Five On Friday

Here are my favorite things from this month! I hope you enjoy them. :)

1. Umbra Bamboo Bathtub Caddy  - I saw this when I was shopping in Target the other day and almost bought it for myself. Almost. (Hint to Tim.) The best part is? There's a spot for your wine glass!
2. 8tracks - This is a music site/app that has mixes (yes, MIXES!) made by real people! Not like Pandora or Spotify where it's all computer-driven. I found an awesome 90's hip-hop mix that I worked out to this weekend and I literally didn't want to stop working out because the songs were so fantastic! I swear. Check out the website and if you like it, the app is available for iPhone and Android. Oh, and it's FREE.  (You can thank me later.)

3.Synergy Kombucha drinks - they are totally raw, tasty, organic, low-carb, low-calorie drinks that are SO healthy for you! I've been having them a few times per week in the afternoon when I feel a Starbucks craving coming on and then it really helps to make it through the the rest of the day. It really gives you good energy and I also notice it helps to control my appetite. Locally, they are about $3.69 per bottle (about the same you'd pay for a Starbucks drink). My recommendation? Try the Mystic Mango... it's definitely my favorite.

4. 30 Days of Pinspiration - I can't tell you a whole lot about this one because it's really a big secret to everyone. I just have this feeling it's gonna be pretty neat. :)

5.  Instagram Custom Earrings - Made by Instanything on Etsy. These were on Pinterest the other day and I immediately pinned them! They also have bracelets and necklaces. (The only dilemma is choosing a picture to wear.) Bonus: only $20 + free shipping. Yay for that.

Happy Friday everyone!


It's been a long week

I had originally planned to get a ton of work done this week -- write and schedule some blog posts, list new photos on Etsy and clean up the office a bit. Then Tuesday came and, bam, sore throat city. Not what you need when you're trying to be productive. Therefore, all this week I've been doing what I can to stay hydrated, rest as much as possible, and pump up my immune system with good stuff. Unfortunately that also meant not checking everything off the Livvielane to-do list. Please keep your fingers crossed for me that I can fight this silly cold and resume business as usual next week.

Have a great weekend all!


I'm Back!

Trick or treating with my niece

Having some drinks with friends

What a fun, glorious, restful vacation I had in North Carolina! It was so nice catching up with old friends and spending time with family. I even got to trick-or-treat with my little 2 yr old niece (on the right in the top picture) who, by the way, has the best dinosaur roar ever. ;)  So cute.

Honestly, I didn't do any of sightseeing or crazy activities (so to speak), just a lot of hanging out and relaxing. Before vacation, I was starting to get to a point where I was feeling burnt out with work. And, that's never a good way to be, y'all, so that time off couldn't have been timed more perfectly.  I hope you didn't mind my absence from the blog for a few weeks but it was a nice little thing for me to have a break right before the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. Eeek! Can you believe that Thanksgiving is right around the corner? I can't!

Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for sticking around the blog and checking back with me! I'll have posts back to the regular schedule this week.

Happy Monday, y'all! :)
