Cute Workout Clothes: Keep Your New Year’s Resolution in Style

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

Do you make new year’s resolutions? If you do, chances are good that one of them is to get in shape.

One of the biggest roadblocks for me getting myself to the gym or outside for a run is – well, okay, the biggest roadblock is the 19 inches of snow that fell last week. But the SECOND biggest obstacle is a shortage of cute workout clothes.

It’s amazing what a difference it makes when I have something cute to work out in, it’s clean and I’ve laid out the whole outfit the night before. No excuses.

Here’s a roundup of some of the cutest workout clothes and accessories I’ve seen lately. You can click directly on the image to go to the item’s page. I’ve been wanting one of those FitBits forever, and that ski suit ALMOST makes me want to learn to ski (almost).

Slumber Party!

Friday, December 21st, 2012

Some of my favorite New Year’s Eves as a kid were good old-fashioned sleepovers: a sappy movie, a bowl of popcorn and some hilariously green mud masks to ensure we all look bee-yoo-tee-ful. Some friends and I had a slumber party a few years ago to relive the old days and it was just as fun as I’d remembered them: staying up all night talking, eating terrible snacks and doing each other’s nails.

Here’s a roundup of ingredients for a super sweet slumber party.
