Happy Fall. So here in Michigan it is getting cold. We have also been getting crazy high winds lately, which just make it feel that much colder. So here are some things that have been keeping me occupied lately.
I made a succulent terrarium. My inspiration came from my favorite Michigan YouTuber: How Jen Does It. She featured this on one of her house tours and a tutorial. I was obsessed, and had to create my own.
I also made a few other pieces for other rooms in my house to enjoy over the cold winter months ahead.
Picked up this at Trader Joe’s.
Cannot wait to try this out. Posts to follow! Here are some details on what this is. Also wanted to mention that Trader Joe’s sells this for $15.99. All other prices I have seen for this have been upwards of $50.00. So if interested go to Trader Joe’s.
Had this canvas photo made. It was a coupon code from my Fab Fit Fun Box from Picture it on Canvas. It was a $75.00 value coupon code to purchase anything on the site. I was beyond excited to order this. This is my all time favorite picture of me and my husband. Were in Bora Bora celebrating our 20th. Wedding Anniversary. Bora Bora Post Here.
Ordered this box because it looked like a fun quarterly box subscription. It was loaded with stuff. So glad I ordered it.

My blog is always a mix of things. Food, Health, Reviews and Travel. I try to keep it a balanced mix and today’s post is a bit of all the above.
I was sent the following BeetsBlue to review. I never thought I would want to use a Heart Rate Monitor, so that is exactly why I wanted to try it. I am not a runner or by any stretch of the imagination athletic, but I do my own versions of workouts that fit my lifestyle and age. I am health conscious and am very active and I live by getting in all my 10,000 steps per day, and I love to walk. I hiking/walking at a local farm as well as using my indoor treadmill are my main ways to stay heart healthy.

How can I use it?
in the following circumstances:
- If you can’t find your keys in a rush or you can’t find them in your bag
- If you left your wallet or purse behind or misplaced it
- If you attach PagerTag to your travel bag, your phone will notify you when it is nearby at the baggage claim area
- If your tagged pet is outside of a set range
- If your item has been stolen or moved by someone else to an area you’re not aware of (accidents happen)
Love the Alarm on this PagerTag, while testing it I went out of range and the alarm really was loud enough to locate and or alert you that your item is not where you left it.
Also, a few things I plan to use for is traveling and also on my little Ginger girl. When we travel or camp she is a very curious little girl and I can see her running off if she was to ever squirm out of her collar. (this happened once while camping when she got scared of some fireworks)
Adorable, but scared and sometimes curious. Especially when fireworks season is upon us.
Here I am able to keep track of my work bag which hold my small purse and my keys. I use a carabiner clips so I can keep my keys and both my bags together and track all (3) three items!
It was so easy to connect to Blue Tooth with my phone and Install the app at the Play Store. I was up and running in only a few minutes and then had fun learning and playing with all the settings and the alarms.

Why do I need to monitor my heart rate?
Control of your heart rate is very important for your training, as it helps you to achieve your desired results. Depending on the goal of your workout, you can:
- Strengthen your cardiovascular system
- Increase your stamina
- Burn fat
- Avoid your heart beating too fast
This is especially important for those over 50 years of age or for those recuperating.
The results of your training depend on your heart rate zone. This has a lower and upper limit. If your heart rate is in the target zone, you will achieve the expected results from your training.
I will keep you posted on the BeetsBlu product updates as I use them more in my daily life. Thank you for sending me them to review, I really enjoyed and liked using these easy and functional gadgets. I really loved the PagerTag and will be getting a second one for my husband. I think he can really benefit from having one himself. I am so excited and really love and will recommend the PagerTag to friends and family. I really love the value of this for people who travel, or just might need help locating items, it is so versatile.
Here’s a few other highlights of items I have been loving and using.
Been hooked on Subscription beauty boxes lately. I work 10 to 11 hour days most days of the week with weekends off so I find I love getting little boxes of fun after a really long day. I’m usually gone 12-13 hours each day with my commute to work. SO this is my little perk me up pamper gifts I love to send to myself. Here is a Birch Box I purchased featuring another YouTuber I love Tati from Glam Life Guru.
Been digging my Erin Condren Planner. Wow. It is so much fun to keep this book and has helped me stay organized with my busy work life lately.
My latest Bestowed Box. Full of Yummy goodies. I Love this box and have been getting it for almost 2 years now. I am a true fan.
Celebrated 95 years of My Grandmothers life in Arizona. She is truly the most healthy person I have ever met. She was born in Rome and is perfect health. She eats well, enjoys wine with dinner and walks daily. I love everything about her. She is such an inspiration to me. Posted my travel bag in this post.
I love to pack, it is my obsession. The perfect bag. The perfect travel list. I live to improve upon it each time I travel. I do realize that the perfect travel anything exists, I just love to pack and make lists. Call me weird.
Little Visitor. He just chilled on the seawall and let us watch him. He was cool.
