to drop off easier at night, stay asleep, and have a better quality of sleep overall. Maybe you think you’re bedroom is perfectly prepped for sleep, but after reading this, you’ll come to realize that it’s not.

Here are some things you need to consider, think about, and do if you want a bedroom that’s perfect for sleep.

The Right Temperature

Your bedroom needs to be the right temperature for sleep, or you’re going to struggle. You may end up lying awake, or waking up constantly because you’re uncomfortable. Being too hot or too cold can do this. Your bedroom should be between 60-67 degrees for optimal sleep.

A Comfortable Bed

Your bed needs to be tailored to your own individual needs. There’s no one size fits all that suits everybody. It can be even harder to set up the perfect bed if you sleep with another person. The best thing you can do is go and test beds in person. You need something that’s not too firm, but not too soft; usually, this means being able to fit two fingers under your back while lying down. Also focus on having breathable, high quality bedding that will last. The higher the cotton count, the more luxurious the bedding, usually.

How to Improve your Blogging Skills!

How to Improve your Blogging Skills!

Being a blogger is a lot of hard work, and doing what you can to get ahead of the crowd as far as trends are concerned is exhausting. But, the other thing that we don’t talk about as blogger is the mental impact. If you’re working hard on a piece, it can be the mental equivalent of running a marathon!

We can all feel lack of inspiration and sometimes the words just don’t come to our minds. And it becomes one hell of a task to do a very simple blog! The good news is that there are some things we can do to improve our skills, but also give ourselves the mental rejuvenation we need!

Surround Yourself with Inspiration

Not just your writing space, but the immediate surroundings. For example, is your bedroom conducive to inspiration? If it’s not, then it’s time to start peppering pieces of art, literature, and movies around so that you are continually inspired.

Whether it’s just a word here or a concept there. There are also some handy hints on Writetodone.com to find some inspiration if the words really aren’t reaching your fingertips! Read More

4 New Year’s Resolutions That You Should Consider This Year

New year is the perfect time for a fresh start in your life. It’s great because you can leave the past behind you and aim to improve one (if not more) aspects of your life. We call these new year’s resolutions and in general, people start them on the first day of the new year so that they can wipe their slate clean for the coming year. Here are the top new year’s resolutions that people choose to take on, and how you can do it too.

Weight loss

The choice to lose weight in the new year has to be among the top chosen all over the world. It’s a chance to forget about the naughty eating that you’ve been doing (especially over the festive period,) and getting yourself back into shape by losing the excess weight. Many people struggle to do this alone because of tempting foods and also losing sight of what is actually healthy. If you feel like you might find it hard to lose weight alone, why not attend a weight watchers meeting or something similar? It will give you the support of the group and allow you to lose weight in a healthy way.

Financial stability

Many people long for financial stability at all points of life, but as each new year comes along it’s a great time to decide to concentrate on getting your finances in order. This might be by taking on extra hours at work, or even finding yourself a second job. There are loads of ways to make extra money in your spare time. However, if you’re in a large amount of debt on your credit card it can be hard to see a silver lining. There is such a thing as a federal government credit card debt relief program that may be able to help you, so it’s definitely worth the read.
