I started my new job so I apologize for being MIA. I have so much going from now up until graduation so I will do my very best to keep everyone updated on whats currently going on in my life. I do have some exciting work coming to the blog as well that I can not wait to share with all of you.
One of the things I incorporated into my routine this year was working out. I have truly started to figure out more about myself through this process. I am a very anxious person so hitting the gym has become part of my relaxation routine. It is truly what gets me through my week.
I am taking my time learning different workouts and am just starting to get my bearings around a gym. This is only the beginning of my fitness journey but I am so grateful for the positive changes I have seen both mentally and physically thus far.
Part of working out comes with different work out outfits. And a huge thank you to one of my fitness role models, Whitney Simmons for getting me hooked on Gymshark. PSA: For those of you pondering whether or not you want to start your own fitness journey I highly suggest watching Whit. I didn’t even work out when I began watching her youtube videos and they changed my views on fitness. You don’t have to have the biggest muscles or lift huge weights in order to benefit from her videos. Working out is not a diet, its a lifestyle. Whatever your reasons behind hitting the gym are part of your own journey to living a healthy life.
For me, the gym isn’t really about my looks. I have a body that I love so its not about how much gain I can add to the booty. Its a place where I can relax. The turning point for me was going to gym when I had, had a really… bad… day…I suffer from chronic stomach issues as well as anxiety and I was not feeling well at all one day. I decided to go to the gym despite this. By the end of my workout I couldn’t describe how much better I felt. It was truly inspiring. So if you’re thinking of taking that first step at the gym give it a try!
But on to the outfit…
I am obsessed with gymshark. They are a pain in the butt when it comes to shipping and what not but their product are amazing. They don’t break the bank like most athletic wear and I love the trendy look of all the pieces. This Ribbon Crop Top is so cute!!! Its has a nice twist for a basic muscle tee. I paired it with these cool high waisted leggings from Victoria Secret and it showed just enough skin to feel as though you were still covered.
I have been so overwhelmed lately in the best way possible. Life is just so fast-paced at the moment, I am doing my best to just pause and enjoy it. Life isn’t all sunshines and rainbows as I get stressed out easily but I am trying my best to make the most of it. I […]
This week I want to share with you this hat I got from a company called Baddogtee. I am a sucker for local family-owned businesses so when they reached out and contacted me I was honored. They sent me a custom embroidered hat with my blog logo on it. Easily my most favorite baseball cap in […]
This weather has really put me behind schedule with shooting outfit posts so I decided to start a new series on here that shows you the things I am currently loving. Similar to those Monthly Favorites videos on youtube, minus the youtube lol! Products ranging from beauty, books, fashion, and more to get the word […]
Hello friends! I know it has been a while, I have had a crazy two months back at school. It just feels like there has been event after event happening in my life so I haven’t had much time for myself. Hopefully things will quiet down soon and I can get back to posting on […]
Last night I was lucky enough to be invited to attend the amfAR New York Gala with some pretty great friends. One of my best friends from college invited me to tag along with her boyfriend and his family and friends. I had such a fun night with everyone, I am beyond blessed to have […]
I swear, this outfit makes me want to go on an adventure. I am ready for anything that comes my way as long as I got my Hunter rain boots and my L.L.Bean Quarter Zip. For Christmas, (I think I have mentioned this before) my family does a family-wide grab bag. My cousin, Victoria had me […]
Before the new year I packed up some family in the car and headed to New York City to see the Christmas tree before its taken down for the season. Now, I may only live fifteen minutes from the city but I love the Christmas decorations just as much as the next person. What can […]
I remember at the end of 2015 as my family and I got so excited for the year to end. We had gone through hardships for much of the year and the new beginning that comes each year was the only thing keeping us positive. “2016 is gonna be our year!” we all hoped. Boy…were […]
I have been mentally preparing myself for the cold to finally hit us. We had a bit of snow the week before Christmas which had me a little excited but it melted fast and it was another warm Christmas for us, here in New Jersey. I wasn’t exactly complaining but I am itching to wear […]
