Saturday Workout

For the last month or so I have gotten pretty serious about getting rid of my pooch.. yeahh I have fat on my body. There I said it.
I’ve never been a big fan of running, I’m usually short on breath without being agitated and the thought of running makes my nasal septum  swell up even more. (Yes, I looked it up for accuracy) To my surprise, though, I am starting to really like it so I made a profile on Smashrun and if you’re starting out with your running or looking for something new I strongly recommend you check it out. It’s completely online and totally FREE! I feel guilty when I get lazy because I know my Smashrun profile will show I didn’t run on X day. I’m having a lot of fun with my running and my workouts and rewarding myself with new shoes!
I’m learning to make time for exercise and determined to get rid of my pooch by the end of the year.

I shared my goal.. :) Tell me yours!

Shopaholic Post!

So I’ve been working my ass off lately, hence, the lack of blog posts. With my new business and getting it ready for launch day & T and I are t-minus 2 weeks from move in day & I’m sick!! More announcements will come about East + Mia, don’t worry, you will be in the know. ;) So in my free time or my can’t-sleep-time (time you waste while you’re trying to fall asleep) I’ve ended up on Pinterest; something that after my blog kicked up I kind of left out of my day. Well maybe I was getting a bit bored of it and became an Insta addict. Anyways, I’ve found some really great outfit inspiration on Pinterest lately that I wanted to share!
AND… OMG SHAKIRA IS PREGO, I’ll look forward to a couple posts on Shakira in the future!

In lieu of an outfit post, I’d like to say if any of you ever win the lottery please share with me so I can buy a bunch of pretty clothes and blog all about them haha!
Well my ladies, have a great weekend I probably won’t get another post in this week.. Love all you gals who keep coming back to read!! Thank you so much!

I am becoming a business owner!

thoughts for a new business owner

Excitement is rushing through me and I’m struggling to keep it together I just wanna share every detail with you. Btw.. I’m so sorry I’ve neglected you all… but I had to do what I had to do… soon my blog will jump back up into priorities, promise. You know with launching my first business and all I have had to use my time wisely! Every ounce of this excitement is thanks to you.. I thank you all for reading for your feedback and support! If it were not for this blog I’m not sure I’d have the guts to go through with putting myself and my ideas and designs out there for the world to see and hopefully BUY!

Soon you will start to hear a lot about this new baby of mine! I hope I’m not building up too much anticipation… the U.S team already tried to give us a heart attack. I think that’s good for today.



It’s Father’s Day!!

Time to give your dad a big ‘ol hug and tell him you love him-for putting up with you as a teenager and for supporting you through your career troubles when you can’t pay your phone bill…yup. Well, here is a little gift guide in case you haven’t gotten him a gift! Hope you all have a great day if you get to spend it with your dads. & happy father’s day to all the dads in the world.
