Top 5 Erin Condren Products

I absolutely love Erin Condren. You already know how much of a fan I am of their Life Planners. You can see the full blog post here or watch it again below:

But did you know they have an array of personalized products you can use to stay organized? Not to mention how darn cute everything is!

Here are my Top 5 Erin Condren Products of the moment:

Yes, it's what the Erin Condren is most known for and for a very good reason. Not only can you personalize these planners with your name, preferred cover prints and photos; but you can add all kinds of accessories for your everyday needs. This is the most perfect agenda you'll ever own.

I used them all the time for various things. I use them to decorate my planner/agendas. I use them to personalize gifts. I've also started using them to address my Poshmark and giveaway packages. You'll love their personalized labels, photo stickers and more!

This one Erin Condren has been the most helpful product to keep my family's schedule in order. With this weekly schedule pad, everyone is aware of of everyone's schedule in the family.

Use them to serve drinks during parties or to organize your desk and vanity. You'll love this clear tray that you can personalize along with a fun print of your choice.

5. *NEW* Erin Condren Notebooks

This is the latest creation by Erin Condren. Whether you use it for school, for writing your latest song or novel or note-taking at the office; you'll adore this personalized notebook. Like the planners, you'll be able to add tons of accessories to this notebook like extra storage or even a calendar or white board.

DIY Gold Glitter Vase for Home or Wedding Decor

I love decorative vases. I think they're beautiful to have throughout your home or in centerpieces at weddings. They can be quite expensive when you're purchasing them at home stores but super affordable and easy to make yourself. This DIY project has no glue, no spray paint and no mess involved! And did I mention it was cheap?!

What you'll need:
Vase(s) - find them at discount stores and thrift shops to make this a super affordable ones
Duck Tape - I'm using gold glittered tape but feel free to find a design you love (silver, lace, etc.)
Wine Glass Writer - I got these in a POPSUGAR Must Have Box and LOVE them!
Measuring Tape - you may use a rule if you don't have measuring tape
Scissors - Mine is from the Nate Berkus for Target collection

1. Use a measuring tape to decide where you'll place strips of tape.

2. Using the measuring tape and a Wine Glass Writer, mark where you'll strip will go. Marking the glass will help you keep your strip straight all the way around the vase. (I sadly misplaced my gold wine glass writer so I had to use the silver.)

3. Now pick up your Glitter Duck Tape and begin sticking it onto our vase.

Be sure to follow the marking you made to keep the strip straight.

4. Repeat the previous steps for any additional strips of tape you wish to add.

5. Place them as your centerpieces or throughout your home and enjoy!

Fit Friday: Best Taco Salad Ever + Some Tips

I love taco salads and this is one of my absolute favorite dishes to make for dinner. I tend to believe that the more colorful your plate, the healthier and more delicious your dish is. This will be one of the most colorful recipes you'll find on Domesticated Me. 

Start off your dish with your greens. I like using dark greens whenever possible because they're packed with iron. I find that kale can be too overpowering so spinach is perfect. [Domesticated Me Tip: Use a one of these Prepworks from Progressive International Lettuce Keepers to keep greens fresher longer]

1. Chop up your spinach and place it at the bottom of a large salad bowl. (The amount for all of the ingredients depends on taste and how many people you wish to serve.)

2. Chop up some red onions.

3. Chop up some mangos. [Domesticated Me Tip: I like to slice up the mango in squares with the skin still on the halves and then scoop them out with a spoon. I find that it saves a little time and is less messy.]

4. Chop up some fresh cilantro. [Domesticated Me Tip: Always cut up all your herbs as soon as you first use them. Place all of the unused herbs in a ziplock bag and freeze it. They'll stay fresh for much longer. I'm embarrassed to think of all the herbs I've thrown away because of not doing this right away.]

5. Open up a can of low-sodium black beans. You can make these fresh but I find using some canned goods are easier and less time consuming. I always wash the canned goods to wash off excess sodium.

6.  Open a can of yellow corn kernels.

7. Now add some reduced fat sharp cheddar.

8. Lastly, add the protein. If you would like a vegetarian option, use Lightlife Smart Ground Mexican Style Seasoned Veggie Protein Crumbles. They're a delicious alternative to using ground beef.

9. Now add a ripe hass avocado.

10. You can mix all your ingredients in the bowl or serve the ingredients side by side over the spinach.

11. Finally, you can have each guest serve themselves in their bowls. Optional ingredients that guests can choose to add can include tortilla chips, salsa and low-fat greek yogurt (as a healthier alternative to sour cream).

Are you a fan of taco salads? Is there anything you like to add to your salads that's not included in this recipe? Let me know in the comment section below.
