Hey guys! How are y’all!? My cleanse is over and I’m back to share my very special BORN day with you! Proud to say that it’s my last year of my 20′s! The big 29.
Someone told me yesterday that once you hit thirty, to watch for a shift. That I will definitely will feel a difference. Whatever the f*#k that’s supposed to mean. Al I know is, that I feel FANTASTIC! I say BRING IT 30! I have a good feeling in my belly right now with all the good vibes coming my way for the year.

This morning I woke up super early. Not kidding, like 4:30. Waking up is my favorite part of the day.

I’ve got great news! I finally learned to make and post videos! I’m such a dork. Please excuse the not-so-cuteness.
You’re getting me fresh faced today chicks!
This video is totally armature, but I wanted to share with you guys, my favorite circuit work out.
It’s quick, effective, and the best part is, that you can do it right in your living room before getting ready for work. Sometimes my schedule is so crazy that I can’t set apart much time to hit the gym, so these type of workouts are best to get that heart rate up.
Work your way up to doing this 2-3 times and you’ll thank me;)

I got a sweet morning surprise this morning at work… My mom stopped by the salon to say hi, and brought me a cute little bag of goodies. Including a really great night cream I’ve been eyeing by ROC.

Of course mid morning, I snacked on some yummy raw trail mix from home.

Today, I was actually glad to have a super slow day because I got to play all day! Mom came, then 2 of my great girlfriends came, I loved it! Gennina brought baby Joseph, who is sooooo good btw! Such a happy baby, never cried once, all day!

I gave them both haircuts, and we cracked up for like 3 hours! Luckily there was no one else downstairs working, so we got the whole floor to ourselves!

They took out to lunch to this great Italian cafe across the street from the salon called Il Tramezzino. It was sooooo good!
We shared a great tuna chopped salad.
A panini with baked Brie,tomatoes, arugula, and some other goodness
And another panini with buffalo mozzarella, prosciutto, tomato
Big ol’ CHEAT day for me today kids.

Bread all over the place, not to mention the dessert we shared.

Tiramisu…oh yeah. So worth it. Give in a little;)

My amazing co works took me to dinner! My favorite local Argentinian grill, LALA’s is where it’s at!
Bomb food and sangria!

They have a great outdoor patio with heat lamps, so it was super cozy.
My carb-o-load didn’t stop at lunch, the bread baskets and chimichurri just kept on comin’.
Once everyone arrived, we ordered empanadas for everyone to share. (Probably my favorite food of all time).
I ordered a skirt steak with salad. It was out of this world. I haven’t had red meat since the cleanse and I could tell my craving was gnarly. Lol. I was like an animal, I could smell that shit coming right outta the oven!

Thanks to everyone who made my day super special! Love you all!

Now…..what to do for Super Bowl Sunday???hmmm…..
