Finding the motivation to work out can definitely be a struggle, but having the perfect outfit to workout in can really push your butt to the gym.

I recently connected with Lexie, the founder of a fun workout line for women called “Life by Lexie.” The workout line features dozens of tops with cute sayings perfect to motivate you to reach your fitness goal. Along with clothing, the line features cute accessories like sticky socks; which are perfect for barre classes.

I absolutely love my Life by Lexie tanks. My go-to is the “Leggings Are Pants” tank. It can be perfectly paired with a pair of black leggings (with mesh cut outs to spice up the look), sneakers, a pair of headphones and a s’well water bottle.

Life by Lexie apparel is so versatile. It can be worn out on a day running errands too! The “Coffee, Because Adulting Is Hard” tank can be paired with a pair of black ripped jeans and fashion sneakers. Don’t forget to grab your tote bag and jean jacket before heading out the door.

Fairfield University to Become a Tobacco Free Environment

Treat Yourself This V-Day: Dark Chocolate Obsession

Happy Valentine’s Day! Do you know what is my favorite part about Valentine’s Day? It is a free day to eat all of the chocolate you want without being judged for it. And no one has to know who bought the chocolates for you.

So if you have no one sending you chocolates today, I have a recommendation for you to treat yourself.

Heifer’s Market Place is my Valentine this year and they can be yours too! They sell the most amazing chocolate. It is smooth yet rich, and I am absolutely obsessed. The Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels are my favorite! Did I mention dark chocolate is actually good for you?

Not only are these chocolates delicious, but sales from each box help to support small-scale Ecuadorian farmers.

I would highly encourage you to treat yourself to a box of these. I may or may not be half way through my box!

Hannah and Derek Jeter Are Expecting Their First Child

jeter-hannah.jpg

Hannah Jeter announced she is pregnant in an ode to hubby Derek Jeter and it was the cutest thing ever.

The power couple is expecting their first child, a baby girl. Hannah explained they have not decided on a name yet, although Derek will call asking how so-and-so is doing using his preferred name for the baby.

Along with the announcement of their pregnancy, Hannah took to theplayerstribute.com to share the story of how she met the Derek Jeter we have loved for over two decades of baseball.

The ode was a real tear-jerking piece. I’m actually still in tears. Hannah explains that the timing was just right when she met Derek, and everything just fell into place. Their love story truly is one of the most realistic ones. It is all about timing, and finding someone who is at the same stage in their life as you.

A big congratulations to Derek and Hannah, we all can’t wait to see baby Jeter!

Grammy’s 2017 Best Dressed

The 2017 Grammy’s Red Carpet was by far one of the best. I can honestly say I was pleasantly surprised by every dress that was seen down the carpet. There was a ton of uniquely styled dresses this year, everything from Tom Ford to Gucci made an appearance. Here are the best dressed celebs of the 59th Annual Grammy Awards.

Rihanna:

Although my roommate compared Rihanna’s attire to a spider, I was in awe. The giant puffy skirt was very unique, and of course Rihanna kills it with a bright orange top.

Katy Perry:

At first I was a bit confused by Katy’s look, but after watching her memorial interview I realized only Katy would be able to pull off this look. Oh and the new hair color is gorgeous. I think I’m loving the blonde more than the blue California Girls’ wig.

Jennifer Lopez:

The sexy slit honestly just made my girl crush for Jen increase immensely. J-Lo looked absolutely stunning in this dress. She crushed the red carpet strutting down in a gorgeous pair of Christian Louboutins.

Carrie Underwood:

Carrie is literally #goals. If anyone could rock a dress on the red carpet without blending in it would be her. She literally stood out.

Heidi Klum:

Heidi’s dress was very simple, however can we talk about how amazing she looks. Side note for those of you who did not know; Heidi is 43 and still can pull off a tight, short dress. AH-MAZING. Seriously.

Chrissy Teigen:

Chrissy looked so gorgeous in this patterned look. The fringe bottom was a unique touch, while the side cutouts make the dress super sexy yet sleek.

Kelsea Ballerini:

I honestly had no idea who Kelsea was until I saw her on the Red Carpet. However, aside from not knowing, I instantly fell IN LOVE with her dress. The floral design is chic and fun!
