4 Ways to Style Up Your Summer

Hi beauties!

I wanted to share with you four great ways to style up your summer. These are some of my favorite things:

1. Pale pink nails. I love the blush color in everything from dresses to nails. It is gorgeous because it’s so simple and elegant.

2. Tory Burch wedges. Who doesn’t love Tory’s signature color, orange? It is gorgeous, and the wedges are to die for. Wedges show off killer legs. There is no reason not to show them off.

3. I have bought so many delicate gold chains this summer. One word: Beautiful!

4. White romper. White is clean and streamlined, especially in the summer when most people have color. I am just loving them.

Why I Love Transcendental Meditation

Hi beauties!

I’m sure you know that living in today’s world is so chaotic and full of craziness. It seems like everyone is flying from one place to another, getting their kids to their events and obligations, and not to mention the craziness of just keeping your family together and getting dinners made. The people that work full time jobs, then come home to do their second jobs, you all are so admirable.

I stumbled across Transcendental Meditation about six months ago when a friend told me that she uses it for relaxation techniques. Wow. Am I glad that I had this talk with her. I am a huge yoga advocate and it’s amazing for what it does for your body. I love the feeling of going to a hot yoga class, and the effects it has on your body and mind are tremendous. Transcendental Meditation has given my mind a peaceful and calm awareness, and I rarely think of anything other than the moment I’m in, and that’s very rare for me, as I’m a planner. It’s okay to plan things, but thinking about the future or worrying about things in the future does nothing for your mind and spirit, and can bring so much anxiety and worry for what? Nothing!

Meditation can make your life so much more enjoyable and less stressed; more balanced. Even if it’s just for ten minutes a day. Ten minutes can do wonders. When you are driving in your car, painting, writing, taking a relaxing bath, is when transcendental meditation apps come in handy. I love them, and I listen to at least one a day. I can’t tell you how amazing they are, and what calm it brings into your space. Transcendental Meditation is known also to relieve stress, anxiety, mood disorders, and any of you who have trouble sleeping, it’s great for insomnia.

I wanted to share with you my five favorite transcendental apps, and I hope you download at least one, and let me know how they have helped you. I just feel so relaxed after listening to them, and I’m sure you will too!

1. Insight Timer. This app is completely free, and wonderful.

2. Transcendental Timer. With this app, you can create your own meditation.

3. White Noise Pro. Do you have problems sleeping? I think this app is great for that.

4. Meditate and Visualize.

5. Guided Meditation Techniques

I hope you all try some of these! They will add so much relaxation and positive energy to your life! 💕


VINCE Clothing Rocks!

Hi beauties!

I absolutely love fashion, and one brand that’s at the top of my list is VINCE! If you are looking for that comfortable feel with an edge, this is the brand for you. One item that I am loving is their light cardigans. Even though it’s summer time, everyone needs a cardigan for nights out right? They carry an array of lightweight t-shirts, v-necks, and so much more. They are so comfortable that you could seriously wear their clothes to bed. Not only do they carry women’s clothes, the men’s line is sharp and streamlined. I’m so excited for the VINCE 2015 Winter Line to come out to check out their coats! I’m a lover of neutral colors simply because of the versatility. If you are on the lookout for some comfort in your wardrobe, VINCE is where you need to look. VINCE clothing is sold in many upscale department stores including Nordstroms, my favorite. I love fashion, but it’s great to have those comfortable days too when you just need the perfect lightweight top to go with those great jeans you have. Do you have a favorite VINCE piece you want to show off? Send to Fit and Bliss!

Traveling?? Find that Gym

Hi ladies!

There’s no other way to wake up then to sunshine in Chicago! Do you ever feel stressed when you leave town and feel like you’re going to miss out on your workout, or get behind on the fitness routine you just started? No matter where you are, or what city your in, there will be gyms or studios that you can grab a class at. If you are an avid runner, you can grab your shoes and go hit the streets for a good run. Take advantage of the hotel your at. Many times they offer morning yoga classes. There is no reason you cannot get that exercise in and start feeling rejuvenated on vacation. I hear people say, “Well, I’m on vacation, and it wouldn’t be a vacation if I was working out.” I do not believe that. If exercise is part of your lifestyle and living, then yes you need to work out. The last thing you want to do is get home and feel terrible or put on a few pounds simply because you didn’t workout. The smallest amounts of exercise helps. Walking everywhere instead of taking a cab, or getting up first thing and running, or even hitting the pool if you are a swimmer. We need to be moving our bodies  and getting our heart rates up. Vacations are just a plus. Live it up, and get in the best shape of your life!
