not everyone wants to get tattooed but how fun are these fake ones? even though I'm fairly tattooed, I still love playing around with temporary ones with my girls. In fact, I wore the small gold heart  on my temple for a few days. some people were horrified but most loved it and lola and carmen thought it was cool.  And it's a great way to change things up a bit without committing to real ink, piling on makeup, or getting a haircut.

get into the groove

i finally had some time to sit at my sewing machine and design a pair of pants. above is lola giving me her opinion about the fit, performance, and overall aesthetic of them. i'm trying to make something that performs for girls on the go, whether it's running, stretching, or dancing, i want to create something that is made well, performs well, will sell at a decent price point, and look cool, you know? so we'll see how it goes.

I took a break from designing active wear for a bit but have started creating individual pieces again. Above is the roam free tank I designed last summer which pairs nicely with pretty much any sport you can think of. Carmen wears it for ballet. I recently designed a pair of pants/leggings which I'll share tomorrow. Maybe I'll have a full collection by the end of the year, yes?? Or not.

throw ya arms up

arms. probably the only part of my body I have issues with. I'm not going to lie, I'm over 35 and have that jiggle in my arms, you know what I mean? I constantly hike and run and do mini workouts through out the week so I have toned legs, a toned booty, and slowly starting to get some abs but my arms need work. i have been reading up on exercises specifically targeting this and here are the four I'm starting with. As the weeks go by and I get "too comfortable" with it, I'll switch it up. I'm using 10 pound weights and don't plan on increasing the pounds as my goal is to tone and strengthen and not end up with overly jacked up triceps. 

here's my plan:

bicep curl
overhead shoulder press
tricep kickback
upright row

3 sets of 15 reps for each exercise.

"people often dismiss the importance of cute gym clothes as superficial - it's not! Studies have proven that what we wear alters how we feel, so put some effort into your workout look. You'll be way more excited to get out there and start exercising."

What a great quote. People often confuse "put some effort into your workout look" with "spend lots of cash" but in reality, there is so much rad and amazing athletic wear to choose from for people on a budget. I'm always looking for great little athletic wear brands to feature for both children and adults, so if you would like to be featured please send me an email:

Calia by Carrie

Super stoked about this new line of activewear from Carrie Underwood. To be honest, I didn't even know she had designed a collection until I saw something pop up on Instagram about it. The price point is great (especially when you have a budget like me) and it looks to be made well. I ordered a pair of the floral tights and a few tanks so I'll let you know how they perform. You can check out the website here:
