Sparkles and Sunshine: Life Lately

Life Lately

Happy Tuesday!

I wanted to take some time to give you guys a few updates on my personal life including the boys (Diesel, Oscar, & Felix), goals, etc.!


I am back in a routine again! If anyone else struggles with getting into a routine or were in one and got in a rut, my go to is to put my alarm clock (a.k.a. my phone) across the room so that I get up. I plug my phone in my bathroom, place my workout clothes right next to it so that I have no excuse to not get up. Something else that I've been trying to do is to get my entire workout done in the morning. For a while I was trying to split up weight lifting and cardio. Every time I would get home from work I would be tired, want to take Diesel to the dog park, make dinner and then relax. All of that takes up so much time, I didn't feel motivated to do any cardio. Now, I'm doing the five toning moves from Tone It Up and then doing 45 minutes to an hour of cardio (45 on weekdays and an hour on the weekends). The only time I'm doing cardio in the evenings is if I'm going to one of the classes at my apartment like spin or zumba, or maybe trying a new class somewhere else! I already feel like the end of my day is back.

Diesel, Oscar, & Felix:

All the boys are good! Diesel is loving his new dog bed that we found at Sam's. It was only $35! He cozies up on it everyday! Oscar and Felix still aren't playing too much on their cat tree. I'm going to try putting some loose catnip on it to see if that will entice them a bit! Did anyone else have the same problem or is it just me? I'd love to hear any advice!


I want to listen to podcasts more! Ever since I found that one about a week ago, I've been inspired to find more. I would love any recommendations!

I would also like to get back into reading. I love really girly books and anything that's motivational/enlightening/girl boss focused. I would love recommendations here as well!


I want to start creating yearly bucket lists for travel! I'll think of more places this week and as time goes on I'm sure, but for now the two places I would like to go to this year are: Miami and a cruise to anywhere honestly. My dream cruise is an Alaskan cruise but I would love to go to a fun island area too!


Next month I am excited to be traveling to Atlanta for a work conference! I have always wanted to go to a conference before and I can't wait to learn new things that I can take back to work and my blog. If I haven't mentioned this before, I work in marketing. My career started in natural social media and now it's in paid social media advertising. I love being able to apply what I do for a living to my blog!

So I'm not sure when this is going to happen this year, but I've already looked it up and priced it. I have always wanted to be a Zumba instructor. I love to dance! I have a sit to stand desk at work and when I stand, I'm jamming out and actually dancing. My coworkers find it hilarious and think it's great. I really hope I can afford and attend a training in the next few months so that I can begin to get certified!

What I'm loving right now:

This topic is definitely broad, but I wanted it to be very open-ended so that I can encompass so many different things.

Chandler and I discovered this Australian show called Zumbo's Just Desserts. Guys. IT IS SO COOL! I'm not a dessert person by any means, but I love cooking shows. I get so inspired. I watch and am like yes, this is so great, I'm going to go make something amazing....and then it doesn't happen. 😂 If you're interested in watching it, it's on Netflix!

That's all for now. I hope you all have a great Tuesday!
