Living A Healthy Lifestyle

Good Morning Loves,

If you've followed me for a while, you probably know that living a healthy lifestyle is something that is really important to me.  Today, I am excited to share with you three of the ways I balance a busy schedule with living healthy.  

1. You are what you eat.  Before I go any further I must tell you, I do NOT stick to this rule 100% of the time.  I love pizza and ice cream just as much as the next girl.  However, it is not something I allow myself to enjoy every day.   In order to live a healthy lifestyle I try to eat as healthy as possible while not depriving myself of things I want and enjoy.  During the week, I start my days off with a wholesome breakfast… eggs and fruit, cereal with fresh berries on top,  or a whole grain bagel with low-fat cream cheese.  For me, it is important to get the day started off right.  If I grab fast food on my way to work, I am much more likely to eat something not so healthy later on in the day.  For lunch I like to keep things lite…grilled chicken salad or a turkey sandwich.  The more I eat at lunch the more sluggish I feel throughout the rest of the day.  When it comes to dinner time I try to have at least one green thing every night… a salad, green beans or broccoli.
2. Going to the gym is not one of my favorite things to do.  But, being active is.  So, I like to find active alternatives to the gym. The hubs and I are lucky enough to have a college with a beautiful campus right outside our back door.  On a crisp, cool spring evening we love to head over and walk around the campus.  There is a beautiful lake with many different gardens and who doesn’t love to stop and smell the roses?  Our home, at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains, is also wonderful because it has several beautiful state parks with great hiking.  Depending on the weekend, we may go for a quick morning hike or a longer hike that takes the better part of the day.  And of course, you know my favorite way to be active is shopping.  Yes, I do believe “hiking” around the mall after work in a cute dress and pumps is considered being active, which leads me to my third and final way I enjoy a healthy lifestyle.

3. As a fashion lover, there is nothing that makes me more motivated to be active than all the bright, cute, comfortable, activewear out these days.  The new C9 by Champion brand at Target has some great options for fashion forward activeware that meets all of my needs.  For a top I love this fit and flare tank. Not only does it come in great neon colors, but it’s not clingy to your body so you can move around without feeling tight and uncomfortable like some activewear. Since it’s still a bit cool in the mornings and evenings here, I like to pair a tank top with a longer bottom like these knee pants and a light pullover like this super soft jacket. For the hot Summer months, I can't wait to try these cute running shorts paired with this neon sports bra. Wearing the perfect activewear allows you to feel feminine and motivated while enjoying your active lifestyle.

What motivates you to live a healthy lifestyle?


Here are a few of favorite picks from Target's new activewear line:

Pickwick & Weller

Good Morning Loves,

I'm so excited to announce that today, one of my favorite brands, Pickwick & Weller, is launching their new Spring line!  Read the article below for more information:




Ashton Kutcher’s Fashion Startup, Pickwick and Weller, Launches Luxury T-Shirt Collection for Spring 2013 
Latest product launch boasts design-focused styles in high-end fabrications to embody the creative professional’s work attire 
SAN FRANCISCO – APRIL 2, 2013 – Today Pickwick and Weller, the luxury t-shirt company that redefines the concept of modern workwear, launches their spring 2013 product line, complete with new designs for both women and men. Similar to the company’s introductory t-shirt line, the design is sophisticated and polished, using fine and local fabrications. Setting this collection apart from Pickwick and Weller’s first batch are brighter, more varied color-ways, and additional fabrics including silk, modal-cotton blends, supima cotton, cashmere, and linen. 
“We are thrilled to have expanded our product range and variety, and couldn’t be more proud of our upcoming spring launch,” said Ryan Donahue, co-founder of Pickwick and Weller. “Our mission as a company is to continually develop and innovate the creative professional’s work attire, and we found the core of every great outfit is a well-fitted, highly designed, and luxuriously fabricated basic tee.” 
While Pickwick and Weller may have a celebrity founder, their tees couldn’t be more accessible. All t-shirts are designed, produced, and manufactured in Los Angeles, with many tees priced below $30 each – providing contemporary, modern pieces, fair pricing, and American made quality.
The spring collection will unfold throughout the season, with additional women’s and men’s products being added weekly. Spring 2013’s first styles to launch include the Margot, Hanna, Ashley, Sonia, Sedgwick, Odine, Monroe, and Hayward for women, along with the Parker, Sullivan, Spencer, Christian, and Graycliff for men. All shirts are available in a variety of fits and cuts, including boyfriend, classic, slim, and long. 
To learn more about Pickwick and Weller, and to scout the latest products, trends, and happenings, visithttp://www.pickwickweller.com/.
About Pickwick and Weller:
In early 2012, founders Ryan Donahue, Ashton Kutcher and Matt Rowe created a sketchbook of drawings that captured their vision of a new luxury basics collection. Driven by their mutual appreciation for understated style and desire to offer a refined take on everyday essentials, Donahue, Kutcher and Rowe established Pickwick & Weller.
A product of the trio's aesthetic taste and modern vision, Pickwick & Weller is a brand as dedicated to designing well-made wardrobe staples, as to providing a high-end customer experience. With sharp, stylish designs and a commitment to developing beautifully crafted basics in Los Angeles, California, Pickwick & Weller is refining the notion of timeless staples, one t-shirt at a time. 

Here are a couple of my favorites--




These are by far the best quality (and not to mention softest) t-shirt and tanks I own.  Check out my previous posts styling Pick & Weller here and here!  Head on over to their site and check out their new line, you won't regret it!
