New Year - New Resolutions

It's a new year and time to get back on my Peloton!  I keep reflecting on my yoga/hiking retreat with my mother last year at this time and thinking that I need to apply what I learned there to my daily life again!  Nothing gets me more in the mood to work out that new gear! Here are a few of my favorite things:

I'm crazy about my new Misfit that tracks my activity and my sleep!

Love these fun Airbrushed Glossy Leggings.

These Nike Roche Two Sneaker are the comfiest ever - and cute!

Knixwear Sports Bra is my new favorite.

These Birkenstock Shearling Sandals are perfect to wear to a yoga class - easy to put on and off and so cozy too!

How great is this Cozy Convertible Fleece Pullover?  It is reversible too!

Love the look of this Cutout Tee

Twill Ball Cap is a must to cover up my messy hair!

A friend gave me a new Gym Bag and I love it!

Friday Favorites: In with the New!

I'm so excited to get the new year rolling!  Can you believe that it has already been a week?

Here are a few of my favorite things that I promise to take more time to do in 2017:

-Order some Halo Home by KSW linens and Halo Home for Pickard for our new home!  We are like the cobbler's children who don't have shoes!

-I swear that these hangers changed my life but I've been sloppy about using them lately with the move.  It is time to get them back in action!

-Read more - This is on my list.

New Years Eve Outfit Recipe

Looking for a new look to kick off 2017?  I put together a little recipe for you to help you create a bold and sparkly outfit that is sure to stand out!

Start with a figure flattering sparkly dress:

Add a dramatic dangling earring - pick something long that will move when you hit the dance floor!

A warm and shimmery lip gloss will complement the look.

Pair it with a strapy sandal.

Finish it off with a warm and spicy fragrance.

Boxing Day Made Easy - CallBox Storage

I just love Christmas!  If you are anything like me you have nutcrackers on your mantle, stockings hung at every chimney, and a nativity by your front door.  I put away my every day china and pull out my Spode Christmas Tree China to use for the season.  I burn holiday candles every day and decorate every inch of the house. 

But then Boxing Day rolls around and I have to admit that I kind of look forward to putting it all away and starting fresh!  I love boxing up the stockings and decorations and carefully packing them away to pull out again next year. 

 I have so many sentimental decorations - like the snowman made of terry cloth from my childhood to the creche that my parents gave us the first Christmas that we were married.  They mean a lot to me and they are not easily replaced! 

I asked my grandmother to needlepoint stockings for my children but her eyes were bothered by the canvases I took to her so she taught me to do it instead.  I made both of these stockings for my little ones so it is important to me that they are stored properly when they aren't hung!

That is why this year I am packing my boxes and signing up for CallBox Storage.  They pick up your items for free and inventory them at no additional cost. Then next year when I am ready to get them back out, they deliver them back to my door step!  No hassle and no space taken up in my garage!  I know my husband will be thrilled!  I should have wrapped this idea up and put it under the tree for him!

If you want to hear more about their services you can check out their website or watch this segment from Good Morning Texas.  I hope you will call them too!

This post is created in partnership with CallBox Strorage, a company I love.  Thanks to wonderful brands like CallBox Storage, I am able to bring this blog to you!
