{Pantry Organization by Maddie Butterfield}

Hello friends!

I had a special guest come and visit my new home last night. Any guess? 

Maddie is a wonderful, kind, and super talented lady. We have known each other since middle school, so it was nice to catch up and chat while she organized my pantry. 

Now, I mentioned that Maddie is talented. Well, she is talented in so many ways with one of them being organization and design. Before we get any further I want to tell you a little bit more about her and her company. 

Maddie is located in Indianapolis, Indiana. She has a blog that has some amazing DIY projects, recipes, organization tips, and so much more. 

She has a website if you want to read more from her: Maddie Butterfield

Here are some of the services she offers:

1) Redesign your Space
2) Personal Decor Shopping
3) Virtual Plan
4) Event Styling
5) Holiday Decorating Services

Organizational Services
3 different in home services
1) Premium Package
2) Gold Package
3) Done in a Day Package

Now let me show you the space she organized for me...

Many of you already know how much I love to cook, create recipes, meal prep, etc. so my pantry holds a special place in my heart. My fiancé and I just moved into our first home, so my pantry got pushed aside when I just wanted to put stuff away and out of boxes. Here is what my pantry looked like before:

As you can see, things were just pushed and crammed onto different shelves. I worked for Anthony's Goods to create different recipes, take product shots, and other things so I have many bags of their products. My top shelf was overwhelmed with bags and bags of Anthony's Goods. When Maddie arrived, she pulled everything out of my pantry so that she could sort, organized, and categorized my things. Here she is in action...

Of course Patch had to make a guest appearance and wanted Maddie to pay attention to him! Haha!

One thing I loved about Maddie organizing my space was that she asked me which products I used most. She really considered the functionality of a space and wants the flow to be just right. That is something I greatly appreciate because I don't want to have to dig for things that I use on a daily basis. 

Before Maddie came over, I stopped at Dollar Tree to pick up some bins and things for her to use. I think I spent $5 there and the bins and storage containers helped so much! Maddie was able to use them for different things. For example, she put all of my baking stuff in one container. In another smaller container she organized all of my tea bags. She really pays attention to detail. 

Do you see all of my Vital Protein goods and how she organized them by ROYGBIV? This was definitely both of our favorite shelf in the pantry. 

Here is a side by side photo so you can see how much more functional and organized the space is-

I am obsessed with my pantry now! I keep opening the door to see how beautiful it is. I can't wait to create some new recipes this weekend.

Southern Breeze Cold Brew Sweet Tea & Mocktail Recipe

Hello friends! 

I have a fun new product to share with you: 

I also created a delicious Iced Tea Recipe below. 

Here is my opinion-

I love that Souther Breeze Cold Brew is so easy to make. I enjoy tea and actually prefer tea when it is cold. This cold brew tea is handy because you don't have to heat water to make it. I actually love all four of the flavors, but if I had to choose a favorite flavor it would be the Raspberry Cold Brew Sweet Tea. I do not like to drink my calories, so I appreciate that this is a calorie free option. My second favorite flavor is the Half and Half Cold Brew Sweet Tea, followed by the Peach Cold Brew Sweet Tea, and lastly the Original Cold Brew Sweet Tea. 

My two favorite times to drink this tea is on my way to work in the morning or after dinner. In the morning, our bodies need to be hydrated from sleeping all night. I always try to drink at least 32 oz of water on my way to work in the morning. Sometimes it is hard to drink just plain water, so I have found this tea helps me drink more water. After dinner, I love to have something sweet. My diet does not always allow me to have an actual dessert, so this sweet tea helps curbs my craving. 

-Southern Breeze is a calorie free & guilt free so you can enjoy glass after glass
-Cold Brew Southern Breeze is a single serving so you can take it with you or enjoy it at home

-Southern Breeze Cold Brew is so easy to make: simply pour 8 oz. of water over 1 tea bag and let it steep for 5 minutes. After steeping, toss out the tea bag and add ice!
-All of the zero calorie Southern Breeze Products are available here:
-If you would like to try some out for yourself, you can use the code "APRILSHIPFREE" for free shipping on your first order of Southern Breeze (valid until April 30th, 2018).

Some more information for you:

-Southern Breeze puts the sweetener in the tea bag & it has ZERO Calories. This allows consumers to enjoy the drink guilt free. I know many people who LOVE sweet tea! Every glass will taste Southern Sweet!

Let me try to answer some questions you may have:

1) Does this use real tea leaves? 

Yes, every single bad contains real tea leaves, not a powder or instant tea mixture. Southern Breeze Sweet Tea is made from real black tea leaves in a real tea bad so you can fresh brew your tea. What's so easy is that the sweetener is already in the tea bag. You can have fresh brewed sweet tea in minutes. 

2) Does Southern Breeze have any experience with tea?

Yes, Southern Breeze Sweet Tea comes from people who know a lot about sweet tea and even more about tea itself. What's inside the tea bags? It's a story, a journey about quality & taste, one that starts and ends with real black tea leaves. 

3) What sweetener is used in the tea bags?

Southern Breeze Sweet Tea is sweetened with Splenda Brand Sweetener. The ingredients for the Raspberry Cold Brew Sweet Tea are: real tea leaves, hibiscus, natural flavor, malic acid, sucralose. 

4) Does it contain caffeine?

Yes, Southern Breeze Sweet Tea does contain caffeine. All tea has a natural source of caffeine. It is about half of the caffeine that you would get from a cup of coffee. 

5) Where is the Southern Breeze Sweet Tea made?

Southern Breeze Sweet Tea is blended and pack in the heart of the Southern U.S. in Marietta, Georgia. 

6) Can I purchase Southern Breeze Sweet Tea in a store?

Yes, you can! Before you run to your nearest store, check out the Store Locator on this website:

You can also see which flavors are available at each store. 

7) Are there other recipes I can create with this sweet tea?

Yes, you can check out more delicious recipes here:

There are recipes such as a Pina Colada Sweet Tea Slush, Orange Cream Sweet Tea Float, & Mixed Berry Sweet Tea. 

8) Who can I contact?

If you need assistance about the products or company, you can email: or call 855-282-6186

Now for the Iced Tea Recipe:

Southern Breeze Zero Calorie Mocktails


8 oz. of water
1 Southern Breeze Raspberry Cold Brew Sweet Tea Bag
1 can of raspberry seltzer water
1 lemon sliced


Add the tea bag to the water.

Let it steep for 5 minutes.

Once 5 minutes are up, dip the tea bag in and out of the water so that the color and flavor disperse through the water. Discard the tea bag. 

Next, pour the tea into a larger glass mug, add the raspberry seltzer water & lemons. 

Stir the drink so that the flavors combine.

I hope you enjoy! 

Also, you all know I like to be honest with you. This post is a sponsored post. The information regarding the products came first hand from Southern Breeze Cold Brew Sweet Tea & their website. My personal opinions are my own and are honest and truthful. The tea bags were given to me by the company, but I would buy these myself if I can find them at a store near me.
