Workout clothes all laid out and ready for me this morning!
I stayed up a little too late last night catching up on #thebachelorette but it was worth it?☺️
I know from experience that you have to DECIDE to make fitness part of your day. You have to PLAN your food and not leave it to chance. The ladies in my online challenge group that started Monday are going strong!! We all shared the main habit we wanted to create for ourselves and mine was a 5:00 wake-up goal. To be honest, I’ve not been perfect this week but my GOAL is there and I’m working towards it!! 5:00 is so early lol ?! I know how powerful it will be for me because I’ve done it before.
What habit do you want to make and you haven’t quite gotten there?

Shakeology – The Convenience Factor!
When I used to go on “diets” I, for some strange reason, gravitated towards tuna. In my mind it was one of my diet foods lol! Don’t even know where I got that idea and sure, tuna is fantastic in small amounts but not when you’re within 5 feet of any human…..mint please!! ??? Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with tuna, but it is mainly just a protein, with a few other benefits. But it was a “go-to”! Well, time teaches you lots of things and when the oh so wonderful Shakeology came into my life, I knew I was finally making a lifestyle change.
I no longer “diet” (thank God) but I do pay attention to what I put in my mouth. I read labels and stick to whole foods 80% of the time. My favorite thing about my Shakeology is that I can drink it in between spa clients, it keeps my tummy trim and I don’t smell like a fishery haha. I could have really used Shakeology when I was working at Nordstrom. I would be have days where I there was no possible way I was going to take a bite of anything. But having a healthy superfood shake…..would’ve been perfect.
Another huge convenience is with having kids! This superfood shake isn’t only good for adults….it is great for the kids as well. Since we have Vegan Shakeology, it really is a fool proof way to get them a daily dose of vitamins in a few short minutes. Then, they usually drink it while we are heading to an appointment or what not! So easy! I used to fool myself too. I would tell myself, “I’m giving my kids a totally balanced meal…everyday….”, ya right! There are so many times where in the busyness of life, the meals aren’t balanced. This allows me to pack in 70 different superfoods into my kiddos without them batting an eye, or complaining one bit. The Shakeology ingredients are no joke! See for yourself, take a look at them here! Oh and it is gluten-free. I always like to remind people of this.
My flavor of the day is vegan strawberry Shakeology with power greens, frozen blueberries, water and ice! Blend and go!! #366ers

Guess Apparel at Guess Online
Annual White Elephant party outfit and a date night with my guy. Got my workout in and I swear it was a mood changer for me today.
He found this outfit for me at Guess online (crazy good sale, btw). I love that he helps me dress in something other than yoga pants! ?

Women’s clothing are hard to come by as a mom cause we are always in crazy yoga pants mode so much of the time. I am usually fighting to have any semblance of femininity at home with two little crazies running around. I love getting out and dressing at least semi-fashionable. This little outfit is simple, cute and allows me to still transition back to mom mentality instantly! Oh, I I love Nordstrom Rack! Elbow patches, ripped knees and booties! Yay for a kid-free mommy morning. The fastest 3 hrs I’ve ever had!
- Sweater is from Brass Plum at Nordstroms.
- The black jeans are from TBD, Treasure and Bond at Nordstrom Rack.
- Booties are from Brass Plum at Nordstroms as well
- Gold watch is Michael Kors.

Nordstrom Rack Super Find
New #nikes from Nordstrom Rack are making me want to workout today.???? Matt snagged these, Nike Air Max 2015 shoes, for me and they were a steal!! My husband is the best at finding deals at Nordstrom Rack. Whether it is the main store or the Rack, he is always looking for deals. He wants me to feel good as I strive to do my best daily. It is so important to have support.
I worked at Nordstroms for over 8 years as a makeup artist. I love Laurie Mercier and was the counter manager when they first came to Seattle. I love everything about it. I love everything about Nordstroms, the lines they carry, the service, the training I was given. It is such a classy store in every sense of the word. It is what I pride myself over, I was trained by the best. Even the Nordstroms Cafe has the best food….and they have some healthy choices! One of my husband and my favorites is the NIÇOISE SALAD WITH SALMON! Click on the name to see the menu!
Whenever we go shopping, it usually revolves around a Nordstrom Rack. There is no better place for returns. My husband had a pair of jeans he had never worn, but we had removed the tags. We took them back and they accepted them and gave us a full cash refund!!
To be honest, I haven’t worked out much this week since I was nursing my strained neck (2 car accidents in a year) and my diet wasn’t as great as I wanted (late night peanut butter anyone?) but I was up this morning telling myself to just get it done! 30 minutes goes by so fast. New Nordstrom Rack, Nike Air Max workout shoes get me in the mode!
The compound effect of a daily routine adds up for the good but it can also add up for the bad. Review what your compounding effect is and tweak it if you aren’t going in the right direction. You deserve to look and feel your best ? Go check out a Nordstrom Rack!

Free People Clothing: My Style in Every Way
Free People clothing are soooo cute. Here’s my outfit:
- Free People Dress
- Forever 21 White Hand Bag!!!!
- Charles David – Wedge Heel
- Tom Ford Sunglasses
I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love Free People Clothing. It is definitely my favorite clothing boutique store right now. Yes, Nordstroms, my first true love, is still overall my favorite, because it has everything, but from a specialty boutique style, Free People is where it’s at. They also have great sales! I picked up this lovely dress for under $40!! That is a score in my book. It isn’t easy finding unique, individual pieces. I can pair this with flats, high heels, booties…you name it…it works!
So, if you are looking to go out on a date, with your spouse, significant other, work party or just want to be able to stroll around feeling amazing, go stop by and get a Free People dress!
I love being comfy, yet try to be stylish. This was a great outfit for walking Bellevue, feeling cute, and warm enough in the shade!
