6 On 6: Septemeber

Hello and welcome back to another 6 on 6 post. If you aren’t familiar with 6 on 6 feel free to read about it here. This link up is bought to you by Emma, so be sure to check her site out. This month’s color is purple.

Here are my 6 purple picks for this month:

 I’m kind of a makeup junkie and am always trying new things. Lately I’ve been all about matte lipsticks, however when I saw this Melted Metal lipstick by Too Faced  in Metallic Jelly I just had to have it. The color is perfect for fall and I love the metallic looking flecks in it.


Some of you that follow me on Twitter Instagram may already know I’m into Animal Crossing. I love everything about it, but I especially love constantly changing my character up. It’s hard to see here but my person is sporting some lavender pigtails.


I love notebooks, journals, all types of writing products. However when it comes to school  I prefer these smaller sized notebooks by Five Star. As I was back to school shopping I came across this cute floral one I had to have. I’m currently using it for both my Chemistry and ASL class but am thinking of buying another and using one for each class.


A few weeks back I decided I wanted to get into some comics. I started to ask for recommendations and read reviews, across the board The Wicked + The Divine by Image Comics came up over and over. It’s about a group of teenagers that have been transformed into Gods, however they are not immortals. I don’t want to get too into here because I have a post all about it coming up this week where I’ll be giving away Vol 1 to one lucky person. Be sure to check back for my review and to enter the giveaway.


Okay so technically my niece isn’t purple, but how could I pass up the opportunity to show her off in this cute purple outfit?Being that I have all boys having a niece is an excuse for me to buy all of the cute girl outfits and hair bows. My kids adore their cousin and I’m sure you’ll be see plenty of all them in upcoming posts.


So while I didn’t take this picture I couldn’t  have a post about purple things without mentioning one of my favorite podcast Welcome to Night Vale. This podcast is about a made up dessert town called Night Vale. It’s posted twice a month and talks about life in Night Vale. Listen along as Ceceil reports all the going ons, like mayor elections, what the Glow Cloud and it’s kid have been up to, the Faceless Old Woman who secretly lives in your home, and the weather. I was hooked from the first time I listened and am excited for the book to come out in October.

These are my 6 on 6 pictures let me know if you participated, I would love to see everyone else’s posts.

What are some of your favorite purple things? 


Till next time

Mini Turkey Muffins

It’s Sunday which means one thing, well besides tomorrow being Monday and it’s back to work for many of us. Sunday means meal prep time. Today I’ll share with you one of my go to recipes. It’s yummy and yields enough portions for a few days. However I can’t take all the credit, I’ve actually modified it from Jamie Eason’s version which can be found on the Body Building site. Feel free to follow whichever you prefer, or just add/take away what you like.

Ingredients

2 lbs ground turkey or chicken
3 egg whites

About 1 teaspoon Chia Seeds (optional)

Then shape mixture into balls and place in pan. I can get about 12 depending on how big I make them.

Place pan in oven for 40 minutes. Take out and let cool. Eat or store for future meals. I usually have two with some veggies in the morning or afternoon.

I like making these because they’re delicious, a good source of protein, and I can keep cooking/prepping other food while they cook. Give them a try and let me know what you think. If you make any modifications I would love to hear them.

Enjoy your Sunday and let’s get ready to conquer the week.
