Sweet Beats // January 2015

january15

This winter has been doing some work on me in terms of my health. I’ve been trying to stick with that resolution to exercise regularly, but it seems like every time I get into a rhythm my body chooses to shut down and get the flu… and then I faint on a train. Did that actually happen? Yes. Luckily I didn’t fully lose consciousness, a kind samaritan gave me his seat, and I was already on my way to the doctor. So it was pretty much a best-case-scenario.

Anyways, this playlist will hopefully help us all out with the fitness routine, granted we’re all in good health! I’ve found these songs to have a pretty solid beat that’s ideal for zoning out to. You can get a good run on with Lion Babe, Blacroc is perfect for strength training, and stretching feels amazing while zoning out to M.I.A. Get out there and kill it, ladies.

As we begin our gradual transition into fall (le sigh), our wardrobe must do the same. An easy way to do so is by adding some structure to your ensemble, yet continuing to show off that tan you’ve worked so hard for. Shorts and a blazer are a great way to do this, and the look can easily transition from day to night with a simple swap of the shoes. Shout out to Gal Meets Glam for inspiring us with this killer look!

The Oscars // Fashion

Obviously we couldn’t start off this week without talking about our Oscar fashion favorites. These ladies and gents pulled out all the stops to look their freshest, and we can’t help but notice. Here are some of our tops picks from the evening…
