Friday: Week’s Recap

Happy Friday, y’all! This week has been interesting.

I started out Monday by quitting my “buffer” job because after analyzing the daycare vs. take home costs, it just didn’t make sense to bother with the job. I still have my business license and insurance for my cleaning business, A Modern Cinderella, so I figured I could keep the kids out of daycare starting next week if I didn’t find a job and just do cleanings instead of the 8 to 5 grind. {If any of y’all in the Charleston area are looking for a housecleaner – I’m your gal!}

On Tuesday, I had an interview with a company based in Dubai that went really well. I had the 2nd interview on Wednesday and landed the job! That was quick, right? I start sometime between February 15th and March 1st. It’s a nice downtown office by the aquarium and I basically get to run my own show there as the Office Manager/Logistics Coordinator.

Other than that, I’ve been spending my “time off” doing a lot of the following {if you follow me on Instagram, these might not be new to you!}:

Walking my girl, Tundra. {Isn’t this a nice place I can walk to from my house? So serene.}

 

And by the way, totally enjoying the Roxy Outdoor Fitness Collection items I was sent to try out via Skinny Mom. How awesome are these pants? Such breathable and comfy fabric for all workouts – outdoor and indoor alike. In LURVE with the color.

Getting a lot of time playing with these two handsome little men.
And I’ve also been cleaning up la casa a lot and trying to get some of those lingering household projects out of the way. And of course hitting the gym…and I also started Insanity again on Monday…gettin’ ready for bikini weather!
Speaking of bikini weather, I’ve been pinning a lot of cute summer-weather outfits on my Fashion & Style Pinboard on Pinterest…and this week, this get-up really piqued my interest:
Summer look

This outfit has everything – sexy bare legs while keeping it classy up top, cute sandal heels, a colorful necklace and even a pop of the Pantone Color of the Year – Emerald. It’s comfy, yet not too casual. This could easily go from day to night. Here are some items I found that can help you recreate this look:
dENiZENĀ® from the Levi'sĀ® brand Dakota Short  - Assorted Colors
{Shorts – Target}
{Tank – Piperlime}
{Blazer – Forever 21}
Princess Vera Wang Tri-Tone Arrowhead and Fringe Bib Necklace
{Necklace – Kohls}
{Michael Kors Heels – Zappos}
Have you been pinning any summer outfit inspiration lately?

Introducing: Fit For Fashion Fridays

Those of you that have been reading since I started blogging over a couple years ago know that I had to do it. I had to incorporate my love of fitness SOMEWHERE in this style blog. Even though I contribute fitness-related blog posts over at Skinny Mom, I felt the need to do a little something here too. But it will be a little something different.

I believe fitness and fashion/style do go hand in hand. We all know clothes look better on when we are at our healthiest…and when we feel good about ourselves, we tend to take more risks with our fashion/style. That is what Fit For Fashion Fridays are all about…motivating you to be your best YOU…be confident.

Each week, I will impose a fitness challenge upon you. All you’ve got to do is accept it. If you are already an avid fitness junkie, all you need to do is add my challenge on to your regular workout regimen…just to give yourself a little something extra. If you are new to fitness, do what is comfortable for you and work to complete the challenge as best you can. The goal here is to get better. There are no losers here…only winners. Giving your all is never a loss.

All I ask are a few things…{if you do any of these things, you are officially AWESOMESAUCE in my book.}

1. On any week you take a challenge, please post a link to the week’s challenge post as a way to share it with your readers/friends/family and to ask them to join in on the challenge with you – via Facebook, blog post, Twitter, etc.

2. Leave a comment on this post or my Facebook page letting me know you’re in! {I gotta know who’s with me!}

3. Add one of my buttons to your blog as a reminder to check back each Friday for the weekly challenge. {See sidebar of my blog for button options.}

4. If you should so choose to chronicle your fitness progress on your blog, I would be most appreciative if you could link back to my blog in the post…spread the word, spread fitness! {This is an extra, above and beyond thing and I realize that…so it’s not expected, but completely and utterly appreciated from the bottom of my heart.}

Now, without further adieu, this week’s challenge:

Do every day {if not 5-6 days} this week. Good luck!
