Cake Temptations

You can’t have your cake and eat it too.  Everyone in my life knows how crazy I am about body image, working out, and my diet.  I wouldn’t say I am obsessive, but it is true when they say you can’t have your cake and eat it too.  Needing to find that balance during celebrations, vacations, and the sweetness of summer is a challenge I normally face at this time of year.  However, with a few boosts to my all ready “strict” regime, I promise myself I’ll be satisfied.  Here are ways I’ll be keeping up with all of the celebrations life has recently been throwing my way:

  1. Drink more water!
  2. Sweat seven days a week!
  3. Only indulge if the celebration is for me! (Graduation/Birthday)
  4. Cut back on alcohol
  5. Eat more vegetables
  6. Count out portions exactly
  7. Get creative with recipes

Stained Lips

Bobbi Brown Hollywood Red + Revlon Peach + Fuchsia Fusion + Laura Mercier Wildberry

A few weeks back I was running errands with my mom and we started chatting about life, growing up, and the reality of adulthood.  One of the points that came up in our conversation was the reality of needing to wear a lip color.  Throughout recent years, I have experimented with the trending lip colors, but to make a fashion statement rather than to embrace my adult life.  Since the conversation, I have stocked up on numerous lip shades that I plan to incorporate into my every day look.

Chair Hunt

It has been over a year now that my bedroom has been in its “re-design” phase.  About a year and a half ago I decided to change my bubblegum pink walls to a more sophisticated tan, and swap out my stark white furniture for a cast iron bed and dark wooden antique pieces!  To say I am obsessed with my new bedroom is an understatement, however, I am still searching for the perfect chair to compliment my mirrored desk!  I never knew how difficult it would be until now. Here are three different chairs I have been contemplating over:
