My First Labor Day

My First Labor Day

I can't believe it is September already - Labor Day is this weekend!  Where has Summer gone?!  You know what also flies by?  My boys' birthdays.  I can't believe that my youngest, my baby, turned 8 years old 2 weeks ago. Pregnancy Memories I loved being pregnant.  With my oldest son, weeks 8 through 11 weren't "ideal" as I was super tired and slightly nauseous, but once 2nd trimester came around, I was good as gold!  I started to show a bit more at this point so I didn't just look like this … [Read more...]

Fluidity at Home Barre Giveaway!

Fluidity Barre 4th Position

I've been intrigued by barre since it came to the forefront a few years back as "the new way to tone and sculpt".  The Lotte Berk Method was actually created back in 1959 by a former ballerina (Lotte Bark).  In 1972 the first Lotte Bark Method Studio was opened in New York City. Dancers develop their strength and flexibility using a wall-mounted ballet bar and their own body weight.  The Fluidity Bar (below) helps you to achieve a dancer's body in the comfort of your own home - and it is … [Read more...]

Wantable Style Edit

Reveal and review #2 of Wantable's Style Edit is underway.  I received this box shortly after I returned from our family vacation and was excited to possibly add some new pieces to my wardrobe.  Here's what I unboxed! SUNKISSED APRICOT DRESS: OMG - I can't even begin to tell you what my face looked like when I first saw this dress.  The color is not me at all.  It was all wrinkled, but I can't blame the dress for that.  I decided to keep an open mind and tried it on.  OMG. I tried, … [Read more...]

It’s That Time of Year: Hurricane Preparedness

Hurricane Preparedness

With Hurricane Erika looming in the Atlantic, it is about time we spoke about hurricane preparedness.  Living in Florida, it is a reality that every year from June 1 through November 1 is "Hurricane Season" - and I am unfortunately not speaking of the delicious beverage that bears the same name. During the first few years living here in the Sunshine state, I heard about hurricanes and I believe we may have gotten some rain and winds but thankfully nothing too severe.  Then came … [Read more...]
