Brendan’s Original Lemon Lime Sports Drink

I prepared this drink and took it after a workout. You can take it at any time of the day because it’s very refreshing and will keep you hydrated. Compared to other drinks or smoothies, this one is really simple and easy and the benefits are many.

You don’t need many ingredients and if you like lemonades, you will love it!

  • 1 cup water

Almond Butter Hearts

This has to be my favorite recipe I’ve recreated so far. The taste is amazing. Soft but crunchy with just the right amount of sweet. It has lots of ingredients that boost your energy so you can consume it before a workout, after for recovery or as a snack, which is my case.

Some of my friends where able to try it my samples and I was lucky enough to save a few to freeze for future snacks.

Working from home has its perks. There are some days I just want to stay cozy in my pj’s while I get creative cooking a new recipe, designing or writing for my blog.

Today was one of those days and the perfect timing with the gloomy weather to stay in my pajamas.

I must say The Dreamland Company nailed it with this nightgown!

It comes in a beautiful bag. Which could also be the perfect gift. It’s available in 6 solid colors and 3 cute prints, and best of all; it’s designed to fit almost anyone.

PAJAMA BAG

Since I like fun prints my favorite one is the sunglasses design. The loose cotton design is very confortable, and the mid length sleeves keep me warm when the A/C is freezing during the night.
