Mad for March Giveaway

unnamed (33)

Giveaway time! Why, well because it’s March and because I really like giving things away.

Would you like to win this awesome Stella McCartney gym tote with fifteen samples, most of them deluxe size (just a few of the goodies shown above)? If you follow my blog you know I am a certified fitness trainer with my own business, training my clients over the web & privately in home.  You also know I love fashion and beauty so I have combined the two to make one lucky follower’s month of March even better.

No crazy follow a bunch of people and post pictures loop thingy on instagram, but you do need to follow my blog and if you are on instagram you need to follow me there (it will add another entry for your chances to win) You need to leave me a message here and on instagram with five words why you should win this goodie bag. The most creative will be picked by me of course. Now there are a lot of rules and regulations I have to follow, I did my research this giveaway is only open to US residences (except Alaska/Hawaii/PR/PO BOX) and you must be over thirteen years of age to enter. This giveaway is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with any of the labels pictured above. I will announce the winner on or around Friday March 20th 2015.

Have fun with this and I can’ t wait to read your entries! PS…the follow button is at the very bottom  of the page, hit the plus sign.

XOXO

I definitely lost myself in these alleyways. San Francisco, (love my city) the Mission District  which is home to these amazing art alleyways  (all throughout the Mission) Balmy and Clarion Alley are the most popular with unique stories to tell.  CAMP was inspired by Balmy alley and at the time two of the founders were living in Clarion alley.

 There is only a few photos of myself as I was so focused on the art that day (what was I thinking?) & I am already on top of the newest trends according to Vogue with my sophisticated boot cut jeans (Hudson). Anyway, don’t focus on me… just the amazing art! Please note yourself: I had on open toe heels which you can’t see in my photo..  open toe shoes and dirty alleyways not a good mix (ick) I stepped on a chicken bone & all kinds of other things I don’t want to share… but don’t let that stop you,  If you make it to the city it’s a must see! Big thanks to my best friend for taking awesome photos of me!

XOXO

“Screw the 14th, I love him everyday”

 I do love this month for all the vibrant colors, especially the pinks and that ravishing red, Oh, and all that phony love that gets thrown around.  I tend to think that Valentines Day is for children and our best girlfriends, of course its fun to do sweet things for each other. Otherwise I call this day a Hallmark holiday. For some this day may have real meaning and good for you…that is super sweet, but I expect to be loved all year-long (and I am..thank goodness)

 A wrap up of my crazy week, tulips and coffee in my newly re-lined Louis Vuitton vintage bucket bag (bad idea I know). Raspberry macaroons, a lovely gift from a client and as you can see waiting to eat them was not in the cards for me.  The sun shines bright today and the weather is will be close to 75 degrees.  I am loving the light pouring in our tiny home this morning, as I lounge around in my favorite lace Aerie bralette… to all of you, have a super sweet weekend.

XOXO

Easy Going

unnamed (34) So simple, so classic, it’s brilliant! H&M did a great job revisiting the white button-up shirt. Designing this shirt slightly longer with slits on the side for a unique look. Pair this cozy cotton shirt with a clean-cut pair of pants or how I styled it with torn beat up Joe’s boyfriend jeans. Sticking with the bare modern essentials, light pink polish on my fingers, red classic lips (Love this shade – DuWop Private Red) black vintage leather booties, finished the look with tortoise cat-eye shades.

Sometimes wish I had an office job so I could be dressed up all day. I had to end my lunch date, rush in the door and tear off all my fabulousness in a hurry for stretch pants, sports bra and sneakers (oh the life of a personal trainer) so I could train my next few clients. Wait, wait… totally forget I said the above, there is no way I would want an office job.

Soon I plan to put up more workouts, they will be password protected videos. Just be sure to follow the instructions listed. I will have some exciting news (well at least I think its exciting) to share and a giveaway coming up. I am busy with my own personal clients which takes a lot of my time (so thankful for that!) doing my best and enjoying slow blogging (according to stats it’s the best way to blog and keep readers) and try to make this site a little different from every other lifestyle, fashion, fitness, health and decor blog because as Coco Chanel once stated…

“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different”

Time for Tea & Tulips

Who has the time you ask? The answer is really… we all do!

I am sure most of you know what I am talking about…we stress out over how little time we actually have in our days instead of actually doing something about it. If you are like me you wonder where the hell the day went?? how on earth did the time fly by and how do I make it slow down?!?

Well, there is not a way to slow down time unless one of you have some sort of super human awesome power to control time and if you do have that power (or any other power) please send me an email stat! What we can do is consciously carve out a few minutes in our days for tea & tulips, coffee & chocolate, popcorn & phone calls, couch time with your cat…. I am sure you are getting the idea here.

Think of the reward, it would so be worth it. A moment to breathe, quiet time…beautiful us only time! How much happier and stress free we could all be! Ironically, this tea and tulip time was a few moments I had on Tuesday & I was so busy I could not post until today. That made the wheels in my head churn. So, I made myself slow down, hot coffee next to me (decaf) and write.  I enjoy writing, it is relaxing for me, I carved out ten minutes to add this darling post. Already I feel like I can tackle the world (well, at least the day) and yes on my tippi toes!
