New York, New York with Sole Society

The nights are finally cooling down in NY and I couldn’t be happier. Fall is my favorite time of year. Really, I wait all summer for it to come. Sometimes I can’t enjoy summer because I’m so excited for September. Now that it’s almost here I’m constantly tearing pages out of magazines for all things fall. Especially anything I can bake with pumpkins and spices. I recently  found these super transitional booties by Sole Society. You can’t beat the price with them being under $90! They will get me through August and will be the perfect bootie for dresses, jeans, etc.

I have to tell you guys the craziest NYC moment I had with cabs. This picture reminds me of it. When my 3 kids were 3 years old and younger, (Davis 3 1/2, Gwen 17mths, Chloe 3 months) I flew to Arizona by myself and then flew back with my awesome brother in law, Mark. Anyways we were in the taxi cab heading to Manhattan from JFK airport.  I have theeee worst motion sickness. I mean sometimes I get sick while I’m driving myself to Target. I got so sick in the cab I started throwing up. So, I was yelling at the cab driver to roll down the windows because they were locked. We quickly realized he didn’t speak english. So as I was  straddling over Chloe’s infant car seat trying to get my head out the window, Gwen and Davis were  frantically screaming. The cab driver decided it was best to slam on his breaks in the middle of the freeway. As he’s doing this my head is out the window (throwing up) and I realized all the cars behind us were  swirving and slamming on their breaks because we stopped right in the middle of (60+mph) traffic.  I seriously thought I wouldn’t live to see another day. Anyways, Mark started yelling at him, made him speed up again and I promised myself right in that moment that I would never ever ever  take my 3 precious angels in a cab again. To this day I have lived up to that promise. We take  the train, UBER or a black car when we are with my kids. I’m so thankful our angels protected us that day!

Lole Activewear + giveaway

Nichole is back with a few more of her fitness tips. Read this about her weight loss secret, the cardio sandwich workout. You can use the strengthening moves below during  your next workout.

Being consistent in your workouts pays off way more than working out like crazy every once in a while. We get overwhelmed thinking about getting that workout in, then we don’t do it! But even if its a quick run and some strength, ‘showing up’ will keep your routine going even on your busy days!

I went into the Lole store in SoHo and fell in love with this brand I’m wearing here. Lole stands for ‘Live Out Loud Everyday’ and the brand helps you do just that! The tops and workout gear transition so easily to the street, I’m never getting out of them. The cover-up top here has gotten me so many compliments, I’m getting another in another color. The capris are the best for us drowned-rat girls who sweat a lot while working out. Bonus: Those mesh insets are so flattering! If you’re in NYC visiting or if you’re in the NY area make sure and check out the LOLE store in SoHo. It’s such an experience.

Lole just launched their fall workout and lifestyle line and it’s awesome. When you’re cute in your active wear, you’ll look forward to any workout, long or short, and you won’t have any excuse to put it off that day.
Here are 5 of my favorite moves to do after a quick 30-minute run (or a long run, if you’re needing to hash through a lot in your head!) They workout more than one area at a time and can finish off your workout feeling great!
1.Downdog / Spider - This post-run move gives you a stretch along with a great power-up to your upper body. Get into a good Downdog pose, hold, then keeping your arms straight, power forward and lift one leg meeting your knee. Alternate sides, do 20 reps.
downward dog
2. Shoulder Pull-Aparts with Resistance Band - Packing a tiny resistance band in your luggage will give you access to a great move or two while traveling! Keep your elbows glued  to your side and starting with your hands in front, moving outward as far as you can go. Keep the resistance moving outward and slowly back in. 20 reps.
3. Halos - Start with upper arms parallel to the ground, the weight in your hands higher than your forehead. Keeping the ‘L’ formation as best as you can, let the hand weight circle around your head in one direction for 20 reps, then the other for another 20. This will work triceps well, along with shoulders, lats, and everything!
4. Bicep Calf Raises - Start with arms straight down by your side, and as you do a bicep curl, lift up on your toes. Don’t neglect your calves in your workouts! It prevents injury and shapes your leg gently! Do 20 reps.
5. Donkey Lift with Curtsey - Lift leg like shown, then while bringing that leg back down to the ground, cross it behind the grounded knee. This works your shoulders and back (and core if you hold your abs in tight!) as well as that lifting glute and hip! 20 each side
We are giving away $100 of Lole gear to one lucky winner! Enter below!

two looks with rag & bone/JEAN

I enlisted my SIL Maury this week to share a couple of her favorite looks wearing the rag & bone zipper jeans that are an exclusive to Nordstrom! Maury has great style that’s casual and comfortable. But really, Maury makes everything look amazing with those long locks and even longer legs. Fun fact: Maury is only 1 inch taller than me yet her legs start at my neck.:)
