Getting in Shape: How to Motivate the Unmotivated

The past year has been extremely hard for me mentally and physically. I've been ALL over the place and my body has taken the brunt of the stress.

I've never been one to make excuses in the past with working out, but this year it seemed like I had one reason after the next on why I couldn't work out. It got so bad that I would eye-roll MYSELF when I would make another excuse! Everything going on was true; I've had a beyond tragic year so I was depressed which zapped my energy. Not to mention I hurt my back, got a hernia, no time, traveling, too busy...blah, blah, blah.....the list goes on and on. There were big feelings hiding behind these excuses. I was embarrassed, self-conscious and nervous about how soft and weak my body had become. But more than anything, I was feeling uncomfortable in my own body.... (click to continue)

Cabo: The Cape Hotel

Hotel Talk… First off, they nailed the entrance with this mega hipster permanent hashtag accompanied by a sick view. I (along with all guests checking-in) fell right into the trap and started taking pictures immediately. Within the first 5 minutes I can say The Cape Hotel had lured me in. Upon arrival to our hotel room we were warmly greeted with complementary chocolate and bottle of tequila. Now I am putty...

Swimsuit, Sandals & Sunshine

My bags are packed, I’m ready to go! Just kidding, I have two more weeks until I head to Meh-he-co! Ay Aye Ayeee!! I’m here to help you shop for your spring break trip or upcoming vacation. The beauty about vacations is that time doesn’t matter and you can just hop around all day from beach to shopping, from happy hour to late night dinner and drinks. I love going on vacations...

Forever Dating

Life has a funny way of making you think ‘once you got what you want’ things will all be smooth sailing, right? What I have learned is that nothing is ever smooth sailing, it just depends who you are on the boat with. I find that all relationships take effort, obviously. As time goes on and life gets more complex we are all pulled in so many different directions. We all...

Hells Bells

Bell sleeves are everywhere and I am LOVING IT! (Imagine that in Oprah’s voice) Something about walking with these fun sleeves make you feel like some sort of whimsical goddess. They just blow ever so slightly in the breeze as you stroll around. Right when you feel your inner goddess flourishing you are brought back down to reality as you reach for the guac and dip that beautiful sleeve right...

Bring on the Cake

Happy Birthday to me!!!! Ok that’s enough celebrating. These days my idea of a great birthday is relaxation, family, friends, and cake. Oh yeah, wine, don’t forget the wine. This year I am headed to the beautiful Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa to use every amenity at their spa, bar, and unbelievable restaurant. I seriously can’t wait to give you the scoop on all of the wonderful things there! This has...

Lighter Shade of Brown

Brown, beige, tan, camel, caramel, coffee, chocolate, chestnut, rust, cinnamon..whatever you want to call it. I love mixing shades of browns all together. The warm earthy tones put off that super cozy vibe in the fall and winter. This gorgeous clutch by Camino Brands is a go-to favorite of mine. We are giving you a chance to win a Banker Bag, so head to our Instagram to find out how...
