Almond Joy Overnight Oats

IMG_3923

Hey guys! I’m super excited for today’s post! It’s been a long time coming and I’m so proud of it. Almond Joys are one of my favorite candies, but since I’m trying to be healthy, I’ve been staying away from candy. Sometimes I still crave a little something sweet though and although I don’t know if I can classify this as healthy, it’s definitely healthier than eating a bunch of Almond Joys and is a super filling breakfast. I hope you guys enjoy it!

This recipe is created and owned solely by the author of this blog and any similarity to  recipes elsewhere is purely coincidental.

What You’ll Need:

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup milk (you can use whatever kind you’d like; I usually use regular old 2% cows milk)
  • 2 tbs chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet, but dark chocolate is probably better for you)
  • 1-2 tbs unsweetened (or sweetened if you prefer) shredded coconut (if you’re a big fan of coconut like me, go for 2 tbs, but if you’re kind of like, “eh, coconut is fine” just add 1 tbs)
  • 1 tbs chia seeds
  • 1 tbs Ovaltine
  • 2 tbs sliced almonds

The Recipe:

  1. First, grab yourself a jar. Any jar will do as long as it’s empty and clean.
  2. Now you can basically just add all the ingredients to the jar, but if you’re like me and like to have a little rhyme and reason to things, I’ll give you the breakdown of what I normally do:
    1. I like to add my oats first since it’s basically the center of the whole dish. Everything else is just flavor.
    2. Then I add my chocolate chips, shredded coconut, Ovaltine, and chia seeds. (I don’t usually add the almonds until the next day because I like to keep them crunchy!)
    3. In goes the milk! Now get yourself a spoon and mix it all together!
    4. Now cover your jar, put it in the fridge, and get some sleep. In the morning you’ll have beautiful, delicious, Almond Joy Oats!
    5. Add the almonds here. Now eat.

Lemon Moonglow Bath Bomb Review

Version 3

Hey guys! I hope you had a good weekend! I’m really excited to be blogging again. All my AP testing is over and there’s not much going on at school anymore other than a bunch of papers due in the beginning of June. This is the first product review I’ve posted since January (*gasps*), but I’m excited to get back in the swing of things!

I got this bath bomb for my birthday and since it was from a brand I’ve never heard of before, I was excited to try it. As soon as I dropped it in the bath, it filled the room with a sweet lemon smell (if you know what lemon verbena smells like, it smells exactly like that). The scent faded after a little bit, but I could still smell it despite the fact I had a cold. However, I wasn’t a big fan of the sparkly film the bath bomb left on surface of the water. Once I stepped out of the bath I felt kind of gross, like I was super hydrated, but with something that didn’t really let my skin breathe. The bath also completely covered me in sparkles, but not in a terrible way. The sparkles actually washed off pretty easily and the ones that stayed on the body were subtle enough that it looked like I had a nice shimmer about me.

Overall, I would say that I liked it, but I wouldn’t buy it again. I like feeling hydrated when I step out of the bath, but I don’t like feeling gross.

Have you ever tried this bath bomb? What did you think?
