Working out at home is as easy as... 1 2 3!

Hey Everyone!!!

A lot of people come to me for tips on working out when you have kids or arent able to afford a gym membership. It doesnt take much to work out at home. If you purchase a few things (3 to be exact) it will be enough to do a full body workout in the comfort of your home.

1. A stability ball: these can be used for a number of different exercises from abs, fly's, core work, and so much more. These are very inexpensive and you can usually find them for about 20 dollars or less. Most of them will come with a C.D. showing you some different exercises you can do.

2. Dumbells: I would recommend getting 3 sets, a 5 lb set, a 10lb set, and either a 12lb or 15 lb set. These can be a bit more costly than the other items but if you are in an area where they have a Play It Again Sports, then you can get used ones from there.

3. Jump rope: A jump rope is an amazing tool for at home cardio. If you do intervals of 1 minute of jumping non-stop you will definitely feel the burn. You can do these intervals combined with other cardio drills that you dont need any equipment for.

 With these tools and the desire and discipline to get in shape, I know you can have an amazing workout at home!!

Black and White with a pop of.... PINK!!


Hey Everyone!!

Today I had a meeting at this awesome place called the Oxford Exchange in Tampa, Fl. As soon as you walk in, you feel like you are instantly being transported to a different city. The decor has an eclectic, vintage feel that I couldn't help but admire! They had a bookstore, tea bar, coffee bar, and an restaurant with both inside and outside sitting. Here are some pics from the Oxford Exchange:

Today I decided to rock an outfit that mixed some business with pleasure. I love black and white, so I wore a black and white sweater with patterned hot pink capri's, so much fun! If you look good, you feel good, and I felt great :)!

Shopping Doesn't Have to Break the Bank

Ralph Lauren 
 Hey Everyone!
Last week I was out with my family and we decided to stop at T.J. Maxx. I personally love stores like T.J. Maxx and Marshalls, because you can get a lot of designer items at affordable prices.

Here are a few of the items I purchased:

Since its still pretty warm here this shirt caught my eye. Its a nice mustard color for fall with a pop of color with the blue polka-dots. I also love the gold detailing with the buttons.

This piece has lace, gold and black buttons, and sequins all in one shirt. My kind of shirt!

Another nice sheer shirt with a great orange color, blue trimming, and the cut out in the back is a nice detail as well.
A simple off white lace skirt. This skirt is a nice length for me because I am pretty tall, so when I saw it, I had to buy it. I know its fall/winter but in Florida we pretty much can wear skirts year around :).
Menswear is definitely in right now and I loved these tasseled Dolce Vita loafers. They were such a great price that I had to get both!!

And lastly, I got a few accessories. I purchased two chain handbags and one taupe scarf.

I got all these things for around 150 dollars. Its a rare moment to be able to get this many quality items at such a good price. So if your looking for quality items that are still affordable, T.J. Maxx is a good place to start :)!

Hey Everyone!! 
I'm back with a track workout for you all. I ABSolutely love doing track workouts. They are great for a number of reasons! I love them because sprinting does amazing things for your abs and because workouts done on the track are usually high intensity and are great for fat loss. 

I filmed most of the workout but it was really windy so some of the speaking portions are hard to hear so I will also write out the workout so you know what Im saying in the video :)!

Track workout:

*Warm up: jog an 800 (2 laps around the track), very easy pace just getting your blood flowing.
*1 round:
-Run one 400 (one lap around)
-Do one set of bleachers --> going all the way down and up each row until you     reach the end and jog back to where you started 
-Do this 3 more times for a total of 4 rounds 
*After all 4 rounds are completed go back down to the track and do four 100m sprints (the straight portion of the track). After each sprint you do an active rest by walking back to where you started and as soon as you get back, you sprint again.

Once you finish all four sprints, your done!!!


Thanks for watching and have a great workout!!!
