What I Want Now

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Do you read Lucky magazine? If you do, I’m sure you’ve seen their feature called “What I Want Now.” If you don’t read Lucky, this feature shares one their fashion editor’s top picks and must-haves for the season.


Generally, I have no clue what I am talking about when it comes to fashion (as seen in this post), but, in the past couple of weeks, I’ve stumbled upon a bunch of really neat items (not fashion-related) that I thought you guys might enjoy too, so here’s my own What I Want Now!

Lilly Pulitzer Rousseau Ottoman


It’s almost time for a little spring cleaning, and what better way to keep your chic sandals and wedges organized and off your closet floor than Lilly Pulitzer Home’s Rousseau ‘shoe pouf’ ottoman!

Stow-N-Go Sports Bra


Since the beginning of time, women have stashed goods in their bras. Money, grocery lists, phone numbers – you name it, it’s been stashed. Now you can do it legitimately on long runs with this new sports bra thanks to a double-layer chest pocket at interior center-front panel. Ideal for fuel/storage needs on long runs, this extra pocket provides easy on-the-go access for ladies with an A/B cup fit.

A Place of Yes


Bethenny Frankel’s no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is personality won over countless fans, and made her a nationally bestselling author and the star of her own hit Bravo show Bethenny Getting Married? Now Bethenny opens up and shares the obstacles she overcame and the great success she has enjoyed while discovering how to approach life from “A Place of Yes.” Bethenny’s path was not always clear as she overcame a difficult childhood, failed relationships, entrepreneurial efforts that never quite got off the ground, and lifelong money struggles.



Desk-it is a post-it note for your desk. You can write down your to-dos for the day, week, and then stick it on your wall or your computer to remind yourself. Once you’re done, you can take it off with a feeling of accomplishment. Comes in 2 styles of graph or weekly calendar.

Bondi Band


Bondi bands are a comfy, colorful and creative way to hold your hair back whether you’re riding in a convertible, rushing out the door to get your kids, or getting some exercise. Bondi Bands are an easy fix for your hair. They absorb and evaporate buckets of sweat.

What do you want now?



  1. The Desk-it is briliant! I want one of those now for sure.

    I also really want something to keep my boots upright…a boot tree? I can’t seem to find them at Target or at any shoe store but I do know they exist. Somewhere.

  2. Well-after reading this post I want that sports bra, a Bondi band, Bethenny’s book, and the Desk It. The ottoman is a cool idea too, but I’m not at a place in life to be buying nice furniture yet! lol. The biggest thing on my want list right now is the Garmin Forerunner 405. As of today I have saved half of the cost! 🙂

  3. That ottoman is so smart! Too bad my closet isn’t even big enough for me to stand in it! I would worry I’d forget about the shoes in there though… out of sight, out of mind, you know?

    I really want A Place of Yes. I love Bethenny, and I admire her for overcoming, and getting what she wants! I kind of want the audiobook so i can listen during my runs, but I think I would benefit more from the hardcopy so I can go back for reference more easily!

  4. Whoa….LOVE that ottoman. I’m a huge Lilly Pulitzer fan. Right now, I want more lulu lemon gear and your book (seriously, I do, I’m not just saying that).

  5. I think we are reading the same magazines and wanting the same things! I saw that ottoman and sports bra and thought those were the smartest ideas ever. Right now I’m also wanting to just go shopping in general. Warm weather seems to do that to me, I want clothes, I want to decorate the house, I want, I want, I want! 🙂

  6. Those desk-its are so, so cool! I need them! And I cannot wait to read Bethanny’s book! And the one for Tina Fey now that I just finished your book 🙂

  7. I love Lucky What I want now pages! And that sports bra is so handy, I’m always struggling where to put my keys when I go running.

  8. Does that ottoman hold shoes? Genius?

    What about us larger chested girls? We can’t carry stuff in our bras too? Oh well, I’ll try squeeze myself into it just to get the cool pocket.

  9. ohh i want that desk it so bad! those bondi bands are super cute too! lucky magazine kills me..i try not to buy it because i should not be shopping! its a bad influence! haha

  10. OMG! I *NEED* that sports bra. I am forever shoving things into mine and A) it’s not good for the bra, B) sometimes it hurts, and C) I look like a doofus! Clicking over now 😉

  11. I have to wear 2 sports bras when I run, which means I have an automatic stow and go! Winner.

    I really want a tropical vacation. Planning my honeymoon for next September is making me yearn to get away now!

  12. Oh Gosh,
    I want a Paul Frank Beach Cruiser and an iPad. A new outfit and my car detailed. Makes me smile just thinking about them!

  13. I seriously want a KitchenAid standing mixer. I’ve wanted one since I was 10 years old. I’ve been hinting about it though, so maybe I’ll get it for my 15th birthday?

  14. The “Lilly Pulitzer Rousseau Ottoman” is so freaking cute and practical! Like others above I am famous for shoving all sorts of things is my bra! Right now I want some new Nike shoes and some dumbbells for my house! 🙂

  15. I’d love to see more content like this on your blog 🙂 I love reading blogs that are a great mix of fitness, fashion & lifestyle like yours!

  16. This is a great post! I would love that sport’s bra for sure!

    I also want a house, bright colored sports bras, another massage (just had one <—amazing!), subscriptions to more magazines, and more Zumba clothes! Random. yes 🙂

  17. I have that bond band, love it! It’s one of the only things that really keeps the hair off my face. I want a whole new wardrobe now. I’m greedy, I know!

  18. Great post idea Tina..you should do them more often. That ottoman is awesome.

    If you’re still looking for the perfect book signing outfit, try ann taylor loft. I was shopping there today and they have great sales and some super cute dresses and skirts.

  19. I’m really enjoying Place of Yes. I was actually thinking as I was watching the finale earlier that she should be invited to the Healthy Living Summit! What an AHMAZING guest speaker!

  20. Hi Tina! I love your blog and you are such an inspiration! I love Lucky! I am a teenage girl and have just started my own blog! If you get a chance to check it out, that would be wonderful and I would be so honored! Thank you for being an inspiration for me to start a blog! -Lauren

  21. I saw that Lilly Pulitzer ottoman! Totally on my want list, too! There’s currently a Lilly line at Barnes & Noble – bags and nook covers at least – that I saw this weekend when buying your book 🙂 . I almost traded in my Kate Spade nook cover for the Lilly one…almost 🙂
