Tis’ the time for…. SHOPPING

In Christmas, fashion, local shopping, Uncategorized On December 17, 2012 0 Comments

OH YES!
The time has come, I’m pretty sure that this is the lastweekend we have to reallyshop for our Mothers, Fathers, Friends, and Lovers. I have to admit…eeeeek, I have not even thought about it till now! Usually, I’m done by mid-December. Tis year procrastination has gotten the best of me.
Does ” I’m super busy” count?

If you are struggling looking for the perfect gift, I’ve got some great ideas below!

;

For the BETTY’S:

  1. Gorgeous silver hammered stackable rings. They are feminine, classic, and enhance any look. These rings are a product of Nadine Jewelry. These are gorgeous & at around $75 bucks, you cant go wrong. She works with recycled siver, rose gold, and gold. Any girl would absolutely rock these. Check out her ETSYSHOP
  2. Cuisinart handheld mixer. A perfect gift for anyone who likes shakes, smoothies, and just loves being in the kitchen. I thought I had just about everything I needed in my kitchen, until I received this as a gift, then I realized I was missing out all this time. I use it constantly. I used to ALWAYS have to bust out my big blender every time for 1 smoothie. Too much work. This makes my morning protein shakes LIKE A BOSS! At around $50 bucks, she’ll be stoked, and you didn’t brake the bank.
  3. Ok, california doesn’t exactly have snowy weather, but, who doesn’t love a great BEANIE!? We are loving this BURTON beanie. They have got so many styles, it’s hard to choose from. Remember, color is in right now, so dare to be bright. Especially if this chick takes off to the mountain in the winter. Color is the THING! At just $25 dollars, this makes a great stocking stuffer!
  4. These Kerastase products continue to win ALLURE’S best and favorite products award. Learn more about their amazing and innovative technology on their website. These are a great gift! Being a stylist myself, I know, very well, the importance of using the best products for your hair. What girl doesn’t want to protect their hair from blowdrying and other heat styling. Nobody wants dry hair, right? These thermique products ensure full spectrum protection while smoothing and add nutrients to weakened hair. It’s hard being a girl people! We can’t always buy nice products for ourselves, it gets expensive. So, I am positive any babe would freak when they see this wrapped or in a stocking. If you live anywhere close to SASSOON Beverly Hills, we are offering karestase gift packages for a great discounted price for the holiday! Stop by!
  5. Baby its cold outside!!!! This awesome NORTH FACE running jacket is super light while adding protection from wind and cold weather . If we don’t have the proper gear, it really does make it hard to want to exercise outside. I have some great Northface gear that I’ve had forever. The quality is impeccable, you wont regret it!
  6. Ahhhh, Gift this amazing wine! I’m a HUGE fan of Santa Barbara Winery. Their wines are at a great price point and are exquisite! Every girl loves a great bottle of wine. My personal favorite is their pinot noir.
  7. Last but not least, this could be one of the best gift ideas ever! The POLAR heart rate monitor watch. Best gadget for a FIT girl! Improves fitness level by monitoring what heart rate zone you are in, cals burned ,and soooo much more! Worth the price. Invest in health!

Boy oh boys…They need love too;) I actually really love to shop for boys. I’ve come up with a few options whether it be for your man, dad ,brother or friend. Let the shopping begin!

He doesn’t have to be an avid backpacker to appreciate a great travel pack. I think every guy should have one. It’s multi use, they can be for camping, backpacking, traveling light ( no suitcases) , or used for long hikes. REI has a wide variety of awesome packs ranging in affordable prices. Hurry and take advantage of the free shipping!

NFL Sunday ticket is mos def on most guys wish list. C’mon, obvious. He will freak if you surprise him with this gift. A football lovers dream. Something to think about ladies!

Looking for a great stocking stuffer? STANCE socks are it!
STANCE is dedicated to the spirit of individuality with a design philosophy that believes in expression and function. Super unique and creative, with the best fit. Made with the highest quality materials. Check them out! They’ve got some great looks for the Betty’s too!

I’ve got news for you ladies…guys secretly, are soooo into their hair. They tend to just used whatever we’ve got in the shower, mostly because they just never know what brand to purchase. They don’t know what is good or what suits their hair type best.Honestly I think some guys are just a ill embarrassed to buy hair products for themselves. With the new Kerastase Homme mens line you can’t go wrong. These products provide strength and density for the specific needs of men’s hair. Maintaining hair mass is the concern of 70% men. * The first dual action hair maintenance system designed to leave hair feeling and looking stronger, thicker and refreshed.

I’ve never seen a NIXON watch I didn’t love. For men and women. These watches are of the highest quality, and come in so many different styles. This is the gift.

Last but not least…if your guy is into camping…this is the coolest ! A portable burner by JINYU. Small, compact , and with a sup sleep design. Something different and will definitely show that you were thinking outside the box!

Happy shopping beauties! I gotta get to it myself! We only have a week left! Ahhhhhhhh

at 5 am to the gym and be all “can you just take a few good ones of

me flexing?” haha….um no.

 

Check out todays packed lunches at work! The chickies I work with are really health conscious so we all try to support each other to not eat the damn crap that sometimes lands in the staff room.

And then there is always someone who will order amazing looking skinny fries.  I have to constantly remind myself that there is nothing skinny about them and  since I couldn’t enjoy them in my mouth, I took a picture with them. This is completely normal.

I worked out this morning because I knew I would be missing my thursday ritual of Zumba at 8:30 p.m. I work at 9:00 a.m. on thursdays so I prefer to work out in the evening after the day is done. I sleep really well after that class because it KICKS MY ASS!

This is my good friend Jules, and tonight we’d made plans to have a girls night of dinner and drinks at her fabulous Sherman Oaks house. I hadn’t seen her in weeks and it was definitely time to catch up. This chick is a rockstar and yes…I did give her that amazing spock haircut. She rocks it.

I took a few pics of her fab house, but unfortunately my pics don’t do it justice. She’s got such a great sense of design.

Did I mention she’s an outstanding cook. Our dinner was quite simple but Honestly It was the  best salmon I have EVER had!

Roasted asparagus over baby arugula and Salmon drizzled with a little of this blood orange oil that is only found in oakland. (Every time she goes out there to visit a friend, she comes back with a whole case of them.) I got lucky. She sent me home with a bottle:) yessssssssssssss!!! I cherish this;)

Then, THIS HAPPENED:

yes, you are not mistaken…right outta the jar into the next jar…and then into the next. cow status.

After a couple spoonfulls we looked at each other with that look of ” omg, this is sooo EFFING good right now” (you know the look). And then, it was over.

She took the jar away.:)

I was exhausted by 9p.m. The day felt productive, busy and was so happy to laugh ,eat , and drink the night away. Willy was at home waiting as usual listening to any sound at the door. So anxious..Checked the mail..and yeay, my new fave magazines came in the mail! What are some of your favorites?


Lovely day in LA.

Good morning fit friends:)

Up at 5 and got a lot done! I work at 9:45. Hit the gym with some positive energy this A.M., because I knew I was coming home after to enjoy a yummy breakfast. This race coming up is getting me really amped to get up and train. Every morning I recieved an email from the Spartan Race trainer who sends out what the WOD will be for that particular day. I actually look foward to them now because since starting this training I am feeling much stronger and seeing some results!F YEAYYYYYYhhhh! If you tend to be the type of person that lacks self motivation, I swear, sign up for a race, challenge…anything that will set off that spark to prove to yourself that you can handle business! It really does help to set goals for yourself. Start small, and more often than not, you will astonish yourself with your drive towards these accomplishments. Tell people what you are planning to do so that it helps to keep you accountable. I don’t know about you but, I don’t like being the girl who says “oh yeah, I never ended up doing that…It was jussssst…ummm.busssssy? .” Yeah whatever with the excuses.

At home Willy was waiting for me. Freaking out knowing I would take him for his morning treck. He was so damn happy to hit the trail tis morning, he could hardly contain himself…
It’s been a bit harder lately to get outta bed, and I think it has to do with the fact that the weather has been getting rrrrreeeeaaaallllll cozy  and nothing sounds better than being in bed snuggly. So, I’ve been making sure pack my lunch for work the night before so that I have extra time in the morning to get stuff done!
My luch today was nothing short of fabulous. Really clean but tasted really great! Especially knowing that everything was fresh and that you’re not just putting shit in your body.
