Weekend Recap

Hi Fashionistas!

First let me say sorry there was no post yesterday. I have been doing the most. Which means I have not been planning my time as well as I should be. To keep it really real, I have been watching Power in my spare time and I’ve been sucked in! No excuse, but I’m here now!

This weekend I had a blast! I went to a friend’s wedding and after a few of us went to the Baltimore Harbor and  hung out. I’m excited to share the day with you, I never take photos when I am out, typically I like to spend time with the people around me, but since I did this time I wanted to share them with you. img_0183-1img_0184img_0178img_0182-1img_0154

Summer 2017 Reading List

Hi Friends,

Happy official first day of summer! Hopefully that means life is going to slow down enough for you to stop and smell the roses or at least read a good book 🙂 I have been getting back in to reading lately and I have been loving it. A fashion blogger I follow always gives the best book reviews and each time she provides amazing books that I always love. I enjoy thrillers… one of my favorite books is Gone Girl, and I have a few book reviews I plan do in the near future. Until I get that together here are books I am looking forward to getting my eyeballs on 🙂 Happy reading!

 

Girl in the Dark by Marion Pauw

The Obsession by Nora Roberts

All by Myself Alone by Mary Higgins Clark

My Husband’s Wife by Jane Corry

Into the Water by Paula Hawkins

All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda

What’s in My Gym Bag

Today I am giving you all quick fitness check in. I am happy to share, I am pleased with my progress. I have been working out consistently for about three weeks, which was a big goal for me… be consistent.  While preparing to go to the gym today, it hit me. Maybe you would like to see what I bring with me to the gym.

1. Work out clothes
On a normal day, I head to the gym straight from work. Which is why my gym clothes are in my bag 🙂 just in case you were wondering.

2. Headphones
I need my headphones in order to work out. I really have to emphasis this point. There have been times when I left my headphones home and would skip my workout because I wouldn’t be motivated to do much without music.

3. Micellar Water
I like to wipe off my face makeup just incase. I am crazy when it comes to keeping my skin in the best position possible. I say, better safe then sorry. Another easy option is makeup wipes.

4. Wet Wipes
People are gross, I like to have antibacterial wipes with me when things are not looking as clean as I think they should. At the gyms I go to, I have noticed they ran out of disinfectant spray. I went home that day, and put my wipes in my bag imminently.

5. Perfume
After a hard work out I still like to smell like a lady. So I spritz myself just a little to freshen up. My mom always tells me “you never know when you may run into someone.” Scentbird provides a great service, you can get a 30 day supply to try out before you make a big perfume purchase.

6. Water
We have to hydrate.

Spring To-Do List

IMG_3789

  1. Go on a road tip- As long as I am not the one driving, this is the best thing to do on a nice warm day. It is the best when you hop in the car and drive to a place you haven’t been before and spend the day exploring.
  2. Start gardening- I have to admit I don’t have a green thumb and don’t have much interest in planting, on the other hand things look so much better when you plant some pretty flowers in you front yard. I did this for the first time in the fall and loved the way the yard looked.
  3. Ride my bike- Let me ask you, as an adult have you been on a bike ride? If you haven’t it is one of my favorite things to do. The weather has to be just right, if you take a leasure ride with amazing scenery you will love it too!
  4. Run 3 miles in 30 minutes- This is a new goal I have set for myself. I am not the best long distance runner, but there is nothing wrong with striving to be better. I love to work out and challenge myself. I will keep you posted and let you know if I ever succeed.
  5. Stop and smell the roses- I tend to run myself very thin. This spring I want to take more time for myself and relax more.

Becoming Minimalism

Minimalism

So I have a lot of stuff! There is nothing wrong with having things that bring joy to your life. At some point when you look around your space and become overwhelmed with the amount of crap round that serves no purpose and is never used, such a waste of space.

Of course, I watched a documentary that solidified my idea of becoming a minimalist. One thing I am so interested in is a capsule wardrobe. For those ladies who can look so chic in 30 articles of clothing, my hat goes off to them. The creativity it takes to not look the same every day. I have been spending so many (way to much) hours on Pinterest looking at women who have a capsule wardrobe. I am so interested in adopting this in my lifestyle. We shall see how it turns out, sometimes I just need a change!

I am here to tell you, I want to be a minimalist… I know it takes baby steps. Here are a few images that has been inspiring me on this journey.

Five Year Dating

Good Morning Love Bugs,

Today is my five year dating anniversary with my husband Frank! It is so crazy when I saw that it was five years today, I was shocked that it has been that long, three years sounds more accurate. I guess time really does fly when you are having fun. I can’t believe this summer we would have been married for two year. Goodness!

In honor of our anniversary, I will give you all a fun fact about us. We actually, met on the very first day of undergrad. At our school on move in day, they have a Freshman Welcome Party… there is where we met.

I hope you all have a great day today 🙂
