Kicking Off Summer…

This post was sponsored Optimum Nutrition as part of Influencer Activation and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

There’s no better time in the year than Spring and Summer to enjoy outdoors activities, and for someone who lives in the Midwest, I cannot tell you how much this time is anticipated! We Midwesterners can’t just see a warmer weather without being overly excited to enjoy some sun-filled outdoors activities.

Can you really blame us? Let’s break out the snacks and refreshment and let’s head outdoors; but before anything and all things, let’s not forget the most important meal of the day. Kashi GO Cereal -Peanut Butter Crunch is a favorite on the breakfast table, and I have to admit that we also love to snack on them. It’s good that this cereal is plant-based and packed with 10 gram of protein in every serving; The Bonus is that, you can’t deny how great this crunchy, peanut butter goodness cereal tastes. Yummy πŸ™‚

From biking, to beach times, to entertaining family and friends, Summer just could not come any sooner; and we know there’s no summer entertainment without some delicious meals or snacks and refreshments. Some of the most coveted drinks at our get-togethers are Anheuser Busch Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold and  Lime Cactus. If you enjoy a light and refreshing lime taste, Michelob ULTRA Lime Cactus is for you. On the other hand, Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold is a light lager with a superior golden taste.

It’s good to know that it contains no artificial colors and flavors and is triple filtered and brewed. I also like that it’s made with organic grains which not only leaves you with a fresh and pure taste; but also gives you that guilt-free feeling of drinking a better version of similar beverages. In all cases and circumstances, it’s important to drink responsibly and not to drive under influence.

Summer calls for a lot of outdoor activities and one of the things I always try to remind myself of is to always have natural and delicious snacks at hands at all times; especially when kids are involved. Trust me it’s a lifesaver. Some of favorite are Optimum Nutrition Salted Toffee Pretzel Protein Crisp. I love that they are protein bars, but they are very unique and delicious with crispy texture. Another favorite is Chocolate Donut Cake Bites.

They are deliciously whipped and coated with chocolate flavored frosting. I love that they are a convenient grab and go option for both active kids and adults. These snacks are not only delicious, but they keep you fueled for the day.

If you haven’t made up your mind yet as to if you should try these yummy snacks for your summer time activities, wait no longer. Go to your nearest Walmart now and thank me later.

We love to enjoy precious and unforgettable moments, and while we have our own Summertime traditions, we also love to experience new things and explore new places; Summer is just perfect to get out and get active and Walmart is inviting everyone to enter their Get out Get active Sweepstakes.

Go enter HERE now to win some awesome prizes, including a Schwinn Sidewinder bike. For official rules please visit GetActiveThisSummer.com

Schwinn Sidewinder bikes with their steel mountain-style frame and front and suspension ride so smoothly and are perfect for your summer biking activities. Their light and strong alloy rims provide added durability and stability. I also love the fact that the bikes have adjustable seat to accommodate all heights. Another great feature of the Schwinn Side bikes is that the front disc brake and rear linear pull brake combine for reliable all-condition stopping. If you ask me, all these features are all important in choosing a good and reliable bike, but for more information on Schwinn Bikes, you can click on this link.

Memorial Day Weekend At The Beach

Polka-dot-swimming-suit.

Hello darlings,

I hope you had a great Memorial Day Weekend. What a great way to kick off Summer by spending time with family at a lake beach! I couldn’t have asked for a better swimming suit than my new polka dot swim dress from Always for me. It’s such a cute swim dress and the fit is great and very comfortable; plus it’s polka dot. πŸ™‚ As you can tell, this swim dress made me feel sexy without showing too much skin, and it’s perfectly made for the curvy ladies like myself. Wouldn’t you agree?

Blooming In Spring

beautiful-spring-dress

Hello darlings,

Spring got me all blooming; and I can’t complain. When I attended the Spring Blogger Bash with Bachman’s in Bloom a couple of weeks ago, I knew I was going to be in a happy place because your girl loves flowers of all sorts; and this event was all about flowers!!! Bonus: the most interesting behind the scenes of how to grow them and protect them!

Getting to learn and experience all things flowers from the well-known and loved Bachman’s in Minneapolis, was not only educational and such a beautiful experience in its own, but also so much fun.

A group of wonderful bloggers were all prepared to take in the experience and we were warmly welcome and we also enjoyed light refreshments, pizzas, cookies, and more. Another bonus: we got to go home with  goodie bags filled with, well, flowers and plants, and gardening-related goodies, how obvious!

One of the highlights of the event was the pretty and creative selfie station set up in the growing ranch. Everyone of us wanted to take some cute pictures there! #Bloggerslife… and it was so much fun and we took some cute pics! I did manage to take pictures around the ranch, because who wouldn’t with some beautiful and colorful flowers everywhere?!

It was such a loving and great experience and I got to make a new friend! She’s such a beautiful soul and we both just hit it off right away like we knew each other for the longest time. I even went a little emotional and shared a lengthy Instagram post here along a picture with her.

Other than that, Bachman’s made a girl happy and blooming on a beautiful Spring day; and the pictures here can certainly attest to that! πŸ™‚

GhostBed Luxury Sheets

Fashion-and-lifestyle-blogger

TGIF everyone, 

Or in my world, thank God for everyday! As I’m writing this article in my bed made in GhostBed Luxury Sheets, I have to give gratitude on how humbled and blessed I am to actually be doing things I love to do, and having the flexibility and the freedom to choose my own schedule, especially when I can do those things in the comfort of my very own bed.

What makes it even more pleasant these days, is the luxury feel of GhostBed Sheets. These Sheets are said to be the world most comfortable and luxurious sheets, and I can see why. This is not a hyperbole! The sheets are silky and smooth to the feel and the unique & luxurious blend of Supima Cotton, plus Tencel Fibers GhostGrip allow this fitted sheet to stay on securely. It never pops off; and that I love even more.

We could feel the difference right at our first night sleep of using these sheets. They are incredibly soft without feeling fuzzy and they are also very cooling. This sheet set will work great on almost any mattress, but it’s ideal to pair it with any GhostBed mattress. which I would love to try next, after falling in love with their pillows and now their sheets!

I honestly thought the set – which came with 1 top sheet, 1 fitted sheet and 4 pillow cases – was a little costly, but I wouldn’t mind paying a little extra money for their incredible quality and the great comfort they provide.

I would highly recommend these sheets; and if you are in the market for some new ones, go ahead and give them a try! They offer Free Shipping and Industry leading 3-Year Warranty. And oh, tell them I sent you! They’ll treat you right! πŸ˜‰

Easter Best | Cute Floral Dress

multicultural-minnesota-fashion-blogger

Happy Thursday darlings,

We’re almost at the end of the week, and I’m super excited for the weekend. Who else is!? πŸ™‚

Black women in cute orange floral spring dress

Easter was a few days ago, but I had to share with you guys this cute floral dress I wore to church. This dress has been sitting in my closet with the tag still on for a few months now; and even though I had something else planned for Easter, I was just drawn to it.

It could be the simplicity and the cute floral prints of the dress. Either way, I’m glad I followed my gut and wore it… sometimes, less is more!

What do you think of this look? Before I go though, I would like to leave you guys with some words of encouragement: Whatever you’re going through in this moment or whatever you’re working on, keep pushing and before you give up, think about why you held on for so long. You may not be there yet, but you are closer that you think.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day! 

Lots of love, 
Edwige
