[ad] I'm a girl who loves a good manicure so I love to save time and money by doing my nails myself at home. Between constantly typing on my computer, cleaning the house, and chasing a toddler my nails really taking a beating. Because of this, my “manicures” tend to last me maybe 24 hours if I’m lucky. At that point, I was doing my nails on the daily and ain’t no mama got time for that! This week I'm sharing my love for @cndworld and my top tips for getting a flawless manicure from the comfort of your own home! #CNDVINYLUXatRA #sponsored •

First Starbucks holiday drink of the season! Anyone else just LOVE red cup season?...although my cup is green 🤔 but that's beside the point. The point is that we're finally headed into the holidays and this girl couldn't be more excited for it 🙌🏻

Finally tried @cbdportland and I’m officially obsessed! They have four locations in Portland, ME and one location in Freeport, ME so if you’re in the Portland area, I highly recommended stopping in! I had an iced caramel latte and I couldn’t recommend it more! •

We spent the morning exploring Kennebunk and then this child fell asleep in the car 😬 we’re now those parents who drive around aimlessly to ensure our child gets a full nap lol 1 hour in and I’m starving and desperately need to pee 😂 but at least she’s sleeping 👌🏻

Healthy Snacks for Busy Moms

Healthy Snacks for Busy Moms | MainelyKeating.com

Sometimes life can get hectic and when life gets hectic, we tend to let our diet and exercise slip. I’m guilty of it. When Zack and I were moving cross-country, I ended up having one big “cheat month”. It was horrible, you guys. I also didn’t know that I was pregnant yet either so I ended up feeling even more guilty once I got that positive pregnancy test. But during that month, I wasn’t at the gym since half the time was spent in the car or living in hotel rooms and I was eating way too many cheeseburgers, milkshakes and fries (my guilty pleasure combination…especially while traveling). Coming from someone who had spent 12 months getting healthy and making better choices for my health and fitness, I was incredibly disappointed in myself for letting my eating habits slip so easily during our trip.

Before leaving Maine, Zack’s mom packed us a ton of healthier snack options for the car ride which helped us a ton (although we still ended up eating bad for actual meals). She packed everything from fruits, to beef jerky to hard boiled eggs. We had just about everything you could think of in the car. Now that we’re more settled and I’m pregnant and constantly up and moving around, I’ve made it a priority to fill our kitchen with healthier snack options. That way, whenever I reach for something to snack on, it’s very likely that it’s good for me. This allows me to snack as much as I want without having to worry about consequences. So today I’m sharing some of my favorite healthy snacks for busy women!

  • Berries
  • Apples and peanut butter
  • Bananas and peanut butter
  • Veggies and dip
  • Fruits
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Triscuits and hummus
  • Plain oatmeal topped with fresh berries
  • Wheat thins
  • Mixed nuts
  • Grapes
  • Sliced cucumbers and dip
  • Dark chocolate
  • Beef jerky
  • Air-popped popcorn
  • Protein bars
  • Oven-baked chips
  • Cheese sticks
  • Hard boiled eggs

What are your favorite healthy snacks?
