Happy 2018 lovelies! I cannot believe how fast 2017 flew by, I mean seriously y’all, where does the time go?! 2017 was quite a year but I am more than ready and excited for 2018 and all it has in store! I love the New Year because it symbolizes a fresh start and I’m all about that. Every New Year, I take time to focus on what I really want and make a list of what I hope to achieve for that year. I’m planning on sharing my list of goals with all of you next week but I did want to focus on one today that is a repeat year after year. Every year, I strive to incorporate fitness and an overall healthy lifestyle into my daily routine (bet ya didn’t see that one coming…#cliche).
This year, I want to find a fitness routine that I can push myself to stick to. I am absolutely obsessed with Pure Barre and have been for quite awhile now so I am striving to attend classes 5x/week. If you haven’t tried Pure Barre yet, I highly recommend it! It’s such a great workout and is guaranteed to make you break a sweat. Besides Pure Barre, I want to try out other classes/programs such as Orangetheory, Tone It Up and BBG. I’ve heard great reviews on all three so I’m dying to try them out! I also want to make healthy eating a priority and finally start meal prepping. Y’all, I’m so so bad at this. This year, I vow to find a program that provides healthy eating options so that I can stay on track. If you have any recommendations, please let me know! Oh, and one tip I’ll pass on is never go to the grocery store hungry. That’s usually how I grocery shop and it never turns out well (how did ice cream and Oreos end up in my cart…), so that’s a little goal I have for the year as well.
Switching gears a bit, these leggings are a must have. They’re my favorite as you’ve probably heard me mention before but they’re so good! I own multiple pairs, some for working out and others for wearing out and running errands. They’re flattering and the cost doesn’t break the bank! I’ve linked two of my favorite styles below as well as my new Nikes that I cannot stop wearing. They’re the lightest and most comfortable tennis shoes I’ve ever owned. Plus, the grey color goes with everything!
What are your fitness goals for the New Year? I’d love to hear!
With Black Friday just around the corner, I thought it would be a perfect time to kick off my Holiday Gift Guide Series with Gifts for the Hostess. With all the Holiday dinners coming up, including Thanksgiving, I wanted to share a few favorites for the hostess. I always make sure to have a few of these on hand just in case a last minute invite pops up. Whether you’re celebrating the holiday season with dinner or drinks at your girlfriends, your parents or your in-laws, be sure not to show up empty handed!
I love these gorgeous stemless wine glasses; I’ve had my eye on these glasses for a while and may even order some for our home! These diffusers seriously smell SO good! This candle also happens to smell amazing, it has a subtle holiday scent that is not too overwhelming. The packaging is also so cute to display! I cannot get enough of this monogrammed cheese plate because a good charcuterie board can really get the party started! Also, how cute are the slate cheese labels?! This gold accented pineapple shaker is perfect addition for your girlfriends’ kitchen! With bar carts being so on trend right now, I thought this book would be a great gift idea as well! I’ll also be sharing a post soon about how to style a Holiday Bar Cart, so be sure to keep your eye out for that!
I’ll be continuing to share Holiday Gift Guides throughout the upcoming weeks so be sure to stop by often! I’ve also created a ‘Holiday Shop’ tab where you can easily shop all my Gift Guides, as well as Holiday Wear and Holiday Home Decor.
