Ellen’s Emotional Reminder to Celebrate Life Every Day

In the wake of the news of Kobe Bryant’s passing along with his 13yr old daughter, Gigi and 7 other passengers, the world seems like it’s almost at a standstill. No matter how many times you read a Tweet, scroll past and Instagram post or watch the news; these untimely deaths seem surreal.

Most of us are at a loss for words full of many tears. Kobe Bryant was and still is an inspiration to us all; whether you grew up with him like I did, you were a kid emulating his moves or just a fan of his hardwork and effort.

We don’t when or where we’ll be when it’s our time to pass on. Until then love each, hug each other, and tell someone you love them!

Krusteaz Muffins: Easy like an easy bake oven

During the holidays things can get hectic! After cooking large meals, running from store to store, running from house to house all while keeping you’re sanity, Lol! The last thing you want to do is wake up and cook a big breakfast.
➖➖➖
I received 2 complimentary boxes of @krusteaz muffin mix from @Influenster.eats @Influenster in exchange for my honest review.
Here’s a photo of the finished product.

I vlogged the entire process:

Cooking with Cream Baking with krusteaz

➖➖➖

My first impression of the product was how easy the recipes were to follow, how simple the ingredients were, and I was impressed with the canned blueberries that were included.

We baked blueberry muffins and banana nut muffins.

The final product turned out really tasty and they looked like store bought muffins as you can see above.

I would certainly recommend Krusteaz products to my friends and family.

NATIONAL VISION BOARD DAY

#NationalVisionBoardDay is observed annually on the second Saturday in #January.

Vision board parties began in 2010 between a group of friends as a way for people to get together in a fun environment to set goals, cast vision and dream out loud in a tangible way by creating vision boards they then mount on their walls. Seeing their hopes and dreams helps set in motion for these visions to become a reality. Many #actors, #musicians, #fashion and #entertainment-based people have been participating in this since it’s inception. #VisionBoards help people remember their goals and visions on a daily basis.
