Sandstorms + Vitacost

Good Morning! To those of you who celebrated Independence Day and to those who did not, I hope you all had a wonderful day full of Happiness, Laughter, and Love.

In the Mix;
1 frozen Banana
1/2 c. Strawberries
1 clementine
2 tbsp. pb2
1/2 tsp. of vanilla extra
**oh and can't forget a little cereal crumbled on top**
Today has started off fairly usual to other mornings. I woke up around 6:30 with a rumbling stomach as if I've never eaten before. For breakfast I decided on a Banana, Strawberry, Clementine and Peanut Butter Smoothie... oh and of course my morning readings. (Oh and please do not mind my awful picture taking skills! Maybe one day they will be perfected, but I wouldn't hold your breath)

After doing some cleaning and reading a few blogs, I decided to head to the gym. On my walk to the gym (about a mile), the weather was beautiful. Hot, but sunny. Well after finishing up a 12 mile run and walking outside, I was greeted with a lovely Sandstorm. I wish I had a picture to show you, but just imagine wind + sand = flying everywhere! That may be one of the worst things about living in Kuwait. Some days you have to wear a scarf to cover your face, and sunglasses. Yes, those are the times I feel like I'm about to go rob a bank.

 Now I'm home, freshly showered & about to dig into my lunch:

Salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, and turkey.
Plus a side of toast topped with a little butter
I know this is becoming quite lengthy, but if you're still with me.. thank you! I wanted to briefly discuss an online store called "Vitacost". I see many of you use "iHerb" for products like pb2, and other wonderful items you aren't able to find in stores. As I've never ordered through iHerb, I have through Vitacost.

Vitacost offers over 2,000 of the most-trusted natural brands, and healthy living essentials at a remarkably low price. There is also over 30,000 different items to choose from. If you're looking for health foods & snacks, CHECK. If you're looking for bath and body products, CHECK. If you're looking for natural household items, CHECK. If you're looking for vitamins, minerals, herbs, and sports nutrition supplements, CHECK. Vitacost offers not only low prices, but deals as well. Some deals can be up to 50% off. Also, their customer service is remarkable. My package usually arrives within 5 days after ordering, and am always sent an e-mail to make sure I was properly satisfied.

Can you believe all of this was only $56.00!!
Below is a link for $10.00 off your free purchase, and you'll also notice that if you spend over $49.00, your shipping is free. Check it out, and enjoy :)

If you managed to make it through this whole post, thank you! I hope you all have a wonderful Morning & Afternoon! 


  1. Hmm I would love if I got that stuff delivered, I may need to check this out especially if it will save me money each week at the grocery store.

  3. Vitacost rocks! They always have things I can't find in the stores PLUS better prices. Can't beat that!

    1. Righttt!! I seriously place an order every week or two. They don't have many of my "foods" over here in Kuwait, so I'm constantly having to stock up on goods.

  4. Jessie, thanks so much for your comment on my post today! I'm so glad you left it so I could find your blog. You've got such an interesting story! I've never heard of Vitacost... I'm going to have to check it out! I usually purchase all my food items in the grocery store. It would be neat to get some in the mail instead!

    1. Awe, you are more than welcome. Thank you so much for heading this way as well.

      Please check it out, it's such a great online store. And I mean who doesn't like getting food in the mail?? To me it's like Christmas :)

  5. Isn't it so funny how you wake up and feel so hungry like you've never eaten before! I feel like that every morning. And I've never heard of Vitacost I definitely want to check it out! Thanks for sharing :)

    1. Oh your welcome!!

      Ha, I do too.. no matter if I eat a huge meal the night before or not!
