The Fabulous Fabletics

I have to say that as much as I buy workout clothes, which seems weekly, I cant get enough of the bright , crazy colored capris, that can be paired with a super cute yoga camisole. I am a “Lululemon” lover, and I cant seem to get enough of their inventory. Weekly I am on there looking at what the new and amazing items are coming out. I feel which as much as I love working out, unless I am going to an appointment, or another duty, I live in workout clothes. I am so thankful they have come a long way in making them stylish. I remember the days , of course years ago, when you would put on a pair of sweats to go to the gym in. I’m so thankful that it’s not like that anymore. I will forever praise lululemon, as it’s my all time favorite, but I recently tried out the wonderful website , www.fabletics.com, and I can’t praise these adorable ensembles enough. They are the best company to deal with, and I love their pieces. The co-founder of fabletics is Kate Hudson, and she has personally picked out some of her favorite picks on the website. You can get on their website ,and take their lifestyle quiz which will give you insight on which clothes would work best with the lifestyle that you lead, and the types of classes that you take, whether its running, yoga, pilates, or which ever you take. They will give you the clothes choices to that specific workout. It’s truly an amazing concept, and it’s great you can go on the website, and they will personally guide you to what you need to look at if you are unsure on what you are needing. fableticswww.fabletics.com

The best part about this amazing website , Is for your first order you can get a full outfit for 25.00, which is a steal.

Hey Ladies!

Hope your all having a glorious Sunday. I Know summer just happened, but it seems the rate it is flying by,Fall will shortly be here. As much as I love Summer, I absolutely look forward to Fall , because it is my favorite time of the year. Chilly mornings, the beautiful leaves, bonfires with smores, and of course Football season. I absolutely love also Fall clothing. The scarves, boots, sweater, and super cute jackets you can wear on those chilly evenings. I have been looking at all the great pieces coming out for Fall, and I am loving them. One big item you will see in stores for the Fall are stripes. You will see striped sweaters with pops of colors in them, as well as striped skirts to be pieced with a solid color top. I am even seeing striped socks for the tween ages, and they are super cute. These stripes can be matched with some skinny jeans and a great scarf , and you are good to go. One thing that I am not a fan of, is striped jeans,( which I’ve seen a few times.) I think these can be quite flashy in terms of pairing it with the right sweater or top. Stripes on the bottom can be tricky when putting together a great ensemble, and I particularly am not a huge fan of them. They do look cute on  the teenage girls that I see wearing them. H&M has some super cute striped sweaters , along with some great striped skirts as well. You , of course do not match stripes , because that can be a bit blurred if you know what I mean. Stripes always go well with a solid color. A black and white striped skirt, matched with a solid pink tank would be cute .zara has some cute striped tops , as well as some striped scarves also.  The  stripes will be huge this fall. IT’s important to not put stripes with stripes, unless its one full outfit, like a skirt, and a tank that is one outfit. Do you have a great outfit that incorporates stripes?  Share it with us.

Need an instant skin Fix? Try these!

Hi Beauties!

We all have those days when we haven’t got enough sleep, haven’t drank enough water, felt like we have been going so hard , that we’ve hardly given our bodies rest, let alone our faces & necks a little TLC. Well I have some great products that instantly can fix those dilemmas in no time. Whether you have tired eyes, enlarged pores, or a bit of crows feet, there are always ways to make them better, and these products are simageure to do it. As we age, our pores start to enlarge if we aren’t taking proper care of our skin. We lose collagen as we age, which means our skin loses elasticity also , and we can end up with deep wrinkles, and that extra neck we do not want. It’s easy to call a doctor to fix all of that, but with these great products, it’s an instant fix to the problem you may be having..

Yves st. Laurent touché éclat – this perfector is perfect for reducing your pore size. It is a balm that diffuses light to reduce those pores. You want to apply this blur perfector with a sponge to blend well.

– Patchology flash patch eye gels– these eye gels are loaded with moisture, caffeine, and collagen which instantly transform your eyes and make you look wide awake.

Roloxin lift– my all time favorite simply because it’s gold in a package. This comes in a pack of 10, and smooths wrinkles, and instantly gives your skin firmness. It’s pricey, but you get 10 in a pack. It needs to be left on for 10 minutes.

Well there are three amazing products to give your face a fix when it needs it. It’s hard to make sure you take proper care of your skin daily with getting side tracked with other things, but always make sure to wear your sunscreen and wash your face each night.

ALL NATURAL GRANOLA

I’m sure all of you have tried at one point in time, the fat filled granola mixes at the store, that over and over claim how healthy they are. I’m sure there are healthier ones out there, more than others, but you are not going to get a more healthier granola mix, then in your own kitchen. I have stopped buying those mixes for a while now, because I make my own ,and it is delicious. Here is a special recipe, loaded with better nutritional value, than you would find in the store. When making this granola, it’s best to use All-natural cut oats, such as quaker oats, because the nutrition is way healthier. This recipe is super easy, and a great way to spice up your yogurt.

-4 cups all natural oats

-1 tbsp. cinnamon

-1 cup raw nuts/ seeds

-1 cup coconut

-1 pinch of salt

-1 1/2 tsp. vanilla flavor

-1/4 cup sweet brown sugar

-1/4 cup melted organic coconut oil

You will combine all these ingredients on a tray, and Bake at 350 degrees, ( approx. 30 min). This is a super great all natural recipe, and a great delight for the kids. oats

What Keeps you motivated for fitness?

Happy Saturday!

Isn’t it crazy how much you see in the commercials, social media, magazines, ect. on ways to  get fit? You have every class offered under the sun, and to that note, all kinds of crazy products being sold to help your fitness journey along. It takes something different for each and every one of us to feel motivated to get our butts moving on a daily basis. There are some days I’m sure, like all of us, where we feel like just taking breaks, and then that puts us into a rut. I’ve seen it happen all too much. If you take one day off, then it turns into a two days, and then you find yourself at the end of the week realizing, “Hey! I haven’t worked out in a week, and its so easy to get caught in that bind.

Here are some great ways for motivation for fitness

– What does your playlist look like? Is it crazy music that really doesn’t get you  fired up, or feeling energized? Believe me when I say this. I love tons of different kinds of music, but I have One playlist just for my workouts, and running regimans. You will not find indie music on my playlist, even though I love it. That’s for a different time and place. Get a great playlist downloaded.

-Do you feel like you are constantly trying to fit in your workouts, and sure enough as soon as you want to go to the gym, something comes up? If so.. Try to pre plan your schedule. Look at the times offered for your favorite class, and make sure you allow yourself that one hour to attend it.

– Are you a fly by the seat of your pants kind of an eater? I’ll tell you that if you don’t have your pantry and refrigerator cleaned out , you WILL eat those snacks and preservative filled food. make sure you have enough fresh fruits and vegetables cut up, and  on hand for those snacks. If you are eating well, and you eat one bad meal, or snack, you just fell off the horse. It keeps you motivated to eat well, and journaling is the best plan for this. Keep track daily of your food intake and what you ate.

-Set goals for yourself. if you even just want to lose 5 lbs, then set a goal of how you manage to get there. Just cutting anything out of your diet that is white, is progression.

-Make it fun. Do not go take a class that you know burns five hundred calories, just because. Do it for yourself. If that fun to you is running, set up a running schedule. Physical activity in your daily life is important, and it should be fun , always. I get out everyday and throw the football with my son, or play basketball with my daughter, or we go for bike rides. It should always be fun. If you are having fun with what your doing, physical wise, you will only be motivated to keep doing it.
