Have a FABB Monday!

We interrupt our regularly scheduled workwear for the ultimate sartorial adventure.

I’m thrilled to be in L.A. today to experience Lucky Magazine’s bloggers conference, LuckyFABB first hand.

I’ll be reporting live all day so be sure to follow the twitter stream here - The hashtag will be #luckyFABB. I suspect the fashion inspirations are going to be endless!

Here’s to a high-styled week luvies,

Let’s Get Physical

We’ve talked about a lot things around here over the years, but never fitness – even though it’s another major passion of mine! An athlete and general health enthusiast for my entire life, I never turn away from an opportunity to try something new. It’s really the only way to keep working out interesting, right?

I’ve attempted everything from Bikram yoga, to Pilates to CrossFit to marathon running and most options in between. But it wasn’t until moving to San Francisco that I discovered GYROTONICS at a health and wellness studio called A Body of Work.

What first appeared to me like a medieval torture device turned out to be a really incredible invention that lets you work muscle tone, flexibility, balance and get your heart rate up all at the same time.

Working one-on-one with a trainer for hour long sessions, you go through a series of movements using pulleys, cranks and your own body weight that work everything from arms to abs to legs to butt. You know, the important parts!

I’m going to be doing two sessions a week for the next month and I can’t wait to report back to you about my results!

Happy {Back to Life} Weekend

After a week of rest and relaxation I’m feeling almost ready to renter the hustle and bustle. Almost….

For the moment, I’m going to meditate on this little mantra as I ready myself to kick it back into high gear.

And I’m going to have to be ready to bring it! Next week is jam packed with some amazing events!

Tomorrow the famed Kinfolk Magazine dinner arrives in San Francisco. I’m eager to see what familiar and new faces I’ll run into there. If you don’t already know Kinfolk get thee a subscription immediately {first issues are already going like hotcakes on eBay!}. The incredibly talented team behind the mag have decided to take their mission of celebrating small gatherings on the road, hosting dinners around the country. If they’re headed your way be sure to sign up!

Then Sunday I hop down to L.A. for my first ever LuckyFABB Bloggers Conference! I couldn’t be more excited to meet a bevy of style-minded west coast bloggers and the entire Lucky Magazine team. I can hardly believe I’ve read that magazine for 15+ years and now I’m attending their conference. Yet another reminder of why I love blogging. I’ll be sure to keep my satorial radar on high alert. I have a feeling I’m in for a very good showing!

And all that happens before Tuesday! If you need a few things to keep you busy this weekend here are some fun ones:

~ We had a really good time in Palm Springs as evidenced on Instagram.

~ I discovered the joy of this lovely libation.

~ Victoria shed light on some great fashion mysteries.

It’s also nearly the end of April…can you believe it? I want to be sure to thank all the lovely sponsors we’ve had on the blog this month including Seren & Lily, the lovely NY boutique Poppy, Ruby Lane, ShopPrettyMommy and newcomer Urban Decals. We are now accepting sponsors for May and beyond so please hit me up if you’re interested! Details are here.

And since I did manage to unplug a little bit this week, I didn’t have a chance to uncover a new class of Noteworthy Newbies. Have you discovered any lately that you think make the cut?! Let me know about them in the comments – I’d so appreciate the tips.

Till Monday luvies,
