Superhero Mom & Fabulous giveaway

I have a special Monday treat for you guys! is giving away 4 amazing prizes. You can win a Vitamix, a $500 Sephora Gift Card, a Roomba and a $500 Cash. How awesome would this be for Mother's Day for yourself or for the Mother in your life!? I can think of quite a few ways I could use each of these prizes.  In addition to these 4 amazing prizes, you can win a $200 Gift Card to Williams-Sonoma! 

Anyone who knows me will know that I'm a sucker for handy kitchen goods. And Williams-Sonoma is one of my favorite stores to shop. The best purchase I've ever made at Williams-Sonoma is this Hurom slow juicer. We use this almost every morning to make juice. As a cooking enthusiast, I love anything that helps me simplify my life and day in the kitchen. I have a recipe post of my easy and yummy green juice here, if you are interested! 

I'm fairly positive you all know one of my favorite sites, by now, but if you haven't heard of, you need to check them out.  They have some great coupons for just about everything on your grocery or shopping list.  Make sure you print some out before your next trip to save some extra cash.  Also, now Mother's Day is approaching and I know not everyone has a gift for the Mom's in their life yet.  Make it easier for you to check out their Mother's Day Deals for not only great ideas on gifts, but also some great prices too. 

Enter down below today! I've teamed up with 20 bloggers to host this giveaway and hope you all enter to win!

Nippon | Japan

Here are some shots from my iPhone. I realize that it's not the best quality, but you guys get the idea. 
It's been so nice to be back in Japan. I've been rediscovering more about myself... It's been such an intense trip so far, but also so stimulating and inspiring. We just got into my home town, Sapporo last night. I feel at home in Tokyo, but this is my old stomping grounds, so I can't help but to feel so nostalgic with everything I see here. 

I'm so happy that my friend can experience this with me for the second time! But also at the same time, I miss Lehi so so so much. I wish he could be here as well and see where I grew up. Sadly, he had to stay back for work related reasons. :( 

I'm already planning out next visit in my head... 

I won't be back in the states until the 12th of May. That seems forever away right now, but I'm sure it'll come fast. We've already been here for an entire week! I'm going to soak up everything while I can. 
Can't wait to keep you guys updated about this special trip of mine back home!

Hey guys! 
How are you all doing this fine..... evening...?! 
I honestly don't know what day or time it is in the US right now... 
I'm thinking it's about 7PM MST on the 29th. It's 10AM on the 30th here in Japan. 
I'm still suffering from severe jet lag. 
It usually takes me about a week to 10 days to get acclimated with the time in another country, but this time it seems to be taking a bit longer. 6AM on the dot my body wakes up wanting food. 
And by 10PM at night, I'm in bed fighting to get up and stay awake just enough to wash my face and brush my teeth. 

Anyway, I don't know if you would be interested, but I will post some photos from my trip tomorrow. 
And please don't judge. I'm looking pretty haggard these days as I travel. 
I am definitely not one of those people who travel glamorously or in style. 
This is real life, people. I'm wearing flats, comfy top, and practical jacket to brave this windy weather here. So get ready for some inspirational location and food photos and not-so-inspirational outfit photos. It's coming right at ya. 

Oh, and by the way, if I sound funny in my posts, that because I've completely switched over my language mode to Japanese and I'm struggling attempting to speak English here. So please bear with me!
