Yes – my tiny little secret for afternoon re-fueling is drinking a  5-hour ENERGY® shot when I’m on the run and I can’t stop for a coffee rush. I’m always in need of some type of pick-me-up in the afternoons, and these little shots do the trick quite nicely. When I was at CVS the other day filling a prescription, I noticed so many different flavors to choose from on the top shelf. I like to try different ones so I don’t get sick of the same old thing, so I was happy to see some variety. I was really excited to see some new & interesting versions such as extra strength grape – so I dropped one in my basket along with my usual pomegranate flavor. The black and purple bottle stared back at me and looked so exotic, it made me wonder what extra-strength is all about. #ThisIsMySecret

I love a sale – they had 6 packs that were buy 1 get 1 50%off!

Those little shots are perfectly small enough to fit in your bag, so you can pull one out when you need it. I had a really loooong day on Tuesday of last week, and as someone who works on her feet all day – it really helped perk me up when all I wanted was a nap. It’s probably because it’s packed with a dietary supplement that contains a blend of B-vitamins, amino acids, and essential nutrients. Would you believe me if I told you that it’s only 4 calories a bottle? Yep – it’s sugar free, zero carbs and no herbal stimulants whatsoever!

As for being a photo salesperson who sells portraits by day, being perky and talkative always helps my commission!

It’s a good thing that I found them on the shelf, because I may have missed them altogether. If you are in doubt and can’t find a 5-hour ENERGY® shot to purchase just be sure to scan the checkout area well before the cashier rings up your total. Check behind the credit card machine, and behind other mini candy displays… Sadly, they only have plain ‘ol regular flavor there.

You’re probably thinking, oh yuck – another meal replacement bar that tastes like chocolate covered chalk. Life Choice Meal Replacement bars are far from that reality because I’ve figured out a way to make them so yummy, you’ll be coming back for seconds. They are some of the best nutrition bars I have ever tasted in a very long time!

I was looking at Walmart in the area where they keep the cereals,snacks and granola bars and I found these. There was many other types to choose from including protein bars, but I wanted a total meal replacement . I’m always in a hurry every morning – that being said, I needed to find some of the best nutrition bars I could find to put in my purse so I can eat on my way to work while I drive. There’s nothing worse than a loud tummy rumbling for all to listen to. I don’t know about you, but my tummy rumbles practically talk when I’m hungry. #BarNutrition

So I decided to make something fun, because meal replacement bars can be pretty boring to eat alone.. Yogurt parfaits with using the White Chocolate Pretzel bar sounded more like it! Here’s what I came up with…

Step 1: First I chopped up a bar into tiny pieces so that it would fit nicely in the small mason jars that I like to use.

Step 2: Making sure it’s all in tiny little bits, I get my yogurt ready so I can begin layering..

Step 3: Spoon a little bit of your favorite yogurt into the bottom of the jar…

.. And just keep layering until you reach the top! I added a few chocolate chips to the top of mine because it just sounded good :)

The fun bus has arrived in town – Come see what Stoli Lemonade is all about!

This post brought to you by STOLI® Vodka. All opinions are 100% mine.

I’m gonna start this one off by professing my love for lemonade – especially in the summer months. Here in Texas, when the heat hits the triple digits almost every day, I find myself always looking for a refreshing drink to satisfy. I’ve tried the Stoli Lemonade recipe a couple of times during our World Cup get-togethers a few weeks back. It’s a  great recipe for sharing a good time with friends and family, and have that nice, icy drink in your hand.

How ’bout that bad boy!? Here’s the secret recipe: 2 parts Stolichnaya® Vodka, 4 parts lemonade poured over a big pitcher of ice. Throw a few lemon slices in there too, and mix it up. Serve and enjoy! There’s so many ways to adapt this recipe – it’s a blank canvas for pretty much anything… Get some ideas on pinterest or See more Stoli recipes and ideas on Instagram.

Good news if you live in Boston, Dallas, Denver, New York and New Jersey… You get the chance to see what the Stoli Limo-nade Truck is all about! Basically, it’s the fun bus that will roll into each city to promote the new Vaue Added Pack (VAP) that is being sold with Stoli® beverages – an added 750ml bottle of Stoli® Vodka! Now that’s a bonus! :) Look out for this truck, and go see if you can snap up some Stoli swag to go with it… Chicago is not going to see the Stoli Limo-nade truck, but they are expected to have some awesome bar nights!
