breakfast NOW! Please 

Do you love a delicious quick breakfast? I mean come on I’m starving after being awake for 10 minutes and I need food quick. My favorite is eggs and a side of turkey bacon. 2 sunny side fried eggs with spicy turkey bacon  🌶  first you take some oil you can use cooking oil or coconut oil heat it on medium high crack the eggs into the oil add salt and pepper (add chilli flakes and garlic powder for some extra flavor) after the yolk looks a bit dry you flip the egg and fry the yolk. If you’d like the yolk still a bit runny then fry it for it a minute. If you want to fry the yolk through fry it for 2-3 minutes max. Remove eggs and now for the spicy turkey bacon. In the same pan add 2 slices of turkey bacon sprinkle cajun powder on it then flip it and sprinkle powder on that side too (make sure to turn the exhaust on) sizzle to your liking (I like mine crispy) Usually I have coffee and a slice of mixed grain toast. 

Sometimes I’m in the mood for something on the fruity side. I love mixing some brown sugar into plain yogurt and layering it with mixed berries and granola you can add a cookie to garnish the parfait. You can also replace the yogurt with smoothies or flavored yogurt of your choice. Berries can be replaced with bananas and dark chocolate morsels. 

Breakfast is very important and sometimes you just don’t feel like eating anything to heavy. If you really dislike eating in the morning then eat a handful of almonds. Not only do almonds give your energy but they’re rich in fat and great for your brain.

“Where’s the receipt from Costco?”

 My husband has taught me many ways to save. One thing I’m thankful for is his obsession to save receipts. Have you ever picked up food and ended up being disappointed? I sure have, if you’re disappointed after paying for something you should inform the establishment. There are also times when you rush to purchase something and it ends up expired (my mom taught me to check dates before purchasing when I was 7) if you have a receipt chances are you can get your money back or something not expired in exchange. In the picture above I am posing proudly near my fridge which has Costco receipts on it. These receipts are a reminder to return a few items. My husband taught me how saving receipts saves money. A lot of places will take back items and give you store credit.

So ladies and gentlemen whenever you’re grabbing a quick nail polish from CVS or George Foreman from Costco it’s important to take your receipts and store them in a folder somewhere with your bills and other paper work.

Suede fringe boots 

Since 2009 I’ve been a member of Shoe Dazzle, it’s a personalized selection of shoes every month for $39.95. You can skip the month the first five days of each month if you don’t want shoes that month. Shipping is free and if you didn’t like the shoes for whatever reason returns are free. The only catch is that if you want your money back they take a percentage or you can get a credit. I know I’ll find something at Shoe Dazzle so I always take the credit.  Living in New York and spending most of my time in the city I learned that it only broke my heart (and wallet) when I spent a lot of money on shoes and wore them out more than twice. I’m not the type of girl to take extreme caution while walking so I guess I don’t deserve $100 heels. 

Shoe Dazzle is has the most fashionable selection of shoes. They cover every season, every occasion, and not to mention every height. Not to mention Shoe Dazzle shoes have been more comfortable for me than Aldo. Since 2009 I’ve received a lot of shoes from Shoe Dazzle. They feature celebrities and stylist as well. They had Rachel Zoe before. This month they have picks from Keke Palmer. 

In September I got a pair of comfy chic boots. The boots are beautiful Bordeaux color. I’ve been wearing them so much because they look so good and are so comfortable. I can wear them to work easily too. Besides those there a pair of faux suede fringe boots I’m obsessed with check them out below 

They have a comfortable heel and go above the knee. They’re also very warm. I can wear them with jeans, dresses, skirts, leggings pretty much anything. 

If you haven’t ever tried Shoe Dazzle I recommend giving it a try. Shoes get ruined so easily I really do enjoy being a member.
