What I’m Loving Lately IV

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.

Good morning! Happy Tuesday!

Here’s the next edition of What I’m Loving Lately!

Murphy’s dog bed

This dog bed is some of the best money we have ever spent. Our pug fur problems are far from solved, but containing it in a smaller space is definitely making a difference with the cleanliness of our couch!

Vacuum Seal Storage Bags

I still can’t believe we own these. I dunno, I guess I always relate them to late-night infomercials. Haha!

Mal suggested getting some Vacuum Seal Storage Bags to give us some more storage space in our basement. Truthfully, at first, I sort of laughed his suggestion (infomercials came to mind), but these bags have been awesome for storing items that we aren’t currently using. They’re super easy to use, and they really cut down on the amount of space you need!

These 100-Year-Old BFFs Talking About Pop Culture 

Oh my gosh, this video made me so happy! It’s definitely worth a watch if you need a good laugh!

Trader Joe’s Mango Sorbet

Ever since I worked with the National Mango Board, I’ve really been digging the fruit. In smoothies and yogurt, straight up fresh, and now in sorbet form. I stumbled upon Trader Joe’s Mango Sorbet when I was there the other day, and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since. It’s the perfect post-dinner treat (with chocolate sprinkles, of course)!

Basket-O-Winter Gear

I bought a big basket at Marshalls the other day for our winter gear, and it’s been the best thing ever””no more random hats, gloves, and scarves all over the house! I also love it because it’s right near the front door, so you can just grab and go or drop off items when you’re done with them. And, the best part: you’re never wasting time, wandering around the house for what you need, when you just want to take the dog for a walk.

Old Navy’s Maternity Line

I know, I know”¦ I’ve written about my love for Old Navy’s Maternity line a number of times now, but I’m really loving it lately. Old Navy had a huge sale last week, and I totally stocked up on new clothes, including a bunch of fun pieces that I bought for our babymoon.

What I bought/favorites:

And, amazingly, I purchased everything online and it ALL fit! I’m always shocked when this happens and pleasantly surprised that I don’t have to make any returns!

If you’re pregnant and none of your clothes fit, I highly recommend checking out Old Navy. I’ve been really happy with what I’ve found there… styles, price, everything!


Potato and Chorizo Dobladas

I made these for dinner the other night, and I forgot how delicious and easy they are to make. I will definitely keep these in our regular dinner rotation!

Question of the Day

What are you loving lately?



  1. I am loving hot yoga. Warm Hawaiian mornings and gazing upon the whales that are migrating. I’m loving checking out the Bishop Museum in Honolulu for a little history action, and I’m loving that YOU love mangos! We have a tree in back of our house, and I can’t wait for it to be in bloom again;)! YUM. Try Trader Joe’s Just Mango slices in the dried fruit section, best dried mango EVER.

  2. Hi Tina!

    Love following your blog especially your pregnancy updates! I am due June 25th and we look to be about the same size, any recommendations for what size to order at old navy? I know in the past before I was pregnant the clothes tended to run really big. Thanks in advance for your help and big congrats on your pregnancy!
