Mixed Berry Yogurt Bar Pops



Ahhhh Summer is Almost Over! Can you believe it?? Well ..summer may be almost over but I have a sweet treat to share with you today! I'm such lover of sweet things! I like anything sweet, especially yogurt bars. I always buy the ones from the store (that are in the ice cream section) but then after reading the ingredients I thought, well... I could probably make my own with the same items I make my smoothies with. Which is what I did. I made these super super simple yogurt bars. And of course after I make them I go on pinterest and find even more awesome recipes for yogurt bars. Which I will definitely be using in the future, But I am very happy and proud of my little bars and they taste so delicious. Perfect for this heat that we currently have in Arizona.

You Will Need

Chobani Vanilla Greek Yogurt
Mixed Frozen Berries (Or Fresh Berries)
Honey
Optional: Splash Of Milk



I like to start with mixing my honey and berries. I love coating the berries in honey, so that I know there sweet and tasty for when me mix everything together.
(its like salting you pasta before adding the salt)



Mix It ALL UP! You Can taste it and add a little more honey if you would like. 



Fill Up Your Popsicle Trays (Yesss! this can get a little messy, but it taste so yummy....licks spoon)



Once its all done, pop it in the freezer over night and enjoy!!!

My Quick Bedroom Cleaning Routine


I love Saturday Mornings! I get to turn on my tunes and get to cleaning. I currently listen to jidenna (little bit more) On Repeat!! It just puts me in a cleaning mood or I listen to a spotify playlist. When I'm not in the mood to do a deep cleaning I like to do this simple cleaning routine. I'm usually done within 10-30 minutes depends on if I want to do some extra cleaning. Hope You enjoy and Happy Cleaning!



Throw Any Trash Away
I tend to have a lot of drinks next to my bed (dont judge) I'm not the only one


I put away anything that was out or left on the floor.

How To Have a Productive Online Class {Back To College}


1. Treat Your Class Like A Regular In Person Class
One problem that people forget is just because its an online class doesn't mean it shouldn't be taken as serious as an in person class. It is a class you paid for and it counts towards your GPA. Remember That!

2.Set Up A Class Binder
I always set up a binder dedicated to each class. It doesn't have to be a 3 ring binder, it can also be a folder with pockets. 3 ring binders just work best for me when it comes to organizing.
I Include in my binder
-Class Syllabus
-Assignments
-Print Outs
-Due Dates
-Anything related to the class I try to include in my binder. That way I can always take my binder anywhere and I have my assignments in there, if I need to remember something.


3.Stay Organized
Make sure you have a calendar or planner with assignments due and deadlines. Always stay on top of your work load. The more work you do at the beginning the easier it is towards the end. Its way to hard to play catch up with online classes, so always stay organized and on top of everything.



4.Set Aside Time Everyday
This is such a key component to having a productive online class. SET ASIDE TIME!!! On your lunch break you can work on a paper or whenever you have down time work on something. You can always set days to work on your class work. If you bust out work during the week, the weekend will be for relaxing and partying. Or if its easier for you, do your work on the weekends. Just always set aside time. Online classes were made to be flexible.

5. Log and write [EVERYTHING] With online classes, if things are out of site, they are out of mind. So always remember to write down everything that you may forget later.


6. Don't take online classes if you don't like working from home. I love being in my own space (in my bed) working on papers. I can focus so much easier. If you are not that type of person then online classes with definitely be a struggle for you. Discipline is Essential


I hope you found this super helpful, if there is anything I missed that you do to have a productive online class, let me know in the comments below.  Also if you have any questions about online classes, let me know as well. I'd love to answer them for you.

Happy Back To College

It's My Birthday What I've Learned?



Another year down and I'm so excited to be 25. My birthday was august 4, #leoseason. Its so funny because certain ages you turn, make you excited for your birthday. Don't get me wrong! I'm always always excited for my birthday but this year I was extra excited. (how many time did I just say excited )lol I'm 25 years old wooooo! (saying out loud)  I can literally remember turning 21 and not doing anything for my birthday that year and thinking my life would be in this crazy place at 25 years old. Truth be told I thought I would have kids and be this stay at home mom and live in the suburbs , but life had another plan for me and i'm am pretty happy with where I am today. I am so grateful for everything that I have now, and every positive thing that has happened in my life up to this point.

What I really wanted to talk about was everything that I've learned this year. I have done a post like this in the past ----> link here if you would like to read that one. I feel every year we learn something new and there is always a huge lesson we all have every year so i just wanted to share a few of mine and maybe they are lessons you have learned as well.



1. God Always Comes First
This has honestly been the {Biggest Lesson} I've learned and It keeps me so grounded and thankful. I wouldn't be anything If I didn't have God on my side looking after me. He should always be at the forefront in any decision you make or hard times you are going through. Always seek out God and keep him close to you. I think sometimes, when we are upset in life or disappointed we tend to push everyone out, and God is not one person to push out of your life. He is always here to guide us and help us on this journey of life. So putting God first in my decisions and how I carry myself throughout my life has been one of the biggest and greatest lessons learned!

2. Patience
This one is a hard one, because nothing happens over night. Things take time. We as people take time to develop and become better. They say it takes 21 days to break a habit so nothing is instant gratification. And usually anything that is instant can be taken away just as fast as it was given. I would say its definitely better to be patient and understand the process, and go through the process no matter what it is.

3. Put In Work
I laugh at this one because, Man.. putting in work is not just a saying. It is actual work. When you want something you will do everything to get there. even if its late nights, early mornings. You have to put in that time and quality. When you put work into anything you will always see a result. but if you never put in the work you will  always say "ill never get there" but you never put in the work to see if you will get there. Progress is progress, even if its slow. The more work you put into something the more you will get out of it.

4. Love Yourself Hard
You matter so much!!!! so you always have to look out for yourself. Take care of yourself and just be happy as the person you are. Learn everything you can about yourself. What you like what you dislike. What makes you happy! Discover a hobby or crafts that you like.





Hope you enjoyed this post and Until next time!

How I Style My Bedside Cart



Well Hello There!

Hope you all are well and happy! Ive been going back and fourth with how I wanted to style my bedside cart. I always knew I wanted a cart next to my bed, ever since I trolled Pinterest and saw how cute they were. I originally had this cart in my bathroom, then I used it for my desk/craft area and it finally ended up as my beside cart. I have to say I completely love having this. I use it to prop up my laptop or phone when I want to watch Hulu plus. I can roll it over and use it as an eating tray if I wanted to. It's so versatile and on TOP of that it is the cutest!!! color {Turquoise.}


I wanted the top to be easy access so I included some pens and some of MY frequently accessed notebooks. [Little secret] about this notebook on top. It actually came black and white and I penciled in the color, It came out surprisingly good, in my opinion.  I also keep my water here because at night I always always get thirsty. Who else gets super thirsty at night?!



This small wire basket is from target, it was only 3 dollars (in the dollar section) and you can use it to store small things you want next to your bed (chap stick, lotion etc) and this white vase and the faux flowers are from Ikea.





 Second row is most of my books, the books that I'm currently reading are in another spot but these are just where I keep them.


 Third shelf I added these bright yellow acrylic boxes that I purchased from the container store. They were actually on super clearance and I got them for 6 dollars and they are originally 20 something. I was so happy because I really wanted these every time I went there. (Which was every other weekend)

P.S They are empty. Let me know if you have any suggestions on what I should put in them. I had spare notepads and pens in them before but that just wasn't working for me.






 And there it is, my simple bed side cart! I hope you get inspired and share some tips on how you style your cart in the comments below. Happy Organizing and Decorating!
