Current craving: coconuts

Rather than sweat the small stuff, Mama has decided to embrace it. Yes, these days bathing suits with snaps and coconuts is what is making Mama happy. Coconuts are not only healthy for you (think of all that coconut water you’ve been drinking) but they smell good and they make you feel like you’re on a tropical island where it’s warm and sunny. Warm and sunny is hard to find these days since it’s been a frigid 32 degrees at night…so Mama has been planning ahead for summer. All of the below cravings will warm you up this January and get you in the mood for spring.

Convertible Maxi Dress, $59.97 (use code: ENTIRE50 for 50 percent off for a price below $30!), at intimint.com. To lounge in, to sleep in…to live in.

Roasted Coconut Chips, $2.49, at Trader Joes. Addicting and delicious…really…and a healthy snack.

Pure Fiji Coconut Sugar Rub, $38.47, at amazon.com. This will make you smell so good and your skin will glow with softness.

Coconut Rice in the rice cooker: One and half cups of rinsed white Jasmine Rice, 3 cups of Light Coconut Milk (plus 1/2 cup for drizzling), 2 tablespoons of unsweetened coconut flakes. Add rice and coconut to rice cooker. Once cooked (about 20-25 minutes) mix and add coconut flakes. Add extra coconut milk over rice and serve. So yummy!!

Mama says just Kohl(‘s) with it…

Mama got paid to do a lot of shopping this week and it was so fun but don’t you ever feel like when you have money to spend, you can never find anything you like?! Then when you don’t have the budget…you seem to find everything you do want (need, really!). Mama for the first time two weeks ago went into Kohl’s, which just happened to move into the neighborhood not too long ago. Mama is not usually a department store person because honestly, there is so MUCH to look at and sift through that it can be quite overwhelming.

Kohl’s is not at all like that. It was clean, the clothes were actually very well made and Mama couldn’t resist picking up a few items that were just calling Mama’s name because of the prices. The prices were AMAZING and Mama is not getting paid to say that! Now Mama is just about as obsessed with checking out the local Kohl’s for new items as Mama is about Target. They definitely lured Mama in with their designer brands and the Kohl’s Cash that they give you to come back and spend. While Mama is too smart for their marketing ploy…it does make one feel better about spending money if they feel like they’re going to get it back.

Enough already…here’s a few of Mama’s picks from Kohl’s that just can’t be beat…you’ll look stylish and you’ll have extra money in your pocket!

Happy Shopping Mamas! XOXO
