Yesterday, I got a shipment of the fall Mary Kay products that I have been highly anticipating. Getting a big box of Mary Kay is like Christmas for Consultants. And any girl, really. Who doesn’t want a whole box full of makeup?!
I definitely have my work cut out for me today. Having to try all those new pieces? Oh, darn 😉 Expect a review soon!
Last night, I finally took the chance to really chill out. I put an end to all my work or chores, made myself a mug cookie, lit my new candle, painted my toe nails, and sat down to read a good book.
My perfect way to chill out. What a relief!
Is it Fall Yet?
I don’t know about you, but I am so beyond ready for fall. I know fall means winter is just right around the corner, but I could care less. This 90+ degree weather we’re having this week? No thanks!
I’m already stocked up on my fall candles (but it’s too hot to burn them!) and I’m already craving all-things pumpkin and spice. I woke up today in the mood for fall foods, so I made some pumpkin spiced iced coffee.
- 1 banana, frozen
- 1 cup coffee, room temperature or cold
- 2 tbsp. pumpkin puree (canned)
- 1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
- dash of cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
- a few ice cubes (3-5)
Throw in the blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
This drink was like a combination between iced coffee and a frappe. If you want it to be more frappe like, freeze the coffee beforehand and let it thaw just a bit before making it. I liked it with the smoother consistency because it was easier to drink.
Very refreshing for a still-hot morning, for sure.
I also paired it with a breakfast quesadilla, which, if you’ve never had, needs to change asap!
A great pinterest find, of course.
Well, it’s time to get to work for me! See ya!
Questions for You:
- Does fall make you all giddy inside or does it make you dread the coming cold weather?
- Are you adventurous with your makeup looks or do you keep it tame? I’m going to be trying a lot of colors and looks that I normally wouldn’t wear, but I’m so excited to experiment!
