Forget Going Out, I'm Working Out

Having a wide selection of activewear clothing always keeps me motivated to workout even on the laziest of days. Of course, clothes are my motivation. I think you could ask any pageant girl or model that living a healthy lifestyle is crucial to be successful in the industry. I mean this in multiple areas including nutrition, fitness, a well-balanced schedule, and positive outlook on life. I've been super aware of these factors and it has gotten me to be a lot more in-tune with myself. Even small lifestyle changes lead to big results in the end, so I highly suggest to begin somewhere. Besides my fitness addiction, doing things like drinking a gallon of water a day and eating clean (with the frequent occasional cupcake) can make a huge difference... #Gains. The athleisure look is highly seen in my wardrobe and during my cardio sesh I wore this two-piece set from Sammydress. It is super breathable and and comfy for all types of workouts. What is your go-to workout routine?

StyleWe Love List

1 // 2 // 3

Bonjour mes amours.
I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and my favorite, Black Friday! I am so thankful for finally having a school break for the last few days, so I could finally catch up on blogging projects and doing things for myself. I bet many of you have just began the long list for Christmas shopping for friends, family, and yourself. I was browsing through StyleWe and came across some of the best sales around at the moment. I decided to pull a bunch of pieces to make one solid gift guide featuring what I have my eyes on. Let me know what your favorite thing is below!

Model Off-Duty

I have to admit that I am ridiculously bipolar with my style and I love it. I get bored with everything so quickly no matter what it is. For some reason, I am one of those people always seeking change and a new adventure. Trust me, it's a fantastic lifestyle and it speaks in my style. I dress for the occasion, my mood, and whatever is inspiring me at the moment (and this can literally be anything from a color to a high fashion editorial, or something 100% random).

Let's Pretend It's Summer

Sometimes I feel like being a little flower child. All it takes is a good boho-esque dress and a pretty necklace from Zaful to create a look that seems like you tried, but in reality you got dressed in less than 60 seconds. Plus the weather has been so bipolar it isn't even funny, so I was able to pretend it was summer and get away with wearing this slit-dress. We all know the sassy tone in Miranda Priestly's voice from The Devil Wears Prada as she says, "Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking." Hopefully I satisfied her by wearing them in the fall instead.

"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style." -Maya Angelou

I just wanted to start things off with some nice words to live by. Keep on building the empire that you love my darlings..!

Now let's get on topic...so this summer I was really interested in veganism after doing research and watching Raw Alignment on YouTube for extensive periods of time. Not trying to make excuses, but I realized a few weeks in how difficult it was to completely commit with the type of lifestyle I currently have. Surprisingly though, I did pretty well during my trial with eating by the rules and I still try to eat vegan food as much as possible. For the most part I was never really into eating meat and I avoid dairy a lot anyway because it can have negative effects on the body.
