FAB ABS PART 1




Top: Splits 59 / Bra: Lululemon / Bottoms: Lululemon / Bracelets: Laura & Lily / Socks: Pure Barre / Mat: Pure Barre

Happy Tuesday everyone! 
With swimsuit season here I wanted to share a few ab workouts to make you look even more amazing in that bikini! The second move is killer for flattening your core.  Start off with arms and legs long on the floor. From there use muscle to move your upper body up, and lean forward to tap your toes. As you lean back to the mat, bring your legs up at the same time (legs at a 45 degree angle). From there use muscle to tap the finger to the toes. Hold at the top. From there the legs and arms lower down at the same time on the mat so that your body is one straight line (starting position). 
With the 4th, and 6th move repeat the rep for the other side. 
Tune in tomorrow for FAB ABS part 2!

Lounging in Linen

With summer temperatures rising inArizona, I have become desperate in finding apparel that will give me some relief from the heat. Sure I have tons of skirts and shorts, but I still needed an alternative to protect my skin from the sun that is breathable. I found the solution!
Linen! 
Now when you think of linen, you probably think of it wrinkling (my hesitations as well). Still desperate to find new breathable materials, I decided to get these Caslon pants. Ta-Da! My prayers have been answered! With the design of the pants being flowy, it prevents any wrinkles to form! These pants were not only comfortable, but EXTREMELY breathable.

Sorry that there was not a post yesterday. I spent the entire day with Todd. As of Wednesday he is officially done with his first year of dental school! Words can't describe how proud I am of him, and the hard work he put in this year. He put in so many late nights, put up with my early alarms on test days, and endless hours of studying! His dedication and hard work is an inspiration to me, and will make him an amazing dentist!

Mothers Day

Dress: Remain (old similar here) / Hat: Target (recent) / Sunnies: Michael Kors / Necklace: Nordstrom / Belt: Gap Kids / Watch: Michael Kors / Bracelets: F21 here & here, CC / Lips: Mac-Lady Danger

I hope you all had a wonderful mothers day! I wanted to dedicate this post to the three women that have had a tremendous impact on my adult life. They might not be my mother by blood, but I still consider them to be my mothers.

Vanisha aka Mama Nish. Vanisha is the mother of my best friend, and I have known her since middle school. She was always there  by my side during break ups, school drama, learning how to craft, and was my escort during my wedding. Maybe it's the fact that we both can't sit still for one minute, always tinkering with something, that has made us so connected. I feel incredibly blessed to be so close to a woman that I can text pictures from miles away, and tell her to be proud of me for growing my own tomatoes (successfully). Love ya mama Nish!

Chris aka Chrissy Boo. Chris is my mother in law, and is probably the sweetest woman I have ever met. She always finds the positive in every situation. When I was getting married, she held my hand through the process of going through the temple. Her support and love is something that I will alway cherish. The best part of her is that she raised the most amazing kiddo who is now my husband.

Of course I saved the best for last. My mom Karen. She is a crazy, funny, goofy, and loving. Apple doesn't fall too far from the tree. She loves her family so much, and does anything she can to keep us all close. With living in Arizona, and not able to visit much she always makes the extra effort to make our time together special.
She is always the life of the party.
We have a relationship were I can talk to her about anything, and everything!
She gave me life, put up with me during adolescence, and has been there for every part of my life.

Be sure to check in tomorrow for a special giveaway ;)
