Unfortunately, I've caught the flu. I should have went for a flu shot at the beginning of winter, as per my mom's insistence, but I'm stubborn. Alas, here I am, sick in bed for the next couple days. Instead of sitting around doing nothing, which is basically what I've been doing, I thought I'd share some of my sick-time essentials with you.

set of Sonia Kashuk brushes. I'm a huge fan of Sonia Kashuk products, available at Target, and whenever their brush sets go on sale (about 1-2x a year), I pick up a set. These are the gold handled brushes and they have a wonderful, heavy weight to them. The Sonia Kashuk are probably my all-time favorite brushes, just because of the amazing quality and low price point. This set was regular $30 and was marked down to $15, along with a few other sets.

Bulu Box is another one of those monthly subscription services, but this time it's for health. There are two different types of Bulu Boxes, the standard box and the box for weight loss (which is the one I chose). It's a $10-per-month service that's designed to help you maintain or begin a healthy lifestyle, through healthy samples and snacks. This was my first Bulu Box, so my opinion on the service is based solely on this box.

I don't know about y'all, but I'm obsessed with pizza. Pizza has probably been my favorite food since I was a young child and I can never get enough of it. The major issue with pizza is that the calorie count is through the roof. Because I've been adopting a healthier lifestyle recently, in an effort to become more fit (and let's be honest, lose some weight), I've been making these low-cal cheese pizza bagels at least once a week. The best parts? They're inexpensive, easy to make, taste great, and are less than 200 calories!

Bath & Body Works is having a sale on 3-wick candles (2 for $22) and it was an amazing value, because it's essentially buy one, get one free. Bath & Body Works sells some of my all-time favorite candles so I had to pick up a couple. The sale is only happening for a limited time, so pick up some candles while you can!

For me, spring is all about the pastels. Flowers are beginning to bloom and Easter is on it's way, providing the perfect platform to show off my favorite shades of nail polish. I wear pastel polishes all year round, because I'm obsessed with how lighter colors look on my skin tone, and I love when spring comes around so I can shamelessly outfit my nails in the prettiest pastels on the market.

I started going to the gym early this year and I've found some items that I have deemed my own personal gym bag "essentials." I try to keep the extra, non-gym related items to a minimum, as I don't feel like carrying around a heavy bag with me every time I go to the gym (I typically walk, as it's only about 15 minutes from my house). I'm slightly obsessed with seeing what people keep in their makeup bags and purses, so I thought a little peek into my gym bag would be fun!

I wanted to share this super easy DIY memory jar that I've been keeping up with since the start of the New Year. I've seen several people show their versions of memory jars and I found that this method was the easiest and still looked adorable, with minimal effort.

Glam Bag, it's a beauty subscription makeup bag that is delivered monthly, around the middle of the month, and costs $10 per month. There are dozens of monthly subscription services out there, but this is one of my favorites. These glam bags are offered by Ipsy and are perfect for beauty lovers looking for new products and a great value.
