Piece of Cake 002

I find it hard to believe that it’s already been a month since my last Piece of Cake post. But, alas, here we are at the end of April already.

It was quite the month with lots of great recipes, a little bit of travel, some snow {making it the coldest April in a looonnggg time}, and finally the signs of spring.

So let’s get on with this Piece of Cake edition, shall we?

Piece of Cake: Nourish

For those of you who follow along on Instagram or even Facebook, I posted this picture a few weeks ago. It’s a super delicious grilled shrimp salad with a homemade blackberry dressing. I’ve been hard at work this month creating a brand new meal plan that’s dedicated to summer produce.

You can check out the current meal plan here. Did you know that when you purchase one meal plan, you’ll receive all subsequent {or past} meal plans for FREE?

I love to develop recipes that are healthy and still super flavorful. So I will release a new meal plan about every 5-6 months. These recipes are some of my favorites, and with summer quickly approaching, you won’t want to miss out on this latest edition. I know I’ve been enjoying creating {and eating} these recipes. So I’m super excited for you to get them too!

Piece of Cake: Work it out

This past weekend my dad, mother-in-law and I all ran in a race here in Madison. It’s called Crazylegs and had over 12,000 participants for the run and walk.

It was cooler than expected, but the sun was shining and made for a great five mile run. Wearing bright colors is a must for the race so that you can actually be found by those who come to watch.

These leggings were awesome for running! They’re super comfortable, inexpensive, and stayed up the entire time while running. They would also be great for yoga.

Piece of Cake: Lookin’ Good

Earlier this month I went to a conference in Houston, TX for ULTA. Each year many of ULTA’s vendors come to display either new or existing products in-store to store managers. The show was so much fun!

Many vendors give out samples of their products, which was an awesome bonus. I received this Tarte concealer and brush. This stuff is soo nice. It blends in super well and makes my skin look and feel great. Plus I love that it’s a wand for application.

And if you’re looking for a way to display your new make-up, this make-up organizer makes your bathroom look like a spa.

My new favorite sandals: I just bought these sandals from Target. They’re so perfect for summer, slide on easily and are super cute. Plus they’re under $25, which is my perfect price point.

I was also feeling super tempted to get these sandals. They come in navy and red, and I want both. Help me decide which ones!

Piece of Cake: One last slice

Remember last month when I told you I was reading a book about the Golden State Killer? They just cracked the case…40 years later!

14 days to healthy: I just released a new FREE 14-day Healthy Living Challenge that I’m super excited about. If you’re looking for ways to start to live a healthier and happier life, then take this challenge.

On my wish list: this light pink ice cream maker. With over 4,000 reviews and 4.5 stars, I think it’s getting added to my cart pretty soon! But if you don’t have an ice cream maker, then check out this simple 3-ingredient banana ice cream made in a food processor.

We also recently got new living room furniture. I’m on the hunt for some nice end tables. These may be making their way into our home soon too. 😁

Well I think that about wraps up the second edition of Piece of Cake. Watch for next month when I share our vacation to Myrtle Beach and Charleston, SC!
