My Go To Snack With Verb Energy

I have had an incredibly busy life recently with lots of rehearsals. When I am busy it’s hard to find time to make something to eat and my energy is low from all the running around. I am so thankful I recently found Verby Energy Bars. They are healthy, only 90 calories, and have as much caffeine as an espresso, but are made with a natural green tea. So I love the energy that they give me, especially during my show weekend.

How I balance a healthy lifestyle with a busy schedule

I have definitely had a lot more on my plate this spring with teaching voice lessons, fashion blogging, and rehearsing for a musical. It has involved a lot of driving and on the go moments. At first, I was really challenged to figure out how to balance my healthy lifestyle with everything I have going on. I figured out how to balance it most of the time and wanted to share with you all my tips and also best snack foods for along the way.

I think the hardest thing to figure out with a busy schedule is what type of snacks to get for in between meals and that is easy to grab on the go that is gluten and dairy free. I started with buying corn chips and these organic oat bars from the store, but found that I was still hungry and spending a lot of money on them. I came across a company on instagram called Safe + Fair. They have chips and granola that are both gluten and dairy free, plus they are made with healthy ingredients and at an affordable price. So I decided to try some of the birthday cake granola and chocolate brownies to start with. I loved the granola so much and it was so easy to grab as a snack between rehearsals and teaching. So I got to try all of their chips, granola, and brownies a couple weeks ago and I love them. They are my favorite on the go snacks, filled with good ingredients and taste so good too. The blondie’s are my husbands favorites and I love the chocolate granola. I put it in my yogurt and eat it by itself. You can use my code: Autumn20 at checkout to get 20% + Free Shipping.

The other thing I do when I have a busy week is plan our meals for the week ahead of time. This helps a lot so we don’t have to question what we are going to eat each night. We do a lot of crockpot meals since I have time in the morning to put everything in and cook it all day so it’s ready between my lessons and rehearsals. We also make sure to eat a big breakfast in the morning if it’s going to be a long day. When I need to grab something quick I always grab Chick Fil A grilled nuggets which is much healthier than other fast food places.

 

I also drink a lot of water during a busy week. It’s so important to stay hydrated during a stressful and busy time. I take my water bottle everywhere with me.

 

I also try to do 4 workouts per week and do the workout in the morning to make sure it gets done. Typically if I don’t workout in the morning, it won’t get done. Working out helps with stress and also keeps you active during a crazy time.

 

These are all my tips for how I balance a healthy lifestyle with my busy schedule. Hope this helps and encourages you all! Have a great week and Memorial Day Weekend!

 

XOXO,

Autumn

Amazon Spring Haul Favorites

Amazon has been killing it with their spring fashion recently. I am all about finding cute and affordable clothes and I know many of you all are too. So I wanted to round up everything I have gotten the past couple months from Amazon and include some of my other favorite items I have my eyes on.

 

Dresses and Rompers:

 

I am all about dresses and rompers when it comes to the summer. Amazon has so many cute dresses and rompers. First is this adorable floral wrap dress. It fits true to size and I am wearing an Small. It is a thinner material so I recommend wearing a slip underneath the dress. You can dress it up with a pair of heels for date night or a wedding or you can dress it down with sandals or wedges for a casual night out. I also love that you could wear it as a cover up over a swimsuit for a beach trip. It comes in a bunch of colors besides this one as well and also comes in a sleeveless version. I linked both below for you all.

Amazon Finds

 

Second, is this super cute red floral strapless dress. It is such a comfortable fit and fits true to size. You can also dress it up with some heels or wedges or dress it down with some flat sandals or flatforms with a denim jacket. This dress would also be perfect for the 4th of July or Memorial Day Weekend.

 

 

This romper is one of my new favorites! It feels like you are wearing pajamas but you aren’t. It fits true to size and I am wearing a size Small. It comes in so many different colors too, but I went with the black since it is a thinner material. You can dress it up with heels or wedges or dress it down too with some cute gold sandals or a denim jacket.

 

Athletic Wear:

I haven’t found too much from Amazon for atheisure, but I did find these leggings and they are amazing. I haven’t tried Lulu lemons before, but everyone is saying they feel as soft. They even have pockets on the sides for you to be able to put your phone while working out. They come in a bunch of different colors and I am wearing the X-Small in them. These are definitely my favorite leggings I have owned yet.

 

Accessories:

Amazon definitely has some great finds when it comes to accessories. I got my straw round purse from Amazon for under $40 and my sunglasses for under $10. They also have a lot of adorable earrings and hair accessories. I have several linked on my Amazon page.

 

I have also linked all of my favorites on my Amazon page for beauty, swimsuits, and shoes, and health/food.

 

I hope this was helpful for you all and I am planning on doing some more hauls in the next month with Amazon. Hope you all have a great week!

 

XOXO,

Autumn
