The Workout That Has Changed My Life

You’ve probably heard me say that I don’t like working out. I can be really consistent one week, and then over it the next. I know I need to do it, but sometimes it’s a struggle to find an ounce of motivation.

Last winter I tried barre with some of my coworkers. I’m normally afraid to try new things, and leading up to it, I was extremely nervous. Nervous that I wouldn’t be able to do the moves. Nervous that I’d look like an idiot next to my coworkers. Nervous that I’d throw up. TMI?!

But, after that first class, I felt an incredible sense of pride. I did it…and I didn’t throw up! I liked that the class incorporated cardio and also muscle toning. I felt like I was working parts of my body that I don’t normally work on my own, and I really liked that I was getting a full body workout.An Update on my Fitness Journey

How to Decide if a Handbag is Worth the Investment

Confession: I’m a bag lady. As I’ve gotten older, I’m more willing to spend a little more money on handbag. Deciding to splurge on a handbag is a big decision, but I absolutely believe that buying a high quality, more expensive bag can be a wise investment when it comes to your wardrobe. A designer handbag can make more affordable pieces look more expensive, and depending on what style you choose, can be the focal point of an outfit.

What I’m Grateful For

Lately I’ve been thinking about how well things have been going. I’m the first to admit that I probably use this blog as an outlet to share when things aren’t going well, but I feel that it’s important to acknowledge when I’m in a good place. I was inspired by Jessi of The Darling Detail to share what I’m thankful for, because we need to acknowledge the good in life as much as the bad.  Continue Reading
