Homemade Almond Butter Recipe

Homemade snickers!!! SOOO much better than the nasties you buy at the store! I got the recipe here! Just added more peanuts :)

My Homemade Cinnamon Vanilla Almond Butter

- 2 cups of organic raw almonds ( I roasted them on 350 for 10 mins to get a better flavor)
- 1 tbsp. of cinnamon
- 1/2 tbsp. of vanilla extract
- optional a sweetener of your choice ( I did not add one)

Let me just say that making your own almond butter is SO SO easy peasy. Organic almond butter is like $7 a jar at the store! As you can see it made a regular canning Mason jar size full of it { and then some } It is sooooooo good I can't even tell you! I used the Vitamix to make it but of course if you don't have this magical machine then you can use a food processor!! Would you guys want to see more recipes? Let me know, I have been bitten by the domesticated bug this week haha.

Relaxing and Rest Days

Hi my lovies! Boy have I missed you. Today I want to talk about one of my favorite things that I don't get to do very often anymore; and that is relaxing. And I mean, no phone, no computer---> pure bliss.
I love me some me time! And to do that I love taking nice relaxing bubble baths with a glass of champs. As you can see below
I meaaan other than swapping the tub for a beach, what could be better???

Now there are many ways to relax as well, even working out helps me relax which brings me to my next point: rest days!!
So recently I started doing a lot of cardio and overdid it pulling my hip flexor { ouchie! }
I was doing 10k's like errrrrday and I wasn't taking rest days! Which are super duper important when doing any kind of exercise, tsk, tsk Em.

So how do you take your rest days and what helps you relax?

Would ya'll wanna see my healthy guac recipe?? Let me know! I put this on salads, eat it with fresh veggies, put it on fish...I mean the list is endless!! SO good!

the most amazing Grey Goose lemon
Any time I go out I always try to have the bartender make me something with some kind of fresh juice and a clear alcohol like vodka etc. If I drink, I don't skimp on the alc. Its gotta be the best of the best! Which in my opinion is Grey Goose haha.

New Shades + More

So.totally.obsessed. with my new Ray Bans!! I've been eyeing this particular combo since it came out in December and have yet to see someone in person wearing them. So I decided with my coupon and gift card in hand I would purchase them for spring/summer. What do you think? If you know me, you know all I wear are Rays haha I just love them all.

On to other news, I recently got a full time Esthetician job which I LOVE, but it leaves me little time for blogging which I also love. These have been how my days have gone as of late: wake up, get ready for work, work, gym sesh, then home to eat dinner and sleep! So I am trying to figure out how to be better at multi-tasking { tsk, tsk em }. I am the WORST at it haha but I hope you all can understand and stick it out just a little bit longer till I figure my sh!t stuff out.

Rays here!
Paula Bianco scarf here!

Much love to you all!
