Share your Summer with Coca-Cola

This past weekend the weather was so nice! I couldn't resist a little trip to the beach. So my friends and I headed out to the beach to hang out, play some games, and enjoy each other's company. There's a game that's pretty big here called corn hole that we love to play and having it on the beach is always the best so that's what we did! Friends are the best. It's so important to me to be able to spend time with them. We all get so busy throughout the Summer, so being able to take some time to relax with each other is great! I have some of the best friends a girl could ask for.

Drinks are a definite must when it comes to going to the beach. There's nothing better than sipping an ice cold drink when I come out of the water. It always tastes like I dumped a thing of salt into my mouth when I'm in the ocean. For this beach outing I went to my local Walmart and grabbed some fun Coca-Cola for everyone. Yes, fun! As in they had names on them and other titles.




Walmart has the widest and organized selection of their Coca-Cola personalized 20 oz bottles. Their 20 oz. personalized bottles are perfect for all sorts of occasions. I grabbed some 20 oz. bottles with actual names on it and I grabbed a pack of cans that also have titles on it such as adventurer, bestie, and grill master! If you're looking for a certain name it's easier than ever now. Walmart now carries bins that make it simple to find what you're looking for and they have so many different names. Here is a list of Walmart stores that carry a large selection of the 20 oz personalized bottles here and if you can't find your store on the list, you can go to any Walmart store to find these! Want some ideas for sharing, you can look here! To me nothing is better than relaxing and doing what I love with my friends and my friends were all sure glad to have some yummy refreshment!











Cheers to this Summer!



What are your favorite labeled drinks?!

Day to Night Beach Waves by John Frieda®

#MyBeachBlonde #CollectiveBias


Summer is here and in full swing! Lots of sunny days, hanging out with friends and family, and days at the pool or beach. I'm living back at the beach now, which is where I'm originally from and I'm loving it. I'm definitely a beach girl over a mountain girl. We've already been spending most of our Summer days at the beach here. 

I feel like in the Summer the days are always so packed with things to do. Wake up then go to the beach/pool and then for me it's usually go out to eat at a restaurant then go hang out with friends. That transition from being gone all day to, well...being gone even more can be tough when you want to freshen up and get ready. I've got just the stuff to help. I went to my local Walmart and got the John Frieda® Beach Blonde™ Sea Waves™ Sea Salt SprayBeach Blonde™ Cool Dip™ Shampoo, and the Beach Blonde™ Smooth Seas™ Conditioner.


All of the products work really well. The shampoo and conditioner have a nice, fresh minty smell! They're definitely great for helping to prep my hair for a beachy look. I really like the conditioner because it actually gets tangles out of my hair! Have you ever gotten a conditioner that doesn't do its job?? I sure have. The best product is the Beach Blonde™ Sea Waves™ Sea Salt Spray. I know it says blonde, but it's great for all hair colors and hair styles. Infused with sea salt it went onto my hair great. It didn't have that crunchy feeling that some other sprays have and this smell is amazing! Coconut! I feel so tropical wearing it. Honestly the smells alone sold me. I definitely made sure to spray it all throughout my hair to get it evenly textured.


I have some steps here on how I do a little day to night look. It's pretty simple and I'm sure you can come up with more elaborate hair styles, but I like simple. It's nice to have it in a braid during the day, especially at the beach and then it's able to really add more of those waves.

Memorial Day Shenanigans

Hello all! I hope everyone had a great weekend and a good Memorial Day. I'm very grateful for the past veterans who have served and put their time towards this country's freedom. I also have such a strong gratitude for those who are serving now. It was nice being able to spend time with my family on Memorial Day because family is what it's all about :)

Here is a silly little video with my brother and Dallin :)

Zesty Lime Onion Ring Burger

 This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #SpringIntoFlavor #CollectiveBias


Hanging out with my family eating good food is one of my favorite things to do! Especially now that it's Spring(don't worry Summer is almost here) it's so nice to be outside enjoying a good meal that you don't feel guilty eating after. I have a delicious recipe for a zesty lime onion ring burger that is sure to have everyone wanting more! A great recipe for the spring time that's healthy and tasteful. You can use any sort of burger you would like. We used black bean burgers and I headed to my Walmart close by and picked up some of these Alexia all-natural onion rings which is the icing on the cake for this burger! They were right with the other fries in the aisle.





Zesty Lime Onion Ring Burger

For this recipe you will need the Alexia onion rings, some feta cheese, and the zesty lime sauce.

Sauce:

-1/2 cup greek yogurt
-2 limes
-bunch of cilantro(we used 2 bunches)
-pinch of salt
-1/2 of a jalapeƱo

Mix all together in a blender.

It's pretty simple. Add whatever toppings you would like to your burger then the onion rings, some feta cheese, and the lime sauce. It really is a great combination of flavors and perfect for an outdoor dinner with the family.




It's so nice finding food that is all natural and contains no GMO's. Alexia all natural products have 0g trans fat products. They have such a variety of organic products to choose from. This burger would pair up so well with either their rosemary and sea salt fries or the Alexia sweet potato fries with sea salt. Yum!! I want it all!

Do you have any good ideas/recipes using onion rings?! Let me know in the comments! I love trying new recipes :)

Update on Life!

Something I've come to realize lately is that breaks are good. For instance, this whole semester has been one huge break for me as far as blogging goes. Life has just been so busy. I had 17 credits this past semester and I honestly needed to be focusing on my assignments everyday. I'm so happy this semester is over with to say the least! I just wanted to give a little update on here about what we've been up to! I will be back soon though. I actually miss blogging throughout the week. I have a lot of exciting things coming up, but for right now we are enjoying our couple of weeks off as we make our way to North Carolina for our new chapter in life!

Here are some pictures of the past few weeks :)

We had our first yard sale! Since we are moving across the country we needed to get rid of a lot! For our first time doing a yard sale, it was quite successful!

We went to Las Vegas for my birthday which was so fun!I love going there because the city is so alive and I don't mind the days at the pool ;)

Dallin graduated! I'm so proud of him. Next step...medical school in the Fall!

His family came down the weekend of his graduation. We were able to run a race together in our previous family reunion Avenger t-shirts.

We've been lucky to have this fun group of friends to hang out with while we have been here. It's sad to be leaving them for sure!

 Packed up, cleaned, and locked the doors for the very last time in Provo.

Now we're having a very relaxing time with his family at the cabin before we made the drive out East!

This past weekend we went to Las Vegas for my birthday and I thought I would document it this time. I loved Vegas. Dallin surprised me with tickets to the Lady Gaga cheek to cheek concert and it was amazing! Ahhh can I just go back please?!

kikki.K Planner Review

I can't tell you how excited I've been to write this post! First off, I'm a such a stationary addict, like where I get so excited for school to start; solely for the purpose of buying new notebooks and pencils. Second, I have an obsession with planners. For real, sometimes I buy two for one year...

I have a secret, I've now got a planner now that I will be using forever! I'm seriously in love with this planner. It's from kikki.K and it's amazing. It's real leather and the dividers are there so you can make them your own. It's perfect for keeping my life together. If I don't write something down I usually forget it. Here are my dividers and what I decided to do!



Here is what my planner looks like right when you open it up. How cute is that fox bookmark?! kikki.K also sells cute stickers and quote cards to decorate your planner with. I made these cute little paper clips as well to hold certain spots for me,

This is my inspiration tab. I got the flag idea from their YouTube channel. They have the cutest videos with ideas on what you can do. 

My to do tab :)

They also have the cutest cards. So I made a little holder for them so I can send out random notes to people :)

Behind the cards is my personal tab, which I will probably use to put my meal ideas for the week and different recipes.

My expenses tab. I need to be better at keeping our budget together and our payments organized.

My projects tab, which on the front I made a little folder to hold some cards with cute quotes on them. This tab will be used to keep my ideas for blog posts and what not. I also have some exciting things coming up in the next few months :) I've been wanting to do a YouTube channel for awhile now, but haven't had the guts to do one. So I'm finally putting one together, but there's another surprise with it! I'll keep you posted!


And my last tab is for favorites, which I'm thinking I will put things I've been wanting there.


I seriously loved decorating this planner and I can't put it down! Anyone else obsessed with planners??
