Working It Out

fabletics gear

Lately I’ve been really feeling the fitness bug, which is honestly a miracle for me.  I’ve never been the girl who looooves to work out (I wish) but I do occasionally get spurts of enthusiasm for exercise and being fit…and this month happens to be one of those times.  I think one of the main motivators for me, aside from the idea of getting into better shape, has been my sudden influx of stylish, yet still functional, work out gear from FABLETICS.  I’m obsessed, to put it mildly.  I never really saw the point of buying cute work out clothes, because my Target yoga pants and old tank tops always seemed to do the trick, but I gotta say that wearing my gear from FABLETICS actually does give me a little confidence boost. I’m really into the LIMA CAPRI FOLD OVER PANT and SPORTS BRA (similar HERE), mostly because the pants suck me in exactly where I want them to, and the sports bra, though not for high impact stuff like running, is really comfortable and I even wear it just around my apartment when I don’t feel like going braless, which is always.


Hydration Day

Hydration day

When I found out that tomorrow, February 20th is national HYDRATION DAY I had to do a post.  For one, I’ve actually made it a goal in my life to drink more water one, because it’s good for your bod, and two because it’s the best thing you can do for your skin during the winter months.  Sure, I live in Southern California so I’m not exactly in the Polar Vortex, but it does get pretty dry sometimes and since dehydration can lead to fine lines and wrinkles, you’ve gotta nip it right in the bud.  Here are three of my favorite things to stay hydrated:

Bkr water bottle// I’ve found that having a super cute and environmentally friendly water bottle helps me actually remember to drink more water throughout the day and this version IS super cute.

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream Instense Hydration// To shed light on the importance of year-long hydration, Kiehl’s has teamed up with Fiji to celebrate February 20th as HYDRATION DAY, to educate customers about the effects of hydration, and dehydration on the skin.  They came out with their newest product, the Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration which was “torture-tested” under extreme conditions. It was tested 1.) In the arid climates of Phoenix, and 2.) On a group of avid swimmers, daily exposed to damaging chlorine.  Intense, for sure.  Oh, and in honor of Hydration Day, on February 20, Kiehl’s will offer its shoppers complimentary hydrating facials and Fiji water in store, no purchase necessary.

Avene Thermal Spring Water// I’ve been using this hydration spray for years. Seriously, it’s fabulous for travel, especially on planes, and does a great job to really soothe and soften the skin.
