I think it’s no secret that I have an obsession with Pure Barre. Whether it’s my InstaStories or a Instagram photo – I’m consistently professing my love hate relationship with this intense workout.
Now with that being said, I’m not going to lie – I am not Ms. Fitness by any means. Yes, I workout and I love that post workout feeling but I typically face the internal struggle of sleeping in vs. going to my 5:30 AM Barre class. I’m sure (or atleast hope) many of you can relate.
Regardless of the struggle I encounter of getting to Barre in the wee hours of the morning – I never regret going. The sense of community in the studio, the instructors cheering you on by name, the music, the literal shake you get from holding a move or pulsing. It’s always worth it.
Well, I know I said it before – with these frigid temps (outside of yesterday, 60 degrees in January?!) I wish I could just sit indoors all day long ignoring my responsibilities and staying warm. But since I can’t – layers have become my best friend. Well layers and this faux fur jacket.
Not only is this jacket warm it also is the perfect statement piece to add to any wardrobe. Honestly – I’ve worn it with t-shirts, with dresses, it just compliments any outfit.
In the recent months I’ve acquired a couple faux fur pieces in my wardrobe – from vests to tops to jackets. I think it’s official I’m craving currently – FAUX FUR e v e r y t h i n g.
Well guys, it’s happened – the cold frigid temps have moved in and I have decided that the only place I need to be is sitting in front of my space heater, wearing flannel PJs and covered in a warm blanket.
Unfortunately, I can’t do that all winter.
Like all of you, I have responsibilities, you know, like work and being an adult. 🙂 Good thing my friends at Jord Watches were kind enough to send me one of their handcrafted timepieces to help me attain a happy medium balance of heater sitting and making it to work on time. They also were kind enough to allow me to host a GIVEAWAY for all of you to be able to get your happy medium balance on as well. Details will be at the end of this post!
If you’re craving currently a timepiece that is unique (each timepiece is hand crafted from natural wood so inherently each one is different) and stylish – this post is for you.
Let me first say, I had no, and I mean literally no idea that last Friday would be a day that would be marked in my memory forever. It all started at my favorite coffee shop, Artifact coffee, and ended way better than any Friday I can remember.
I don’t share too many personal things on this blog so I figured I should start with a little bit of history between Matt and I. We’ve known each other for almost 8 years – friends for four, dating for three and a half. While I thought an engagement would happen soon (it may have been something I was #cravingcurrently…see what I did there) I didn’t think 2016 soon. My thoughts were thinking maybe Spring (March/April are our birthday months) therefore I was in complete shock when I saw him get down on one knee.
The time has come. The time to reflect on the year that has past and prepare for the one coming.
I found this dress well before I began reflecting on this amazingly interesting year we have all called 2016 and I knew right away it was what I’d be wearing NYE.
