What I'm Loving Lately

Adore Me, I'm obsessed... It's a lingerie subscription service (get your first set for only $25)

I've used this rose water spray a few times and I just reordered it, I forgot how much I love it!

Currently my three favorite mascaras 

I just ordered these shoe for trail runs and hiking, I cannot wait to break them in!
I have been seeing S'well water bottles everywhere lately! Well I did some research behind this product and found that it was a great cause to support and it's pretty easy on the eyes!

I recently started this book and I am almost about done with it. Has anyone read it? If you have, did you actually follow the tidying process?

This awesome quick cardio Watch Me Whip video is on my list to try ASAP!

Changing a duvet is probably one of the worst chores ever. But this technique has made it so simple and it actually works, I tried it last weekend!

I have been getting into having plants around the house and I can't wait to try this project this spring.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a happy hump day :)

Winter Workout Gear

Finding workout pants that are booth comfortable and flattering is one of my least favorite activities. If you have muscular legs and a small waist you may run into the problem that I have... A small is just a bit too tight on your legs but the mediums are far too loose on your waist. Under Armour's HeatGear Legging are one of my favorite types of leggings for winter workouts. They fit just right and you can get them on Amazon Prime, so if you need to return or exchange them, it's so simple! 

Long Sleeve Shirt: Gap, Similar, Similar, Cute Option
Hat: Target (old), Similar, Similar, Cute Option 
Fitbit Band: Amazon, Love this set
Necklace: Bip and Bop (use code WHITNEY for $5 off)
Phone Case: Amazon, Similar, Cute Option

Go-To Work Outfit

This is one of my typical office looks, simple and professional. Having a few key pieces, such as a great pencil skirt is the key to creating easy professional outfits. I also find it very important to find heels that are not only stylish but also comfortable enough to wear around the office for a full day. And these are an affordable pair that I love so much, I have actually repurchased them! When it's chilly out adding tights is a must! Also, I think it's important to keep you jewelry minimal in the office, I like to wear a necklace or earrings with a watch or simple bracelets, like this.

Skirt: Banana Republic (old), Similar, Similar
Heels: Target (my second pair), Similar, Similar, Cute Option

Old Jeans

I found these old jeans when I was reorganizing my dresser. I think a lot of my jeans with holes in them have made it to the very bottom of my drawer because I never wear them to work. But I love the fit, they are from the brand Vigoss via Amazon. I just started a new book so I have been in cleaning mode, it's called The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. I really want to implement the tactics in my life, I feel like in the past few years we have accumulated so much stuff!

Casual and Warm + My go-to Necklcae

I love this outfit because it is a combination of my current favorite pieces, like the vest that a I pick up last year on Black Friday or these boots, they are so comfy considering their height. And this Bip & Bop necklace that has been a repeat for the last couple weeks, I love how it goes with almost any outfit. When I wear pieces that I know I love I feel more confident. Do you ever feel that way too?

Vest: Jcrew Factory (old), Similar, Similar, Love this
Necklace: Bip&Bop (use code WHITNEY for $5 off at checkout)

Working out at Home


 I have never really been a fan of going to a gym. In college I went to the gym on a regular basis, I think the main reason I was able to make it stick in my routine was because it was conveniently located on campus. I would wear my workout clothes to class and hit the gym right after class then head back to my apartment.

As my life and views on fitness have changed, I've realized how much I love not going to the gym. When the weather is nice my favorite thing to do is get outside, even if it's as simple as a quick 20-minute walk over my lunch. During the winter months it can be a struggle finding the time to make it outside while it's still light out. I typically like to get a workout in directly after work and by that time it's too dark outside. When I am stuck inside I try to find fun inside workouts and Youtube is my go-to!

Here are my top five favorite home workouts:

2. HIIT treadmill workouts (we found a great treadmill on Craigslist for only $200)

3. Blogilates videos, she has so many!

5. Full Body Pinterest Workouts

I love workouts that you can do anytime and anywhere. The best part is that they are free and convenient. Do you have any favorite at home workouts? I would love to hear what they are!

The Warmest Coat Ever

I hope you all had an amazing New Year's Eve/Day, I welcomed 2016 with a sinus and ear infection, not exactly how I was hoping to start the new year. Luckily I was able to see my doctor yesterday and get some meds. This year I really did not set any new year's resolutions, but I think it's never too late... there is no reason why you need start your resolution on the first of the year or a Monday. 

Anyways, I wanted to share this incredibly warm coat with you all because it's on sale right now! This was on my Christmas list and my sweet mom got it for me. Living in Colorado it's surprising I didn't already own a coat like this, but now for those 20 degrees days I will have the perfect cozy coat. One thing that I didn't know it had and I was so happy to discover was, thumb holes! Finding thumb holes on a jacket or coat is like finding a $20 bill in your jeans when doing laundry... actually maybe like finding a $100 bill :)

Coat: Jcrew Factory (gifted from my mom and now on sale), Similar, Similar and great deal
Beanie: Target (old), Similar, Similar, Cute Option

Thanks for stopping by! Happy New Year!

Looking back at the blog in 2015

The best and most memorable thing of 2015 was hands down marrying my best friend and celebrating with our family and friends, see more photos here.

Original Post - probably my favorite outfit of the year!

So I originally planned on getting this post up yesterday, but that didn't happen because my mom and I painted my guest bedroom. I decided to go with Grey Owl by Benjamin Moore and it turned out great! It really brightened up the rather smaller room. In our guest bedroom we pretty much only have room for a queen bed, a nightstand, small bookshelf and a floor lamp... and it felt dark. I need to find a different grey for our master, possibly one that's a bit darker. I am thinking Benjamin Moore Nimbus, Silver Chain, or maybe Stonington Gray. Any other suggestions?

Anyways, I hope you all had any amazing 2015 and an even better 2016! On Saturday we have our last official Christmas with my mom's side of the family. I guess after that we have to take all of our Christmas decorations down :(  

Thank you as always for following along, I truly appreciate it!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
