This arrangement is so creative. This probably wouldn't work for me because i have tons of clothes, but it is nice to look at.

scrumptious


Today after work I meet up with one of my best friends for drinks and frozen ice cream, I know that it's a weird combination but it was delicious! I wonder when my obesssion with Frozen Icecream is going to end.....In my mind I think that I can eat as much as I want because it's "fat-free". I'm sure that it will catch up with me sooner than later.
I made stuffed peppers for the first time tonight and BAM, they were finger-licking good! Here is the recipe if you want to make some of your own

Ingredients

4 bell peppers, any color
Salt
5 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, peeled and chopped
1 clove of garlic, peeled and chopped

My Weekend at a Glance!!



{The Girls, also known as "the candy shop"}



Saturday was Ladies Night Out and I had a blast. I sipped on a French 75 (my new favorite cocktail) the whole night. I've never really been a fan of Gin, but it rocked my world last night. It has been a while since I danced the night away with my girls, and I'm sure that I burned like a thousand calories or more.

I Would Love to Visit.....


Buenos Aires is the capital and largest city of Argentina. It is located on the southern shore of the Río de la Plata, on the southeastern coast of the South American continent
If I had the time and Money I would love to visit Buenos Aires. After reading about the city and viewing pictures, I instantly added it to the "places I want to visit" portion of my bucket list.
In terms of fitness, Football (futbol) and Tango are main attractions, and most of the town is accessible by foot or bicycle.

{La Playa}

{Avenido 9 de Julio, the worlds widest avenue}

I need to pull out my Rosetta Stone CD so that I can brush up on my Spanish. Do any of you dolls want to join me?

The Cat-Cow Stretch


I think that i lifted legs way too heavy yesterday because my lower back has been killing me all dang day. I ended up missing my deep stretch yoga class because 5 o'clock traffic was a mess so I created my own little yoga class at home. Bri dog joined me. My back feels way better.
The "pelvis-up" and "pelvis- down" movements look hella seductive but it's a wonderful stretch for your back.

Moral of the story......1) make sure that you are lifting weights with good posture 2) support your lower back, and 3) don't forget to stretch.

Beyonce "Let's Move" Campaign


I saw this the other day and thought that it was a pretty cool way to get kids up and moving. Beyonce and Michelle Obama started this campaign.

Bohemian Chic Home Decor




If you haven't noticed I am currently infatuated with ALL things Bohemian. The second picture is my all time favorite. Which room do you like best?

Boho-Chic Style



Currently I am OBSESSED with the boho look. I believe that I was a hippie (a clean hippie) in my past life because I'm so drawn to this look.



Vanessa Hudgens and Nicole Richie are my Boho Idols!

This style is perfect for me because I HATE clothes that are too snug ( well my skinny jeans are a little snug...). Overall I'm trying to find a balance between comfortable and chic. Plus, boho maxi dresses and skirts are so easy to throw on when showering/ dressing at the gym.

Hydrate Your Body!!!!!



According to Gregory Florez, CEO and founder of www.fitadvisor.com, "Seventy Percent of the population is dehydrated", you must get between 64-90 ounces of water a day!

Importance of water?

Regulates Body Temperature
Aids in digestion
Keeps skin looking young and healthy
Aids in the production of Saliva and blood

To help the earth purchase a water filter because it can take over a thousand years for one piece of plastic to decompose.

Weightloss: Raven Symone



I grew up watching the "Cosby Show" and Olivia (Raven Symone) was one of my favorite actors on the show. I don't necessarily like how dramatic she was on all the Disney shows (That's so Raven), but acting is acting and mama gotta make that money (all-right!).
I'm so impressed with the progress that she has made and she totally looks like a different person, actually she kind of looks like Nicole Richie in the picture below!
. According to magazines she dropped the weight by changing up her diet (changing her life style) and exercising. GO RAVEN!
