Sausage and Cheese Breakfast Casserole- make it the night before, almost like a savory bread pudding

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen my #EmGetsStrong posts.  Since March of this year I’ve lost over 15lbs and 12 inches.  I’ve been working out with a trainer and lifting weights every week, but one of the biggest keys to my success has been focusing on my nutrition.  I started with baby steps of cutting sweets and mindless snacking.  I’ve learned to listen to my body and feed my muscles.  I’ve also strived to eat a healthy breakfast every day and make “better for you” swaps when I get the chance.

New Year’s Eve Fashion + Giveaway

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/P&G.  As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I can’t believe how quickly this year has come and gone!  I’m ready to close out 2014 and hit the ground running on 2015.  COVERGIRL and Rent the Runway want to help you do just that!

Rent The Runway
carries 55,000 designer dresses (from over 250 top brands like Kate Spade New York, Vera Wang, and many others), including cocktail and party dresses, gowns, and casual wear, all available for rent.  They offer door-to-door delivery, a free second-size, and access to personal stylists.  They also carry a large assortment of accessories and jewelry that can also be rented simultaneously to complete your look.

While browsing their site, I immediately fell in love with this New Derek Dress by Slate and Willow.  It retails for $595 but is available for rent for just $65!  I love that other people who have rented the dress are able to upload photos so you get a better idea of how the dress will look on different body types.  The whole process seems very user friendly!



Of course the best accessory on NYE is kissable lips, and COVERGIRL has you covered with their new Colorlicious Lipstick.  Available in 36 flattering shades, deliciously rich color is infused with moisturizing shea butter for color that’s irresistibly craveable. This lipstick comes in four color families: smooth nudes, rich reds, yummy plums, luscious pinks. Get new COVERGIRL Colorlicious Lipsticks at everyday low prices from Walmart.  I picked a rich red color and couldn’t believe how silky smooth it was.  The coverage was great, yet it felt like I wasn’t wearing anything at all.  As someone who doesn’t wear lipstick that often, I am now obsessed with this!  I can’t wait to try out their nudes next.

Giftable Single Serving Hot Cocoa

Single Serving Hot Cocoa- perfect to gift in little containers filled with marshmallows, peppermint, etc

 I found these little plastic ornaments at Michael’s (orig. $1.99, sale $.99) a few days ago and thought they would be PERFECT to fill with something.  I love that they are square, and are able to sit up nicely, as opposed to the round ones you usually find.  The lids popped out no problem and they were super easy to assemble.
