Omgomg it’s my birthday. It’s finally here!

I think my birthday and Christmas are my favorite times of the year. Probably because I get presents on both of those days. But you know what? Today isn’t going to be just about me. Sure it’s my Birthday but I as I stated a few weeks ago, I wanted to share my birthday love with all of you guys out there!

I’ve been busy the past month, talking with my favorite companies and brands out there and they’ve donated so many wonderful things for you guys. I am so very appreciative of my loyal readers, people who leave sweet comments and of course, my lurker friends.

So, I’m giving back today. I’m giving you all a chance to win something! Not to each and every one of you because I have only a limited amount of things to give! But you know how it goes. Let’s get right into it because hello that is the most fun part of this post, right?

Look at all the goodies you can choose from!

How I Style… + GIVEAWAY!

How I Style… edition 11, moses!

Last week you saw how I styled my favorite brown cardigans. This week isn’t much different. It’s how I style beige cardigans! Ha.There’s a lot. Again.

Check out previous How I Style posts below:

Week 1 // Week 2 // Week 3 // Week 4 // Week 5 // Week 6 // Week 7 // Week 8 // Week 9 // Week 10 //

ANOTHER surprise giveaway for you guys today! I didn’t realize that Tropicana wanted me to publish my blog post before the end of January so here I am trying to get this together for you guys. My coupons haven’t arrived in the mail yet—they’re getting sent in from the United States. But I wanted to post the giveaway up so you guys can be eligible to win a $50 Spa & Wellness Gift Cards by Spa Week.

I also wanted to mention the new juice that came out which is called Trop50. It has 50% less sugar and calories with no artificial sweeteners. You can even get a coupon code for $1.00 off Trop50 and enter a  sweepstakes  for a $1000 gift card (no purchase necessary). You just have to tell them what your New Years resolution was. It ends today though, so hurry on over and see Official Rules for details.

What is Trop50?

The reason I had no trouble posting the giveaway is that I remember trying the Trop50 juice out back in August when I was in San Diego for BlogHer, not that you guys would be getting it – the winner remember will get a $50 gift card to Spa Week. Back to Trop50: It was refreshing, and I remember drinking the pink flavored one which is appropriately called pink lemonade.

1 Winner will be chosen for the $50 gift card, and it’s only open to residents of the USA. Enter below:

My CrossFit Journal (week 49) & GIVEAWAY!


Week 49 Day 1.

7 Rounds

7 Front Squats; 165/115lbs
7 Chest To Bar Pull-ups

We had a 20 minute time limit and I finished my workout in 19:50. My wrists killed from the front squats. I lifted 55lbs in total, which was plenty. Since I still can’t do strict pullups on my own, unassisted I did 10 kips each round instead of 7 chest to bar’s.



Week 49 Day 2.


“Fight Gone Bad”
3 Rounds:

1 Min Wall Balls; 20/16lbs  (I used 12lbs)
1 Min SDHP; 75/55lbs  – I went all out and used the 55lbs!!
1 Min Box Jumps; 24/20″ 20 inch box jumps. Totally doable
1 Min Push Press; 75/55lbs  Yep, I used 55lbs for this one too
1 Min KB Swings; 20/16kg I dropped down to 12kg for these
1 Min Rest

It didn’t seem like a bad workout, I mean it’s only 15 minutes right? It left me breathless and I stumbled to the bathroom to catch my breath and wanting to puke at the same time. I LOVE these WODs the best. The faster the better. I’m so self-competitive, I don’t want to give up.

I also have a little surprise for you guys today! I last spoke about Goody Hair ties in a recent YouTube video that I filmed.

I thought it was appropriate to host this giveaway on my 3 weeks shy of a whole year at CrossFit. I always wear my hair up when I go to work out, of course. Since I have long hair and all. Here’s a recent find and fav of mine, the Goody Doublewear products. When the elastics are on your wrists, they look like little bracelets! Cute right? I’ve been wearing them mostly on my wrists at work as decoration. But they’re always around when I need to put my hair up. Which is never, unless I workout, which is always after work. Does that make sense? lol. DoubleWear allows you to wear a hair elastic on your wrist (and even now on your neck) and have it double as jewelry. The bracelets look great stacked with other bangles you may own. I’ve seen them displayed at Walmart, Shoppers DrugMart, and Loblaws.

What one’s are your favorite? Silver or Gold? I’m definitely loving the silver ones. Anyway, if you want to win all of the Goody DoubleWear items shown above, just use the form below and comment away! Good luck!
