This insulated bru mate that I ordered for my poolside beverages to keep them nice and cool. Plus the one I ordered has GLITTER on it. Oh yes.

Sparkling peach cider may be just what I need this weekend. HMMM.

Plus a gangsta glam selfie since this is my face while I work today. Make it a good one!

The 6 habits of kind, generous people. Love this and will be putting this on my wall as a daily reminder. Especially during these crazy times. Always be kind.

Your brain on running. I swear if we could just go ahead and bottle up endorphins and sell them we would make a killing.

Right now, focus on yourself. 100%.
