Staying Comfortable During A Workout

For me, getting to the gym or to my workout is the hardest part.  I have to mentally prepare myself, get ready to sweat and work hard, choose an outfit, dedicate the time, and then put the work in.

I've worn so many different brands and pieces, and I've had workouts where my clothing has been so comfortable I never thought about it, and I've had the complete opposite where all I focused on were how my leggings were showing every drop of sweat, or they were drooping down my waist, or maybe my pants had a hole in them (true story, this happened one time).

If you're going to make the effort to workout, you at least owe it to yourself to be comfortable!

Being comfortable and feeling good when I workout is so important to me, so I was very excited when Tommy John included me in their graphic.  Check out this fun graphic below for my quote as well as quotes from a few other fitness enthusiasts! 

Tommy John Underwear

I like for my workout clothing to be pretty form-fitting -- It ensures that I won't be fussing with a baggy shirt while I'm moving around, and I can't stand baggy tops during a workout.  I like to feel at least semi-put together during my workout, so I usually opt for a pair of high-waisted leggings and a cute crop top/sports bra.

If you haven't checked out Tommy John's cotton briefs, click here to check em out.  Yeah, it's only September, but holidays roll around before we know it, and we're all probably secretly counting down the days until December.

They'd make an awesome birthday, Christmas, or ( need new underwear) gift.

Let me know if you all have any tips for staying comfortable when you workout.  What do you usually wear?!

Adidas Try On / UltraboostX

Happy Monday!

Seriously, what's Monday motivation without some new workout gear?  There's something so exciting about having a new piece to wear to the park, the gym, your yoga class, whatever you do.  I love incorporating a new outfit or shoe into my fitness wardrobe!

I'm always preaching that when we look good, we feel good, and vice versa.  I'm not a fan of wearing makeup to workout (to each their own), but I do notice that when I put a little effort in to getting myself ready for a workout, I'm inclined to perform better.

Same thing with work productivity -- If I want to get sh*t done, I'll put some effort into my appearance.  I tend to feel a little more motivated when I'm semi "ready" rather than in my robe, hair in a bun, and my glasses on (...I'm like that right now).

This look from Adidas is one of my favorites right now.  My go-to is a pair of high-waisted leggings, a crop top/sports bra, and a comfortable shoe.

I love how versatile and supportive this top is.  If you're smaller chested like myself, this is great for you, but this would be great for fuller chests as well, since it does have pads and some support.

These leggings though...YES!  I love the waist band and the small details down the leg.  I could never have enough pairs of perfect black leggings.

K and let's just talk about these shoes.  The UltraboostX is popular for a reason.  They're SO comfortable, functional, and this color is amazing.

Y'all know I'm a neutral girl, but I couldn't pass up these UltraboostX in pink.

Check out my try-on haul on YouTube for more Adidas Women looks.  Please 'subscribe' and give the video a thumbs up if you like this style and want to see some more videos like this!

Huge thank you to Adidas for sending me these items!

Fenty Beauty

Oh man.  You all probably already know that Rihanna has launched her makeup line, Fenty Beauty, and let me tell is nothing short of amazing.  Not that we'd expect anything less from Ri, but she came through!

I knew I had to get my hands on a couple products from the line.  As much as I wanted to blow all my money on the entire line and try everything, I'm ballin' on a budget right now, so I had to be selective with what I purchased at Sephora.

I went with the Fenty Beauty Profilt'r Foundation in the shade 210, the Glossbomb, and the Killawatt duo in Ginger Binge.  I love everything.

Plus, Rihanna killed her shade range with a whopping 40 shades.  If you're familiar at all with the cosmetics industry, you know that (unfortunately), it's not often that a company goes all out with their shade range and truly takes the time to put out a variety of undertones in fair, light, medium, tan, dark, deep..everything.  Fenty Beauty did such an awesome job with their shades and provided a match for women of different nationalities and ethnicities.  YAS, Rihanna!

Take a look at my full makeup tutorial showing the products I got from Fenty Beauty along with a few other of my current favorites.  I l-o-v-e how pigmented the Killawatt duo is on the eyes, and it really makes my green eyes pop!

Have you all tried anything from the line?  If you have, what are your favorites?!

Healthy Grocery Haul

Happy Saturday!

Some of you guys are probably getting your weekend errands done this weekend, which most likely includes a trip to the grocery store.

I don't know why - Sometimes I love going grocery shopping, and sometimes I can't stand having to make the trip to the store.  Depends on the day...Either way, it's a must for staying in shape, eating right, and saving some money.

I love shopping at Trader Joe's.  Their prices are right, produce is fresh, and the entire shopping experience makes grocery shopping a little more enjoyable.  I swear, their employees are the kindest I've met.  One guy even opened a chocolate bar (cookie butter, to be specific) at the register while I was checking out and split it with me.  True story.

I uploaded my healthy grocery haul to YouTube and hope it helps anyone who might be wondering what to buy at the grocery store, what a few of my staples are, and a few ideas of items to keep on hand.

I'm planning on doing much more content centered around my meals, food, and how I like to eat to maintain a balanced lifestyle.  And trust me, I love to eat.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

What's up, everyone?!

Apologies for being a little MIA the past week and a half or so.  It's been one hell of a week here in Houston, and blogging and filming wasn't a priority when the entire city was in chaos.  I wasn't sure what day of the week it was the entire week, but I'm glad that the storm is over.

The entire city truly came together and supported one another.  Seeing people from both near and far drive down to help complete strangers was beyond moving and showed me that there are so many amazing people out there.

I'm still on the YouTube grind and filmed a "get ready with me" video talking about all types of things - From the Fenty Beauty launch, to eyebrow threading, to the Houston Rockets being sold, and whatever came to mind!

I also linked a few ways to help donate to the Hurricane Harvey relief for anyone who might not know where to start but wants to help.  Everything is linked in the description box of the video below.

Let me know what you all think of this style of video and I'll keep filming!

Current Favorites

Yes, I'm a hoarder when it comes to my beauty products.  I think it's safe to say I save any shade of blush for a rainy day and find every excuse in the book to not throw out a lipstick that I might've purchased back in high school.

OK, so that's a little gross and probably just a slight exaggeration of how long I keep my products, but I like to have options.

I've tried my best (and succeeded with much of it, if I do say so), to declutter my space, and that meant getting rid of tons of makeup, clothes, shoes, and things that were taking up space and providing zero use.

I've narrowed down my products to the things I use consistently and love (and I can't lie, I still have options, but not nearly AS MANY options).

I've rounded up a few of my current favorite things in the beauty, fitness, and random tech world.  These are the things I've been using consistently for the past few months and have to share with everyone!

Please subscribe to my YouTube channel if you haven't already!  I'm vamping up content and think that video is more compelling -- It's fun, interactive, and I get to just be myself and talk which is always fun.  Not that I don't love to write, I do, but I think we enjoy watching and listening to something online!

My blog will always have a big piece of my heart though -- It's the OG!  Holdin' it down.

Anywho, let me know if you have tried any of these things and love them as much as I do or if you plan to check any of them out!

You can shop everything I mentioned in the description box of the video, or I've linked them all here as well!

Clear Skin With AcneFree

This post has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and AcneFree.  All opinions are mine alone.  #AcneFreeSummer #AcneFreeLife #CollectiveBias

Ah, acne!  How I despise you so.  Chances are we all had a little run-in or two with some not so friendly visitors on our face at some point this summer.

Summer is very sadly coming to an end, but that doesn't mean that having clear skin has to!  Just like a healthy workout routine should be year-round, so should your skincare!  I'm always taking care of my skin with the right products and change them up just slightly throughout the seasons.

If you've been following my posts, you aren't new to my handful of photos from Greece and Israel.  I traveled for just over two weeks and basked in the Mediterranean sun makeup-free for days.

Yes, I wore sunscreen.  Don't come at me!

It might sound silly, but before leaving for my trip I was worried about my skin.  I knew I wasn't going to wear much makeup, and definitely wasn't going to be wearing foundation, so I did everything in my power to keep my skin clear and acne-free.

AcneFree Sensitive Skin Cleanser

I know how important clear skin when it comes to our confidence.  In high school, I broke out like crazy my junior year and couldn't figure out how to tame it.  I was trying every product on the market (mistake number one), and I was so impatient and frustrated when it came to finding the right products.

Hover over this image to shop these products!

With back to school season around the corner (or already happening for some of you), I knew it would be a great time to talk all things clear skin, confidence, and to talk about some products that give my skin the TLC it needs.

I've been using the AcneFree Sensitive Skin 24 Hour Acne Clearing System + Spot Treatment to keep my breakouts at bay, and I am seriously impressed.
