I can't express to you enough how much I love this style of handbag. It is perfect for a laid back day with friends, or a nice night out with a significant other.

MONDAY MOTIVATION





...and here is a little
MONDAY MOTIVATION
to start your week


This post is just a friendly reminder to start your week off strong and healthy.
Eat Smart * Drink Your Water * and Make Time For Yourself.... in style of course :)


Last week, I decided to increase my workouts in the gym and started training with my boyfriend, Aaron. I'll be honest, it took a couple days to get the momentum I needed to keep up, but over the weekend I found myself craving to get back at it. Despite my muscles being EXTREMELY sore and walking like a zombie all week, I can't wait to wake up and continue my training! 
It's "Better To Be Sore Than Sorry", right?! 

These photos are just a few personal style selections I browsed over and wanted to share including brands from NIKE  |  ADIDAS  |  LULU LEMON.

FALL FAVORITES | ASOS

 


FALL FAVORITES x ASOS

One of my absolute favorite resources to find unique pieces to add to my closet is ASOS.
I have spent hours upon hours browsing this site to find some of my favorite pieces in the past-- and will continue to do so for a long time. 

I decided to compile some specific pieces I have found fashion forward and budget friendly for those who are looking to spice up their own fall wardrobe collection. (*each photo is provided with a direct link to the garment or accessory) ... ALSO, feel free to let me know what you think and send me the pieces you find on your own. I would love to see your favorite picks!

--- and BEWARE --- you might be shopping this online site for a while (which isn't a bad thing!) :)

Happy Shopping!

PINTEREST INSPIRED



Every now and then I like to share a few things that I find inspiring from other individuals -- particularly those from Pinterest. This week I have had a fetish for oversized outerwear, as well as casual basics.
