Gold & Black Hues

IMG_0454

I picked up this dress for $7 (Gasp) at Forever 21 (Thanks clearance section).  It has the prettiest gold threading that gives it a tint and I paired it with my lace up heels.  You can find some amazing lace up’s right now. One being here. I paired it with gold accessories, simple waves and a blush lip. My hair in the summer is usually bleached out by the sun and my (gentle) use of Sun In on my roots.  I deep conditioner 2 times a week in the shower with a hair mask to keep my hair soft, hydrated and not burnt out.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Blondie Bars Featuring Better Body Foods

IMG_8224

Better Body Foods makes incredible products. They are definitely a favorite of mine and a staple in our house. I have been using their Superfoods for about 6 months now in my protein shakes and smoothie bowls everyday. All of their stuff is organic and priced at a great cost. I wanted to make some healthy protein energy bars to eat during my natural labor and test out a new recipe I concocted for our household since we eat primarily paleo, low carb, low sugar based.  These bars turned out insanely good and the best part is, they hit all the marks.   Ready for it? They are low carb, low sugar, paleo, gluten free, organic, PACKED with protein, lower in fat (thanks to their-get this- CHOCOLATE peanut butter powder!) and so so so stinkin’ GOOD.

Below under the recipe is a fun little video I shot making these guilt free treats and am so excited that they turned out so delish.  The guilty part is drizzling the organic chocolate sauce on top if you are treating yourself. 😉

Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Blondie Bars
 
FEATURING: Better Body Foods. This low carb, low sugar organic and seriously delish bar is great for those on paleo/gluten free diet, for post work out snack or treat when training and for a healthy labor snack! I will be eating these to keep my energy up during my natural labor! + They have a ton of protein in them!
Ingredients
  • Recipe:
  • Incredible paleo and gluten free coconut flour bars with layers of dark chocolate and coconut flakes, if desired! You'll be amazed by how delicious and easy these bars are.
  • INGREDIENTS
  • ¼ cup Better Body Foods melted coconut oil
  • ⅓ cup Better Body Foods agave nectar
  • 2 teaspoons Better Body Foods vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 2 scoops Better Body Foods unflavored plant protein
  • 3 tablespoons Betty Body Foods chocolate peanut butter powder
  • ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ cup Better Body Foods coconut flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 oz your favorite dairy free dark chocolate bar, coarsely chopped
  • ½ cup coconut flakes, optional
Instructions
  1. INSTRUCTIONS
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 8x8 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together coconut oil, honey, vanilla, eggs, and almond milk. In a separate medium bowl whisk together coconut flour, baking soda, and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just combined and batter is smooth. Fold in chopped chocolate, reserved a few tablespoons for sprinkling on top if desired.
  4. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until edges are golden brown and knife comes out with a few crumbs attached. The batter may look like it's not all the way cooked but it will be. DO NOT OVERBAKE or it will result in dried out bars and no one likes that! I always bake mine for 20 minutes and don't have any problems. Cool bars on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes so that they settle a bit, then cut into 16 squares. Enjoy!

My Favorite Maternity/Nursing Bras Featuring Cake Maternity

IMG_8033

If any of you are like me during pregnancy, my ta ta’s grew… a size or two….just like the grinch’s heart.  I already have a bigger bust, so when growing I needed MAJOR support so they don’t float down by my ankles.

I found the.best.bras.

Cake Maternity has some serious bras.  Their work out bra holds me in for working out and maintaining fitness lifestyle as I grow and into post partum size. I am able to move, invert etc. in this beauty and it’s comfortable and extremely supportive.

This every day t shirt bra is so comfortable and isn’t bulky but still has major hold support.  The bras are so well made. They have about 6 clasps in the back so as you grow through breastfeeding and shrink again you can adjust.

Their lotus lounge/yoga/sleep bra is beautiful, so soft and again really comfortable. All the bras are major comfy- let’s just get that squared away. I live in them. The super cool thing about this one is, because it is a pumping bra, you get pretty much just sneak your nipple out and breastfeed while the bra is completely on.  No unclasping or anything. You could just put the baby on your chest and it looks like you are holding them there, no skin, no nothin’ showing. Super convenient, and it’s a really cool feature.

I can’t wait to show more as I journey into my breastfeeding life and incorporate them as I grow, shrink, change and adapt!

I am wearing the work out bra below!

The Cutest Wet/Dry Diaper Bags I Ever Did See!

IMG_8073

The world of diapering and all its sub categories when becoming a mommy can be a whole (sometimes overwhelming) thing depending on your lifestyle and type of person you are and what groove you want to get into.  Diapering ranges from bulk big brand, economically priced disposable to eco friendly, health and chemical conscious to cloth diapering, hybrid cloth, half disposable (at night or when out)/half cloth (during day, at home) and everywhere in between.  But one thing is for certain…you will have messy diapers, blow outs, smelly baby clothes and need a place to stash them when you are out so they won’t make your car/bag/stroller smell like a porta potty.

These adorable wet/dry diaper bags and baby accessory bags by Logan + Lenora can be used for cloth diapers, wet baby clothes, bathing suits, creams, wipes, bottles, literally anything that you don’t want leaking and smelling out of the bag and will hold wet in.  They are AMAZING.  As a mama who will be clothing and using chemical conscious disposable diapers AND who will be on the go traveling and doing life, I can’t imagine how I’d stash the smelly goods any other way.  These beautiful, hand made from Colorado bags are made with toxin-free medical grade waterproof lining to ensure no leaks or smells can escape and are seriously freakin’ adorable. Check out there adorable line of wet/dry bags for every baby essential/accessory and mommy storage use.

Head on over to Logan + Lenora to check out their full line.

Father’s Day & The Perfect Gift For Him (…and I)

IMG_8022

It’s our first Father’s Day in our house!  WILD!  I wanted to get my husband the perfect gift and he’s been wanting a watch forever.  He’s pretty picky and we went shopping and looked online and showed me the styles he liked.  He picked out this Daniel Wellington watch and I knew it was perfect for him.  I of course needed one too as these are timeless watches and the style is so minimal and classy.  It’s so perfect for everyday or for business (He wears a suit everyday).  He chose the Classic York Rose Gold 40mm  the band is awesome and goes with everything and it fits him perfect.  I love a good size watch face on a man’s wrist.  I had to get one myself and chose the Classy St. Mawes Rose Gold 34mm It is beautiful and has a Swarovski crystal index. They are made beautifully and he is stoked on it.  1 Father’s Day gift down…years to go! ;)-

Right now for Father’s Day you can get a 15% off discount when you use the code: ITSJESSICAMILLER

Order now so you can get it on time for your special guy! <3
