Sister Time

Last night after work I met up with my sister for hot barre! It was fun, it had been too long since I had visited the studio. I was missing it and needed the stretch. We followed up barre with dinner and sister talk, just what I needed!

Girls Night In

Remember how I told you all about my top picks from the new Stella & Dot fall collection? Well I loved it so much, I decided to have a party of my own. It was a great excuse to make me clean my place, invite others to my home, see family and friends and of course shop! Lauren, my Stella & Dot stylist of choice was such a sweetheart. Make sure you visit her page. Don’t forget to check out the super cool versatile pieces like the 5-way Sutton necklace, too cool!

Cowboy Caviar

At girls night, I wanted to serve light, refreshing relatively easy snacks so I decided to give this recipe for Cowboy Caviar a go. It was delish. I’ve had other variations before, but I think this is probably the healthiest. The leftovers were also a winner at the office the next day. Pictured above is my lunch along with some of said leftovers! I was too busy to remember to take a picture Monday night.

Last night at hot barre I finally got the chance to try out my new mat. I got The Mat by Lululemon for my birthday and just hadn’t gotten a chance to test it out yet. Let me tell you I was not disappointed. It is ever bit as good and wonderful as the reviews say. Can’t wait to take it to hot yoga this weekend!


Don’t you love their motivational packaging?

Cookie Dough Quest Bars

Thank goodness I was able to get restocked on the delicious protein packed cookie dough bars yesterday. They’ve been selling out all over in my neck of the woods. I was hooked after my first one! Definitely my favorite so far Quest, keep em’ coming. I couldn’t have found them at a better time either because I’m working on my diet and trying to get 40% of my daily calories from protein. Easier said then done, but I like a challenge!

J Crew T’s – on Sale!

These super cute wear with anything tees are on sale in stores and online. I love the button detail, vibrant colors and the ability to pair them with slacks, a skirt or jeans and killer Stella & Dot statement necklace. Available in stripes and solids you can’t go wrong. Happy shopping!



I know I can’t be the only one who has been wondering what tabata was. Thanks to Erin at Fit Bottomed Girls for the downlow and tips for first timers. I’ll be trying tabata soon, don’t worry I’ll let you know how it goes.

Make sure to check out Fit Bottomed Girls blog, I love their tag line “Keeping a lid on the junk in the trunk”. Made me smile

White Chocolate Raspberry Quest Bar

I finally came across one of these yesterday when I was stocking up on my Cookie Dough flavored Quest Bars. This is another new flavor for Quest. I haven’t tried it yet but I’m super excited too.

I love me some Pop Sugar! Especially FitSugar, but all those ladies know whats going on. Anyways, I’ve seen them offer these boxes before, there are both month and special edition options, to sample products they recommend for the upcoming season and this time I just decided to go for it. I can’t wait for it to come and to give you guys the full scoop on everything it contained and how I liked it. If you want to order too visit their site before they sell out.
