Fashion Friday: Hollister Jeans

Yesterday, I used the coupon I got from Hollister a couple weeks ago. I ended up buying Jeans. They were on sale for 50% off and then the coupon was for an additional 25% off. I got these jeans for 19 dollars and change.

I have also been eating not so healthy these past couple weeks. My goal is to start eating all natural foods again. Only things that grow in the earth and are not processed! I have more energy and just feel better when I eat healthier. I also need to limit my coffee intake. I'm up to having about 2-3 cups of coffee twice a day! I also want to start doing gymnastics inspired workouts. These workouts require mostly no equipment and they are very effective to get you in very good shape. When I was a gymnast I was in the best shape of my life! I will try to be posting my workouts regularly and also more of my healthy foods that I am eating!

Cool Fitness App: Endomondo

Smart phones are great to track runs. It tells you how far you have gone and how many calories you burned. I have tried various different workout tracker apps to keep track of my runs. Some of these include Run Keeper Free and Trainer Lite. A lot of times they lose GPS reception and I don't know why. So far Endomondo is my favorite. It does not lose reception and it was easy to sign up. All I did was put my email and made a password and after my run Endomondo automatically uploaded my time to its website. This app told me how many calories I burned. It also has a heart rate monitor, although my phone does not have this feature. One of the coolest things that this App has that sets it apart from the rest is a section where you are able to chose what kind of workout you want. Your options include: Basic-just track your workout, manual entry-enter a workout manually, Set a goal-Choose distance, time or calories, Beat a friend- go against a friend's personal best, compete on route- download a route, beat the champion, or Beat yourself- go against a previous workout.

If you have a favorite app be sure to leave it in the comments so I can check it out!

Favorite Finds: Hollister Co.

Hey Everyone,
Sorry I have been slacking on the blogging this past week. It's hard to blog 3 times a week and do school work and everything I have to do. I found some cute items from Hollister Co. In the past Hollister clothing did not fit me. I feel like they gear their clothing towards skinny, stick straight people. People with no curves at all and this is not me. Even though I knew this I decided to go into the store because their was a lot of sales going on. I ended up finding some shorts and a tank top.

I love these shorts! They actually fit me great and are really comfortable. They feel like jeggings because they are super stretchy and soft denium material.

I also got this basic tank top that would look great layered with another shirt or sweater over it.

At check out I also got this coupon. I will have another Hollister Co. haul soon!

Fashion Friday: Plato's Closet Labor Day Sale!

I decided to go to Plato's Closet on the Saturday before Labor Day. They were having a 50 % off sale on shirts, tank tops, and dresses. I sold about 30 dollars of my old clothes to Plato's Closet. The clothing below ended up being about 7 dollars all together.

This shirt is from Forever 21. I have trouble finding long sleeve shirts that fit my arms without being to tight. This one has a little stretch to it so it was perfect.

This cardigan is from The Limited. It is a nice basic to have in my closet.

This dress is from Forever 21. It is form fitting at the top with a cut out back and has a bubble shape at the bottom.

This dress is from Express. I wore it to class yesterday. It was very comfortable. I took the pin off when I wore it to class. This is a dress that you can dress up or dress down.

This summery dress is from Forever 21. It is a little short but it would be fine to just be walking around the mall.

I hope everyone had a good Labor Day!

Fav Finds- Thrifting Shoes

I found these at a thrift store in Lakeland called 360 Unlimited. I don't go to thrift stores that often but 360 Unlimited is so cool. It's not just like goodwill. They set the shop up very nicely so it's easy to see everything and fun to look around the shop. I found these shoes and just had to buy them because of how unique they were.

The brand of these shoes are Zigiosho. They fit me perfectly! These shoes are kind of high so they are not the best heels if you need to be walking around.

Fashion Friday: Fall Essentials

To start off with this post let me just say that I love Winter! At least the winter I am used to...No snow just cooler weather with no humidity. For about two weeks now I have been feeling like the weather is changing. Now in Florida it does not change much, but it still changes. The humidity is slowly going away and the wind is kicking in. It smells like cooler weather. It's just plain easier to breathe. I can't wait until it is actually fall here. So since I am in the mood for the cooler weather, I am doing a Fall Essentials post for Florida.
