So.. I made the move!

I took a GIANT leap of faith last night & made the move to my own self-hosted domain. Eek!
Please check it out as I’ve spent all night working on it. There’s still little things to tweak here and there but for the most part, I’m finally happy with it.
I’m just way too excited to share it with you all!

I have exported this blog (mosaicsea.wordpress.com) to my new site. I can either leave everything here as is or delete this… I’m still not sure what I’m going to be doing as of right now.

Anyways – to continue getting posts & updates from me you can follow me on Bloglovin. So be sure to check that out!

 

My new site & my new baby: MOSAICSEA.COM !

Let me know what you think!!

Perfect Mid-Morning Snack

As I’ve said before, I’m quite the picky eater. Getting my greens is almost a chore for me, but one way I have found that I will actually eat, is to put my greens into a smoothie!

I know the color doesn’t look so great, but trust me- it is yummy! And If I like, basically everyone will like it!

Last summer is when I picked this trick up & I’ve been trying to make them as often as possible, but lately, I’ve been slacking.

However, this morning when I was going over the H.E.L.P. Nutrition Guide by Kayla Itsines, I noticed it called for a smoothie as a morning snack!
I was quite excited to be motivated to make more smoothies, as sadly it is my main source of veggies.
I usually make my smoothies with kale, spinach, frozen berries, coconut milk, Greek yogurt, flax seed, and sometimes half an orange.

I decided this morning to go with Kayla’s recipe, which is quite similar to mine. My smoothie today has 1 cup kale, 1 cup spinach, yogurt, 1 cup of frozen berries, and one banana.

I actually really enjoy the banana taste in this as it sort of helps to mask the taste of the spinach and kale.

I take my time finishing this & it actually leaves me decently full afterwards.

You’ll have to give it a try! Also, let me know if you have any variations of a smoothie similar to this one- I’d love to hear it!

I painted again

I got to put my new paint & brushes to good use this evening. I made this for my sissy.
Such a relaxing Friday with my windows open, room cleaned, music on, painting.

This elephant I made for my brother because he is obsessed with elephants. He actually said he liked it & displayed it in his room & said thank you. I think this means he’s coming out of his leave-me-alone-i-can’t-stand-you stupid teenage boy phase. Success!

This one I painted for my mother. At first I hated the flowers & thought I had just ruined a completely good background. But they’re starting to grow on me now (ha ha, get it. grow. flowers – sorry).

This plus a nice dinner date sums up my night.
