The Perfect Refresher For A Hiking Adventure

Thanks to Teavana for sponsoring this post, all opinions are 100% my own.
Hi there, Loves. 
If you follow me on Instagram then you likely have seen my insta-stories of my hiking adventures super early most Saturday mornings. I absolutely love the outdoors, and hiking is the one active thing I do that doesn't feel like a workout and I absolutely enjoy it. I love the adventure of captivating views, beautiful flora, warm strangers, animal and insect discovery, and all the beauty that comes with the outdoors. 
Once my hike is over, I'm usually in the mood for a tasty refresher to refill my fluids and refresh my body. My go to is Teavana , and I always make myself a fresh cold glass for my hiking adventure. One of my favorite flavors is the Citrus Lavender Sage which both smells and taste like heaven. I simply brew it in my Infusion Tea Pitcher which makes enough for two full  Cold Cup Glass
It's super easy to make. I simply add a few spoons of my Citrus Lavender Sage Tea into my Infusion Tea Pitcher, I let is sit there for a few minutes and then I put it in the refrigerator for about an hour to get it perfectly chill. In the mean time, I'll go ahead and get ready for my hike.
Once I am all dressed and lotion down with SPF, I pour my refreshing blend into my Cold Cup Glass, which actually keeps my drink cool for a long time. I then add a tad bit of Teavana® Belgian Rock Sugar using my cute Teavana® Perfectea™Spoon; just enough to add a bit of sweet and take my drink to the next level. This Citrus Lavender Sage Tea flavor so yummy and flavorful, you do not even have to add sugar. It's really that tasty and refreshing, I promise.  
Once I'm back down to ground level from my hike, I indulge in the tasty glory of this delicious iced tea and nothing beats being able to enjoy a delicious drink after an epic hiking adventure. 
Have you guys tried Teavana before and whats your favorite flavor? If you haven't tried them before here's your chance of winning one of the three (3) prizes happening in their sweepstakes right now.  Head over and enter. 
I do hope you guys enjoyed this post and that I have encouraged your next summer adventure. Maybe it's just you or maybe a family adventure. Either way, I urge you to get out this summer and make it fun. Don't forget to grab your Teavana, too. 
Thanks for reading, Loves.

My Living Room Tour With Apt2B

Thanks to Apt2B for partnering with me on this post. All opinions are 100% my own

Hi Guys,

Today’s post is a special post, as I am inviting you all into my home and private space, again. I’ve shared my master bedroom and bathroom on this blog before and now that I have finally had the chance to update my living room, I wanted to keep the intimacy going and I’m inviting you to see my living room.  For those who have been reading my blog for a while now, you may know that I moved into this home last year. It’s pretty much been a year, and we really wanted to get it into a cozy space. Truth be told, you cannot rush designing, redecorating, or fixing your home. For me, I did room by room, space by space and so here we are in my living room.
My vision for my living room was a light, fresh, airy, and cozy space.  I wanted it to be the place I can come home to, from a long day and relax with peace and calm. I also wanted it to be uplifting and encouraging. As a content creator, I’ m always looking for inspiration for my next project and my space has to reflect being able to accommodate that. I went scouting for the perfect store that fit my vibe and taste; and after scouring multiple websites, I found Apt2B. I love their price-point and the modern feel of their furniture and items. I knew right away that I would find the right pieces that I need for my space.
Before I had a two-piece couch set, a regular three-seater, and love seat. My guy and I love to cozy up in the evenings and on the weekends and we’ve always wished we had a sectional so this was our priority. Additionally, our living room has lots of space, and I thought about the functionality of a sectional couch and how we could potentially move it around in the future. I found this super gorgeous Monroe3 Piece Sectional and I got it in a stone color. Best-decision-ever! It’s enhances my space and adds that modern chic look I was going for. The tufted buttons add sophistication and a classic vibe. The size was absolutely perfect for our living room and if this was the only item in my living room, I’d still be happy.

To complement my couch, I went for this Annapolis Coffee Table. I chose a similar color to my couch as I knew it would balance out perfectly with my carpet and accessories. I also love the rustic chic vibe it has. It makes for perfect photo-ops and entertaining guests. My cute Christian Louboutin inspired Canvas you see on the wall (which) is my office area, is also from Apt2B. I had to have it too. 
I also went for this cute Marina Del Rey Ottoman. The texture and style of this ottoman was exactly what I wanted for my space. I love the rope-look details and I wanted to blend textures in my living room to add some flair to my space.

I went for this Deny Designs Credenza from Apt2B because I knew that it would make a statement and add contrast and color to my living room space. I was drawn to the polka dots and the beautiful aged gold legs. To me, it felt like a piece of antique but with a modern touch. Don’t you think so too?
As you can tell, my style is very simple but it is also flexible. With my newly upgraded living room, I can easily transition my pillows and throws, to change the look for different seasons. For the summer time, all the hues of blue and cream and grays are perfect for the season. I haven't decided what my colors will be for Fall but I promise to share them with you. 
Here are a few more shots from different angles so you can see more details.:

Have you guys shopped at Apt2B before and if so what did you get? If you plan on picking an item from them, I'd love to hear too. Here's a code APT2BLOVESKEYMA for 15% off your order. It's only good for one month so make your decision now and take advantage of this code. I hope you guys enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed shooting and sharing it with you. I can't wait to show you the rest of my home. 
I'm all ears for tips and tricks, especially wall art. I'm definitely going to put some focus on accentuating my walls next.

An Engagement That Calls For A Celebration With A Hallmark Signature Card

I was asked to participate in the #HallmarkAtWalgreens campaign, sponsored by Walgreens. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own 
Hi there, Loves!
For the past few months I have been living with so much excitement because my favorite cousin recently got engaged. Ahh!!!!. I have been living with internal bliss and I cannot contain my excitement for her. This engagement was a long time coming and when she sent me the photo and  text saying "guess what"? I literally was overcome by so many emotions of happiness. My cousin is very caring, loving, helpful, and smart. She is the type of person who would give her last to make anyone happy. She deserves all the happiness there is in the world.
This type of news called for a celebration so I ran to my local Walgreens where I know I am sure to find a huge selection of Hallmark Signature cards for engagement parties, bridal showers, weddings, and anniversaries. I wanted to find THE ONE to celebrate her engagement. I found this cute heart shaped one with pretty cursive details on the front and a cute note inside that says "can't wish you anything better, than what you're promising each other". She loves glitter and bling so this card was just fitting and perfect for her. I know she will have this card for years to come. She is very sentimental and she cherishes and appreciates greeting cards that has special meaning or holds special memories. Inside the card, I wrote well wishes to both her and her fiancé and I added a coded quote that we always text each other. It signifies love, trust, and family. 
Of course I had to get her a gift, and knowing how sentimental she is, I decided to get her her favorite flowers- sunflowers, favorite candles, and a personal touch of something romantic- a white lace bodysuit. I took her to one of her favorite coffee shops to have an intimate cousin-to-cousin celebration. I gifted her the Hallmark Card and additional gifts. She loved all the items in the package and that made me happy. The card was the topping for the gift I gave her because no gift is complete without a Hallmark card. Everything was perfect and we cheered to happiness, love, and prosperity. I cannot wait for the big day and I wish her so many blessings and happiness years to come. 
Do you guys have any special celebration such as a wedding, engagement, or anniversary coming up? What are your plans to celebrate that special time or that special person/s? Don't forget to get them one of these gorgeous Hallmark Signature cards, they are upscale, unique and comes in a variety of styles and tones. While you're picking up your next Hallmark card, through 7/19, there is a Text 2 Clip offer that you can get while in store on your Hallmark purchase. 
 A card can really help you say so much to someone you care about. Let me know your plans in the comment section. 
Thanks for swinging by.
