What I'm Pinning Lately

I have been turning to Pinterest for everything lately (you can follow me here). Cleaning tips, recipes, workout ideas, you name it-I've been pinning it.  Here are a few of my favorite things I've been pinning lately.

For my closet

I'm not ready for summer to leave but I love everything about this outfit from her olive skinnies to that precious scarf and especially her hair!  Anyone know how to get those curls let me know!


I recently purchased this skirt and I have so many things I want to pair it with!

For my kitchen
Pasta Sauce and Zucchini Noodles

I am obsessed with zucchini noodles lately and this just seems like the perfect sauce to go with them!

Whole Foods Chicken Salad

I made this last night and while it's good, I need to love on it a little bit and add some things.  The avocado is definitely a great substitute for nasty ol mayo.

For the gym (or barre class)

As much as I want to love it, I hate running so it is so hard for me to get good cardio in. I love that this is not only working your whole body but it changes throughout the whole thing so you're not doing the same thing over and over.


Some of these I'm going to incorporate in my barre classes.  Such great moves for toning and leaning out those arms!

For my soul

Saw this on instagram yesterday and it almost brought tears to my eyes.


Always good to remember!

What have you been pinning lately?

Tattoos and Song Lyrics

If someone paid you a million dollars to get a song lyric tattooed on your body, what song lyric would you choose and where would you get the tattoo?

Oh the things we see on Facebook.  I saw this question floating around my news feed last week and thought it was fun.  I personally don't have any tattoos (you're welcome Mom) but I have always thought about getting one. I have always wanted a small bird on my wrist but I can never make myself pull the trigger.

Now if someone was offering me a million dollars to get a tattoo you can bet I'd be in that chair faster than anything!

I've thought long and hard about what song lyric I would choose. I LOVE music and have several songs that mean a lot to me.  However, there is 1 song that I am most loyal to. I have loved this song for as long as I can remember. One summer in college I worked in a karaoke bar back home and I made fast friends with the DJ. Anytime I'd come home to visit and I'd walk into the bar, the DJ would instantly play this song (he also played I Like Big Butts by Sir Mixalot when I was there but that was a whole different story)! This song always puts a smile on my face and if it's playing at a wedding or a bar, I'm the first one on the dance floor.
I mean how can you NOT like this song?!?!

That answers the song part of the question but what about the where part?

I think if I had to get a whole lyric then I would put "Don't Stop Believing" along the instep of my foot. If I could just get 1 word then I would put believe in small letters on my rib cage.

What about yall?  What song lyric and what body part would you choose?

When You're Sick, Go Shopping

Happy Monday lovebugs!  I hope everybody had a fabulous weekend.  I unfortunately was a little sick most of the weekend with sinus junk. If this Michigan weather would make up its mind my allergies might not go so crazy!

Linking up with my girl B!

Friday, we were supposed to meet some friends for dinner but I decided I needed to rest and go to bed early. I spent the night on the couch catching up on my DVR and watching The Other Woman.  I was hoping to be back to 100% Saturday but unfortunately that was not the case so after taking a barre class I stuck pretty close to the house.

Sunday I woke up feeling a tad better and decided the only way I was going to feel 100% would be to do a little shopping.  I took advantage of a few sales and ended up with some new pretties for my closet.
Saw this on one of my favorite fashion bloggers and just had to have it!

I've been waiting for this maxi skirt to go on sale!  This beauty has MAJ walkability!

New workout top!

Lovely new sandals on sale for the end of season.

I can't believe it's mid-August already.  Where the heck has summer gone?

Friday Favorites: Holla!

Happy Friday!  I don't know about yall but I felt like this week lasted FOREVER! I did get to have some much needed girl time last night with some yummy food and great wine. I may have had 1 glass too many last night from the way I'm dragging this morning.

Yall know the Friday drill around here! Linking up Amanda!

Favorite song
Like a Drum - Lauriana Mae

One of the girls I taught dance with in Dallas sent me this song this week and it's been on repeat. Love the beat and the big band sound.

Favorite Recipe
Autumn Chopped Salad

While I'm not quite ready for it to be autumn yet, I couldn't resist this delicious looking salad.  I adapted the recipe a big but here's a link to the original.

Favorite Movie Release

So if you remember back to this post then you know I loved the movie The Other Woman.  I wanted every piece of clothing that Cameron Diaz's character wore.  Well this movie came out on On Demand this week and I fully intend on watching a few times this weekend from the comfort of my bed.

Favorite Reality TV Ladies

Carole and Heather are 2 of my favorite reality ladies and this picture made me giggle!  I love both of their spunky spitfire personalities. Can we just talk about how hot Miss Radziwill is with her blonde hair?

Happy weekend loves!
