Transitioning to Fall| OOTD

Transitioning to Fall| OOTD

Is anybody else ready for Fall weather!? I know I am. This back and forth between 80 degrees and 60 degrees keeps getting me sick…Thank you New England.

Anyway, I was shopping for Fall and thinking about what staple pieces I can buy for the transitioning weather. I found this skort. YES, a skort! I don’t think I’ve worn one since I was maybe 10. I forgot how comfortable they were!

I can’t wait to bring out the Fall clothes and update my closet. Here’s what I’ve got so far:

Also, I’ve moved!! I moved in with my lovely boyfriend ( Hi Chris 😉 ), and he let me turn one of the bedrooms into my closet/office. Stay tuned for a tour of that once it’s fully finished!

Meet My Dachshund- Oscar

Meet My Dachshund- Oscar

DISCLAIMER: This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of The J.M. Smucker Company. The opinions and text are all mine.

Hello everyone,

I’m excited to bring you another lifestyle post today. This one is important to me because it’s involving the love of my life (sorry Chris).

Today, I wanted to bring Oscar onto the blog. I’ve definitely mentioned him before, because he is so special to me! To any other dog parents out there, you know the feeling of coming home everyday to a bunch of kisses, and waking up to kisses, and eating with kisses too. Let’s just say, there’s no better unconditional love than my dog.

I’ve had Oscar for 6 years now. 6 YEARS! Time flies. Oscar and I are definitely a package deal with anyone who comes into our life.

Oscar is a mini long-haired dachshund with a lot of love to give. He loves chasing tennis balls, licking feet (gross), and of course eating treats.

I used to have to go to the Walmart so often to replenish his treats. Pup-Peroni is definitely his favorite. Now that they make 38oz bags, it saves me so much time from having to make an extra trip! FYI, Pup-Peroni is available at Walmart in the pet aisle, or it can be found online: CLICK HERE.

Oscar loves all of the flavors, but you can never go wrong with the original beef flavor.

Some of the things I like about Pup-Peroni is:

  • Real meat like beef, steak, bacon, etc. is the #1 ingredient
  • Real meaty goodness
  • Mouth-watering beef
  • Mouth-watering steak
  • Made with real Angus steak

IMG_4800

I love to give Oscar a treat after a trip to the park. He’s awesome because he doesn’t even need a leash. He always stays right by my feet (unless he’s going to fetch the tennis ball, of course). Woof yeah!

IMG_4841

IMG_4862

Praising your dog is the best thing you can do, and what better way to do it than giving them a Pup-Peroni! Right when we get home from the park he runs over to the walk in pantry, because he knows!

Anyone who knows me, usually knows Oscar too. He’s my desktop background at work, he’s the wallpaper on my phone, and he’s my cuddle buddy at all points of the day. Unless he’s cuddling my boyfriend, because I swear he loves my boyfriend just as much as he loves me.

Oscar is so special to me because he has really gotten me through some rough times. I had a long two years where everything kept going wrong. I had a few loved ones pass away, including my Dad which, of course, hit me the hardest. I can’t tell you what Oscar did for my depression after that. To be honest, without Oscar, I don’t even know where I’d be today. I know it might sound silly to some of you, but to those of you who know the feeling, you know how important it is to have that.

17880057_2894436955054_3619695675019493930_o

Oscar also has a ton of cousins! My brother has a Rottweiler/Lab mix, my other brother has two German Shepherds, and my sister has a Lab and a Chihuahua/Terrier mix! Pup-Peroni is in all of our homes so we can train our dogs to be respectful and listen well. I wish you could see how cute they all are when they are together. Oscar loves to pretend he’s a big dog, even though we all know he’s the size of the other dogs’ legs.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this post. Who else loves dogs? And who else has a dachshund? They are definitely an awesome breed.

25 Lessons Learned in 25 Years

25 Lessons Learned in 25 Years

Hi all,

I asked on Twitter if I should write a ‘life lessons’ post, and a lot of you said yes! So here it is! These are things I have learned throughout the years and things that could benefit you from hearing as well. Let me know your top life lesson!

  1. Accept Your Mistakes – We all make them, we need to accept it. Taking responsibility  is the best way to make it better.
  2. Find Your Passion– Take time experimenting and trying new things. You’ll come across something you love. That’s going to be a good contribution to your happiness.
  3. Be Yourself– Finding out who you are is the most important. I recommend getting out of your comfort zone, maybe living in a new place. Or living on your own. It gives you a chance to figure out who you are or who you want to be.
  4. Move On– You are going to have friendships or relationships that don’t work out. It’s important that you find a way to move on and not let it hold you back. Accept that people change and we all move at different paces. Don’t let them slow you down.
  5. Work-Life Balance– This is something I’ve always struggled with. I’ve always been a workaholic. I have a really hard time balancing work, my blog, and my social life. It’s important to find a balance.
  6. Learn Your Priorities– Bouncing off of the last one, learn your priorities. This will help you find a balance and figure out what’s most important to you. Make time for that.
  7. Be Open To Change– Your teens and 20’s are usually when a lot of change happens for you. School, College, Work, Friends, etc. Be open to change and just know everything will work out the way it’s supposed to.
  8. Curiosity Killed The Cat– Don’t focus so much on what’s going on with other people. Just be you and focus on yourself, and everything else will fall into place. If something happens, you can react to it. But you don’t need to dig for something.
  9. Be There For One Another– You never know what someone is going through, and it’s important to be there for others. Almost like the show 13 Reasons Why, you just never know what can change someone’s life.
  10. Support Each Other– This almost bounces off of the last one. It’s so important to support each other. I have so many friends that have not shared my posts, and I also probably have friends who never even read my blog. It’s important to find people in your life who will support you, and make sure you support them to.
  11. Relationships Are a Two Way Street– This goes for relationships, friendships, or even acquaintances. You should not be putting in all of the effort. If that’s the case, it’s time to go back to Step 4 and move on! You don’t have to completely move on and end it, but just back away and give someone who gives you the effort more of your time. They deserve it!
  12. Don’t Make a Permanent Decision on Temporary Feelings– If you’re really upset, do not make a decision right away. Take some time until you calm down and figure it out, and come back to it.
  13. No Regrets– You can spend so much time regretting things or you can realize that you can’t change the past, but you can work on the future. Spend time learning from your mistakes.
  14. Learn How To Budget– Wow I wish I knew this. I mean I always ‘knew’ how…but that doesn’t mean I did it. I’m not saying don’t spend money on experiences and everything. But learn how to put something away in a savings so if something happens down the road, you have something to fall back on.
  15. Travel– So this is something you should spend money on! Get out there while you can. I can’t describe the feeling I get after going to a new place. So motivational.
  16. Find People Who Share Your Interests– It’s a great thing when you find people who love the same hobby as you do. For me, it’s fashion. Stick around others who are motivated and it will help keep you going. If you’re spending time around people who aren’t motivated as the same rate as you are, it could hold you back. Again, don’t cut them out, just split your time the right way.
  17. Spend Time On Yourself– For a long time I was so focused on constantly being busy, having fun with people and working. I didn’t realize how important it was to spend time alone. It helped me become independent and take care of myself.
  18. Do What You Want– Don’t let anyone tell you that you shouldn’t go after your dream or you shouldn’t do something just because they wouldn’t. We’re all different and that’s what creates successes. Go for it!
  19. Give People Chances, But Not Too Many– People do deserve second chances. I’m a firm believer in that. However, how many chances should you give? To me, once someone repeats a mistake, it becomes a choice. Up to your discretion of course.
  20. Relationships Are About Making Sacrifices– You’re going to have to learn how to make sacrifices for others. Also, there will be times where people make sacrifices for you.
  21. Not Everyone Needs Your Advice– This is a big one for me. I love to be Dr. Phil. Probably because I spend a lot of nights on Pinterest under the ‘Quotes’ section, haha. Sometimes we just need to listen without giving out input. This will be my resolution starting now. 😉
  22. Accept Your Flaws– Yes, I thought of this after just writing my own. But it is important to know what your flaws are. That’s the first step to working on them. Everyone has them throughout their life. Life is just us constantly growing as a person.
  23. You’re Going to Learn a Lot More– This is not it. There’s a lot more to learn out there. Listen to people, ask questions, and take notes. It’s good to hear things from other people to get their perspective. It helps to open up the mind.
  24. Be Humble and Kind– This is probably my favorite one. Some people are just so miserable and rude. Again, I get it that people can be going through stuff and cope in their own ways. But that’s not okay to treat people poorly who do not deserve it. (This is the customer service side of me typing). Also, I love that song by Tim McGraw.
  25. Keep Pushing, Don’t Give Up!– Keep going. You can do anything you set your mind to as long as you have the passion for it. Ask for help when you need it, learn from other’s who are doing the same thing, and don’t be afraid of failure.

 

Well, these are some of the lessons that I wish I could have taught myself over the years. What are some of your favorite lessons that you wish you told your younger self? I’m curious to hear more! Let me know in the comments or on any of my social media –> @jennaleeannllc

 

Talk to you all soon!

Suede & Sneakers

Suede & Sneakers

Hello comfortable and trendy. This is another one of the top trends this season. It’s all about dressing your outfit to the athletic aesthetic. I could’ve easily dressed this dress up with some heels and a great clutch, but I decided to go a different route.

I definitely suggest finding a great basic shift dress to pair with sneakers, because it’s the easiest way to look like you tried, when in reality, you threw it on and ran out the door (my life).

How do you feel about this trend? Also…LOVING this suede dress. What a perfect piece to bring into Fall.

Stemuderm Review

Have you noticed the latest signs that indicate that your body is changing with each day, now more visible than ever? We are talking about wrinkles – the most visible signs that remind us that our body is going through a lot of changes! But do you know what causes their appearance? Or most importantly how to get rid of them permanently? We do. We know one powerful anti-wrinkle cream that will answer your prayers and help you to refresh your look and look more healthy and happy than ever! Have you heard about this wonder of an anti-wrinkle cream known as Stemuderm? If this is the first time to acknowledge the fact that something as powerful as this exists, do not worry! Read the following article carefully and find out everything that you need to know about choosing the right anti-wrinkle cream and why you should buy your own Stemuderm right now!

Why Do You Need To Use An Anti-Wrinkle Cream?

As you get older, your skin becomes thinner, dryer, and less elastic and its ability to defend from all kinds of damages is decreased. And the result? The result comes in the form of wrinkles, dark spots, and lines on the skin. What anti-wrinkle creams will do for you is now only decrease the visible wrinkles, but improve your skin by hydrating it and preventing any additional damages, including lines, to appear.

How To Choose the Best Anti-Wrinkle Cream?

There are a few things that you need to watch out for whenever you buy a skin care product. But, what we want to talk about are the things that were particularly important when searching for the right anti-wrinkle cream! Can you guess any of them?

  • Forget about the price – Just because that anti-wrinkle cream that you have your eye on for weeks has a price including more than two digits that does not mean that is the most efficient anti-wrinkle cream that you must try! It is not always about the price and you need to remember that!
  • Prepareyourself by reading the reviews – Before you go ahead and buy any skin care product in general, it is essential to find out as much as you can about the product that you have in mind! Other people’s opinions do matter, especially if they come from professionals!
  • Look for the active ingredients – What you should look for in your anti-wrinkle cream are antioxidants, Vitamin C, Retinol, peptides, tea extracts and etc.

Stemuderm is one of the winning products brought by Solvaderm. Solvaderm offers you the winning solution that will fight by your side in order to decrease your visible wrinkles and award you with a younger, healthier and glowing skin! And what is the secret? The secret is in the ingredients that are combined in this sturdy product. At least four of the ingredients that Stemuderm contains are scientifically proven to decrease the visible wrinkles. We are talking about ArgirelineHyaluronic acid, Matrixyl 3000 and Syn-Ake! This product also contains very powerful antioxidants which we mentioned earlier among the most important active ingredients that you should look for in an anti-wrinkle cream! So what are the benefits from using Stemuderm exactly? Stemuderm not only does promise to erase even the deepest wrinkles, but it also promises to remove any fine lines that might or might not have been bothering you for the past few months! It will also provide a refreshed look and give you glowing, smooth, and healthy-looking skin with no trace of dryness and roughness! It will even erase any damages done by the sun exposure! The one thing that might bother you is not knowing when can you expect the first results! However, we think that the promised results are more than some given timeframe! So to sum it up – if you want to renew your look and feel and look younger and healthier, then Stemuderm is the product for you!

Monday Meals | Thai Sweet Chili Chicken

Monday Meals | Thai Sweet Chili Chicken

Today is the start of my new series on the blog, Monday Meals! I decided to try a Thai Sweet Chili Chicken this week. It ended up coming out AMAZING! I can’t wait to make it more.

Here’s the ingredients you will need to make this recipe:

Ingredients

2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
Olive Oil
6 tablespoons bottled Thai Sweet Chili Sauce
Pinch of salt
Sesame Seeds                                                                                                                                         2 cloves garlic, minced
Cilantro Leaves, Chopped

First you’ll want to fill a frying pan about 2 inches with vegetable oil, and turn it on medium heat. While that’s heating up you can make the batter and cut up the chicken into small cubes.

Batter

1 egg white
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup cold water
1 tablespoon olive oil
Pinch of salt

food1food2

Then you’ll want to dip the chicken into a plain bowl of flour, and then into the batter. The flour will help the batter stick more.

After you dip each piece into the batter, and make sure it’s as much covered as you can get it… put each piece into the frying pan and cook until golden brown. I suggest taking out a larger piece and cutting into it to make sure it’s cooked all the way through.

Once they’re cooked, take them off and put them onto a plate with a paper towel to absorb the grease. Wash off the pan and then add your garlic in. Once the garlic starts to turn brown, you’ll want to add your chicken in. Then add in 6 tablespoons of your sauce and toss it.

After it’s done, you’re ready to put it on the plate and garnish it with some cilantro and sesame seeds! I put mine over brown rice and it was so good and filling!

food4food5food6

This is a great meal for two people. And very easy and quick to cook! The only thing that takes long to cook is the rice so I suggest starting that earlier in a rice cooker.

Let me know if you decide to try it, and if so let me know how you like it!

Make sure you subscribe to my blog, and follow my social media to stay updated! I post every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Talk to you soon, xox
