healthy body happy mind

Just returned from a week in NYC and off to VA beach for a weekend getaway… the hustle has my mother dearest reminding me that a healthy body and happy mind keep illness away – take care of both to keep the doctor away! No life support called in yet – so looks like that department is going pretty well so far. Keeping things simple and following a happy, logical outlook makes it simple to keep the head held high . The warm season has reduced my time allowance for fitness procrastination, so finally taking steps forward on that healthy summer bod (and considering I’m out of breath climbing three floors to my apt, looks like there’s some serious work to be done). photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | essential tank c/o:AMVI | essential leggings c/o:AMVI | flatform shoes c/o:WINDSOR SMITH | green tea c/o:MATCHA TEA | timepiece c/o:RUEBEN RAY | silver rings c/o:EVERY MONDAY GHOST Trying a new Matcha green tea powder that promises to boost the metabolism and increase energy to give me that …

sunday morning

And weekends at home – don’t even get me started. My daytime wardrobe is lucky if it finds me. Lazy you say? Comfy, I answer. #truestory photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:NIKON D90 | bralette c/o:TRUE & CO | cuff c/o:MADELEINE ISSING | rings c/o:KINDLING & COMPANY | geo necklace c/o:KINDLING & COMPANY | hotel:W HOTEL Another great wake-me-up in the am – yoga.

athletic lounge

Lazy in athletic wear a contradiction?… nah. Ok but for real, the gym is calling my name. Returned from Las Vegas last night, and my liver is begging for a cleanse. Goals for the day: leave work on time – get my sweat game on. In other news, had a great show at WWDMagic, and some of my favorite shoes are already sold out for next Spring! Had the opportunity to meet some key blogging influencers at the convention. It’s really incredible the amount of support in the fashion community. Whether people are doing it for a hobby or career, I’ve yet to be welcomed with anything but open arms and freely shared advise and encouragement. A special thanks to Linh Nguyen from Linhwinn for taking a chunk of time sharing her experience on such a personal level. Her advise: be personal, have some fun, and always stay true to yourself. In that same spirit, I’ve recently connected with a new friend, Soraya who has just launched her very first blog The La La Mode. She’s got a …
