Glam LA Aztec Tassel Dress

It’s really cold. Like really really cold. So I decided to share this dress with you because it reminds me of CA and CA sounds so much warmer. This cute tasseled baby doll dress is by Glam LA Apparel, so no wonder it reminds me of CA! Glam LA has a relaxed, fun feel with gorgeous and well made fabric! Of course I wish it was warm enough for me to wear it without a jacket, but this is one of my favorite jackets I’ve ever owned! It’s gorgeous and goes with just about any outfit! I’ve linked it below, along with some of the other colors it comes in!

Free People Dolman Quilted Bomber Jacket

I love the slouchy fit of this quilted bomber jacket from Free People. It’s such a different take on a regular bomber. Normally I hear bomber and I immediatly think of a military green kind of silky looking jacket, so I love this dusty pink color and the quilted details! The quilting also makes it much warmer than a regular bomber jacket as well, so that makes it perfect for winter!

I have also been a little bit obsessed with these mantrabands lately. I love them for the new year because I like having a little reminder on my wrist every day that helps me keep my goals and remember my “mantras” if you will. I love wearing them all together as a stack, but some days I just add one for a little detailed reminder. I think my favorite right now is “Live What You Love”. What one would you pick?

Tolani Tina Navy Plaid Shirtdress

I love plaid. Have I said that before? The Tolani Tina Navy dress is so dang cute. I love that you can wear it as a dress in the spring or summer or as a tunic top in the colder months to stay warmer, but what I love even more is the cute pattern on the back of the dress! I love the scarf print detail so much!

Plus, the Clara bag from Ora Delphine is the perfect crossbody! I love the small size and the cute detail on the clasp! I have been taking mine everywhere when I don’t want to lug around a full purse!

J.Crew Pleated Leather Skirt

This week has been a little overwhelming for me and I think an all black outfit just kind of speaks for itself…so I just wanted to share this quote that I found on pinterest today instead of telling you the joys of wearing a pleated leather skirt 🙂

“Breathe, my friend. You are not old, you are young. You are not a mess, you are normal. Extraordinary, perhaps. In the blink of an eye your life will change. And it will continue to change for decades to come. Enjoy it. Embrace it…be grateful for the ride. You are not old. You are young. And faith will get you everywhere. Just you wait.”

My 2017 Guide to Wanting to Working Out

How many of you are like me and find yourself lacking motivation to work out? I would love to be one of those people who is super consistent and super motivated. Working two full time jobs limits my time and sometimes I’m just so exhausted when I get home. I have made it a goal this year to try and be more consistent! I love working out, but sometimes I fall out of the habit and it’s harder for me to start again. So I’m going to try to make it a habit again! I have put together a little list of ideas to help you gain motivation and maybe even trick yourself into liking working out. If I can trick myself for a month, then I’ll probably be back in the habit and will be back to loving it! IMG_6279(My first workout of 2017!!!)

Try Something New! 

Sometimes doing the same thing over and over can get mundane. I love trying new classes and new exercises to see what I love the most. For example, I recently just started working out with an online trainer! At first you may think that getting a trainer online is not as good as the real thing. I’m here to change your mind. I started doing Kayla and I had such a hard time staying motivated and wasn’t seeing results because I couldn’t stay consistent. Recently I started working with @trainerkelli through the @level212 fitness app. It’s COMPLETELY PERSONALIZED! I love it. She asks me what my goals are and tailors my workout to me specifically, so I can focus on which parts of my body I want to improve or what fitness goals I want to achieve. It’s 100 times better than a workout app that has the same workouts for everyone. If I have a really hard time with a certain workout, I can message Kelli and she’ll switch it up or I can ask her for advise on how to do it. She sets up my workouts for how many times I can fit in during the week and I have to check in with her, so I have a lot of motivation and I don’t want to cheat since it’s a real person and not a computer! There are videos linked to each workout and describe and show you how each one should be done. I’m going to be doing a post specifically about this later, but this has helped me so much over the past few weeks because it motivates me to get there! Image-7

Get a buddy!

Lots of people think this means you have to have someone who is going to do your whole workout with you. Most people want totally different results or just have different bodies that respond to different things. If you find someone you totally match with then woo hoo, maybe you found your “swollmate”. However, I think just having someone to go with makes it so much harder for me to say no! Half my problem is just getting there so if I have someone that is counting on me or who is willing to just go at the same time that helps me a ton! This helps me so much, even if it’s just driving to the gym together and we separate and do our own workouts!

Make a Bomb.com Playlist!

What is the worst thing that could possibly happen to me at the gym…forgetting my headphones! Music totally pumps me up and keeps me going! I read somewhere that music actually helps people work out longer and harder. Who needs pre-workout when you have Beyonce right?

Make it Convient for you!

You don’t have to go to the gym for a good workout! If you don’t have tons of time to drive to or spend at the gym, pop in a Jillian Michael’s video at home! Or go out for a quick run! Sometimes I just go over to the gym at my apartment complex when I’m trying to save time. It doesn’t have all of the machines that my normal gym does, but if it makes it easier for me to work out, why wouldn’t I take advantage of it?! Also you don’t have to work out at 5 AM! You workout when you have time. Don’t force yourself to do something that is not going to work for you. Remember we’re trying to make this about loving your workout again!

Set Realistic Goals!

I always over exaggerate mine. I’m like I need to lose 20 pounds! I need to work out every day! But when I look at my schedule 3 days a week seems much more likely. Start small and work your way up to your big goals. By hitting the small steps first you’ll see progress and it will be motivating. Then you can keep reaching for your ultimate goal. I get discouraged when I don’t see it happening right away and I think coming to terms with that will help me in the long run.

Don’t Overindulge, but Don’t Deprive!

As far as a diet goes, my best option is balance. I struggle with eating chicken and rice every day, so I don’t do it. I try to eat healthy, but I don’t deprive myself of a little treat or cheat day! If I go completely crazy on a diet I’m miserable. Some people are amazing at this, but for me a little bit of moderation goes a long way. If you’re miserable you won’t want to stick with it and ultimately you’re not going to see goals.

Have fun! 

If you hate running, don’t run! Maybe try a Zumba class or Yoga! Find what you love and what makes you happy and stick with those exercises. Remember you are not the same as the girl next to you and different things are going to work better for different bodies! If you find something you love, and are having fun while doing it, you are much more likely to have it become a habit and you will look forward to your work out.

I hope these tricks were helpful and I’d love to hear what your thoughts are and also your goals and progress! Leave me a comment with what your health goals are for the year and if you have any other tricks you think work the best send them my way!!!

Madewell Big Sky Cutoff

Don’t let the snow in these photos fool you…it’s still cold and your car will still get stuck in it. Haha! Yesterday it took me a good 45 minutes to get my car out of the snow after being gone on vacation and not driving it for about two weeks. It was just covered and frozen!

So enjoy these photos where the snow looks nice and pretty and be glad if you don’t live in it!! Utah you are absolutely gorgeous, but I prefer you with no snow!

On another note, I’m a little bit in love with this Madewell Big Sky Cutoff Sweatshirt! I’m usually one for big oversized sweatshirts, but this one is perfect for layering in the cold! So I paired it with what else…duh plaid! The plaid flannel underneath keeps me warm in all the cold snow, and then I get the extra layering from a comfy sweatshirt, but I don’t look sloppy! I also kind of think it would look so cute with some high waisted denim or leggings for a casual look without a layered item underneath as well. Thoughts?

Cooper & Ella Tish Cheetah Print Dress

This outfit has three of my favorites things…a leather jacket, a statement necklace, and animal print…what could possibly be better? I love the little flare on the bottom of this Copper & Ella dress! I wanted to turn this girly dress into something a little more edgy, so I paired it with motorcycle boots and a leather jacket. I think a leather jacket adds so much character to any outfit!

Also you probably can’t tell because my face looks happy, but it was like 20 degrees outside and windy when we were shooting this! I dressed up as Marilyn Monroe for Halloween, but I think this is the closest I’ve gotten to a Marilyn moment with all that wind!
