I recently did a post on a great Fall look that I absolutely love. One of my favorite colors is Mustard Yellow, and this sweater is a great price at only $39. I actually received the sweater and was thinking of buying another one in a different color because I loved it so much. The boots are by Marc Fisher, and they are gorgeous. These boots are my go to boots for a lot of my fall looks. They are perfect because they are Over the Knee Boots, which are super popular right now. These boots will go with just about anything. I love the neutral color of them because they look great with all fall colors. Nordstroms has alot of great fall sweaters to choose from, and they have the most gorgeous colors. A great way to throw together some fall looks is to have a great pair of boots and a few great jackets, and you can mix and match your tops in a variety of colors with different jeans and skirts. Happy Fall Shopping!
I wanted to do a post on a great little gift that is perfect for anyone. Its the Bless Box. This is my second month of receiving this cute little box full of amazing things that I promise you will love. Each month this box gets delivered, its full of surprises. Each month the box is filled with different things that range from health products to beauty products, to even jewelry. The last two boxes that I have received, I have fell in love with. This is perfect as a gift also. Its up to you to decide how much you want to spend a month, and the products in the box are never the same. I recently started getting one delivered for my daughter. I cant get over all the cute necessities that I have fallen in love with since getting this. Another idea is if you get the box, you can take some of the items out and give as stocking stuffers. you may get a few samples thrown in there as well. I love mine, and I’m sure you will love yours too. This is my recent Bless Box that I received. Check out the goodies! .You will see many amazing treats such as the Maybelline eye pallets, the cute little sleep mask for the eyes, and the amazing Thanksgiving cards. The Bless Box is the perfect ending to any day!
Journaling has become so popular these days, due to the fact that it helps improve your life in a variety of ways. It brings peace and much more. It gives us an awareness on what kind of life we want to create or the goals that we want to achieve. I have many friends who keep journals for their fitness routines. They log in what they ate, the calories, and the kind of workouts they do. They write down the feelings they felt after the workout and it really does improve your quality of life in that retrospect. Journaling is also calming and relaxing. I do it to remember special moments, or amazing trips that I go on. I then can reflect back on those memories along with the pictures I attach with it. Journaling is healthy for the mind and spirit. It gives you a great connection between your mind and wonderous thoughts. If you are on a vacation, and see something amazing or a special moment that made you feel great, journaling is a special moment that you can always go back on and read about. It grounds the mind in many ways, and brings out your nurturing creativity. It can be used not only for diet, exercise, and travel, but special moments as your kids get older. The memories that you shared with them. If you are having certain issues in your life, it may be good for you to write them down on paper. It helps the mind grow, and can bring a whole new transformation to your life. Its healthy and fun, and I encourage everyone to pick an amazing journal that is pretty cool to you and start writing. They have super cool ones that have beautiful pictures on them. Get writing!
Motivation when it comes to fitness can be hard at times. We can lose track when we get busy, when we juggle many things, like family and a career. Fitness needs to be important in your life because how good are we when we really aren’t taking care of ourselves. We are better mothers, friends, our moods are better, and we feel better overall. I have some amazing motivational tips that will keep you wanting to move everyday.
– If you fall off the bandwagon, get right back on. It doesn’t matter if you have to start over. Another day is a new start.
-Buy some amazing workout clothes that are comfortable.Nothing is worse than having a workout ruined because of a poor wardrobe choice,and and it starts with a base layer They are super comfortable and are made well. These clothes are like no other.
-Always keep clean ,healthy snacks on hand. We can often find ourselves driving through a fast food joint when we are in a hurry, and have the kids in the back. Keep some healthy snacks on hand like almonds, bananas, and good protein bars.
-keep a journal. I cant tell you how amazing it is to keep a journal of how you feel during and after your workouts. It keeps you motivated for more.
-Make you time for fitness. Cut out a small portion of your day to get to the gym or your favorite class. You are only keeping yourself healthy on the inside and outside. Do your body good!
