I am so excited to have Majestical Jewelry on the blog today! Have you seen their amazing jewelry before? If you haven’t you should check out their website. Its full of everything a girl could want! The earrings that they sent me I absolutely love! I have always thought gold and tortoise make such a great combo! These tortoise earrings can be dressed up or down. I can see these beauties paired with a cute military green bomber jacket, black leather leggings and a pair of black booties. But then I can also see these with a pretty white baby doll dress, gold wedges and an adorable leopard clutch! How would you wear these fab earrings?

Its starting to get really warm on the West Coast! We’ve had beautiful weather the last several months, but tank tops and shorts will definitely be due before May! I am trying to enjoy my blazers and jeans a little while longer. My hubby bought me this adorable Nautical Blazer from Michael Kors for Christmas…and it seriously is one of my faves. I love how navy is so versatile like black is. I pair navy with all sorts of colors. I usually pair my navy clothes with orange, red, coral…etc. but I decided this time around to pair it with this super comfortable yellow tank from Rubbish. I love chunky jewelry, so I definitely layered that on and I pulled out a great purse I haven’t used in a while, you can never go wrong with Furla! Is there a color you find super versatile…like navy and black?
Happy Wednesday! Today’s Workout Wednesday is all about STRETCHING…do you do it regularly? If not, you should. The older we get the importance of stretching increases. We all know that stretching increases range of motion and flexibility, but why do so many of us neglect it? Hopefully I can give you a few reasons why you should definitely be stretching and you will begin to add it to your regular fitness regime.
Benefits of Stretching include: helps lengthen muscles (you know, that long and lean ballerina body), helps decrease injury, increases blood and nutrient supply to muscles, which helps reduce muscle soreness, helps correct posture. Stretching not only helps your physical body, but your mind too. Stretching can calm your mind, while also helping to reduce stress and tension.
The list of benefits for stretching is long, but hopefully the few that I have included and the exercises I have suggested today, will have you on your way to including stretching in your fitness regime. Be sure to Download your PDF Copy of Stretch it Out!
Photo shoots with the hubby are always so fun and he always seems to capture my funny moments and my personality. This photo-op was near a very pretty Catholic Church. Our weather right now is so beautiful! Cold weather friends are jealous of our 70 to 80 degree days.
I love leopard, I get it from my mama (she loves leopard)! I think there is something so feminine and sexy about leopard and red, plus I paired it with this amazing Fiorelli faux fur bag and it makes it so glam, wouldn’t you agree?!? I love the color, texture and print combinations with this outfit. I also am head over heels in love with my BCBG shoes! What are some of your favorite color, print and texture combinations? Comment below, I would love to hear them!

Hope you all had a great St. Patrick’s Day! Did you all do anything fun? I had a very busy day at work and I am excited to pick my husband up from the airport. He has been in Spain for a week without me! So not fair (those Soccer boys)! I am excited for him to be home and to see all the cool pictures and videos he took though!
What do you think of my jacket and leather top? Super cute, right?!? I scored both from Marshall’s! I just love that place! I also am wearing one of my fave wedges from Sam Edleman – his shoes are ah-mazing! I also love Seven jeans – they never do me wrong! I was felling a little Raquel (Rachel in Spanish and my mom almost named me this) and Roll with all the leather – a little fun play on words!
It is workout Wednesday and I am excited to share with you the importance of omega-3′s in your daily diet! Did you know the fisherman were onto something when they collected oil from liver of codfish and used it to soothe aching joints and troublesome skin conditions, as well as common cold symptoms. While their reasons were subjective rather than scientific, little did they know that scientists would eventually back up their findings? Omega-3 benefits include improved heart health and cognitive function, anti-inflammatory effects, decreased depression and even reduced cancer risk. In fact, a recent study from Harvard research identified low dietary omega-3’s as the eighth most common preventable cause of death in the United States today. Omega-3’s are naturally present in foods such as fatty fish, flaxseed, seaweed and walnuts. There are numerous benefits to omega-3’s and we have so many ways to consume omega-3’s. You can supply your body with omega-3’s by eating anchovies, sardines, salmon, cod, chia seeds, flaxseeds , flaxseed oil, krill supplement, algae supplement and of course omega-3 supplements. My favorite ways to add Omega-3’s to my diet is through a vegan supplement! I don’t always eat enough fish and I hate the fishy aftertaste you get from taking omega-3 supplements that are made from fish oils, instead fish oil supplements, I purchase a vegan source of omega-3’s and I am able to avoid that fishy after taste! I also enjoy adding flaxseed to my recipes and protein shakes! Chia seeds are also getting a lot of high praise too! Have a happy and healthy Wednesday!
P.S. Chia Pods are great! But I make my own recipe at home – which is super easy and a lot more friendly on the grocery budget! I will share the recipe soon!
