One month down

Since I felt super rushed last Friday on a personal post, I wanted to connect a bit more with you as I head into this month, and just let you know how I’m doing with the new years resolutions too *wink*.  The above photo was a behind the scenes shot for the February issue of Zephyr magazine.  I love it because it shows how much fun we had and it summarizes how I’ve been feeling.

This year has kicked off to an amazing start already, I was able to show one of my best friends Bella Lily Bridal – Brenda gave me the key and we sat around for a good 15 minutes after store hours turning on the lights and chatting in the space.  Then we walked a few stores down to The Melting Pot for a lovely girl’s date!


Speaking of food, Blue Apron has turned my mediocre cooking into #bestwifeever. This has been the best change this year! If you are interested in signing up, and I mean seriously, leave me a message with your email and I’ll send you the two free meals offer, which is only good if you subscribe, they are not just two free meals.  I only have three and once I send them out even if they don’t get used, I can’t take them back so only if you are going to sign up!  You won’t regret it, I promise.

Look – chicken tacos!


I have yet to drag myself to the gym or work out, but have you heard about ClassPass?  It’s a workout pass for $79 a month and you can take up to 3 classes at any partner studio but you can take unlimited classes across the board.  They have quite a few cities across the country and Phoenix is included with a map of workout locations. I need to check it out but here’s the link they offered my readers so you can bypass the wait list (in any city).  See, sometimes it pays to read my posts, right?

Next month, please make sure you read, I have a giveaway coming up in regards to clothes!

I need an excuse to buy these Elie Tahari pants I’ve had my eyes on:


I think I need the whole outfit and I certainly wouldn’t mind looking that hot when I worked out. That reminds me of how I used to look going to the gym on campus when I was in college *wink*

My other resolutions – juicing and waking up earlier, meh.  They say only a few resolutions stick and so I’m happy that the cooking one has – a huge life changer.  My issue with the Nutribullet Rx is that my drink isn’t cold like Jamba Juice – and no I’m not running it on soup mode, I did that accidentally and I know I don’t want blueberry soup again!

So far so good on the budgeting, well kinda. I can always be better, good thing this is a short month, ha!  How was your first month of the new year?
