I Wanna Rock!

My honest to goodness lifelong dream has been to be a rock star...yep, it's true.  And when asked what clothing group (or stereotype) I would pick for the rest of my life if I had to, I would want to choose rocker clothing (w/ faux fur and pleather of course).  How much fun is rock n roll clothing?  It just makes you feel powerful and AWESOME.  I love throwing on big fur jackets, leopard, and Doc Martens, just to name a few standards.

Has anyone else thought of what clothing stereotype they would either already most likely fit in or would choose if they had to pick one for life?  Let me know!

And I leave you with the following images,

Recently I became a group fitness instructor and this week adding that to a daily workout schedule has turned me into a gym rat!  Because of this, I haven't worn anything fashionable in days (is that really an excuse?).  So I haven't posted...and trust me, my gym clothes look nothing like the above photo.

After spending more than 4-hours doing various workouts on Monday alone (and no, I don't recommend this to my readers), I have spent the week feeling like the Hulk.  Not in the way that my muscles look massive or anything intense, but because they feel like they're constantly tight (and thus, constantly sore!)...like I'm going to burst! 

And today I started thinking, isn't it funny that the idea of a "gym" even exists?  The fact that we lift weights and run in place on treadmills is interesting when you think about it.  The reason I love the gym is because I love experiencing the great things my body can do.  And yes, I LOVE SWEATING!  It just makes me feel...alive!  But back in the day (and in other parts of the world today), the gym was likely a comical idea.  People were just fit because their lifestyles demand it.  Now we hardly have to manually work for what we eat and use and live in and only those in extreme manual labor professions can really say that the idea of a gym is probably unnecessary to them.

Fascinating?  I think so...and maybe I'm not even making myself clear enough because I am in awe of the idea.  I absolutely love the gym (and doing various exercises elsewhere), but thinking about it, it feels like I'm building muscle for either health or vanity alone...it won't effect how efficient I am in my daily activities...likely why people avoid it unfortunately. 

Happy Workouts!

PS I leave you with one more "Gym" fashion shoot:

So though I am disappointed that I did not take photos of all of the lovely outfits the ladies wore to Sex and the City 2 night, I do have a few photos from our Cosmo adventure.  And yes, I was ticked that the glass was shaped thus (though it was a nice glass).  The second photo is of my beautiful mother in a stunning blue dress and the last is of Katie in a fun and funky Rachel Roy dress.  I was with her when she scored this fabulous Rachel Roy find from one of our favorite "Buy, Sell, Trade" shops on the west coast: Crossroads Trading Co.

Anyone else have photos to share from a night out with the girls?  I'd love to see them!  Email it!

Until Next Time,

Summertime and the Livin's Easy

I was able to pick up this GREAT D&G tank for just $24 at a consignment shop!  I love finds like that!  And it's definitely a great one for the summer...nice (not see-through) white fabric and fun hawaiian flowers.  Gotta love a good find.

Enjoy the heat,
