What is your favorite comfortable thing to wear besides yoga pants and tanks? Mine has to be my maxi skirts! I cannot seem to get enough of them, and they come in the most amazing designs nowadays. I love pairing them with the short cropped tanks, and love the jersey knit fabric that a lot of them come in. I feel when I’m done with my workouts and head home, that’s the first thing I want to put on. They are seriously adorable with any denim jacket. I have bought so many this year, that I have lost count. I’m not sure what it is about the jersey fabric, but anything that I buy made of that sort of fabric just seems to suit my days running around, being comfortable, and to top it off they are easy to move in. I think they may have taken the place of the “sweats” era. They are definitely better looking than sweats, don’t you think? Send your pics with your favorite maxi dress and tell us where you bought it, and we would love to post to Fit and Bliss!
We all love lip color, and having a pop of color on your lips just seems to make everything great! Well, I’m sure you have heard of Kat Von D. and her products, which are amazing. The woman just has a gift of making makeup look phenomenal. I recently tried her lip colors and I can’t rave enough about them. You seriously sit in front of all the lip colors she makes, and it really is tempting to just buy them all up! I did not see one color I didn’t like. They are creamy and the colors are sharp. The one thing that is a big pet peeve of mine is buying a product that you truly think you are going to love, and once you get it home and get it on, it is so not what you thought it was. I can’t tell you how many times that has happened to me. I try to test every single color with a Q-tip before buying. Kat Von D. makes some serious lip color that is true to the color it claims, and goes on smooth and stays on forever. After trying her products, I will be buying her lip color for a long time. Check out her website for great ways to get the best of your looks at http://www.katvondbeauty.com. And shop at http://www.sephora.com!
My color of the week: Fuscia! Don’t you love this color? It reminds me of all the times I’ve been to the Dominican, because each time I’ve been there, this color is on my toes, and it’s a sweet memory. Essie Bermuda Shorts is my favorite, and it’s a gorgeous color for the summer. Pair it with a super cute bikini, and you are on your way to paradise! Essie never fails!
Happy Wednesday! I’m halfway through this amazing week and ready for a great fun weekend! You know that I do not like? The word “diet.” I say “healthy lifestyle” instead.
My way of living revolves pretty much around the Mediterranean Diet. I absolutely love olive oil and I use it for a lot of my cooking. I use coconut oil too, but a really good pressed olive oil has so many benefits. The focus of consumption is on plenty of fruit, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes.
I really don’t eat much grains, but the good kind has plenty of fiber. If you’re interested in following the Mediterranean way of eating, start by eating mostly plant based foods, add in lots of flavoring herbs, and use less salt. Olive oil and avocados are the good healthy fats. I love the concept because the Mediterranean way of living isn’t just about the food you eat, but how you eat. Eating a good healthy meal with your family and appreciating it is such an important concept, especially for your children.
The Mediterranean way is also about exercising every day, so walking, yoga and meditation are great. It’s very hard to try every night to change eating habits, but small changes daily will help you get there. I’ll be posting some great Mediterranean meals on my blog this week! The plus to the Mediterranean diet is that allows you to enjoy red wine! So for all you red wine lovers out there, like me… Mediterranean is the diet for a healthy life!
