I’ve got another dress from Tobi for you today because their deals are too good to pass up! This dress is only $24 right now! Say what?!? Hurry over and grab it because you can style this so many ways! I think it would look so cute in the spring with a denim jacket or at a summer concert without the long sleeve underneath and boots!
P.S. I’ve kind of forgotten how good deals at the outlets actually are. This bag was 50% off at the Michael Kors outlet store at the Outlets at Traverse Mountain in Utah! I went shopping at a bunch of different stores to put together a Valentine’s look for you (and an upcoming giveaway!) and I couldn’t believe how good the deals were! They have J.Crew, Loft, Banana Republic, Nike, Coach, and so many more stores that have outrageous sales! I’m talking up to 80% off at some of the stores!
Have you guys heard of Tobi yet? If not, you need to check them out! They have so many cute items for such a good deal and they always have discount codes! For example, right now everything on their site is 50% off until 1/31! So that makes this gorgeous sweater dress only $29!!! Use the code: PK50 to get it 50% off by 1/31!!
P.S. Henri Bendel just released new items!!! I’m loving this grey Carlyle Tote! It goes with everything and it’s the perfect size for sneaking treats into the movie theatre…ya feel me?
If any of you follow me on snapchat then you probably saw the little disaster that happened on this shoot. Actually it ended up not being too bad, but it could have been so much worse! We drove out towards the Spiral Jetty in Utah to shoot, but we didn’t realize exactly how bad the roads would be. Jordan and I had a little accident where we spun off the road and got stuck in a ditch because of the snow! Oopsie! Haha if you follow me at all, you probably also know that I have had the worst luck this month with cars…I got side swiped on the freeway in early January, got a flat tire in my rental on the way home from another shoot, and this little incident…sooo needless to say, I feel like I probably shouldn’t get into a car anymore! We were in Jordan’s car, but I feel like I brought on the bad luck. :/
There was no service where we were so we started trying to dig the car out of the snow. After that didn’t work we figured we had better start walking to find service. The Spiral Jetty is kind of in the middle of nowhere. So we started walking…and walking…and walking…no bars! I felt like the guy on that commercial waving his phone in the air to try to get service…o wait, I was that guy. But, you guys will not believe it! After not seeing another car the entire time we were there, a tow truck drove by! What? How in the world did we get that lucky? Plus he didn’t even charge us! #blessed
Like I said, it could have been much worse! I was worried we were going to have to sleep in the car if it got too cold and dark to keep walking. But we got the car out and were able to get some shots! Hallelujah!
This dress is from Bling It On Dress Rentals. I thought it was perfect for Valentine’s or a Sweethearts Dance, but it also kind of makes me think of Star Wars for some reason? Anyone else? I love the flowing panels and how unique the neckline is. Bling It On has tons of cocktail and formal dresses available to rent! We all know how much money buying a dress costs, and you only get to wear it once anyway! If you are in Utah, I suggest visiting them if you have any upcoming events or dances!
This is a hard post for me. I have been extremely lazy about working out this year. I had been swamped with work and blogging, and I was just exhausted. One of the first things to go was the gym. I just didn’t have time. Besides the fact that my body obviously did not stay in shape, I noticed a huge change in my mood. You know the whole endorphins thing (think Legally Blonde)…well it’s true.
The past few weeks I have been working with Trainer Kelli through the Level 212 Fitness App. I’m starting to see some progress already, but I think the biggest change is that my mood has improved! I feel happier and like I have more energy. I always thought I would get more tired if I worked out, which happened at first, but overall I feel much better and have much more energy during the day. I also sat down with Kelli this week and we went over how important wellness in all aspects of our lives is to our health! While I am working out with her app about 3 times a week right now, I am adding some wellness components to my training. My project for this week was to make a list every night of the things I like about myself. Surprisingly and sort of sadly, this was really hard for me. But as the week has been going on it’s getting easier. Which is also why I decided to do this post.
When I first got these photos back I did not want to post them. I am not in shape. I am soft. My arms aren’t toned and my jeans don’t fit right. I have always been small, but there is a big difference between being skinny and being in shape. I have struggle with being unhappy with how I look for a long time. I have tried extreme diets and I have gone about “getting skinny” in some unhealthy ways in the past. With Kelli’s training plan I am hoping that I can adopt some healthy ways to get in shape! I hope this will be motivating to you guys as well! So I decided to still post them because I am trying to have a healthier view of myself. I don’t need to continue to dwell on or list all of the things I dislike about my body, but I can work on improving them. This is where I am starting. This is a good motivator to get back in shape and improve myself as a whole. I think being able to feel about myself mentally is just as important as keeping my body healthy and in shape. I can’t wait for you guys to come along on my journey and see the results!
