IN THE MOOD LACE

This Reformation Lace top is pretty, simple, fitted, and jazzes up jeans for night - available in black and white. Click HERE to shop before it goes out of stock again. It just got restocked and is already sold out in many sizes. Created in 2009 by Yael Aflalo, Reformation designs and manufactures the majority of their limited-edition collections in downtown Los Angeles. All other garments are produced by responsible manufacturing partners here in the U.S. or abroad using sustainable methods and materials. Employment in the U.S. apparel manufacturing industry has declined by more than 80 percent (from about 900,000 to 150,000 jobs) over the past two decades. I do not receive proceeds from purchase of...

IN THE MOOD FOR DANGER

DANGER! DANGER! Proceed with caution as you approach the woman wearing this bag. Call me crazy but I like that this Off-White’s (that is the brand name) cross body strap mimics police caution tape. Who doesn’t want to feel a little dangerous? A bright hands-free bag is a great way to perk us up while running around on a blah gray rainy day like today. It isn't often that we see something really different and fun, like this or the Hill and Friends happy face clasp bag, mentioned in a previous post. No the paper clip clasp isn't an accident, it is "fashion" and I like it because I find it funny. If you have your heart set on a...

IN THE MOOD GYM INSPIRATION

At 51 I feel better than ever, and I really do believe that age is only a number. Look at what I can do after a year of dedicated strength training - squats with 135 pound weights. Crazy, right? Check out the legs on my 43-year-old friend and health coach, Adele Bonnie. Incredible! Look at 80-year-old Ernestine Shepherd pictured above. Wow!! My and Adele’s goals have shifted over time. I used to be more concerned with being “thin” but now I’m more interested in muscle tone and strength. Adele used to run for hours but now she loves seeing how many pull-ups she can knock out in 5 minutes. Our goals...

IN THE MOOD FOR REFLECTION

"Americans are obsessed with happiness - and it's making us miserable". Lol! Per Ruth Whippman a Brit and author living in the USA. We laugh, but maybe she has a point and it is at least worth thinking about. Did my kid make the A team? Get invited to the party? Should I go to the gym or catch up on my much needed rest? Should I start that gratitude journal or pick up Gretchen Rubin's best seller Happier at Home? The book The Alchemist told me I should know my passion and pursue it. What is my passion? I should know it! She seems nice, I'd like to be her friend, but will she like me? Do...

IN THE MOOD FOR CORE

Are we ever in the mood for core workouts? Maybe not. But I do need them. Some days (like today for me) we can't make it to the gym and just want someone to tell us what to do so we can get it done, quickly. So here you go. I've got 1 to share! We can do (try) anything for 6 minutes right? We just follow along (the best we can) as we watch Lauren Kleban's video. Forget crunches. Planks are where it's at. Nothing but a device, floor, mat, and maybe elbow pads are needed - so we have no excuses right? Lauren is a former professional dancer, choreographer, Hollywood trainer, and now digital fitness...
