New Workout, Music Suggestions and a $6 Dress!

Though I LOVE blogging I'm terribly inconsistent.  I'm trying to change that!  

Get Up & Go
Thanks to Shana from ColorBlind for taking these photos!

To make up for my lack of consistency here is a running routine made for the days when you have no time or energy but want to get a quick pick-me-up workout

First things first.  MUSIC.  Add this song to your playlist.  Total motivator.


Workout Routine:

1. Warm Up - Jog or walk for 5 minutes 
2. Run/Walk - Run full force (or at your own pace if you're a new runner) for 2 minutes then do a recovery walk for 1 minute.  Repeat for 5 rounds (15 minutes)
3.  Run/Walk - Repeat step 2 but change the ratio to running for 3 minutes and walking for 1.  Repeat for 5 rounds (20 minutes).
4.  Cool Down - Walk for 5 minutes
5.  BAM!  You've got a 45 minute workout DONE!

PS - I found this dress for $6.00!  I don't love the scalloped sleeves but am going to get those tailored to look more modern.  But the color and the lace are my FAVORITE!

My answer to everything hair related is to add accessories.  Sometime I look like a fool but tonight it happened to work!  

Hair Accessories


  1. The colour of that dress is phenomenal!! Looks amazing on you!

  2. $6? Awesome! The color looks fab on you!

  3. Hey! Thanks so much for following and for your lovely comment about my new blog style!

    I MUST try that workout. I'm a runner and that sounds absolutely awesome!

    Cute dress, too. Can't beat six bucks!



  4. Thanks so much for stopping by my site! That first picture of you is so great! Love the expression! (The other pics are great too of course!)

  5. Hey thanks for stopping by rws :) I am totally envious of your $6 dress purchase! lol I don't usually wear accessories in my hair, but I secretly wish I could. I just end up not ever doing it :P

    ALSO - nice cardio workout. especially if you are givin'er at full throttle when you run. Interval training is GREAT! I don't do enough of it

  6. Thank you for stopping by and for your nice comments. I love your blog and will now be following you. My photo is at the Las Vegas R&R which was my first marathon. Take care!

  7. That is a great deal for the dress! Such a beautiful color-one that can be paired with lots of other fun colors. I agree about the sleeves but I probably wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't mentioned them. The yellow clutch is really cute!

  8. I used to have a dress almost like that, when I was a teenager. That color makes hair, skin, and eyes look beautiful. It was the most versatile dress. It looks pretty on you. You will enjoy it!

  11. I have a confession, I already saw you in this dress on Shana's page and loved it! Good idea to alter it to your liking. A dress is only as good as its alterations. Whatever that means. I didnt realize you two had been friends for so long. Thats very cool. Glad you guys had some fun thrifting adventures.

  12. I love your hair with this dress! What are you going to do with the sleeves? cap sleeve or leave them long?
