workout gear / the style eater

So there’s something I haven’t shared yet that I’ve been meaning to tell you and I wanted to make sure it stuck before I started really bragging about it, but I started working out. FOR 7 WEEKS STRAIGHT NOW. Can you believe it? Sorry for the iPhone quality pic by the way, we can’t all be top bloggers.

But it took 28 years and a planned wedding to really kick my ass into gear. I’m doing a 12 week program by Kayla Itsines called Bikini Body Challenge. Have you heard of it? It’s genius. I’m feeling really great about it, but it’s also f’ing hard as hell, excuse my language. Anyway, I promise to share all my thoughts on it, including some before & afters, because what’s a workout post without before & afters? But first, let’s talk about something more important:

Workout clothes.

Sure I’ve always owned workout clothes but I never needed them until now. So that means I’m getting lots of use out of them, but also I’m desperately in need of more. Like way more. Anyway, I figured the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (best sale of the year IMO) would be the perfect time to stock up because it’s all the new good stuff but for cheap.

I have my eyes on these sneakers, these leggings (I’m all about breathable material), this sports bra (I got a small chest so I’m fine with the low-impact bras), this racerback tank, this long sleeve tee, and these sweatpants for post-workout comfies.

Here’s everything from the sale that I’m eyeing (if you’re in Feedly, click the post title to view!):

Also, if you’re not taking advantage of this Kiehl’s lotion during the Anniversary Sale, then you are MISSING OUT.

Wearing Outdoor Voices in the jump roping pic, specifically this bra and these pants. Also, no one told me that jump roping is a swift kick in the pants. Such a good cardio workout (omg I don’t know who I am anymore).

kiehls creme de corps

This essential is a no-brainer for me. I’ve been using Kiehl’s Creme De Corps lotion for about 10 years now and I have no plans of swapping it any time soon. In fact, I stock UP on this stuff. I’m talking Costco-sized bottles every time Nordstrom has their Anniversary Sale (aka the best time to buy Kiehl’s IMO). I also make sure I have a few travel bottles on hand for when I go anywhere.

Every morning I lather the heck up. The best part about it? It doesn’t sting my legs after I shave!! That is so key, am I right? The consistency is super thick and slightly greasy, but it soaks in almost immediately and leaves my skin feeling 100% hydrated. At this point, I can’t live without it. Mom, thanks for putting it in my Christmas stocking every year or else I’d probably be broke from buying too many bottles.

I get it here and here.

10 Can’t-Live-Without’s

April 29, 2010

Filed Under : BEAUTY - EAT - STYLE

Everyone has certain things in their life that complete them.  Of course my family, boyfriend, and friends are at the very top of this “Can’t Live Without” list but I also have 10 other vitals that I’ve come to depend upon.

  1. Tea: I have tea, whether it be iced or hot, all day long.  Some of my favorite tea brands are Revolution, Tejava, Republic of Tea, Harney & Sons, and…well, I could go on forever but that’s a blog post within itself.
  2. Cupcakes:  Of course this one isn’t as vital, but cupcakes are one of my favorite things to indulge in.
  3. My iPod:  Yes, I said iPod.  You’re probably wondering if these old school contraptions actually still exist, what with all the iTouchs and Nanos and Shuffles, but they do!  My iPod has been so good to me over the years.
  4. Erin Condren Life Planner: Of course I went into detail about my day planner here and let me tell you, it keeps me so organized and together.
  5. Strawberry Chapstick: I’m talking about the actual Chapstick brand in strawberry flavor.  This chapstick is much more than a beauty essential to me.  I keep them well stocked too: 1 in every drawer of my nightstands, stashed in every purse, in the glove compartment of my car, in my desk at work, everywhere possible.
  6. Kiehl’s Crème de Corps: Kiehl’s is my absolute favorite brand for lotions, moisturizers, and body washes.  I’ve used Crème de Corps for years now and it’s the only body lotion that truly soaks into my skin and keeps it hydrated.  I use it everyday!
  7. Moleskine Notebook: For Christmas last year, Kyle gave me a Moleskine notebook so that I could write down all of my thoughts, ideas, inspirations, muses, and random notes.  Whenever I have something I need written down, my Moleskine is always there for me.
  8. Cadbury Mini Eggs: If you know me at all, then you’re fully aware of my unhealthy obsession with Cadbury mini eggs.  I have absolutely NO willpower when a bowl of cads are dangled in front of my face.  Just the fact that I know they’re available on Amazon (see link) during the off season should say enough.
  9. Monthly Mags: Whether it be an InStyle, Elle, or Cooking Light, I need a monthly fix of my mags.
  10. My blogs: Just as much as I need a monthly magazine fix, I also need a DAILY blog fix.  Blogs have become such an integral part of my life and reading them is the highlight of my days.  From personal style blogs to food blogs to my friends’ blogs to profesh blogs like Refinery 29, I need them every day (every hour is more like it).
