Leawood Cyclebar’s 1st Birthday Bash + Health Update

I’m excited to share a little update on my 2018 good health and weight loss journey with y’all on this Monday morning. We are 6 weeks into the new year and I am happy to say that I am down 10 lbs since my first post which i shared with you all 5 weeks ago. I have continued to eat well and eat smaller portions, though I still indulge & honestly probably a little more than someone who is trying to lose weight really should. Along with that I’ve been going to Cyclebar in Leawood three to four days a week. Don’t get me wrong, 10 lbs down in 6 weeks is great and I’m so happy with those results as I know it very well could have been much less. These next 6 weeks though I really want to give a little more effort by really reallywatching my sugar and carb intake and start going to Cyclebar four to six times a week. Cyclebar in Leawood is celebrating their one year anniversary this month and they are doing something so fun and completely free to non members. this birthday bash event is coming at such the right time for me and it will definitely make it easy for me to bump up my weekly class attendance.

Tuesday Shoesday {Target Edition}

My most popular and still my most visited blog post from 2017 is this Target/Steve Madden Dupe post. With that being said I wanted to be sure and share a round up of my favorite Target spring 2018 new shoe arrivals. Target has no problem creating designer dupes, but let’s get one thing straight, unless you’re buying something straight off the fashion week runway  everything is a dupe. it is truly all just a trickle down effect from designer to designer. in my opinion the only difference with Target creating dupes compared to other brands or retailers is that Target does it right and not only do they do it right but they do it at an affordable retail cost.

Elbow Ruffle Sweater + New Favorite Color

Isn’t this elbow ruffle detail so fun? If you’ve followed my blog or Instagram this year you’ll know I’ve been pretty obsessed with ruffles. Basically any sweater or top I buy has some sort of ruffle detail so any time I find a  unique take on this trend I just have to have it.  Not only is the elbow placement so different and cute, but you guys, this pearl pale blue color is to die. I just love how it reminds me of spring and the warmer months ahead but yet it isn’t a bright and loud pop of color all up in your face. ya know?

Fav Statement Earrings + How I keep them organized & displayed

I love a good statement accessory whether it be a bag, shoes, necklace or especially a pair of beautiful statement earrings. I have a slight obsession with statement earrings but I’m actually pretty proud of myself for doing a major purging session of all my jewelry over the holidays. It felt so good to get rid of old pieces that were falling apart or pieces I simply just didn’t wear anymore. I also better organized my jewels and displayed them in a way that’s not only makes it easier to look through when styling an outfit but is also aesthetically pleasing.  Keep your scroll to see some of my favorite statement earrings + how I keep them displayed and organized.

My Current Nightly Skin Care Routine

{my NIGHTLY skin care routine}

as promised today I’m sharing part 2 of my skin care routine detailing out everything I do and use in the pm. fair warning, my nightly routine might seem like a lot and to be honest I probably spend more time taking off my make up and caring for my skin than i actually do putting on my make up. however, I do truly believe that all of these steps are totally worth the extra time for healthy skin in the long run.
