Pool Days

Happy Monday!  How are your resolutions holding up these first few days of the new year?  Most of us are probably dreading this first day back to work or school…otherwise known as the daily routine.  Well, as much as we can, let’s challenge ourselves to make this a fresh start and look at this new work/school month with a positive attitude, one week at a time.  Instead of eating lunch at your desk, go someplace new for lunch (and eat something different!), instead of following the same workout regime as before, try a new class, jog outside instead of at the gym, or go to a different neighborhood to jog.  Of course this is all much easier said than done but if we encourage each other and change up the routine, it’ll make this Monday and future Mondays to come a lot easier to wake up to.

And if you’re still lingering on vacation time, as I may be this particular morning, you may just find yourself perusing through your vacation photos.  Here are some more from Kauai – enjoy!


Lazy afternoons by the pool.  One of the best ways of exercise during pregnancy is definitely swimming and this is something I did every day in Kauai.

My upcoming beach vacation has me thinking about flat sandals…so many choices out there!  I’d like to get a pair of neutral sandals.  Do you like any of the above?  Please share with me your favorites!

Lady Meets Rocker Chic





Good Morning!  Here we are starting a brand new week.  How was everyone’s weekend?

It’s been very cold this past week (well, cold for California that is) and to change things up a bit, I decided to beat the cold with this Rebecca Taylor Tweed Moto Vest.  With an off-center zipper, leather trimmings, and all over tweed, this vest is super chic and a great addition to my closet.  Expect to see this vest many times on the blog!  Can’t wait to wear it with a silk blouse and leather leggings for an even more rocker chick style.

We put up the Christmas tree over the weekend and decorated the house with lights and small ornaments.  It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas!  The holidays are so much fun and I love sharing festive moments with family and friends.  Next up, writing the Christmas cards!  Do you and your loved ones/friends have any traditions you do together during the holidays?

Have a fabulous week and thanks for stopping by the blog!  xoxo
