Fall Favs


I'm so ready for Fall y'all (ha, I rhyme).  I'm tired of sweating, mosquitoes, and having frizzy hair.  . I'm ready to straighten my hair,  wear scarfs, pants, and long sleeves. 
Here are a few of my Fall Favs....

What are some of your Fall must haves?


  • P.S.- Thanks to Pinterest for making collage construction so freaking easy :-)

{A little Motivation}

{found pic on Pinterest via fithiphealthy.com}
Hi dolls, hope that y'all had a great weekend!  I just wanted to send a little motivation your way.  I too need motivation because I've been slacking at the gym but tomorrow is the end of my "half-assed workouts"...For the past two weeks I've been on a "vacation" from the gym....my workouts have been short and have lacked motivation, but tomorrow is a new day!  I already have my gym bag packed and have loaded tons of new songs on to my iPod.

Fitness Inspiration

{pic: tumblr/fitspo}
The first thought that came to mind was, Holy Legs!  I'm so jealous #1 because this gal has amazing legs, #2 because I've always wanted to be a professional dancer (childhood dream). So You Think You Can Dance is my favorite show!!

"The optimist looks at the world through rose-tinted spectacles"

My friend Renee over at Lemon Chic Photography started  Project 52! You take one themed photo a week for 52 weeks.   This weeks theme is "Goggles/Glasses", I purchased these glasses at Forever21 months ago and have never worn them.  I'm not sure if i will ever wear them in public, but they make a good prop.  If you are interested in joining the group head over to Flickr  to check her out( click here if you want to hear more).



Drumroll, Please..................

Bowling Mania!

I went bowling Sunday and totally dominated the lane.  I woke up this morning with an achy right forearm, but i guess that's what happens when you roll so many strikes. 
I hope that none of the people that I went bowling with read this post because I'm sure they will beg to differ but I promise that i have above par bowling skills ( haters are gonna hate :-)



Here are some pics.......





me and Ang

me bowling another Strike!!!


they dared me to "plank"
I totally don't get the whole plankin' craze BUT I'm always up for a good dare :-)

Fancy Gym Attire #1

#1 Lace Sports Bra- Aerie
#2 Shoes- Nike
#3 Slim fit pants- Aerie
#4 Gym Bag- Kate Spade
#5 Shirt- Lulumon

All of these things are on my wish list (hint, hint).  I'm really diggin' the lace sports bra. It's a little riskay and that's the reason why I'm going to buy it today,lol.

High Five!


I know that the FiveFingers shoes are hideous BUT I've heard really great things about them.  I don't know how I feel about having something in between my toes but I'm willing to give them a try (don't laugh).  Hey Josh Duhamel wears them and he's cool, so why can't I? 
  Now the reason that I want them is because I heard that they are great for increasing lower leg strength. My Chicken legs could use a boost, especially my skinny calves.
If you are thinking about purchasing a pair you can buy them here.

5 Reasons to Wear Vibram FiveFingers:


1. Strengthens Muscles in the Feet and Lower Legs—Wearing Vibram FiveFingers will stimulate and strengthen muscles in the feet and lower legs, improving general foot health and reducing the risk of injury.



2. Improves Range of Motion in Ankles, Feet and Toes—No longer 'cast' in a shoe, the foot and toes move more naturally.



3. Stimulates Neural Function Important to Balance and Agility—When wearing Vibram FiveFingers, thousands of neurological receptors in the feet send valuable information to the brain, improving balance and agility.



4. Eliminate Heel Lift to Align the Spine and Improve Posture—By lowering the heel, your bodyweight becomes evenly distributed across the footbed, promoting proper posture and spinal alignment.



5. Allow the Foot and Body to Move Naturally—Which just FEELS GOOD.






                                    Would you be caught dead in these funky shoes?????????

Happy Monday!

After a LONG weekend of traveling, and then waiting in the airport all night , I am exhausted!!  I had a blast in NYC but I need sleep!!!...I've had 3 glasses of coffee, but I'm still struggling to stay awake.  I don't see how the locals in NYC manage to cope without sleep.

Sun-kissed Strands


I need this Rachel Roy dress!!!
I want to dye my hair this color super bad but CJ says that I will look like lil' kim if i do (not funny).  I think that I'm going to get a few highlights first before making such a drastic change. To dye or not to dye?  Speak up if you care lol.

Kitty Eyes..



{Instyle Makeover 2011}
  I love kitten liner!!!  I've been rocking it for years now so I'm happy that they are now considering it stylish  :) I started wearing it because I was obsessed with  Lauren Conrad (I was definitely an addict of  The Hills).  If you haven't already, I highly recommend that you buy Bobbi Brown's gel liner!


                                                            HAPPY  HUMP DAY!!!!!!

Cheers to the Freakin' Weekend!

Dear Friday, What took you so long to get here?


I'm so stoked because my college roommate and partner in crime is coming visit this weekend from Denver. I haven't seen her in over two years so it will be great to catch up with her.



Here are some pics of us from college:







What do you guys have planned for the weekend?

Hey Y'all!

Today is definitely one of those days (I need a bottle of Jack and a razor blade).  Have you ever had one of those days where everything and everyone irritates the mess out of you?   Funny thing is that you would never know that I wasn't having a good day because I try to compensate by being overly chipper...I know, I'm weird, but it usually helps me out of my funk (I let the cat out of the bag....it's no longer a secret lol).  I'm sure that I just need a good sleep or maybe a mini shopping spree. 


Well enough about my awesome day......Let's talk about my new tripod!!!!  I absolutely love not having to ask CJ to take my picture...he tries so hard to take great pictures but he just can't grasp it, bless him.




So I was reading the new InStyle Makeover  Edition today and they said that "60% of men perfer women with straight hair"...I wonder why that is?  Curly head girls can be just as cute!


outfit of the day!!!....
{shirt, skirt, and lepoard shoes are all from Forever21 (I think :-/)...I call this styling on a budget! haha}
