I'm a Nutrisystem #NSNation Blogger! 

Disclosure: I am being provided with Nutrisystem products in exchange for honest opinions. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy) 

I have some very exciting news to let you know about! It's been hard keeping this secret, but the word is now out.....I'm a Nutrisystem #NSNation blogger! I am so excited to start my journey on Monday 9/25 and I will be sharing with you all my progress over these next few months. I have a goal in mind of how much weight that I want to lose, but I am not sharing that just yet! Stay tuned! 

As many of you know, I have had shoulder and neck issues since 2012 due to a car accident. Three surgeries in the past 4 years have really had a toll on my body and I have gained some weight due to those circumstances. I am feeling much better these days physically speaking, and am ready to get rid of this weight! I have already been walking 3 miles 5 days a week, so Nutrisystem is really going to compliment my weight loss journey even more! 

As a Nutrisystem blogger, I will be provided 3 months of meals/resources and I will be sharing my weight-loss journey with you my readers! I am so honored to have this amazing opportunity and to partner with such a remarkable company. I know that this program works and have seen the results before. I love what the Nutrisystem commercial says, "You eat the food and you lose the weight"  Yes, it really is that simple! 

If you don't already follow me on social media, make sure that you do so now. I will be posting lots of pictures, Instagram Stories and more! 

Follow me on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to follow my #NSNation journey! 

A huge thank you to Nutrisystem for this amazing opportunity and for believing in me that I can do this! I am very excited for this journey!

 (All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy) 

 

Welcome to My Favorite Things Friday! This is going to be a fun post each week where I will be sharing some of my favorite things! These things may be anything from beauty, fashion, food and anything in between! I would love to hear from you as well. What are your favorite things? I may feature you and your favorite things for an upcoming post! 

Today it is all about my favorite drugstore mascara. I am sure that you are like me and have tried so many different brands of mascara. While I do love Younique mascara, I don't always have room for it in my budget. I found a drugstore mascara that I cannot speak highly enough about and it is only around $5! COVERGIRL Super Sizer by LashBlast Mascara gives me so much fullness and length! The wand makes application a breeze and allows for some outrageous volume! Look at how long my lashes look! In addition, I love how easily this product washes off. I use a makeup remover and voila it comes off easily. I highly recommend this mascara think that you will too! I want to hear from you! What is your favorite drugstore brand mascara?

Zaycon Fresh: Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts Only $1.59 lb! 

(All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)


For those of us who were affected by Hurricane Irma and lost everything in our freezer and refrigerator, this is a great stock up deal! Zaycon Fresh is back taking order for their Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts! And, today only, you can score them for just $1.59 lb. with promo code QUICK148 at checkout. 

I don't know about you all, but I feel that it is getting harder and harder to find great sales on good quality meats. It seems that you used to find great sales here and there, but those sales are very rare any more. Thankfully Zaycon Fresh is here to help us as families save on Chicken, Beef, Pork and even fresh fruits when available!

If you see a product that you would like to try, you need to order it now. Items sell out very quickly so place your now if interested. There is limited availability with each item. 

How does the Zaycon Fresh process work?

You will first GO HERE and create an account. 

Decide which product(s) that you would like to purchase and select a pickup location. 

Pay for your products. 

Zaycon Fresh will notify as you get closer to the date to remind you that is is time to pick up your product(s). I love that Zaycon will even text you on the day that you are to pick up your products - they make the process very easy! 

Head to your pickup location and get your amazing product(s).

Take your yummy foods home and enjoy! You will be back for more I promise! 

My favorite item from Zaycon Fresh is definitely their Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts. These have no added hormones and are 100% natural chicken and are minimally processed, with no additives or artificial ingredients. I keep this chicken breast in our freeze at all times as it is the BEST chicken that we have ever tasted not to mention that they are huge! 

A few months back I picked up my 40 pound box and it only took me around 1 hour to divide the 40 pounds up into bags and place in my freezer. There is very minimal fat that you will have to cut away so that makes that process fairly simple. For our family of 4 I was able to get about 20 freezer bags of chicken. So, that is roughly 20 meals. As someone who is always looking for ways to save my family money, that is an awesome deal! Not to mention I know that the quality of the chicken I am feeding my family is SUPERB! 

Are you ready to try Zaycon Fresh for yourself? GO HERE to set up an account and try it out! You will not be disappointed!
