Although I’m generally a happy person 90% of the time (I’m all for choosing happiness,) there are those moments when things get a little overwhelming! I’ve always been great at multitasking but even I can get frustrated when it seems like everything is pilling up. Between work, blogging and freelance writing on the side, sometimes (most of the time) my deadlines all end up being the exact same time. Although it can get a little chaotic (no complaints here) sometimes, what helps me get through it all is my desk! My desk is basically my safe haven. It’s where I get about 75% of my work done. I love decorating it according to the season (this month I have a Hello Kitty Easter Basket to represent Easter & Spring) and seeing all my little toys and knick knacks on it as I do my work. My desk always makes my smile and it really helps me get through tough assignments. Last week, unfortunately, my desk was such a mess that I couldn’t get anything done! I had four deadlines to meet on Monday and I was stressing out big time! I don’t know about you but nothing helps me get out of a funk like chocolate!

New Snickers flavors at Walgreens
I literally live right next door to Walgreens (it’s actually about a five minute walk) so I headed over to find a few SNICKERS® bars to help satisfy my cravings. One of the reasons I prefer Walgreens to other drug stores (besides the fact it was founded in Chicago) is because of it’s amazing organization! I was immediately able to find my favorite SNICKERS® bars (SNICKERS® Extreme, Peanut Butter Squares and SNICKERS® Almond) in the candy aisle. Snicker Almond at Walgreens
I seriously lucked out because they happened to be on sale for 2 for $3 (can’t bet that price) that day! After dilly-dallying in the Easter section for longer than I’d like to admit, I finally headed back home so I could get back to work!Fun and creative office desks
SNICKERS® always leave me feeling energized (and satisfied!) I was finally able to get my desk back in order, schedule my weekly work tasks, send off my freelance articles and complete my blog editorial calendar for the week (thanks SNICKERS®!)Snickers Xtreme at Walgreens
I absolutely LOVE these three SNICKERS® flavors! Although I’m a huge fan of any kind of peanut butter candy combination, I’ve got to say that the SNICKERS® Almond bars are my FAVORITENew Snickers flavors
