WorkOut Biggest Loser Style

One of my TV guilty pleasures this year is watching, Biggest Loser every Tuesday evening. It is very inspiring to see the struggles, ups and downs, but more importantly the achievements of the contestants.

Not only do I watch the show, but my Lil Diva enjoys the show as well. So, because of this we always make sure that all our chores are done by 7:30pm. To give you an idea of how much we enjoy Biggest Loser, during the introduction episode where all the contestants are introduced, Lil Diva was surprised to see Santa Clause on the show!

No, not the real man Himself, but a very close look-a-like! During the first challenge, Lil Diva was screaming, (at the top of her lungs, mind you),"Come On Santa! You can DO it! You got to work it for the reindeer back at the North Pole!"
How is that as a motivator? If only the contestants could hear our words of motivation!

Ending this post with that same spirit, the team at allyou.com sent out a "freebie" email containing a downloadable Work Out Mix . There are six (6) tunes to play during your workout routine. How motivating is that?

To get the download, all you have to do is submit a valid email address.

Don't for my Luvlys, please come back to share your comments. Reading this post, do you feel a little motivation to continue working out?

Party Style Inspiration: The Clutch

It's Friday! As the week comes to an end, we are now looking forward to living it up this weekend. I love the thought of getting a sexy outfit together for a weekend party.  Putting the outfit together is the easy part. It's finding the perfect handbag or clutch to go with the outfit is what can become a challenge.

Personally, I am a strong believer that your handbag or clutch of choice does not have to be color coordinated with your outfit. I love seen ladies dressed in a solid neutral color carrying a handbag in a super bright color! Doing that type of combination is fun, funky, fresh and shows that you actually have a personality!

Whether, your fashion personality is classic, funky, rocker or sassy, take a look at some these clutches by L.A. designer Clare Vivier for some Clutch Inspiration. My personal favorite is this red messenger bag:

Now it's your turn:  What types of clutches are your favorite?

It's All About the TrenchCoat

It doesn't matter where you may live, having a trench-coat is a wardrobe essential. The trench-coat can be worn during the Spring, Autumn, and even during the beginning of the Winter Season.  Wearing a trench-coach can be worn with any outfit, for any occasion, and it can be worn anywhere.

To give you a better idea of the different styles that are available for the Trench-Coat, let's go to the experts at Burberry.com

In my opinion, Burberry has out-done themselves in their Spring 2012 Collection! What's your opinion? How do these styles rank on your fashion meter? Please share your thoughts with us!

Tuesday's Fashion - Forward Accessories

One fashion item that I can't live without is a fashion forward accessory. I love wearing good quality accessories, especially leather belts. Belts are not only to be worn to keep your favorite pairs of jeans in place, but this old time universal accessory has come a long way. Belts can be worn over dresses, skirts, sweaters, and any other way you dream up. Wouldn't you agree?

When thinking of wearing belts, one thing that I just loath is buying a belt and having it wear out and snap just after a few uses. Ugh, can't stand it when that happens! Has that ever happened to you? 

Buy now, you may be asking yourself, "where can I get good quality leather belts?"  I have got you covered! Have you heard of zulily.com?  If you haven't, you better ask somebody!  Zulily.com is a site that has every item you can think of, not to mention they offer a huge variety of deals - everyday!  I love the idea of opening my email to see what deals or "events" zulily.com has going on for the week. It's so easy and convenient - I truly enjoy it!

Take a look at a few belts I found on zulily.com that are currently on sale:


How deliciously fab are these leather belts?  These are just a few of the styles that caught my eye, but Rough Roses,  has so many different styles available in their belt collection, I am positive that you will be able to find one that fits your style perfectly.

The best to get your special leather belt is now!  Rough Roses items are currently priced at 70% off  - This Sale ends Friday Jan 27, 2012 at 6am (PDT)
