athleisure black leggings

If you work out on the reg or don’t and just have a high affinity for great leggings, then you need to know about Tepuy Active Wear. I’ve struggled with my weight and body image my whole life and it wasn’t until I started working out regularly and getting into a healthy routine that I started to feel confident and strong.

athleisure

I found a great group of women to work out with and encourage me in a class setting that kept my workouts fun and full of high energy so I wasn’t just standing there thinking about how hard certain things were or how tired I was. When I’m not in classes, my husband does an amazing job of keeping me active and helps me work on my strength and weight training. That’s fun for me too since we always have fun together. For me, the most important things in maintaining my routine and motivation are to feel good doing it and to always be having fun, even if I’m pouring sparkling sweat. Since I pretty much have the fun part down, let me tell you how to feel good: wear the right stuff!!

work out style

It may sound a little silly, but my workouts can be completely miserable if my pants are constantly falling down after a few squats because they are stretched out or if my shorts are a little snug because of the summer treats I’ve had recently. It’s so important to wear the right pieces and feel great in them while you’re working on your fitness – cue fergalicious. I also find that a new gym outfit is motivation to get your butt to the gym. Naturally, we are typically very excited to wear our new pieces no matter what category. I have found a good formula in my Nike tempo shorts. Sometimes they annoy me but overall they are a good fit for me and I have a trillion pairs because they come in the prettiest color combos. Finding great pants has been a nightmare. My girlfriends and I complain all the time about how ours constantly fall down before, during and after workouts. You can imagine my excitement when I discovered Tepuy Active Wear. Y’all! Excited doesn’t even begin to cover it! They feel like butter but better. They have the most amazing fit because they are designed by a woman (a very sweet girl boss that owns the company) and have all my problem areas covered: A generous waistband that hits in just the right spot, a killer side pocket that fits my massive phone and they are the furthest thing from see through. The best part: they held up during my 1 hour class and all my runs this week and never moved an inch. I didn’t tug them or adjust them once and that’s when I was truly sold!!! They offer the most amazing prints and patters but I opted for the black because I’m #basic and wanted something I could wear with all my tops. By all my tops, I mean ALL because I plan on wearing these ALL. THE. TIME.

I’ve linked my pair below so you can shop them now and my tank is only $5 right now and comes in some seriously amazing colors. Hope you guys have the best Saturday and enjoy whatever it is you have planned. I’m finishing this post just as I am about to hop out the door for boot camp so I can get my workout in before I really start my day. It’s supposed to be gorg here in NC today so get outside and enjoy it!

Cart Contents // Vacayyyy

Happy Friday Jr. Y’all!!! I am pretty excited about the weekend – hooray! I am also pretty excited to be at home this weekend. You ever have those times when you just need to be home and low-key and just get stuff done??! We are traveling so much this Summer it gets easy to get behind so I’m overly pumped for a weekend of nothing, but mostly cleaning and maybe a little cyber shopping. 😀 Now that it is officially Summer, I’m looking for those super easy pieces that I can wear when the temps are scorching hot. It’s already been sizzling here in NC and I know the beaches are getting the heat too. I’ve teamed up with Zaful to help me get ready for my vacation next week and I’m sharing some of the items that are currently in my cart.

Halter tops are making a come-back y’all!!! and this one is super cute!! You know I am a sucker for white and this one is super versatile and can be worn with shorts, or skirts or just over your bikini if you happen to need a store run.

The color blocking is on point! I love a versatile satchel and this one is still neutral, yet colorful and works really well with a lot of my wardrobe.

This fab lace dress style is everywhere and is perfect for Summer weddings or date nights.

Love love love the yellow gingham on this matched set! Need I say more?!?!?

 

Pink scallops are ALWAYS a good idea.

This knotted wrap shirt dress is an easy go-to for work or play and is also completely appropriate for the office post-vacay.

 

I’ve linked everything for you here so you don’t have to scour the site looking for these beautiful pieces (but you’ll want to see what else they have). What are you taking on vacation this year? Any go-to pieces or trends you don’t leave home without?!

halter // satchel // lace dress // gingham match set // swimsuit // wrap dress

 

Thanks to Zaful for sponsoring this post! All opinions, pics and comments are my own!

Professional teeth whitening at home

I don’t know about you guys but maintaining truly white teeth has always been a challenge for me. I am a true coffee addict and always drink dark drinks without a straw. Basically, I do everything wrong! Even though I have tried several whitening methods in the past, none could keep my teeth at the current level of white much less improve the color. I’m sure you guys can attest it is super frustrating when you just can’t get the results you want. Continue reading
