let’s get fit – 2015

I’m starting to think about goals for 2015 and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is at the top of my list.  I am  focusing  on being strong and active.  lululemon has made being active– EASY! The quality, fit and look give me the ability and confidence to transition from errands with my kids to the gym. It’s a lifestyle brand that you can wear all day long. You can use these pieces interchangeably  with your warddrobe. Like this Yogi Crew Sweater I’m obsessed with. I throw it on over everything I wear to the gym. I also love it with my skinny jeans. Get your lulu in time for Christmas! Order today .

Happy Holidays!



lululemon for the holidays

We’ve been gearing up for the holidays, finishing up our last minute errands before we take a few days to spend with our families. The new Yogi Crew sweater made its way into our travel bags keeping us warm and cozy this holiday season! I paired my Yogi Crew sweater under my NorthFace jacket, Nike’s and lululemon leggings. It’s the perfect way to stay warm and comfortable. Have you bought the MZ Wallace large metro bag  yet? It’s still the best travel bag I own!

How do you wear your lulu? Last day for lululemon holiday shipping is today, hurry!

Holiday Best with Nordstrom

We’re in the home stretch..one week till Christmas! The next few days are packed with holiday parties and thanks to Nordstrom, I’m prepared. I have to say I’m pretty obsessed with this Tadashi lace gown! It’s so easy to wear and really comfortable. I also love that it’s not your typical black or red holiday dress. Instead, the perfect deep navy blue.





1. I’m crazy about this NIKE dri-fit top for running and working out. The ‘Pro-Hyperwarm’ zip top will keep you warm and dry from start to finish.
2. A LIPSTICK POUCH is so genius! Keep your favorite lipstick in this trusty pouch and use the little mirror on the back side to apply. It’s a great gift too!
3. These go-to booties from Sam Edelman are so good! I love the seams and the comfort. The price is right on POINT!
4. HOBO wallets keep me organized and are very fun to hold as a wallet or a clutch. This one is on sale for the holidays.
5. Jo Malone fragrances are now my absolute favorite. The Nectarine honey smells so fresh and so good. I get asked what I’m wearing whenever I wear it.
6. Red lips are a must right now. I love the color by MAC  “all fired up” It is the perfect shade.
7. These Nike running shoes have been on my wish list for awhile. I just realized that they are selling out fast. Grab a pair while you can.
8. These Free People booties are so fun and versatile. I love a good gold shoe. These are as comfortable as they are cute.

9. This check print cape is everything!! I love it so much.

10. This contrast fleece is exactly what I’ve been looking for. I need all the layers I can get out here in NY. This is super snuggly.

Minted $200 giveaway

Minted is the obvious choice for personalized cards, especially around the holidays! I love how my cards turned out this year using their foiled press. I totally procrastinated this year. Thankfully Minted is more on top of things that me, and my cards were printed and to my door within 48 hours!

It’s simple. I loaded these two images onto Minted.com:

World Market: Toys for Tots

A few years ago while training in my garage, my friend/client Hillary gave me the best idea for Christmas. Give your kids four categories while making their wish list: want | need | wear | read. This simple idea is the greatest thing to happen to me as a mom. What I found in my home is my kids can easily list 10 things under want, wear and read and usually have to ask me what they “need”. Our need list has quickly become our favorite part of the season. This year we chose World Market to buy gifts for kids who are truly in need. I love all the retro toys we found reminding me of my own childhood. My girls had the best time deciding which toys would be the most fun to donate to Toys For Tots.


Clothes are by Mini and Maximus! I’m obsessed with this line of cool kids wear with a positive message. My favorite is the anti-bullying tops like Poppy has on.

Goldie’s shoes are from AKID Brand. Love them! IMG_2420SHOP WHAT WE BOUGHT BELOW:

I LOVE getting dressed up for the holidays. I found the perfect black pencil dress from Nordstrom. I’m really excited about this holiday look because it’s the perfect little black dress and it’s under $100!! I can dress it up for the holidays and still wear it in the new year. It’s stretchy and the material is thick.  Make sure to order one size up. It also comes in 4 other colors.
