IMG_6257

I have been loving my banana bread recipe that I had posted and wanted to try something new since I had bananas that were very ripe. I decided to make a super easy blueberry banana muffins.

Ingredients: 

  • 4 large ripe bananas
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup of blueberries – I use frozen blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon of all purpose flour.

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 and grease a cupcake pan.
  2. In a bowl, mash up the bananas.
  3. Mix in the eggs and cake mix.
  4. Coat your blueberries in the flour.
  5. Add the blueberries to the banana, egg and cake mixture.
  6. Scoop into the cupcake pan. I had to use 2 cupcake pans since I got 19 cupcakes out of this one.
  7. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes.

You can even replace the blueberries for chocolate chips or even walnuts if you wanted.

How to unwind after a long day.

IMG_5776

We all have those days where we are feeling so overwhelmed, stressed and just tired after a long day at work or even just at home. Especially right now, I know so many people who are stressed, and just having such a hard time with everything going on; so I wanted to share a few things that you can do at home to unwind and a few things that we can do to unwind once life goes back to “normal.”

At home:

  • Take a bath: I know not everyone loves to take a bath and if you don’t then take a nice long hot shower. Bath especially with a bath bomb, or epson salt helps me relax so much.
  • Have a glass of wine: I’m not big on drinking alcohol but I do love to have a glass of wine here and there to relax me at nights.
  • Disconnect from technology and read a book. We use our technology’s so much and it’s good to disconnect from them especially after a long day and just cuddle up on the couch or our bed and read a book.
  • Have a hot cup of tea. I love to have a hot cup of tea preferably a mint or chamomile tea while reading my book.
  • Watch a movie: I love to relax and watch a show, movie or even YouTube, especially something with comedy… laughter is the best medicine after all!
  • Bake: I don’t know about me but for me baking is so relaxing, I love to bake, and if you do too, try it!
  • Go for a walk: exercise will surely help put you in a better mood.

Outside of the house (once everything goes back to normal)

  • Gym: go exercise at the gym!
  • Gym spa: go to the steam room, or even the jacuzzi at your gym and relax!
  • Massage: get a massage…nothing more relaxing than a massage right?
  • Girls night: nothing like a little girls night out to help you relieve some of the day stress.

What are some of your favorite ways to unwind after a long day?
