Evening Routine Vlog

I love watching other people’s vlogs. There’s just something about seeing what other people do in their day-to-day lives that intrigues me. With that being said, I’m trying to get into vlogging more (or at least doing more “My Day” type blog posts). This post and video was a way to get my toes wet. I filmed it while no one else was around and I only did it for a short amount of time. Still, I did it! Hopefully there will be more to come!

In the video, I am making dinner which I mention is a blog post already. You can find my sausage and veggies recipe here.

If you’d like to see what I get up to in the evenings after work, check out my video here!

What does your evening routine look like?

Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

This was the first time that I have baked something other than boxed brownies in my oven in my apartment (at least desert-wise)! Go me!

I really tried to use as few bowls and utensils as I could, and clean as I went along so the whole process was so much better when it was the end and I just got to eat the cookies and not have to clean. Highly recommend trying this out.

This recipe is originally from Toll House. My family has been making this specific recipe for years and it is the best! You can find the original recipe here.

Sausage and Veggies Recipe

As you know, I was getting a little bored and feeling uninspired by my “What I ate Wednesday” posts and I wanted to do something different each week for my food category. Shout out to my mom for actually giving me a really good, easy idea. For the next few weeks, I’ll be trying out a recipe a week.  That way, I’m forced to eat new things (instead of cooking the same 5 meals over and over) and I have something new and exciting for the blog each week!

This week, I found a recipe on Pinterest from Chelsea’s Messy Apron that was similar to something I’ve made before. I thought it would be a slow start into trying out new recipes. I didn’t follow the recipe exactly, but I made it with things I already had around the house. I love how colorful it turned out!


Camille’s version of sausage and veggies:

You will need:

  • 3 Chicken sausage (I love the spinach and feta sausage from Wegmans)
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 yellow squash
  • 1 bag of frozen carrots (or fresh if you have them)
  • Olive Oil
  • Spices to taste: oregano, parsley, garlic powder, salt, pepper
  • Anything else you like

I cut up all my veggies and the sausage and mixed them in with the olive oil and spices.


Then, just pour it onto a baking pan and bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.


This was delicious, nutritious, and lasted me 1 dinner and 2 lunches! Plus you can mix it up and use whatever veggies are in season. I will definitely be adding this one to my rotation of dinners! Let me know if you make this!

February Favorites

I’ve done these types of videos before on my channel, and while I still might do them with just beauty products from time to time on my YouTube channel, I also like to include other things that I’ve been loving during the month that aren’t beauty products.

So, here are the things that I’ve been loving in February. They’re random and unrelated, but they really are things that I’ve enjoyed this past month.


Turtleneck Shirt: This was a recent purchase that I got at Goodwill and I am obsessed! The brand is Pure Jill from J Jill, but I couldn’t find this exact shirt on the website. They do, however, have lots of shirts and sweaters that are similar to this one. I love the color and how comfy it is! It is 3/4 length sleeve so it’s not great when it’s freezing out, but it’s great for warmer or indoor days.

Cloverfield Movies: My bf and I started the month by watching 10 Cloverfield Lane (2)  because it was free to watch on Amazon. We liked it, but were very confused by the whole thing. Then, we realized that the Cloverfield Paradox (3) was available to watch on Netflix. Then, he remembered that he owned the original Cloverfield (1) movie. So we watched them 2, 3, 1. Although I’m still not sure how these movies are related, I still really enjoyed watching them this month. They’re definitely sci-fi, dystopian films.

Maybelline FitMe Loose Finishing Powder: I’ve heard quite a few people talk about this product and I was in the market for a loose powder after I ran out of my RCMA No Color Powder. So I went to Walmart and picked this guy up. I’m loving it so far! I use it everyday with a sponge to set my concealer under my eyes. Sometimes, I also use it to set the rest of my face with a brush. Highly recommend!

Pur Bronze and Brighten Cheek Palette: This was something I got in my February BoxyCharm box and I’ve used it every day since. It has a bronze shade, a blush shade, and a highlight shade. I understand these shades may not be for everyone, but in my opinion, they are buildable enough that they could work for quite a few skin tones if you want just a little product or to build it up. My favorite is the blush!

ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in Mama: I’ve been experimenting with wearing more “bold” lip colors on an everyday basis. I just got sick of wearing a nude or neutral day after day. This shade is not too red and not too orange, it’s somewhere perfectly in the middle. The only thing I would recommend is to wear a chapstick or lip balm underneath, since this formula can be a little drying.

ColourPop No Filter Concealer:  This is my second favorite concealer of all time, right after Tarte Shape Tape! The difference is, this one from ColourPop is much cheaper! It oxidizes a little once you put it on, so I would recommend picking a shade lighter than you normally would if you are looking to use this to brighten. It’s full coverage and doesn’t crease easily!

Wegmans Just Tea in English Breakfast Black: This is the tea I reach for when I need a little caffeine, but I don’t want to drink a coffee. I can re-use the bag for a couple cups of tea without it being watery!

What things have you been loving this month!?

Pantry Organization

The other weekend I got into a cleaning and organizing mood. Not only did I clean the entire apartment (here) but I did something that I’ve been meaning to do since we moved in in June. I organized the pantry. Yes. I did it. And it’s now pretty impressive if I do say so myself.

I tried to put everything that belonged together, like baking supplies, snacks, spices, etc. into their own separate space in the pantry so they could be found easily. I also threw out things that moved with either of us and had been opened already like chips.

So without further ado, here is my masterpiece.







I’m still hoping to put some of this into nice labeled jars, like the ones in the featured image, but that’s a job for another weekend! Hopefully, this gives you some inspiration for cleaning out an area of your home that really needs to be done. What area should I focus on next? The closet? The garage? Let me know!

Easy Smoothie Recipe

I’ve been searching for easy, healthy things to make for breakfast. I go through smoothie phases where I make them for a while, but then I stop for years. Well, I’m back on my smoothie kick! This is the one that I’ve been making recently – you can adjust it to your preferences!



You will need:

  • 1/2 cup of Mixed Frozen Berries (or any kind of fruit)
  • 1/3 cup of Greek Vanilla Yogurt
  • 1 scoop of protein powder
  • 1 cup of Almond Milk (you can change this depending on how thick you want your smoothie)

Just stick all of this together, blend it up, and enjoy!


Let me know if you try this or make your own version!


What I Ate Wednesday – February 7, 2018

I’m looking for more inspiration for my weekly food posts. I’m not a very creative cook, so I really don’t have many ideas for new recipes. Please give me ideas of other things to write about on the food section of my blog! Or maybe I should redesign, get rid of this category and do something else. Let me know! Anyway, this is what you get this week.



For breakfast this morning I made something quick so I could get a few more minutes in bed. I’ve been really into peanut butter lately. I sometimes go months without eating peanut butter, and then I want to eat it every day – it’s just one of those foods I get obsessed with and then sick of. I also had a coffee.



I’m aware this is not a very appetizing-looking photo of my lunch, but it actually did taste pretty good. This was leftover from a Mexican takeout dinner last night. This is a fish taco with rice and beans on the side. Honestly, this restaurant that we ordered from is not my favorite, but everyone else in the friend group loves it.



I had quite a large snack this afternoon. And even though I had coffee, I ate too much, made myself sleepy, and had to take a nap. Ugh. I made popcorn with butter and salt.




My boyfriend made dinner for us tonight. I tried to save some of my salmon and peas for lunch tomorrow so I also made myself tomato, mozzarella, and basil as a side!

What I Ate Wednesday – January 31, 2018

Back again with a WIAW!



I’ve been waking up SO hungry this week! I definitely could not skip breakfast! I had two fried eggs and a piece of toast with butter. Obviously I also had a coffee.



I brought my lunch to work today. I packed leftover spaghetti and turkey meatballs. Last week I posted a link to a water bottle that was not the one I had (oops) so you can find my water bottle here.





Yes I had two snacks today. i had some goldfish and water at work while my students were eating their snack. I also found my new favorite snack at home – camembert cheese on bread and a pickle. You can call me weird but it is delicious.


I was so hungry tonight I completely forgot to take a picture of my dinner. I’ll be honest, though, and admit that we ordered pizza!

What I Ate Wednesday – January 25, 2018

Sorry this post is going up a day late – I actually took these pictures on a Wednesday and fell asleep before I could get the post up! Anyway, here it goes!



I just could not get out of bed this morning so I didn’t have time for breakfast. Of course, I needed that coffee though, as I was rushing around getting ready! I know it’s not healthy to not eat breakfast, but time was limited!



I packed my lunch for work today. I had leftover pasta with pesto sauce. You know that’s my favorite! I also had pretzel sticks. I’m pretty good about drinking water during the day if I drink it with a slice of lemon and lime. This water bottle is the best because it keeps my water bottle cold all day! You can find it here.



Hey I actually cooked tonight! I made salmon and asparagus in the toaster oven with olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. I also had leftover mashed potatoes. This was a delicious dinner!

A Day in the Life 1-23-18

This is a post I’ve been meaning to do for a while now, since these are my favorite types of posts to read on other people’s blogs. My life isn’t particularly exciting, but this is what a typical Tuesday looks like for me.


My alarm goes off at 6:00 am and I am never ready for it. I usually snooze it once or twice if I’m being honest. They I take Mila out and give her breakfast. I make myself coffee and drink it while I’m getting ready for work.

I leave for work around 7:20 and get there at 7:45. I’m a kindergarten teacher so my days are filled with runny noses, crafts, and endless stories. Today we were working on the letter O so we did an octopus craft. I love how they turned out!



I had an alarm set on my phone to remind me to take pictures for this blog post, but of course I still forgot! After work I went to the post office and then to Wegmans because we are on our last roll of toilet paper and that’s a situation no one wants to find themselves in! I totally forgot to take pictures of my errands, but just picture me buying toilet paper.

I got home around 4:30 and took Mila on a nice long walk around the apartment complex. I was feeling pretty tired so I made myself a cup of coffee and had a snack of pretzels and cheese. I just like to chill and watch YouTube videos while I eat my snack.


At this point I really meant to go to the gym, but I was still waiting for the caffeine to kick in. So I sat on the couch and did some work for Usborne Books. I have a few online parties coming up that I’m getting ready for.


Around 5:30 ish I finally got myself up and went to the gym! Our apartment complex has a little gym similar to a hotel gym so I’ve been trying to go there lately. I’ve actually gone the past three days! Here’s a very flattering picture of me at the gym.


I was STARVING when I got back from the gym and there was leftover rice in the fridge. I also made some chicken dumplings. Since my boyfriend is on a business trip this week I’m all alone so I just watched more YouTube while I was eating my dinner.


After dinner I facetimed with my boyfriend and cuddled with Mila. I’m currently sitting right now at the end of this day writing this post. I’ll most likely just shower, take Mila for another long walk, and then read in bed. My feet are so tired today so I’m really looking forward to that!

Let me know if you like these kinds of posts – I had a lot of fun writing this one and I’d love to do more! Have a great day/night!
