My house survey

I received this ‘challenge’ via e-mail! It’s just some cute little questions that you might not think to ask others about otherwise. And it’ll give you a little insight to the rest of my life! After reading through, I’d love for you all to take the time to fill it out as well. You can reply through a comment or even post it on your own blog to share with the world wide web!

Household chore I actually enjoy…

The thing with me is, I LOVE when things are clean and in order to my house. If there are dirty dishes, laundry lying about, or even really dusty counter tops, there is something in me that wants to cringe. The conflict here is that I actually don’t enjoy one bit of cleaning…. However I know it’s just something that has to get done for my sanity. Luckily, Colt’s feelings are similar and he helps out a lot! But, if I absolutely had to pick, I would say that I enjoy vacuuming! Mainly because it’s easy enough to turn up the tunes and dance all over while doing it. 🙂

Before company arrives I…

Hide the doggy toys and put my dishes away! The dog toys in my home are quite plentiful, especially now that we have 2. Some times there are even socks lying around that the dogs are weirdly obsessed with playing with! It’s my quick-tidy method so that the house looks half decent.

I hate to shop for….

BRAS! Ughhh, don’t get me wrong. I love getting new bras, it’s just the act of having to actually try them on that bugs me. It doesn’t help that I seem to always struggle with the sizing and need assistance!

I have a style crush on…

I have to say either Emma Watson because she is so elegant and timeless and sophisticated. Or Blake Lively, who always seems to effortlessly rock any sort of trend and always so well put together. I have to say I also follow Jessica Alba on instagram and I love her style as I feel like I can relate to it the most! It consists of a lot of trendy clothing but also many comfortable pieces mixed in, like leggings and tights and flowy tops. I live for comfy clothes! Yoga leggings every day.

How did I ever live without….

My dog. My friends (although that wasn’t for long as my closest friends have been in my life since our kinder years), my boyfriend. All have significantly changed my life and shaped me into being the person I am today. I never thought that I would even be as much of a dog person as I am today, I love my puppy so unconditionally and it shows a whole other side to living life more selflessly.

What I’m into now../Things I’m Loving Monday 7

I got the idea to post this segment from the wonderful Julie Flagan over at pbfingers.com. It’s a little survey type of blog which goes over some cute topics and is a fun read. It’s summing up the “things that I’m into” at this moment in my life based on the topics given. I’m also hoping you’ll participate and respond with your personal answers to the things you’re currently into! I would LOVE to hear it. It’s sort of similar to my regular weekly blog post of ‘Things I’m Loving’, so I thought I’d post it as a combo!

Celebrity on Instagram

–> hands down, Kaley Cucuo-Sweeting. I have a bit of a girl crush on her and that all I want is for her to be my best friend. She is an animal lover who posts a number of pictures of her adorable adoptive pets (which I love because I too adopted my Tanner!) and she posts hilarious – and REAL – things about her life. Think-late night McDonald’s trips and junk food. Yay! Turns out celebrities eat like real people! I’ve also always enjoyed the wonderful postings of Karena and Katrina from toneitup.

Friend on instagram

My wonderful and dearest friend, Lisa! She’s a fitness and health addict like myself, so she’s always posting her yummy recipes and workouts which keep me motivated and proud of her!

cocktail

Personally, I’m not much of a cocktail gal. Typically in the summer I stick to Caesars, but now with the seasons changing and weather getting a littler chillier, I’d have to turn my preference over to a warmer drink- probably coffee and peppermint schnapps or baileys.

food indulgence

Cinnamon raisin bread is my absolute favourite.

Also peanut butter.

Also these chickpea brownies.

beauty products

Benefit-Benetint-rose-tinted-lip-cheek-stain-review-with-swatches

This new benefit cheek and lip tint in dusty rose! I never thought I would like this product as much as I do, but it gives such a nice natural looking glow and stays all day.

way to wind down

(Or wind up?) My 6 am yoga class.

At night, I’ve been loving this new massage bed at my gym.. Sooo relaxing.

And also my usual scented candles I’m currently loving raspbaerry peach macaroon by Bath and Bodyworks

This pretty pink necklace! I love my statement necklaces and I brought this one out this weekend.

 

Kay guys, now it’s your turn to tell me the things you’re into for all of those topics!

Hi! I’m Jamie. I am a young, single woman with a passion for life, health, fitness and running. My life has revolved around healthy living ever since I can remember, coming from a health-conscious and active family. Just like anyone else, I have had my fair share of ups and downs in the health department. I have gone through many trial and error experiences, I have been through the good, the bad, the ugly and some outright just emotional things with my health, but in the end of it all I have found a way to live contently and focus on health in terms of the most important factor – the way I FEEL. I am an overall health enthusiast and and am always looking for ways to gain knowledge of how to become a better person and to learn new things in order to improve my well-being.

Take a look over my blog – I love to share all the information which I have attained over the years of my research and my constant search of new information to help me feel happy and healthy. All that I wish for is to help you attain the information you need to be your best and happiest self!
