Me vs Cough & Cold

Being sick is a lame, LAME game.  UGH.  

I've been a terrible blogger and athlete over the last few days.  Double UGH.

Last night I taught a spin class and actually felt a tiny bit better until I woke up this morning and found that my head cold has moved south to a cough.....BOOO.

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger right?  

Does anyone believe in getting the FLU shot?  I'm on the fence.  I'm a bit skeptical.

Anyway, I'm a HUGE fan of accessories.  I love plain outfits with a wild accessory to complete a look.  To me it's like a gift wrapped with a gorgeous bow.  

Today with my snotty nose, terrible man-like cough and sneezy self I decided to add a bit of accessory excitement to my outfit.  

PS - Nail polish clearly makes me happy too.

PPS - I got a Liebster Blog award from Carrie at Shrinking Carrie!  How sweet!

Liebster means "beloved" in German and showing love and support is what this award is all about.

The rules of winning this award are the following:

1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.

2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment at their blog.

3. Post the Award on your blog.

4. Enjoy the love of some of the most supportive people on the Internet!

Here are my top five blog picks:

This Colorado Gal is worth a read.  She is honest, vulnerable and extremely interesting!

This spit fire has INCREDIBLE taste in music and just won my recent giveaway.

I heart this girl and think her life adventures are fascinating.  If she lived closer I would TOTALLY want to hang out with her....not sure if she'd want to hang with me though....haha!

Jenn's Adventures
Jenn has AMAZING workouts and writes about thought provoking subjects.  Totally a superstar.

Need I say more?  She runs for carbs....who doesn't LOVE carbs?  She does a rocking job balancing life.  I want to be that good!

Happy Hump Day!

I'm watching Modern Family tonight.  What will you be watching?


  1. Hooray, thanks!! (And now, thanks for providing me with MORE blogs to stalk!!)

  2. I got the giftcard that you sent me! Again thank you sooo much - I'm really glad that you enjoyed my playlist :)

  3. Sorry about the cough, yuck!! Yes to Modern Family (I have yet to see an episode that didn't totally rock). And thanks for the love!! Love your blog too Sarah and I hope one day to be as fashionable as you!!!

  4. Try making yourself a pot of grated ginger/lemon tea with a bit of honey stirred in. It will soothe your cough, promise.

    Hope you feel better soon.

  5. Get well! If it's dry try Delsym; if it's productive double your water intake and try plain Robitussin.
    Hot toddy before bed with local honey.
    - your friendly neighborhood pharmacist ;)

  6. Hope you feel better soon!!

    I'm all about the accessories =)

    And the flu shot? No thanks! I part of the group that has never had a flu vaccine and has never gotten the flu. And I have issues with vaccines in general...

    LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog picks!

  7. I am definitely against flu shots -- for soooOOooOooo many reasons, but mostly because I'm terrified of needles [quiver] I hope you feel better soon girlie... being sicky is sucky!! :( OH! And definitely try making that tea Elle shared on her blog--it seriously sounds like the cure you're looking for!

    Thank you SO much for awarding me the Liebster--I recently discovered it (like yesterday;) on the internets, and feel honored to be on your top five! You're makin' me blush with your compliments--you are beyond awesome! I can't wait to post about this:)

    Get some rest girlie, and don't feel guilty if you're couch-bound for a couple days--your health is important!

  8. I've never had a flu shot, so I can't really say. While it may help you not get the flu later, it won't help you feel better now and I know that some people get a little sick after getting the shot, while their bodies get used to it being in their system. Also, I think you may still be susceptible to some strands of it. I don't think it can hurt though! Hope you feel better soon. Love all your bracelets!

  9. Flu shot...yes, yes, and more yes. I am a total advocate of vaccines and I say the more the merrier! Meagan above is right, though. The flu shot will not help you now but it prevents all the pukey-ness of the flu if you happen to get it later! I also must say that I have gotten the flu shot every year for as long as I can remember and not once have I gotten sick after it. (From the shot.)

    Anywho, if you have a sore throat I heard that whiskey, lemon juice, and honey are good for it. It's worth a try! :)

    Feel better soon!


  10. I hope you are feeling better soon! Bling therapy is definitely acceptable I feel :)

  11. Feel better soon Sarah! I haven't had a flu shot since third grade and I got the flu that year so no flu shot for me!

    Thanks so much for the award! My husband is going to be excited especially since his family is German. I would totally hang out with you in real life and if we share the same shoe size we would be in trouble!

    Have a great day dear!

  12. TAke care and get well soon! Lovely accessories, I love them too, can't enuff of them.


  13. Love the nailpolish! And, I am a total lazy blob when sick...really a good-for-nothing :-)
