Get Fit | Day 1

Hey loves, just wanted to share with you my journey to a fit and healthy lifestyle. I'm forever trying to get fit but I never stick to it. But this time around I think I will be able too. I just signed up for this fitness centre and I'm loving it already. With my membership I'm able to do all these classes for free; like Zuma and Yoga. Haven't done any on those yet but I can't wait to try.
Today was my first day there and I spent a hour doing cardio. Honestly for my first month there I'm going to focus on just cardio. I don't really want into it too fast and then want to give up right away. I went on the treadmill for 30minutes and the elliptical for another 30. I'm super happy that I didn't stop and I kept going even though I just getting out of breathe. By the end of the first month I hope I will be able to do 2 hrs without feeling like death but we will see.
This time around I'm definitely going to keep you ladies and gents updated regularly. My current weight is 160.6lbs and I'm hoping to get down to 125-135lbs. I'm also working on eating better but that's a challenge. If you guys have any thoughts on what I should eat I would love to hear it.

Haul | Work Out Clothes

Hey loves, just wanted to share with you this small fitness haul. I started back at the gym today; which will be the next post. I wanted to pick up somethings to work out in. So I stopped by Footlocker and picked up 2 pair of Niké Shorts. They were on sale for $30. Next I stopped by the Bay and picked up a Niké sports bra on sale for $21. And lastly I stopped by Champs and picked up a pair of Niké Free Run Runners. I'm super excited to be going to the gym and I can't wait to pick up a new pair of cross trainers. So definitely look out for another fitness post real soon.

Hey loves, just wanted to stop by and share with you what I had on my nails last week. Lately I've been shopping a lot and I haven't been posting about them. But I wanted to share with you one of my new favorite nude polishes ever. I think this polish compliments my skin tone very well and it doesn't chip at all.
This manicure consisted of:
Essie Ridge Filling Base Coat
Revlon ColorStay Rose Beige
Revlon ColorStay Gel Shine Top Coat
  I'm definitely loving this color and it's going to be a Fall staple for me. What are you currently wearing on your nails?

OOTD | 07.11.13

Hey loves, just stopping by to share with you the outfit I wore out yesterday. It was my day sort of and I was off early enough to enjoy the dance weather. I haven't had a chance to really catch any sun and I wanted to get a little color going on so I decided to wear some shorts. I kept it really simple and causal and I loved it.
Tank top - Sirens
Retro High Waisted Shorts - Garage
Flip Flops - Niké
I'm honestly enjoying the summer and I'm super happy that I finally have embraced my body to the fullest. I can't wait to share with you more looks during the rest of summer.

Hey loves, just wanted to share with you what I'm currently wearing on my nails. I wanted to try out another one of the polishes I recently picked up from Essie's summer collection. Untitled
This mani consisted of:
Essie Ridge Filling Base Coat
Essie Dj Play That Song Revlon
ColorStay Gel Shine Top Coat
You guys know I couldn't pass on this color. I love my purples so much. And this is no different. This is a great purple and it's a matte finish but I needed that glossy affect. Can't wait to wear it again but keep it matte.
