Fitness Friday!

Happy friday!!! Ive been doing yoga for about 2 years and I love it so much. The peace and sense of calm that you get is wonderful and so is the workout!

Heres a pic of a few standard poses that will help get your day started :) I added how to get into each pose to make it simpler. I think my fav might be the plank #7 for core and arm strenght try it out and let me know what you think.

1. standing straight up clasp hand behind back and slowly bend forward slightly bending your knees.
2. legs shoulder width apart rasie both arms in the air and grab opposite elbows, slowly bend to each side.
3. start in down dog postion and raise each leg one at a time.
4. start in down dog and bring right leg to the front aligned with your shoulder (warrior 1 postion) firmly place left hand on the ground and raise right hand in the air (back staight)
5. warrior 1 postion place left knee on ground keep back straight
6. start in warrior 1 and then turn facing the front, left hand touches ground or ankle and right hand stretches in the air (do the same for both sides)
7. plank pose make sure elbows are aligned with your shoulders and keep back straight
8.  you can either squat or sit indian style with hands at heart center to complete the sequence

sole mates...

     Good Morning Guys! As you all probably know from several previous post, I LOVE shoes!! I promise though that the recent splurge in three pairs of shoes were all for a great reason.  What's the reason you might ask? I needed a great shoe to wear to a friends wedding of course!

These blue spiked babies...OH-EM-GEE!! This is the Ruth shoe and I got these from shoemint last month. Let me tell you that they may have restored my love for pointed toe pumps. When I saw them on the site my first thought was that the color is amazing but of course the internet does not do things much justice.  They got to my house and the first thing I thought was Carrie's shoes in SATC movie. Granted, hers were Manolo Blahnik and the hue of blue was different but the concept of the shoe is similar.


I had been eyeballing these shoes from Zara for quite some time and when I saw them in July they were on sale so you know I took that as a sign that meant they had to come home with me :) I dont remember what the original price was but I got them for $30. 

Last but definitely not least, these were the shoes that made their debut at the wedding.  Got these from Zara for $80 (ever since I used to work there zara always seems to get all my money smh) and the pink part over the toe matched my dress almost perfectly! These are current season so they will still be at the store if you like them :)

So I guess my question is...Can a girl have too many shoes??

Hugs and Shoe Love :)

Max Mara

Have I mentioned how much I love the fall season?? Not that summer is great but some days are just too hot to even be naked. Recently Ive been kind of obsessing over a few fall collections and I think that Max Mara has hit the top of my list. 

These are just a few pics that I saw and I love everything about it.  The colors, the lenghts, the sleek cut on the coats and dresses are just amazing and makes you feel warm and cozy just looking at them.

Hugs and Fall Love :)

Thanks to those of you who wished me a happy birthday!! :) #25GetLive
