Lookin Good.


 My apologies for not making a new post in awhile! Ive been busy with life stuff, job stuff all that stuff you have to do after you graduate college and you no longer have the luxury of skipping class and eating oreos.....you get the picture. Anyhoo I wanted to show you two of my friends fabulous looks! The first picture is my friend Holly! I think she nailed this one, stripes with denim shirts is one of my absolute favorite styles and I love how she paired it with pearls and black jeggings! 


Next we have Alyssa if you know me you probably know her she is my life partner not really and I make her model for me when I'm to lazy to try clothes on. Here we have a super cozy shaw that fits like a glove (literally) around your shoulders. Alyssa paired it with a polka dot blouse and purple jeans. After a few embarrassing attempts in trying to but that furry thing on as a skirt, she got this look right and Anthropologie loved the enthusiasm.

Ohh..and this couch is KILLING It.

This nude lace trend is taking showing off a little skin in public to a whole new level. Sexy is the first word that comes to mind when you see the "classic" lace dress with a sheer underlay. Celebrities like Kristen Stewart have been seen sporting this look recently, wearing lovely pieces by Zuhair Murad.  Finding dresses as sheer as these are popping up everywhere including places like Nasty Gal. Basically if your feeling sexy as ever, or If you like to party naked then this look is definitely for you.

Get a Great workout in 10 Minutes!




If your like me your pretty busy! Whether its because you work full time, your an artist or still in school, sometimes you get the feeling that it is impossible to fit in a work out with your busy life style. This my friends is a common misconception because you indeed DO have time. Short work outs that are about 10 minutes can be as good for your today as a 30 minute work out if you challenge your strength and include cardio. These three videos are some of my favorite workouts that really make me feel the burn! Best part is they only last ten minutes and they are strenuous enough to keep me in shape! I challenge you to try them! If you like these head over to fitsugar.com for more. Make sure after your work out your still maintaing your healthy eating habits. This week I will post a sample diet plan that is easy to follow and WILL change your life for the better.
